Academy Award® Nominated: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Ensemble post by: Audiegrl, Geot, and BuellBoy


In the sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft, and in both wizard and muggle worlds Lord Voldemort and his henchmen are increasingly active. With vacancies to fill at Hogwarts, Professor Dumbledore persuades Horace Slughorn, back from retirement to become the potions teacher, while Professor Snape receives long awaited news. Harry Potter, together with Dumbledore, must face treacherous tasks to defeat his evil nemesis.

Dumbledore is teaching Harry Potter about Tom Riddle a.k.a. Voldemort, and he uses the memories of Slughorn to understand Voldemort. Meanwhile, Harry Potter finds a book that belonged to a mysterious Half-Blood Prince that he uses in Slughorn’s classes.

44D’s Reviews

Although it took a great deal patience and sacrifice (LOL), I waited to read the Harry Potter series until J.K. Rowlings published the seventh and final book in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” in 2007. It was worth the wait… Now I’m able to get my HP fix each year when a new movie comes out. What on earth am I going to do when the movies are over??? Seriously, if you love Harry Potter, you’ll enjoy the movie as well. 😉

Did You Know?

Jessie Cave beat over 7000 girls to win the role of Lavender Brown, Ron’s “love-interest” from the book.

Quidditch at Hogwarts makes a grand (and much publicized) return, after being completely absent since the fourth installment. A full game of Quidditch has in fact not been featured since the 2nd film.

Dame Maggie Smith completed filming this film whilst undergoing radio-therapy as treatment for breast cancer.

The original script included all of Dumbledore’s memories about Voldemort as outlined in the source novel, but the director insisted on trimming them down as, according to Steve Kloves, “..he wanted to showcase Voldemort’s rise without getting overly involved with his past as Riddle.”
