Harry Potter & The Order of the Phoenix Movie

Being the big Harry Potter nerd that I am, I went to a midnight showing of the new movie last night. It was pretty awesome--lots of people were dressed up and everyone cheered during the good parts. (There was also a lot of whistling and cat-calling when Cho & Harry kissed.) I just love watching midnight movies b/c the audience gets sooo into it. I also really enjoyed the movie. I had my doubts b/c Book 5 is huge and I was sure they would leave out some of my favorite parts. They did. But the movie does a great job of showing Harry's inner struggles. I also loved several of the minor characters. Their casting director should get a bonus. Go see the movie ASAP and watch out for these characters...Luna, Tonks, Bellatrix Lestrange, and the evil Umbridge. I feel like I missed out on several details b/c I was so involved with the plot so I'm going to go see it again this weekend. :-) And only 10 days till The Deathly Hallows comes out! Please don't let Harry die, please, please!


  1. I'm glad you posted the photo of Luna, because she was my favorite part about the movie!

    What did you think of them letting Harry realize that his dad bullied Snape the way Malfoy bullies him and then just DROPPING it instead of using it as part of Harry's emotional growth like in the book?

  2. Ohh, I totally didn't think about that! I've only seen it once so I haven't had time for all the details to sink in. But you're right, they did just drop the part about Harry's dad! I wonder if it's going to be a deleted scene??
