Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - 2.4 Chapatis
This movie was actually pretty scary compared to the previous ones (as scary as Harry Potter movies can get. ) But it was the first movie I felt wasn't a complete story. I guess since we're coming to the end of the series this movie was more of a set-up for the next two.
Anyways, kudos to the film-makers, there was great attention to detail (in terms of cinematography) which is what I love in a movie. And yeah, we lose a great character at the end.
My suggestion: If the last time you saw a Harry Potter movie was over a year ago or if you've skipped a couple of movies from the series, then do yourself a favor and rent all of them and have at it in a week. THEN go watch this movie. And please don't think you have to have read the books to watch the movie, I never read a single one of them (big surprise, eh?) The scripts of the movies have been changed to allow non-readers to also enjoy the movies (and J.K. Rowling actually approves every script.)
And yes this next thing is a very nerdy thing to do on my behalf, but here is a link to answer every question you may have when you're catching up on your Harry Potter series: click here
And note to Bollywood: PLEASE DON'T EVER DO THIS AGAIN:

The movie starts around 1:35 and the ridiculousity starts at 1:55. If you have lost your mind for some reason, you have my permission to watch the entire film on youtube by clicking on the subsequent parts.
