    Kreacher Doesn't Fight At The Battle Of Hogwarts

    From Redditor u/scribbling_des:

    I was really upset that they left out the scene when Kreacher leads the house elves into battle with the locket bouncing on this chest in the Battle of Hogwarts. There was a lot left out of the battle, but the part when the house elves and centaurs join in was really important to me.

    Harry Just Watches Dumbledore Die In 'Half-Blood Prince'

    From Redditor u/MissPippi:

    One of my biggest problems was when Dumbledore went up to what he knew would be his death -- in the books he put a spell on Harry which made him unable to move, and therefore, unable to put himself into danger. In the movie though, Harry just stood by like a bumbling idiot.

    Ginny Is Ruined By The Movies

    From Redditor u/Flamingmonkey923:

    The worst change is clearly Ginny.

    In the books, she's a fireball. She can lie to people without hesitation, and isn't afraid to hex Zacharias Smith just because he's pestering her. When Harry goes through his emo 'I'm possessed' phase, Ron and Hermione both act really nice and accommodating around him. Ginny tells him to shut the f*ck up and stop being such a crybaby. And he does.

    In the movies she's just... not. Almost none of those things happen. She has few lines, which she delivers meekly. Even her 'tough girl' defense of Harry in the second movie just comes off as rather pathetic. It's sad.

    Dumbledore's Backstory Is Missing From The Final Movies

    From Redditor u/cranberry94:

    I wish they had done more with Dumbledore's back story in the 7-8 movies. I don't know how, but it was so interesting to read and I really wanted my non-book reading friends to learn about it. I kept telling them, 'Oh you are going to learn so much about Dumbledore in these movies, just you wait!'

    Hardly Any Mention Of The Deathly Hallows

    From Redditor u/PsychoClownBoy:

    Pretty much NO mention of the Deathly Hallows in either of the Deathly Hallows movies. In fact, if I recall, I don't know if they're even brought up again after the visit with Lovegood.

    The Burrow Being Attacked And Burned Down

    From Redditor u/magic_is_might:

    The Burrow being attacked.

    I know it adds 'drama' and 'suspense,' but it was never addressed afterward. I felt that it was pointless and random.
