Order of the Phoenix
Friday we gathered a group of friends and family and hit the Rave Theater for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Expectations were high and we weren't disappointed...it was GREAT. The best yet, to to this reviewer. Of course, one has to exclude the first film--that introduced the characters and location to us, that really succeeded in "selling" the magic of Harry Potter. But after the (slight) disappointment of the fourth film, this one more than makes up for it. It's exciting and funny and thoughtful and action-packed, and really succeeds in distilling most of the important stuff from the lloonngg book into the shortest HP movie of all. I want to see it again!
