    A troll, acromantula, a werewolf (Fenrir Greyback), The Order Of The Phoenix shows up, and then the Half Blood Prince shows up. Wow.

    11. In Tom Riddle's room at the orphanage, he has seven rocks lined up on his window sill, foreshadowing his seven horcruxes.

    12. Oh, and speaking of Tom Riddle's meeting with Dumbledore at the orphanage, did you notice the picture of the cave in which he hid the locket?

    13. In each of the movies, as the plot grew darker, so did the Warner Brothers logo at the start

    14. When Neville is sent a Remembrall, it turns red, meaning he forgot something, only he can't remember what he forgot. But since he's the only student not wearing any robes, it's safe to assume that's what he forgot.

    15. You can see Mcgonagall's name on a badge next to Harry's father's.

    16. Oh, and speaking of which...

    17. Harry's scar burns in The Sorcerer's Stone because Quirrell has his back to him, meaning Voldemort, on the back of Quirrell's head, is facing him.

    18. The Ministry of Magic's access code is 6-2-4-4-2, which spells out m-a-g-i-c on a telephone.

    19. In 'Prisoner of Azkaban,' a wizard is reading Stephen Hawking's 'A Brief History of Time.'

    22. Slughorn drinks a vial of liquid luck right before the Battle of Hogwarts in 'Deathly Hallows — Part II.'

    23. In 'Chamber of Secrets,' Ron wears robes that are noticeably older and dingier than his peers', probably because they were hand-me-downs.

    25. Another option on the clock is 'dentist,' even though dentists don't exist in the magical world.
