WHAT THE HARRY POTTER MOVIES GOT RIGHT AND WHAT THE HARRY POTTER MOVIES GOT WRONG

  1. RIGHT: The casting of the trio.
  2. WRONG: Harry's hair
    It's supposed to never lay flat and stick up in all different directions. I understand that there was only so much they could do with Dan Rad's hair but c'mon.
  3. WRONG: Ron Weasley's character development
    In the movies, they did this annoying thing where they took a lot of Ron's fantastic lines in the book and gave them to Hermione. Which leads to dumb people thinking Ron is just Harry's goofy friend who eats a lot. NO. HE'S THE BEST. CMON.
  4. RIGHT: Rupert Grint's ability to play comedy
    That being said, Rupert Grint does a fantastic job bringing Ron's humor to life.
  5. WRONG: Michael Gambon as Dumbledore in Goblet of Fire when he asks Harry if he put his name in the Goblet.
    In the book, it specifically says that Dumbledore asks Harry "calmly". HE DOESN'T YELL AT HIM. CMON, GAMBON.
  6. WRONG: Utilization of Tonks and Lupin
    They appear much more frequently in the books and are very important to Harry. In the movies, Tonks gets like 10 lines total. CMON.
  7. RIGHT: Maggie Smith as Minerva McGonagall
  8. WRONG: Making it appear that the Death Eaters can fly.
    Only Voldemort can fly. ONLY VOLDEMORT. CMON, IDIOTS.
  9. WRONG: Narcissa Malfoy's hair
    Bitch is supposed to look blonde as hell and they got her looking like Pepe LePew. CMON.
  10. WRONG: Cutting Kreacher out of HBP and severely cutting his part in Deathly Hallows.
    LOT OF SHIT MADE NO SENSE WITHOUT KREACHER, CMON.
  11. RIGHT: The scene with Harry on Felix Felicis.
  12. WRONG: Harry and Ginny's first kiss.
    OH GOD it was so weird and terrible. WHY WHY WHY. CMON BONNIE WRIGHT.
  13. RIGHT: The Burrow's set design
  14. WRONG: Portrayal of Patronuses in the movie.
    A lot of times VFX made a Patronus look just like a giant silver shield instead of THE MUCH MORE IMPRESSIVE full corporeal Patronus that looks like an animal. See Aberforth casting a Patronus in the end of DH2 as an example. CMON ABERFORTH WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE A GOAT
  15. WRONG: Eliminating SPEW
    To a layman, yes, maybe the whole equal rights for house elves seems like a trivial storyline but considering house elves play a huge part IN EVERY BOOK AFTER 2, maybe it should be important and included ???? CMON
  16. RIGHT: Helena Bonham Carter as Bellatrix Lestrange
    I know they originally wanted Helena McCroy to play Bella but like HBC was perfect so it shouldn't even be brought up.
  17. WRONG: The way Imelda looked when playing Umbridge.
    Acting was fine, but girlfriend should have had a fat suit on. Umbridge was supposed to look like a toad and Imelda just looked like everyone's Republican aunt. They put a fat suit on Matthew Lewis so it stands to reason they coulda slapped one on Imelda CMON
  18. RIGHT: Evanna Lynch as Luna Lovegood
    Have you ever seen an interview with homegirl? She is STRAIGHT UP 100% ACTUALLY Luna Lovegood. She wore radish earrings to her audition and everything. What a little drop of sunshine.
  19. RIGHT: Alan Rickman as Professor Snape
  20. WRONG: Dumbledore and Voldemort battling in the ministry
    This was so brilliant in the books where each fighting style matched the mystique of the character in surprising and even touching ways. In the movie it is just more stupid lightning-splash-dance.

  21. WRONG: Adding the scene where The Burrow gets torched by the Death Eaters.

  22. David Thewlis as Lupin.
    Lupin and Tonks got underused in the movies for sure. But I loved this casting.

  23. RIGHT: that iconic John Williams score!
    How could you forget that??! CMON
