Reason 5439236 the HP movies irk me, particularly DH.
In the book, Hermione dances with precisely one person, Ron. They have a lovely time, and they are making strides in their relationship. It also serves to magnify the emotional impact of Ron’s leaving, as well as his return and redemption.
In the movie, Hermione dances with not one, but two people. Krum at the wedding (the scene was cut, but featured a jealous-looking Ron), and Harry in the tent. Basically, the exact opposite of what happens in the book. All this served to do was make Ron look like the bad guy (as always), lessen the emotional impact of his leaving on Hermione, and also hide the fact that Ron was really maturing and trying to change his relationship with Hermione from friendship to something more. The Harry/Hermione dance was so OOC for Harry as well (I dislike that scene with a passion).
Thanks for robbing us of actually seeing Ron and Hermione dancing together, which ACTUALLY happened. Instead, precious screen time was wasted on nonsense.
Just another example of the anti-Romione bias in the films (not to mention an overall lack of understanding of the characters and unnecessary changes to major plot points).
Don’t even get me started on Malfoy Manor. Or Voldemort’s death scene. Or the burning down of The Burrow. Or Harry & Ginny’s entire relationship. I’ll stop now.
