50 Word Review: Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince

First let me say I wish I could give myself more than 50 words for this review...but hey if I'm going to stick with this silly 50 word thing, this will be the review challenge of all challenges.

Like great chocolate, the film is dark, rich and fulfilling. It’s a clear contender for best in the series with beautiful cinematography, dazzling special effects, heart-tugging emotion and laugh out loud moments. Readers will notice omissions from the book with great additions that broaden the Potter world outside of Hogwarts.

15 more words:
The film forgoes the importance of the title but you’ll be too intrigued to care.

"Where The Wild Things Are" trailer

"Where The Wild Things Are" is a classic children's book with some very non-child like sentiments; kinda like Harry Potter(abused child living in a closet?? whoa!). The book FINALLY got a film version, hobbled through pre-production, stalled during production and languished through post-production...and now extremely talented director Spike Jonze gets to show off his loving monsters that help a boy deal with the world.

Take a look at the trailer: Get Wild
