  • I think the "awkard" hug fits well into the movie because it underlines how unwillingly Malfoy joins Voldemort at the end

  • I just saw another video on the same thing and you two both pronounced Helena's name wrong, it's Hel-Le-Nah. I don't believe the Holy Cricket one because I saw or read something that said Emma Watson actually hated saying Holy Cricket. So how could it be improvised if she hated saying it from the start?

  • 3:50 Look at the lighting. This scene was not improvised. It even has a 2nd camera angle. 8:28 No. Now they're just making stuff up. That was intentional for the relationship. They knew there would be sequels. 9:00 Is there any truth to these videos at all? Picture the scene without the kid saying the supposed ad lib line. Where does it go without the easy joke?

  • It was stupid when Lucius Malfoy started to say “avada kedavra” and just kind of made it seem like he hadn’t read the book.

  • I like how the actor for Lucius chose to use avada kadavra because it shows how heartless and unhesitating of a character he is.

  • 10 - The line itself (that Ron had the emotional rate of a teaspoon) was in the novel (although shortened in the movie), but I already had the feeling that that laughter was real. Laughing is one of the hardest things to play (so I know from professional actors), and that was too good to be acted. 9 - Damn, they went far for that scene then... Although it never happened in the books it was one of the better changes.. I think 7 - Ya don't say? Never realized it, but it was the icing on the cake in that particular scene. 6 - I never had realized this, but then again... It is something Malfoy would do. 5 - Well, I didn't know that, but it only confirmed that the casting of Luna was one of the best things they did in the entire movie franchise 4 - Now I hated Lucius doing that. Of course, the killing curse failed due to Dobby's intervention, but if it was successful, Lucius would be in big trouble with the dead Harry found right in front of the off the entrance to Dumbledore's office. No way he could ever talk himself out of that one. And Lucius was very well known for always weaseling himself out of any situation (that's why he never got himself in Azkaban until the the end of the 5th novel, and why he was also an "honorable" acquaintance of Fudge). Angry yes, but the killing curse was out of character. It could better be cut. 3 - That hug was creepy and well played out by Tom Felton. It revealed somewhere that Draco's boggart would assume the shape of the very man who hugged him. Also knowing Voldemort doesn't really care about people, this hug does add some extra darkness to that particular scene. 2 - I know Emma was terrified to hug a boy... I didn't realize the handshake (in which Ron & Hermione are as far away from each other as possible (Hey there was no COVID19 crisis back then) was really spot on, considering the relationship between the two at the time, and how it would develop over the rest of the story). 1 - I never knew that line wasn't scripted, but it shows brilliancy from Felton, since it does sound like something Malfoy would definitely say
