Best Harry Potter Movies

The Top TenXW

1Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2

Saw it two days ago and it was astounding! A terrific ending to an unforgettable series. I can't imagine there being a better film than this any time soon. - BKAllmighty

This movie was freaking intense! Made my heart beat as fast as chuck norris running on steroids. I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. Thank god we have hands, in case I'd have to bend down to put the snacks in my mouth and take my eyes off the screen...

I know this is gonna be EPIC, I can just feel it... How else do you think such a phenomenal series will end? It'll be the greatest movie ever, I know it will be! Just wait and watch...

The 19 years later part makes me tear up

2Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

This is my favourite and I don't really know why I just love the whole thing with Sirius and the whole time turner thing! I'm in the middle of the book as well and am really enjoying it! I also love Tom Felton and he gets a bigger part in this which I was really happy about! I love you too Rupert!

This is the best:
1Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
2Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2
3Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1
4Harry potter and the goblet of fire
5Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
6Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
7Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
8 ( last but not least) Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - Still Good, The spider bit is awesome.

The best movie ever seen in my life. Must see this rocking movie! This movie rocks! But still can't say that harry potter and the half blood prince is the worst it's good and also harry potter and the order of the Phoenix is still good as half blood prince but harry potter and the prisoner of Azkaban is the best than comes order of the Phoenix and then goblet of the fire.

Best soundtrack: A Window to the Past

3Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

best harry potter film with great animations and emma watson looks gorgeous but deathly hallows is also good

The Goblet For Fire is better than all the others put together. It's the only one that has proper elements of real, historical fantasy, and it's the most epic one, and THAT scene in the graveyard..

This is the best. It's full of exit end and adventure. At the end it shows Harry doing a final act of kindness. Something I don't think any other character in the entire series would do. He gave his money and work from the tournament to Fred and George. Boys who are less wealthy. He did it with no request just honest intention. I admire that.

Very nice movie

4Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Although it may not have as much action as the others, it has everything I love. It has action but also has the happiness in it every movie needs. Quidditch is also a nice thing to see how great of a wizard Harry really is.

I remember watching this as a kid I really enjoyed and still do to date so its my favourite Harry potter movie of all time! - roblist

The first two were so magical and charming. They're all great but the original duology ruled. - BKAllmighty

Excellent start of the franchise it introduces everyone to the franchise. One of the best. Different from the others

5Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

I really liked this film, it was by far for me the best film of the franchise (tied with Deathly Hallows Part 2). My favourite character is Dumbledore, and considering this film more than any other shows the relationship between Harry and Dumbledore, I found it particularly amusing to watch. Dumbledore's farewell to me is the most moving part of the entire series. - jamesmacgregor

I do agree that this one should be last, because the director put way too much emphasis on the romance instead of the main idea of the horcruxes and the memories. It wasn't a bad movie, it just went off the main topic too much.

Not a surprise that this movie was a total disappointment as there was nothing much in the book as well. But Yates dissappointed his viewers even more when he even missed out those parts from the book which could have made it a better movie.

In the book, Harry rescued Dumbledore till Hogwarts at the climax. However, in the movie Dumbledore rescued Harry to Hogwarts. Perhaps, Yates forgot that Harry had to face the Dark Lord in the next movie and that for that he should have portrayed a stronger character of Harry... Much more than a mere school boy. He even missed out the battle between the Death Eaters and the Order of Phoenix and also Dumbledore's Funeral and laid much stress on unnecessary emotinal aspects of the book. - Yatin

Deserves a top 3 spot but not first

6Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

I get that people don't like it cause it is the least loyal to the book. But if they included everything it would be overlong and full of pointless scenes. As a stand alone movie, I really don't see much wrong with it. The characters are maturing and it has a good story. Not to mention it has a good villain, Delores Umbridge. It's probably my 2nd favorite. VOTE PEOPLE!

Best one! It introduces Luna & Nymphadora Tonks, two of my favourite characters, and you really feel that the good days are over.

Best movie in the Harry Potter's by a mile. I love the whole the thing and the fight at the end between the order and the death eaters. Also I'm in the middle of the book and really enjoying it.

That was always my favorite!

7Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Chamber of Secrets stays true to the book. It incorporates all of the key storytelling elements in smooth pacing so that even someone who has never read the books can enjoy it. We also get our first, real sense of the lingering darkness of wizarding world and the new tone is noticeable and profound.

This is the Harry Potter movie in which the acting is best, from the tense exchanges between Lucius Malfoy and Arthur Weasley / Albus Dumbledore to Professor McGonagall's explanation of the origin of the Chamber of Secrets. The dialogue is clear, direct, and powerful--not like in subsequent films where everyone just yells and talks at an accelerated pace.

The film does suffer a bit from a few odd directing choices, notably the downplay of some of the more violent scenes and a poor representation of the Sword of Gryffindor. Still, the pluses outweigh the minuses more so than any other film in the franchise (except maybe Order of the Phoenix).

The best film I think. The exact same movie as the book. I liked the mystery of this film. It radiates and makes us wonder

And its got dobby in it too telling harry not to go back to Hogwarts because he will be in danger but somehow he didn't listen laugh out loud

It's cliched and don't is borderline jar jar binks

8Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1

The genius of the Harry Potter films and books is the way the characters grow with the audience, and with this, the darkness of the story. I think an element of the Potter films that is overlooked because of the 'kids film' label, is the darkness. Deathly Hallows P1 is a very dark movie, as dark as any adult fantasy film (LoTR etc), and it should be appreciated on this level. For me, this is the best of the series.

I think this is the most underrated movie in the franchise. I've always liked it because I feel like it tries to do something different than the other films. In each of the first six there's always that moment of comic relief, but deathly hallows- part one is probably the most unrelentingly dark movie in the franchise. It just felt so real to me. I also love the o' children where Harry and Hermione dance together. It's one of my favorite movie scenes of all time. Makes me want to get every time.

This is so much better than the other movies, it really has moments that truly capture the essence of the human condition.

The story is great but it's a little boring occasionally
