So Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is good. It's fine. There's nothing wrong with it. I'm mostly guessing here because I can hardly remember it. I liked the books, I know the basic plot of each but struggle to remember details. When it comes to the films I have difficulty telling them apart. I've seen most of them (I think) but in my mind they're just one big blob of Great Hall dinners and trips to Hosgmeade. They've grown all too familiar. I felt like I'd already seen the new film before I'd gone to the cinema. To be fair, it's probably the best one I've seen. It's dark in places and funny in others and there isn't a tedious battle at the end. As usual the supporting cast are more interesting than Potter. It feels like a prelude to the main event and so it concentrates on story rather than action, which suits me fine. Of course, this is all from what I can remember.

I'd be a rubbish film critic. And the title of this post is a spell which removes a person's memory of an event. I researched that.


  1. The Oz books had a Fountain of Oblivion, in which the most heinous criminals were dipped to remove their memories.

  2. Ok then, I used that. Although I'm not heinous or a criminal. Well maybe a bit heinous.

  3. Thanks for checking out my blog and being the first to follow me. I really appreciate it. Take care.
