Harry Potter 6 was (for me) better than 5. But not as good as 3 or 4. If you are a fan you've got to see it in the theatre, and soon, before they move it over to one of the smaller screens.

That;s weird, coz the 6th book was easily the best of the 7. I don't know how they could screw it even with modifed story. Coz really, Harry Potter is about Harry, Voldemort and Snape. The Half Blood prince focuses on Voldemort and Snape, so it should be the deepest of the movies.

Personally, this movie was where I really missed Richard Harris. The chemistry between the two couples (Ron/Hermione and Harry/Ginny) just didn't feel right. The kid playing the young Tom Riddell was nicely creepy, and Tom Felton (Draco) looked like he was in his 30s -- intentionally, I thing, given the weight of his "assignment".

Anyhow, I don't want to "crap" all over this movie. Like I said, it was better (IMO) than the previous one, but my favorites are still 1, 4 and 3 (in that order).

Just thought I'd bring this back up. Some movies ive watched:

Funny People- Awesome....for the first hour. the rest is chick flick quality BS.

Hangover- Amazing, every moment was enjoyable.

Fired Up- Funny, worth seeing for sure.

Harry Potter 6- Meh, boring, and hardly worth the price of admission

Borat Bruno- Terrible. Mildly funny, but stupid as hell. Don't bother seeing it.

There's a movie called DIstrict 9 out there, I'd recommend it to everyone. Best movie of the year to date.

I find the Hmong actors to have been subpar. But other than that, phenomenal movie. Clint was great, and he is a first class director.

An underrated movie I love, that has quite a cult following is one I quoted on another thread the other day, called Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. It stars Robert Downey Jr, Val Kilmer and Michelle Monaghan. It's hilarious, and really well acted and directed. RDJ is the man.

I just got Gran Turino on Blueray, but haven't had time to watch it yet. Now, I want to see it a little bit more

GT was a really good movie. I also really liked Million Dollar Baby... so maybe I like Eastwood's directorial movies?

KK,BB also a really good movie.

Great movie! Not really something I'd have to see on Bluray, though.

The Unforgiven has to be my favorite Eastwood movie. Stared, wrote, and directed. Brilliant.

HP6 was better than 5, but not as good as I'd hoped. Saw it in the theatre with the boys.

District 9 got very favorable reviews -- 9 out of 10 stars in one place. The director (Neil Blomkamp) was originally pushed by Jackson to direct Halo, but the studio balked at it. This story is also written by Blomkamp anb he made a short film of it, as well.

Murder in the First is still my favorite movie of all time.

I am an Alcatraz fan though and know pretty much everything there is to know about it.

Until I have a system that supports the 7.1 format, I will be with out Blu-ray. No point. I'm sure the picture looks great but, IMO, the music and overall sound of a good movie is paramount.

District 9 does look good, saw the trailer last night. Moon, also looks promising.

I've seen MOon. If you're in the 2001: Space Odysesy fanbase, you will enjoy. Otherwise, don't bother.

Is it out already, or was it an internet grab?

I've watched it at Empire 7 (Albert street). 2 weeks ago. I think they showed it for 3 weeks only, as I don't see it listed anymore. It was on a small screen though.
