Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Review
I've heard that there's a bit of a conflict between the viewers, some say this is the best Harry Potter film yet, some say they were disappointed. I personally, am under the first group. Unless you can't fathom where this movie's existence came from, it's based on the sixth book in the Harry Potter book franchise. David Yates' directing makes cuts from the book, but manages to keep the more important parts in. The end result is a very emotional and dark adaptation, much like the book itself. This is what I like about these series, they gradually become darker, and more grounded in reality, and it shows the characters being able to deal with the situation. Another thing I liked was that Michael Gambon has gotten quite better as Dumbeldore since Prisoner of Azkaban. He's only going to be able to portray him in one more movie (Deathly Hallows Part II), but it's nice to see that he's improved. Probably the only two problems I personally had with it was that the relationship between Harry and Ginny felt somewhat underdeveloped, and the funeral wasn't held (You know for which character). Other than that, I found it to be a very enjoyable adaptation of the book.
