I Can't Wait to See Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

We rarely watch movies in theaters these days but Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is one film we're planning to see on the big screen.

Although we have the books, it's not just the story that we're after. I, for one, am keen on seeing how the stars of the Harry Potter series have grown. When we first saw them, Daniel Radcliffe (Harry) was 11, Emma Watson (Hermione) was 10 and
Rupert Grint (Ron) was 12. They grew up while filming the series and we watched them go from kids to adolescents to older teens. They are now nine years older and we somehow feel a kinship with them, as if they were our friends' kids.

Emma Watson had a wardrobe malfunction in the recent premiere of the film in London. She survived it with class and we can't help hoping that she'll never lose her wholesome self.

It will be a bittersweet moment when we get to see the final Harry Potter film in 2011 but we will also be looking forward to the next steps in the careers of its young stars.

I'm just wondering if this series is still suitable for children under the age of 7. I'm having a dilemma If I'll let my kids, ages 4 and 6, to watch it, because it seems the movie is getting darker and mature.

I'm not quite sure about that either. My friend who has seen the movie in the US says it's full of raging teen hormones although I'm sure they keep it wholesome =D.

Sometimes the Harry Potter films can be quite scary for very young kids, though. Maybe you can preview the previous film on DVD and see their reaction to it? Just remember that it's much scarier in a dark theater with dolby sound.

Yes, the Potter gang has all grown up, including Emma Watson, who has become quite the stunning young woman. "Half-Blood Prince" was entertaining, but not riveting. Although, diehard Potter fans will nonetheless find it impossible to avoid the movie. I found a lot of it to be much the same as previous movies within the genre.
