Like ice in a Frappuccino, these are the Days of our Wentworth…
Wentworth goes to the movies to see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
[Went enters some theater in Dallas in his bucket hat, sweater over one shoulder cuz hell, it might be cold in there and a backpack full of…something.]
Went thinking: OK, now if I can just manage to find one seat…yes! Man, I love Harry Potter. I’m so happy I used Fandango last week; This midnight show looks sold out.
[Went takes a seat in the middle of a row towards the back of the theater and plays with his new iPhone while he waits. He surfs to the chatbox.]
Went thinking: WFW is watching Harry Potter right now too! What are the odds! I really need to marry that girl…Oh great the movie is starting.
Went watches the movie. Some thoughts:
Well, they changed the beginning, but that’s to be expected. Why the hell don’t the Dementors have on their hooded cloaks? This isn’t starting off well.
Harry is so unhappy. Good display of angst there boy!
Headquarters is great! Nice set design! There’s Sirius! Ahahaha, Kreacher…
Luna and Umbridge were well cast. Someone is good at their job. I want more Tonks.
Hermione is hot and so is Malfoy. Did I just think that? Maybe Perez was right…
Could the twins be any funnier? Always the best part of a Potter film.
Wow look at Ginny. She’s so pretty. Ron is looking fit. Have these kids been working out?
Whoa Harry and Cho makeout action! They did a very good job with kissing like adolescents would…Unless of course that’s how they really kiss, in which case I take back my praise.
Very cute scene with the big 3. They are so cute.
Awwww Neville. *tearing up*
Dammit, dammit, dammit. They changed my favorite part of the book! *gets an instant headache* I wonder if others would follow if I throw this pan full of baked ziti at the screen. What? Why do you think my backpack is so big?
[after scene is over] OK well, maybe I can live with this.
Dude, Luna completely rocks.
They skipped the very cool rooms in the Ministry of Magic but then the movie would be 3 hours I guess, not that a REAL fan would mind the length.
OK, now this is ridiculous. Last movie a big to do was made out of the death in that installment and in this one…Nothing? This character was important to Harry and important to me; He deserved more attention! This shit sucks. I want my fucking money back. *pretty crying, on the inside*
Helena Bonham Carter is hot even with yellowing teeth and unkempt hair playing an insane homicidal witch. I’d hit that.
The fight scene was very well done. I love the effects.
Aha! Dumbledore! Kick Volemort’s Ass! This new Dumbledore is growing on me, finally. Hmmm, something should have happened now that didn’t…Oh well, that probably would have cost a lot to do.
“You’ll never know love, you’ll never know friendship…” Well that’s harsh. Poor Voldemort! *rolling eyes* Like an evil wizard with underlings and that much power needs friends…
OK so it doesn’t really pay to read the book first does it? *chuckle* I still liked it. It was the most like Prisoner of Azkaban to date, which was, the best one.
B+ Well cast, well acted, true to the feel of the book…Well except that death. Completely disappointing that it didn’t get more time when I watched two kids suck face for 10 minutes. *scowls*
[Went leaves the theater.]
Went thinking: I wish I had someone to call to talk about this with. I could call WFW, but calling a fan would probably be bad form. Still, She’s awake and all. Oh nevermind. I wonder if it’s too late to call Kali…
