Harry Potter and the Incomplete Movie

I watched the big screen version of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire last night. It is the best Potter film so far, but it is too bad that so many other bits in the book did not make the cut. I understand the time limit they have, but if I watch it as a person who has not read the book I would not have understood a whole lot.

It just doesn't feel complete without revealing Rita Skeeter's secret, the romance with Chang, and the underlying tension between the three friends. But the final scenes with Voldemort are well done, and the scene after that with Cedric is particularly heart-wrenching.
