Okey, I thought that it would be great to write down my opinion on the movies I watch, probably in the future also about the books I read, music I listen to etc. So, here is the first one: Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince! I went to see this one in the theatre some weeks ago with my friends. Please, don't draw any conclusions about my taste of movies based on this! :) I used to be a big fan of Harry Potter's when I was younger but nowadays I watch the movies and read the books rather because I have seen and read all the previous ones. :) A word of warning for those that have not seen the movie or read the book yet, this does include some spoilers!

About the movie itself... I have to admit that I really enjoyed the movie and found it as a positive surprise. I absolutely hated the previous movie, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and since this one was also directed by David Yates I prepared for the worst. Which luckily came out to be unnecessarily. I have read some reviews about the movie from newspapers and I remember that at least one of the reviewers thought that the movie was too faithful to the plot of the book and therefor disliked it. I agree with him, but I find it only positive. It's been a while since I read the book but as far as I remember there was nothing important missing, but on the other hand the movie didn't come out to be too long. I think that the romance perspective was slightly overexaturated and the fact that it was brought up so rapidly and clearly made it seem even pretentious and ridigilous at times. I thought that they went too far with Dumbledore asking Harry about his feelings towards Hermione and so on. Dumbledore is just not the person to give advice in those things. ;) The actors were successful with hardly no exceptions and I was especially glad to see more acting by Tom Felton as Draco Malfoy. He did really good job with reflecting Draco's feelings in the hard situation he was facing. The death of Dumbledore is well done: it comes out to be a really emotional moment unlike the death of Sirius in the previous movie. I left missing the funeral, but when I really thought about it the ending was fine without it. The special effects are used massively but successfully and the result looks really impressive. :)

So there was something about the movie. For those wondering whether to go and see it or not I definitely recommend to go for it! Especially for those that have read the book. The movie might not be perfect but I think that it is a great visualisation about J.K. Rowling's book. From you I'd love to hear opinions on the movie!

There are some links to other reviews, by professionals, this time:



That's all for now. I'll be back to post more soon. :)
