Couldn't have agreed with you moreSmile.Of all the deviations,I suppose the exclusion of the all-importants parts involving the house-elves Dobby & Kreacher were the most disappointing.It wasn't like they had to create Dobby's character anew coz they had already shown him in the 2nd movie & they also showed Kreacher skulking about the house in the beginning of the 5th movie so how difficult could it have been to show that significant scene between Harry & Kreacher?Confused

Besides,what was the need to add the entirely new character of that little boy called "Nigel"  who seems to be in awe of Harry,specially when the books have a similar character,that of Colin Creevey?

Also,they make certain characters look the total opposite of what they are in the book. For instance:

ConfusedDignified Madame Maxime is shown like a silly,comical character. ConfusedStern & reserved Mr.Crouch  appears mild-mannered & friendlyConfused Vicious giant Grawp is made to look like a playful, innocent overgrown baby.

I'm surprised that JKR didn't put her foot down to such drastic makeovers given to some of her characters,that is if she had read the script(she obviously must have) or seen the film before its release.

Even if they were compelled to cut down on loads & loads of details, they shouldn't have tampered with so much of the book,not to that extent.Ouch

Irrespective of those unnecesary & radical modifications however,I did enjoy watching the movie.I also wished that certain scenes & lines in the movie were in the book itself.Like when Umbridge tells Harry "Tell them (The centaurs) I didn't mean it" & Harry says "I'm sorry professor,but I must not tell lies"LOL & Sirius telling Lucius Malfoy "Get away from my godson"Thumbs UpThumbs UpThumbs Up

i absolutely agree even with d last part
