Harry Potter Does it Again....




Well as most of you know we saw the movie Yesterday...WHAT Movie you may ask...PLEEEEASE, is there ANY OTHER??? Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince ...of course!!


If I had to sum up the entire 2 hour and 37 minutes with just one word it would have to be...

'Mesmerizing' ...from start to finish the movie had you in it's ' clutches'...squeezing tightly through the thrilling parts and patting gently in the sweeter moments...of which there were many! To sum up in a sentence... "Our little students of Hogwarts have turned into young adults...when did this happen??" ... I liked this movie so much in that it brought back a side of Hogwarts and the individuals not seen in a while...it seemed to focus a lot on the students and other familiar players...which I liked very much. Many of us in the dark theater were "sighing" and "ahhhh-ing" quite a bit....


The action was over the top wonderful and of course the props, sets, costumes, and other magical stuff made me smile ear to ear in amazement and awe!

Without giving anything away .... like with most movies (and HP is no exception ) many things are changed from how it is written in the book...story line, characters , tasks performed, settings...little tiny things that if you are a real HP junkie (like us) you will notice...if not... it flows
beautifully...totally unnoticed. Now I am not saying this is a bad thing, I understand moving this to fit that is necessary at times for the sake of 'Image Story Telling' ... so it was all fine, and not one ounce of it bothered us. I am curious to hear others tales of what they thought of certain scenes and the small changes.

It was the fastest 2 hours and 37 minutes I have ever spent...went by in a flash...that tells you how swept up in the magic one can become.
To sum up... I fell in love all over again with 3 small kids and their classmates who I got to know several years ago.... this was not a movie of fiction but one of real life characters ...who I believe are out there right now sipping butter beer ... that is the true magic of this movie.... you believe!!...and I do!!!

I saw it last night at the late showing. The crowd was mostly adults, they were very interactive with cheering and clapping.
Lots of great sets, loved the animation of the podium used by Dumbledore. Loved the architecture of the tower and also of the pub. Made me want to get out the wood and start making curved rafters. I know a lot of miniatures are planned to recreate the Weasley's tall cottage in the bog. I have been seeing that chat pop up in various blogs.

Glad you enjoyed it so much.

I 'll likely watch it when it comes on TV sometime :-) In fact i am not sure if I've seen all the others....I have the attention span of a gnat.

Hi Karin...

See...that's the way I felt...this movie inspired me beyond words...I am positive it will most artists...
We had more adults than children in our movie too...which is great as it means this movie spans all ages... that to me is a perfect movie!!
