Yesterday I went to the movies to check out the new Harry Potter movie. I'm not big Potter fan, I haven't read the books and I've never watched the first film from start to finish. The bits that I've seen of the first film I've always regarded as bit childish and not that exciting (story about bunch of 12-year-old kids, childish?. How can that be. I don't understand).
The Half Blood Prince surprised me positively. It was way more sinister and scarier than I thought. Malfoy was great character, somehow he represented to me the outcasts of the school world. I could not help having impressions of these school shooters while watching Malfoy.
Even tough the movie was scary it also managed to be funny and heartwarming at the same time. Seeing Hermione and Ron squirming around waiting for the other to take the initiative to tell about s/he feels, was quite entertaining. Also the other small side plots were quite alright.
The movie in its entirety was totally perfect. I felt some trouble on the flow of the film. Some how all the events did not tie into each other seamlessly. Anyways the movie was so good that I may go and see the next Potter movie to be out in 2010.
