* I know it was just the actor speaking the first curse that came to mind, but since it's such a common fan complaint, how about this for an in-universe explanation. Many have pointed out that film-Lucius' attempted use of an unforgivable curse right outside Dumbledore's office at the end of ''Chamber of Secrets'' is out of character as it would almost certainly get him sent to Azkaban... if he used it on a human being. Killing a house-elf, however might have gotten him a slap on the wrist at best, and killing Dobby in front of him would have been the perfect way of putting Harry in his place for the stunt with the sock. Dobby (and presumably Harry as well) misinterprets Lucius' intended target and springs to what he thinks is Harry's defense, and nothing more is said of it.

[[WMG: Molly Weasley is a dark witch.]]
Watch her duel against Bellatrix Lestrange at the end: she was using nonverbal magic, but the spells she was throwing, or some of them at least, were green in color. Note as well that Bellatrix was laughing right until after the first such green spell Molly threw, after which Bellatrix got a shocked and frightened look on her face. She recognized the spell that Molly had just cast at her: the killing curse. And sure enough, Molly did kill her in that duel. Clearly Molly was going for the kill and was using the deadliest magic at her command, including the killing curse. It is a good lesson, when you think about it: DarkIsNotEvil, and some dark wizards and witches were good people and fought against Tom Riddle.

*** Do you mean ancestors? One's grandparents are one's ancestors, one's grandchildren are one's descendants. The descendants of main characters would be more likely to appear in a film set in the future. But then, there's always time travel...

* The main antagonist is not an obscenely powerful dark wizard like Voldemort, but an intelligent and dangerous beast of some sort. Maybe a centaur or werewolf.

[[WMG: Veritaserum doesn't just involve truth-telling, but actual truth]]
When Barty Crouch Jr. is presumably still under Veritaserum's influence, he says to Harry "I'll show you mine if you show me yours" and reveals the Dark Mark on his forearm. For no clear reason, Dumbledore tells Harry to show Crouch his own bloody forearm (a second time). Perhaps something terrible happens if a Veritaserum drinker utters something that turns out to be false, as if the universe has to correct itself from the inconsistency. (And further, in this instance the potion "interprets" Crouch's if as an if-and-only-if.)

science. In fact as we see in the movies Dumbeldore managed a Time Lord-esque regeneration between Goblet of Fire and Prisoner of Azkaban.

*Wands are smart and can probably tell the difference between practice and true combat. So when the kids are practicing their wands know that it's not a true conflict. When Draco disarms Dumbeldore, that was true conflict. Sure Dumbeldore wasn't putting up a fight, but that just proves to the Elder Wand that he's a pussy. Whereas Draco, who did poof out later, at the moment of disarming Dumbeldore had the cajones to stand up to and challenge a wizard who was orders of magnitude his superior in magical skill. Match, Draco, as far as the Elder Wand is concerned.
