I can't post a long entry today... barely have two brain cells bouncing together to make coherent thoughts as it is.
Order of the Pheonix is a dang long movie; not that I noticed it when I was watching it... I would be happy with a 10 hour long one.
My only problem is seeing it at 10 at night and not getting to bed until 2am. And then - you know - caring for my kids the next morning? Heh.
Anyways... it rocked. It's my favorite of the movies (and it's been a long time favorite of the books of mine too). I wished they had included the scene with Neville & his parents in St. Mungo's rather than just having him tell Harry about them- I've always been very emotionally affected by that scene and I think it would have carried more weight of the darkness of the story (and that Voldemort brings), but - I can live with it.
They did a most excellent job with communicating all of main stuff of the story.
(Ok I just need to stop. "Main stuff of the story"?! That doesn't even make sense.)
I loved it.
