Corrected entry: When Harry Potter is writing in Tom Riddle's journal, Tom replies "No, but I will show you." The pages start to flip and stop on a blank page. A date then appears in the top right hand corner of the right hand side page as June 13th. Wouldn't all of the students have been at home that day 50 years ago? Isn't June 13th considered summer holiday? (01:29:17)
Corrected entry: During the duelling club scene, Snape tells Lockhart that instead of disarming, he should teach the students to block unfriendly spells first. Lockart says it's an excellent idea, and Harry and Malfoy are called up. But then Lockhart still tells them to cast spells to disarm their opponent. What happened to blocking spells first? (01:06:04)
Corrected entry: At the start of the film when we see Harry through the window, the top two drawers in the chest of drawers are closed, and the bottom one only slightly open. When Harry comes back into his room and finds Dobby, the top two drawers are open and the bottom one is open wider. (00:03:09)
Corrected entry: In the scene with the pixies, Lockhart introduces himself at the beginning as their new DADA teacher. When he reveals the pixies in their cage, Seamus Finnegan makes an exclamation. Lockhart says, 'That's right Mr Finnegan'. Having only just introduced himself for the first time, how did he know his name?
Corrected entry: In the scene with Dumbledore and Harry after Justin and Sir Nicholas are petrified, Hagrid comes bursting in with a rooster in his hand saying he would swear Harry didn't do it. This scene only makes sense if Hagrid had met Harry in the hall just before the attack, as in the book. Clearly this scene was filmed, then dropped, as it makes no sense in the movie.
Corrected entry: During the credit roll at the end of the movie, the credits show that there were three Slytherin Beaters. There are only supposed to be two Beaters per team. We all know the Slytherins cheat, but come on...
Corrected entry: We see Ron break his wand when the car is soaring out of control into the whomping willow tree. When they've landed in the tree, Ron says "My wand, look at my wand". The tree then becomes even more violent, and Ron drops his wand, and says "what's happening". Eventually they fall out of the tree, get thrown out of the car, and it disappears into the forbidden forest. A few scenes later, Ron is trying to repair his wand with cellotape in the great hall. But at what point did he actually get his wand back? It wasn't in his hand when he was thrown out of the car, he was in too much of a panic to get it whilst in the car, and he certainly didn't venture into the forbidden forest to retrieve it afterwards.
