... She shows a sense of bravery to leave Harry in the background at last and move new issues into the forefront, namely what's happening in the Muggle (non-magic) world, and what's going on behind enemy lines. Only in one other book has JK Rowling written a first chapter independent of Harry, ... Read review

Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince [DVD] [2009]

The sixth installment of the Harry Potter series begins right where The Order of the ... more

Phoenix left off. The wizarding world is rocked by
the news that "He Who Must Not Be Named" has truly
returned, and the audience finally knows that
Harry is "the Chosen One"--the only wizard who can
defeat Lord Voldemort in the end. Dark forces loom
around every corner, and now regularly attempt to
penetrate the protected walls of Hogwarts School.
This is no longer the fun and fascinating world of
magic from the first few booksit's dark,
dangerous, and scary. Harry (Daniel Radcliffe)
suspects Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton) to be a new
Death Eater recruit on a special mission for the
Dark Lord. In the meantime, Professor Dumbledore
(Michael Gambon) seems to have finally removed the
shroud of secrecy from Harry about the dark path
that lies ahead, and instead provides private
lessons to get him prepared. It's in these
intriguing scenes that the dark past of Tom Riddle
(a.k.a. Voldemort) is finally revealed. The actors
cast as the different young versions of Riddle
(Hero Fiennes-Tiffin and Frank Dillane) do an
eerily fantastic job of portraying the villain as
a child. While the previous movies' many new
characters could be slightly overwhelming, only
one new key character is introduced this time:
Professor Horace Slughorn (with a spot-on
performance by Jim Broadbent). Within his mind he
holds a key secret in the battle to defeat the
Dark Lord, and Harry is tasked by Dumbledore to
uncover a memory about Voldemort's darkest
weapon--the Horcrux. Despite the long list of
distractions, Harry, Ron (Rupert Grint), and
Hermione (Emma Watson) still try to focus on being
teenagers, and audiences will enjoy the budding
awkward romances. All of the actors have developed
nicely, giving their most convincing performances
to date. More dramatic and significant things go
down in this movie than any of its predecessors,
and the stakes are higher than ever. The creators
have been tasked with a practically impossible
challenge, as fans of the beloved J.K. Rowling
book series desperately want the movies to capture
the magic of the books as closely as possible.
Alas, the point at which one accepts that these
two mediums are very different is the point at
which one can truly enjoy these brilliant
adaptations. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood
Prince is no exception: it may be the best film
yet. For those who have not read the book,
nail-biting entertainment is guaranteed. For those
who have, the movie does it justice. The key
dramatic scenes, including the cave and the
shocking twist in the final chapter, are executed
very well. It does a perfect job of setting up the
two-part grand finale that is to follow. --Jordan

Harry, The Sorcerer's Apprentice Diamond review

AdvantagesJK Rowling's stories are getting more adult, a thrilling read

DisadvantagesThings must get worse before they get better, I cried lots!!!

"...sense of bravery to leave Harry in the background at last and move new issues into the forefront, namely what's happening in the Muggle (non-magic) world, and what's going on behind enemy lines. Only in one other book has JK Rowling written a first chapter independent of Harry, and still he makes a brief appearance right at the end. …LOVE STILL SHINES A LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS. Old issues remain in the back of your mind, especially those from ..." Read review

Half-blooded?

AdvantagesMagic, mystery...and an evil that isn't powerless

DisadvantagesNone whatsoever

"...is the opening line of Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince. This is the sixth in what was always intended to be a seven-book series. For those Muggles who have lived, unlike the aforementioned Prime Minister, blissfully unaware of the young Potter and his kind: a brief recap. Harry Potter was orphaned as a baby. His parents lost the ultimate life and death struggle against 'him who shall not be named'. The name, whisper it quietly, is Voldemort. ..." Read review

Flying and potions and tears - Oh My!

AdvantagesGreat characters, moves the story on

DisadvantagesThe writing isn't always the best.

"...the sixth instalment in the Harry Potter saga. The publishing world has run out of superlatives and hyperbole to describe the phenomenon that is Harry Potter. To publishers the world over, and not just publishers of children's fiction, JK Rowling is better than the second coming, she is the woman who single-handedly injected new life into kids' literature and made reading cool again. She is the architect of a whole new generation of future adult ..." Read review

Magic and Mystery.

AdvantagesIt is the long awaited next instalment of the adventures of Harry Potter.

DisadvantagesIt is darker than the previous books.

"Harry Potter fever is spreading through the country like wildfire once again, with the release of this the sixth book in the trials and tribulations of our favourite junior wizard. The Harry Potter phenomenon is huge and whether you like the books/films/audio CD's, games, ect, ect or not there can not be many people who do not at least recognise the name Harry Potter. This is amazing really for what started out as a character in a children's book ..." Read review

I love this book, and I hate it

AdvantagesStrong character development

DisadvantagesClumsy, wordy style

"...read volumes 1-6, I know Harry and Hermione so well that they are like friends, and I'm sure many readers feel the same. This is because they're fully-fleshed characters, with ideals, strengths, weaknesses, habits and quirks. Take Harry, for example. He's great at sniffing out trouble, and spotting where something's wrong - but lousy at interpreting his findings and at prioritising. An important feature of the characterisation in the Harry ..."
