Today was Harry Potter film discussion Number 6 with Rachel, Jeremy and Abby. Given the character development, and many changes from the book, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince prompted some particularly interesting discussion. It was curious how we all felt it was far from a terrible film – though we varied as to how much we actually liked it – yet the majority of observations seemed to be negative (e.g. how the book handled most things so much better).
I unfortunately experienced some technical difficulties: I wanted to try out my shiny new webcam, but it seemed my laptop couldn’t quite handle it in combination with Google Hangouts – after losing the connection altogether for a minute, I meekly went back to my old setup.
We’ll be covering Deathly Hallows Part 1 on Saturday 8th October!
