DVD Review

A couple of weeks ago, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was released on DVD. It was the first of the Harry Potter francise to be given a PG-13(US)/12A(UK) rating, and rightly so. Although most of the film is no scarier or darker than the others, the climatic scene where Voldemort returns, kills Cedric and duels with Harry would be extremely frightening for young children.
The film overall is very good, and for any Harry Potter fan - a must see.

The extras on the DVD for me are just ok. The deleted scenes are always worth seeing, but as with the other Harry Potter DVDs, abundant in games that as an adult, I'm just not interested in playing. There are some good behind the scenes footage though, and a good interview with the cast by Richard Curtis, who is the well known British writer of films like Love Actually, Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill.
