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

Hermione trying to bang Luna Lovegood.

Only reason I'd see it.

What?

That's even better than trying to bang Ron! Give me two tickets, now!

Well I downloaded saw it, and...

While I agree that it was almost entirely focussed on the teenage angst, the most worrying part of the film was the dreadful acting.  Even Michael Gambon looked like he was just going through the motions, happy to pick up his wages for the minimum effort.

Credit to Helena Bonham Carter and Maggie Smith, who were model professionals throughout what was a truly dreadful film.  Alan Rickman did what was expected but wasn't given nearly enough minutes that his excellent portrayal of Snape deserves.

Now I loved the books.  The fifth and the last were perhaps the worst of the lot, but Half Blood Prince was cool for the background you got on Snape.  As it turns out, even the horcruxes and the importance of the potions book were sidelined for the erm... "talents" of Emma Watson (a wooden spoon could "act" better than she does) and the insufferable Rupert Grint.  I respect Daniel Radcliffe for trying to do alternative projects such as Equus and that WW1 drama, but it's clear that at this stage he's just honouring his contract with the HP films because of the momentous wages he's being paid, as it was a pretty pathetic performance on his part as well.

On a positive note, Tom Felton made a brilliant Malfoy and dare I say it portrayed the character better than Rowling even did in the book (I feel that he lost a lot of face time in the books and kind of fell into a stereotype), but his was the only believable character aside from the three I mentioned earlier.

I agree for all but Malfoy, sure he has the sneer down but when he was standing there trying to kill Albus he looked more constipated than confused/desperate.

That scene was so badly botched that I'm trying not to count it!  No tension, no emotion.  Just dire.  On the whole Malfoy was pretty good in comparison to the others.

I'm starting to think that Actor X trying to bang Actor Y is the only good part of this movie.

So, overall, this film probably isn't worth my time.
I'll just go download LEGALLY ACQUIRE more Farscape episodes.

It's ok, on the internets everyone should just assume that everyone else pirates everything.
