Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Just returned from seeing Harry Potter, and I loved it! Yes, they do leave out loads, but it's hard include every detail from an almost 800 page book into a 2 hour and 18 minute film. The film is grown up, dark, mysterious, and a great ride all round. I saw it with WH and a cinema of children (some dressed in costume), they applauded at the opening and ending credits (love that, just like seeing the Saturday matinee at the Sacred Heart Church with Father Jaconelli marching up and down the isle, and we were Presbyterian). I am not sure I would take very small children to see it, as it does have a few touch and go scary moments. This may be my favorite of all the films, although it is not my favorite book, Half Blood Prince is, however, that might change next week. I am still working on my other Gryfindoor sock, haven't turned the heel yet, to tell the truth, hopefully they will be blocking this weekend, I have my hat, my outfit and my socks, Professor McGonigal shall be ready to attend the Grand Hallows Ball.

Hi Isobel,thanks for the comment on my blog. Don't give up on the ms3. I am very shakey with lace and am not planning on doing more than one piece a week as I find it really taxing. It would be nice to know I could share notes with a familiar "face" the group is huge!!

I agree 100%. It is my favourite movie so far but not my favourite book. We all dressed up. My teenager was Tonks in a bright pink wig, my 10 old son was Harry in his Weasley initial jumper and my 7 year old daughter was an owl carrying witch. As usual I was Mrs Weasley and as usual, no one knew who I was despite wearing handknitted socks and jumper and carrying my knitting. Sigh...
