Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince’s DVD Deleted Scenes More Like Novel

In a deleted scene from the sixth Harry Potter film installment, Harry Potter & the Half Blood Prince, released by the WB Italy, audiences get a deeper glimpse into the calm before the storm that is the first Battle of Hogwarts.

The eerie scene, set to an even eerier sounding choir, gives audiences the look and feel of darkness as it descends upon the Hogwarts Castle.

I got goosebumps when the camera panned over to Severus Snape. The lighting effects for those few seconds were amazing. It’s the way Potter should be.

I’ve said before, how much I adored Tom Felton’s performance in the Half-Blood Prince and in this scene, the camera pans above this bed in the Hospital Wing of the castle.

I really wish that they had kept this scene in the film because, as an avid reader of the Harry Potter novels, I felt the sixth film was way to comical.

The seriousness of Voldemort’s return and the allusions to Severus Snape (is he good or is he evil), were completely lost…even at the end.

So, what did you think?

The sixth Potter DVD comes out on December 8, 2009 (two days before my birthday — so Happy Birthday to Me! 🙂 ) and you can get a crazy good deal on it over at Amazon.com.

They are selling a Blue-Ray/DVD/Digtial Copy Widescreen Combo Pack for the price of a regular DVD here.

  1. Hi,
    I like this article but..
    last night i went to the midnight premiere of harry potter and the half blood prince! I was honestly so disappointed! was it just me or did it seem very choppy and for some reason didn't feel like it was a harry potter movie. Don't get me wrong some of the parts in it were either really funny or somewhat scary but i really was not satisfied. I don't know, what did you think?? Am i wrong? Give me your opinions..

  2. I prefer the 5th film to this one. It was far better. You make a valid point. I wrote a review on the movie earlier this year when it came out in theaters here in the US:


    Thanks for commenting.
