Movie of the Week: Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince

Good movie, questionable adaptation.

I enjoyed the movie for the most part. It’s weird seeing these kids/adults grow up physically and as actors.  I remembered not liking Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) in the earlier Potter films but he really outdid himself this film.

The only disappointments I had with the film were I wanted more Alan Rickman (Severus Snape).  Since he doesn’t have many big scenes in the final book, I was kinda bummed that some of his parts from the book were cut (like his interrogation of Harry after he uses the spell on Draco).  Also, I don’t think the final confrontation was paced very well.  I don’t want to get into too many details for fear of spoilers but the big death in this film felt less significant than the deaths from the last two films.

I can’t wait to see how they do Deathly Hollows.

  1. I feel that they left a few pivotal scences out. It wouldn’t have hurt to make the movie an additional 15 – 20 minutes. It’s going to hurt the next movie. The people who didn’t read the books will be slightly confused
