Written by Oscar nominee Steve Kloves ( Wonder Boys ) Cinematography by 2 time Oscar nominee Bruno Dellonnel ( A Very Long Engagement, Amelie ) Editing by Emmy nominee Mark Day ( Sex Traffic ) Original music by Nicholas Hooper ( Order Of The Phoenix )

In the sixth incarnation of the series, Harry discovers a book with the words written on it " This book of The Half Blood Prince " and begins to even dig up more knowledge of Lord Voldemort's past. Some early reviews are claiming it to be the best Potter film yet.

Rated PG-13 For Scary images, some violence, language and mild sensuality.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
