Continuity mistake: In the Christmas scene at the Burrow, while Harry, Lupin, Tonks, and Mr Weasley are talking about Snape: notice the trays of candies/baked goods on the table. When they are done talking and Ginny comes to sit down and give Harry a bite, a spot on the table has suddenly cleared for her to sit down her tray when Ron comes to sit in the middle of Harry and Ginny.


Continuity mistake: When Death Eaters reach Diagon Alley, there's not many people there; but after they crash there with Ollivander, the alley gets pretty crowded immediately.


Continuity mistake: When Ron sits down with Harry and Hermione in the Great Hall before Quidditch, the bowl/spoon is either right beside Hermione's left hand or farther away, depending on camera angle.

Chosen answer: Snape wants to know how Harry knew Sectum Sempra. As shown by him using Occumelancy to see where his copy of Advanced Potion making is. But at the same time, if Snape punished Harry for a spell in a book, Harry could show it to Dumbledore, who would recognise Snape's handwriting. Additionally, Harry was certainly punished in the book - he got detention with Snape every Saturday for the rest of the term. The movie most likely had to cut this for time issues, and also perhaps because the scene is more dramatic if Snape only silently glares at him.
