Just got back from seeing Order of the Phoenix. Opinions of the nephew (15) and nieces (12 and 14): 'It was the best one yet!' I'd probably have to agree with them based on the fact I was thoroughly entertained the entire time. I think, in the case of the HP books, it also helps that it has been so long since I've read whichever one I'm going to see, that I forget large chunks of it and don't miss if things are cut out. The Nephew remembered something that I had completely forgotten, and he read it the same time I did. I think it's probably better viewing for me that way. I'm not anticipating things (although I always remember the deaths in the books and I know those are going to happen) and not disappointed when things may have been left out. And the special effects in it were just wonderful.

I know it's been a long time since I've been to the movies (I think the last time was probably for Narnia), but is it new that you sit through 15 minutes of TV commercials?? I mean, commercials for TV shows and advertisements that you see on TV. And only after you have sat through those do you finally get to the movie previews. Some of which actually looked kind of intriguing...

Anyhow, thoroughly enjoyed the movie and I really am impatiently awaiting the next book.

And now, a long-awaited cup of tea and back to Inkspell.
