Fun with Franchises: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007), Part III — “What the Fuck Is Limbo Mist?”

We continue with another entry in our Fun with Franchises series, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

In case you don’t know how this works — after doing a couple of trial runs without realizing it (Disney movies, Bond movies), I realized that I really enjoyed going through movies frame by frame, commenting on them and cracking jokes like I would if I was sitting around watching them with friends. So I decided to make it a feature on the site and enlisted my friend Colin to help (since it’s better when you have another person to play off). None of this is meant to be any real in-depth analysis. We’re just doing it for comedy and parody purposes. We’re basically just doing what we would normally when talking about this stuff, which I’m sure are versions of the same conversations most people have.

And of course, if you’re gonna do something called Fun with Franchises… you kinda have to franchise it. So we scribbled down a handful of franchises we knew we’d have the most fun going over, and that’s what you’re about to see. This is all done out of love and purely for the benefit of entertainment.

And that’s Fun with Franchises. Right now, we’re doing the Harry Potter franchise, and today is the third part of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - Title Card

We begin today walking through the castle…

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 759

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 760

They should have had him dance across the door frame like Hugh Grant in Love Actually.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 761

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 762

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 763

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 764

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 766

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 767

Neville’s found the Room of Requirement.

Which absolutely no one’s found this before in the franchise.

No one’s ever really needed a place to fuck before? I feel like everything in this franchise has “of Requirement” at the end of it.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 768

Also, very strangely, over this shot, we hear Hermione’s voiceover say, “You’ve done it, Neville. You’ve found the Room of Requirement,” as if he unlocked some sort of hidden bonus or something. I know they cut to all of them in the room, but the opening part of the line clearly sounds like ADR. I’m very good at spotting ADR in movies, and this line was HORRENDOUSLY ADR.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 769

Also, if you didn’t think this room was really the sex room, Hermione says it’s also known as the “Come and Go Room.”

Colin:

The funny part is that we say “come” and the Japanese slang term is “to go”…so when you sleep with a Japanese girl, you’re coming and she’s going. But Cho’s Chinese-Scottish. What were we talking about?

Foreign exchange rates.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 770

Colin:

Does it change once you’re in there? Could it turn into a shag pad all of a sudden if Harry and Cho got all hot and bothered in the middle of a lesson?

But also, what if you required a month’s worth of food and video games? Could they just stay in here and have no one find them?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 771

“It only appears when a person has real need of it.”

It’s the word ‘real’ that makes it annoyingly convenient. It’s also always equipped for the seeker’s needs.

I love that Ron is then like, “So say you really need to shit…” Because that’s where most of us would go with it.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 772

Lesson time.

Colin:

Look at this thing. It’s like a creepy wooden sex doll. Why is the target painted on poorly? They didn’t make it, I assume it’s just in the room. I guess someone ‘required’ a mannequin to practice spells on — they just didn’t ‘require’ one that didn’t reek of shoddy craftsmanship and slapdash painting.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 773

“Look at me. I am the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher now.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 774

“Expelliarmus!”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 775

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 776

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 777

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 778

Part of me wishes he got DiCaprio’d by that wand.

Another part of me is wondering how Neville managed to make it to his fifth year unable to do an Expelliarmus spell. Umbridge probably didn’t even need to change the curriculum if that’s how it is for most of them.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 779

“You’re just flourishing your wand too much.”

Really? That’s a thing? They’ve abandoned the wand movement thing since movie one. You’re gonna bring it up now? No. He’s a fuck up, and leave it at that.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 780

Also, given what we know, what a Sliding Doors moment this is, huh?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 781

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 782

So apparently that’s what it is? Expelliarmus is all over the place because sometimes they don’t do it correctly? It’s like the punting of magic? Sometimes you shank one, sometimes you don’t.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 783

Speaking of shanking…

“Copy this shit down. There’s no need to talk.”

Colin:

What in the fuck is ‘LIMBO MIST?’?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 784

“No need to think is more like it, you dumb cunt.”

“What was that?”

“I said you didn’t have to be so blunt.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 785

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 786

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 787

Colin:

Filch! He’s a ghost ghost ghost ghost ghost….

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 788

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 789

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 790

You’d think he’d know about the room by now.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 791

Harry’s gonna teach him the stunning spell.

“It’s sort of a wizard’s bread and butter, really.”

I was gonna argue with that, but it’s actually a fair point. Though if it is a wizard’s bread and butter, how come we’ve never seen you use it or even learn it before?

Colin:

He should really qualify the ‘wizard’ part. It’s HIS bread and butter. Everyone else seems to be content murdering and cursing.

I’ll say it again — Harry Potter never directly kills someone with a spell. Other people certainly do, even good guys. So you choose the spell that has no real use other than to immobilize your opponent — the Roofie of the wizarding world — to describe as a wizard’s bread and butter? Nice. Real nice. 

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 792

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 793

Yup.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 794

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 795

For a second I thought he was gonna do it to Nigel. How funny would it be if they just stunned the shit out of a second year for kicks?

Colin:

Let’s practice a spell that launches us into the air backwards. I’ll stand in front of the fire so you can see me clearly!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 796

BREAK YO SELF, FOOL!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 797

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 798

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 799

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 800

I feel like this spell could be used for fun in the right circumstances.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 801

Colin:

Noticed an error here. See the twins? They’re both wearing Gryffindor ties, but Padma’s a Ravenclaw. Padma (on the right) should have a tie like Cho’s. This is a consistent error in the films. They clearly didn’t think about it during filming, even though Padma has a Ravenclaw tie on for the promo photos. Oops.

You think they switched houses occasionally just to fuck with people?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 802

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 803

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 804

He just hit puberty.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 805

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 806

Ha ha ha. He had to make that himself.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 807

Oh my god, you’re right. This IS the movie that Harry fucks up his chances to get with Hermione.

Colin:

Guys, I was right about something! It doesn’t happen often, I just talk a lot.

I feel like that line should have been attributed to Ron.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 808

Ron says he’ll go easy on her.

“Thanks, Ronald.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 809

I love how she shakes her head as he walks away. Like, “This motherfucker don’t know what he’s in for.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 810

I love how she’s just aloof to everything.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 811

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 812

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 813

What the fuck was that about?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 814

Is that racist? I kind of want to think that’s racist.

Colin:

Grove Street for life! 

Nice little Black Power moment from Neville. Cause if any two guys here fit the “Black Power” image, it’s Ron and Neville.

Neville is the Ringo of this house.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 815

What actually makes you think you can outduel her?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 816

God damn, man. Look at her face. You have NO shot at this.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 817

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 818

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 819

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 820

Man, don’t you remember when she quick drawed a bunch of Cornish pixies? What the fuck did you think was gonna happen?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 821

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 822

Look at his stupid face.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 823

THIS REACTION IS PRICELESS.

I REALLY want to make a Harry Potter western. Oh my GOD would that be the greatest thing ever.

Colin:

The Man Who Shot Liberty Voldemort?

The Godric’s-Hollow Incident.

Unforgivable.

My Darling Hermione.

Dobby Unchained. As we’ve established.

Okay, one more…

The Assassination of Albus Dumbledore by the Coward Severus Snape.

Colin:

Ronny Guitar

Two Thestrals for Sister Luna

The Left Handed Wand

For a Few Knuts More

Duel in the Sun

Support Your Local Auror

The Weasley Bunch

There Was a Crooked Wand

3:10 to Hogwarts

McGonagall and Mrs. Miller

Buckbeak and the Preacher

The Ballad of Little Jo Rowling

The sad part is we literally could do this all day.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 824

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 825

Yeah, that’s about the proper reaction. Though I can’t tell if that’s him going “oooh” in embarrassment for Ron or him noticing Hermione for the first time.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 826

And his brothers bet on him. The joke being that one said he’d last a second and the other said, “You’re on,” and he’s the one that got paid, since the assumption was that he’d last longer than a second, meanwhile he was actually betting that he wouldn’t even get to a second. And this was all understood between them. That’s awesome.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 828

Colin:

Let’s just note how Hermione is now the darling of every non-Slytherin girl in the school. Everyone used to hate her. Go ahead and gloat, but none of this would be happening if Harry and Ron hadn’t saved you from that troll and become your friends. Seriously, if that hadn’t happened…remember the scenario from It’s A Wonderful Life with Jimmy Stewart’s wife if he’d never have been born? Yeah, that’s you without these two, Hermione. But still, you’re my favorite of the three, so we’ll let it pass.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 827

“I let her do that.”

Dean has the perfect “come on, buddy” look.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 829

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 830

I’m glad Filch has a moment to shine for once.

Colin:

He shines a lot. I seen him shining trophies and plaques and all kinds of shit. Yeah, you heard me.

Filch:

Motherfu….!!!!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 831

How bad do you think the House Elves have it under Umbridge? They completely cut SPEW out of the movies, so we’ll never know.

Mostly I’m asking because I thought to ask what the fuck he’s supposed to be doing now. But honestly, it’s Filch. He can do whatever he wants.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 832

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 833

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 834

I guess the room knew that they required another exit where Filch couldn’t see them?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 835

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 836

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 837

I like how it’s both a proclamation and a decree.

Colin:

10-82?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 838

Oh, what a lovely Tea Party. (See that? Layers.)

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 839

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 840

Levicorpus, motherfucker.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 841

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 842

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 843

Looks.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 844

Colin:

“A little higher. There you go. Daddy’s gonna help you wit dat grip.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 845

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 846

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 847

Colin:

Seriously, Harry, Cho looks good to go. Like for real, man — ask Neville if he has any gillyweed cause you’re gonna need some gills where you’re going. 

Pussytown?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 848

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 849

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 850

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 851

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 852

Colin:

Chocolates? For me? Waiting for me where I keep guard for suspicious activity? DON’T MIND IF I DO!

Isn’t it great how he holds the little chocolate up like Gollum holding the ring?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 853

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 854

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 855

Why would you go to her and not Madame Pomfrey?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 856

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 857

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 858

This is why they invented 3D.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 859

I hope she didn’t break one of her torture quills.

Wait… what did she break? Wizards don’t have pencils.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 860

So many things I could say about this shot. So many.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 861

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 862

How can anyone even read those?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 863

Is this like a Hitler Youth?

Colin:

Yes.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 864

Didn’t Mrs. Norris have red eyes in an earlier movie?

Colin:

Yes.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 865

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 866

What spell is that? Why are we even seeing this?

Also, where the fuck did Harry learn any of these spells? He only uses like three, ever.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 867

Colin:

Note that this new Inquisitorial Squad is all Slytherins. I’m pretty sure it should be decided that Slytherins never get to hold any authority position and that if they do, it’s a guarantee that the authority is illegitimate and/or evil.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 868

I like how they’re just Stupefying each other left and right.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 869

THWAP.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 870

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 871

Quite the subtext there, huh?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 872

Harry says every great wizard started out as a student, like them. “If they can do it, why not us?”

That works both ways, motherfucker.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 873

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 874

I support skipping.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 875

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 876

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 877

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 878

“Stupefy!”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 879

“Expelliarmus!”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 880

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 881

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 882

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 883

Right?

Or maybe we want to throw a beat on it.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 884

“Expelliarmus!” (It doesn’t have a wand anymore!)

Colin:

As I pointed out some time earlier, Harry has no business knowing that many more spells than anyone else. And if you notice, 99% of this montage is Expelliarmus, Stupefy and Levicorpus. That constitutes how many lessons?

Standard Book of Spells, Chapter Two.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 885

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 886

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 887

I mean, yeah, sure. But don’t they also have need of the Room of Requirement? It’s evil, and we don’t want them to get in, sure. But how does the room mediate whose need is greater?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 888

Aww, too bad.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 889

“Reducto!”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 890

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 891

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 892

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 893

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 894

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 895

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 896

Well goddamn, Ginny.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 897

That face.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 898

They’re all kinda turned on right now.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 899

“Yeah, I know.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 900

“It was nothing.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 901

And the fates are sealed.

Colin:

NOOOOOOOO!!!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 902

He doesn’t sound like he’s been teaching her well. She’s pretty timid on that Expelliarmus.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 903

This is one of those, “No, you’re doing great,” moments to the hot girl, even though she has no idea what the hell she’s doing.

Colin:

If only hot people — and it’s mostly hot girls — knew how many passes they got for being mediocre. If you’re hot, trust me, you’re terrible at more things than you think. We just don’t care.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 904

Oh, the things he’s gonna do to her later…

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 905

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 906

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 907

I love that this is the sign that they’re all ready. That Neville can do something. Motherfucker, we just SAW him do an Expelliarmus IN the montage!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 908

That’s the last lesson before the holidays.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 909

“Aww…”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 910

Really?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 911

“Keep practicing on your own as best you can.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 912

Are you fucking kidding me?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 913

Who are half of these fucking people? Is the idea that the group has grown since it started?

A lot of people are breaking the first rule of Fight Club.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 914

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 915

That guy is giving him the eye too.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 916

They’re already making plans to go fuck. YOU’RE LOSING YOUR CHANCE, HARRY!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 917

Oh, they’re totally gonna go fuck.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 918

Now’s your chance to use her dead boyfriend to get into her pants.

(Also, remember when the last movie didn’t tell you that they were dating at all? They just showed them at the ball together. The ball where nobody really took anyone they were dating. They just took the people they asked.)

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 919

“See you in the common room, Harry.”

“That all depends on how much Vitamin E I can get my hands on.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 920

Wow, they’re TOTALLY going to fuck. Oh my god. She’s openly telling him this, and he’s too preoccupied to notice.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 921

AND LOOK AT THAT GLANCE!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 922

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 923

Oh, yeah, and that one too.

Colin:

Of course we’d notice Ginny making that face NOW. I checked the book, and there’s NO mention of this whatsoever. Rowling doesn’t even mention Ginny’s name, let alone say that she’s looking aloof as Harry goes over to hang out with Cho. You can’t just start making stuff up, especially when it runs counter to the fact that Ginny Weasley is a ho.

I think she was looking aloof because she was paying attention and didn’t want him to see just how she felt about it.

But, you know, this is me, the writer, reading into it, since I am the person that expects people to fill in the gaps in their heads. So I support Rowling on this one. (JK.)

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 924

Colin:

“Hey, baby. I saw you over here bein’ Asian. Thought I’d say hello.”

I’m pretty sure they require a different type of room setup right now.

Also, you could totally get cockblocked by this room.

“Wait, why did a waterbed and handcuffs just appear? I thought we were just gonna talk?”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 925

I guess they didn’t require a clean mirror they could see into.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 926

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 927

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 928

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 929

Getting cockblocked by a dead guy.

Colin:

I never really got the picture thing. Do they all see what’s going on or are they caught in the moment the photo was taken? Sometimes they seem to leave the picture frame and go off to do other stuff — I’ve mentioned this before, but what do they do? Do they have lives? Is it like their day job to just be in the frame so real people can enjoy the picture? How sentient or lucid are the people in the pictures? It seemed like when Cho and Harry looked at Cedric’s picture, he made a cool kid face. So is he aware of what’s going on? If so, is the Cedric in the picture going to flip the fuck out in about five seconds when he witnesses what happens? How about Sirius Black’s picture in the paper? He’s yelling and screaming at everyone, including Harry, so it doesn’t look like the picture knows who it’s looking at.

Didn’t we have this discussion already? I forget. I’ll just reiterate my feelings on the matter, which are — pictures are taken in the moment and reflect that moment, and portraits are more of a living thing, where they do retain a sort of personality and can do what they want.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 930

She wonders if Cedric knew all this stuff.

You dated a guy for several months and don’t know if he knew how to use his wand?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 931

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 932

“Oh, he TOTALLY did.”

Of course that’s what you’d say.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 933

“He was really good. It’s just – Voldemort was better.”

Maybe not the right thing to say.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 934

Unless it’s “Voldemort was better than Cedric, and I fought Voldemort, and I’m still here so, *zip*!”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 935

“You’re a really good teacher, Harry.”

Colin?

Colin:

As someone who’s had considerable experience with Asian ladies…I have to say pretty much the same thing that Ferris Bueller says about the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California: They’re so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 936

“I’ve never been able to stun anything before.”

No comment.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 937

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 938

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 939

“Mistletoe.”

Well it’s sure as shit not poison sumac.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 940

Which one of them required that first?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 941

“Probably full of Nargles, though.”

I feel like this is an insult you direct at someone. Like, “Her snatch is probably full of Nargles.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 942

“What are Nargles?”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 943

“Oh, you’ll be finding out soon, baby. You’ll be finding out soon.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 944

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 945

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 946

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 947

RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE DEAD GUY!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 948

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 949

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 950

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 951

Colin:

Ooooooooooooh baby, I like yo jawline! Seriously, I like her more than I should. Mostly cause this franchise is a bunch of weird looking white people in robes. She’s worth looking at. She make this look good. Mm. God damn. I don’t have anything specific left to say, but this is pretty much my high point for the franchise, so I want to savor it.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 952

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 953

How many takes you think they did of this?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 954

“Well, how was it?”

Shouldn’t he be asking you two that?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 955

“Wet. I mean, she was sort of crying…”

He’s just described every sexual experience I’ve ever had :(

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 956

“That bad at it, are you?”

:(

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 957

Reactions.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 958

“I’m sure Harry’s kissing was more than satisfactory.”

There’s still a chance!

Also, what a friend.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 959

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 960

I love the nod. “Yes. It was satisfactory. There.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 961

“Cho spends half her time crying these days.”

Really? Because we’ve never seen it. And I’m not sure how Hermione would have.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 962

“You’d think a bit of snogging’d cheer her up.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 963

“Yeah… you would…”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 964

“Don’t you understand how she must be feeling?”

No. She initiated the mistletoe.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 965

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 966

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 967

None of them know.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 968

“Well, obviously she’s feeling sad about Cedric, and therefore confused about liking Harry, and guilty about kissing him, conflicted because Umbridge is threatening to sack her mom from her job at the Ministry (Note: They do all work there, don’t they?), and frightened of failing her OWLs because she’s so busy worrying about everything else.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 969

“One person couldn’t feel all that. They’d explode.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 970

“Just because you’ve got the emotional range of a teaspoon…”

Colin:

Yes, Hermione, your explanation of female emotions was ridiculous. Let us all laugh. Oh. She actually looks kinda evil here.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 985

Not gonna lie, this was actually one of my favorite moments in the entire franchise. I’ve already said how I like it when they work in these shots, but here they make it a big deal later on at the end of the film. It just feels like a really nice moment that happened to be captured on film (even though I know it was completely scripted).

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 986

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 987

Jerking off again.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 988

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 990

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 991

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 992

SNAKE ATTACK!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 994

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 995

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 996

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 997

Well damn. That’s dark.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 999

Colin:

How hilarious would it be if he woke up from this dream covered in jizz?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 998

 

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1000

YEAH! MAGGIE’S GOT HER HAIR DOWN!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1001

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1002

“In the dream, were you standing next to the victim, or looking down at the scene?”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1003

“Neither. It was like I was – Professor, will you just tell me what’s happened?”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1004

“Everard, Arthur’s on guard duty tonight. Make sure he’s found by the right people.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1005

Colin:

Do paintings follow different rules than photos? The Fat Lady has a full-on personality and everything, and these paintings can talk and run errands. PLEASE EXPLAIN, JK LOL

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1006

There’s only one part of this shot that caught my attention.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1007

“Tell them that Arthur Weasley is gravely injured.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1008

We find out Arthur’s okay and will make it. And “the Dark Lord failed to acquire it.”

I know it’ll be explained, so I’m not that mad at how this is being handled.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1009

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1010

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1011

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1012

“Look at me!”

(His liver is FUCKED!)

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1013

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1014

Was that supposed to be the Voldemort bleeding effect or is that just his inner feelings taking over aggressively?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1015

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1016

“What’s happening to me?”

Wow, this moment is better than I remembered. I was gonna make a puberty joke, but this is actually legit.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1017

“You rang?”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1018

“It can’t wait. Even til the morning. Otherwise, we’ll all be vulnerable.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1019

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1020

This is how it looked when you were six and made a scene at the supermarket.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1021

What kind of fucked up shit is gonna go on in THAT dungeon?

Colin:

These stairs look like an Omastar.

For some reason that just made me think of an Omastairmaster.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1022

“It appears there is a connection between the Dark Lord’s mind and your own.”

Look at that wine. ’53?

Oh, sorry, important stuff happening.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1023

“Whether or not he is aware of this connection is, at the moment, unclear.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1024

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1025

Holy shit. He’s like the Winston Wolf of Hogwarts.

Harry Potter TV series idea: The Winston Wolf of Hogwarts.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1026

“Pray he remains ignorant.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1027

“You mean, if he knows about it, he’ll be able to read my mind?”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1028

“Read it, control it, unhinge it.”

Symmetry in the back.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1029

“In the past, it was often the Dark Lord’s pleasure to invade the minds of his victims, creating visions designed to torture them into madness.”

Was it just Battlefield Earth played over and over?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1030

He’s always sweaty around the collar and nowhere else.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1031

“Only after extracting the last exquisite ounce of agony, when he had them literally begging for death, would he finally kill them.”

He sounds fun.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1032

Snape is gonna teach him Occlumency, which can shield his mind from this.

So Snape actually is the most qualified Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher they have.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1033

“I will attempt to penetrate your mind. You will attempt to resist.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1034

Colin:

Brain Rape Lessons with Professor Snape!

Does he say “Legitimate” here? Is that what the spell is?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1035

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1036

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1037

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1038

Well there’s a freeze frame.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1039

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1040

Look at Macaulay Culkin.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1041

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1042

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1043

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1044

“Concentrate, Potter.”

On the one hand, he didn’t really tell him how to defend himself, but on the other, that is technically what the exercise is all about. But on the other, how is he supposed to learn what to do and do it if he’s not even given a heads up first? Or is the power of occlumency just concentration? Like, “No, this is definitely not okay,” and then it’s okay again. Is the removal of consent the way to overcome this?

Maybe some rules, is all I’m asking for.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1045

I feel like if this room caught fire it would not end well.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1046

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1047

So that must’ve been a long night.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1048

I got visited by three spirits last night, trying to find logic in that last scene. Jim Beam, Jonny Walker and Jack Daniels. (It was a three-fifths compromise.)

Colin:

I love that. Also, I’m drinking Suntory Whiskey at the moment. Relaxing times, and such.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1049

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1050

How come they’re not at the Burrow for this movie, yet go back when things get even more dangerous next year?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1051

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1052

Arthur’s back. And he looks thrilled to be here.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1053

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1054

Colin:

“And a nice big box on Ginn– a nice big box for Ron!”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1055

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1056

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1057

Colin:

It’s cool how you see the twins swap their presents.

Just like their women.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1058

Accurate.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1059

So Hermione’s just not gonna see her parents this year?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1060

He doesn’t have any parents.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1061

Oldman!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1062

What’s that giant purple sex rope on the table there?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1063

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1064

Nice threads.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1065

A toast to Harry.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1067

Na Zdorovie!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1066

Where’s the rest of the Order? You mean to tell me Mad Eye’s got a family to go home to?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1068

Colin:

I didn’t cover part of the scene because I have a glass of wine right now and I just raised it and drank without even thinking. Gotta watch out for people proposing toasts in movies, cause if I’m drinking at the time, I ALWAYS do it with them. This is why I try to not drink while watching The Thin Man.

I just create my own toasts. I toast my next sip a lot.

Colin:

Hey, this is fun. The first time through, I was drinking wine. This time doing editing, I’m having Suntory Whiskey. Readers should know that these two instances were about two weeks apart, but who gives a shit? Booze.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1069

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1070

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1071

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1072

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1073

Colin:

WINK! Booze.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1074

Yeah, we all know that one. Sneaking off during family gatherings for 25-33 minutes.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1075

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1076

What’s in this room?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1077

Kreacher feature.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1078

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1079

“Kreacher, shut the fuck up! I know it was you, I ain’t even gotta look!”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1080

“Sorry about that.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1081

This was his parent’s house. He gave it to Dumbledore to use for the Order. “About the only useful thing I’ve been able to do.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1082

The Black family tree.

Aren’t they theoretically eventually gonna run out of wall space?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1083

The burned out faces I assume means disowned and not dead.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1084

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1085

His mother did that when he ran away.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1086

“Charming woman.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1087

“I was sixteen.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1088

Harry asks where he went. He says, “To your dad’s.” He was always welcome at the Potters’.

Do we ever find out what happened to Harry’s grandparents?

“I see him so much in you, Harry. You are so very much alike.”

But he has his mother’s eyes, though, right?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1089

Harry’s not so sure.

“When I saw Mr. Weasley attacked, I wasn’t just watching.”

He was masturbating.

“I was the snake.”

What did I say?

“And afterwards, in Dumbledore’s office, there was a moment when I wanted to–”

Too easy.

“This connection between me and Voldemort. What if the reason for it is that I am becoming more like him? I just feel so angry all the time. And what if, after everything that I’ve been through, something’s gone wrong inside me? What if I’m becoming bad?”

This could all be made so much easier if Dumbledore just, you know, said what he thought was happening.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1090

“I want you to listen to me very carefully, Harry. You’re not a bad person. You’re a very good person that bad things have happened to.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1091

“Besides, the world isn’t split into good people and Death Eaters. We’ve all got both light and dark inside of us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are.”

Colin:

We both have both light and dark in us? Like…a turkey? Or a jedi?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1092

Time to go. (Go where?)

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1093

He was just walking the parapet.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1094

“When all this is over, we’ll be a proper family.”

Guess it depends on your definition of ‘proper’.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1095

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1096

It’s fucked up because you know he’s dead right there.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 1097

And this is where we’ll END PART III.

– – – – – – – – – –

Tomorrow is Part IV, and more of Dumbledore’s Army. Which is a shame for all the Dumbledore’s Navy and Dumbledore’s Air Force people out there.
