Harry Potter 5’, $330M in 5 days

I am really a fan of the Harry Potter movies. So, I will make it a point to watch the movie on the premiere day.But to be honest, I have read just 2 books.

So anyway I rushed to the theater this weekend to watch Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I was with a close friend who had read the book of this sequel. She's like telling stories in advance! (hehehe) I don't know but I find the first a little B-O-R-I-N-G. I know it does explain the story but I think they could have done better by adding a bit of action than just plain story-telling. The only two things that woke me up were these funny lines:

1.) One, was when Harry Potter after kissing the girl described the kiss as "It was wet..." lol...
2.) When Dumbledore disappeared magically with his phoenix, one of the wizards said... "Dumbledore's Got Style". This was really funny

Anyway the visual effects were stunning. I heard that it was good to watch it in iMax. The fight between Dumbledore and Voldemort is priceless... It really pulled off most of the boring parts of the film. My rating would be an 8/10 (if not because of the beautiful fight scene.
