This year Hogwarts is to play host to the Tri-Wizard Tournament and someone puts Harry Potter’s name in the Goblet of Fire even when the tournament is not open to the under 17 year olds and when the time comes for the Goblet to pick out the Champions Harry is the forth one to be chosen which isn’t suppose to happen as there are only suppose to be three champions. Harry writes to Sirius black to tell him about the dream and finally gets a reply and he is told to meet black in the common room. Harry is then to start the tournament with the tip off about the first task being dragons from Ron even though they had fallen out. The first task Harry has to get the dragon egg from the dragon. Inside the egg is a clue to the next task which has to be listened to underwater. The second task the champions have to search the lake for the treasures which where stolen. The third and final task where the champions have to make there way through the changing maze to find the centre where lies the Tri-wizard cup. However everything goes wrong when Viktor Krum is put under Imperius Curse , the cup is put jinxed to become a Port-key to Voldemort when Harry and Cedric Diggory both take the cup at the same time they are transported to Lord Voldemort. Where Peter Pettigrew performs one of the 3 unforgivable curses on Cedric Diggory and Harry is locked into a battle against Lord Voldemort. “Dark and difficult times lie ahead Harry, soon we must all face the choice, between what is right and what is easy.” This is the best Harry Potter Film in out of the lot even though they missed out half the book. So you need really to read the book about Hermione and the House Elves campaign to free them. The true story about how Harry learnt the spells for the Tournament the love story between Harry and Cho, plus lots of other funny bits which were cut from the film. Everyone needs to see this film from children to adults, Harry Potter is not just a children’s film it is a story which is made for all to enjoy.

Star Wars 3
09/11/2005
Well the last in the set of Star Wars and what an ending it is where the story shows how Lord Darth Vader became to be and how the Jedi’s ended up being hunted down and the being of the war between the Jedi and the Republic. The story shows how Padme finds out that she is pregnant with Anakin Skywalker’s children and how he is tricked into joining The Sith Lord and the Dark Side and wanting to rule the whole galaxy as he is overwhelmed with power from the dark side. I think that this is the best in the set and a must own for every sci-fi fan with its explosive lightsaber battles and mind blowing story to finish off the story as Star Wars hits Darkest Plot line of them all.
