* AbandonedCatchphrase: Harry had the habit of saying 'Don't mention it' whenever he helped someone. It wasn't heard again after Chamber of Secrets, when the films took a much darker tone.

** Hermione benefits from this as well, as early as ''Chamber of Secrets''. In the book, after Lockhart releases the cage full of pixies, Hermione is shown recapturing two or three of them at a time by using "a clever freezing charm". In the movie, once Lockhart flees, Hermione takes out the entire classroom full of pixies with a single spell. She also seems to be able to fly a broom as well as Harry and Ron, as seen in ''Deathly Hallows – Part 2'', when in the books she's an atrocious flyer.

** Then there's non-verbal magic. In the books, this is difficult to do at all, and requires much practice and mental discipline (and wasn't even '''taught''' until the sixth year)... while in the films - especially the later ones - virtually everyone throws these around just as regularly as the spoken versions, if not more so.

** Unlike his counterpart in the books, who was definitely under the Imperius Curse, Pius Thicknesse is implied to have joined the Death Eaters and Voldemort of his free will.
*** He seems very tense compared to the other Death Eaters in the room, most noticeably when Nagini is slithering by his feet. It can be inferred that he may have been coerced into cooperating against his will, while not actually being under the Imperius Curse.

* AdaptationalWimp: The films have been accused of doing this to Ron. For example, in the [[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone first book]], Ron and Harry are trapped by a monstrous plant, and Hermione has to save them; she panics so much that she [[ForgotAboutHisPowers forgets about her powers]], and Ron is the one to angrily remind her of what she can do. In [[Film/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone the film]] Ron almost dies because ''he'' panics, and Hermione basically figures out how to save him herself, all while acting relatively calm.[[note]]The change was likely made to avoid the cliche of the only woman being the one who panics. It's a nice gesture, but takes away one of Ron's better moments.[[/note]]

The first five films were made and released as the final three books were being written. The film of ''Philosopher's Stone'' came out a year after the book ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire Goblet of Fire]]'' was published. The final book in the series, ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Deathly Hallows]]'', was published one week before the film ''Order of the Phoenix'' was released in theaters, making it the first film where the viewers watched knowing how the story ended. Some have wondered if the book of ''Deathly Hallows'' was rushed in writing due to Rowling trying to get it finished in time for the movie companies to start working on a screenplay; movies requiring more time in preproduction and actors wanting to know if they will be in the final movie or not before taking other jobs.

The ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' fandom is [[BrokenBase rather sharply divided]] over whether the earlier films directed by Columbus, or the character-driven films which followed, are better; it basically comes down to personal opinion, whether one prefers complete fidelity, point-for-point with the books, or a more cinematic approach that cuts and embellishes as the directors see fit. This being said, all of the films have been overall critical successes.

The ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' fandom is [[BrokenBase rather sharply divided]] over whether the earlier films directed by Columbus, or the character-driven films which followed, are better; it basically comes down to personal opinion, whether one prefers complete fidelity, point-for-point with the books, or a more cinematic approach that cuts and embellishes as the directors see fit. Critics are [[http://www.metacritic.com/person/daniel-radcliffe?filter-options=movies&sort_options=date&num_items=30 less divided]], holding all of the later films in higher regard than the Columbus films. This being said, all of the films have been overall critical successes (the lowest mark on rottentomatoes.com being a 78, the lowest on Metacritic being a 63).

Added DiffLines:

* RealIsBrown: After Creator/ChrisColumbus stopped directing, the films all took a noticeably bleaker color palette. Especially once Creator/DavidYates took over in ''Order of the Phoenix'' (and stayed on as director for the remaining three films), all the movies seem to have been shot with a greyish-brown lens over the camera, symbolising the characters' loss of innocence and feelings of pain and loss.
