11 Harry Potter Scenes To Appreciate The Movies For Creating
Megan Hollrah

As a lover of movies compared to books, even I have to say that the "Harry Potter" books are definitely better than the movies. But for the sake of playing devil's advocate, I will tell you why some parts of the movies are better than the books. When reading the books, readers can understand the story better than by just watching the movies. Because the movies need to cut parts of the books so that each movie is not four hours long, all Potter fans can think of more than a few parts of the books they wish were in the movies. But let us not diminish the scenes that were great in the movies, but were not in the books. With that, here are 11 scenes/moments to appreciate that were in the movies and not the books.

1. Harry's gigantic ego:

2. When the Felix Felicis affected more than Harry's luck:

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day
Cape Cod Irish

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation.
