Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Other mistake: Harry now has Dudley's toy room and Dudley's is next to his, however when there is a shot outside the house there is only the one window on the left side of the house and not much space between it and the left outside wall, where is the window for Dudley's very narrow room?

Suggested correction: The room is visible to the viewers right of Harry's window. As Harry's door is directly opposite the window and Dudley's room is to the left as Vernon is opening Harry's locks it can only be Dudley's room above the conservatory.

Stupidity: Harry learns the owner of the diary from the writing on the back and it 'introducing itself'. It's plausible that the name doesn't alarm him; he grew up in the Muggle world. It does imply however, that since learning of Voldemort in his first year, he has not attempted to find out Voldemort's real name/identity. Similarly, Ginny engaged with it, even though she grew up in the Wizarding world and presumably would know the name. Or she never looked at the back or 'introduced herself' to the book.

Suggested correction: Voldemort's real name is not common knowledge in the wizarding world. Even saying the name "Voldemort" is taboo among wizardkind so it is hardly surprising that they didn't spend much time looking for his identity. As Dumbledore explains in chapter eighteen of the novel: "Very few people know that Lord Voldemort was once called Tom Riddle. I taught him myself, fifty years ago, at Hogwarts. He disappeared after leaving the school... traveled far and wide... sank so deeply into the Dark Arts, consorted with the very worst of our kind, underwent so many dangerous, magical transformations, that when he resurfaced as Lord Voldemort, he was barely recognizable. Hardly anyone connected Lord Voldemort with the clever, handsome boy who was once Head Boy here."

Trivia: When Harry, Ron and Fang begin to walk through the Dark Forest there is a close-up of Fang walking towards the camera. At the start of the next shot, at the bottom right of the screen the Ford Anglia is visible. Although the scene of them seeing the car before it rescues them is deleted, this one shot remains of the car 'watching' them. (01:43:40)

More trivia for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Question: Considering how big the Basilisk is, how is it able to travel through the pipes in Hogwarts since so many of them are small?

Answer: It was traveling through the pipes that it could fit into.

So how was it able to get into the girls restroom and kill Moaning Myrtle many years ago? All of those pipes in the restroom aren't large enough.

The girls' bathroom is the entrance to the chamber of secrets. She was in there when Tom Riddle opened it and let the snake out.

Answer: Perhaps the basilisk is a magical creature and can change size at any given time to fit into those tiny pipes.

Yes like the Occamy in fantastic beasts and where to find them.

Answer: The tunnel that leads into the Chamber of Secrets is really big. The basilisk could have made its way up into it.

Yes but the general pipes in the castle are not that size. The entrance tunnel was that big for a reason.
