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

After seeing DH 2 for the 2nd time and thinking about it, there's a problem with Snape's memory sequence. When Lily is sorted and sits at the table, James is already there. If they were sorted in alphabetical order, which we would assume, she would have been seated first. I understand why it's that way in the film, but it did stick out eventually.

After watching the DH2 movie for a 3rd time, i realised when Snape was dueling with Magonagal that he made one of her attacks hit the carrows. and when snape fled she called him a coward :P

They don't sort alphabetically in the movies; at least, they didn't in the first movie. The Big Three are sorted in the order Granger, Weasley, Potter. And I think Malfoy was between Hermione and Ron, but I wouldn't swear to that.

Yeah, the order in the first film was: Granger, Malfoy, Bones, Weasley, Potter No order to it at all!

They made Harry last, for dramatic reasons. They made Hermione come before Ron, so he could make his comment about her being a little mental about the sorting (well, she was). The rest of it was, I think, just an off-hand decision.

James and Sirius were also already in the full Gryffindor uniform, not the first year not-sorted-yet outfit. *Facepalm* I guess the movie made them a year older, or something?

I doubt it was a conscious decision to make them a year older; I think it's a big part of their story that they're all in the same year together. If I had to give an explanation, it's probably more likely that James and Sirius were so confident that they'd be in Gryffindor, they prepared for it in advance. If I remember correctly, in the book, James announces that he's aiming for "Gryffindor, where dwell the brave at heart!". I'd assume that he just fancied himself a Gryffindor before the official sorting.

Noticed a Ron/Hermione moment on the Viaduct at the end of DH Part 2

Right before the end of the Viaduct scene at the end of the movie, Hermione grabs Harry’s hand, without hesitation, but she delays grabbing Ron’s hand, kind of scared to do it. She’s just getting used to going into that relationship with Ron. Emma does perfectly there with that feeling!

After they get off the dragon and come out of the water, Hermione takes out a bottle and drops some liquid on all their hands...what is that for???

Assuming it's Essence of Dittany, like in the book.

Speaking of nods to previous films (Cornish Pixies, Paper bird...etc) did you guys also catch, on the train in the epilogue, the little firework balls a la Fred and George (OotP)?

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

Yeah you could assume that...but what did they need to wash their hands with essence of dittany for? Its always been used in obvious situations like the sectum sempra on Draco and the Ron splinching...I did not see anything wrong with them when they came out of *** water.

Unless we were supposed to assume that the cups in Bellatrix's vault really did burn them and only their hands were exposed to it? It just was confusing...

Someone suggested that it was because they had been clutching the back of a dragon for hours, which doesn't seem like it would be a picnic.

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

In the book it's because the treasure in the vault has a curse on it that burns the hands of whoever holds it. They never mention this in the movie as far as I can remember, but as we all know, that doesn't mean it doesn't exist!

This is really random, but I was watching GoF today and after Moody's Unforgivable Curse lesson, and after he invites Neville to tea to give him "Magical Water Plants of the Highland Locks", is the scene where Cedric, Krum, and the twins put their names into the Goblet. At the beginning of the scene we see Neville standing around reading the book that Moody just gave him.

Well, they weren't sorted in alphabetical order in movie 1.

At the Opening Feast in SS: Snape claps the top of his left hand with the palm of his right hand. Normal clapping is palms together, but he's clapping with the right palm over the top of the left hand. It was just odd.

When I first saw the movie, the first thing that jumped to my mind was magical hand sanitizer . It never occurred to me that it might be essence of dittany... although I think that's probably right, since hanging on dragon spikes for a long time has got to put some wear and tear on one's hands.

I didn't notice that Lavender was in the RoR in DH2 until seeing it for the second time. She hasn't any lines, but it was nice anyway. It shows that she's got more substance to her than what we previously saw of her in HBP; it also makes her death that much more depressing.

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

We were watching OotP just last night and we never noticed before that during the Occlumency lessons, when Sirius and Harry were hugging, Snape was in the background saying, "I may vomit". We're probably the only ones who never heard that before.

Of course we think of the locket, but I think the line is supposed to also indicate a realization about Harry for the viewer to pick up on.
I must pay more attention to that when I watch it again. Thanks for pointing that out.

Noticed something in Half-Blood Prince. The vial in the perfume ad Dumbledore is looking at, at the start of the movie, is the same kind of vial used for memories in the movie.
