Had seen Harry Potter : Order of the Phoenix. Best!! Not so dark as the Movie 3. Less whining and anger as in the actual book tho, I consider that a plus. A very definite plus.
Anyway, there are 2 scenes that I'm very disappointed in.
The first one is during the early scenes, in Little Whinging. The Dementors came and tried to suck the souls out of Dudley and HP. Sad to say, Mrs Figgs are not so shocked or frightened of the situation. She is just portrayed as an old lady that just came back from shopping. Not very frightened that Dementors are just seen in the her neighborhood. Hell, I would be!! Imagine having Dementors swooping around your house and trying to find people to give their famous kiss of death. Brrrr....
The second one is when Fred and George decided to run away from school. In the book, it is portrayed that they create a marshland (or is it a swamp? cannot remember la) on the school corridor. In the movie, it is portrayed that they just created fireworks during the OWL exam. Yeah, a lot of fireworks, but somehow not as big an ending as imagined in the book or as Potterians would say, the start of the twins career.
Apart from all above, most of the portayals are excellent.
Grawp was shown as a friendly giant (in the book, not even sociable). And the centaurs (my favorite icon) are shown shadowy (hope can see more of them in Movie 6). Draco is shown only in several scenes but somehow Crabbe and Doyle have a bit more scene than Draco. Go figure!
I think, having the ending of the Potter saga makes me sad to see the movie.
So, aper citer lagik nak ikut after this?
Star Wars - concluded.
TLOTR - concluded.
HP - concluded.
Think tinggal Transformers and Narnia jer lah. At least confirm that diorang akan buat Prince Caspian. Yey!!

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
