HP & the Order of the Pheonix

Heh. We look like total dorks. At least the movie was cool. We saw it on IMAX at the Lincoln Center AMC and wow! The screen had to be like 5 stories high, meaning we were the size of Harry's wand or possibly Hagrid's nose hair.

If you can see this movie in an IMAX, it is so worth the 16+ bucks. The fight scenes are incredible and almost scary. Yeah, speaking of scary, this flick was WAY more frightening! Good gosh, I was tense throughout most of the movie.

As far as the film itself goes, I don't want to give anything away. I will say that the flick definitely won't mean as much to you if you haven't read the book. In fact, you may not even get it. And the movie takes some interesting book liberties, of course. But over all, I can say that this was my favorite of the 5. I think the warmth in the characterization's developed really moved me. It was the emotion that the 3rd movie lacked - the friendship and loyalty between Harry and Sirius Black that is so entrenched in the third book (but was missing in the 5th book). I know that the critics weren't fond of this 5th flick, but this one rubbed me the right way.
