I saw the film this morning at 10:00 AM, and only now did it just strike me that something rather important was supposed to happen at the Malfoy's and...
IT DIDN'T! Unless I missed it, isn't Wormtail still alive??? His hand was supposed to strangle him when he let Harry out. Maybe Voldemort will kill him in the second part, but Wormtail's hesitation was supposed to be a chink in Voldemort's armor, the idea that there is a flickr of human compassion from someone who was shown mercy earlier. No matter how they re-write that scene, I fail to see how Jo Rowling gave permission for them to change it. Maybe it will make a better film in the long run, but then Jo should have written into the book that way to begin with. I was never crazy about how she killed Wormtail. Perhaps she wasn't crazy about it either?
[QUOTE=kirbilicious;1056338741]Absolutely agree! Definitely one of my few complaints. One other small thing I that confused me:
How did Harry, Ron, and Hermoine get captured? Unless I missed it, I don't remember any of them saying Voldemort's name and am curious how they plan to explain their capture.
Didn't they just land? What was to keep them from disapparating again? And you're right about no one saying "Voldemort" before they showed up. They didn't even discuss the "taboo"o or whatever it was called by which they would be able to track down the resistance. That part looked a bit sloppy to me.
