Exciting fifth movie finds Harry angry, brooding.
The long-awaited finale to the biggest (in every sense) publishing phenomenon in history crashes to a thunderous ending (don't worry, no spoilers here). Bringing the series total up to around 4,100 pages, Book 7 in the saga of the Boy Who Lived will not disappoint.
Harry's summer break with the Dursley's is more wretched than usual in HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX, the fifth installment in the most popular book series of all time. Not only are the Dursleys as despicable as ever (though Rowling drops a few intriguing hints that there may be more to Aunt Petunia than meets the eye), but dark forces are reaching out for Harry even in Little Whinging, the drab suburb that had seemed too ordinary for magic.
A deadly monster is prowling the halls of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. During his second year there, Harry again confronts evil when students are turned to stone and his best friend's little sister disappears. Though she follows the formula of the first book, Rowling keeps readers caught in her magic spell with twists, turns, and nonstop excitement.
Though too young at 14, wizard-in-training Harry Potter is mysteriously entered in the dangerous Triwizard Tournament. The long-awaited fourth installment in this historic series justifies every bit of the hype. Despite the book's length, the battle between Harry and his nemesis, the evil Lord Voldemort, keeps readers excitedly plowing on for hours through thrills, complex issues, and a richly imaginative vision.
Fantastic, but kids are older, themes are darker.
First Potter movie is a magical ride but also intense.
Excellent, but the PG-13 is accurate.
Action- and creature-packed Potter sequel.
Voldemort and his followers, the Death Eaters, are out in the open now, so much so that Rufus Scrimgeour, the new Minister of Magic, feels it necessary to inform the muggle Prime Minister. Snape is up to no good, Draco has been given an assignment by the Dark Lord, and and a net of security has dropped on Hogwarts. Deaths, disappearances, and destruction increase as Harry's penultimate year at Hogwarts begins.
