When last we left our hero, Harry fell victim to a trap to bring back Lord Voldermort, which cost Cedric Diggory his life. The Ministry of Magic wants things hushed up, but Dumbledore tells the students at Hogwarts that Diggory was murdered and Lord Voldermort murdered him. As this fifth film opens Harry and his wicked cousin Dudley are attacked by Dementors. Harry uses his wand to defend them and is summarily expelled from Hogwarts for using magic in front of a muggle. The good news is that Harry gets reinstated, but the bad news is that the Ministry of Magic uses the opportunity to appoint Dolores Umbridge, Senior Undersecretary at the Ministry, as the school's new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor. However, Umbridge teaches only the theory and not the practice because she insists Harry is a liar and there is nothing the students need to learn to defend themselves from. Then things get progressively worse.
"The Order of the Phoenix" was the most maddening book to read, not because it was the longest, but because I detest Dolores Umbridge.Read more ›
I have three addictions in life. Four if you count Chocolate. But the first three are: Harry Potter, Books and Special Features. I love DVD extras. They really enable you to see what the film could have been, what was left out.
I think of them as little lost treasures, little bits of fun.
Now, having watched Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, I can truly say that it is by far the best film in the series. It's fresh, engaging, moving, and beautiful. I loved watching it more the second time on DVD than I did when I saw it the first time.
This may have something to do with the fact that, in the theatre, there was a gentleman behind me that talked through the entire bloody thing. Or maybe because when I got to watch it at home, it was on a new twenty six inch screen; but I digress.
I was all excited to look at the Special Features after watching the film. The Husband (Hello Husband!) went off to do his thing. I popped in the second disc of the DVD, preparing myself to be enraptured.
Previous DVD editions of the movie have included games, maps, Triwizard Tournament Challenges, Potion Making Classes, a spidery maze, hidden extras and more. So imagine my surprise when I popped in the second DVD and saw a menu of only five things:
Languages, The Hidden Secrets of Harry Potter, Tour with Tonks and The Magic of Editing.
Measly fare at best. Where were the games, where were the extras, the fun stuff? Where were the Special Features that really helped me get behind the film. Nowhere I could see.Read more ›
J.K. packed a whole lot into Order, with the issues of bullying and harassment and gossip-mongering all being tackled. All this also causing considerable anguish for Harry, who simply wants to do the right thing. Saving the day should be something one can count on with help from the authorities. Unfortunately not the case here.
With this movie, the mature concepts and style from Prisoner are back in full force, much to my happiness. From the desolate schoolyard of looming doom to the long sorrowful corridors of forgotten prophecies. The feeling of a dark reality of war and espionage, existing on a mystical magical level, fills every frame of Order. If you can't have Alfonso Cuaron, then David Yates is a most excellent runner-up for directing the adventures of Harry and the DA. The only real quibble I have with Order is that so much story, vitally important plot points, and great character bits, have to be squished into this time frame. Harry's rant at Sirius's house barely gets underway when the Weasley Twins apparate in to provide some much needed comic relief. The checklist of what has to be done, and adding in all the bits and pieces Potterheads are relishing to see, makes for a very difficult task for anyone involved. All the more reason I fervently wished Harry Potter was a television show instead.
One glaring omission that perturbed me was the truncating of the entire scene at the Dursley's house with the owls.Read more ›
