Been to see Harry Pottah and the Order of the Pheonix twice today. I must say that I like it ALOT and that whoever casted Dolores Umbridge and Luna Lovegood deserves a gold medal. Exactly how I expected them and exactly the way I expected them to be portrayed. Every moment Umbridge was on screen I literally wanted to strangle her, and Luna Lovegood was the airy fairy loon I expected.

Point of Discussion: Who's seen it and what did you think?

Yip, watched it last night and have to agree with you on the casting. Was shorter than I expected. So much more detail from the book could've been used but they stuck to the main story line and we liked it. Hard to say whether I liked it more or less than transformers...

A little thing on the actress who plays Luna Lovegod, there was an article in a mag about her and how as soon as she read the book she felt she was destined to play that character, so she wrote to J.K.Rowlings and look what happened! thing is, she sounded so creepy! like she was one of Harry Potters biggest fan's according to herself, with pics of the actors all over her walls... would have been strange to work with someone like that

I do have to agree with the comments about leaving alot of detail out. The main plot points were there, and that's what's important, but it would have been nice to have a little more detail. And they could have done so without making the movie unbearably long.
