Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007)
"The Rebellion Begins "With their warning about Lord Voldemort's return scoffed at, Harry and Dumbledore are targeted by the Wizard authorities as an authoritarian bureaucrat slowly seizes power at Hogwarts.
Amazing movie put forth by a stellar cast!
Once again, I believe that the series is only getting better with each
progressive movie. I attended a preview screening tonight and was
completely blown away by the movie. While quite a bit of detail was
lost in the movie, how can you really expect a three hour movie to
capture what takes Rowling hundreds of pages to explain? This said,
Yates did a great job capturing the spirit of the book, and he had me
on my seat from the first scene all the way through the end of the
movie. I cried, I laughed, and I am pretty sure there were a few times
where I couldn't breathe from the tension.
What really made the movie for me was the talent of the actors. As
expected, the older cast members deliver some of the best acting
England has to offer. Sidenote: there is something about Emma Thompson
where every time she cries in a movie, I start tearing up myself. I was
especially impressed with how much Daniel, Emma (Watson), and Rupert
have improved their acting since the last movie. Having come from
seeing Daniel in Equus two weeks ago, I was expecting a lot from him.
Even after seeing him display more intensity than I thought possible on
stage, he surprised me in Phoenix. His emotions were so raw and genuine
that I literally got goosebumps.
Well done to the cast and crew! I can't wait for the next one!!
