How did you like the latest Harry Potter movie? (no spoilers please)
Review of Order of the Phoenix
I went and saw the 5th Harry Potter movie the Saturday after it came out. Overall I found it enjoyable, but as usual the book is better. Like so many others have said the movie seems too short. While they could not have included everything from the book, I feel that the movie could have easily been at least 30 minutes longer and still be tolerable to see in a theater. There just seems to be some important aspects missing that are even larger than the things left out of previous movies. The movie also seems to move quite fast and it gives the idea that the events happened in a much shorter time than a year at Hogwarts. Despite that it is definitely worth seeing if you like Harry Potter, although it is probably best to see it as a matinee and not pay full price for this version that is just too short fast paced movie.
