The beauty of the Harry Potter films is that as the actors have aged, their talents have vastly improved. It's been a nice thing to watch especially for someone like me who's not exactly a fan of Harry Potter. Regardless, they're exceptionally made films that feature great fantasy and incredible special effects. Certainly the series isn't terrible but it's just one of those that never captivated me like Batman or Star Wars. With this in mind, I liked, didn't love, the new Harry Potter.
I'm a die-hard Potter fan myself. I've read the books and seen the movies countless times, so I walked into Half-Blood Prince with high expectations. What a delight it was to find that Half-Blood Prince excels above and beyond any of the previous installments and takes its well-deserved crown as Best Potter Movie to Date. Everything about this film won me over; from its beautiful cinematography, delicately woven storytelling and its extremely heartfelt performances. David Yates and company deserve a resounding round of applause for this simply magical accomplishment that is easily one of the best of the year.
