Key Points

Despite being a beloved classic, the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince drastically and stripped away key characters, memories, and plot points.

Despite the addition of an unnecessary attack on the Burrow, ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’ still captivated audiences with its gripping story.

By drastically reducing the “memories” section of Half Blood Prince, viewers are left without the crucial information needed to comprehend Voldemort’s sinister origins and the power of his Horcruxes.

Radcliffe’s remarkable fortitude in conquering his drinking disorder is nothing short of inspiring – a testament to his unwavering strength and perseverance.

Snape’s enigmatic nickname, ‘The Half-Blood Prince’, is shrouded in mystery – a secret that has captivated fans since its dramatic unveiling in J.K. Rowling’s enthralling novel.


“I literally think the only thing that the book and the movie had in common was the title and the name of the characters” – Mary

“In the book, Death Eaters destroyed Brockdale Bridge and killed 50 Muggles. In the film, they destroyed Millennium Bridge, which bridge it was it doesn’t matter. But all the Muggles escaped, without harm.”

“When they decide to do the Unbreakable Vow in the movie, Snape hesitates. In the book, he doesn’t even question. He just like let’s do it. To show his allegiance. Because he’s playing the game. Right.”

“Dumbledore only mentions that Horcruxes could be anything. Thus it implies that they don’t know what they could be. Obviously is a big fat lie.” – Sam
