    With Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the franchise gets its final director. David Yates will stay with it for the final four films. And I couldn't be happier. He actually makes the story nightmarish when it needs to be, includes a lot of background magic without drawing undue attention to it, and with the actors and story now more mature, I can finally say I've watched a Potter film that hasn't bored or annoyed me. Even Cuaron's turn in the director's chair couldn't make that claim. People more familiar than I with the books and films have told me Order of the Phoenix isn't particularly well-regarded, probably because it's a massive set-up for what it to come. That's hindsight talking. There's a story here or the school under threat from governmental overreach, and Imelda Staunton is a sublime villain as the prim Dolores Umbridge. I was even sorry to see her go so that a tacked-on climax could be thrown in, though the sequence gets better when the Dark Lord shows up. Will Harry succumb to the power of the Sith? Look, give me a Potter film without a damned Quidditch sequence and I'll be a fan, okay? I guess that's it - there's no artificial school competition element in this one; it just tells the evolving story of this world/school, and is the better for it. 3 years 3 months ago

    I like this one, too, although it's not my favorite film of the series. I just can't recall a lot of special scenes. But it was okay. Umbridge was a little darker in the book, but on the whole I still enjoyed the movie. 5 years 3 months ago
