 Am I the only one or did you find this latest installment a disappointment? And it didn’t help that the sound system in the Cinema for the first half an hour of the movie was screwy! Certain scenes were poorly cut and the serious flaw in the scene where by the Professor offered to say a few words at the ‘funeral’ of the giant Spider to console Hagrid.  Hagrid was obviously standing too far forward for Professor Horace Slughorn to be facing him while talking so it looked like he was talking to the space behind Hagrid!

And NO it was not entirely bad in fact on the contrary it was pretty decent in terms of script, special effects and overall storyline.  It’s just that after watching the rest of the Harry Potter movies, you’d be expecting a whole lot more wouldn’t you?  Perhaps the book was so much better? Though I am not inclined to pick a copy up so I wouldn’t have a clue.

Oh and there is no rush to watch it since there is no ending to the movie, it is one of those ‘To Be Continued’  kinda films.

  1. More goofs:

    Anachronisms: The movie shows the destruction of the Millennium Bridge in London. The events in this part of the movie occurred mid-1996. The bridge’s construction began late 1999.

    Continuity: During the scene in which Harry consumes the Felix Felicis, he empties the entire vial into his mouth. However, in the following shot when he is holding the vial between his hands and is speaking to Hermione and Ron, the vial is completely full with the stopper still on.

    Revealing mistakes: Several times throughout the movie, Harry’s glasses clearly have no lens in them. They are just the frames.

    Revealing mistakes: During the quidditch match, when Ron is celebrating a save, the wind blows his robes and you can clearly see the bicycle-like seat attached to his broom.

    Continuity: In the scene in the 3 Broomsticks pub, Slughorn spills some of his drink on the table and on Ron. But a minute later when we see the table filmed from the side Slughorn was on, the table is dry.

    Continuity: When Harry is petrified in the train, he’s invisible under his cloak. But when Luna releases him, he gets up and there is no sign of the cloak.

  2. totally agree tt this movie is quite a disappointment. even more so when i had read e bk 😦 so many impt scenes tt was not in e movie! esp the fight between the order of phoenix and the death eaters aft dumbledore death!!

    e 1st thing tt me and my frien say aft watchin it was tt it’s like we just watch a romance movie. not much of a magical element in it.

  3. What? There was a major fight scene cut??? Gees! That would have made it so much more enjoyable to watch!

    Thanks for the sharing madame! 😉
