My Favorite Scene: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007) “Sirius Fades to Black and Dumbledore vs. Voldemort”

With the triumphant return of The Wizarding World in the wake of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (out TODAY on Blu Ray), we’re running back through the Harry Potter series, examining the best of each in one “My Favorite Scene” column a month.  This month the wizarding war begins in earnest with the fifth entry: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: the only film in the series I felt was actually better than Rowling’s book.

In Theaters This Week (3/3/2017): Logan, The Shack, Before I Fall

The Shack, Octavia Spencer, Sam Worthington

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  March 3rd begins the biggest blockbuster loaded March in movie history with a huge film opening every week the next five weeks.  Three movies open wide, but Hugh Jackman’s final bow as Wolverine make Logan the first titan of March.

In Theaters This Week (2/24/2017): Get Out, Collide, Rock Dog

Collide, Nicholas Hoult, Felicity Jones

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  February 24th has three new wide releases, but most movie fans are focused on the Academy Awards which will air Sunday night (spoiler: La La Land will win, I’m calling at least 9 Oscars, so just get ready for that).

In Theaters This Week (2/17/2017): The Wall, A Cure for Wellness, Fist Fight

Fist Fight

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  February 17th is a four-day weekend for a lot of people in the States for Presidents Day (insert your own joke about the current one here), and there are three underwhelming choices to greet it.  Essentially, if you missed John Wick or Lego Batman (I’M GETTING TO THE REVIEW), that’s your best bet if you plan to head to the movies this weekend.

In Theaters This Week (2/10/2017): LEGO Batman Movie, John Wick 2, 50 Shades Darker

John Wick Chapter 2, Keanu Reeves

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  February 10th is considered Valentine’s Day weekend, so I suppose that’s the logic for releasing what will most likely be the three films that dominate the rest of the month all in one weekend.
