Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: Revisited
Faneditor Name:
Tagline:
As with the Sorcerer's Stone and Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is the kind of Harry Potter movie that - as for my passion and mind - requires a totally different kind of work. The movie itself has many weak beats and pacing issues - as well as a narrative full of oddities, but the thing that really stands out for GoF is a horrible original score, dragged out scenes, rushed plot points and - most importantly - tone and franchise inconsistency. It was for me to fix this.

Brief Synopsis:
The Goblet of Fire needs a much more cohesive tone to follow along with the rest, as the tone of the fourth movie is in many ways quite different from the rest of the series - not just in score and pacing, but in visual style and tone.

I also noticed how Goblet of Fire Director, Mike Newell, tried to get back in some of all the warm, golden, cozy colors of Columbus' entries, and when listening in on the Commentary Track I found it odd how these choices came into play. Prisoner of Azkaban had a silver/brown color palette to it that looked very lived-in and real, and then suddenly Mike Newell decided to throw all of that away - despite all the critical acclaim for the visual style of the Prisoner of Azkaban, because he always liked the warm tone of the Columbus' movies, yet he continued with the visual presentation (Hogwarts tracking shots and movie style editing) created by Alfonso in PoA.

The entire movie is tonally and stylistically confusing, and that was the most important thing for me to fix - along with franchise continuity.
Intention:
To create a consistent entry to an established franchise, and improve upon pacing, tone and logic. And to please Harry Potter fans.

As always Andreas has brought us a refreshing new take on the Harry Potter franchise. Believe me when I say the man is at his best with this edit. I love both his take on Philosopher's Stone, pardon I mean Sorcerer's Stone and Chamber of Secrets but with this one he really trimmed a lot of fat while still retaining the excitement of each task and impact of the finale.

I'm a big fan of Harry Potter and have watched the movies and read the books numerous times but the editing was so flawless he managed to sneak the Ron and Harry fight being taken out passed me. Honestly forgot it was even in the theatrical release. The silly comedic moments never really bothered me that much in the original releases but it is nice to have the fat trimmed here and this is almost certainly now my preferred version of the film. Also a lot of nice little score changes that I really, really enjoyed.

One small, small nitpick is that the arriving of the other 2 schools was a little sudden but I don't think you deserve a point off narrative for that though because my opinion might change after a second viewing.

Great edit, great guy.

When I was watching the movie, I didn't feel like anything was missing. I noticed when scenes ended, where there should have been more but that was a good thing! Since those scenes were usually too long or didn't add anything. Glad that he made those cuts.
The new score is great too. Overall great editing. I had a really good time watching.

Following his excellent fanedits of the first two Harry Potter films, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: Revisited and it's sequel, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets: Revisited, Andreas returns once again to provide another excellent addition to his Harry Potter Revisited series, in this delightful fanedit of Goblet of Fire, turning one of the weakest and disappointing films in the series (especially the later, to me at least, as Goblet of Fire is my favorite book in the series) into one of the stronger films in the series, one this is clear and concise, with cuts to many of the films worst moments, such as the original films Dumbledore's silly and infamous yelling of "HARRY DID YA PUT YA NAME IN DA GOBLET OF FIYAH!".

Overall, I would highly recommend giving this a watch.
