I saw Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix yesterday with Spike and I really liked it. I thought it was a great movie, and I thought what it managed to hack out of that long 5th book is actually probably the most relevant plot-threads vis-a-vis the 7th book. Ah, fascism, the perennial vice of the British. The only place the filmmakers may have shot themselves in the foot, I think, is not showing all of the scene from "Snape's Worst Memory," but I suppose they could fix that later. Although it's a good thing they took JKR's advice and kept Kreacher. But yeah, a really good movie, really fast-paced, I liked it. And the way they played up Sirius' role was good. Although Gary Oldman seemed way saner and more mature than Sirius does in the book, I think, and I picture Tonks way prettier and less buxom. Many hearts to Michael Gambon for his portrayal of Dumbledore, although he's not the way I picture him from the book, and personally I wouldn't have minded more of that scene with Harry in his office at the end.

In other news, I'm going to Boston tomorrow. Wish me luck with that. And in other news, I made a Code Geass video. And in still other news, more than a year later, the scanlation group I work with has finally released something I translated: Yu no Hana Tsubame chapter 1. Personally it made my skin crawl, but the head of the group tells me it's supposed to be hilarious. So if you are interested, head over to Be With You Scan's homepage.
