** At one point in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone'', Scabbers bit Goyle on the knuckle (which was even referenced by Fred and George Weasley in Azkaban). Come ''Azkaban'', and the revelation that Scabbers [[spoiler:was actually Peter Pettigrew, who was the true person responsible for leaking Lily and James Potter's location to Lord Voldemort and thus their deaths, not to mention the revelation in ''Goblet of Fire'' that Goyle's father was most likely one of Pettigrew's comrades among the Death Eaters]] it becomes somewhat disturbing.

Added DiffLines:

* CriticalDissonance: The film was adored by critics when it came out, opening to the most critical success any ''Potter'' film had seen at that point. On the other side, it left the ''Potter'' fanbase fairly polarized.

to:

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks:TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The film's drastic changes from the book were not welcome to some.


Added DiffLines:

* VindicatedByHistory: The film was initially quite divisive for its divergence from the original novel, but now it's one of the most acclaimed and favored films of the eight ''because'' of the huge risk it took, which inspired future films to do the same thing. It opened to the most positive reviews the series had seen thus far, and is the second most acclaimed film of the series on Website/RottenTomatoes -- beaten only by ''Deathly Hallows - Part 2''.

* DisproportionateRetribution: While Aunt Marge's treatment of Harry was quite rude, and deserving of harsh correction, the {{BodyHorror}} of her transformation seems out of line with her actual transgressions and suggests that magic be used to silence someone whose words you don't want to hear.

** The part where Snape gets insulted by the Marauder's Map after Pottermore revealed that it was designed to do that to Snape and ''only'' Snape, not just anyone who tried to read it without the password.

Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityLockOut: This was the point when the movies started to get hard to understand for anyone who wasn't already familiar with the respective books. Most notably, this movie never makes it clear who Padfoot, Wormtail, Moony, and Prongs are, despite later movies operating on the assumption that the viewers all know.
