The Half Blood Prince

Half Blood Prince So, it being opening night and all, and the fact that I'll be on call for the next week, and the fact that Windy will be covering Sunday for me so I couldn't ask him again and and and

Anyways, we went and saw Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince tonight.  

It was pretty good.  There was a lot of humour, which I suppose offset the darkness.  Voldemort really didn't feature at all except to be talked about.  They finally had to give Draco's mother a face (but sadly no Lucius - him being in Azkaban and all). Ginny got much more screen time this movie which was great, considering she was shafted in the last movie.  The movie flowed pretty well and I think did ok at condensing rather a long book into the movie.

But of course I kept thinking, especially towards the end, "that's not how it happened" .. "that's not how it happened" ..!  Especially the climax.  Where was the battle?  There was supposed to be a battle!  And in the end you never find out *why* he's (not mentioning any names) the Half Blood Prince.  

So all in all not bad, but don't think as good as the last one.
