Order of the Phoenix was awesome!
Despite the poor reviews I've read, I myself enjoyed the film. I woke up at 5am yesterday because I was too excited!! σ(^。^;
I've been wanting to watch the film since last year and I wasn't disappointed.
Everytime I get excited about a movie, I can't hep but control my tears when the movie starts.
Either I'm overexcited or too emotional... (／｡＼)
Anyway, I controlled myself well when the movie started.
But the emotions I've been compressing burst out when Sirius Black died! ｡･ﾟ(´□｀)ﾟ･｡
When he got hit with the Avada Kedavra spell by Bellatrix, I invited stares when I gave a loud sob!
Although I know that he will die, but I just couldn't control myself!! ヽ(´o｀;)
I also cried badly when I first read the book, if only you could see the piles of used tissue beside me. (´･ω･`)
I enjoyed the scene when Umbridge quizzed Snape about his rejected applications to be the DADA(Defence Against The Dark Arts) teacher for 4 years. Ron kept smiling that Snape hit him on the head. σ(^。^; A somewhat similar scene also took place in Goblet of Fire.
Dolores Umbridge aka Pink Panther is enjoyable to watch on screen compared to the witch I had imagined while reading the book. Snape & McGonagall's screen time are too short!! I'm sure we'll see more of Snape in Half-Blood Prince.
A pity the Howler sent by Dumbledore to Aunt Petunia was cut.
Nothing was mentioned about Ron & Hermione becoming Prefects, and so is the estrangement between Percy & the Weasleys.
I was looking forward to the cleaning of the House of Black, Buckbeak & especially the portrait of Sirius' mother.
Kreacher had few seconds of screen time but we will see more of him in the last 2 films. Dobby is cut from the film entirely, instead it was Neville who discovered the Room of Requirement.
I was disappointed with the lack of Lupin's screen time. He was absent as part of the Advance Guard to take Harry to Headquarters. The St. Mungo's part was entirely cut and the Battle at the Department of Mysteries was shortened. (I was looking forward to the part where Ron became delirious ヽ(´o｀;)) The Wizarding Battle with the Death Eaters was breathtaking. ^-^b
The Occlumency scenes were disappointedly short. Harry sees a quick glimpse of Snape's childhood when he uses the shield charm on Snape's Legilimens charm but in the book he viewed glimpses through the Pensieve.
Although many parts of the book which I enjoyed have been cut for length, the film is pretty consistent while I ignore some of the mistakes as I mentioned above.
I was kinda disappointed about the lack of explanation about The Prophecy. For those who don't read the book, they will be left clueless about the importance of a Harry Potter-named crystal ball to Lord Voldemort.
I'm gonna miss Sirius Black...（ーДー；）ヾ
Lastly, Dumbledore's exit with his precious phoenix really got style!
My rating: ●●●●o
I'm tempted to watch it again in the theaters.
For now, I'm gonna patiently wait for the DVD release☆
只不过，那一场Sirius Black被杀的一景把弄哭了 ｡･ﾟ(´□｀)ﾟ･｡
Sirius Black是我想当喜欢的人物 .
饰演的Gary Oldman也是我很欣赏的演员. （*＾ｰ＾*）
