MOVIE REVIEW: "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" is 157 minutes long. In "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," the boy wizard Harry matures and learns more about his powers. "Goblet of Fire" features the return of the dark Lord Voldemort, who tried to kill Harry. The film is rated PG-13 for sequences of fantasy violence and frightening images. Nell: I really enjoyed the movie. Though they leave out one or two rather important details from the book, I think it does an excellent job in keeping everything accurate.

All I wanted to do Saturday morning at 12:01 a.m. was get my hands on "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," the sixth book in the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, and some 100-yard line wasn't going to stop me. This book continued from Book 5 - "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" - seamlessly, although the intro is quite different than the past books. It seemed to wrap up some old mysteries rather well, like why Voldemort, Harry's nemesis, wasn't killed when his curse backfired upon himself.

"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" is the sixth book in the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, and lives up to the high hopes that preceded its publication. Set in Harry's sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, it is filled with many flashbacks to Lord Voldemort's strange past, and how Voldemort came to be the Dark Lord and Harry's nemesis. This tale has a very good plot, and it's very tempting to stay up half the night reading it, though there are some slow parts to the story.

Cassidy, a fourth-grader from Greencastle, Pa., was one of 15 students who took "The World of Harry Potter," a weeklong class at Hagerstown Community College that is part of the College for Kids Program. "I knew there were some, but not so many," Cassidy said of the number of fans.

Summer reading season is here, and as a person who is supposed to be on the cutting edge of pop culture, I feel obligated to read at least one of the two summer blockbusters, which are the stories of Harry Potter and Hillary Clinton. Choosing between the Wizard and the Lizard is not going to be easy. I'm not real keen on wild, phantasmal flights of fantasy, witchcraft, sorcery and fairy tales. And to be perfectly honest, I'm not that excited about the Harry Potter book, either.
