Harry Potter

We took Henry to see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix yesterday. I’m not a big HP fan (I couldn’t make it past the first four books), but Dan and Henry are, and I think they both liked it pretty well. I was most interested in the costuming. Umbridge’s tidy little pink early-1960s-inspired suits were great, plus there were lots of really neat knitted garments to examine. I wish I could have gotten a better look at the Weasleys’ Christmas scarves. Umbridge wore a little pink cardigan with a nice diamond lace pattern, and the kids wore lots of interesting hats and sweaters as well. Other than that, the movie seemed about the same as all the others. Harry is anguished, people keep things from him, there’s a lot of Menacing and Sinister Moodiness. There was a good wizard fight at the end, and, to quote Mike Nelson — “When wizards fight, who wins? The American viewing public!”
