Harry Potter and the Half-Assed Blogger

are we sure Ron wasn't supposed to go to a "special" magic school?

So while you were spending Friday evening watching this video of a hammer dancing Darth Vader. I ventured out to the local theater and caught a showing of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Turns out it's a really good movie. Now I know I'll get my nerd card pulled for admitting this, but I haven't read any of the Harry Potter books. But I have seen all the movies and this was definitely one of the better ones. The last movie was kinda dull, and at the end of it I had a billion questions for my wife (who has read all the books). I'm not a big fan of that, it supposed to be her asking me all the questions. I'm the nerd in this relationship damn it!

This one the plot was more or less self contained, it was easy to follow and the dialogue was pretty well written. I remember laughing plenty of times and for half a second I almost cared about the silly Ron/Hermoine/other girl, love triangle. Also unlike the order of the Phoenix the action scenes were kinda fantastic. I mean as fantastic as you can expect when you're dealing with a movie about teenage wizards instead of robocops or zombies.

Oh yeah, as long as we're talking movies, looks like that Voltron movie everyone has been demanding is finally going to be made. Now if you'll excuse me I need to hop in my time machine and let the 8 year old me know, he'll be so happy.
