Editorial Reviews

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (Dbl BD)

Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort's defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information. Even as the decisive showdown looms, romance blossoms for Harry, Ron, Hermione and their classmates. Love is in the air, but danger lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same.

Since I had to look elsewhere for DVD details (to decide whether to buy the 2-disc or one-disc film), I thought I'd post here:

1-Disc Wide screen and Full Screen DVD

*Includes both a wide screen and full screen version of the film.
*No special features
*RRP $28.98
2-Disc Digital Copy Special Edition DVD

*Widescreen version only
*Additional scenes (6:31)
*Close-Up with the Cast and Crew of Harry Potter special. Matthew Lewis ("Neville Longbottom") and Alfred Enoch ("Dean Thomas") lead us on an entertaining look at the cast of Harry Potter as they explore their interests away from acting and spend a day on set with the production team (28:30)
*J.K. Rowling: A Year in the Life: A fascinating and intimate look into the life of J.K. Rowling over the last year of writing "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." (49:32)
*One Minute Drills: The cast has 60 seconds to describe their character's personality, history, relationships and other traits before time runs out (6:43)
*What's On Your Mind: Hosted by Tom Felton, the cast is put on the spot when asked a series of rapid-fire questions on their likes and dislikes. (6:41)
*Universal's "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" Sneak Peek: Get an "inside look" at the amazing world of magic and excitement being created at Universal Orlando® Resort in Florida (11:38)
*Digital Copy of the theatrical film (2nd disc)
*RRP $34.99

I can't believe the negative reviews. I read the book and thought the filmmakers did a fantastic job with it. Anyone who wants a film to be an exact replica of any book should do themselves a favor and just read the book again. Am looking forward to enjoying it again (and again) on DVD.

First. please let me say that I adore (nay, worship) the Harry Potter stories. So, being a gen-you-wine "Potter-Head" I was first in line to see Half-Blood Prince.

It was an interesting movie. Nice special effects.
Disjointed enough however that one MUST have seen all the previous movies and/or read the books to follow the plot.

...Most importantly, it bears little resemblance to the Harry Potter books!!!

Really. I can forgive replacing the actions of one character with another character, to save time, I can even forgive eliminating whole chapters for the sake of brevity, but to change scenes, edit whole parts, and invent whole chapters???

Beware, below, there be SPOILERS! Don't read if you haven't watched!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Some examples of lost scenes:

-Dumbledore confronting the Dursley's? Gone.
-The invention of a fight at the burrow, including the destruction of the whole house? Really? Where's Bill & Fleur going to get married next movie? (Oh that's right, in the movies, they AREN'T! Heck, they aren't even in -this- movie!)
-The "Meeting of the Ministers" scene? Gone. Heck there's absolutely NO sign of Scrimgeour -anywhere- in the whole movie!
-Tonks rescuing Harry from the train? Nope, now it's Luna, looking for Wrackspurts, and removing Harry's invisibility cloak with her wand. (As A Deathly Hallow, it should be immune to summoning and/or levitation charms.)
-The slow build up leading to the Quiddich victory kiss? Gone. Now just a "close your eyes" peck in the Room of Requirement, and this was done horribly!!
-The two months of Harry & Ginny dating? Gone.
-Harry breaking up with Ginny to protect her? Gone!

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I have purchased each Harry Potter film on Blu Ray and up until this one was very pleased with both the movies themselves and the hi def renderings and PCM and/or Dolby TrueHD sound. I am sad to say that you CAN believe the negative reviews as far as the absolutely ABYSMAL lighting in this film. It is not a bad transfer, it was due to some pretty dubious choices made by both the director and the Director of Photography and I am sure the production designer had some say in it also. Almost every scene is just way too dark, many times very hard to even SEE what is going on and many other times the images become devoid of color as well.

I watch on a calibrated Pioneer Kuro 50inch plasma display with an Oppo BD player, so I am pretty sure it is not my equipment causing the perceived picture problems. Even after readjusting both the contrast and brightness controls to try and brighten things up, it was pretty useless. The picture information just wasn't there to brighten and only caused it to just basically 'white out'. Phooey!

As for the movie, I am a completest and will risk purchasing the next episode too, but this film was depressing. I really wanted to like it, and about the only things I could find that redeemed this movie for me were the budding romances between some of the main characters. Even the apparent death of Dumbledore seemed anticlimactic to me and Hogwarts itself has never looked a more bleak place.

I know the screenwriter had to try and stick to the story in the book, but many things were left out from the book that would have been INTERESTING and might have explained the story a bit better. Oh well, it is what it is. If I could have one wish for the Harry Potter series, it would be to rehire Chris Columbus to direct and John Williams to score the film. Even adding Williams alone would greatly enhance the production value and my ultimate enjoyment which is why I collect these things to begin with.

Will there be the epic battle in delete scene?
No way, too expensive, that's why they never filmed it. They would never create such an involved, expensive scene and then cut it.
