Harry Potter: Order of the Phoenix

I was glad that the non-conformist had not see the newest HP movie because I had someone to accompany me.  While I was glad to see the movie on the big screen, I felt sad at how many things were left out.  I know that it is impossible to capture all the nuisances and sub-plots, but I wanted to see more things developed on the big screen.  If I had not read the books, I probably would have thought it was a decent movie. I think my enjoyment of the films is tied in large part to my appreciation of the books.  Given the time and space limits, I thought that the movie was okay.

Which Screen:  Big screen to fully appreciate the special effects.  Small screen if that does not do it for you.
