Lets face it, films are never ever going to be as good as their books, because books can have so much more detail that films can't have due to time restrictions.
However this does not mean that you can just veer off from the book completely, I mean, there are only several things that are remotely close to the book:
1) The Ron-Lavender relationship is pretty much what I thought it should be... 2)Slug-Club, It isn't really that much of an important plot point and they spent just enough time on it... 3)The Horcrux at the cave- I liked this bit the most, I thought they did it really well...
But there are so many more things that outweigh those few good things:
1) The whole Dumbledore death thing is horrible, i mean Harry is just standing there doing nothing while his mentor is being threatened by death-eaters 2) Harry-Ginny, this has got to include some of the most awkward scenes EVER filmed, they were truly cringe-worthy. 3) Dumbledore collecting Harry, just randomly collecting him from a train station with no explanation as to why, and no justification why he has to return next summer 4) Horcruxes(the memories) these weren't explained at all, is Harry just going to stumble luckily across the remaining Horcruxes? 5) The revealing of the Half-Blood Prince, summed up in one word: anti-climatic
And then there are just random bits added or removed:
1) The Burrow burning down- eh? 2) Luna finding Harry on the Hogwarts Express, and Tonks & Lupin's relationship completely removed- okay in fairness this isn't that important in the long-run so I'm not going to deliberate on it. 3) Bill and Fleur's relationship, how , how, HOW? are they going to start the next film?
All in all my least favourite HP film.
Sorry for the lists, it's just an easy way of summing everything up.
