Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: The IMAX 3D Experience

Harry Potter and the Order of the PhoenixI went to see the latest Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, (the 5th) the other day. I decided to go see it in IMAX, since the last 20 minutes or so were in 3D.

The movie was actually pretty good. Wasn’t exactly the same as the Book, but it was pretty close. Some nice special effects in there too. In this movie, you really notice how much older the main actors and actresses have been. In real life, the dude who plays Harry Potter is 18, in this movie, he’s supposed to be 15. By the time they do the 7th (and last) movie, he’ll be like 20 or 21. But, Harry is only 17 in the 7th book.

The 3D wasn’t exactly as good as I thought it was going to be. They really only took advantage of the 3D in a little bit of the 20 minutes. Like, when they were flying on a broom towards you (wasn’t it supposed to be on those bird-like things that only people who have seen death can see?). They should’ve made it so spells and stuff were flying at you… Now, that would’ve been cool. It seems like the 3D was more of an after-thought.

But, seeing it in IMAX was pretty cool. Movies are usually better on an 8 story tall (and even wider) screen, 12 000 watts of sound and on Canadian technology (yes, IMAX is Canadian 😀 ). 😉

Overall, it was a great movie!

    On Regis and Kelly they main actor said they were rapping up the last movie just now. My guess is we will see the next two pretty quick.

    They should be close to wrapping up the 6th movie. But, they couldn’t be wrapping up the last movie, as the book was only released a few weeks ago.

    The Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (6th) movie is being released on November 21, 2008. They haven’t released a release date for the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (7th and last) movie yet. I’m guessing in November of 2009 or June of 2010.
