<em>Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince; The Cove; Mystery Science Theater 3000: XVI</em>

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
(Warner Home Video, $28.98)
Though it came out a full two years after The Order of the Phoenix, the sixth film in the Harry Potter series was “worth the wait,” said the Associated Press. Daniel Radcliffe and his companions now “live and breathe” their roles, and the “splendid” visual fireworks are better than ever.

The Cove
(Lions Gate, $27.98)
Director Louie Psihoyos’ documentary about dolphin poaching in a Japanese cove is compelling from start to finish, said New York. It plays like a “slick caper,” while thoroughly exposing the often disastrous results of seizing dolphins to be kept in captivity.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: XVI
(Shout! Factory, $64.99)
These episodes of the cult TV show will inspire 1990s nostalgia, said The Onion. The premise—a man and two robots, forced to watch bad movies, decide to make fun of them—is silly. The resulting wisecracks are hilarious. The four-episode set comes with an action figure of one of the robots, Crow.
