How would you have shown his magic eye? I imagine CGIing Moody's eye in every scene would be pretty expensive. They only had to CGI Voldemort's face in one scene.

Re: What are your movie pet peeves?

I have a few dislikes or "pet peeves" in regards to the movies. They have always been minor things though, in general the movies are translated well.
-Hermione screaming "yes, yes!" in GoF after harry returns for his golden egg on broom.
-Harry's "I'm going to kill him(heavy breathing)" refering to sirus in hogsmeade, PoA.

I personally view the movies and the books as two completley different forms of Harry Potter entertainment. The movies have changes to the book, music, great visualizations, action sequences and a well done visual representaion of the book. The books have inner thought of harry, tons of great description, tons of detail, more character/story complexity and development.

The movies are meant to appeal to the non-reader, not just the hardcore fans. In order to do that they couldn't realistically be 4 hours a piece to cram in everything exactly as it is in the book, most movie goers wouldn't be willing to sit through that like me or others here would. I enjoy them both a lot either way therefore I can't really be to disappointed with what we have gotten so far and will get with DH. Can only enjoy new HP anything for so much longer anyways...

The inconsistency from one movie to the next is unbelievable...

Re: What are your movie pet peeves?

Why did the railings around the Astronomy Tower disappear when Dumbledore died? In all previous shots we were shown a big railing around the edge, but when Dumbledore gets hit he falls straight off as the railings have disappeared.

Or are you talking about how Emma Watson over-emphasizes her emotions by overusing her eyebrows? Like, how the eyebrows move up and down with every syllable? I don't really find that too annoying, but we could do without it.

Re: What are your movie pet peeves?

My biggest pet peave...

Quidditch...Extremely stupid sport/game.
What's the point of all the chasers/beaters/keeper, if all you have to do is catch the snitch.
I'm risking getting bludgered or falling to my death playing the game. But I can only score 10 points at a time, and the little guy streaking around looking for the snitch can get 150 and end the game just like that...

Man, stupid stupid game.

Re: What are your movie pet peeves?

^ Isn't that more a book peeve rather than a movie one? They copied it straight from JKR's words.

Haha yeah she opens her mouth so wide to pronounce every syllable. Its especially clear when she's telling Ron how to do the Wingardium Leviosa charm. And then the eyebrows just bring it all together lol.

In the world cup final Krum caught the snitch but his team still lost

Re: What are your movie pet peeves?

The exclusion of tiny details; one-liners, facial expressions, noises, flash visuals, all of it adds the ever-important element of foreshadowing to the books, and really helps everything flow and make the story fall into place. The attention to minuscule detail is what makes the series a wonderfully thought-out modern day epic, and I think it could have been conveyed on film alot better than it has.

I don't really like Emma Watson's acting. That's my only pet peeve..

Re: What are your movie pet peeves?

Adding unnecessary scenes HBP, burning Burrow, I'm looking at you.
And not adding the Quidditch World Cup scene in GoF.

They leave out most of the book.
Harry does not have green eyes. That would have been easy to fix.

Re: What are your movie pet peeves?

Daniel Radcliffe had trouble with green contacts, didn't he? Like, he couldn't get them in? That's why he doesn't have green eyes in the films, or at least that's what I read somewhere

No. They don't.

We've been through this dozens of times. Dan was allergic to contact lenses. One expects an adult, professional actor to suffer for his/her art, but not mere kids and not for mere entertainment.

Besides, the colour of Harry's eyes turned out to be of no importance whatsoever.

I do that do. The movies suffer when compared to the books but are more enjoyable to me if viewed as separate.

Adding things like 'the burning of The Burrow', are some of the most annoying things about the movies!

Yes! And now that the Burrow has been burned, it sets the stage for inconsistencies in DH.

My main pet peeve is the neglect of Tonks. In the movies, she seems to exist solely as a complement to Lupin, and many of her lines are dodgy in terms of characterization. And where is her bubblegum pink hair? NOWHERE.
