Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince:
This actually opened Wednesday, and its going to be huge. Â Millions of people will see it, and I’ve seen quite a few good reviews of it already. Â I’ve seen the other ones in the theater, so it is quite likely I’ll make the trek to the local multi-plex in order to plunk down my hard earned dollars for this one as well. Â However, now that I’ve seen how the books end, and knowing that they’ve decided to split the last book into two movies, I’m just not as excited as I once was for these movies. Â Perhaps the movies will end better.
(500) Days of Summer:
Opening in very few theaters and opposite Harry Potter means that this movie will probably not be noticed by many people, and that’s a shame. Â (500) Days of Summer is a brilliant comedy that is not a love story. Â Its a film about a break up, all from the point of view of the guy. Â I was lucky enough to catch a free screening of this film and I absolutely loved it. Â I’d almost consider going and buying tickets for it even if I don’t see it again just to support the filmmakers. Â If this one happens to be showing at a theater near you, I highly recommend it.
