    Harry Potter - Order of the Phoenix

    Just saw the movie - it was great!

    Despite the challenge, the movies continue to capture so much of the wonder of the books.

    The actors keep growing into their characters.

    The special effects/design team have again created a fully realized world, and new creatures and characters make an appearance.

    Our local movie critic (who hates everything) declared this the best installment, in what should be regarded as the best movie series ever made. Did I mention he hates everything?

    As with all movies made of books, there are details that have not made it to the movie - it doesn't detract from the film - but there are some characters who don't really get "explained" in the movie.

    If you love Harry Potter, you will love the movie.

    I hope so. I enjoyed the book. My favorite book as Prisoner of Azkaban, but the movie version sucked. I'm a Harry Potter geek, so I'll probably go watch it.

    I have my copy of Deathly Hallows reserved!



    I think the books are so detailed, there is no way a movie could ever capture all the nuance.

    I get the copies in a couple days before they're released, and have to sign away my first born's soul if I do anything more than look at the sealed boxes before midnight.

    I'm a big Harry Potter fan, but I've been slacking. I never got around to buying the 4th movie to watch it. I'll probably get the book when the funds in my checking account will allow it. I have a birthday in 4 days (the 15th) so maybe I'll get enough birthday money to get it or not, it's my 21st.... hahaha

    Not fair that you yanks can see it before it's on release here! (Comes out today.) My book's on order too.

    That does seem rather backward. I'm going to read the next book first, then have a back to back night with the movies sometime in the future.

    hate to differ but i thought that the movie left actually left out to much of the book. it was one of the longest, if not the actual longest, book in the series but one of the shorter movies. it was still a real good movie i just felt like it could have had more added to it.

    I thought it was pretty good. Probably the most faithful to the book since Chamber of Secrets.

    I thought that lady that played Delores Umbridge did a great job- her protrayal was pretty much spot on for what they had in the book. I think the girl playing Luna Lovegood was a little too pretty for her role. I imagined Luna beeing more geeky-awkward than the crazy-sage.

    Another thing that irked me was they really didn't give too much background on Tonks. You see her hair changing color and she is shapeshifting, but you really don't get a reason why. So if you hadn't read the book, you'd have been lost.

    Overall, though, a pretty good movie.

    So do you think it would our prison system be better if we had more Dementors serving as corrections officers?

    I just saw it yesturday and thought it was really cool
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    I don't like Harry Potter so I won't be seeing it.

    I loved Lord of the Rings but Harry doesn't do it for me.

    I just saw Transformers on Friday with my kid (He's 5 and has seen it twice) GREAT Movie! Also seen the new Die Hard yesterday also a GREAT movie.

    Best movie ever 300!!!!
    Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

    I will probably be seeing it to appease my wife. I actually don't mind it though but wish she would go and see some of my favorite movies, like 300. I will have to admit, she did let me go and see that one with a friend of mine and his son. Total guys night out.
