She was introduced in book Five, as I remember. Book Five was also one of the best ones I've read, though that could just be a case of Nostalgia.

Nostalgia?  It was released only a few years ago.

Yeah, I think it was book 5.

And yes, butthole.  I've read them all twice through in addition to seeing each of their crappy film counterparts.  The thing is that they took out the friggin battle, and without it the whole thing seems like a chick flick; just one awkward love scene after another, broken up by some CGed people with wands in an attempt to stay faithful to the book.

Perhaps than you should refrain from using 5 year old insults in your posts.  It makes you look less intelligent then you are.  Did I insult you, no, I didn't.  But anyways,  I read book 6.  It didn't seem like a chick flick at all.  Were you paying attention to the plot?  Also, I forgot to mention, but Dumbledore is supposed to act like he does in the movies. 

When I see it I'll write a review of it to see if your allegations are true.  I haven't yet due to issues I won't say on the forum.

BINGO.  That's what makes it that bad.  If I expected the entire focus of the movie to be on Hermione trying to bang Ron, I wouldn't have even gone.

What, the fact it's a novel adaptation is what makes it bad?  Also, there's a reason that there is, from reading what you said, so much love in the movie is because they are 16.  Hormones.  I know they aren't REALLY 16 in real life, but that's how old they are supposed to be.

The fact that they are raging hormone time bombs is appropriate to be in the movie, but not as the main thing, like it was in the latest.
The whole movie was revolving along this mushy "who kissed who" plot, with the sub-plot of the actual story.

Then they seriously screwed up because the book wasn't like that at all.

Kenobro, for gods sakes, hold your tongue until you've seen the movie.

To me, it seemed like the main plot of this movie was Ron and that random girl, and Hermione's reaction. It was so strange and annoying.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Not to mention they didn't even do that right.  Harry never confronted Ginny and ended it after Dumbledore's death like he did in the book.

First of all, I use grammar.  Secondly, the topic is what we thought of the movie.  What do you mean 'new discussion'?  This is the ONLY discussion.

I was joking about the new discussion, and if you notice the quotes around the "1337-sp43k", you can pretty guess I'm again, joking, I mean, yeah, the movie sucks and the book was better, but I didn't actually mean it to be in leet speak, just like someone typing "!!oneoneone", they don't actually mean ones to be placed at the end.

 Hermione trying to bang Ron
That would probably be the only reason I'd go watch it.
