Best Harry Potter Movies

The Top Ten

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 Product Image

My personal list
8. Order of the Phoenix - based on my favorite book but this one is the one I watch the least, not bad though with a great musical score
7. Sorcerer's Stone - the lightest in the series and most kid-friendly
6. Chamber and Secrets - darker and more magical than the original
5. Goblet of Fire - now we're getting to the great movie, this one is complex, exiting, and shows the young cast's maturity
4. Deathly Hallows Part 1 - intense action and tension between characters saves this one from taking out important parts from the book
3. Half Blood Prince - best cinematography, best humor, and it also is the one with teenage hormones
2. Prisoner of Azkaban - it's all about the storytelling and direction, this one can tell a complex story in an easy-to-follow way and has crowd-pleasing climax, this one is a worthy entry in Alfonso cuoron's winning streak
1. Deathly Hallows Part 2 - intense action, acting, visual effects, score, this movie has ...more

If only Emma Watson (voice of Hermoine Granger) voiced Princess Daisy from Mario (who will be 5'7" & 121 lbs to 10'10" & 198 lbs, with her respective English accent, Rupert Grint (voice of Ron Weasley) voiced Diddy Kong who will stay 5'7" & 135 pounds) & Daniel Radcliffe (voice of Harry Potter) voiced Capcom's Mega Man (who will become 5'2" & 120 lbs to 6'0" & 189 lbs) & there was a Harry Potter series about Harry, Hermoine & Ron's children shown at the end of the movie Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 which ROCKED AROUND 182%!

I love this movie because everything just falls into place! The drama is intense and the action is satisfying. I love all the books and this just adds to the greatness that is... Harry Potter.
All movie makers should look to this film and take a hint that nothing is better than it.
I also love the 19 years later bit!
Catch you later harry potter fanatics.

This is an amazing movie. Everything was amazing and there were so many tear jerking moments and it is so bittersweet. My favourite movie of all time!

3. Deathly Hallows Part 1
4. Order of the Phoenix
5. Half Blood Prince
6. Goblet of Fire
7. Philosophers Stone
8. Chamber of Secrets
I love them all though

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Product Image

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 movie is beautiful! Amazing suspense, Superb cinematography with high quality writing and entertainment. This movie changed ths serues to a more darker and mature theme. Best Harry Potter movie ever even better than the last one. Alfonso Curran is a genius!

I always thought goblet of fire was the best Potter movie but I have to say this one because of the VIBE you get.. I mean the legendary and iconic expecto patronum scenes alone makes the movie the best! Also the perfect book to movie adaptation! Another reason why it is the best for me is the Harry-Hermione relationship on the whole time traveler scene which can also be seen in HP 7.1 where both of them are again together without Ron!

The year 2004 produced some of my favorite movies of all time. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is one of them. This movie took 75 steps up from the original two by making it a more darker but more humorous sequel. The directing was better, the acting was better, the story was better, hell, even the Uncle Vernon scenes were better. Not only is this the best Harry Potter film, but one of the best films ever.

I voted to comment
So I actually hate this move 1 they cut out the quidditch World Cup. Cut out the mystery aspect. And the director was an idiot he hadn’t read 1 2 or 3 read 200 pages of 4. And apparently he planned to burn down the forbidden forest in the frist task.
Which wasn’t even in the book

I personally did not like this movie at all because it was just bad. And honestly kind of scary like in the maze, Victor Krum's eyes. It is my least favorite movie and book.

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.

This is my second favourite film of all time and my favourite Harry Potter movie. Everything about this is brilliant. They main characters actually portrayed more teenage characteristics (messy hair, constant rivalry.) The plot is solid and very much enjoyable, this also happened to be the last HP before the series became more focused on Voldemort, don't get me wrong, the other movies are brilliant, but this movie gave me just the right amount of Voldemort I feel was needed. Also, who could forget how epic watching the triwizard tournament was?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Product Image

Take to much out of the book chamber of secrets is longer than this at least for the film yet order of the Phoenix has 2and 1/2 more pages. But the visuals that they did especially Dumbledore vs Voldemort

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!

Good graphics, character evolution. Also the introduction of bellatrix lestrange and Dolores Umbridge. and not to forget the amazing duel at the end between Dumbledore and Voldemort which is by far the best in the entire franchise.
Dumbledores army was a fitting touch which got us interested in the characters such as Neville and Seamus as well as giving us a more in depth look at the patronus charm which played a major role in the much loved 3rd movie.
Great battle at the department of misteries. The fear of Voldemort was ever present.
8/10 from me. Maybe a 9.
I don't see why you guys would put the goblet of fire above the order of the phoenix. The goblet of fire was a great spectacle and will always be one of my favourites but Harry Potter and the order of the phoenix really captured what Harry Potter is all about. Vote

Okay so I wasn't a huge fan of most of the movie, but I LOVE the part at the end at the Department of Mysteries
oh and Harry and Cho's kiss, pretty intense for a first kiss, tbh

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Product Image

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.

If your house don't have a strong base, no matter how beautiful your house is, it will fall down. So was this movie. If this movie (or book )wasn't so good, none of the other books or movies would have been read / watched by people. It's basically a foundation upon which all other books depends. It did a great job in introduction of the magical wizarding world

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.

JK Rowling biggest regret allowing Americans to use Sorcerer's Stone. Lets think of American titles that could've been used for the others. 2- Dark Chamber 3. Escaped Prisoner 4. Sport and Tournaments 5. Voldemort's back 6. Potion book 7. Hogwarts Battle.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Product Image

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).

Most underrated film in the series, a great watch and has a genuinely compelling mystery, not to mention that incredible final battle with the Basilisk! There are films better than this one in the franchise but it should 110% not be bottom.

This movie tries to cram everything from the book in which results in a 161 minute movie and a total mess. It's a huge setback after a mediocre (if we get over the fact it's the original) beginning to the films. It should not be no 6

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

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Product Image

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.

order of the phoenix was terrible, the result of taking the longest harry potter book and making it into the shortest harry potter movie. how is it ahead of this hilariously fun to watch movie?

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.

The fact that this is so low here (behind order of the phoenix actually) and so high on the worst potter filmÂ's list tell me that people may just expect an action film be all about battles and fire cracks everywhere (as the two films before this one). that's NOT the measure of an action filmÂ's quality. A great action film has to have every action scene very well justified with a backstory, plot and be in coherence with each characterÂ's motivations. When a film manages to have thrilling action balanced with this factors then you got a really badass movie, which, despite having only a few action scenes, this film managed masterfully. Quality over quantity. And this is perhaps the most quality film of all the Potter films.

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!

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.

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.

This movie is very underrated because it is seen as the "less exciting" portion of the book. However, despite the awesome ending, I still think the suspense held me in this movie more than many others. As a standalone movie (not considering part 2), this is my second favorite next to Azkaban.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Product Image

It's actually really good and tells a really good story. Newt Scamander is a really realistic character along with the setting. It may not count but it's my favourite

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

This is not a harry potter movie

It's gonna be good

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Product Image

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

Well that doesn't mean it ain't good

Its actually very good.
