Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)


Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Jim Broadbent, Robbie Coltrane, Michael Gambon, Maggie Smith, Alan Rickman, Bonnie Wright, Julie Walters, David Thewlis

Harry Potter is doing what teenagers do at this age. Falls in love, finds a girlfriend and sometimes he remembers he has to fight the evil Voldemort.

The best book of the series became the worst movie of them all. Teenagers giggling and having romantic thoughts and discussions is not an interesting movie. It is like watching Charmed with lots of visual effects.

Gamer (2009)


Gerard Butler, Amber Valletta, Michael C. Hall, Kyra Sedgwick

In the near future people can control other people in multiplayer online environments. One of those environments has teenagers controlling convicts in deadly battles. The criminal with 30 fights under his belt is set free.

Let me think! Controlling other people equals slavery. Making them having sex while you are watching equals pornography and prostitution. Making them kill other people equals murder. What a world to live in. Where are human rights and ideals in this world?

Hiring people to be controlled in those environments means too many salaries. Making them having sex uncontrollably means STDs. Having too many people being killed? Less workforce. Have you ever though of 3D models? They are cheap, they are customizable, they never get old, they have no needs, no salary and they never die unless you erase them.

Other than that “Gamer” is one of the movies that has all the potential to be one of the good ones, but something you cannot figure out is holding it back.I cannot explain what has gone wrong, because I like the actors, it has some nice combat scenes, Michael C. Hall is wonderful, but overall I did not like it. Just wait for the DVD to come out if you haven’ t seen it already.
