Small Moments in the Films You've Noticed
TL;DR: Are there any small moments you've noticed rewatching the films?
A lot of film teachers I've had, and other film students I've spoken to, whenever you rewatch a film you always notice something different. I had a film lecturer mention to their first year class at uni about a story I told her. I was rewatching Pan's Labyrinth for my coursework, and I noticed little motifs of the faun and the more adult themes that I hadn't noticed before. One of the students in her class said, 'I've already watched La La Land, so why do I have to watch it again?' It's just a moment that stuck with me, and even with the Harry Potter films, I've noticed small moments that I may have missed on first, or earlier viewing.
Let me take you back to my first year at college. We had to analyse a sequence from a film, and I chose The OWL scene from Order of the Phoenix. I repeatedly watched this scene, and even now I would definitely go back and rewrite the essay (which on a slight tangent, I found yesterday). But what I noticed is the dialogue between the twins, which is almost drowned out by the fireworks and the Fireworks score playing over it. One of the twins (I think it's Fred) says, before releasing the dragon,
Fred: Ready when you are.
It took me a good seven or eight listens to hear it, and it's so subtle but works so well with the scene. Like it's all pre-planned except the grand finale. But I love how it's just inserted, like amidst all the chaos, they are still the ones to pull it all off.
What are some moments you've seen from the films that maybe you didn't on your first few watches?
I'd love to know. I'll share another one mine on this thread soon.

Music can be seen around us. It differs from which country you belong. There are also a variety of music like Jazz, Pop, RnB and the likes. Music have so many uses in our daily life. It could be stress reliever, entertainment, etc. I want to know what type of music you listen to, which country does it come from, and who is the artist.
I'm gonna share mine. I love Western, K-pop, P-pop, and Christian Music. In Western, I like the boy group One Direction. I love the meaning of their songs and the tune is very relaxing. In K-pop or Korean pop, I like EXO though there are a lot of groups. I'm loyal to them. I love their songs because just by hearing it, you can know what it convey even though you can't understand the song. I also like the dance. P-pop or Pinoy pop, this is my country's own music. I like all Filipino artist, I salute them. I like the tunes and the message it convey. Christian Music or religous music. It gives me inspiration when I feel down. When I feel like nothing will be okay. These musics are my strength during my bad days.
Here's mine now it's you turn
The Harry Potter directors took the movies in different directions over the years capturing the magic of the books.
What film in the series do you believe was able to really capture the heart of the books, despite a restrictive run time?
Would you've sat through a 3+ hour film?
With J.K.Rowling every so often adding to the Harry Potter canon, I wanted to know if there were any parts of the canon you wish would be expanded upon. Even the reveal about how the plumbing system came to be asks more questions than it answers - for example, how did the plumbers not question how big the pipes are? Where does the waste go? Why does it seem like the bathrooms are in the most random of places?
One of the questions I want answered is: What actually constitutes under age magic and how it's reported?
The book canon implies one thing, but the films seem to make it completely different - Just look at how many times Hermione fixes Harry's glasses outside of school time.
Does environment have something to do with it? What about accidental magic? Is it intentional magic that makes it under age? I have so many questions about it.
What are some of your unanswered canon questions that you wish would be answered? I'd love to get a discussion going about them.
Is there anything in the Harry Potter films that you like more than in the books?
As a Muggle, is there any parts or particular scenes in the movies that you like more than in the books? I personally watched the films before reading the books, but I've loved finding out more in depth explanations.
I might speak for a few people here, but as the Prisoner of Azkaban is my favourite in the series I loved reading about the Marauder's Map. I'm not very good at imaginging what things look like within my head so to be able to see what it looks like in the films was a piece of art.
So, what's your favourite part/s........
