Saw this movie in theatres and was kind of disappointed. It was very "meh". Not really memorable or particularly interesting. It felt very much like a filler until the next movie.

I was just discussing seeing this movie w/ a friend. Neither of us could recall what this book/movie was about. We'd both read it ... but a while ago. Perhaps thats an indication of misschickie's opinion that it was unremarkable. Either way, I hope to see it soon.

I thought it was great! on Jul 30, 2007 @ 06:53 pm

I thought that this one was one of the better Harry Potter movies. I am a Harry Potter Addict, own/seen all movies own/read all the books and I have to say, if you compare it with the other movies, it is a lot better. The 1st and 2nd were meh, 3rd was really good, 4th was kinda meh and this one was one of the better ones too.

They did change some of the things from the book though, the Weasley twins were suppose to leave behind an enchanted pond of some sort so that they would always be remembered at Hogwarts. That and we weren't able to get inside Harry's head like in the novels. But that happens in every movie.

I must say though, I loved the woman who played Umbridge. AHAHAA she was amazing!!!

That is enough now of my Harry Potter Geek-dom!

I was just talking w/ a girlfriend and she said the Umbridge character was incredible!! She said the movie is worth seeing just for her!

I liked this movie a lot. I understand why misschickie made her comment, though. The movie is not filled w/ a lot of action or fun/creative Hogwarts challenges. To me this movie served as an overall picture to really build up how the series will culminate. This story in the series also is a sort of coming of age for the characters. They are no longer fun curious little kids. They are now assuming their roles as up and coming mature wizards and witches. They are becoming more responsible as they grow up and therefore their confrontations are not as light as they once were. I don't think of this movie/book as a filler, but rather as a tool to foreshadow and set up the final 2 sections.
