Question: In the Astronomy tower, Dumbledore tells Harry to go and get Professor Snape, but then Harry has to hide. So, how did Snape know that Draco and the Death Eaters were in the Astronomy tower with Dumbledore? Draco would not have told him because he did not want help with the mission.
Question: After Harry gets Slughorn's memory, he watches it with Dumbledore. Dumbledore says "This is beyond anything I imagined" after the viewing. But then he goes on to say that he's been hunting for the horcruxes. I don't understand his remark when he's been finding and destroying them, since he must know what they are. How else can you look for something if you don't know what it is? (01:50:20)Knever
Question: Before this year, why did Snape repeatedly apply to teach "Defence Against Dark Arts" if the position was cursed (in the fifth book, when Dolores Umbridge questions him, he admits that he applies every year)? I understand that he really wanted to teach the subject, but everyone knew that the position was cursed. Why put himself in danger, no matter how much he wanted the job?
Question: In Horace Slughorn's house, what was that dragon blood dripping on the ceiling about? He has a dragon?
Question: When Snape tells Dumbledore that he "doesn't want to do this anymore", does he mean his spy work in general or just the agreement to kill Dumbledore?
Question: Every time I've watched The Half Blood Prince I've found myself asking whether or not, at some point during shooting, Daniel Radcliffe actually broke his nose in reality. I'm not sure if it's because of the way the scene is lit, but during several moments within the movie, particularly at the end during his scene with Professor McGonagal, his nose looks swollen. Was any news about an actual broken nose ever reported during the filming?
Question: In the books Malfoy fixes the vanishing cabinet to allow death eaters through and there is a fight between them and the order. However in the film the fight is cut making the whole point of Malfoy fixing the cabinet irrelevant as the death eaters do not need to witness the death as proved by Malfoy's earlier attempts to kill Dumbledore. Considering this, why do they cut the fight, when it is such a vital part of the story line?
Question: Anyone know the story behind why the MPAA rated this movie PG instead of PG-13? From Sectumsepra to the Horcrux cave with the Inferi to Dumbledore's death, there seems to be just as much stuff a young child might find scary/traumatizing in this movie as in the others in the series that actually were rated PG-13.
