I have to say, I liked the movie better the second time I saw it. I think Daniel Radclife did an excellent job. I do agree with another poster earlier that Harry was much angrier & a 'hard to live with teen' than what was portrayed here; but that's not his fault. They would have had to put much more of what happened in the book in the movie.
I really wished there would have been more with the Order. I really like all those characters, Moody, Lupin, Tonks, Kingsley, Sirius. In the final cut they weren't on screen enough to matter.
I was wondering what everyone's opinion of the Dementors compared to "Prisoner of Azkaban"?
Carol, I'm sort of biased since PoA was a favorite of mine, I preferred the Dementor's from PoA greater than OotP.

did anybody catch how sirius head looks like in the fire place ? compare it with the one appears in GOF that was incredible , why they change it i hated that.
and i didnt feel in the movie how much harry gets upset about siruis death as Jo said in the book it was for him as two universe the one with siruis in and the other without... and for god sake where is the theme ? why we didnt hear it
the book was loads better i enjoyed it million times more.
i miss many parts of the story specialy "weasley is our king " and the conversation with nicklous nearly headless neck ,, i think it was very important.

The Dementors, as someone else mentioned, were different than they were previously- so was the fire scene with Sirius. I think that the director should have kept these the same (things like that don't suddenly change). And where was the great scene where Harry realized that he could have looked into the mirror that Sirius had given him to see if he was being hurt rather than ask kreacher. There was so much more missing like George and Fred's brilliant exit form Hogwart's and Harry asking Lupin and Sirius about his parents through Umbridge's fire.
I think part of the problem of the film is the new director. He did a terrible job at bringing the movie to life; the actor's were just as good as they've been throughout the years. And I put some of the blame on J.K. Rowling herself because as an author of a series that is soo praised by its readers, she should have made sure that one of the most important novels in the series (it's where they all grow) actually reflected the book she wrote. It's a shame that David Yates is set to direct the 6th movie too. I adore the novels and hope that the next two films are more satisfying.

I'm pretty sure the Pensieve scene will be in the movie, because I've found a few websites saying it's going to be in there, and imdb.com has "Young James Potter", "Young Remus Lupin", "Young Peter Pettigrew", "Young Sirius Black", and "Young Severus Snape" listed as part of the cast. There has also been a lot of speculation as to the significance of that particular scene; luckily, J.K. Rowling is asked by the directors what is important and what isn't so important, so if it is important, I'm sure they left it in the film. I certainly hope it is included, because that was one of my favorite scenes in the book, and I would love to see how they present it onscreen. One week to go!!!

Actually, they kind of change the pensieve scene in the movie. Instead of Harry peering into a pensieve in Snape's office, Harry sees the scene during Occlumency by countering Snape's penetration spell and and tapping into his memories. I really think the whole pensieve thing was better, but either way the scene was important so they couldn't leave it out!

One that sticks out in my mind as being a good movie compared to the book is "A Walk to Remember". Now that is the way a movie should represent the book.
I have heard a lot of complaints about all of the movies. I am one to complain myself, believe me I am no angel, but we all need to realize that they pick certain things to put into movies so that those people who don't read the books are not totally lost.
Why does it have to end?
JKR Please write another book series.

Lets see:Ron’s Quiditch team addition, the struggle of Griffindor and Ron itself until the final game; the whole story of the Order of the Phoenix, past and present; the Pensive scene instead of the defensive spell; the increasing importance of Neville’s character in the story; the Death Eaters battle against Harry and his mates it’s more dangerous and there are more seriously injured than it’s showed; the importance of Snape’s role at the Order’s purposes; Harry’s uncles awareness about the true existence of the magic world and the final encounter of Harry’s magical friends with them at train station. And most important, the extensive and clear Dumbledore’s final explanation to Harry about his nature and purpose. Should I say more?
