Harry Potter 5 (movie)

I saw Order of the Phoenix last night, and it was great. Don't worry, I'm not going to ruin it for those of you who haven't seen it. All I'm going to say it that it wasn't as good as I had hoped, but I still enjoyed most of it thoroughly. I'd give it an 75 out of 100, although I expected at least a 90. I really think I would have liked it less if I wasn't such a big HP fan.

That said, there were some glaring problems with the movie. There were parts that I didn't like. There were parts that totally didn't connect with the books, enough that it bothered me. I know the book was over 800 pages, and the longest one to date, but it really felt like the director tried to fit everything in. I know that a lot of it needs to be there for the next two movies to make sense, but it just seemed like too much. There were too many sub-plots, and too many places the director could have shined by making amazing scenes. It really just felt like he couldn't decided between the two.

Also, Emma Watson is the hottest person ever.

Power Hour at the Dark Horse

I was out in Westport (the bar district here in KC) last friday night. Power Hour had just finished at the Dark Horse, and the guys that were there made full use of it. The deal is that you pay $10, and you get as many wells as you want from 8-10. Don't ask me why they call it Power HOUR. So I showed up at 10PM to spend a few hours with the guys, and a few of them were already pretty gone. As we were leaving for another bar, Colin pulls out his phone and asks me read what it says because he's "too drunk to read" (his words, not mine). Then, with a very serious look on his face, he slurs the funniest thing I heard all night.

she sent me a text, but I'm too drunk to text back.
she'll have to wait.
it's all about atticipation.
This goes out to you Colin!
