In the first part of the Deathly Hallows:

They don't dance.
The Haircut.
Harry's anger issues.

Actually, that ticked me off; the fact that Harry and Hermione were portrayed as maybe having deeper feelings -.-


I think it was cute! I knew they weren't together so I wasn't mad.

True, however, neither Harry nor Hermione were portrayed as touchy feely in the books, which makes their actions in the film more annoying.
Yeah, I get what you mean. I was going 'Y U No' Guy on that scene -.-

The characters aren't going to be exactly the same. But I think they were in that one scene because it was needed. Not only for a cinematic "mood lifter", but also for movie!Harry and movie!Hermione. They've been out for months without family, hope, and Ron was nowhere to be found. It was pretty much hopeless, but that one scene helped pick both of them up just a little, and even shaped the friendship between movie!Harry and movie!Hermione, because I always had a feeling in the movies, Ron was always the bridge to keep the two of them together.

Anyone who's read the books knows that the movies were hack and slash versions. As far as I'm concerned, given the amount of information vital to the story as a whole, they should've started doing Part 1 & 2 versions of the movie starting at The Prisoner of Azkaban. And this last installment should've been three parts. It's not as if they were small budget films. It's not like the actors weren't willing to do all they could for these moves. And it's not as though the fans would have objected to so much more of their beloved books being portrayed true to the original story. In fact, as popular as these movies have been, and as much money as they've each pulled in, I'd be willing to bet they likely would've made double if they had simply started dividing the movies earlier in order to include more of the original storyline, characters, and general information.

I'm looking forward to Deathly Hallows Part 2 on DVD, though, to see what scenes were filmed and deleted from the final cut.


That's so true. And they even promised to stick to the book! They. Promised!! crying


Hollywood promises are pie crust promises: easily made, easily broken. Like politicians, they never stick to their word. *sigh*

One scene that was exempted from Part 2 of the Deathly Hallows was, from the book, Snape's memory of the time Padfoot, Moody, Wormtail and Prongs had charmed him upside down to show off his underwear. I know they'd covered that scene in an earlier movie, but it should have been extended in the last to reveal why it was that Lily and Snape parted ways. He had, in the book, called her a mudblood when she'd come to his rescue against his four Gryfindor bullies. I think they should've left that scene in as it would've made his feelings and his regrets for her that much more powerful.
I thought the dancing scene in Part 1 was establishing their friendship. Nothing more, nothing less. It happens right after Ron leaves then. Why would Harry put the moves on Hermione after Ron ditches them? That would have been a d**k move, man.

Imagine how awesome it would have been, in movie 5, if after the twins messed up the OWLs, we see Peeves and one of the twins goes, "Give 'em hell, Peeves!"

Dobby ;__; His death would have made more of an impact if we saw him in the other movies.

St. Mungos. I wanted to see Neville's parents.
Was I the only one who thought Harry's "death" scene was VERY anti-climactic? "Hi Harry. Avada Kadavra!" *Falls over* And they left out almost all of Snape's past, which was like a whole chapter in the book. A very GOOD chapter!

5th movie skipped the entire part where harry and the twins got banned from quidditch thats aggrevating


They don't even mention Quidditch in the 5th movie. And they neglect to point out Hermione and Ron are made prefects, and they skip the entire weird door scene in the Dept of Mysteries, which, I don't mind that they left all that out but it was kind of big.

One of the many flaws of the movies, the characters Hermione are different from how they are in canon. Gives a horrible impression for people who haven't read the books, really.

And that's a big reason I feel awkward about the dance scene. It was SO out of character. Harry HATES dancing and is awkward and sucks at comforting people. Harry, of all people, would never comfort someone by dancing with them. It's just not him. The real Harry Potter threw a blanket over Hermione while she was crying and walked away. It's part of his flaws, one I have always been able to identify with, so it bugs me to see him act so differently.

Yeah, I get why they wanted to put the scene into the movie, but I am not okay with the way they have completely changed the characters. These characters are loved for a reason, so I don't accept any excuse for making them do something that is the complete opposite of what we know they would do. I don't care if it looks great or helps demonstrate something the movie people want to get across. It's out of character, plain and simple.

The scene itself was one of the very best in all of the HP films. It was done brilliantly and looked amazing. It had just the right emotion. Looking at it as nothing more than a movie scene, I loved it. However, taking into account what I know about these characters and what I know their actual interactions to be, it bugs the crap out of me.

Also, I'm sorry, but the whole thing with Harry looking Hermione in the eyes as he reaches around her neck to undo the locket, is a romantic gesture. That scene leading into the dance is what makes it look like more than just friends. The actual dancing is silly enough to honestly go either way. I already know they don't have feelings for each other, so I can say it's just friendly. But I guarantee you had I not read the books I'd think they were "obviously" going to end up together. (They've spent six movies pushing Harry/Hermione already, after all.)

Now, if that scene had of been Ron and Hermione from before he left, I would have no problem.

There's so many damn things from the movies that would NEVER HAPPEN in canon, it's ridiculous! But here's one off the top of my head: Hermione suggests to Harry that they can just not search for Horcruxes and live their lives alone together. What the ******** hell?! Once again, out of character! Hermione Jean Granger would NEVER suggest they sit around and do nothing and let Voldemort's reign continue! Much less that she and Harry are gonna live the rest of their lives alone together. Yeah, I see what you did there, Kloves. rolleyes Lonely teenage girl fighting a huge battle or not, Hermione is stronger, more determined, and more noble than that.

Oh, one more. All that effing disapperating inside of Hogwarts. Seriously? How many times does Hermione have to say it?

In The Deathly Hallows Part 2, when Harry saw Ron and Hermione before going into the forest to face Voldemort.
He was supposed to be under his Invisibility Cloak and he wasn't supposed to see anyone he knew, because if he did, he wasn't sure he would have had the strength to keep going. (Except Neville, whom he told to kill the snake. ANOTHER THING.)
Also, I don't think Hermione and Ron would have let him go alone, if they knew...
ALSO, they messed up Neville's badass scene where the sorting hat was lit on fire on his head and he was just like "******** YOU VOLDEMORT." He didn't give some stupid speech about heartfelt crap... Also, he was supposed to slay Nagini BEFORE Harry stopped feigning death. It wasn't supposed to be some drawn out stupid thing with Ron and Hermione.
/huff


I can see why they skipped over the Sorting Hat being lit on fire on Neville's head, though. It would've been too gruesome if they left that in.
