Well, all that 'show me your mark and I'll show your mine, seemed very innecessary to me. First, we the book readers don't find any sense in it, and even if we try to put an explanation, we will never figure it out, as it is not explained in the movie.
And for the non-reading audience, I think it made less sense. Probably it was just to show Bartys mark and Harrys wound on screen. Poorly done in my opinion.

Re: Questions about the Harry Potter Movies

I wonder why Newell had Albus go on about Priori Incantatem (reverse spell effect) in that last scene with Harry? What is anyone gonna get out of that? No-one will remember it for the next film (if it is ever to be explained that is).

I did not really understand the meaning of that scene. Albus tells Harry that nothing will bring the dead back. Is this a foreshadowing to the Horcrux topic?

Because Dumbledore wanted to see whether Harrys arm was indeed cut.
He wanted to know this so that he was sure whether Voldemort had indeed returned using Harry's blood, meaning that he could touch him now.

Basically, he was putting 2 and 2 together, seeing Harry's arm bleeding he figured it out, that his blood was used.

I don't think that the scriptwriters and moviemakers are foreshadowing anything. I am not even sure if they have read HBP before finishing GoF.
I guess it is just to prevent audience from thinking that Harrys parents are going to come back, or just to explain who these strange ghosts were.

Re: Questions about the Harry Potter Movies

Can anyone please tell me what Voldemort says when Harry runs behind the tombstone in the graveyard. I want it for a sig. Its something like "Dont you hide from me. I want to see the light sleam your eyes when you die."

Re: Questions about the Harry Potter Movies

Voldemort: Don't you turn your back on me, Harry Potter! I want to see your face when I kill you! I want to see the light leave your eyes!
Harry: [facing Voldemort] Have it your way!
Voldemort, Harry: [both shouting together] Avada Kedavara!/Expelliarmus!

Which made me think - what if Harry had gotten his 'Expelliarmus' said first? There he is, with the Dark Lord thrown back on his backside, holding two wands, surrounded by Death Eaters, and not knowing any spells tougher than a stunner. "Oh ****, now what!?"

Hopefully he would have had time to get back to the cup in that instance! But I wonder if he would have left Cedric behind, since he wouldn't have the whole "Take my body back" line.

Good Job he didn't then.

Here is a question.

If the lake outside Hogwarts is indeed a Lake.

Firstly in POA how come we see it almost completey dried up like a River, when Hegwid flys over it?

and Second, How does the Durmstrang ship actually get into the lake, if its Landlocked?

Re: Questions about the Harry Potter Movies

I think when they both arrive, Dumbledore comments on how the wizarding schools are always trying to outdo one another... in the book, of course!

From memory, it bursts through the lake from below. Presumably it arrived in a similar fashion to the way it did in the book -- in a giant whirlpool-type-thing.

BurrowGhoul does have an excellent point about magic, though.

Damn good food. Diane, if you ever get up this way that cherry pie is worth a stop.

Re: Questions about the Harry Potter Movies

That is actually a great question, for both movie and book! How does it get there? I wondered that myself, and as BurrowGhoul states clearly, it is obviosly "magic (silly)" ! Good explanation, seriously!

Has anyone noticed that everyone's hair is long??!? Except for a few of the adults and some stragglers.

I wish for the departure they had shown someone pulling a chain and the ship getting flushed

Or did you mean Professor Flitwick? Very short, black hair, 'tache---conducted the orchestra at the ball? That's Warwick Davis---out of costume of the first two movies---Cuaron changed that in POA, and Newell kept the change in GoF. Warwick was happy not to wear all the prosthetics/make-up/hair that he'd had to wear for the first two movies.
Ya i meant er..Proffeser Flitwick...i didnt notice him in the 3rd movie but why did they change him? He's not at all like Flitwick was in 1 and 2, i mean why would flitwick suddenly decide to shave his whole beard off, cut his hair and dye it black? i am so confused as to why they would make such a dramatic change, how is anyone supposed to make the connection? I mean, i understand if Warwick didnt want all the makeup and costume and everything but thats just a part of being in the movie. IMO, Warwick's comfort could have been sacrificed for flow in the movies.

Alfonso Cuaron made the change, not Warwick Davis. Cuaron never gave the reason for that specific change.

Several scenes in Prisoner of Azkaban where Professor Flitwick {minus the costume of the first two movies} is prominent is the choir with frogs singing 'Double, Double, Toil and Trouble'---he conducted them, just as he conducted the Yule Ball; and reporting to Dumbledore in the Great Hall, after the Fat Lady's portrait had been attacked and the castle had been searched for Sirius Black.

Warwick Davis also played the Goblin Bank Teller at Gringott's, the one Hagrid gave Harry's key to.

Verne Troyer {Mini-Me} played Griphook, who escorted Harry and Hagrid to both vaults [Warwick Davis did the voice-over work for the speaking part].

I believe it's an entirely different character. Besides, the original Professor Flitwick was far too gobliny. Even JKR was surprised by his appearance!
