I'm not a huge Harry Potter fan but we picked up the blu ray set (just to test out our new blu ray player if I'm honest....) Of all the ones I've seen so far this is probably the weakest. Not to say it isn't worth watching as its a nice easy watch, nothing too taxing, nothing too spectacular, but it wont be one you'll put in your top 10 of all time. So, worth a watch but dont expect too much is my advice! (read more)

Straight off the bat. I have not read any of the Harry Potter books. I'm not a huge fan of the films although I initially liked the magical fantasy world that was created. Having said all that Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince confused me a far bit. All throughout the film I was waiting for some information about why this half blood prince is important and when the unveiling happened I was underwhelmed.
The story flitted about and several characters who in previous films had been... (read more)

David yates has managed to massacre a great storyline. i dont know what warners bros. is thinking?!?! dont bother with any of his versions of the harry potter movies. the best harry potter movies are the prisoner of azkaban and the goblet of fire. the ones he's 'directed' are pretty bad - moving miles away from the storyline as in the book and replacing scenes with stuff which isnt even in the books. frustrating for harry potter fans!

It's back. Swishing wands, flying broomsticks and one absolutely beautiful castle - it can only be Harry Potter.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is the sixth instalment in the series that follows the triumphs and travails of Harry and his friends as they struggle against the evil Lord Voldemort and his fiery Death Eaters. It is, of course, based on the celebrated books by J K Rowling and if there is anybody left alive who hasn't heard of Harry Potter then they really ought to have... (read more)

There's really two ways that you can look at this film - either as an adaptation of JK Rowling's novel or as a free-standing family fantasy film that's part of a series. Either way you look at it though, this film scores heavily.
As a reader and lover of the books this film is very much what I've been wanting to see since Dan Radcliff first donned a pair of wire-rimmed specs and had a lightning-bolt scar painted on his forehead. 'Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince' is one of the... (read more)

Me and my dad were really looking fowards to seeing this new Harry Potter. When we went to see it we were dissapointed. Through the film i was checking my phone and to me it seemed as though it was going on a bit without a story line. My dad has read the book and says that the producers have missed out soo much. I watched behind the scenes with Ben Sheppards and an interview with Rupert and Emma , Emma said that she kissed Daniel. This didnt happen in the film, i wouldnt reco,mend this film,... (read more)

Very long, lots of special effects and not much of a story just about sums up what is going in the penultimate movie in the Harry Potter series. Well, not strictly speaking the penultimate since they are splitting the final movie in two to squeeze some extra bucks out of punters, but let's not quibble.
In Harry Potter and the Half Blood Price, we rejoin the gang in darker times as the world around them grows more dangerous both inside and outside the magical school where no one seems to do... (read more)
