Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Review

Seen on: July 16th, 2009

The players: Director: David Yates Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Jim Broadbent, Helena Bonham Carter, Michael Gambon, Alan Rickman, David Thewlis, Robbie Coltrane, Warwick Davis, Maggie Smith, Timothy Spall, David Thewlis, Julie Walters, David Bradley, Jessie Cave, Frank Dillane, Tom Felton, Matthew Lewis, Evanna Lynch, Helen McCrory, Natalia Tena, Bonnie Wright, Frank Dillane (Teenage Tom Riddle) and Hero Fiennes Tiffin (Young Tom Riddle)

Facts of interest: The sixth installment of the hugely successful boy wizard Harry Potter series adaptation from J.k Rowling book Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince and other reason, Emma Watson.

The plot: In the sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft, and in both wizard and muggle worlds Lord Volemort and his henchmen are increasingly active. With vacancies to fill at Hogwarts, Professor Dumbledor persuades Horace Slughorn, back from retirement to become the potions teacher, while Professor Snape receives long awaited news. Harry Potter, together with Dumbledore, must face treacherous tasks to defeat his evil nemesis.

Iszaham's thoughts: I have to say the sixth installment in the boy wizard saga arrives in theaters a delay than hoped for; it was originally due last fall (due to battle the first installment of Twilight Sage entitled "Twilight" in November 2008) but it worth waiting for because the Half-Blood Prince's arrives just in time to save a summer overstuffed with creatively disappointing sequels and non-sequels movies.

Prologue scene start with the dark cloud changes structure into He Who Must Not Be Named suddenly Death Eater flying around London, destroy the beautiful Bridget and rush to Deagon Ally. The scene was a great touch and a painting alike. It show us the Half-Blood Prince takes the "Potter" series to places deeper and darker than ever before (it's like déjà, remember The Dark Knight the blockbuster success of the 2005 sequel Batman Begins, it was darker except without Harry Potter, Hogwarts, Quidditch, Dark Eater, and Lord Voldemort in the film. Actually, that was worst comparisons.)

I did notice when Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) flirting with a Muggle in London sets before interrupt by Albus Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) who introduces Harry to retired professor Horace Slughorn (Jim Broadbent) as part of a plan to uncover secrets from Voldemort's past. Dumbledore tells Harry he must befriend the new potions teacher at Hogwarts, Professor Slughorn (What? Wait? Slughorn teach potions, what will dear old Professor Snape (Alan Rickman) do? At long last, he has claimed the cursed "defense against the dark arts" class).

This newest installment is tempered, more assured and relaxed. It's the closest the films have come to feeling like we're just hangin' out with our favorite trio Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson (first scene when I saw Emma Watson in the Half-Blood Prince, I'm was speechless, she was so beautiful, elegant, gorgeous definitely cute) and non-the-less Rupert Grint (who brought Ron Weasley brilliantly, I love her famous quotes "Bloody Hell"). It's was hilarious to watch Harry and his friends Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson) are growing up and dealing with hormones racing faster than broomsticks at a Quidditch match. And that's a good thing.

For now, though, Prince treats viewers to superb effects work, longer running time, haunting art direction, great dollops of humor and emotion, and great casting. British actor who in J.K Rowling's Harry Potter franchise was brilliant in interpreted their visionary character.

Already past the point when most film franchises would be wheezing their way toward irrelevancy. The final novel, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, will be adapted into two films in 2010 and 2011 released.

Syurga Cinta vs The Spirit

Just brought two DVD last week. First DVD was Syurga Cinta a 2009 metrowealth drama-comedy directed by Ahmad Idham. The second DVD was The Spirit, a 2008 American comic book adaptation, written and directed by Frank Miller. The film is based on the newspaper comic strip The Spirit by Will Eisner. OddLot and Lionsgate produced the film.

  • Syurga Cinta:
    It's was fun drama romantic movie to watch with family and definitely a great "dakwah" movie, eventhough the movie show a similar "Kiamat Sudah Dekat" story-line still the movie got their own amazing plot and talented actor/actress to keep the movie fun and relevan.

  • The Spirit:
    Frank Miller's jazzy The Spirit answers that question with a cocky wink and a grin. The streets of Central City are almost always dark and threatening, but they're watched over by a guardian who used to be a cop named Denny Colt. One of the 2009 year's most refreshingly fun films to watch but the films featured too much talking and not enough action.

Some People Just Don’t Grasp the Concept of "Can't bowl"

I've got my first paid after two weeks I'm worked at Parit Buntar INN. To exact on July 2nd 2009, I got about RM233.00. Furthermore, it was a sad day (Not because the paid of money, memorial of Farrah Fawcett or Michael Jackson) because it was the last day of Kak Hanis worked here (back study for her Degree in Bio-Medical). We saw and spoke for the last time, even make joke. She was still lovely, nicer and down-to-earth. Still my friendship with her will always remember in ours hearts and minds.

After that my brother and friend decided to go enjoy at Pacific. Azmi was the one asked "How about we play bowling?" (Throw some bowl, sound like fun). My brother loves the idea (he had play before in his life). The truth was, I haven't play once in my life, and of course I'm felt like idiot, watching myself fooling around. At end of games, Azmi was indeed the pro-one in us. The scoreboard was, Azmi score 132 with 3 strike and 2 spare while my brother, Syazary at first was amazing (great than me) but he only got 61 score. I felt much better when I knew I'm beat my brother with 84 score, 2 strike and 1 spare. Now I'm felt... I love bowl. Can't wait to play once again soon with more friends.
