Have you been following the episodes of the Harry Potter since its first airing? Do you have the complete set of the books? How did you find the story of the new episode entitled "Order of the Phoenix?" Do still want to watch the sequel of this sci-fi movie? Do you have any info of the upcoming episode?

Yes, I have seen all the episodes of the HP movies, though I must say that the books are definitely much much better. I do have all the books and that is maybe one reason why I understand the movies. Though none of the movies have stuck to the book so far, the only adaptation that I found interesting was POA. The director included a few scenes that were not in the book to make the audience understand how Harry suddenly realised that he had seen himself make the Patronus. That was the work of a genious. The present sequel "Order of the Phoenix" has quite a few breathtaking art sets that I must admit I hadn't quite imagined them as beautiful in my mind. Some of the actors are quite good especially those of Imelda Staunton(as Professor Umbridge) and Evanna Lynch(as Luna Lovegood). But the way the movie has been edited, it cuts a sorry figure on the whole to a person who has not read the books! So much of it goes unexplained. And then the dialogue delivery.. I do hope they get someone to supervise how the actors deliver their dialogues with some pauses and so on for the real meaning of the script to uncover. I guess even school students would have made a very good impression with the dialogues on stage. Of course, I do want to watch the sequel in the series. Sometimes, our imagination does not do a good job and the movies do help us understand the books a little better. The only thing, I wish is someone who is HP fan take up the directorial job and make a real good job of it.

I do not think this is what yuou would caLL a sci-fi movie. it is more of a fantasy movie. and yes I will catch the sequel. And i will catch all instalments again once the last movie comes out and then ill have a harry potter marathon. i think the movies are awesome.

I've seen "Order of the Phoenix", but it is really something made me disappointed. I don't know what will the next movies like.

I have all of the books and a pre-order ticket for the 7th that I am picking up at midnight tonight when it is released. The books are all better than the movies, but the movies are still good. They are better if you've never read the books, but I have read the whole series 3 times so watching the movies can become frustrating because so much is left out that I may think is important, but the directors do not.

The first time I've read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone was in highschool and since then, I got hooked on it. I have all the books hardbound and paperback. I have seen all the movies of course and I'll be watching the sequel to this fantasy movie. I already have made reservations for the 7th and last book. As I have read online, Dumbledore will be back on the 7th book and that is what I have been looking forward to.
