okay but why did ya ruin a perfectly good story????

Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone

OKAY SO FIRST OF ALL THIS BOOK IS 10/10 AND IF YOU HAVE'T READ IT YOU GOTTA I SWEAR YOU WON'T REGRET SO STOP READING THIS BECAUSE IT WILL SPOIL IT FOR YOU. Okay now on to my little rant. While both the book and the movie were excellent in every sense of the word somethings between the book and the movie changed, as tends to happen when a book is adapted into a movie. Not much changed but enough to really make me a lil' annoyed ya know? Like in the VERY beginning of the movie Harry meets Draco after the Hogwarts Express drops the kiddies at the school and Draco is like 'yo bro lets be buds that kid (Ron) is a total loser you should stick w/ me and my pure blood buddies.' and Harry basically tells him to stick it where the sun don't shine. BUT in the book Harry actually meets Draco in Diagon Alley where Draco is REAL rude to Hagrid so Harry already knows he doesn't want to be friends with Draco. That's like super important in my opinion because like we it shows right away how loyal Harry is to his pals. GO FRIENDSHIP. Speaking of friends Ron isn't as dim witted as the movie makes him out to be. In the book when our three kiddos are stuck in the Devil's Snare its actually RON that's like 'Guys chill we got this' and remembers to stay calm and the Devil's Snare will let him go. He's the one who remembered the cute lil rhyme but in the movie he's cryin' like a baby and they make Hermione the hero. Like chill give the guy SOME credit Warner Bros. Also Peeves the poltergeist isn't in the movie which makes me upset because he's totally funny and he calls Harry a nutter a lot and he's just really good for comic relief. Okay so the LAST thing that bothers me is the fact that Hagrid has a little cute baby dragon named Norbert and in the movie when Dumbledore finds out that Hargid as a baby dragon he just SENDS IT AWAY WITH NO EXPLANATION AS TO WHERE LITTLE NORBERT IS GOING AND IF I HADNT READ THE BOOK I WOULD BE SO STRESSED ABOUT NORBERT I MEAN HES JUST A BABE. In the book though it is VERY plainly explained that Norbert was sent to Ron's brother Charlie whos a dragon keeper. All safe and sound. So thats about everything THAT REALLY BUGS ME ABOUT THIS MOVIE.

FUN FACT J.K. ROWLING SAID THAT SHE ALWAYS PICTURED DUMBLEDORE SKATING AROUND HOGWARTS ON ROLLER SKATES BUT IT WASN'T IMPORTANT TO HARRY'S STORY SO SHE NEVER SPECIFIED THAT.
