'Harry Potter' and the Half-Blood Prince' is about as critic-proof as a movie can be (with the possible exception of 'Transformers 2,' of course). Reviewers could call it "'Ernest Scared Stupid' of fantasy films" (apologies to any 'Ernest' fans), and Potterheads would still flock to theaters in droves -- multiple times.

Luckily for fans, the sixth installment in J.K. Rowling's beloved boy wizard saga appears to be, for lack of a better word, spellbinding. Reviews have been nothing short of glowing, and ticket sales are decimating those of the year's biggest earner to date, a little sleeper hit entitled 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.'

Long story short, 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' could be the year's highest-grossing movie AND an Oscar contender (thanks for the 10 Best Pic nominees, Academy!). See what critics are saying about Harry's latest adventure after the jump, then chime in with your thoughts on 'Harry Potter 6.'
