The Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix MOVIE Thread

What did you guys think of the movie? I thought it was bad TBH. It went so quickly and they missed out lots of important parts from the book.

IMO it is the worst Harry Potter movie yet.

Re: The Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix MOVIE Thread

This was the first movie I saw without reading the book, I must say I was pretty happy.

I was sick of the repetition in the books (I think in the 4th about 30% was a recap of the first 3)

I thought it was a good movie, I certainly enjoyed myself, and so did the other geeks in the movie theater who couldn't help themselves and clapped and shouted whenever something big was going down (like Neville finally using his wand properly )

Re: The Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix MOVIE Thread

Book 5 is basically my least favorite of the series. Harry is a little asshole and its WAY TOO LONG. I haven't seen the movie yet, but I figure the more drudgery it cuts out of the book, the better. The high points of the book are, of course, Fred and George and the best potter villain ever, Umbridge. So long as the movie portrays them properly, I'll be happy. I'm going to see it tonight.

Umbridge is just like how you would expect her to be. She really stands out at the start-of-year feast when everybody is wearing black - expect for her who is wearing all pink.

Re: The Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix MOVIE Thread

Harry Potter 5 was also my least favorite book however the movie was good. In fact, it let me appreciate the book. I did not like the book because Harry's "rage" was too annoying. At the movie, the portrayal of Prof. Umbridge and Lastrange (sp?) was great.

Re: The Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix MOVIE Thread

I liked it better than the other movies but that's probably because I haven't read the fifth book in ages. If I had read that book before seeing the movie, I probably wouldn't of liked it. They did do a really good job at portraying Umbridge though.

Re: The Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix MOVIE Thread

i am so surprised many did not like this book

it's certainly my favorite one! i love it when they have a great idea of harry teaching the defense against dark arts! it's great to see how harry fights the power no matter what, how smart and patient dambldore is it's the best book!

i am just a little afraid to be disappointed by the movie-- the movie won't be able to show all the tension, all the preassure, all the despair of knowing you are right and being unable to persuade people and be helpless against the crowd

i love it how the mass media is shown here! it's so true!

anyway, i did not see the movie yet but i hope to do that next week! and i can't believe i'll be reading the 7th book just in few days!

Harry Potter time is coming!

Harry Potter in general sucks ass and much like they ban kids from some adult movies, they should ban adults from this kind of movie. Ridiculous.
