    I fucking hated that they removed Peeves from the movies

  6. Blue Flare says:

    And in the The Half-Blood Prince Tonks is the one who finds Harry on the
    train, not Luna. Also, in my opinion,the move version of The Chamber of
    Secrets wasn’t as good as the book version. It wasn’t nearly as
    suspenseful. Actually, I prefer reading the books. Even though the movies
    are good nothing beats the books

  7. beefyoso says:

    how could you not mention the final fight? the movies completely cut
    neville’s nuts off. in the book he was a bad ass. also, after voldy was
    dead the people were happy and joyful, not sad and whipped like in the

  8. Adam Abdelrehim says:

    What about Grindewald? not mentioned in movie but a major character in end
    of book 7. It takes away so much backstory

  9. AdmiralOctopus says:

    One omission that still bugs me is Sirius giving Harry his magic mirror so
    the two can talk.
    The thing is, the mirror shard does appear in the Deathly Hallows films,
    but where Harry got it from is never explained, making it all the more

    Still waiting for my Hogwarts letter.

  12. Milek says:

    Im dissapointed that Peeves is not in the movie. Only in books and games

  13. Yoshi Waker says:

    We all know the biggest difference is: “HARRY! Did ya put your name in the
    Goblet of Fiya!!!”

  14. robert glasgow says:

    I prefer the book versions of all of these

  15. AquaDayton // Dayton Young says:


    What a great spell to ruin everything about a plot. I could sure use that
    all the time.

  16. Abdou Gunner says:

    imagine if after few years they make a TV series of harry potter with all
    details and every book is a season …. it would be Epic.

  17. Crystal Wolf says:

    did you know in the book order of the phoenix mcgonagall gets attacked by 4
    stunners during harry’s astronomy exam when umbridge attempted to
    (unlawfully)remove Hagrid with the help of 4 aurors when she tries to stop
    them(she didn’t attack them at all she didn’t even have her wand out) and
    is sent to the infirmity, harry goes to see her(aww) and learns she been
    sent to st. mungos she later appears at the end of the book with a cane and
    stops snape from taking points from harry and give harry points

  18. cebmom4ever says:

    Percy Jackson
