David Yates really is a hero. He was chosen to direct Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and did an amazing job. he was then asked back to direct Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, becoming only the second director in the franchise to do more than one film.

Yes, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is the best Harry Potter film, and also one of my favourite films in years. Click to read more

The penultimate chapter in the Harry Potter¬†series has arrived. It’s time to talk about J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I’d like to warn anyone who might read this review that there will be SPOILERS. But not just spoilers for Half-Blood Prince. I fully expect that anyone reading this already knows what transpires between Snape and Dumbledore. No, this review will contain SPOILERS for¬†Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Again, I imagine most people reading this review have already read the entire book series, but there may be a few of you who have only seen the films, in which case I’d be giving away events that take place in Deathly Hallows Part 2.
