Re: Things you didn't spot until the umpteenth time in the HP films v.2

In PoA, when Sirius puts his left hand on Harry's chest (in the 'those we love never leave us' bit), is he wearing a wedding ring?

No, I think they're tattoos on his fingers and hands from Azkaban. Here's a screencap for reference. I never realised he had them on his fingers, in a circle, like rings.

(Just click on the link and then the screencaps of Sirius's hand on Harry's chest to see a close-up. )

When watching Order of the Phoenix, during every Harry/Cho moment, watch the background and you will most likely spot an unhappy Ginny.

She gives a nasty look on the bridge after the Hogsemede scene, too.

At the end of OOTP, when everyone has just got off the coaches and are walking to the station, behind HRH you see one of the Patil twins bump into an invisible thestral.

I didn't notice that in OOTP, when Trelawney was being sacked, you can see the Patil twins crying in the background. Also, George brushing his teeth in the Harry/Ginny kiss scene in DH1.

I wouldn't say nasty...she does look concerned, though.

Yeah. Ginny's reaction to Harry/Cho is awesome in OotP. One of many things i like about that film.

Re: Things you didn't spot until the umpteenth time in the HP films v.2

I'm compiling a list of observations of the HP films and starting with OOTP. Here's what I have so far. If you have any to add, feel free to. Let's see how long we can get this list! Focus on OOTP for now, if you don't mind.

MoD's Geeky observation List OOTP:

1. As we fade into the WB logo, we can hear Nagini's parceltongue dialog lifted directly from the opening of GOF when she's telling her master, Voldemort, that someone (the old muggle caretaker) is at the door.

2. Continuity from COS: The wide shot of Little Whinging is nearly identical to the wide shot of LIttle Whining in COS except for the addition of the large field on the outskirts which could have simply been out of focus in the COS shot.

3. We have our first instance of Film-Harry wandering off quite far from home. In the book, he only walked within a few blocks of Privet Drive. In the HBP film, he will wander off even further, during his summer break, to the tube station.

4. Harry walks past a group of kids on bicycles. This could be a reference to the book where Dudley and his gang had bikes.

5. Harry is reading a newspaper while sitting on the swing. It's hard to notice but as he jumps up to threaten Dudley, you can see it blowing away.

6. Dudley and his gang are decked out in hip-hop garb. Dudley has a G-unit patch on his pants. The film version depicts Dudley as a wigger. Something not in the book.

7. Notice how the Dementers zero in on Harry after Dudley has taunted him making him obviously feel depressed. Dementers feed off of depression and despair.

8. Dudley is talking about how this particular ten-year he beat up deserved it. This rationalization of harsh measures is something that will be echoed by Umbridge many times later in the film and also something Harry will grapple with himself as he casts Crucio on Bellatrix..

9. Harry has a negative relationship with his cousion just like Sirius has a bad relationship with his cousion, Bellatrix. Another form of bond and connection between the two.

10. The underpass Harry and Dudley take shelter in is heavily graffitied lending a gritty sense of realism and urbanism. It was very likely Dudley and his gang were the artists.

11. Apparently Dementers can either make themselves insivible, move through walls and solid objects or apparate since we do not see the Dementer creep up on Harry, he simply appears suddenly behind him.

12. Continuity with POA: The lights flicker and the air becomes much colder when dementers appear. Dementers can also touch and manipulate the physcial world as was seen in POA and is mantained here when the Dementer picks Harry up and strangles him. They look slightly different than in POA but this can simplely be because they aren't wearing cloaks. Their mouths are pretty much the same.

13. Harry uses his wand like a knife as he slashes the Dementer who is holding him up against the wall. This is a bit of a reference to the book where Uncle Vernon has his hand around Harry's neck and Harry's body enamates a magical shock that causes Vernon to release him. Similar to what Harry does here, except he uses his wand. Neither hex required the use of a incantation.

14. Harry hesistates a fraction of a second before saving Dudley.

15. Continuity with POA: This is the second time we see Harry's fully formed patronus: the stag. The first time was at the end of POA when he saves himself and Sirius across the lake.

16. Mrs. Figg is cleverly wearing a raincoat. She had to have carried it on her just in case, in the small trunk/case she is wheeling around since the storm came so suddenly and she would not have had time to race back home to get a rain coat if she were tailing Harry.

17. Every single lawn on Privet Drive has their sprinklers on. This is perhaps a jokey reference to the book where sprinkler use was banned because of the drought but everyone on Privet drive put them on anyway, at night-time.

18. The only reference to the blood-bind love charm Dumbledore put on 4 Privet Drive in the films is when Mrs. Figgs puts such emphasis on her line, "Whatever happens: DON'T LEAVE THE HOUSE."

19. Along with all the pictures of young Dudley and his family from PS/SS, there is a new picture of Dudley posing with his boxing gloves and helment on. It's right in focus in the first shot inside the house. This is a reference to the book where Dudley has become a champion boxer at his school.

20. Petunia is watching the weather. Perhaps this is Ted or Jimmy Macguffin, the news reporters on TV in the begining of the PS book. We can hear Petunia click off the TV as Dudley walks in.

21. There is a small practice punching bag in the living area. We can see it next to Harry as he's sitting on the stool at the island in the kitchen.

22. The owl who delivers Harry's letter from the Ministry is probably so harrased and exzausted from delivering letters all day or collapses because the letter is an howler and was causing the owl a great deal of pain.

23. When we see the letter on the couch, we can see Petunia's electric fan next to it and the TV remote control.

24. If you notice Petunia's face, she seems sad and dissapointed when the letter announces Harry has been expelled from Hogwarts. Perhaps she is rembering her own rejection letter? The witch who sent the letter is Mafalda Hopkirk, the Ministry employee Hermione will impersonate in DH1.

25. Vernon blurts out, "Justice!" If Vernon were a wizard, he would support the Fudge Administration and the Ministry of Magic at this time. This connects the ignorance and arrogance of the Dursleys with the Ministry of Magic's own brand of ignorance and arrogance.

26. When he is alone in his room and smashes his fists against the wall, Harry knocks over a picture of his parents. When we see the picture again later when Harry puts it back, we can see the frame has been cracked. Harry cannot use repairo to fix it since he'd be in danger of using more magic outside school.

37. On Harry's bedside desk, we can see an empty food dish with a few crumbs in it and a drink container. Harry eats his meals in his room.

38. On Harry's wall are selections from the wizarding comic, "Martin Miggs, the Mad Muggle" as well as drawings of owls and Quidditch plans and other Quidditch stuff. On his wardobe are programmes from the 422nd Quidditch World Cup Final he attended the year before with the Weasleys.

39. If we listen in the background, we can hear Tonks drop a cup and crack it downstairs as Harry wakes up from his dream.

40. As Harry's door magically shoots open we can hear Tonks saying, "Very clean these muggles."

41. Connection to COS: Harry asks Moody what he is doing there and Moody replies "Rescuing YOU of-course." This is exactly what Harry and Ron say in COS when they rescue him in the flying car.

42. Memebers of the Advance guard present in the film: Alastor Moody, Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Emeline Vance and Elphias Dodge.

43. As the Advance guard and Harry line up on the lawn, we can see Elphias Dodge take off his hat. He is wearing the same clothes or similar clothes his character is wearing in DH1, even though it's a different actor.

44. Moody's broomstick is like an Easy Rider motorcycle. We can even hear it has an engine.

45. Mad Eye's line, "Don't break rank if one of us is killed!" is foreshadowing his death in DH1 during a similar escort of Harry. If you notice, Tonks is rolling her eyes as Moody says this.

Re: Things you didn't spot until the umpteenth time in the HP films v.2

I had DH1 playing on my iphone recently, and there are a few scenes where I picked up on background dialogue that I hadn't noticed when I saw it in the theater or on DVD. In particular, when they show Harry inside the burrow--I'm not sure if it's right before he picks up the newspaper before Ginny comes in or if it is after the MoM arrives...but you can hear some yelling outside, I think it's Fred, George and Arthur. I tried to pick up what the conversation actually was but all I could make out was something like "Ready when you are!" it sounded kind of amusing.

Most of those lines in the background are sound recordings lifted from the earlier films. "Ready when you are!" is from OOTP when the twins are leaving Hogwarts. There's also a ton of lines from GOF, Quiddtch World Cup.

Re: Things you didn't spot until the umpteenth time in the HP films v.2

In SS, when Harry and Hagrid are approaching to the leaky cauldron, there is a sign that is black but as they approach, a cauldron appears

In POA,

when Snape is giving DADA lecture, Snape emphasize how to notice someone is a werewolf lol

at the beginning you can hear a dog barking... Which is Sirius...

You can also hear a wolf howl's during many parts of the movie... One time is when you see the dementors then when they are closing the hogwarts door, you can also see the full moon... Lupin

Yeah but MOST of them are from the other films.

I believe the only new line is that one. "It's your brother's wedding! Buck up!"

The others are: "Ready when you are!" from OOTP, "Keep up!" from GOF, "Now there's something you don't see everyday!" from GOF. There might be more but I don't remember.

Re: Things you didn't spot until the umpteenth time in the HP films v.2

Last night when I watched DH1, I noticed that when Harry (Disguised as Runcorn) is looking at the reports of various people in Umbridge's office (Moody, Sirius, etc), well if you look at Dumbledore's, instead of saying 'Son of Percivel and Kendra', it says 'Son of Percivel and Dumbledore'? I'm not sure if this is a mistake or what, just noticed it. Odd.

My and my friend made a game out of it when we were marathoning before the HBP midnight premiere.


MasterofDeath:
12-I think the dementors looked different because they had gotten wet in the rain so their cloaks were sticking to them
22-I believe the owl collapses cause he crashed into the ceiling.

Other then that great list.

Technically the station we see in HBP is a train station, not a tube station. Surbiton is a stop on the Waterloo line. Don't feel bad for mistaking it as a Tube Station....I thought it was one too in the movie until I saw the Surbiton sign and then recognized it as my home station from when I spent a summer studying at Kingston.

Carrying an umbrella or small raincoat with you is pretty normal in Britain so it wouldn't surprise me that she had it with her.

Re: Things you didn't spot until the umpteenth time in the HP films v.2

This might have been mentioned before but yesterday I was watching Goblet of Fire and during the Voldemort vs. Harry battle, I noticed that one of the Death Eaters started randomly clapping like a small excited child.
