Now, the Half-Blood Prince movie had far too many flaws, but the most nonsensical and unnecessary change is Dumbledore's surprise at the Horcrux memory.

In the book Dumbledore already knew about the Horcruxes and needed the memory only as confirmation to how many there were. In the movie, though, it seems as though he's shocked by the discovery after he sees the memory and yet he's already destroyed the ring. So that doesn't really make sense IMO. I mean, how come he's already destroyed the ring if he didn't know about the Horcruxes?

    I had the impression he was shocked by the amount of horcruxes, not that they were created, as he already knew about ring and diary. – HollyK Nov 29 '16 at 7:41

    "So that doesn't really make sense IMO" you can say that about all the movies – user13267 Nov 29 '16 at 12:08

    This is either not a question or a duplicate of scifi.stackexchange.com/q/21679/4918 "Why do Harry and Dumbledore need to get the memory from Slughorn?" – b_jonas Nov 29 '16 at 12:12
  • @b_jonas I don't see anywhere in the other post where this question is addressed. – Alex May 31 at 21:40
