Welcome to the Modern Typewriter, a daily blog to discuss topics that can’t be answered easily, or are just some fun topics! Today is July 16th, 2009, I’m Royce, and I’m here to talk about the new movie, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
“We’re die-hard Harry Potter fans. Once we discovered months and months ago that Harry Potter number 6 was coming out, we decided we were going on the day it would come out. And we did. It was probably the best Harry Potter movie of them all so far…” Says Rochester, a writer at the Modern Typewriter.

As Harry begins his sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he soon finds an Advanced Potions book that says: “This is the property of the Half-Blood Prince.” The book not only teaches advanced potion-making skills, but throughout the book, it is edited with secrets to certain potions, as well as it includes spells. He soon learns the book holds very dangerous secrets. Other than the book, he learns that teenagers flirt, fight, and begin to fall in love. This is evident through the relationship between Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, when the friendship soon elevates to more than friends. This is also seen between the relationship of Ginny Weasley and the main character himself, Harry Potter. Their friendship soon elevates. Harry is prepared by Headmaster Albus Dumbledore that he will need to find Horcruxes and destroy them in order to kill Lord Voldemort. He takes off with Dumbledore and searches a massive cave for one of the first Horcruxes Voldemort left behind, but it only turns out to be a fake one that the previous searcher left. Inside of the Horcrux was a note signed R.A.B. Harry does not know who R.A.B. is and will later find out in the seventh and final book.
“The movie is definitely different from the others, but in a good way. It is more comical, I laughed many times. It had a bit of teen romance, which was fairly entertaining to watch. I overall liked the movie a lot and would rate it four stars out of five.” Says Cody, another writer.
“Definitely the best of all of the Harry Potter movies. You can tell thoroughly that Draco Malfoy is trying his hardest to be a Death Eater, but you can tell that he feels trapped and sort of forced to become one out of fear.” Karina says, another writer.
“I loved the movie. It was entertaining, funny, adventurous, and it had many other qualities. I would give it five out of five stars. It is definitely one of my favorite movies now.” Jaycee said, a writer at the Modern Typewriter.
Rumor has it that the seventh and final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, will be split up into two movies to cover the entire book and to detail it more.
