It's in there all right, but there was nothing about them being naked, and the illusion wasn't made to sound nearly so large as it was. In any case, that scene was both incredibly awkward and hilarious.
I really enjoyed the movie, but I have to throw in a couple of nitpicks. First, it bugged me that Dobby's headstone wasn't shown. That was always really significant to me, and it would've only added a couple of seconds to the film.
My other two nitpicks are more with the Half-Blood Prince. First, the appearance of the white tomb, while necessary, reminded me of how it was totally absent from the last movie, making it sort of seem to come a little out of nowhere. Not too big of a deal. What really annoyed me is still my biggest grievance about movie 6, the destruction of the Burrow. First they add a scene not in the books where it burns down in the sixth film, then it's back and the seventh film pretends that it never happened.
And that's what really grinds my gears.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1: 9.5/10
My opinion is pretty much the same here, though it's not like the last thing is hard to explain. There was plenty of time to rebuil the Burrow, and hell, they've got magic, what's stopping them from rebuilding it in less than a week? Oh, and one more complain about Dumbledore's grave
, the CG for that was just hilariously bad, it was like something out of an FMV from the PSX era and I'm not even trying to make it sound like hyperbole XD
Oh, I had one last gripe that I kept forgetting before now. After he was spared being cut from the fifth film for "being too important later on", Kreacher's role was really minimalized. What really bugs me is that they left out the whole bit about Harry treating him nicely and therefore earning his respect and maybe even love, particularly Harry giving him the fake locket. That had been very significant to me, and it was one of the things I was most sorry to see get cut down.
Edit: Scratch that, I just remembered my one real gripe with them altering the plot. Wormtail's life debt was never called on, and he (presumably) survived the Malfoy Manor incident when he shouldn't have.
Oh wow, I almost forgot about those, guess I was too busy enjoying the movie to notice them, but yeah, now it's bugging me too. The biggest problem with the first part of the quote is that in the movies the elves are almost inexistant, so everything that involved and will involve them in these movies will lose much of it's impact (see this movie's ending) =/
