Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Well you might have noticed my book list on the right and see that I am reading the whole Harry Potter series back to back. I just recently finished Goblet of Fire and the movie came out today and was anxious to see it.

My first impression was that it was a Cliff notes version of the book. They cut so much out that it felt like the movie was on fast forward. I think it was better than the Prisoner of Azkaban though.


Lets see some of the things they left out (there are more but here are the highlights):

  • Riddle family murders

  • Bertha Jorkin

  • Potter at the Dursleys

  • Mr. Weasley "flooing" to pick up Potter and confronting Mr. Dursley

  • Winky the house elf

  • Percy Weasley (Weatherby)

  • Ludo Bagman

  • Fred and George's bet

  • Team Mascots

  • Who won the Quidditch World Cup game

  • Ministry of Magic protecting World Cup

  • Potter, Weasley, Malfoy's in box seats

  • Death Eaters attacking muggles

  • Weighing of the Wands

  • Potter resisting Imperio Curse

  • Bagman and the Goblins

  • S.P.E.W. and the House-Elf Liberation Front

  • Return of Dobby

  • Return of Sirius

  • The giant spider in the maze

  • Explanation of Priori Incantatem

  • Potter giving the Triwizard Cup winnings to Fred and George

  • Rita Skeeter being able to turn into a bug
