Re: Movie mistakes

I say for the mirror, at the beginning of HBP, DD can give it to Harry and say, Sirius told me to give this to you. And for the Lily thing, they can drop some hints in HBP too that will make the connection.

Re: Movie mistakes

This is actually more a books-to-the-movies mistake, not so much a movie mistake.

A movie mistake is, for example, if Sirius Black appears with long black hair in the first scene, then with shorter hair in the second, then with long hair again in the third. This thread is for spotting and discussing mistakes made in the HP movies like that only, thanks!

Maybe this is not the right thread for this question... but is it prohibited to have visitors from other houses in the Common Room?. I know Luna took Harry to Ravenclaw tower, so we know there isn't a spell preventing people from other houses to enter... but is it prohibited?

In the movies they made both Patils Gryffindors, to simplify things.

Re: Movie mistakes

I recognised the Snitch mistake too. Yet maybe because Harry practically swallowed it it was mor in tune to him.
I also think they made Barty Crouch Jr. too eccentric.

This is still valid. Please make sure to at least read and understand the first post of a thread to see what it is about.

If you want to discuss what you like and dislike on the movies, you might want to check out one of our many movie threads like


Do the movies ruin the books?
Is there anything in the movies that you like more than in the books?
Do the movies ruin the books?
What did you miss most that they cut from the movie?

Thanks.

Re: Movie mistakes

A movie mistake I saw, is that when Neville is standing by the notice board in the Room of Requirement looking at the picture with his parents, you can see the list of the people who signed up for Dumbledore's Army. On that list, among the other names, you can see the signature of Seamus Finnegan who only joined for the very last session and never signed the list.

Look at that:

Right in the middle of everyone elses...

Maybe he has a twin... With the same name...

Re: Movie mistakes

The entrance to the Hall of Prophecy is one.

When they went for the hearing Harry and Mr. Weasley got of the elevator...turned...then saw Lucious and Fudge standing in front of the door.

At the end the door was directly in front of the elevator.

Just something I spotted

I saw that and thought that the (crazy ) elevator might come in different places...

Re: Movie mistakes

They obviously made a conscientious decision to do this, but I just noticed it and it could be considered a continuity error.

In OoTP, when Neville notices the prophesy with Harry's name on it, he must look up to the shelf to see it. Neville is obviously quite a bit taller than Harry, but when Harry takes the prophesy down from the shelf, the prophesy is at eye-level (or just below).

Also, for continuity in that scene, Harry moments earlier is yards away from the rest of the group searching for the spot where Sirius is supposed to be. Then right after Neville says that there's a prophecy with Harry's name on it, he's right there amongst the group looking at it.

Re: Movie mistakes

Probably no one thinks know its a mistake, but in the POA the photo of the Weasleys in Egypt showed the Weasley family with white cloth on their heads, I think the movie makers thought its what all Arabs wear but these white things they wore are used in the Arabian Gulf countries not Egypt. It's not an important one, but...

Re: Movie mistakes

In OotP, before Neville finally succeeds in casting the Expelliarmus spell, there is a short scene in the montage depicting the DA's activities, which shows the group standing in a circle around the training manikin. And who casts a successful disarming spell on the dummy? Neville!

That's one of my favorites, especially because it sounds like they dubbed it later, after Dan Radcliffe's voice had changed.

Re: Movie mistakes

I hope this classifies as a movie mistake

I just re-watched PS and when Harry and the other first years first enter the grand staircase, Percy says something like "Gryffindor's this way". Right after that another prefect says something like "Ravenclaw's follow me." The Ravenclaws then proceed to go down towards the dungeons. Isn't the Ravenclaw common room supposed to be up in a tower?

Also in PS, after the students get sorted and sit down at the table, the scene changes to the beginning of the feast. The student are now in a completely different order and are at the other end of the table.

That qualifies as book-to-movie adaption mistake. Like Harry's eyes being blue in the movies. Well it's not really a mistake just another interpretation of locations and look of things.

yeah that's a mistake. Good catch.
