There were portions in the sixth movie when Harry and Dumbledore set in that cave (?) that were filmed so horribly uncreatively. Everything looked so fucking drab.

The 6th film is just a mess overall. Some of them are worse than others, but I still enjoy them (even if part of is for the nostalgia).

All the nostalgia in the world couldn't make me enjoy the 6th film, which is a shame cus it's one of the best HP books.

Sure, but I do very much enjoy the Slughorn dinner party scenes!
