Corrected entry: When Harry's name comes out of the Goblet of Fire, it is written on lined paper and not parchment. Wizards only use parchment.
Corrected entry: After the first task in the tournament, Harry's arm is in a sling. But in the second movie, Madam Pomfrey stated that she can "mend bones in a heartbeat."
Corrected entry: In the scene where Harry goes up to the Owlery to retrieve the message sent by Sirius, we see a dark-colored owl fly inside from the opposite window that Harry is standing next to. The owl lands on a square basin but on the far side from Harry, who then turns around noticing that the owl has just flown in holding a note in it's beak. The owl is now on the near side of the basin closest to Harry.
Corrected entry: After the Dragon Chase, Harry has the use of both arms in the scene where he opens his egg and makes up with Ron, yet his arm is in a sling in the following scenes - where Ron opens the box with his dress robes in, and for the dance lesson.
Corrected entry: Just after Harry speaks to Sirius in the fireplace and Ron comes down, Ron leaves and Harry goes back to the fireplace. In the background you see Ron going up the stairs, he goes into the dormitory on the right, but this is the *Girls Dormitory*. When they all arrive in the Common Room in the first movie, Percy says, "Boys' dormitories is upstairs and down to your left. Girls' the same on your right. And also in the first film, we see Hermione go through the door on the right after they see Fluffy for the first time.Jennifer 1
Corrected entry: When Wormtail slices his own flesh in order to revive Voldemort, he cuts off his wrist before the shot switches to Harry. Later on, as Wormtail approaches harry to receive his blood, his arm is missing from the elbow.
Corrected entry: When Harry is underwater in the bathroom, Myrtle touches the open egg, disturbing its bubbles. How could she have touched them if she's a ghost?
Corrected entry: When Harry is in the Owlery, an owl flies in through the window and lands on a post. When Harry takes the letter off it, it shows the window again, but the beams on it are arranged differently.
Corrected entry: The "Expelliarmus" spell changes throughout the films. In some cases, it just pops the recipient's wand out of their hand (the way it is actually used in the books), it launches a sort of ball of blue energy at the victim sending them hurtling backwards and stunning them (as used against Snape in PoA and Krum in GoF and is not necessarily accurate), or in the case of Goblet of fire, a jet of red electricity from Harry when used against Voldemort. It works for the film and books conceptually, but isn't consistent.
Corrected entry: Crouch Jr. (as Moody) executes a huge, complicated plan in order to teleport Harry to the graveyard (tricking the goblet into accepting Harry's name, earning Harry's trust, making sure he wins the tournament, etc.) but this plan is extremely unnecessary. During the movie, there is a scene where Harry and Crouch/Moody were alone together in Crouch/Moody's office. Crouch/Moody could have done anything during that time (e.g. make a glass of juice a portkey and then offer it to Harry) that could have saved him going through his huge plan. Crouch/Moody is obviously not stupid, and he would have thought of that plan.Blibbetyblip
Corrected entry: In Rita's first interview with the four champions, she caresses Fleur's cheek then slaps it. Fleur flinches before Rita's hand leaves her cheek for the slap.
Corrected entry: In this movie, Professor Flitwick was in human form. However in all the other Harry Potter movies and even in the books, he was a troll-like creature. I know this movie had a different director and they sometimes change things a bit, but at least keep the characters looking the same.SAZOO1975
Corrected entry: During the first challange, Harry's hiding behind the rock as the dragon sprays it with it's fire. In the closeup of Harry, just before he flys away on his broom, you can see his breath from the cold. This shouldn't be if he's so near to the dragons flame.
Corrected entry: At the end, when the polyjuice potion is wearing off, we see Barty take off his magic eyeball, but we never see him take off the false leg -- the one he took off before the first task.
Corrected entry: Snape accuses Harry of stealing Gillyweed from his personal stores because he found some Gillyweed missing from his personal stores. Later, Moody reveals that Neville Longbottom had provided Harry with Gillyweed because he had given him the book that led him straight to it. Surely, the book wouldn't have instructions on how to steal Gillyweed from Snape's personal stores, now would it?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Harry is looking for Cedric at the courtyard to talk to him about the dragon, a blond Slytherin girl and boy wearing the rude badges won't let him pass into the garden. Notice that this girl is the same that later on helps Ron settle down at the Gryffindor common room just after he has asked Fleur Delacour to go to the ball with him. She can't be both a Slytherin and a Gryffindor.
Corrected entry: Harry couldn't have just snatched that giant gold egg up in one hand as we are led to believe he does. He would either need both hands or to get his one hand underneath the egg, yet the reflection we see shows his hand in a snatching position.
Corrected entry: After Harry comes out of the pensieve, Dumbledore stares straight ahead while he is talking, as if Harry is clear across the room, rather than looking directly at Harry. In the next shot, however, Dumbledore's body is turned slightly, and he's leaning down, looking directly at Harry, yet no time has passed.Addreamy
Corrected entry: Harry summons his Firebolt when facing the dragon; He specifies "Accio Firebolt". But the broom that comes is a dirty old thing that looks like a small tree branch with some straw attached - Definitely not the sleek, highly polished racing broom that everyone was drooling over in the third film. This is most clear when Harry tries to unhook the broom from the tower window as the dragon stalks him.
Corrected entry: In the Bathroom scene, when Harry is underwater he obviously has the egg open to listen to the clue. But when he comes up, the egg is suddenly closed again.
Corrected entry: After Harry discovers Snape and Karkaroff having a discussion in the potion room, Karkaroff rushes past Harry to leave and quickly walks down the hall. As he is shown walking away, the wall on the left sway back and forth.
Corrected entry: During the scene where Dumbledore is explaining to all the students what happened to Cedric, there is one shot where you can see Viktor, Ginny, Fred and George sitting in one of the front rows. However, later in the scene we see Viktor again, but he is no longer sitting next to Ginny, and is sitting in a row closer to the middle.
Corrected entry: In the graveyard scene after Voldemort is restored, he is talking to Harry about his parents but says that Lilly, Harry's mother, is a Muggle, but she was a 'mudblood': half witch, half Muggle.
Corrected entry: People float in water. Therefore, when Harry undid the rope around Ron's foot in the Black Lake task, Ron should have floated upwards, however slowly, because Harry didn't swim back towards the surface for some time afterwards.
Corrected entry: At the start of the Yule Ball, the orchestra is playing a waltz. In one shot you can see a saxophone in the orchestra, even though there isn't one playing.
Corrected entry: During the graveyard scene, the year of birth on Tom Riddle Sr.'s tombstone changes from 1905 to 1880. (As the most recent book reveals that Voldemort killed his father at age 16, if Riddle Sr. were born in 1905 this would mean he fathered Voldemort at age 12.).
Corrected entry: In the scene after the First Challenge when Ron gets his package, Harry has a very bad cut on his face which seems to be closed with stitches. In the very next scene when the Yule ball is announced the cut and stitches have vanished.
Corrected entry: The dragon that Harry fights for the first round of the Triwizard Tournament is called a Hungarian Horntail, which is the same species of dragon that Hagrid tried to raise in "The Sorceror's Stone." Even allowing for differences in age and gender, there is no resemblance between Hagrid's pet Norbert and the Hungarian Horntail in this movie.
Corrected entry: When Voldemort goes to Cedric's body he says "such a handsome boy" and steps on his face, you can see some flecks of mud on his face. When Harry brings Cedric back the mud has completely disappeared.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Moody is showing the class the three unforgivable curses, Moody asks Ron a question and Ron is sitting in the very first row (in front of Moody). In other shots Ron and Harry are not in the front row.
Corrected entry: In the banquet scene after the other schools have entered, the camera pans down the staff table. At this table Madame Maxime, Igor Karkaroff, and Barty Crouch are all already visible. However in the shot where Dumbledore stands with the goblet, Barty Crouch is shown entering a side door next to the staff table.
Corrected entry: During the second task, when Harry has reached the four prisoners, it is obvious that Fleur's little sister's hair is silvery-white. However, in all other scenes, her hair is obviously blonde-brown. The change in coloration isn't an effect of the water - none of the other characters' hair changes (i.e. underwater, Hermione's hair is still brown).
Corrected entry: In the scene where Harry is speaking to Sirius Black in the fireplace - Harry spins around, looks towards the stairs and hears Ron coming - look quickly during this shot to the top of the picture (in the dark) you will see a person walking right to left. Can't be anyone who's meant to be there - Harry's definitely alone and there's no implication this is meant to be someone listening in.Joseph Brinson
Corrected entry: When Harry is taken into Moody's office and he takes his leg off you can see his "special eye" change from the normal left hand side of his head to the right and back again.
Corrected entry: When the Durmstrang ship sinks into the water at the end, there is no disturbance in the water once it's below the surface. When it arrived there were plenty of waves and ripples, so it can't be an enchantment to prevent it disturbing the surface.
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie, where the muggle caretaker is in his house before he is killed by Voldemort, he lights a fire and puts a pot of tea on to boil. In the next shot you can see that he still has the pot in his hand, even though he had already put it down.
Corrected entry: On the tombstone, you first see the name as Tom Riddle. Later when Harry is tied to it, it is Thomas Riddle.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Harry is talking to Sirius Black in the fire, he throws a Daily Prophet into the fire and it bounces back out again. There are only cinders and burning wood in the fire during that scene, but after Sirius has gone, the shot goes to the same newspaper that has just bounced out of the fire, which is now in the fireplace, happily burning.
Corrected entry: Moody says in class that it's hard to separate the people who were truly under the Imperius curse from the liars. But in the maze when Krum is under the curse his eyes are hazed over and he has no pupils. Wouldn't it be fairly easy to tell who's under the curse if their eyes were like that?
Corrected entry: Wormtail killed Cedric, not Voldemort, so why does Cedric come out of Voldemort's wand?
Corrected entry: If the plan to restrict the age of entry for the tri-wizard tournament was for safety reasons, why does nobody at Hogwarts have the least problem with tying Ron, Hermione, and Fleur's sister (all underage) to the bottom of the lake as part of one of the trials? This seems especially significant as the implication of Harry's rescuing of the sister is that without him she would never have escaped at all.
Corrected entry: Sirius Black sends a letter to Harry and tells him that he sent a different owl because the Ministry has been checking the owls' letters. Later, Harry sends him a letter addressed "Sirius Black". Wouldn't the Ministry catch this and be alerted that Harry is writing to an escaped criminal?In the books, Harry addresses his letters to Sirius as "Snuffles" to make sure no one finds out he's writing to him, but this is not mentioned in the movie.
