Things I didn’t like in the Harry Potter movies

Not too long ago I wrote a post abut things I didn’t like in the Harry Potter storyline, read it here:

I said there already that I don’t want to change anything about it and I’m really happy the way it was written, it’s J.K. Rowling’s story and plot and that’s the way it’s supposed to be.

The movies are a bit of a different thing though and I think a lot of you will agree with me. We all read the books first and then watched the movies. To not make the movies to long things were changed and scratched and yes, I’m not happy about certain things in the movies. Here the are:

-       Harry’s and Lily’s eyes: Harry has green eyes like his mother. This is a very important fact in the book! In the movies neither Harry nor his mother have green eyes. NO-GO!
-       Dobby/Winky: There were no Dobby and Winky in 4th movie, which is a shame. The scenes with them in the kitchen are adorable and on top oft hat: Dobby helps Harry with the second task.
-       Dragons in the first task: In the movie the hint to go out with Hagrid before the first task comes from Ron, but actually it was Hagrid asking Harry to come see him.
-       Ginny’s and Harry’s first kiss: It happened after the deciding Quidditch game!!! Not in the room of requirements. Ginny wasn’t even helping him hide the book oft he half blood prince.
-       Peeves, Ludo Bagman: Nowhere to be seen in the movies.
-       Time travel: In the book it’s clear that interactions with their own selves are a no-go, but why is Hermione throwing rocks at themselves?!
-       Potions challenge in the philosopher’s stone: Hermione gains 50 points for Gryffindor through that and it’s vital in the storyline, not happening in the movie though.
-       Ron and Hermione: So they kiss after they destroy a Horcrux in the chamber of secrets?! In the book their relationship developed nicely.
-       The Weasley house attack: This only happens in the 6th movies, wheer Bellatrix and Greyback attack the Weasley house, IT’S NOT IN THE BOOK!!!!
-    Harry asking Cho to the yule ball: In the movie they are in the owlery! It did NOT happen this way!

There are some more things, but these things disturbed me most! How about you, was there something you didn’t like about the movies?


  1. Loved to know something new about Harry Potter. I want to read all these books so much too!

  2. These things annoyed me too!
