Muse: Actually, Ron and Harry are over 17 now, so the trace no longer works on them. Not sure if they mentioned that in the movie, but once the trace is gone the Ministry has no way of tracking you if you break the law with magic.
Otherwise there'd be a lot of unregistered Animagi rotting in Azkaban.
Hermione is the only one that earned her apparating license. If Ron or Harry apparated I'm pretty sure that the Ministry of Magic would know and therefore be able to find them. Of course the film fails to mention this even though it was in the book.
When trying to guide young students through mortal peril, always be as enigmatic as possible, disguising instructions in riddles and relying on coincidence to keep them moving. When they figure it out, it will make you seem a lot more wise. (0) Comments
When running from bloodthirsty Death Eaters, our heroes can run while casting a myriad of spells over their shoulders. When attacked by simple bounty hunters, however, they're speechless with fear. (0) Comments
If a house elf does completely improbable things, like attacking and disarming a half dozen wizards, it's probably just forgotten its place. Simply shout "how dare you" at it a few times and it will quiet right down. (0) Comments
Magical medicine can cure falls from hundreds of feet, petrification, poison consumption, accursed possession, splinched limbs, completely removed bones, and any number of other extreme ailments... but a knife in the chest doesn't even warrant an examination. (1) Comments
If you have the magic to break a nice clean hole in the ice of a frozen pool, it might be a good idea to break all the ice. That way, there won't be any danger of your becoming trapped below it. (0) Comments
If two supporting characters get married, don't bother wasting valuable screen time explaining it. Just have them casually reference it and let the audience wonder when the heck THAT happened. (0) Comments
If Harry is Frodo and Hermione is Samwise (since they stay together from the beginning of the film), then Ron has to be Gollum because he's their stalker that gets beat up by Sam. Poor Ron. (1) Comments
The worst day anyone could have would be to get knocked out by three teenagers, then wake up an hour or so later with hardly any clothes on, then go right into the Ministry of Magic to find your wife kissing Harry Potter's best friend. (0) Comments
If you want to capture your nemesis, transform your snake into an old woman. Then instead of instantly alerting you, have your snake lure the hero back to an old house. Surely he won't escape. (0) Comments
I thought it was more like Terry Gilliam's film Brazil -- which is largely orwell-esque, so I'm definitely not disagreeing. But the scene where Harry's running through the Ministry and the fliers are sticking to him is straight out of Brazil; I think it was an homage to another famous British film, which, imo, is really really really cool :D
When hiding from powerful evil wizards who are searching high and low for you using every resource they can muster, your best bet is to remain in an island nation which is smaller than the state of Florida. (0) Comments
It's a good idea to call out to your friend, the supposed Death Eater, in front of the man who he's spying on before your own death. That'll make it loads easier for him to continue protecting the wizarding world. (0) Comments
Your nightmares about your best friends shown to you through Voldemort's horcrux are only compounded by them looking like Twi-vamps in sunlight. (No wonder Ron struck the locket instead of Harry!) (0) Comments
