Apparently I haven't had enough of Harry Potter this week; I'm off to see "Order of the Phoenix."
Update: I liked it fine, but I'm in the "too short!" category. It needed another ten minutes to fill in details, I thought. And I never thought I'd say this, but I think it needed a little more CGI to show the statuary in the Ministry's Hall exploding during the final battle.

We liked it! We're going to visit the Simpsons tomorrow!
Definitely could have been a bit longer, good as it was. I'd have enjoyed a little more Lupin and Tonks and if it was revealed that Umbridge sent the Dementors after Harry, I missed it.
And there should have been the payoff to the scene of Harry's father tormenting young Snape. Maybe they'll put out an expanded edition on DVD.
Lance, I thought that scene was way too short, particularly in light of how important it was in explaining Snape's future behavior toward Harry.
I was just thinking that each director must have been begging Rowling for hints as to what was going to happen so he'd know what to foreshadow.
