Oh absolutely. Please, please, please don't even glance at my review if you haven't read the book. I shall feel so, so guilty if I spoil it for you.

(Now please don't be even more curious now LOL)

@ Woh Ajnabee - Thanks alot for the mini review :D Shall respond to it once I've watched it :)
 
Here is a good review of HBP -
 

WHO would have thought, after five movies and so much hype, that the sixth Harry Potter movie would be better than most of its predecessors?

The only one in its class is the third, The Prisoner Of Azkaban, directed by Alfonso Cuaron. Which one comes out on top is a close-run thing, because Cuaron's movie set the tone for this one. In years to come, I think filmmakers will study Half-Blood Prince for the way it conceals its artifice. It renews the series, but in mysterious ways.

Part of its success is that it's a good movie, not just a good Harry Potter movie. It doesn't rely on familiarity, but on drama and story. It changes the way we think of Harry's world, by creating a new look. The rich saturated colours are gone; everything is darker, paler, sadder, partly because the digital revolution allows more control over hue. Director David Yates, backing up after Order Of The Phoenix, has hit his stride. The control of mood and pace is masterful. The events of the sixth book are partly transitional, but this doesn't feel like a transitional movie. It has dramatic breadth, intensity, extraordinary grace as storytelling and a new depth of emotion. The final two movies, now in production, are in his safe hands.

Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint) are full of the passions of late high school - and then some, because of the dangerous world in which they live - and the film gives that full weight. It has lots of romantic longing, a few jokes about love potions, and Harry's kiss scene  is to die for, but this is not your regular teen movie. Hormones are in play, they just don't drive the script.

Nor is it for small children. It is scary, sad and upsetting. Take them at your peril (and theirs). The series has always been a progression towards adulthood, J.K. Rowling's manual for growing up, and this one jettisons almost all the childish elements. There is little room for Hagrid, refectory high jinks or fantasy flights on winged computer-generated dragons. Death stalks the story.

Life has become more serious for Harry since that mad bitch Bellatrix (Helena Bonham Carter) killed his last relative, Sirius Black (Gary Oldman) in the fifth movie. More grief comes his way but that's part of what makes this a better movie. Unlike almost all that Hollywood finances for a young demographic, the Harry Potter series admits the big questions of life and death and investigates the moral universe. The films are imbued with a sense of values, despite the religious right's objections to witchcraft. These values are sorely tested in every episode. Harry's sense of loyalty and kindness are shoved aside by his hatred of Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton); in this one, Harry shocks himself with his own capacity for violence.

As the fans know, the position of Professor of Defence of the Dark Arts at Hogwarts is difficult to fill. Each film has a new one and they are often a disappointment. In this one, Severus Snape (Alan Rickman) slithers into the job after making a secret pact with Malfoy's mum, Narcissa (Helen McCrory). The vacancy in Potions is filled by Professor Horace Slughorn (Jim Broadbent), a kindly old gent who can turn himself into a well-upholstered chair. Professor Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) lures Slughorn back to the school on purpose: he knows something about you-know-who that Harry must find out.

Yates was an odd choice to direct the fifth movie. He was young and most of his work had been in television. That film used a new writer and it showed. Steve Kloves returns for this one, and the script benefits from his ability to abridge gracefully. Much is left out, but the movie flows and builds smoothly.

The danger in any Harry Potter movie is that special effects swamp the adventures. That was probably true in the last one. It's not true now. This film has some beautiful effects - notably the opening flight of the camera through the streets of London - but it finds the right balance, subjugating computer wizardry to the storytelling. That is the real dark art on display here: the ancient ability to mesmerise us with shadows on a cave wall.

Nevertheless, I wonder whether after long hours of camping people doze off in the cinema hall.

@Woh Ajnabee Thanks for the mini review, but before I read it fully, are there some spoilers, in your post, Tongue for those unfortunate people who havent watched the movie or read the book?



I spent all last evening resting and recuperating from the camp out. Will post news, views and such tonight after work. Tongue
