Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
hits theaters on Wednesday. I got a chance to see the film last night and I think its the best film since Alfanso Cuaron’s Prisoner of Azkaban, which is my favorite of the series. I absolutely loved the cinematography, specially some of the connected/stiched one-shots. The character moments were just so much fun. I was really surprised that the movie was so much fun, especially considering how dark the marketing has been. Yates brought some of the magic and wonder back that was missing from the last couple films. There isn’t a lot of action sequences but you don’t really notice and it doesn’t really matter. This book, and the resulting film is more about the developing relationships and the backstory of Voldemort. I’m surprised they got away with a PG rating considering some of the violence (blood especially).

Discuss: What did you think of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince? How does it live up in comparison to the rest of the series? I’d be interested to hear what fans of the book thought from an adaptation standpoint. What were your favorite parts? What didn’t you like? The spoiler doors are open, so feel free to talk about anything!

IMAX has pushed the IMAX release of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince back two weeks to give Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen a four week run. Apparently Paramount signed a deal with IMAX to have the sequel shown exclusively in IMAX theatres for four full weeks if Michael Bay used IMAX cameras into the film’s production.

When Warner Bros moved the release of Half Blood Prince back to July 15th, they didn’t take into account Transformer‘s IMAX exclusivity. So now Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince won’t be shown on IMAX screens until July 29th 2009, two weeks after its theatrical 35mm release. Will people wait to pay a premium price to see the few 3D sequences in the IMAX version?
