    I had the same problem with the Aberforth Dumbledore scene you single out. I’d read the books, but long enough ago that I didn’t remember the specifics of what was missing (and it definitely felt like something was missing).

    A couple days after seeing the movie I read an interview with Yates where he singled out that scene as one that was longer as shot, but got edited down because it was hindering the pace of the movie. I can definitely respect not being so slavishly devoted to the source material that the movie suffers, but it seems that was an instance where just enough was left in to make it obvious something was being left out, without any satisfactory resolution.

    I had no problem with the fact that they didn’t explain Dumbledore’s questionable past because of 2 reasons.

    1. Movies 6, 7 and 8 do a very good job without going into it directly that Dumbledore isn’t the pristine man we get from the earlier movies and there is something in his past.

    2. I don’t think the contents of that past are as important as what Harry chooses to do when learning about it, which is true in both versions.
