Any similar opinions on the latest Harry Potter movie (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix)? Looking for more feedback. Thanks!

Well, duh - otherwise it would be 12 hours long!

Yes, it's an 850 page book. The Lord of the Rings isn't much longer and it's an 11 hour story. I do wish HP5 would have been a 3 hour movie instead of less than 2 1/2. It felt compressed, and I enjoy the more leisurely pace of the first few movies.

well i absolutely loved this film. I can understand why some may feel that it was not very loyal to the book, but it kept all of the major and most important aspects of the novel. When a movie is too long, it can get tedious so i think they did a great job in putting a nealry-1000-page book into a 2 hr movie.
