    10 Important "Harry Potter" Book Moments That Should've Been In The Movies

    How did they leave these out?!

    1. The Potions Puzzle

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    Yes they included the Devil's Snare and Wizards Chess in the obstacles leading to The Sorcerer's Stone, but they left out the best one! After defeating the chess game, Harry and Hermione enter the next room to find a table with seven potions and a crazy difficult riddle to help them figure out which potion will let them go forward. It's very Alice in Wonderland, and we wish they put it in the movie!

    2. The Marauders becoming Animagi


    In the movies we know that Sirius could turn into a dog, but we never learn why. The Marauders became friends when they first started at Hogwarts, and upon finding out about Remus' "furry little problem", they decided to become Animagi to help him through his transformations. How could they leave this out?!

    3. Kreacher's loyalty to Harry

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    Through Harry's first few years of knowing Kreacher, Kreacher was a complete nuisance. However, upon the golden trio spending months at Grimmauld Place before they set of on their quest to track down the horcruxes, they became very close. Kreacher even lead all the Hogwarts house elves into battle at the Battle of Hogwarts!

    4. Amycus Carrow and the Cruciatus Curse

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    When Harry, Ron, and Hermione returned to Hogwarts at the end of the seventh book, they found out the Carrows were in charge of punishment at the school by using the Cruciatus Curse. In the Ravelclaw common room shortly afterwards, Harry witnessed Professor McGonagall call Amycus a coward and Amycus spat in her face. This enraged Harry, so he performed the Cruciatus Curse on him, showing his undying loyalty to McGonagall in the process.

    5. Voldemort's parents

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    While we learned more about Voldemort's past in the sixth movie, they left out how much of an impact his parents had on him. In the book, Harry traveled to the House of Gaunt via Dumbledore's Pensieve and saw Voldemort's mother, Merope Guant. She was in love with a muggle named Tom Riddle, and she created a love potion so he'd feel the same way. After they got married and pregnant, she released the love potion, and her muggle husband became disgusted by her. Because Voldemort was conceived through magic and not love, we discovered why he can't feel for other people.

    6. The visit to St. Mungo's

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    When Mr. Weasley was attacked by Nagini in the fifth book, he was rushed off to the magical hospital, St Mungo's. Harry, Hermione and the Weasleys visited him a couple of days later and came across some familiar faces. They saw Neville visit his parents, who were tortured into insanity by Bellatrix Lestrange and some fellow Death Eaters. It turned into an exceptionally sad scene when we learned just how lost Neville's parents were.

    7. The Third Triwizard Task

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    In the movie, we saw Harry and the other champions run around a maze and try not to get eaten alive by the moving hedges. But in the book, Harry encountered a golden mist that literally flipped his entire world upside down. Harry ran across one of Hagrid's horrific magical creature inventions, a Blast-Ended Skrewt, and one of the Forbidden Forests' giant spiders!

    8. The Department of Mysteries

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    All we saw of The Department of Mysteries in the fifth movie was the room of prophesies and the death chamber. But what about the coolest, creepiest room of all!? One of the mysteries the department wanted to uncover in the book was the mystery of Though, and they had an entire tank of brains swim around. Ron accidentally got tangled up in these brains in his attempt to escape the death eaters, and he almost got killed.

    9. The Quidditch World Cup

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    The fourth movie showed the lead up to the Quidditch World Cup, they cut it as soon as it was about to begin. It would've been amazing to see Krum in action, doing his signature "The Wronsky Feint" move, and see the Veelas turn into their true form.

    10. And Voldemort's ~real~ death scene

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    The eighth movie took Voldemort's death and turned it into a sequence that's not as emotional as the book's. In the book, Harry and Voldemort were in the middle of the Great Hall, dueling as everyone around them watched. It was there that Harry defeated Voldemort, forcing his killing curse back onto him through the Elder Wand being only loyal to Harry, and Voldemort died right there. The exact human death Voldemort feared all of those years.
