film review: harry potter & the half-blood prince

The Potter series continues to astonish with its consistently high quality. But I'll say this: it helps to go into the movie with some distance from the book. I suspect that anyone flush with all the book details will be distracted by the differences between book and film. As it happens, it's been a year since I've read the book. With enough detachment, it was possible to enjoy the movie as a movie without it clashing with what I remember reading.

A Potent Mix of Magic, Love, Fear, and Terror in Half-Blood Prince
