Some of the offscreen deaths of major or mid-level characters in the final Harry Potter film bugged me a bit. They could have cut some of the exposition in favor of giving at least some of these characters a worthy onscreen send-off.
It was this way in the books as well, though. I think it also just emphasizes the horror and tragedy of the whole thing. It emphasizes that people are dying defending Hogwarts even when you don't see it.
Nobody told me there'd be book readin' involved in this assignment.
