Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince – Not as bad as I thought

August 7, 2009

Yes I know, a lot of you found it crap. You struggled to keep awake watching it.

You wanted it to be more like the Transformers, action from the git go right up to the end.

No, this movie is all talk, almost no action. πŸ˜€ Haha, now why does that sound funny.

I read a few reviews before watching it and went into the cinema sort of expecting it because a lot of successful British shows are literally all talk. But you have to understand the Brits. They have a longstanding record of entertaining themselves with words and offbeat ideas so this installation of HP didn’t come as a surprise to me. If you want non-stop kick-ass action, go watch a Hollywood flick with Vin Diesel.

I like the story for its narrative about growing up and first romances, a phase many of us would rather forget. About struggling with the Choice – to be good or bad. About dealing with the loss of loved ones. And about the fact that life goes on regardless of what happens.

By the end of the movie, I still don’t know if the half blood prince is a goodie or baddie. And why is he called half blood (what happened to the other half?)

In fact 6 espisodes into the series, I still haven’t figured out what Harry did that made him royalty to the wizards of his day other than the fact that Voldie killed his mom. I mean, Voldie killed a lot of other people too didn’t he so how come those other people’s kids aren’t as famous?

Anyway, the Half Blood Prince is about things you won’t wanna bring up in a beer drinking session with your mates cuz they’ll yawn but still, for some odd reason it did hit a few notes with me.

4 out of 5.

    Half-Blood Prince, cos his mother’s surname was Prince. She married a muggle and he didn’t wanted to be associated with him and wanted to be known under the wizarding name. Technically, he’s Half Prince. I think you’ll find out in the next movie.

    I liked the movie too. Girls like it cos it’s so fantasy. Great story. The boyfriend doesn’t understand the point of magic and wands but somehow he understands Robots from outer space flying into an epic battle with more robots that don’t belong to the earth differentiated by colour being good guys and no colour being bad. No, I didn’t watch the flick. Friends gave bad ratings for that one.

    Ah, you must have read the book or something. I thought he was royalty or something. So if my mom’s name was Shoemaker, that would make me a half blood cobbler then, lolz…
