I think it's a wonderful film, but this scene sealed it for me.
Absolutely. That scene gives me chills.

I really like the scenes in the beginning where they are walking towards the Portkey and then the Quidditch World Cup with all the tents & people & fireworks. A lot of it was just as I imagined in the book.

Re: Say something positive about The Goblet of Fire

I love the part where Ron gets jealous over Viktor Krum at the dancing ball says stuff like, "He's using you" , "he's way too old!", and Hermione starts crying and says something like, "Next time there's a ball pack up the courage and ask me before someone else does!" I reckon that really shows how much Hermione's love for Ron was building up. The overall movie is awesome by the way!

I really liked the scene for the first challenge, where Harry had to steal that egg from the dragon. Pretty close to how I pictured it in the book.

I like the dragon scene. I thought it was a good choice for an addition.

Re: Say something positive about The Goblet of Fire

Honestly, only:

1.) Krum's entrance into the hall (the banging of the sticks and fire, before the lame somersaults)

2.) Cedric's dad's reaction upon return from graveyard

Re: Say something positive about The Goblet of Fire

The graveyard scene, Ralph Fiennes introduced as Voldemort, and Cedric's dad all made the movie for me.

Re: Say something positive about The Goblet of Fire

I actually really liked this movie. It's certainly not my favorite of the series, but it's far from my most hated. Sure, they left out a lot of stuff, but in terms on an actual movie, and trying not to be a book purist, I enjoyed it immensely.

Re: Say something positive about The Goblet of Fire

The part where Ron has to dance with McGonagall, and Fred and George are like, "We're never going to let him forget this, are we?" and then they find Neville dancing by himself later. I can't help but burst into laughter every single time I watch that scene.

Re: Say something positive about The Goblet of Fire

My favorite part was Hermione's pink or purple dress that she was wearing at the dance. She looked really beautiful in it.

I actually don't understand all the hate for GOF. I personally thought it was the best, until I saw DH Part 2.

Re: Say something positive about The Goblet of Fire

I liked the underwater part and when Neville says something like "oh no! I've killed Harry Potter."

Re: Say something positive about The Goblet of Fire

I really like GoF film more than any other. There are so many good bits in it. In the book I found the lake scene slightly boring because it went on and on but liked how it was portrayed in the film.

Re: Say something positive about The Goblet of Fire

I actually love the action scenes in the movie. I thought all three tasks were wonderful. The yule ball was good, there were a couple funny lines. Honestly, the only thing I don't like about this movie is Dumbledore. Its one of my favourite movies though.

Re: Say something positive about The Goblet of Fire

I thought they did Hermione's entrance at the Yule Ball excellently. The lighting and everything seemed perfect. I wonder if her dress was used as a model for prom dresses the following year.

I also liked the entrance of the Beauxbatons girls and the differing reactions of the Hogwarts boys and girls.

Re: Say something positive about The Goblet of Fire

I hated Hermione's entrance. A really minor detail but when rewatching it yesterday I thought she really needs a necklace.

Anyway... something positive... I really enjoyed the interpretation of the Voldemort and Harry fight scene in the graveyard. Just like I pictured it, but even more real.

The Great Hall decorated for the Yule Ball was great! It looked amazing!

Re: Say something positive about The Goblet of Fire

Mr. Diggory crying over his son's body. That scene to me was one of the most haunting in all of the series.

Yes that was a good one, but I missed Ron saying "Don't bother me, I want to savour this moment - Malfoy the Incredible Bouncing Ferret" (or words to that effect, I don't remember the exact quote.)

I loved the Yule Ball, though I didn't like the Beauxbatons uniforms, neither did I like the fact they made Beauxbatons an all-girl school and Durmstrang an all-boy one. I didn't see the point.

The casting of Robert Pattinson as Cedric Diggory was spot-on. Rob Patz looked and acted exactly the way I imagined Cedric Diggory would.
