Harry Potter and the HBP Annoyances...

Ok, so after seeing HBP, my verdict -

it was a GREAT flick, but at the same time very disappointing, and even more than that, irritating.

Here's my list of discrepancies that bugged me and then why I think the 7th movie is going to be f'ed...

**Warning!! If you have not read the books, plan to, and don't want them to be spoiled, do NOT read any further!**

- Why the hell does Harry hit on some chick on the train platform? That NEVER happened!! He was waiting at the Dursley's, he finds out Grimmauld Place is now his, and Dumbledore summons Kreacher to make sure he passed into the ownership of Harry, not Bellatrix. Hello! Important!

- Luna finds Harry on the, WTF?! Tonks finds harry on the train, then again - Tonks finds him lurking outside the room of requirement later in the movie.

- Rufus Scrimgeour, ummm, NON-EXISTANT? Hell, I know he isn't that important, but come on, Fudge isn't in the picture...

- The Weasley's house burning down...ok NEVER happened. What the hell? Why didn't they cut this completely ridiculous scene and actually I dunno...add the scene with Harry talking to Scrimgeour, ya know, what actually happened in the book *rolls eyes*

- When Harry uses Sectumsempra on Malfoy, ok Snape does not just WALK into the room, Moaning Myrtle starts screaming murder, Snape tells Harry to go get his bookbag and come right back, with ALL his books as he obviously knows since it was HIS curse. Harry hides the book in the room of requirement, Ginny doesn't even have a part in that.

- The MOST irritating thing, the lack of Dumbledore and Harry discussing Horcruxes, how the HELL are they going to spin that off in the last movie? He has NO idea that they could be Hogwarts items that belonged to the founders. The memory with the Hufflepuff Cup, Morfin, Merope, and Marvolo, Gaunt, Voldemort killing his parents, Voldemort asking for a job at Hogwarts. Umm, all cut out? And THEN some!

- Ok, little peeve, the potion on the lake was supposed to be EMERALD green. Not poo purple or whatever the hell color that was supposed to be.

- Harry was IMMOBILIZED when Dumbledore was killed, not standing there like a douchebag..come ON, Harry would have jumped out or cursed Malfoy, Dumbledore knows his temper and his loyalty, which is why he immobilized him UNDER the invisibility cloak.

- WHERE THE HELL WAS THE BATTLE AT HOGWARTS? Harry did not drink all the Felix Felicis. He gave it to Ron and Hermione, said give some to Ginny and while him and Dumbledore were gone, watch the room of requirement, and keep an eye on Snape, not to mention all hell breaks loose for one of the best action scenes in the ENTIRE series, minus the finale to the 7th book. That scene was what I was looking forward to the MOST, and it wasn't even there!!

-And what is up with them replacing Dobby's parts with Neville in the movies? In the 4th book, DOBBY gave harry gillyweed, NOT Neville. Again, Dobby is lacking in this movie, when he should have been tailing Malfoy. If Dobby is cut out of the 7th movie altogether, I'll be pissed. Oh and in the 5th movie, Neville does not discover the room of requirement, in the book, DOBBY does, as that's where he puts Winky when she's in a drunken stupor, lol

- Bill and Fleur, where the hell were they?! Along with Mundungus Fletcher, who nicked stuff from Grimmauld Place.. not to mention the LOCKET THAT IS A HORCRUX! (not to mention they cut that part out of the 5th movie where they find a locket that won't open and throw it away)...

My question, Bill gets bit by Greyback, Lupin and Tonks are NOT together in the 6th book til they talk about it at the very end, that wasn't even played out... The 7th book OPENS with Bill and Fleur's wedding, and they completely cut out bill and fleur. How are they going to spin that off. I'll go out on a limb and say the 7th movie will start with something that never even happened...ugh..

I'm not gonna lie, the movie was good, and the actors are as always, amazing, but the director or film writer needs to look for a new job.

Why the HELL would you cut out significant parts of the book just to add things that never even happened?? Come on JK Rowling, go supervise this douche, apparently they're running around with their heads cut off...

did they even READ the books?

There is so much back story and things that have been left out, I have no idea how they'll even spin Deathly Hallows. I'm really hoping I'm not disappointed, but I was REALLY hoping this movie tied up some loose ends that irked me about the other movies, but all it did was create more holes they'll never be able to fill.
