"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince"
Ok, saw a matinee of this movie today. Harry and the gang at Hogwarts is a little bit older. There's teen romance, treachery, potions, and Jim Broadbent. It feels like a tome packed into two and a half hours. It's well done and it's got that "Empire Strikes Back" sort of feeling since the good guys are kinda left hanging and you want to see next movie. I have begun to not understand the plot of the whole thing since I have only read the first book. As each movie progresses, I feel like "who is that character, that person is familiar...?" This happens when I see Helena Bonham Carter in the movie. But I know I'll hit the multiplex when the next one comes out.
