Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

The Harry Potter franchise is red hot.
This summer sees the release not only of the last book in the series, but also the latest of the films – Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
I went to see the film last night with a few friends.
First off I have to say it was fantastic.
If you are one of those people who complains about how films diverge from the books on which they are based, then you will probably have some ammunition to use against it. However you need to be pragmatic. If Warner had used the book in its entirety the film would probably have run to about 4 hours.
Having said that there were a number of elements in the film that didn’t make too much sense, unless of course you kept a close eye on the newspapers (The Daily Prophet) that appeared from time to time.
As one of my friends commented, the films have been getting darker and darker.
The first film in the series was light and magical. Now it’s bordering on almost nightmarish sequences.
It’s only a week until the next book, which is the final one in the Harry Potter series, is released.
