Best Harry Potter Movies

The Top Ten

1 Harry 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

I agree it is kinda sad because it is the end of the books I like watching the battle of Hogwarts it was sad because Fred Tonks lupin Colin dobby bellatrix died

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...

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...

2 Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Best story. Best pacing. Best cinematography. Gary Oldman as Sirius Black was a welcome addition to the cast. This movie benefitted from being a smaller personal story instead of raising the stakes like the Chamber of Secrets did. Alfonso Cuaron's direction made this third installment in the series it's own character. The three main characters really came out in this story as their acting improved. It's probably the movie that respected its source material more than all the others.

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!

My order is

Movie/book 3

Movie/book 5

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.
(I STILL LIKE IT OK)

3 Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Why didn't they have Percy Weasley in Goblet of Fire.
They could've had Roger Lloyd Pack who played Barty Crouch Sr called Percy Weasley "Weatherby" it would've worked.
Have you ever heard of the sitcom Only Fools and Horses Roger Lloyd Pack played a character called Trigger who called Rodney Trotter "Dave" in every episode.

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

I just put Dumbledores reaction to the Harry's name put into the Goblet in the movie as shock. It was just sudden.
Yeah he was calm in the book but the movie was shock.

Um ok no. NO NO No! This movie was the worst, not at all like the book.

4 Harry 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!

How did Cho grass on Dumbledore's Army when she was making a Patronus at the same time.
They should've casted a Marietta Edgecombe.

This is the best one of the lot voldemort vs dumbeldore fight - GregoryHallbot

I've watched this movie so many times! It's the best one. It's true to the book (unlike some of Prisoner of Azkaban) and very exciting. It introduces great characters and highlights the best in returning characters. Harry's teaching his colleagues what he's learned from people like Dumbledore and Lupin, Ron is improving his skills as a wizard, Hermione's braver than ever and breaking Umbridge's rules, Ginny is finding her insane amount of talent, and Neville now has loads of courage racing through his veins! I love this movie!

5 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

When I want to add Philosophers Stone to the list why does Sorcerer's Stone dvd cover appear at the side.
It has a blue background, On the only face and neck is Harry you can see more of the bodies of the others. Hogwarts and Hedwig in the background. Hagrid just behind Harry with the lamp he holds when he takes the first years to the boats. The train underneath him.
Floating candles in front of Hogwarts, Dumbledore in front of the candles, Hermione holding books in front of Dumbledore, Ron next to Hermione and Snape and McGonagall next to Hermione and Ron. McGonagall next to the train.

No Nicholas Flamel who was a real person who tried to make a Philosophers stone would've been killed trying to make a "Sorcerer's Stone"

I chose a video game, because the movie was Sorcerers Stone.
Philosopher's Stone looks different and even has a blue background like the game.

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.

6 Harry 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

Not my favorite, but it makes me laugh the whole time! Really like Harry and Hermione in this one

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

7 Harry 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).

My list
1. harry potter and the chamber of secrets
2. harry potter and the sorcerer stone
3. harry potter and the deathly hollows part 2
4. harry potter and the half-blood prince
5. harry potter and the prisoner of Azkaban
6. harry potter and the goblet of fire
7. harry potter and the order of the phoenix
8. harry potter and the deathly hollows part 1

For me this movie is the best because it has so many memes, such as Lockhart's whole character, "Good one, Goyle", and Mrs. Weasley's Howler.

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

8 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1

This was by far the best movie of the 8. The first was the exploration, so everything is awesome and new. The second was meh, because of the mediocre book. The 3rd film was well-balanced and well written, but missed some wizard flavour and detail in my opinion. The 4th and 5th were too compressed to be good. The 6th is a hidden gem, but this one, ooh, so full of impression and expression combined. The toughness and pain, loneliness, the search for the impossible, the brilliant scenes, making the best of the worst, all fits well in this one. The 8th movie was just a complete deception after this masterpiece. It felt too rushed, while the storytelling was in the movie itself.

P.S. Nick Cave is always a +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.

To me, this the most faithful entry in the franchise in its entirety, it has so many Potter elements from books that haven't been that much present, also the dynamic between the main Trio is much more real, closer, intimate, and intense
The cinematography and aesthetics are beautiful (The Dean Forest is stunning), and has great battle sequences, stakes and magical lore and atmosphere - Enmanu16

9 Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

If this movie removes dragon challenge then I won't go to universal, put the movie is unique in my opinion

This is not a harry potter movie - MrZebra24

It's gonna be good

Oh my god I loved this movie so much! It is better than all of the harry potters combined and multiplied by ten!

10 Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

It's the only wizarding world movie that I have gotten to see in theaters because I'm so young. I loved the feeling of sitting there with my friend and going back to Hogwarts.

Its gonna be bloated and overstuffed, I won't watch it - Enmanu16

Well that doesn't mean it ain't good

Its actually very good.
