FANTASY-ADVENTURE 2005 MOVIES
HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE
STORYLINE OF THE MOVIE
18th November 2005 is the release date of this movie and the running time is 157 minutes. At Hogwarts, Harry, Ronald, and Granger are in their fourth year. Harry Potter gets out of bed at the Weasleys’ residence after experiencing a bizarre nightmare about the Dark Lord and his Death Eaters, and they are about to go for the 422nd Quidditch Tournament.
Death Eaters attack the campground following the contest. Later, the trio gathers at Hogwarts, where they learn that the mystical school would be staging the Triwizard Competition, in which one student from each rival school and Hogwarts will participate in three deadly tasks. Beauxbatons and Durmstrang arrival (who are competing schools) reveals the rules. Meanwhile, the Headmaster has appointed Alastor “Mad Eye” Moody as the next Defense against the Dark Arts professor at Hogwarts.
Who is Moody?
Moody is a strange man who is instable and he has wildly wandering “crazy eye.” Anyone above the age of seventeen who is willing must write their name in the Goblet of Fire, and the winners will be the Champs of their respective schools. The Goblet of Fire creates three finalists’ names: Cedric Diggory, Viktor Krum, and Fleur Delacour from the respective wizarding schools, and then the goblet generates a fourth, Harry Potter, despite the fact that he is an under-age fourth year who has never competed.
Although Harry claims that he really did not register his name, his choice becomes the cause of rivalry and mistrust among his classmates, notably Ron, who suspects that Harry is seeking to reclaim his place as the center stage. This generates bitterness and distancing between the closest partners for a short time, but it heals quite quickly. Without Harry’s knowledge, Dumbledore tells Alastor to keep a close eye on him. Talking about the fantasy genre and not mentioning Harry Potter isn’t ethical. This one is undoubtedly one of the best movies from 2005, and no one can tell otherwise!
