I think the adult Lily does have the same eyes as Daniel Radcliffe, it's the young Lily who doesn't.

The actor who played young Sev said she wore blue contacts but they didn't photograph properly and they just let it go.

Re: What mistakes in the films can you just not overlook?

I don't worry myself with nitpicky stuff, but large glaring inconsistencies between movies or even between scenes really get my goat. For instance, nobody who worked on these movies seemed to know exactly what Expelliarmus does. Sure, it whips the opponent's wand out of their hand like it's supposed to, but half the time it'll also knock them backwards like they just took a battering ram to the sternum. Probably the worst gaffe is in Goblet of Fire (yay, another excuse to trash that movie!) where Harry shouts "Expelliarmus!" at Krum and sends him flying about fifty feet, then runs over to his unconscious body and kicks his wand out of his hand. Excuse me, but I thought the point of the Disarming Spell was to, I don't know, disarm someone?

Maybe it disarms them by incapacitating them?

Otherwise you could just use Stupify or Reducto and it would essentially do the same thing, so what would be the point of having a different spell?

But that's the problem. The films don't clearly distinguish the effects of spells. The characters seem to have the ability to yell six different spells that all essentially do the same thing.

Also a thing that bugged me was Luna using Levicorpus in Order. The Deatheater went flying back into the darkness, which isn't what effect the spell has on someone in the book. It's not even an offensive spell.

I have to laugh out loud, I wish I didn't like this. Is it a dream or a memory?
