      *SPOILER ALERT!*

      I watched Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince today, the first day it came out, and I must say I was a bit disappointed. I read reviews and also heard from my friends who watched Harry Potter and the midnight show that it was kind of bad, and it’s true. I think the other movies were definitely a lot better, and the actors didn’t have a lot of emotion, even when Dumbledore died.

      First of all, I really hated the beginning. It went on and on, and it was just really disappointing. It was a lot different from the book in a bad way. Dumbledore just find Harry when he is at a muggle cafe, and when they go to


      Horace Slughorn’s house, what “gave it away” was dragon blood (because Dumbledore licked it off the wall), not the fact that there wasn’t a the dark mark. Also, in the book, Horace Slughorn and Harry had a pretty long talk that convinced him to go back to Hogwarts, but in the movie, Horace just talked a little about his favorite students, and that was it.

      Also, the romance was really exaggerated in the movie. In the book, it was really subtle and didn’t become a big thing until towards the end. In this book, Hermione started crying when Lavender and Ron kissed after the first Quidditch match, and she asked Harry if that was how he felt when he saw Ginny and ...


      • Dean together… there was also a lot of obviousness between Ginny and Harry.

        A lot of the action wasn’t there. At the end of the book when Dumbledore is killed, there was a major fight scene. In this one, there wasn’t anything. All there was was Harry chasing after Snape, but Harry’s attacks were so weak that it didn’t do anything to Snape. And Snape shot him back ten feet multiple times, so it was an epically failed attempt.

        However, humor is what saved the movie. I laughed a lot of times, because Ron and Harry had some really funny times. One of these was when Ron ate the chocolate cauldrons containing love potion. He starts talking about how the moon is

        really pretty, and he has this sick lovey look on his face. Priceless. He also starts hugging Slughorn, and in his office, he falls off a couch backwards.

        I didn’t like the ending. It was really stupid. There was no funeral. All there was was Harry talking to Hermione, and Ron was sitting behind them, and Harry talked about how he wasn’t coming back to Hogwarts.

        Since I am a Harry Potter freak, I would probably watch it again, but only for the humor. This was really not that great of a movie, considering how good the book was. So if you only watch Harry Potter for the action and excitement and don’t read the books, then I wouldn’t recommend this movie.
