Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

We have seen all the Harry Potter movies but haven’t read any of the books. So we saw Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire as well.

This movie was a little weaker than the previous ones in my opinion. Especially the romantic interests subplot didn’t work at all.

Overall, I would rate it 6/10.

  1. I’ve been meaning to comment on this for a while but I haven’t gotten around to it.
    In converting Goblet of Fire to a screenplay Kloves lost much of the plot and feeling from the book. The teenage emotional craziness also wasn’t converted to screen very well as in the book it’s all inferred through conversations which were chopped down to the bare minimum. I left the movie feeling pretty cheated when we went. It’s like he just cut it down to the action sequences, and poor Dobby was cut out (he plays a huge roll in the book). My favorite line where Hermione calls Malfoy a “twitchy little ferret” was missing too.

    There are some thoughts from a Harry Potter fanatic for you, maybe they help, maybe not. I really felt like the heart and soul of that book and of Chamber of Secrets were cut out when they went to the screen.

  2. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

    The fifth movie in the series is shorter and better than the fourth with Voldemort’s return and a sombre mood at Hogwarts. The acting in this movie was also better than the earlier ones.
