Well I think all the movies had loads of discrepancies in them, but I guess if they ever redo the movies, I hope it would HBP because there were loads of important and touching elements in the book that went missing in the movie. like for example, Harry and Ginny's relationship wasn't given a lot of attention, and same with when Percy and the Minister came over for Christmas, because I think that scene shows just how far Percy was willing to go just to have a high position in the Ministry, and it makes his return in DH more significant.

its just my opinion though

They HAVE to redo OotP.

I cannot believe there is not ONE scene where Tonks says 'Wotcher!' And a lot of the important parts of the book were taken out.

I agree completely! I'm rereading OotP atm and the movie doesn't do the book justice!

I completely agree with this... though I think the H/G relationship just sat awkwardly. I think they should have included more pensieve memories, and have an actual battle at the end even if it was just a little one (I think they explained that it would take away from the battle in DH o_O )

The one movie that I really want to be re-done is HBP. They messed up practically everything of even what was included. Hardly any of it is properly explained. The jump cuts annoyed me more then most anything else. But a good seccond place goes to how they handled the Harry/Ginny relationship. It was like the strung a bunch of parts of the book together in a way that just did not work and was sometimes were even in the wrong order. I left the theatre thinking WTH. Did I just see a Harry Potter parody movie.
The only scene I was impressed with was the cave scene. Everything else lacked the emotional depth I got from the book due to too much being missing from the movie.

I dont know, depends on one's perception i guess. I would have to agree with most on here though that POA is the most forgettable of all of them. It was still very entertaining but would be last in how i ranked the movies from favorite to worse. It seemed to have no real direction at times.

OoTP! They totally messed up.

They left out all the important details and I felt it lacked the emotions that were required. Apart from Imelda doing a good job as Umbridge, the movie just wasn't good enough.

Game Over, Moonpiieee! Wheeeaaatttooooonnnn

i'm gonna have to say that both HBP & OOTP need be re-done cause' its almost like they left out half of the important details in the novels that were needed to be shown while the other half was shown, however, it wasn't explained properly... ....

I agree 100%. I would have loved to see more of the emotional relationship between Harry and Ginny because in the 7th book all it has is Harry thinking about her.
I also think they should redue Chamber of secrets. It's my least favorite. I felt it was poorly done, and they pretty much looked as young if not younger then they first movie. I dread watching CoS when I go on a harry potter movie marathon.
Yes most of the movies did leave out a lot of key events...like that glass mirror thing Sirius gave Harry in the *forgets which book*. That was a key factor in the 7th book and I am very surprised it wasn't in the movie when it was mentioned in the books.
Oh well. Still an amazing series of books and movies! Not all of them will be perfect..well maybe the 7th will since it's two parts! They should have done that to all the movies so they wouldn't have had to leave so much out .

Either Goblet of Fire (they missed an awful lot) or Order of the Phoenix. They missed alot of the funny and happy moments in OotP - Like Ron and Hermione making Prefect!

I feel like either 5 or 6 should be redone. I feel that 6 should be redone first. I feel they should have had more information on Dumbledore and Harry....my point though....

The Half-Blood prince, I felt the movie was going so fast and I would have love to see more of Voldemort's past and of course...was it really hard to do Dumbledore's funeral? :/ and the Order of the Phoenix too! I didn't like it, it's my least fav. movie and book.

OOTP and HBP. I don't know what it is with these two films, but they don't feel right to me. Too rushed and messy or something. I can't quite put my finger on it. GoF left out a lot from the book, but at least that still feels like a complete flowing film for me.

I think both PoA and OOP don't contain the "magic" as in the other movies... I like them, but still they are the most boring ones in the movie series... And they both are good books... I was especially dissapointed in OOP!

HBP first and then OOP

HBP was (in my view) craptastic. They left out a lot and then made up stuff. The subway ride in the beginning? Burrow burning? What was that about.

OOP they need to expand on things. And def add in the part over Christmas in St Mungos. But I did like the scene in the Dept of Mysteries

I think they should redo 5 and 6 because they missed ALOT of stuff. I mean in OoTP the group is supposed to go through different doors in the Ministry! I mean I really wanted to watch Ron get attacked by that plant thing! Then in HBP they didn't do ANYTHING right!

I also think they should have showed Lily Evans in Snape's memory (when Harry saw it in the Pensive)! I mean there was nothing there about her! ANnd they totally did the whole Grawp thing wrong! Harry and 'Mione were supossed to be the only ones there not Ron.

Ron wasn't there in the book because he was playing Quidditch. Since there was no Quidditch in the movie, there is no reason for him not to be there with Harry and Hermione when they are introduced to Grawp.

Sorcerer's Stone, the acting is so horrible I can't bring my self to watch anymore because of the horrible acting by Harry except maybe the wizard chess scene cause Ron is a cutie in it.

I completely agree with you, that's exactly how I felt after watching HBP. It made me wonder about DH, but fortunately DH part 1 was a pleasant surprise after all.

Order of the Phoenix felt really rushed. I would like for them to have included the locket and the scene between Neville and the trio at St. Mungo's. Also maybe explore Harry and Sirius' relationship a bit more. A quidditch match would have been nice too.
