I could speak for hours on the various flaws of the Harry Potter film franchise and why it just doesn’t cut it for me, from the criminal omission of Dumbledore’s back story to the distressing misuse of Gary Oldman’s talent, or even how the mentions of the eponymous enigma of The Half Blood Prince, which constitutes the subject of this video dissertation, can be counted on one hand.
I won’t though. Here then is a detailed summary of my issues with these films and why I think they’re essentially high-budget screensavers using the sixth instalment of the series as my main argument.

I have issues with these films. They don’t do the books justice but I still love them because I kinda wanted to cling onto the Awesome Harry Potter Experience for as long as possible.
Daniel Radcliffe and friend transgender singer-songwriter Our Lady J
I was so happy when I read the article that this picture accompanied. I found it while waiting at my therapist’s office. Apparently Daniel caught a lot of flack around rumors that he and Our Lady J were dating. Instead of doing what 99.9% of straight cisguys in film would do (vehemently defend and try to prove his heterosexuality, denouncing all ties with Our Lady J), Daniel was basically like “whatever. Think what you want. She’s my friend and she’s awesome.” Word. Trans solidarity learning moment.
