Re: Movie mistakes

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before, but in the HBP film, the spelling of the spell "Sectumsempra" in the Half-Blood Prince's potions book has an extra "p" in the middle, but it is not spelt like that in the book. I can't think why they would add a "p".

Spoiler: show


I have just checked and the second time we see the name of the spell written in the potions book, it is spelt as it is in the books, minus the extra "p".

Spoiler: show

Hmm, interesting how it is in two different places and with very different handwriting as well.

Re: Movie mistakes

The Sectumsempra scribbles are both in different places in the book so perhaps this was Snape's process of correcting and perfecting the spell?

Good looking though! I have seen HBP more times than one could imagine and I can swear to you now I would never ever have spotted that!

Guess it's been awhile since I read the book. Makes sense in that respect, a little detail from the book.

That's the only answer I could come up with too. Although,I think it would have made more sense and been clearer if they had it crossed out as Harry mentions "crossing outs and revisions" of the Prince's spells.

As Harry mentions no 'crossing outs and revisions' for Sectumsempra, only the notation 'for enemies', IMO the two handwritings, etc., are clearly movie mistakes.

Re: Movie mistakes

I think the obvious one is that if you look closely in alot of the scenes in the movies Dan's eyes are blue not green.

Yeah, I rememeber in the book she says something like,"Make the "r" nice and long." Also, This might just be the fact that I've read the series over 15 times, but I always get annoyed when the lines aren't like they're supposed to be.
In HBP, did anyone else get mad after Dumbledore dies that they all raise their wands and stop to acknowledge his death? I mean come on! There was a serious battle going on, and half the people didn't know he was gone until the next few hours or even days!
There are SO many mistakes that if I tried to count them all, my post would be 5 pages long...

Re: Movie mistakes

^ yes but the battle didnt really happen in the movies. i thought the wand raising was quite nice. they took out the funeral and such so that kind of replaced it. its a small change that doesnt really affect much in my opinion.

Re: Movie mistakes

What about the part when Ginny was in the Room of Requirement with Harry and she asked Harry to close his eyes and she hid the book.

If Harry didn't hide the Potion book himself, how is he going to find the diadem of Ravenclaw in DH? That's suppose to be the hint.

Re: Movie mistakes

The whole Harry/Ginny thing in the Room of Requirement was silly. It was so forced and so wrong, as far as the story. Did anyone involved with writing the script, directing, or editing the movie actually read the book????

The burning of the Burrow, leaving out the whole huge Battle of the Astronomy Tower, running through the swamp at the Burrow, no funeral for Dumbledore, no phoenix song....I could go on and on, and on.....

The first two movies at least made an attempt to follow the books, except cutting Peeves out completely. They also left out the logic puzzle that Snape used to guard the SS. Peeves I missed. The puzzle would have just been confusing, so I can see why it was dropped. PoA, they cut out all of parts where Crookshanks helps Sirius, and how he's the one who actually steals the password for Sirius. In GoF they put the Weasleys up in the nosebleed section instead of the Ministry's Box, and they completely left Winky out. Dobby completely disappears after CoS. No mention of S.P.E.W. at all.

I don't guess these are really "mistakes" as they were intentional, but, I don't think, as popular as the HP series is, they should just re-write the stories like that.

We actually have a movie pet peeves thread for discussing things you didn't like about the movies.

That's not really a mistake; Dan has blue eyes so in the movies Harry has blue eyes! It's not necessary for Harry's eyes to be green, just that they're the same as Lily's.

Re: Movie mistakes

Bellatrix's wand is different in the Order of the phoenix and the HBP. in the OOTP when she raises her wand at Neville in the Department of Mystery its a completely straight wand...in the HBP when she accompanies Snape and Narcissa in the Unbreakable and we see her wand its completely bent...

No: I thought it was very well done. Better than the long-winded book version (the funeral), in fact.

I would hardly call the skirmish in HBP a "battle". Anyway, it was long over by the time the castle inhabitants found out about and responded to DD's death.

I thought it was well scripted, but rather too low key, due to the tepid acting of the youngsters.

Re: Movie mistakes

As I recall, they didn't actually show the Ravenclaw Diadem in the movie HBP, so the audience wouldn't know it is there unless they read the book. We'll see in DH how Harry supposedly finds out where the diadem he has been looking for all along turns out to be.

This isn't a mistake as we have no idea how this will be handled in DH2, since afterall it won't be released for another year.

My that time, in the film, all the Death Eaters had left Hogwarts. And this isn't a mistake either.

Re: Movie mistakes

In OotP, during one of the DA sessions when Nigel/Colin practises one of the spells on Harry and he gets lifted into the air, if you watch the left of the screen you can see something that looks like the wires to pull Harry up.
