    The Entirety Of 'Half-Blood Prince'

    From Redditor u/vikki427:

    The 6th movie... there is so much wrong with this movie! Granted it was my favorite book and I was looking forward to it the most, but really?!

    The pincers scene. The fact that they focused all their time into Harry liking Ginny and Hermione liking Ron. They took out most about Voldemort's past (WHICH I WAS REALLY looking forward too!) They took out Dumbledore's funeral. Just the fact that they tried to make the 6th movie funny.

    Cho And Harry Kiss

    From Redditor u/Helen0rz:

    The scene when Cho and Harry kissed. It seemed ridiculously unnatural and awkward. Not awkward like it's his first time or anything, but awkward like they were forced into it.

    The 'Do The Hippogriff' Song During The Yule Ball

    From Redditor u/FaithlessAndProud:

    Oh god. I get embarrassed just listening to that thing. It's like they didn't even TRY to make a song that sounded like it could've actually been written by a wizard. Just throw in as many references to magical creatures as you can, it'll sound alright.

    Harry And Hermione Make Out

    From a former Redditor:

    When Harry and Hermione make out in the mirage from the locket in DH. It was so damn uncomfortable to watch, it seemed so forced...

    The Freeze Frame To End 'Prisoner Of Azkaban'

    From Redditor u/Chiokiwi:

    I hate the end of PoA! It's like they couldn't figure out how to end it so . . . freeze frame! Up until that point, it's totally my favorite of the movies.

    Draco And Voldemort Hug

    From Redditor u/Optimus_Klein:

    If I really, reallyyyyy had to narrow it down, I think the obvious choice would be the infamous Draco/Voldemort hug. Oh gosh.
