Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

I recently offered to take my daughter to a movie and I told her she could pick the movie as long as it was not an animated feature. That limited our choices to several rated R movies, Transformers, or Harry Potter, which ended up being the winner.

I have never really gotten into Harry Potter. I have not read any of the books and I still have a problem learning the character's names. It took me 4 movies to realize that Dumbledorf was not dwarf. I learned Professor Snapes name this movie and finally quit calling him Colonel Brandon/The Klingon from Galaxy Quest. I think I've seen all of the movies in the series now but I still don't have a clue what's going on.

So on with the review. All you really need to know is that the special effects are good. The kids are growing up. Ron is not as goofy as he used to be, but the kid that played Draco Malfoy went through puberty and looks kind of freaky now. I thought The Half Blood Prince was better than the prior Harry Potter movies. I give it 7.4 stars.
