With the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince just days away, another review of the movie has appeared online and the review is great, giving the movie 9.5 out of 10.
Is Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince the best Harry Potter film yet? Oh yes. Is it one of the best films of the year? Oh yes again.
And I don't just say that through the fog of my well-known Potter fanboyism. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is a remarkable achievement, a film that is moving, that is funny, that is honest and true and sad and sweet. It's a movie about characters who we have come to know and love, and it's a movie that understands that it's these characters, and not the magic they perform, that is the real hook of the series. And it's a film that is just crowded with beautiful vistas and marvelous effects and that has some of the best performances yet for this series.
