    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince [26]

    Movie Reviews
    Since our last outing with Harry Potter and the Order Of The Phoenix, David Yates has improved his directing skills quite a bit. This movie did not feel as rushed as the previous installment. The characters are much happier and there is less teen angst. I could understand Rupert Grint as Ron much better. I think that it is back on track and I cannot wait for the final two installments. 

    One note of interest is that currently the most trafficked page here at Group29 was my 2005 post- Half Blood Prince book read analysis:Harry Potter is the sixth horcrux, RAB is Regulus Black. Four years later it turns out that the final story is as complex as the discussion that took place. It is seeing a level of hits not seen since 2005. Was Harry a Horcrux? Yes. Was Nagini also a Horcrux? Yes as well as it turns out. In the end, Voldemort had eight pieces of soul flying around, but only six horcruxes at any one time. The Wikipedia article handles it quite concisely.

    Voldemorts creation of Horcruxes is central to the later storyline of the Harry Potter novels. As the number seven is a powerful, mystical number in the world of Harry Potter, Voldemort intended to split his soul into that many pieces, with six in Horcruxes and the last reposing within his body.[9] When Voldemort attacked the Potter family, he had been intending to make his sixth and final Horcrux with the death of "The Chosen One." Despite his defeat, he actually succeeded in doing so: when his body was destroyed by the rebounded Killing Curse, a piece of his soul was spelled off and attached itself to the only living thing remaining in the room—Harry Potter—effectively making The Boy Who Lived a sixth Horcrux. Voldemort, unaware of this, "completed" his collection of Horcruxes by turning his snake Nagini into one, thus fragmenting his soul into a total of eight (counting the one residing in his own body), not seven, pieces. Complicating things even further, only six Horcruxes ever existed at any one time in the series: by the time Nagini had been made a Horcrux, one of the original Horcruxes had already been destroyed.
