Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix reviewed

Yea! It's finally out, and the Baltimore Sun has a fairly well written review.

Except for one line in the middle where they go a little nuts. So I posted a comment

Wonderful movie review of a wonderful movie with one exception. Umbridge is part of the establishment who refuses to see the threat of a mass-murdering killer, and takes extreme steps to suppress any attempt to fight him. I see parallels in the real world, but not quite the same as your review.

It's sad when BDS even gets into movie reviews. Wonder how long the comment will remain up before the Sun toasts it?

Update: Well, that was fast. *poof*, just like magic.
Update2: Nope, I was just too dumb to see where the comments got stuck. It's still there.
Update3: Forgot to define BDS as Bush Derangement Syndrome, a phrase coined by Charles Krauthammer who defined BDS as "the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency—nay—the very existence of George W. Bush". The term reflects a belief that some criticisms of President Bush—for example, a description of President Bush as the greatest current threat to American lives—are of emotional origins rather than based on facts or logic (Credit: Wikipedia)
