Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince:
This actually opened Wednesday, and its going to be huge. Millions of people will see it, and I’ve seen quite a few good reviews of it already. 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. 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. 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. (500) Days of Summer is a brilliant comedy that is not a love story. Its a film about a break up, all from the point of view of the guy. I was lucky enough to catch a free screening of this film and I absolutely loved it. I’d almost consider going and buying tickets for it even if I don’t see it again just to support the filmmakers. If this one happens to be showing at a theater near you, I highly recommend it.
