The latest installment of the Screen Rant’s Pitch Meeting series focuses on Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and all of the plot holes.
Harry Potter and Goblet of Fire is the subject of the latest episode of Screen Rant’s Pitch Meeting series. The Goblet of Fire fourth film in the Harry Potter franchise and the only one directed by Mike Newell. It is based on J.K. Rowling’s 2000 novel of the same name and was released in 2005. (Donnie Brasco). The Goblet of Fire followed Alfonso Cuarón’s Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) to continue the series’ darker tone.
The Goblet of Fire follows the Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) as he navigates Triwizard Tournament in his fourth year at Hogwarts School of the Witchcraft and Wizardry alongside Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Hermione Granger (Emma Watson). Despite his age, Harry’s name is magically picked to compete in the challenging competition, which is eventually revealed to be part of a giant conspiracy to resurrect Lord Voldemort.
Ralph Fiennes as Tom Riddle, alias Voldemort, and Brendan Gleeson as Alastor Moody make their debut appearances in the Harry Potter saga in The Goblet of Fire. It also featured David Tennant’s Barty Couch’s first/last appearance and Robert Pattinson’s tragic Cedric Diggory.
The latest installment of the popular Pitch Meeting series delves into the Harry Potter franchise. The inimitable Ryan George has envisioned The Goblet of Fire’s pitch for Warner Bros., having already covered the first three films – The Sorcerer’s Stone, The Chamber of Secrets, and The Prisoner Azkaban.
The newest Pitch Meeting, as usual, mocks plot errors, contradictions, and outright absurdity. The episode discusses an unusually aggressive Dumbledore, how it’s unexpected that a child died in Harry Potter after four years, the film’s habit of having characters tumble from trees before a dialogue, and how surviving an encounter with the Dark Lord is “effortless, scarcely an inconvenience.” Furthermore, George criticizes the unethical Triwizard Tournament and the lack of parental intervention when children are taken and left to perish.The Goblet of Fire, as previously stated, proceeded to take the Harry Potter films on a new path. The Goblet of Fire broadened the more fantastic Wizarding World by attending the Quidditch World Cup and introducing students from other schools, allowing Rowling’s protagonists to take their first steps toward maturity. However, as mentioned in the Pitch Meeting, it’s odd that all of those pupils spent the entire year at Hogwarts, even those who weren’t competing in the Triwizard Tournament. At the very least, Pattinson’s Cedric Diggory dropped out of trees in The Goblet of Fire.
