Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is the fourth instalment of the Harry Potter series. It follows Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) trying to make his way through the Triwizard Tournament with the help of his best friends Ron and Hermione (Rupert Grint; Emma Watson) and a few others. Hogwarts is competing against two other schools, Durmstrang and Beauxbatons, in two tasks before the big finale task – and various fun things in between, like a ball.
I, along with so many others, got into Harry Potter after the first book came out in 1997. Since then I was hooked, I got all the books as soon as they came out and went to see every movie in the cinema, as well as getting DVD copies of them all. GOF is definitely my favourite book, and by virtue of that fact it’s my favourite movie too – even though they’ve left so much out, including one of my favourite parts of the book (the Sphinx ;-;). In another departure from the books, there’s a scene that everyone remembers fondly, in which Harry is selected as a representative of Hogwarts (even though Cedric Diggory, played by Robert Pattinson, has already been chosen as the representative, in the TRIwizard tournament, and despite the fact Harry is too young to even nominate himself). So Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) goes to confront Harry. In the books, he calmly asks him if he put his name in the Goblet of Fire. In the film, on the other hand, this happens:
I love the Harry Potter movies, they always feel a little bit like coming back to your home after being away, when you rewatch the movies after a while. Harry Potter will always be one of my favourite franchises!
