Title: Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix
Director: David Yates
Run Time: 139 minutes
Summary: When Harry discovers that Hogwarts’ new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher won’t teach them how to defend themselves he is determined to take over instead… secretly of course. As Harry’s students are actually learning how to defend themselves, Professor Umbridge is taking more and more control over the school. Not only that but Lord Voldemort has returned! A race to the finish begins. Prepare for battle.
Why I watched this movie:
As mentioned in past posts I’m rereading and rewatching the Harry Potter books and movies.
- I thought the actress for Dolorous Umbridge (Rachel Atkins) was perfect! She was just as I imagined!
- I also liked the actress for Luna Lovegood (Evanna Lynch) she did a great job in her role.
- I liked the sequence of scene where Harry and the other students are practicing spells in the Room of Requirement. I thought it was fun and exciting. Filch was hilarious.
- I heard that Daniel Radcliffe was doing another movie before this one and he had to have his hair cut for it. That was, in my opinion, a terrible decision. His hair looked so much better in Goblet of the Fire then it does in this one.
- Cornelius Fudge was oblivious to everyone who was trying to tell him that Lord Voldemort has returned. He had to see it to believe it and that is dangerous indeed when we’re talking about Voldemort.
Last minute thoughts: I heard that they were making Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows into two movies even though Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix is the longest book. I think that if they’re going to make any movie into two it should be this one. They’re going to have to add a lot more if Harry Potter 7’s gonna be two movies . Don’t you think?
