It's Harry's third year at Hogwarts; not only does he have a new "Defense Against the Dark Arts" teacher, but there is also trouble brewing. Convicted murderer Sirius Black has escaped the Wizards' Prison and is coming after Harry.
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. Written by
First film in the series not to be dubbed into Icelandic (and other languages alike), where dubbing for theatrical release is limited to projects primarily aimed at children. In fact, even with different ratings of the following films, dubbing did not resume for some of those languages (like Icelandic). See more »
(at around 18 mins) Dumbledore introduces the Bulgarian Sons of Durmstrang "from the North." Bulgaria is far south of England, just above Greece and Turkey, but Durmstrang School is not in Bulgaria. It is in the Arctic Circle, with a diverse clientèle including Bulgarians and Germans. See more »
Have you ever heard the song "Killing the thing that You Love"
OK, as a big fan, I had to see this movie asap. The first thing I was exited to see was what the Weasley twins did to Dudley, but nope, cut out. Then the whole world cup and the Veelas, nope, cut out. Then I thought, they'll have to get it right soon, ha, no flying muggles.
Some thing that I noticed is that Dobby and Bagman were missing. Along with Dobby, SPEW/the house-elf liberation front was missing. Neville was able to dance, and the Cho-Harry-Cedric triangle was all thrown off. Everything, including Dumbledore's emotion, was thrown out of proportion.
Before you judge, or go on, note that I do realize the effort and problems with a book this size.
Anyway. Some of these things were taken out because they were needed to be: Crouch Junior attacked dear old papa, the little joke behind McGonagall putting her hair down, Moody's grand entrance, the mermaid picture helping, Skeeter's "ability", many obstacles on the third task, Harry and the Weasley's in a box with the ministers, and why Krum went all crazy on the third task.
