Saw The Half Blood Prince!
*Dances with glee*
I saw the first day, first show of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince today! :)
I am not giving the full review..just a few random thoughts strung together. The movie is SO commercialised! Not upto the mark (as always) and it seems more like a chick flick in the first half. So much that I felt like puking. Imagine Dumbledore asking Harry if he has something going on with Hermione!??!
Plus, it's filled with the director's own version of the book. The Burrow is burnt down, and tell me where did this happen in the book? It's not something small which can be overlooked, I mean.
The memories (Harry's lessons)aren't shown properly either..and they were the main part of the book. I mean, anybody who hasn't read the book will not understand the grave importance of the memories, will they?
THE WHITE TOMB isn't shown. Pay some respect to Dumbledore atleast! He was THE D-U-M-B-L-E-D-O-R-E!
But the Cave scene, the getting of the fake 'horcrux' , is depicted, I must say beautifully. Full marks to that part. Even though I did cry when Dumbledore died and everyone raised their wands in his honour..
I feel it could have been a bit better.
And, the accompanying picture has Draco in it.. Because Tom Felton looks SMASHING in the movie. Kudos! ;)
