Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

The Potter movies are getting better and better F/X, which is good since, as the books are getting longer, the movies are reducing the stories to action plot points. This one deals with the boy wizard teaching his friends to defend themselves against evil wizards despite the government’s refusal to acknowledge a threat. Why is it that children’s literature is making more of a statement about government denial than newspapers? A fun movie for those that read the books or not, and introduces us to the delightful Evanna Lynch as Luna Lovegood, who is actually better utilized in the movies than books.
