My Absence And A Movie Review


Have I really been away for so long? I haven't added a post in about three weeks! That's something. It's felt like forever!

Okay, now onto explaining my web silence. Well, it's summer and I've been hanging with friends, and I was on a family vacation, so yeah. And I have nothing to say on here at the moment, and I didn't feel like wasting our time.

But now I have something to say!

It's a mini-movie review of Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince!

I saw it on the 15th for my birthday party, though my b-day was earlier this month, and I thought it was great. (Note that it's "great." and not "great!")

The acting was better than usual, and though they didn't keep to the book much, it was mostly better for it. I was very disappointed when [SPOILER AHEAD] in the end there was no huge fight scene, which is sad, because I was really looking forward to it [SPOILER OVER].

The pacing was a bit messed up in the second half. There wasn't enough Dumbledore. There's more Harry-Ginny interaction, which I liked, though it was kind of weird.

This will only make sense to you if you've read all seven books: While in the Room of Requirement, they messed up by never showing the Diadem of Rawena Ravenclaw.

Tom Felton, Michael Gambon, Helena Bonham Carter, and Alan Rickman were all GREAT!!!!! (Note the exclamation point.)

[Small SPOILER AHEAD] The scene in the cave was perfect. [Small SPOILER OVER]

Um... That's all I have to say for now, so...

Your Movie Reviewer Blogger Chick,

P.S. Next post will involve book reviews.
