Harry Potter Series - Why Harry?
At the end of The Sorcerer's Stone, Goblet of Fire, and Order of the Phoenix.
In The Sorcerer's Stone, even if Harry never went down to the place where the mirror was in the end, Voldemort and Quirrel wouldnt have been able to get the stone anyway because Dumbledore says only someone who didnt want to use the stone could get it from the mirror. If anything Harry could've only helped them get the stone.
In The Goblet of Fire, if Harry knew he didnt submit himself into the Goblet, then wouldnt he be more suspicious and wouldnt he withdrawl from the competition because someone obviously wanted him dead and in the end if he took the goblet by himself, Cedric wouldnt have died.
In Order of the Phoenix, if Harry didn't go to the Mystery place then the death eaters wouldnt have been able to get the prophecy anyway and Sirius wouldnt have died. If he was more serious about the Occlumency then none of it would have happened. The only good thing that happened was that the people knew voldemort was alive. I am a fan and friend of JK Rowling but she probably shouldve thought more about the plots before she wrote the books and had us act in the movies.

I don't think Daniel Radcliffe wrote this. For one, he doesn't complain about the plots of the movies, ever. For another, Daniel's punctuation and grammar are superior to whomever wrote this (wouldnt has an apostrophe, remember?). Thirdly, none of this makes any bloody sense! I assume that the real Dan Radcliffe would at least research his arguments before making them public? Sorry, but the person who wrote this couldn't possibly be my beloved Harry, and I get irritated when comments or actions are attributed to him in an (unsuccessful) effort to discredit him.

Harry was being proactive by trying to stop things before a problem arose. ------------------------------------------------------------------ In The Goblet of Fire, if Harry knew he didnt submit himself into the Goblet, then wouldnt he be more suspicious and wouldnt he withdrawl from the competition because someone obviously wanted him dead and in the end if he took the goblet by himself, Cedric wouldnt have died. ------------------------------------------------------------------ He couldn't exit due to 'binding magical contract'. He was too honorable not to share with Cedric, not knowing the consequences. ------------------------------------------------------------------ In Order of the Phoenix, if Harry didn't go to the Mystery place then the death eaters wouldnt have been able to get the prophecy anyway and Sirius wouldnt have died.

Death eaters explain that they lured him into the Ministry.

I knew straight away the Dan Radcliff was an impostor - for a start the real Dan is English. He would not call it the The Sorcerer's Stone. He would call it The Philosophers stone.The lesson here is do your homework if you want to be an impostor

In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, wasn't there a powerful magic that bound the selected champions to compete? I don't think Harry could have withdrawn from the competition even if he was onto the fact that someone was out to get him. If the binding spell had not been in place, Dumbledore would have seen to it that Harry did not compete. I agree though, that Harry would have been more suspicious about how his name got into the goblet in the first place, given his past dealings with Voldemort.

If you are asking why Harry did all these things it is because he cannot tell the future!! Why would any of us do anything if we knew that in the end something bad would come of it? Obviously, Harry being the hero that he is had to go down to the mirror in the philosopher's stone to stop voldemort (or as he thought it was, snape). And as for the Trizwizard Tournament, he even wanted to pull out, but he couldn't because its a BINDING MAGICAL CONTRACT. You can't just pull out. And in Order of the Phoenix when he went down to the Department of Mysteries he didn't know what was going to happen to Sirius. He thought Sirius was dying...so wouldn't you want to go rescue him too?? How could he have known that Sirius would die that night?? It's like saying that Harry was stupid to stay at his aunt and uncle's house for 11 years of his life because he was a wizard and could do stuff to them. HELLO you can't tell events that happen in the future!! Just because you read to the end of the book doesn't mean Harry had a book of his life and could make decisions based on that.

We're meant to submit errors by authors, not blunders by characters. We may as well say that Shakespeare screwed up by having Macbeth and Hamlet do the wrong thing.

(1) As others have pointed out, everywhere in the English-speaking world except the USA it's Philosopher's Stone, not Sorceror's. (And it annoys me that the IMDb gets this wrong.) (2) It's one of the fundamental laws of logic that "a false proposition implies any proposition", hence what-if speculations mean nothing; things didn't happen that way, so to spin a so-called "slipup" out of nothing more substantial than "what if they did" is pointless. (3) It says quite clearly in Goblet of Fire that entry into the Triwizard Tournament is a "binding magical contract"; Harry *can't* pull out, however much he wants to.

Oh come on. All characters have flaws, just like all people do, and that includes Harry. I know he can make rash decisions sometimes, but if he was absolutely perfect, and nothing ever went wrong, the books would be boring and pointless. Just because Harry makes mistakes doesn't mean JK Rowling is a bad author and didn't plan the series well.
