Harry Potter is growing up and his arch nemesis, Voldemort, is getting ready to attack. Dark magic, traitors and death make this one of the darkest Harry Potter flicks yet. Find out if it's worth checking out with Kidzworld's review.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - He's Baaack

Summer vacation hasn't exactly been as relaxing for Harry Potter as most kids. He's been attacked by dementors, he's threatened with expulsion from Hogwarts, he sees Voldemort every time he closes his eyes and the worst part is the Ministry of Magic doesn't believe him that the dark lord is back!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - Follow the Leader

As if having the most powerful dark wizard after you isn't bad enough, the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, Dolores Umbridge, is pushing Ministry of Magic propaganda by denying the existence of Voldemort. She's also forbidden students from learning magic to protect themselves. So, Ron and Hermoine convince Harry to rally the troops and take training into their own hands.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - Fight to the Finish

Massive battles against powerful villains is never an easy task - but Harry is tired of being pushed around by He Who Shall Not Be Named. He's willing to risk everything to ensure the safety of those he loves, like his BFF's Ron and Hermoine, his godfather Sirius Black and - of course - his new love interest Cho Chang. Will Harry prevail? Or will Voldemort be too much for him to handle?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - DVD Features

DVD bonus features are always a huge part of this magical series, and the second disc of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix doesn't disappoint. You'll find nine extra scenes, two featurettes and an interactive segment to help pass the time before Harry's next adventure hits theaters. The first featurette follows Natalia Tena, who plays Tonks, through a typical day on set. The second is almost a movie itself! The Hidden Secrets of Harry Potter is 43 minutes of special footage and cast and crew commentary from the entire series. Finally, Harry Potter: The Magic of Editing, gives you an introduction to film editing and then lets you edit your very own scene. The Harry Potter phenomenon marches on with this two disc DVD. You can read the book, watch the movie, get behind the scenes, or play filmmaker yourself! What could be better?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - Bottom Line

The Order of the Phoenix is an important part of the bigger Harry Potter picture but as a stand alone film it isn't the best one. But even though it's not as action-packed or suspenseful as previous movies, doesn't mean it's not worth checking out. Order of the Phoenix will definitely leave you craving more of the legendary wizard - only a year and a half to wait for the next installment!

So even though Tangled was really funny i will always pick Brave. That's a really good point ^-^ I still like Tangled better. The plot made more sense and was better written (in my opinion though) I thought the humor was better as well; definitely a lot less crude! Also, the lack of songs in Brave bummed me out... it is a Disney Princess Movie :/ (Don't argue that it's Pixar!) Wait you think because it's a Disney movie there has to be singing!? Really that's dumb. Ok that Iis just my opinion. But really that's dumb.
