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

Crazy good graphics and I love the battle of hogwarts

Too cinematic and does not have enough time to service the beloved cast and characters we see for the last time. Despite this, it is action-packed, has entertaining moments and some iconic ones, but ultimately, it isn't the most engaging Harry Potter film in the franchise.

2 Harry 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!

My order is

Movie/book 3

Movie/book 5

Movie 7

Movie 8

Movie/book 1

Movie/book 6

Movie /book 4

Movie/book 2

I have watched this movie over 100 times

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!

3 Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

The only reason I liked this was because of the music

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.

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!

This is the best book and the... well it's JUST AMAZING!

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

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"

It had a blue background.

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.

6 Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

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

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.

I'm so sorry to y'all who love this movie, but it is so boring! All the other movies are so amazingly made, with the best effects and it is worth more than a million bucks or pounds wherever you live.
I couldn't watch the beginning. I love the dementor and other effects but really. I wanna see the main characters in the beginning, not London. Hopefully others will see my point of view cause they should redo this movie.

7 Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Don't forget it will be on ITV this weekend.

One of my favourite movie of all time!

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.

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!

"I love watching two awkward male actors sitting on a beach for 3 hours! " - krpele10

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

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.

9 Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

This is not a harry potter movie - MrZebra24

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

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.

Finally a movie about my house! ~

Its actually very good.

Amazing film. - girlcool
