harrypotterSo, I went to see Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire last night, and while it was for the most part entertaining it still suffered from many of the problems that I mentioned in my 7 reasons why Harry Potter is overrated post as well as in the podcast discussion between Mark and myself. The pace lagged in parts and there were certain disconnects for me as a non-reader of the books.

However, while watching, I also realized yet another reason why I'm not a Harry Potter fan: Harry himself has no agency in any of the films. If you haven't yet seen the movie or read the book, then I advise you stop reading this post now, as I am about to offer a little bit of a spoiler after the jump.
