Saw Order of the Phoenix. If I could pick one word to critique it, it would be: Unbalanced.
There were a lot of things going for the movie. I loved that that everyone came back to do it. I loved a lot of bits that will spoil the movie if I mention them. I loved some of ways that the script deviates from the book, but the films biggest enemy is the uninspired direction. There were simply too many missed moments filmicly that really took away much of the wonder and magic that the reviews have mentioned.
As soon as I saw what a great job Alfonso Cuaron did with Azkaban, I thought he'd be perfect for Phoenix given the tone of the book. I really wish he had done it, though I think Newell would have done just as well.
