Title says it all. I would have liked to have seen the Quidditch matches with Ravenclaw and Syltherin.

I would have liked it to have shown EVERYTHING in the book. Not some regurgitated retard version of the third book! That and I would like to have Ron's bravery lines given back to him... you know when he says "If your going to kill HArry you'll have to kill me first" sumthin like that... *bits Hermiones head off and spits it on the floor* Poor Ron... he didnt deserve such good lines to be stolen by Hermione...

I would have liked to see the Quidditch part too. Quidditch is so cool, and they barely show anything about it.

more explanation of the whole marauders thing (my parents were confused) and less of the fight with the whomping willow. oh and I would have loved to have seen them run out from under the invisibility cloak with it trailing in the wind behind them, as it was described. I was so disappointed...it could have looked so cool.

I completely agree with Arabella...I would have also like harry to realize that his patronous (sp?) took the shape of Prongs (even though they completely skipped over the nicknames)...I thought it was a really touching scene in the book.

Basicly they got most of the 3rd movie correct. But I would've liked to have seen the other quidditch matches myself, but they aren't a nessecary thing that the movie needed. But was probably somthin that coulda spiced it up a bit.

I think they should have at least let the audience know that Lupin, Black, J. Potter, and Pettigrew were the Marauders...

...it never explains how both Lupin and Black knew it was a map...and what it did.

1) Hermione breaking down as her schedule overwhelms her.
2) Ron & Hermione's fight lasting longer than 1/2 a scene.
3) The explanation of the "Marauder's Map" and that James was a stag animagus.

I agree that they should have shown so much more of the book but then again I think that about all the movies. She writes so much it's hard to put it all down in that short amount of time. Then agian they could have done it better if you ask me. After the Chamber of Secrets the movies went down hill.

I wish everything from the Shreiking Shack scene could have made it to the film :/ Some film students did it themselves on YouTube and it was brilliant :D

Definatly the quidditch final, because that annoyed the crap outta me... and I would of liked to see the bit in the staff room, even though its not really important. And a potions lesson! Where it shows how pissed off snape is with Neville because o the boggart.. Lol..

I can't believe he did thatXDXD Hilarious...

Lolz.

The Quidditch final definitely, it made the movie so worser without the Quidditch final, boy these directors dont make any sense of what there doing!

Good thread. I wanted them to put the firebolt halfway through the movie so that Hermione actually tells McGonagall to 'strip down' the broom to look for jinxes and stuff. And then, Ron and Harry would stop talking to Hermione! I totally wanted that in the movie.

Also, the explanation of the founders of the Marauders map. I mean, for those HP movie watchers... how would they know that Lupin is Moony, Sirius is Padfoot, James was Prongs and Peter was Wormtail. It would also confuse the audience as to how Lupin knew how to work the map and how Sirius knew the "Map never lies". HUMPH!!!

Most of Quidditch practices and matches and of course, when the FireBolt is given mysteriously to Harry by Sirius :D
