Re: Movie mistakes

I just watched GoF again - during the first task with the dragon, Hermione yells "Harry, your wand!" Wouldn't it have made more sense if she yelled 'your broom', since that's what he needed to get past the dragon?

Re: Movie mistakes

I think it's in the first two movies, but Emma mouths lines along with other people in both movies. It's not very subtle either.

I can't remember which movie, but there's one shot where the trio is going into the gryffindor common room, and the door closes behind them...you can clearly see someone's feet at the bottom of the portrait door, closing it.

For the illusion of suspense, they couldn't have said that because by this time the audience doesn't know what Harry is going to summon. When he summons the broom, that is supposed to be the "a ha" moment.

Yes! That irritates me so much! She also does it in PoA in the Shrieking Shack. I don't understand why she feels the need to mouth other people's lines. And surely the directors should have picked up on it and told her to stop...?

Oooh, I haven't ever noticed that. This reminds me of the one often spoken about on MuggleCast - in the Room of Requirement you can see a camera man in focus, in the reflection from the mirrors. I would have thought they'd notice it and edit it out. They didn't even edit it for the DVD.

I do not understand that. How come they do not cut that part out? I have never noticed hermione mouthing lines, but that part has to be cut out....

I have never noticed harry's scar disappearing or moving, the only time I paid attention was in POA the boggart scene, but that was filmed from a mirror, so the scar would be on the other side.

I do not know if this is a mistake or not... but in PS, when Hagrid tells Harry how Voldemort killed his parents, there is a scene where Lily is holding Harry in her arms, and I could clearly see a lamp hanging from the ceiling... I thought wizards did not use electricity. The house looked too muggle!!! well, maybe the Potters were just modern wizards.....

Re: Movie mistakes

In CoS, when Harry and Ron were expelled from the Ford Anglia, their trunks, Scabbers' and Hedwig's cages and a bunch of packages were thrown out as well. When Harry and Ron come inside, they have only their trunks and animal cages, no packages.

Re: Movie mistakes

In OotP, during the film version of Snape's worst memory, James says "impedimenta" to hoist Snape in the air instead of "levicorpus".

Re: Movie mistakes

In GoF, they say Barty Crouch Jr tortured the Longbottoms, but in OotP they say it was Bellatrix Lestrange.

Of course, we know from the books they were in on it together, but somebody watching both films would not.

Why? Both were Death Eaters, both are said to have tortured the Longbottoms. Is it really a stretch to assume they were both complicit?

I agree. The explanation of what exactly went on was poor. It can seem (and this has been the case for some of my friends) to some movie-goers that in GoF one person tortured Neville's parents and then in OotP it was another. It can get confusing. Only people who have read the books will understand.

Re: Movie mistakes

In Ootp, DA meetings. They learn levicorpus, Harry doesn't know this spell yet and it is non-verbal??

My theory on this is that the fire was almost out in GoF, but in OotP there is a roaring flame going. Maybe this would have some effect on Sirius' image.

Yeah, that irked me. Levicorpus is a Prince spell, and it is nonverbal. Harry doesn't know the spell yet, let alone anything about nonverbal spells, seeing as those don't come until sixth year.

They have it in the video game too (I think?). It was in the commercial at least, and it's verbal on that as well.

Re: Movie mistakes

See, here's the thing about Levicorpus: the fact that the OotP movie used it isn't a mistake, just a change from the book. The fact that it's used verbally could be considered as either; however, here's a line from the "Gringotts" chapter of 'Deathly Hallows':

She raised her wand, pointed it at Harry, and whispered, "Levicorpus".

So the mistake is actually Rowling's.

Re: Movie mistakes

My understanding was that any spell could be done verbally or nonverbally, depending on your skill level

Re: Movie mistakes

In the Prince's book, the spell is specifically labelled "nvbl" for non-verbal.

Re: Movie mistakes

Maybe Snape just mean it was best to use it non-verbal that way the person didn't know what was coming.

I suspect you're right. In HBP, Snape asks the DADA class what the advantage is of non-verbal spells; Hermione answers "Your adversary has no warning about what kind of magic you're about to perform which gives you a split-second advantage." Which Snape acknowledges is the right answer, then goes on to say that not everyone can do non-verbal magic, that it takes concentration and mind power. Snape seems to be saying that any spell can be non-verbal if the person is skilled enough....so we can assume "levicorpus" would work as a verbal spell also.

Re: Movie mistakes

Yay, brand new OotP mistake I just caught on DVD: When Harry and the others are sitting at the Gryffindor table talking in the Great Hall, there's this blonde kid with long hair sitting next to Ron. A couple minutes later, at the scene when Trelawney is sacked, the same kid is standing next to them again, but this time he has brown and yellow Hufflepuff robes. I know they only have so many extras to use, but still, can they at least try for some consistency? Maybe he was just sitting at the wrong table, though...
