    this movie is like in the upper third of my rating. i love the darkness of it, grimmauld place and kreacher (they nailed it), the casting of umbridge, luna and cho chang and how the department of mysteries looks. what i don't like is that they brought back the actor for sirius back bc i headcanon him way different :_) also that added cheesy quote about 'you will never learn love or friendship' and how they mellowed out Harry's anger bc in the book he yells in the beginning and in the end destroys Dumbledore's office but for some reason they didn't put that in.

    I'm sad that Luna wasn't introduced earlier in the series. She was awesome. I loved Luna.

    Order of the Phoenix is one of the best Harry Potter movies but my least favorite Harry Potter book

  • Phil Ingrouille

    As I've watched the films more over the years, Order of the Phoenix is my second least favourite. I know Deathly Hallows is meant to build up Part 2, but it still feels like a drag a lot of the time, so it's my least favourite. Prisoner of Azkaban is my favourite out of them, with Chamber of Secrets my second favourite.

    Order of the Phoenix is one of my favorite Harry Potter movies. My least favorite are Goblet of Fire and Half Blood Prince.

  • Rene Knight

    Its my least favorite film, for the simple reason that Order of the Pheonix is the longest book, but one of the shortest films. Too much just got cut.

    I must see all movies but i have a feeling that this will be my favourite! I made contact first time with TOOP on PSP and this one i love! I also saw the 1st movie and have red the first two books.... Idk why, but i love Order of Phoenix

  • Cody Baggs

    It's my favorite book and thereby my favorite/least favorite movie. I love it because it's an adaptation of my favorite book and it was a great performance by Gary Oldman as Sirius Black. But there were so many unnecessary changes made that I struggle to like certain parts of it.

  • KimPossible

    Order of the Phoenix is my favorite of the books, but the movie ranks #6 out of the 8 films for me.

    I do see why people don't like the film - like the Last Jedi, but I do see why a lot of people liked the film - like the Last Jedi. I like the darker tones - how far David Yates pushed Harry in an emotional depth. How Harry felt when Dumbledore avoided him - I found that part in the film brushed over, but it's more explained in the books. Umbridge was horrible - basically the only driving force that actually made me watch the film and read the books. It's not my favourite Harry Potter movie (or favourite movie in general - I do prefer how Rian Johnson did the Last Jedi more than what David Yates did with the rest of the Harry Potter franchise - mind you it's better than at least half of those young adult movies like the Maze Runner and Divergent). I'll probably say that either the Deathly Hallows or the Prisoner of Azkaban are my favourites.

    "Look at me!!!" Best scene in all of the movies

  • Taylor Glover

    well I personally believe this was one of my favorites. The thing is you see Harry's dark side. His feeling isolated and frustrated. Then I love Luna and her speech about voldemort wanting him to feel alone. people trying to protect him saying he's just a boy when in fact the war was inevitable anyway. I also loved Harry's speech about great wizards because it really meant a lot. I love this franchise because it really depicts how humans operate. I think Sirius blacks death really hurt me. I never read the book but I agree with you. While in college reading the giver the movie completely shit (not in a good way) on the book. I felt Harry's emotion with Sirius because he was literally all he had the closest to his family. God parents are really important. Now dolores... ugh I hate her in everything she's in ugh

    I think Sirius' death in the movie was one of the most emotional scenes for me. Since I have read and reread the books countless times, it really was tragic. And the scene itself... how Dan Radcliffe screams and crumples in Lupin's arms as Lupin holds him back... all without any sound... gets me every time.

  • elisabeth moss
    elisabeth moss 10 months ago

    it’s my least favorite as well. the book was so much more emotional and the film didn’t really capture harry’s internal struggle. it also didn’t explain the prophecy well. i’m rereading the book now because i can’t remember shit about voldemort and the prophecy and the movie just glossed over it after a big lead up.

  • sincerestfall

    w_R Andrs Year ago

    Yeah i agree, the fifth installment was the weakest (except the book because it was worth the 890 pages)

  • Hey, isn't that Devon Graham?

    Very odd movie for me. I remember watching it and feeling it was too fast paced and glossed over things I liked about the book. Can’t say I really felt that way about the other films. Idk for sure what it is but this is probably my least favorite film of the series

  • Sean Rhead
    Sean Rhead Year ago

    I disagree about the pacing. I thought it felt very rushed for most of the movie. The book did feel very slow though.

  • Captain Mitchell
    Captain Mitchell Year ago +1

    Literally just sat down this month and decided to read all the books. I have never read them before, but have probably watched each of the HP movies a few dozen times. And I will say that I enjoyed the books so much more than the movies and I LOVED the movies. There is just SO much detail into every little thing that the movies just can't possibly touch on that you can only get in book form. This video is what convinced me that I should read them and I am glad I did. You are absolutely right about Sirius and not giving a toss about him in the movies. Anyways, I now need to find a book to fill the void HP left after I finished ha ha.

    While I loved watching this series as a whole, I agree that this one is probably the least of my favorites. Don't get me wrong, I loved this one as much as the other ones. But there are a few things I disliked: 1. Being the shortest movie in the series. 2. UMBRIDGE!!!!!

  • Jeremy Brookes
    Jeremy Brookes Year ago +2

    @ 3.58 I get the drift regarding how dubious it would be for people to doubt Harry saying ''Voldemorts back!'' after someone died. similar to someone coming saying ''Hitlers back'' after someone died.
    But in the books and movies there are several pieces of evidence that Fudge skipped over:
    1. the death Eaters at the world cup plus the dark mark.
    2. the disappearances of people in the movie mentioned on the radio. (in the book Bertha Jorkins)
    3. Barty Crouch escaped Azkaban murdered his ministry official father kidnapped Moody and impersonated him for a year arranged the rigging of the tournament and testified to helping Voldemort (in the book he suffers the dementor's kiss but testifies under truth potion with Winky as an alias.)
    4. And later on the mass breakout from Azkaban.

    I actually hate Umbridge more than Voldemort and Bellatrix, that's saying something because Bellatrix killed Dobby and Sirius and boiiiiiiii I LOVED Dobby.

  • noiram

    my list from better to worse movie :
    1 ) deathly hallows part 2
    2) deathly hallows part 1
    3 ) prisoner of Azkaban
    4 ) Philosopher's stone & order of the Phoenix
    5 ) Chamber of secrets & half blood prince
    10 ) ... gobelet of fire ( gosh, it actually took me a minute or so to remember it's name... that's saying something when we know I am a hard core Haryy Potter Fan ! ^^ )

  • Bruz the Chopper

    the best potter film in my opinion

  • Sean Lee

    No mention of the final battle scene?!?!
    Also, I thought they did show the significance of Sirius Black's death. They did make him like a father figure to Harry IMO. The way they showed his death was more interesting to me because it was shown in Harry's perspective of disbelief, then fogging anger.

    samenzwering Year ago

    For me David Yates ruined the final four films, with his epic-cool-opera-exploding-darkening style. Wands became guns practically. Camera started spinning like shit. Rubbing the dark tone in your face. It's what he does. Empty epicness.

    5:12 Maybe the decision to make the scene entirely in silence took away the importance of the character, which i think, is the opposite to what they had intended.

    Hmm ranking ... worst to best? 2, 7.0, 6, 7.5, 5, 1, 4, 3 but I still contend the fight at the end of 5 is the best, I felt bad when Sirius died simply because he's Gary Oldman.

  • Cecilia Mok

    My opinion's the same as you! This movie is my least favourite of the series. I couldn't remember the plot even after watching it for more than three times when I was a teen. I guess, like you said, it's way too informational for my liking, and all those info has made the story a bit too lengthy and complicated.

    Phoenix was my favorite book. When Dumbledore showed up at the Ministry, I really felt the relief the kids were feeling. I was truly terrified when Voldemort possessed Harry, and I really felt Harry's rage when Dumbledore said, "I know how you feel" after Sirius died. Having said that, I do have to agree that none to little of that transferred to the movie. My love for the book means I just can't call this my least favorite HP movie, though I will call it the least successful. That might be a weird distinction, I know. But my least favorite movie has to be Half Blood Prince. In the book, it's explained why Snape is the title character and in the movie it's not. When he reveals himself at the end, I thought. "Well, yeah I knew that because I read the book, but taking this movie by itself, who cares? What does it mean?" There's just nothing there to latch onto. Without that explanation, the words "Half Blood Prince" are just some words and I think the explanation should have been given. That makes it more flawed than Order of the Phoenix in my opinion.

    OOTP is my least favourite flick of the 8, but one of my favourite books out of the 7. I like Prisoner of Azkaban equally with OOTP among the books.

  • Nidorino Alliance
    Nidorino Alliance Year ago +3

    It's my most favourite. I think it has one of the most effective arcs for Harry in all of the movies, and I love the way it culminates: When he's fighting Voldemort in his mind. Other series might have found a scene like that to be corny or overly sentimental, but Harry Potter commits to it and it makes it work. It also contains a lot of my favourite scenes in the series, and I do think Sirius's death in it works tremendously. For me, this is the prefect culmination of the two tones of the series, and it has some excellent dark and lighter moments. My second favourite is Deathly Hallows Part 1.

    For everyone who wishes they were Harry Potter...

    Get raised by terrible people for almost 11 years
    Get bullied by a blonde kid
    Get almost choked by a guy who's got the man who killed your parents on the other side of his head
    Have people think he's secretly the heir of slytherin
    Get bitten by a giant snake
    Learn that one of his parents friends betrayed them
    Have dementora constantly attacking you
    Get attacked by huge spiders
    Ultimately cause the rebirth of lord Voldemort
    Get placed in a tournament that he's unprepared and not ready for
    Get attacked by a dragon
    Get attacked by sea creatures
    Get attacked by Voldemort
    See a fellow classmate/friend die
    Have the man who killed your parents reborn in front of you
    Have nightmares every night
    Get attacked by Voldemort in your mind
    Get tortured by toad face
    Have people not believe in you
    Have Voldemort attack your mind
    See the only family you have left killed
    See the man you trusted and were close to killed
    Get attacked by some weird ass lake people things
    Have to got out and destroy the horcruxes
    See your parents grave and destroyed house
    See the house elf who saved you and you grew to be close too die in your arms
    See friends and family attacked and killed
    The place you called home for so long gets destroyed
    Not to mention all the other people that died like moody
    And the most important one, not being able to kiSS EMMA WATSON

    Except in that weird horcrux vision...

  • FivebyFive FivebyFive

    Harry Potter and the Order Of The Phoenix, is my very favourite I think it breaches the topic of loneliness and knowing your not alone even when you think you are, really loved that. I love how even through the dark parts there are still people like Fred and George or Luna trying to fight back. I'm not sure why but when in films/books there's that dark depressed tone, then it starts getting better a slow trickling of light entering the dark I just love it. Even though the dark was still there continuing throughout the other films, it seemed that this film really made viewers and the characters and readers ready for what's to come.
