Half Blood Prince...

Bruno Delbonnel shot Amelie, Paris je t'aime, A Very Long Engagement... Stuart Craig was the production designer on The Elephant Man, Gandhi, Chaplin, The English Patient... IMDB lists 484 arists under visual effects alone led by supervisors who have worked on the most important visual effects heavy films of the last two decades... The story itself is one of the most read pieces of contemporary pop literature... what does the director do exactly in a studio film? Half Blood Prince... The trailers look amazing!

What has amazed me and pained me all these years is how the most big budgeted films of Bollywood or the most acclaimed artistic films of our country cannot compare to the art and cinematic design of an average episode of one of their average TV shows...
