Re: What do you have to explain to your friends and family who only see the movies?

After the first two movies, to give the 3rd film a chance.

Nothing for the 3rd movie, except whether it was explained in the book how Harry survived the Dementor attack if his survival depended on him already surviving. (Most of them already knew different time travel theory; they were just wondering if it was made explicit.)

For the 4th movie, the question was what analogue of an "egg" was cut from the second task on the assumption that the 2nd task set up the 3rd in the same way that the 1st set up the 2nd; then the question was why it was retained!

However, after the 3rd movie, I did not have to explain to people that good films were coming: PoA hooked them. Most of them have never seen Chamber, however, and have no interest in doing so. (I already told them that everything important about Chamber will be summarized in one line in a future movie.)

(It doubles for The Hobbit, too!)
If in the first act you have hung a pistol on the wall, then in the following one it should be fired. Otherwise don't put it there. - A. P. Chekhov, Gurlyand's Reminiscences, and who knew why the Dog was long before the Shack!
