Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

New this month Audio problem: When Harry says "They're my letters, get off me!" to Uncle Vernon during the house flooding with letters scene, his voice is much deeper than in the rest of the film. Obviously one of the last scenes to be shot.

Audio problem: During the scene with the "flying" letters Harry gets one letter and tries to go in his "room", but Uncle Vernon grabs him. When Harry says, "They're my letters," if you watch closely his lips don't move.

Audio problem: When the troll is about to swing at Harry for the third time with his club, Ron levitates his club in mid-air. When the club falls, it hits the trolls head with a loud thunk, then falls to the ground. But you never hear any sound of the club hitting the ground.

Audio problem: When Harry, Ron and Hermione are running away from Mrs. Norris (the cat), Harry yells, "Quick hide through that door!" and if you look close enough you can see that his mouth doesn't move when he says that.

Audio problem: When Hedwig flies from Harry's arm, or owls deliver mail, you hear the sound of wingbeats. However, owl's feathers are specially adapted to allow for completely silent flight. See here for an explanation. http://www.owlpages.com/articles.php?section=Owl+Physiology&title=Feathers.

Audio problem: When Dudley is complaining about the number of birthday presents he got, his mouth doesn't match with what Dudley is yelling. His line is badly dubbed.

Audio problem: In the scene at the very end of the movie when Hermione and Harry are getting on the train, Hermione says, "Feels a bit strange going home, doesn't it?" Harry responds, "I'm not going home, not really." If you look closely, Harry says the words and his mouth moves. Then the camera changes angles and Harry mouths the same words once more, but no sound comes out.

Audio problem: When the letters come flying out of the fireplace, Dudley yells, "Please, make it stop." If you look at his lips during this time, they're not moving.

Audio problem: In Gringotts Bank in Diagon Alley as soon as it comes to the scene with the cart Harry and Hagrid are sitting in with the goblin, when they stop and the goblin says "vault 687" if you look close enough, you can see that his mouth isn't actually moving at all.

Audio problem: Amidst the flying letters, as Vernon begins to chase Harry, when he yells, "Give me that!" and continues with, "Give me that letter!" his lips do not move when visible on screen.

Quotes

Albus Dumbledore: Ah, Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans. I was most unfortunate in my youth to come across a vomit flavoured one. I must say since then I have lost my liking for them. But I think...it might be safe...to have a nice toffee. [He has a bean.] Alas. Earwax.

Mistakes

During the Quidditch match Harry's broomstick tries to shake him off, due to the spell. After Hermione tells Ron, "Leave it to me," in Harry's last close-up before he flips over, the seat that is attached to the broomstick, to make it more comfortable for Dan Radcliffe to sit on, is entirely visible. Glimpses of other seats can be had during the match as well.

Trivia

For anyone who hasn't read the book: The inscription on top of the Mirror of Erised says "erised stra ehru oyt ube cafru oyt on wohsi". If you read the inscription backwards it says "I show not your face but your heart's desire".
