At the Movies: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince : 4

I'd happily go see this movie again, but you have to take it for what it is: a treatment of a book as a movie. As such, there are subplots and scenes from the book that just can't make it to the screen. There are also scenes that are changed from the book.

I'd overheard people talking about the movie commenting on the fact that it was not as "dark" as the book: too much humor, etc. I do not agree. My thoughts are that, without the humor in the movie, you don't want to take any suicidal friends to see the film.

I don't know if I'll see it again at the theatre, but I wouldn't mind doing so.
