Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Corrected entry: When Harry buys all the sweets from the cart on the train he places them on the chair beside him. But there are clearly more sweets on the chair then there were on the trolley.

Correction: He simply gave the woman a handful of money. If he had more money than there was candy, the lady could simply get (or magic) more.

Corrected entry: At the end of the movie Hagrid gives Harry the photo album. After Harry looks at it and tells Hagrid goodbye, he walks back to the train with his hands at his side and there is no sign of the album in either hand.

Correction: He could just put in one of the pockets of his robes.

Corrected entry: When Hagrid picks up the Philosopher's Stone from Gringotts, he tells Harry "best not mention this to anyone". But as soon as Harry becomes suspicious about Snape, he begins discussing the fact that Hagrid emptied the vault in full earshot of all and sundry, at the dinner table.

Correction: Harry can trust Ron and Hermione, and being the kind of guy Harry is, he would tell those two anything.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: 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. (01:20:50)

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... I might be safe... with a nice toffee. [He has a bean.] Alas. Earwax.
