Harry's fourth year at Hogwarts is about to start and he is enjoying the summer vacation with his friends. They get the tickets to The Quidditch World Cup Final but after the match is over, people dressed like Lord Voldemort's 'Death Eaters' set a fire to all the visitors' tents, coupled with the appearance of Voldemort's symbol, the 'Dark Mark' in the sky, which causes a frenzy across the magical community. That same year, Hogwarts is hosting 'The Triwizard Tournament', a magical tournament between three well-known schools of magic : Hogwarts, Beauxbatons and Durmstrang. The contestants have to be above the age of 17, and are chosen by a magical object called Goblet of Fire. On the night of selection, however, the Goblet spews out four names instead of the usual three, with Harry unwittingly being selected as the Fourth Champion. Since the magic cannot be reversed, Harry is forced to go with it and brave three exceedingly difficult tasks.
My review for the book, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
I think this movie is great but I was missing Winky in it. She was quite a character in the book and I am sad she wasn't even a part of the film.
It was also funny seeing Cedric, or Robert Pattinson, pre-Twilight days. I didn't realize it was him, since it has been a while since I first saw the film in 2005.
The first part of the tournament was definitely more exciting in the movie than I expecte dit to be, and that was awesome. It was such a good part in the book, and seeing it brought to life in the movie being a dragon fan.... well, I was hooked! The chase scene with Harry was unreal!!!
I wish the ending had more to it though.Those who read the book will feel me on this one, I am sure. Still, it was a great movie to watch. Probaby my favorite for book-to-film ratio.
