Another new (exclusive) trailer has shown up at Yahoo Movies.  Its a bit longer, and with even more scenes than the previous.  Definitely looking forward to seeing this.

This looks like it will definately be the best movie yet.

It's so tough to translate these books to screen because they're so long. I've read all the books, so far, but my husband hasn't. I know what's going on when I'm watching and sometimes he doesn't.  I wish they could make mini-series and put everything on screen.

Can't wait for the next book!

Harry Potter Theme Park on the way. It sounds like it could be pretty neat, and is scheduled to open in 2009.

It could be cool, it depends if Harry survives book 7.

the Southern Baptists are going to descend on orlando like a righteous whirlwind.   We can only hope that this wizard theme park opens on the same weekend as Disneyworld's gay days.


On a different note, is anyone else bothered that all we ever got was Star Tours?  Where's my Star Wars theme park!!!

You know, that's the first thing I thought of when I read this as well - and a friend of mine and I discussed this awhile back as well.  Just think what kind of rides and attractions you could do with a Star Wars theme park.  Heck, I'd be happy to just walk/sit in a recreated Falcon cockpit and interior.  A trench run ride or something - there's all kind of ideas you could come up with.  Oh well, back on topic now :P.

Great idea! No doubt about it...we could have themed rides like mill falcon in asteroid field ...ATAT stomping over hoth..a roller coaster going into a tunnel/but the tunnel is a Sarlacc. It would be fun. It could be done. Why hasn't it yet?
Hmmm

Really? That looks like some spoon action to me.

I guess Malfoy knew where the final Horcrux was located after all.  :-*

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.
