    I call bull on #7 … that is supposed to be from two different angles, hence why you can see her from one and not the other.

    • clay

      That's the first thing I said too. This occurred at two different points in the movie and is two different angles. The bottom shows Harry casting the patronus. The top is a first person perspective from Harry seeing the patronus.

      Exactly I knew it didnt make Fu/ckin sure

    • Bob

      Plus, there's a time travel element involved here, so that makes all complaints of this scene moot.

  • Maavus

    It actually was called "The Philosophers Stone" for a bit if you bought it at Wal-mart because "Sorcerer" implied witchcraft.
    Yeah… I wish i was kidding.

    • Bud Lee

      No it wasn't ….see the 20 above post for the correct explanation

    • derek

      and also i think in great britain its called the philosophers stone and here its sorcerers stone.

      • Bob

        In most of the world it is called Philosophers Stone (like the correct book title) but apparently American publishers thought Americans would be confused so used the 'incorrect' term Sorcerer. Kinda insulting really.

  • Irishstephen

    Don't care – still love the series.

  • DementedGeek

    WOW! Really?? I came here looking for a Hermione nip-slip or something and this is all I get??

    Yeah, #7 is clearly a different tree. But congrats on finding all these mistakes, very productive. Who would have thought that filmmaking isn't technically perfect? Mind not shattered.

  • Cavok

    Americans don't know what Philosopher means so they changed it to Sorcerer. Go 'Merica!!

    • American

      You are right.
      Philosopher's stone is a very old legendary substance. Leave it to some really uncultured shitty marketing department from the USA to try and change history in order to make more money… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philosophers_Stone

      I also remember Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was called Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles in Europe, but that was done just for the money.

      • Ruffestneckaround

        No it was because it was thought that Ninjas were too violent for kids to watch. Also, I heard that Rowling wrote it under the title of Sorcerer's Stone, and it was changed for a similar reason as TMNT, that is was too "dark" of a title for British Children. Don't quote me on the HP stuff I'm not saying I'm right, just that I read that somewhere.
        I remember my English cousin came over here when we were kids and wanted to play Hero Turtles and I was all "WTF is that?!" Oh, Ninja Turtles, sweet! -She was the one who told me of the name change being about ninjas and kids and blah blah blah…

    Man that was so easy it wasn't even fun.

    totally geek…I'm glad I never liked HP movies, either way, the explanation to everything is "a wizzard did it"

    Actually, seems like in #16 the blanket wraps around to the back, and in the second shot Harry is just covering it up.

  • Elle

    Not to nitpick the nitpicking, but…"Philosopher's stone" is an alchemical myth that can supposedly turn lead to gold and restore life. The first HP book used that as its title. When it was published in America it was changed to "Sorcerer's stone" because the publishers thought it would attract more US child readers.

  • Chester

    they only made one mistake…making these movies

  • acoustrix

  • pete

    holy shit! the candles aren't held up by real magic? Damn warner you cheap. At "Marvus" it was called Pjilosophers stone because that is what J.K. Rowling entitled it. America changed it because not enough people can explain to their children what a philosopher is. I wish I was kidding.

  • Chiefs420

    Of course shits gonna change. He's a FUCKING SORCERER! duh…

    • Zombie Jesus

      Calm down Hermione.

      • Chiefs420
