  1. 5 and 4 pissed me off so much, it was also scenes like 5 that made people think there was more to Harry and Hermione

  2. I don't agree with the evaluation of Voldemorts death. I think the movie version was much more appropriate than the book version.

  3. If you haven't red the books, explain who are peeves, Charlie Weasley, Ludo Bagman, Barny Weasley, Dennis Creevey, Marietta Edgecombe, Winky, professor Binns, Teddy Lupin and Hepzibah Smith. And there is MANY more things, like the midnight duel, the deathday party, squibs and FREAKING QUIDDITCH ON HARRYS 5TH YEAR, veelas, s.p.e.w, prefects Ron and Hermione, "Remember my last", Weasley is our king, 2 divination teachers, Saint Mungo's hospital, Merope Gaunt, and apparitions tests, and the list continues. See what you have missed by only watching the movies?

  4. i think the way he died in the movies are more fitting for his character. hes not really human. he looks like a snake because of his 7 horcruxes. he is a supernatural being in a way

  5. I PREFERRED the movie's final fate of the Elder Wand. Putting it in Dumbledore's tomb is stupid, because as long as the wand exists, greedy people will seek it, whether or not they can be the master of it. People would fuck up Dumbledore's tomb to get at it.

  6. this may be my personal opinion but if hp was or is done in the format of a full length TV series then it would definitely do the books a lot more justice than the movies did. as long as the acting was good and the plot and characters were relatable, it would make for a show a lot more decent than the movie adaptations. imo it would be a good move to do it through a streaming service like Netflix which made a better iteration of lemony Snicket's unfortunate events. Another good move would probably be to make it in an anime format where the character designs would be a lot more accurate and the directors would have an excuse to extend it for missing details which were really important for character development. Whilst I wonder if jk Rowling has ever actually thought of an anime adaptation, Id be curious to see the hidden details which were never explained in the films, as well as acting from harry that seems a lot less forced (and it's take on the character designs)

  7. #2 THO!!! One of my all time favorite scenes from the books was when Neville's mom gives him a candy wrapper and Neville kept it even though his grandmother wanted him to throw it away

  8. Harry destroying the elder wand was perhaps one of the best differences in the books to the screen when I was reading the book I was like ''ooh you are not gonna destroy the wand were hundreds of people would murder over so you could end it all it's not like you talked about it in a area full with wizards and witches''
    Movie version does it way better.
