By the Numbers

Does Harry have the stuff to take down Optimus Prime and his band of shape-shifting robots? It's muggles vs. fanboys at the Cineplex this weekend as Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix battles Transformers for box office supremacy.
A rundown of our reviews of this weekend's new releases:
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
"Has an overzealous script that tries--nobly--to keep as closely as possible to the book but then results in a long, not entirely exciting movie." [Full Review]
Talk to Me
"Ultimately it's Don Cheadle's performance, as well as those of co-stars Chiwetel Ejiofor and Taraji P. Henson, that rescue the film from drowning in a sea of clichés." [Full Review]
"A nice piece of alternative summer fare for those who might not be thrilled about giant robots, cooking rats or explosions in general." [Full Review]
"Interview is predominantly a two-character piece, with Buscemi and Miller sparring for the longest 83 minutes of my life." [Full Review]
Also opening this weekend: Captivity and My Best Friend.
