The Goblet of Fire is my favorite book in the series. It is when everything started to change. At the time when the movie was released I loved it, but as I grew older it’s one of my least favorite adaptation of the books.
I feel like there were a lot of things missing from the movie that should have been added and a few things that should have been revealed later on.
-I think the GOF would have worked well as two movies. This book had so much information.
-I think Barty Crouch Jr. should not have been revealed in the beginning of the movie.
-I wasn’t fond of the first task. I think that sequence in the movie was too long.
-the second task was done well. I wouldn’t changed much about this.
-the 3rd task was nothing like the books. It would have been cool to see all the creatures they had to battle.
-I wish we got to see Charlie, such a disappointment that he wasn’t in any of the movies.
-there are a few other things in the books that I would have loved to see but, it’s been awhile since I read them.

Small Moments in the Films You've Noticed
TL;DR: Are there any small moments you've noticed rewatching the films?
A lot of film teachers I've had, and other film students I've spoken to, whenever you rewatch a film you always notice something different. I had a film lecturer mention to their first year class at uni about a story I told her. I was rewatching Pan's Labyrinth for my coursework, and I noticed little motifs of the faun and the more adult themes that I hadn't noticed before. One of the students in her class said, 'I've already watched La La Land, so why do I have to watch it again?' It's just a moment that stuck with me, and even with the Harry Potter films, I've noticed small moments that I may have missed on first, or earlier viewing.
Let me take you back to my first year at college. We had to analyse a sequence from a film, and I chose The OWL scene from Order of the Phoenix. I repeatedly watched this scene, and even now I would definitely go back and rewrite the essay (which on a slight tangent, I found yesterday). But what I noticed is the dialogue between the twins, which is almost drowned out by the fireworks and the Fireworks score playing over it. One of the twins (I think it's Fred) says, before releasing the dragon,
Fred: Ready when you are.
It took me a good seven or eight listens to hear it, and it's so subtle but works so well with the scene. Like it's all pre-planned except the grand finale. But I love how it's just inserted, like amidst all the chaos, they are still the ones to pull it all off.
What are some moments you've seen from the films that maybe you didn't on your first few watches?
I'd love to know. I'll share another one mine on this thread soon.
