Re: Movie mistakes

I don't know if these have been mentioned but there were two that I spotted;

When I was younger, I got a new TV which could let you watch things in slow motion, which I thought was amazing :P So I randomly watched a bit of PS in slow motion, the bit where Harry Ron and Hermione are going down to Hagrid's hut to talk to him about Fluffy. I noticed (only when in slow motion, mind) that Emma Watson is mouthing Daniel's lines as he's speaking them! I thought that was pretty funny and strange- very Hermione like really, but still, should have been re-shot I think.

The second mistake was in the OOTP when Harry was dreaming. When he is asleep and thrashing around in his sleep he is wearing a different top to the one he then wakes up in seconds later

Oh you know, stranger things happen in the magical world.

And as for the "sweater on the cat" I thought it was just a lame attempt to show how funny the Weasleys are.

Re: Movie mistakes

My favourite error is in CoS during the dueling club you can see a cameraman amongst the students in one shot. It makes me lol.

Clattering and yelling, the horde of moving statues stampeded past Harry: some of them smaller, others larger than life. There were animals too, and the clanking suits of armour brandished swords and spiked balls on chains.

In that case your're not going to be able to see it. The cameraman is visable on the left edge of the widescreen frame, which no doubt has been croped out in the "full-screen" version.

EDIT: I uploaded the scene on youtube, so all can see it. I slowed it down a bit, because it originally lasts only a second.

Re: Movie mistakes

I'm watching Sorceror's Stone right now and I just noticed this mistake in the Sorting Hat scene: When Hermione is sorted, she gets off the chair and heads to the right corner of the screen towards the Gryffindor table. When Ron is sorted mere minutes later, he heads towards the left of the screen towards Slytherin and Hufflepuff where Draco and Susan have just gone.

Could Hermione have been going to the right side of the Gryffindor table and Ron to the left? I haven't watched the movie for a very long time, so I don't remember what it looks like.

-eta-
Just watched the scene and it's just as I thought. Hermione goes one way around the crowd of firsties and sits next to Percy; Ron goes the other way around them and sits across from Hermione. (They were both being polite and not shoving their way directly through the unsorted kids.)

So, no movie mistake IMO.

Re: Movie mistakes

I actually thought that was a movie mistake, but i guess not..
A movie mistake that was found was in the first movie. Harry and Ron were both coming down into the room where the Mirror of Erised was, and when they took the the Invisibility Cloak off, you could see some green.

They are, lol People who take all their time to notice those stuff were probably really bored.

Re: Movie mistakes

I think I can include an apparent continuity issue with DH1 without a SPOILER ALERT, can I not?

It sure seems to me, when Bellatrix is "questioning" Hermione by lying on top of her, she asks Hermione what they took from her vault at Gringotts. Hermione answers (truthfully, at that point) that they didn't take anything, and Bellatrix retorts that she doesn't believe her. Bellatrix then turns to Hermione's right arm and apparently begins carving her with both hands.

Then cut to: Bellatrix holding onto Hermione's forehead with her left hand and carving on her left arm with her right.

You be the judge--continuity error or no?

By the way, that scene? Marvellously acted by both women. Helena Bonham-Carter played the scene exactly as I imagined she might, but something about Emma Watson's choice to play it in the way she did felt very unusual to me, for some reason. I think she played it much more as a younger girl would. Hermione's eighteen by that point, and she has until then been very cool and beyond-her-years wise. Being in Bellatrix's clutches apparently utterly undid her (at least as played in the movie).

Yes, I think that is so. The back yard has a pergola or something.

But, honestly I think the biggest mistake i've seen, series wide, is Harry's scar moving to the wrong side of his head in PoA. Only I can think of is the frame has been flipped. Or it's a big mistake.

It's the way the scene was shot. If you notice, at the end the camera passes through a mirror, so everything is inverted in the shot with the scar on the wrong side

Re: Movie mistakes

I noticed a little one the other day when my sister and I were re-watching COS. When Harry first goes to The Burrow, he's looking at the Weasley's clock that shows all their family's locations. One of the options is "Dentist," but wizards don't use dentists! Hermione always has to explain what her parents do because nobody in the wizarding world really knows.

Re: Movie mistakes

In PS when Harry and Hagrid are Diagon Ally, you see Harry through Ollivander's window, he has the scar on his head, next scene they show Hagrid holding Hegwid inside his cage waving at Harry, then it goes back to Harry and the scar is not there anymore.

Re: Movie mistakes

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned, as I haven't read right through the thread, but I noticed this in PoA when the twins ambush Harry and drag him back inside to show him the Marauders Map. Harry is invisible (because he's wearing the invisibility cloak), but if you watch the twins closely, especially when they're going inside, you can see that they're walking too closely together for Harry to fit between them. Especially most evident in the frame right before Harry takes his invisibility cloak off.
Also, if you look at their hands closely right when they grab Harry while he's in his invisbility cloak, they are relaxed, not clenched as you might expect if they'd just grabbed Potter and dragged him off to show him the Marauders Map.

This particular scene is right at the beginning of this collection of Fred and George moments from the movies if you want to see it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIlonOPDZPI

Re: Movie mistakes

"Moony" is spelled "Mooney" on the Marauders Map.

Not a mistake. That was done to honor Karl Mooney who worked on visual effects.
