Description

Emboldened by the return of Lord Voldemort, the Death Eaters are wreaking havoc in both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Dumbledore is intent upon preparing Harry for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. He needs Harry to help him uncover a vital key to unlocking Voldemort's defenses--critical information known only to Hogwarts' former Potions Professor, Horace Slughorn. Meanwhile, teenage hormones rage across the ramparts as Harry's long friendship with Ginny Weasley is growing into something deeper. But standing in the way is Ginny's boyfriend, Dean Thomas, not to mention her big brother Ron. Ron's got romantic entanglements of his own to worry about, with Lavender Brown lavishing her affections on him, leaving Hermione simmering with jealousy yet determined not to show her feelings. One student, however, remains aloof with far more important matters on his mind. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one.

    This is an unpopular opinion but half blood prince is the best movie and book. Sure it focuses on teen drama but that’s what makes it incredible, it gives us the beginning of real relationships in the world and also has a fair bit of action such as the Cave scene, the burning of the burrow, the penevese, the death of dumbledore, kidnapping of the wand maker. The mood lighting makes it even more fascinating. It sets up the plot directly for the next two movies. And it’s effects are amazing.
  • Still great, but...

    Luna Lovegood is a character that got too much fanfare than deserved.
  • A mix of a dark backstory and a high school drama film

    This is definitely one of the weaker Harry Potter films, but it’s still great. This is an unpopular opinion, but I find the relationships in this more fascinating than Tom Riddles backstory. The way Hermione reacted to the Ron Lavender relationship is just....brilliant. It really blossoms one of the best relationships in the series. Also my second favorite relationship(Harry and Ginny) started in this.
  • Great movie!!!

    This may not be a popular view, but The Half-Blood Prince is incredible. After a bit of a slip up in the fifth film, this entry jumps right back to its feet. Sure, it may have a bit of the slogging teen drama that sort of plagued Goblet of Fire, but it introduces compelling storylines from secondary characters we never even thought we needed, has the most mature tone of the series, and carries the most emotional weight of the franchise. 9/10

    In the unexpected doubts, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince wasn't my intent to see it because right after Order of the Phoenix which was descent enough to tell a big giant story filled to the brim with likable characters, over the top visuals and without a doubt wasn't nearly as conclusive as Prisoner of Akzaban. Either way Half-Blood Prince was nightmare inducing not because of the threating and imitiating Voldermont it's because Half-Blood Prince is about as dark, gut-retching and much better then I expected it to have, although this movie lacks the darkness from Akzaban but feels even more dark, sinister and far more as much a horror film than a child friendly Harry Potter flick, The movie centers around the incoming threat of Voldermont who is abound to threat Hogwartz, kill Harry Potter and the muggles and wizard people are still getting eaten by Death Eaters which is a shame that Harry and his friends embark on another adventure which captures sercets, threats and newcomers along the way. Half-Blood Prince is nearly heart pounding, turns a much more suited dark thrill ride with interesting visuals, a story that makes sense and a ending so shocking that will leave audiences with a normal animalistic rage and tissue wipping crying. I highly recommend Half-Blood it's personally my other favorite Harry Potter film and sure does set up another Potter battle creates tension throughout the main story which makes this molontone dark film so interesting and adrelinine rushing-8/10
