As Lord Voldemort tightens his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds, Hogwarts is no longer a safe haven. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort's defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information. Even as the decisive showdown looms, romance blossoms for Harry, Ron, Hermione and their classmates. Love is in the air, but danger lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.



My book review for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince


REVIEW:
I liked this adaption.
I hated one part with a passion though. The same part that got me so choked up while reading, they completely ruined and altered for the film. I didn't appreciate it at all.
Still it was a great two and a half hours spent. Most of the story was still intact perfectly, though squished down to save time.
I found myself really hating Snape by the end of this one. I'm sure so many of you can relate. He is one I hope karma bites in the ass.


4/5

  1. I dropped out of the Harry Potter franchise after watching this movie. To this day, I have never seen the 7th and 8th films.

  2. It's been too long since I read the books so I'm not sure what exactly changed in the adaption from the book. But my plans are to reread the books this month and next! It's been way too long. My son and I are doing a movie marathon over Thanksgiving break.

  3. I love the Harry series. I don't remember the change you mentioned either. Guess a re-read and re-watch are in order ;-)

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
