Harry Potter 6 – The Funniest Potter Film of All

Ron and HermioneHoly cow. I don’t think Harry Potter has ever made me laugh as hard as I did in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. From Ron’s love-drunk behavior to Harry’s uncharacteristicly silly demeanor after drinking the luck potion, I nearly peed my pants.

This was easily the best Harry Potter film so far. The teens were growing and maturing, falling in love and – if I may say so myself – looking fabulous. Hermione (Emma Watson) has turned into a beauty queen. And even though that’s not how she’s described in the book, she’s the perfect actress for the onscreen adaptation. And Ron (Rupert Grint)…wow. Talk about buffing up. The once awkward-looking redhead has transformed into quite the looker!Ginny and Harry

The novel Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was fabulous. But it always felt like it was a continuation of the previous novel, or a bridge to¬†The Deathly Hallows. On it’s own, it doesn’t have much of a storyline. The movie reflected that, but in a good way. It doesn’t waste time with introductions or explanations or anything to get the fans caught up. (I mean, by now, shouldn’t fans have a good understand of who’s who and what’s what?) It dives right into the plot which is so rich with action. One minute your laughing, the next your ready to pound Malfoy into the ground, then your grinning, laughing again, furious, fearful, and finally teary-eyed. But you’ll walk out of their wishing you could park your but right back in that chair and stay for the next showing. It’s that good.
