Worst Harry Potter Movies

Honestly, I love all the Harry Potter movies. But some of them I didn't like as much as others.

The Top Ten

1 Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Just like the book, it's mean-spirited. And I hate things that are mean-spirited

Look Don't get me wrong I don't hate the movie the only thing that I dislike is I hated when Sirius died come on that is so Horrible he was like the father Harry never had and he got killed death didn't seem to scare Sirius but I still did not like it

I love the book a lot but the movie really ruined it. They added extra boring stuff and took away all the good things, like Harry meeting Hermione, Luna, and Rita in a pub.

Apart from Sirius's death I have nothing against the movie it's actually fine

2 Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

This one is ridiculously boring.

Definitely the most boring. This along with deathly hallows part 2 are the worst.

Worst movie I have ever seen, I think Harry Potter and the Order Of The Phoenix is better than this boring movie. I almost fell alseep that I watched half of the movie.

The reason why it is this high is because there wasn't an awesome showdown with Voldemort at the end. - mtndew37

3 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1

Yo this movie was 98% love 2% action. First of all, Ron, you should know your seeing things when your best friend is kissing Hermione, plus there in some dark woods! Ever think of that Ron! The only action is the first part and Dobby's Death. I think this is worst. Sorcerers stone was a classic and great! And don't get me wrong in Order of the Pheonix Sirius Black Death and Department of Mysteries was cool. I like Order of the Pheonix but not the best. This is the worst. 1. Deathly Hallows Part 1...2. Half Blood, 3. I have know idea because the rest are so good! Sorcerers Stone, Goblet of Fire, Part 2 Deathly Hallows, and... Wait. Why am I doing this. Half Blood and Deathly Hallows are just bad. Others Good! I hope you got my point people!

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE the harry potter movies, but I personally didn't like this one. I went with my friends to see it and we were all so excited. But it was so so boring honestly, most boring harry potter movie I've ever seen! And I really like the other ones. Stuck with the plot but still, very boring - dragonfly99

Terrible; NO ACTION worst movie by far I absolutely hate it. Also, why is order of the Phoenix voted worst, It's epic and in my opinion the best!

This movie was boring. Ron was absolutely insufferable throughout, Hermione was useless and it was mostly just all of them sitting around being miserable in a tent.

4 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

The crappy name the Yanks gave to the first Harry Potter.
It's really Philosophers Stone.
Which in real history there was Nicholas Flamel who tried tried to make a Philosopher's Stone.
JK Rowling didn't invent the Philosopher's Stone.

Obviously because it's the Sorcerer's Stone movie. that's the worst movie. Lets dumb down a book and movie. Even in the book I read that there is some American English. Dumbing it down.
I have read American books with American English.

For some reason I hated this so so much!

I liked this movie a lot! I thought it stayed true to the book and didn't skip out on anything. However, it wasn't filmed as well as the other movies. There were a few mistakes, but every movie has those.

5 Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

It's not really my favorite I'm still reading the book and I think the book is way better than the movie so far the goblet of fire Movie is my least favorite Movie of the Harry Potter Series I don't loathe it it's just not my favorite movie

Goblet of fire is the worst out of all 8 movies it was actually boring Cedric dying for no good reason people acting mean to Harry because they think he put his name in the goblet of fire the whole thing with Barty crouch jr killing his own father molly sending Ron a dress and making him look stupid at the yule ball sending Harry to the Dursley's when he could have spent the whole summer with the Weasleys instead of one day that is all the reasons why Goblet of fire is the worst movie in the Harry potter series

Pacing hell. The dragon scene's most indicative, going on far too long at the expense of other, richer, material. But that problem runs all the way through it. It always falls back on the least interesting aspects and bloats them like there's no tomorrow.

I like this movie. I really liked the showdown between Harry and Voldemort. - mtndew37

6 Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

I really liked this movie for some reason, I loved the Snake scene at the end, - mtndew37

I love the Basilisk and the final fight but asides from that I just found something lacking compared to the other movies, the same goes for the book as well.

This is the scariest, stupidest, and most depressing of them all. It definitely deserves number 1! The fact that almost all the other amazing movies are ahead of this disgusts me! Whoever made this retarded list is an idiot!

Order of the Phoenix is much better than this movie. The special effects are horrible; I knew Dobby was fake the second I saw him. Also, the acting is worse than the first movie. I hated the scene where Dobby saves Harry from Lucius Malfoy, because the spell effect was horrible and it was stupid.

7 Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

If I had to grade the movie it would get a B+

This was the best movie as I think it followed the books guidelines more than any other movie and personally the fifth is the worst as it didn't explain much and missed out most of the book. Anyway the third movie so brilliant as important characters arrive and the acting is so much better than most of the movies.

Awesome movie. Interesting how we find out that Serious Black isn't really a bad guy and how it's Ron's rat. - mtndew37

It's not the worst movie, far from it, but I actually think they cut too much from the book which is why I love the third book so much that it's my second favourite, the movie however I feel is lacking something.

8 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2

This is probably one of my favourite movies of all time, I was pretty disappointed with Deathly Hallows Part 1 since it was based on my favourite book but Deathly Hallows Part 2 was just a master-piece as far as I'm concerned.

I agree, great film.. I wished Luna and Neville got together

Great movie. Enough said. - mtndew37

The was the best movie guys. If you think it ain't.. Then you guys are... Wont say anything.

9 Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

This is the worst Harry Potter movie. The whole movie was made as a set-up for the Fantastic Beasts franchise, or the prequel of Harry Potter. And yet, they didn't think of straight-up story. This is just franchise building, with Credence finding out who he is; Newt going against Grindelwald; the reletionship between Newt and Thessus/Newt and Tina; and the relationship between Jacob and Queenie. Those stuff are just meant to build up the franchise. And one of the biggest problem of this movie was the fact that Dumbledore was pointless. All he did was hire Newt to stop Grindelwald because he was afraid to fight Grindelwald (SPOILER: Grindelwald was related to Dumbledore) and he didn't bother to step up. Another plot-hole in this movie was where Credence was looking for his identity, but they didn't get the movie to explain who he is, and then Grindelwald has brainwashed him in the end. This is a huge plot hole.

However, there are some pros (maybe 2). The first good thing about ...more

Possibly the ridiculousness of Minerva McGonagall being a teacher.

This was such a disgrace to the Harry Potter franchise and should be #1. It’s really intense but the script is garbage.

This movie was total disgrace to the Harry Potter franchise. Never have I seen a movie part of the Harry Potter franchise THIS BAD! At least Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them had a decent plot. This, however, had a story we've seen billions of times. The story was REALLY cheesy. Johnny Depp once again had a wasted performance. Even Eddie Redmaye has delivered one of his weaker performance since Jupiter Ascending (obviously that movie was even worse). And oh god, the plot was boring. It's basically about Grindelwald escaping prison and Newt Scamander and Dumbledore must fight him. Oh, speaking of Dumbledore, Jude Law was a horrible cast choice for that character because he looked really bored. There were a few good moments in this film like the introduction to Hogwarts and the fight scenes were pretty interesting. Overall, I've finally seen a bad Harry Potter movie. I'll grade this film a D+.
