Looks good ya!
EricLA saidYes, looks really good. I was worried that it would focus more on the "love story" aspects. Early interviews with the cast and director seemed to focus on that, and the director referring to it as a "romantic comedy." But, the Tom Riddle scenes looked really eery and disturbing, so hopefully the dark aspects will get the right attention.

I love all the books, although the movies don't stay too true to them, they are good and entertaining for what they are.
I CANT WAIT!!
SurrealLife saidMy favourite movie so far is "The Goblet of Fire" (it was my favourite book as well). The ending was amazing, and very emotional as well.

I love this series, both the books and the movies. I agree that the Order of the Phoenix was weak, choppy, and depended too much on "inside knowledge." By that I mean that the director and screenwriter left many connections between the scenes out...and unless you read the book, much of it did not make sense.
I also thought that Order of the Phoenix was getting too much like a generic action movie, and lost a lot of the magic.
Speaking of which, I know I'll be in the minority on this one, but my favorite movie of the series was the first. I think finding out about that world was magical, pun intended. The first time you see Diagon Alley....geez, that was like my first trip to Disneyland when I was a kid.
Also, in my opinion Richard Harris captured the look and feel of Dumbledore, while Michael Gambon was miscast. But this is a minor criticism.
This movie, and this series, is so good, it was painful to watch some of the wannabes, like Narnia and The Golden Compass.
I still remember seeing the main hall of Hogwarts at Halloween...with all those jack-o-lanterns hovering....what atmosphere! I am looking forward to the next movie, and will be sad when the last is done, as I was when I read the last book.
