Harry Potter - The Order of the Phoenix

Like AIDs before it, Harry Potter Mania is leaving a trail of dead homosexuals and intravenous drug users in it's wake. Not really of course and we love everybody equally here at Gimcrack Solarium but today did see the release of the fifth Potter movie The Order of the Phoenix. We tried to get tickets for the preview this morning but it turns out you have to book these things in advance and not just arrive dressed as 90's rap sensation the Outhere Brothers. We thought about just making up a review without seeing the film but felt that would be a tad unfair. Having never seen any of the movies, let alone read any of the books we probably wouldn't have been the best people for the job. Luckily for us there's about 13 million reviewers over on who have. Heres some choice quotes, enjoy!

note: if you dont want to find out that a dementor gets stabbed in the eye-hole don't read on

I've never cheered so much during a Potter movie . . . and I've certainly never cried so much... I was sobbing. Literally sobbing in my seat. Everyone sitting next to me was crying as well, and I was crying so hard that I had to take off my glasses because I couldn't see.

Stupefied!!! Three Words- Potter 5 is BEST
It have been AMESOME...MOVIE IS PACED FAST AT CLIMAX. Yeah. That was bad...If you are planning to go to watch any other film, I must suggest you if you miss it than you'll be the most unlucky person.

Firstly, Harry stabbed the dementor in the eye with his wand! What?!

Poking a dementor in the eye when it is choking you? Seriously now

whoever decided that Grawp should look like a 20' middle-aged man with Down's Syndrome should be tortured for the rest of their advice is to stick to the book, even Mel Gibson did that...

The scriptwriter for this movie should be made to cut a switch for himself to be whipped with.

Author: pip from United States {this poor imdb user had to resort to self-harm}:
there is something about Emma Thompson where every time she cries in a movie, I start tearing up myself.
