It is now Harry Potter's fourth year at Hogwarts and he is enjoying his summer vacation with his friends. The movie started with The Quidditch World Cup Final which looked so great on screen. The same frenzy you get during the FIFA World Cup except that it's much more magical and stellar. Also, in this film Hogwarts is hosting " The Triwizard Tournament", an inter-school magical tournament.
The film is also darker than the previous installment, The Prisoner of Azkaban. Eventhough it's 2 hours and 30 minutes, seems like time flies while you are watching this film. I love the music, and how the 2 schools were introduced into Hogwarts it was just oh so lovely.
They did a wonderful job at the underwater scene.
This movie is pretty much a visual treat of the Harry Potter book... and I suggest you read the book for the story.
Watching an HP movie... is really my kind of escape. I just love it.

Quotes I Like:
Dumbledore: Curiosity is not a sin, Harry. However, from time to time, you should exercise caution.
Dumbledore: People change in the maze. Oh, find the cup if you can. But be very wary; you could just lose yourselves along the way.
Voldemort: The Boy-Who-Lived. How lies have fed your legend, Harry! Do you want to know what really happened thirteen years ago? Shall I divulge how I truly lost my powers? It was love. You see, when dear sweet Lily Potter gave her life for her only son, it provided him with the ultimate protection, I could not touch him. It was old magic, something I should have foreseen. But no matter, no matter, things have changed. I CAN TOUCH YOU... NOW!
James Potter: Harry! When the connection is broken you MUST get to the Portkey. We can linger for a moment to give you some time but only a moment. Do you understand?
Cedric Diggory: Harry. Take my body back, will you? Take my body back to my father.
Lily Potter: Let go. Sweetheart, you're ready. Let go... LET GO!
Dumbledore: No spell can reawaken the dead, Harry. I trust you know that. Dark and difficult times lie ahead. Soon we must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy.
Dumbledore: Today we acknowledge a really terrible loss. Cedric Diggory was, as you all know, exceptionally hard working, infinitely fair-minded, and most importantly, a fierce, fierce friend. Therefore, I feel you have the right to know exactly how he died. You see, Cedric Diggory was murdered, by Lord Voldemort. The Ministry of Magic does not wish me to tell you this. But not to do so I feel would be an insult to his memory. Now the pain we all feel at this dreadful loss reminds me, and, reminds us, that though we may come from different countries and speak in different tongues, our hearts beat as one. In light of the recent events, the bonds of friendship made this year will be more important than ever. Remember that, and Cedric Diggory will not have died in vain. You remember that, and we'll celebrate a boy who was kind, and honest, and brave, and true. Right to the very end.
