So, the film everyone's been waiting for is almost here now, but some of you will agree with me that when a film has been too hyped up, they always end up very disappointing. I didn't think Slumdog Millionaire deserved as many Oscars as were given to it, but, on the other hand, Dark Knight certainly deserved more. So, once in a while, a film does come along and live up to our expectations.
I've been skimming through some reviews - I don't like to read too much as they tend to ruin my enjoyment or raise my expectations too high. By all accounts, it's got a lot less action than the other Harry Potters and that if you haven't read the book, you may have trouble following the plot.
Perhaps now is the time to brush up on your reading!
Read this review by Felix, who's 9 3/4 years old. Don't we wish more of our students would write like him?
"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is a very scary film with a lot of surprises.
The sound effects are really good, with brilliant music changing all the time. All the special effects are excellent, such as really realistic fire in two parts of the film.
It also had amazing graphics: Hogwarts had every tiny detail and was really clear. The film missed out a lot from the book but added quite a bit!
The Half-Blood Prince is probably the best Harry Potter film made. It has plenty of everything, but maybe a bit too much kissing."
