that’s ron and hermione and the other is harry walking away



Tom: It originally said in the script that Hermione slaps Draco. I think they were worried that a punch was gonna be a little too physical. So I said to Emma, “do you wanna run this? We should rehearse this to make it as convincing as possible. Slap me!” She was like, “no i’m not gonna” and I was like “come on, slap me. Let’s do it right now to get the emotions.” And when I said slap me I was like “movie slap me.”
Emma: I feel terrible. I feel really bad. I’m not really sure what I was thinking.
Tom: She just went ‘whush’ and just smacked me right across the face. I didn’t know what to do. I was like “oh yeah that was really great” and kind of just walked off sheepishly.


I’m guessing this challenge list was made before the release of Deathly Hallows: Part I. However, even if I include the 7th movie, it doesn’t make my decision much easier.

I think I have to go with Prisoner of Azkaban, though.

First of all, I love the musical score for this movie. I used to fall asleep to it every night. It also has a lot of amazing things, like…

Aunt Marge…

the Knight Bus…

and of course, Sirius Black.

But beyond that, I feel like this movie had better continuity and transitions (unlike Goblet of Fire)…

…better acting (as the kids got more used to their roles and acting for camera), and better special effects (especially compared to Philosopher’s Stone. Er, Sorcerer’s Stone. Whatever you want to call it).

Those Dementors were creepy.

When we get into later movies, the screenwriters cut out so many things that I just can’t forgive them for. But we’ll get into those later in the challenge.

Oh, the other great thing about Prisoner of Azkaban?

We get to make shameless Titanic jokes.
