you know what kills me, what really haunts my deepest darkest dreams? harry using lumos at privet drive in prisoner of azkaban to do his homework. WARNER BROTHERS! Harry Potter WAS NOT ALLOWED TO DO MAGIC OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL. THAT’S WHY HE RAN AWAY AFTER BLOWING UP HIS FUCKING AUNT. Do you understand the MAJOR continuity problem in your adaptation of this billion-dollar book series? DO YOU UNDERSTAND?
YES THANK YOU THIS REALLY UPSETS ME
As well as that, there was no Oliver Wood
No Quidditch Cup almost-win/lose/win
AND NO “This is my last chance, OUR last chance” speech.
And it’s not just that that was Oliver Wood’s last year for the quidditch cup, it’s that that was the year when Harry could still really appreciate childhood, where HE could appreciate the cup as well. Where something as trivial as sports could be just as important as exams and life-changing experiences a la Voldemort.
But they took it out because it wasn’t important.
Harry’s a thirteen to fourteen year old in that film. It WAS important.
