Monday Weekend Movie Reviews

I was able to see two movies this past weekend which is quite a feat for my husband and I with four children and limited babysitters! We generally hardly get to one every few months yet we got to see TWO in one weekend!!!

1. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Let me say that I am a firm believer that movies never can do books their due justice. Although I must say I was quite happy with the way the film portrayed this book. They left out alot but did a great job completing the story regardless. This was by far my favorite Harry Movie to date. I loved all of the wand fighting in this one. It is certainly an older, more mature picture for Harry and certainly begins to show the dark times coming. They did an excellent job casting Umbridge who I wanted to slap while reading the book, and the actress brought forth the equal amount of aggravation to the screen making me want to slap her too! :) Luna was also a terrific casting job! She was just as I had pictured her in the book! I don't want to spoil the movie with details for anyone so I will just say it is a must see for any Potter-fan, of course!

2. Transformers

Wicked cool! The effects alone in this movie were outstanding and worth seeing even if you do not like the storyline. I always find that I either love or hate comic book-type movies. Like Spiderman movies which I really liked verses the Hulk which I thought was awful. This movie was fantastic. I was laughing and saying "Holy Crap" the whole time as was the rest of the audience. The fight scenes between the transformers were great and I absolutely loved the way they made them transform. They did an awesome job with this movie! And let's face it - Josh Duhamel not too bad on the eyes!!! LOL I am married to a muscle-car loving guy who the entire walk out of the theater informed me several times that he will be getting that Camaro! Which I would not mind since I am also a muscle-car lover! But definitely a must see movie. One of the best I have seen in awhile....even better than the new Harry in my opinion!
