Well, I must confess that I made a slight error in my post Gross Irregularity in Harry Potter Film. I believe that the names on the tombstone (in the Book) are Tom Riddle, a.k.a. Voldemort’s father, and Tom Riddle’s elderly parents. This does not materially change my complaints posted earlier concerning the movie, but it does alter things a bit.
However, as I mentioned in the post, I will be reserving judgement until I see the movie tomorrow. This was emphasized today when I read a NY Times review of Goblet of Fire and saw this image in the story.
Compare that image with this one from the internet movie database and my concerns may have been alleviated. As you can see, the name Tom Marvolo Riddle has been replaced by Tom Riddle, which would fit into the scheme of the book. I’m still confused about the dates, though.
I’ll let you all know tomorrow.
