Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince

The Film starts with all kinds of mayhem bridges falling down, Muggles getting scared.

Death Eaters are everywhere aswell. Then Lord Voldemort appears in the sky, While Harry is sitting in a cafe on a Tube station trying to get a date with a girl who works there. Then out of nowhere Dumbledore appears and eventually sends Harry to the Weasley House where Hermione is already. Ron and Hermione both tell Harry that their Parents dont want them going back to Hogwarts and it’s time Dumbledore retired.

Anyways they do go to Hogwarts and it appears that Malfoy is a death eater now aswell (No surprise their really). Anyways¬† Harry goes to see Dumbledore and see’s Dumbledores memory of when he first met Voldemort it turned out Voldemort was in a childrens home coz his parents didnt want him coz he did weird stuff like start fires with just his mind and that.¬† In between all this their is the teen angst of love Ron and Hermione and Harry and Ginnie Weasley.

After a while though Dumbledore tells Harry that Voldemort has horcruxes that keep his soul alive so if he dies he doesnt he just finds a horcrux and to defeat Voldemort they have to find the Horcruxes and smash them up. So Dumbledore and Harry set off to find them, They end up in a cave and have to sail across a lake. Dumbledore tells Harry that no matter what he has to make Dumbledore drink the liquid so Dumbledore starts drinking it then wants to stop. Harry makes him carry on though so he finishes it and Harry gets the Horcrux. Then they set off back to Hogwarts when they arrive their Dumbledore then tells Harry to go get Snape. So Harry goes then he hears voices so he just hides. The voice turned out to belong to Malfoy who was threatening to kill Dumbledore. Dumbledore said he couldnt go through it.

Then Snape comes along see’s Harry, Dmubledore,Malfoy and Death eaters. Then one of them dies…

All in all a very good film with great special effects although my Daughter and I have been discussing which is better film or books i say book she said movie although she hasnt read the books lol.

The return of Whitney Houston

Apparently Whitney Houston is planning a comeback, with a new album in early september (at least it is scheduled to be released September 2nd here is Sweden.

Today one of our online newspapers offered a free download of a single from that album, the title track “I Look To You“. It might not be as strong as some of the ones from her glory days, but her voice has survived the years well. The song is a soft ballad.

Judging from this one song the upcoming album is definitely worth checking out when it is released.
