Harry Potter and the Best-Reviewed Movie of the Year

With a tomatometer at 98%, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince stands as the best-reviewed film of the year in wide release. Compare that to the first five films, (Sorcerer's Stone was 78%, Chamber of Secrets was 82%, Prisoner of Azkaban was 89%, Goblet of Fire was 88%, and Order of the Phoenix was the lowest, at 77%) this is the highest-rated Potter film of the sex installments.

Add to it, Half-Blood Prince is already generating form the critics Oscar buzz in the form of the film's director of photography Bruno Delbonne (Amelie and A Very Long Engagement) and newcomer to the series, Jim Broadbent (Oscar-winner for Best Supporting Actor in Iris, 2001) playing the role of Hogwarts' new Potions professor, Horace Slughorn, among other categories.

Yeah, i'm a Potter nerd, the same way the Count goes gaga for 007. Bottom line: Can't wait for this new installment, and you can bet your ass i'll be there at midnight.

Well Either the Harry Potter people paid more money this time to the reviewers or more likely the first person who actually watched it and wrote a review loved it so much that every other critic got to work right away re-writing what that person had written.

Now in now way am I suggesting it's a bad movie I haven't saw it and do not know. It might honestly be that damned good. I am saying don't trust those lazy sons a bitch critics as far as you can throw them. :)
