Harry Potter Moment #189

Harry Potter Moment of the Week 
Harry Potter Moment of the Week was created by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts  and is hosted here @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote or memory  from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself!  How to join up &  upcoming topics here.

Hi everyone! Sorry for the delay in posting - I'm basically working a double week in one this week and am fighting off a flu/cold so this morning I got out of bed, got ready and bolted for work without even thinking of Harry Potter *GASP*  Imagine! Blasphemy, I know. Next week things will be normal again and I'll be a proper Potterhead and fangirl again ;)

If you could change one thing from the fifth film, what would it be?


I'm going to skip over that hateful toad because she does serve a purpose, as vile as she may be. I think that my least favorite thing about the 5th film is how Ginny's character development and purpose is totally glossed over. OotP is where her character truly comes through and she's able to be herself more around Harry.  She puts him in his place over the Christmas Holidays and as much as I always liked her, she earned my respect and admiration 110% in this book. In the movie it's like they couldn't be bothered. The longest book in the series became the shortest film so obviously they trimmed A LOT of good stuff, but I think Ginny's character is the worst offender of all.  It's such a shame.

What about you guys?

  1. So sorry that you're not feeling well AND have to work double! *Hugs* Hope you kick your cold/flu ASAP!

    Ginny got shortchanged so much in the films. :/ She got to cast Reducto in the OotP movie and that was about it. What a shame, indeed!

  3. Ah yes... the problem that is movie-Ginny. The problem doesn't lie just with the fifth film, but I agree that she gets some major development in book 5 that would have been nice to see on the big screen.

  4. Yes we feel the same away about movie Ginny for sure. She was one of my absolute favorite characters and she did really start to shine in this one. To see her character so stripped of the great essence was very hard.
