  Re: Some interesting things about this score

I'm not a fan of the "ten-second skip" edit that Yates likes to use. He did it in Order of the Phoenix after Sirius dies, and he did it here when Harry was trying to fight of the inferi in the cave. You don't get to see anything actually happen, just what comes next. I also thought the attack on the Burrow wasn't very well done... it's mostly just people running through reeds and the occasional tension-filled shot of someone looking through them. Not much actual fight takes place, it's just hinted at. (The whole scene also didn't serve any purpose, but that's another matter). And of course he left out the battle at the end entirely.

I don't want to watch the final battle of Hogwarts in fast-forward, or framed in a way that leaves the actual combat up to the imagination. I'm very concerned about how that's going to turn out.
