Despite the fact that so many people dislike this volume of the Harry Potter series, this is actually my favourite film out of all of them, mostly because of the end scene at the ministry, the general mix of heartfeltness and humour, and the addition of Umbridge as a secondary villain. I loved Imelda Staunton's performance in this role, as she encompassed Umbridge from the books pretty well. As much as I like this film, there are definitely some things wrong with it.      …

It's based on a horrible book and does a good job of rescuing the "Harry Potter" concept from the "Harry Potter" in the novel. No easy feat.

is another great installment in the Harry Potter series (and, in my opinion, much better than Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Widescreen Edition)). It features the internal dissension in the wizard world between those fear Lord Voldemort versus the bureaucrats who fear losing power. Imelda Staunton as the Ministry of Magic bureaucrat Prof. Umbridge plays her part well. Often funny, always perky, she steals the movie. She has a great soundtrack theme as well. Nicholas Hooper's theme for Prof. …

The 5th movie in the Harry Potter series is again a great installment in this movie franchise. As usual, the mood is darker than the previous movie, though we do have some true romance in this one. The cast is big, as we have numerous characters from all the previous movies, with several new ones, both students and professors. Alas this is the first movie without any Quidditch scenes, though this is more than compensated by some awesome broomstick flying thru downtown London. And we finally have …

Now let me be honest from the start and say that I've only read the first 4 Harry Potter books and have never really been interested in the rest. I must also be honest and say I've only ever really been a casual fan of the films, not getting overly excited about the upcoming release, nor being somewhat ashamed of even saying "oh that looks good." I simply ended up watching Order of the Phoenix on a whim and I must say I found it very enjoyable. The combination of the hidden magic world and believable …

No one who has stated that this film feels like a "Cliff's Notes" version of the wonderful J.K. Rowling novel, "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" is wrong. They are 100% correct. With that said, however, I must admit that I still enjoyed this film. For fans of the books (like myself), this film could be very brutal at times, eliminating the bulk of the tale in order to swiftly move to the primary story. In essence, this film paid lipservice to most of the parts of the book that didn't deal …

Pros: Imagery, imagination, pacing, and a fantastic battle      Cons: Dolores Umbrage      The Bottom Line: Ignore the book vs movie battle. If you like the series this won't disappoint. If you are new to it, don't start with this one.      Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot.      Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) finds himself in the muggle world during summer break with …
