I liked the movie, it was exciting(when you take out the book equation), but I think they cut it too much. The book was short to begin with, did they really have to cut many of the subplots and explanations(some of which are necessary to continue the series!).
They did not include the memories about Merope. Not sure how Harry is supposed to continue without it since he saw the locket in them. Also, the battle in the castle was cut, along with any explanation as to why Draco chose to let in the death eaters then. Since they cut out the subplot with him controlling the barmaid, it appears that he just gets lucky with the timing. Rather stupid in my opinion, it was important and their skimming bugged me. Also never explained the "Half Blood Prince" name like they did in the book and they simply hid the book forever instead of Harry switching it out. It was rather disappointing.
