Harry Potter movie

Last night I went to see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I was off work by 6pm last night and hardly knew what to do with myself. Sarah wasn't home and I wasn't feeling really socialable, so I decided to go to the movies alone. I have never felt strange about going to the movies or to dinner alone. I went to the 7:15pm showing at the Riverwoods. It was a pretty good movie. Of course, they left a lot of details from the book out. Had they tried to include everything, the movie would have been four hours long. Overall, I thought it was well done and would give it three and a half stars. Be warned, it is darker than the fourth film. Despite the darker tone, I would still recommend it.

I would give it a 6 out of 10--barely more than not liking it. That might change as I view it again with a different view going into it. There were too many things left out or different from the book--specifically the lack of talk of Quidditch and the ending, respectfully. Again, this rating may change after another viewing, but for now I am dissapointed.

Each time a new one comes out I'm excited to see it, then disappointed by how different it is from the book. We'll definitely see this one soon.
