Biggest Complaint: Harry Potter

Go To

Here's the place to let the world know about something that doesn't work about this show, trope, or author. As the votes roll in, you'll be able to see if it is also a problem for other folks.

At issue:


Showing 10 of 10. Hide items with lower scores.

The inconsistency with magical rules, most notably wand-lore and underage magic.

Very little apparent reason James Potter is remembered as a paragon of virtue by everyone other than Snape.

The ending being a Single-Stroke Battle instead of the epic Final Battle it should have been.

The Ass Pull (The Elder Wand and Wand Allegiance) is also a problem but my main issue is that there are a grand total of two spells fired.

The theme of accepting death is undercut by ghosts and posthumous portraits.

Snape being a huge asshole for 90% of the series.

Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy. Spiking up the darkness is alright if you only have a trilogy to work with, but for the majority of seven books and seven films I was not experiencing any wonder at this "magical" world. Only apprehension and disgust mainly. And even at the end, not everything has been resolved to a satisfactory level.

What in the heck is a Hit Wizard and why don't we ever see one?

Hermione is better off with Harry. NOT Ron.

Order of the Phoenix was rather slow, long, and boring compared to the other books.

The fact that it took Book 7 to to have some action scenes outside of the climax, the Quidditch pitch, and the Triwizard Tournament.
