Day 26 - Is there any films adaptions that have made you angry because they've ignored important parts of the books?

What a question - sure there is. One always builds up an own world while reading Harry Potter or any other novel. It's a natural process and it is also natural that all those different imaginations cannot appear in the books. However, some parts in the films are really unnecessary while others are really too short cut or even left out. Just to name some of the scenes where I've been really vexed.

1. Why the hell does wormtail not die in film 7.1? This would have taken just a couple of seconds.
2. Why does the Burrow have to burn down in the 6th film - and as by a wonder [okay - magic] it is rebuilt in the 7th.
3. Why did they lieave out the whole story about Percy and the Weasleys?
4. Why didn't they show how Dudley bid adieu to Harry. I quite liked this part in the book.
5. Why did they make the third task of the Triwizard Tournament so boring. Okay, those hedges where quite cool, but I wanted to see a sphinx or one of the bleast-ended skrewts :D

Well, these are just some things that I can remember now. I guess, I could tell you a hundred more. However, all in all one has to say that the movies are really well done and that the most important scenes are included. One should never forget that there is always a time limit and that a film adaption is just an adaption, not the book as original.
