Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

"Fear of a name only increases fear of the thing itself."

 "There is no good and evil, there is only power, and those too weak to seek it..."-Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Well I finally went and saw the movie last night and it was wicked cool!  I absolutely loved it and I was not disappointed.  And yes Harry Potter is an indulgence for me which is why it's in that category.  I love, love, love Harry Potter.  Ok back to the movie, yes there were a couple of things missing from the book but lets be sensible here the movie would be like 4 hrs. long if they tried to put everything in it.  There is however a change on who told Umbridge about the D.A. in the book it wasn't Cho-I think it was her friend.  But really all in all I loved the movie.  Oh and I thought the girl who played Luna Lovegood was perfect; she was just as spacey in the book as in the movie.

I just know when the next movie comes out-The Half Blood Prince it's going to be just as good if not better.  Because really the next movie is just going to be awesome with everything that's going on.  And no I won't ruin anything for those of you who have not read the book even though I'm dying to tell y'all what I can't wait to see happen.

But my real excitement is waiting for the last book, and you better believe I have it pre-ordered and I will probably not put it down because really the suspense is killing me.  And before anyone says anything yes I know I'm a dork when it comes to Harry Potter and that's ok.  I have my own thoughts on the last book, like I don't think Harry will die in the end, his Aunt Petunia will able to do magic, *STOP READING I'M ABOUT TO SPOIL THE END FOR OOTP*, and is Sirius Black really dead.  There are a few other ones but I'm not going to say anything else so as not to spoil it for the rest of you.

I've got to tell you, I haven't read any of the books or seen any of the movies and between you and Chris, I'm really starting to feel like I'm missing something. I guess I'm going to have to hit the book store this week and see what all of the fuss has been about.
I'm glad you enjoyed the movie. You sound like you really had a great time!

I LOVE the Harry Potter books and movies! I already order the last book too! But I do think he is going to die. Guess we shall see!

I don't think he'll die either. Jo Rowling has put a lot of clues in each book that come together in a later book. I remembered something from Chamber the other day that lead me to believe that Harry will not die. I also don't believe Dumbledore is dead. You?

I'm still trying to figure out how you manage to get out to movies the way you do with two small children. I can't even remember the last movie I saw in a theater sans children!

Oh, and I've never gotten into Harry Potter either, but man do I envy the woman who got herself off welfare and into a sweet life with her great imagination and writing skills.

Tracy-Yes you must go and get the books, from the first one I was hooked. As for David he loves the movies but can't really get into the books.

Emily-Have you pre-ordered the book, or are you going to buy it the day it comes out?

Burg-I'm stilly curious about Dumbledore, I read somewhere that he was dead but who knows. Part of me wants to believe that him and Sirius are coming back in full force in the last book. But if Dumbledore is dead and Harry lives I bet she'll make Harry the new headmaster at Hogwarts.

MGM-Well David and I are lucky that his parents are willing to watch them for us. So we bathe and feed them and then catch a late movie. Plus they know my obsession with Harry Potter and knew I was dying to see it.
