Re: Which Film Is The Darkest?

Order of the PHoenix, though, has a cold, somber tone throughout, and it's the least "fun" of the bunch.
I agree. I've always thought that Order of the Phoenix represents the darkest time for Harry with the influence of Voldemort's mind meddling, occlumency, the Umbridge factor, what the prophecy means for Harry, etc. There are dark elements to Prisoner of Azkaban, Goblet of Fire and Half-Blood Prince, but overall I feel Order of the Phoenix is the darkest film so far.

People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff...
