Harry Potter and the Great Sequels

Empire Magazine has a new feature online where they list the “50 Greatest Ever Movie Sequels” including two of the Harry Potter films. Coming in at number 15 was Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix with the magazine: “David Yates took over the directing reins for this fifth film, based on
the longest – and, some would say, dullest – book in the series, and
knocked it out of the park. Excising large swathes of not much, he cut
it down to one of the leanest films and delivered a barnstorming last
act in the Ministry of Magic, with the sort of magical duels we’d been
waiting four-and-a-half films to see.”

The list also include Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which is ranked at number 24. Of the the third Harry Potter film, the magazine has the following:

“Alfonso Cuaron took over from original director Christopher Columbus,
and with the difficult task of world-building out of the way was able
to take the story and run with it, making Potter feel like a real
adventure story for the first time, and one taking place in somewhere
bordering on the real world.

How does it stack up to the original?
It’s better than the previous two, and remains many people’s favourite
entry in the series. Potter’s relationship with godfather Sirius Black
(Gary Oldman) is beautifully played out, and one of the great “Hell
yeah!”s comes when Hermione punches Draco Malfoy. It’s also the first
of the films to use a rather wonderful washed-out colour scheme, and to
revel in its darkness.

Thanks Elliot!

Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I am pleased that they included both of these spectacular films on their list. Each of them enhanced and improved this franchise wonderfully.Avatar Imagesueml says: Hmmm. I liked the Order of the Phoenix movie (just like I liked them all), but I can't say it was my favorite. The dullest book however? For me, the book was one of my favorite in the series. Long, but exciting and I loved the darkness of it all and the way Harry was finally allowed to be angry and combative.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: I still think "Chamber Of Secrets" was the best of the movies... Truest to canon, and had the REAL Dumbledore...Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: I was about to check that email!!! I get newsletters from them :) I personally don't agree with OotP being the dullest but its just my opinion :) Hell Yeah! when Hermione punched Malfoy! That was the highlight of the movie :P But YAY!! Harry Potter is on there!!! Well of course it would be!!! But still!!! :):)Avatar ImageBriePotter says: I think they were both fantastic movies but I have to agree with Won_Two, Chamber of Secrets was my favorite! Avatar ImageFlora Lovegood says: All of them should be on the list! well, except Sorceror's Stone, lol...GoF is my favorite...and OotP was a great book...whatever, its all opinion :) and good to see that they recognize the quality of the films!Avatar Imageiamasquash says: OOTP IS NEITHER DULL OR FULL OF NOT MUCH. Stupid reviewers.Avatar ImagecrazyforSeverus says: I didn't find Order of the Phoenix (novel) dull!!! I'm glad Prisoner of Azkaban made the list, it was my favourite movie until the 6th came out!Avatar Imagejessh324 says: I love POA. It's hilarious. I only re-watched it a few weeks ago leading up to the release of Hbp and I was surprised that I has forgotten how great it was!Avatar ImageGreenLightening says: Funnily enough, these are my two least favorite films. Eh.Avatar ImageDrishti Choudhury says: I'm boycotting the HP movies for now. I'm really irritated with the whole cutting-canon-out and making-their-own-stuff-up. It's actually pretty much just HBP that caused this. I loved the movie as a movie, but I hated it as a HP movie. If I hadn't ever read the Harry Potter series, I probably would have thought it was brilliant. But (fortunately/unfortunately) I have read the books, so... =/ (This Is My Opinion. If You Don't Like It, Forget About It; Don't Complain To Me, Please. Thank You...) -DrishtiChoudhuryAvatar Imagebiggestharrypotterfan says: i love those two films so much, so cheers, Empire.Avatar Imageliv-wa says: How is OOTP dull? Whatever...at least it is on the list [:Avatar Imageliv-wa says: How is OOTP dull? Whatever...at least it is on the list [:Avatar ImageSmonocco says: Prisoner of Azkaban is probably my least favourite of the movies but i did like Order of the PhoenixAvatar Imageliv-wa says: How is OOTP dull? Whatever...at least it is on the list [:Avatar ImageFresca says: I enjoyed all the movies, but felt that the last movie seemed to have a flat ending. It isn't easy making a movie when fans know every plot nuance and love the books so much.Avatar ImageA Chocolate Frog says: I personally hate the washed-out color scheme of the later films. That's one of the things the first two movies definitely did right. Even though it might be a little darker because they use candles instead of electricity, Hogwarts and the entire Wizarding world should be full of vibrant color.Avatar ImageHarrys Horntail says: That's great. Those are my 2 favourite HP movies, so I'm glad they were the ones on the list. Well, HBP is my very favourite but it's new so I didn't expect it to be on there. I checked out the whole list and agreed with almost all of it. Gotta love Empire!Avatar Imagemadman1277 says: I like all of um, but 5th deffinetly is not the dullest book if you are a true harry potter fan... O well. Anyways im glad Harry Potter on there.. and Part 1 and 2... 7 will be toAvatar ImageKimberlyZ says: id say the best was CoS, after HBP of course :P Avatar ImageKimberlyZ says: id say the best was CoS, after HBP of course :P Avatar ImageTonks1 says: OOTP was not the dullest book of the series! I could not put it down. I cried like a baby when Sirius died. It was a great book. Took us to other places besides Hogwarts. It is still my favorite. I agree with DrishtiChoudhury Not enough cannon in the movies. Stop making stuff up. Chris Columbus got is right with the first two movies and we had Richard Harris who played Dumbledore to a T. We also had John Williams. Dull book. You don't know what you are talking about. signed: Outraged!!!!!!Avatar Imagenine9isfine says: Who says its the dullest book in the series? I doubt this dude has even read a single harry potter book, what an idiot. It's my 2nd favorite book in the series. I thought the 5th movie was the worst HP movie actually. They need a new writer I think. Avatar Imagenine9isfine says: I think the first 2 movies were by far the best, they got the atmosphere, and the characters of the HP world down PERFECTLY, even if they were very cheesy. Then it started getting weird with the 3rd film....Avatar ImageGanduean-Vampiress says: OOTP A GREAT SEQUAL?????!!!!!! THEY'RE NUTS!!!!!! although i do agree on the point of AzkabanAvatar Imagesmgkkg says: The OOTP wasn't dull!! The best of the book series is the last one DH. I love reading the last book. :)Avatar ImageWingardium Leviosa says: Cool! I loved PoA, not OotP so much, and the book is not dull. They should all be on there! :-)Avatar Imageoj. says: It's great that the reviewers are so positive about those two movies :) I really like them too. In all fairness, whilst I know loads of HP fans adore OOTP, I personally found book a bit slow going for the first several hundred pages, and only really started to appreciate it after the third time I read it. I like it very much now, but there are some of us "true Harry Potter fans" who find that one slightly harder work - it's personal preference of course, everyone has their own take on which is the best! That said, I think GoF the movie is a bit under-appreciated!Avatar ImageLuce_depp says: The book is the longest and drags a tiny bit but i would never say it ws dull...jsut when it starts to feel like it's getting dull exciting stuff happens. POA is amazing i would have put that higher Avatar ImageLuce_depp says: The book is the longest and drags a tiny bit but i would never say it ws dull...jsut when it starts to feel like it's getting dull exciting stuff happens. POA is amazing i would have put that higher Avatar ImageLuce_depp says: The book is the longest and drags a tiny bit but i would never say it ws dull...jsut when it starts to feel like it's getting dull exciting stuff happens. POA is amazing i would have put that higher Avatar ImageLuce_depp says: The book is the longest and drags a tiny bit but i would never say it ws dull...jsut when it starts to feel like it's getting dull exciting stuff happens. POA is amazing i would have put that higher Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: That's pretty cool that POA and OOTP made the list... I actually would have put HBP on there too. HBP may not be as accurate as the others to the book, but it does have betters graphics and definitely better acting. Avatar Imageiamminerva says: There's no such thing as a dull Harry Potter book! Avatar Imagecghambright says: I personally LOVE all the movies!! I think each director has done a wonderful job capturing the books. I think my absolute favorites are probably POA, OOTP, and HBP though so it's nice to see two of those made the list. I just love how Yates and Cuaron added their own artistic touch to those films...they didn't stick to the books word for word like Columbus and Newell did. But alas, I love them all. Avatar Imagecghambright says: I think some people think OOTP is dull because it's the longest and most of the book is Harry's thoughts on how much his life sucks (which is true) and how much no one understands him (which they dont). Even JK Rowling has said that if she could re-edit one book it would be OOTP because she was up against a deadline and had just had a baby when she wrote that book so I don't think she really had time to "savor" it like she did with the others. But it's not dull. I love OOTP. Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: so cool!! im glad 2 of them at least made the list.Avatar ImageBrosia23 says: I am happy that they are counting 2 of Harry's movies on the list, but I think that all of the movies are better than the ones previous. HBP rules!!!!!Avatar Imagemjkalldaway says: I wasn't entirely impressed by either movies, although they were good, i thought they could be better. Ootp deserves it thoughAvatar ImageSuzyLee says: Got to agree with what most people have said OOTP is in no way a "dull" book, but oh well. It was indeed a good film, personally I've never been that keen on POA the film and in fact its never even been by any leap my favourite book, I know, I know I've just commited fandom blastphomy lol, still as an adaption of the book it was still a LOT better than GOF which still remains the greatest atrocity of the film series so far.Avatar ImageParkinsonpansy says: 3 & 6 are my favs!Avatar Imageoldenoughtoknowbetter says: I didn't think OotP was a dull book! It was one of my favorites! The movie was a bit wanting tho. Too much deviation from canon to my liking.Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: It was only dull to them because it was big. People usually now adays can only read very small books. Its ridiculas. OOTP is one of my favourite!!! Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: It was only dull to them because it was big. People usually now adays can only read very small books. Its ridiculas. OOTP is one of my favourite!!! Avatar ImagePadfootLover4ever says: Ya...I think they should switch them. PoA is my favorite HP film to date and OotP is my least favorite. Avatar ImageDawna says: Dull? Did they read the book? It was definitely not dull!Avatar ImageDawna says: Dull? Did they read the book? It was definitely not dull!Avatar ImageDawna says: Dull? Did they read the book? It was definitely not dull!Avatar ImageDawna says: Dull? Did they read the book? It was definitely not dull! Avatar ImagePhoenix1946 says: OotP is my favorite book even though I take 20 hours to read it. I am still waiting for the book to be made into a movie. SS and CoS movies are very close to the books and you have too look to find the differences. This, in my humble opinion, is the way a book should be made into a movie. PoA and GoF movies had some sub-stories deleted and details changed but were still easily recognized as coming from the books. OotP the movie is missing so much of OotP the book that I don't bother to watch the movie. I would rather read the original story in the book. HBP is another story. I watched about 45 minutes of the movie and got up and left! I was surprised at the lack of a crowd in a mid-afternoon showing on Monday the 20th of July.(less than 10 including myself). If I bother to watch the HBP movie again, it will be by renting the DVD. Why waste $25 to buy it? As for DH, I will wait for the DVD. Things missing or changed in the book to movie translation just bug me. For example: in GoF, the piece of paper with Harry's name on it is yellow notebook paper with blue lines! The wizards of Harry's world write with quill pen and ink on rolls of parchment. They don't know what blue-lined paper is! This is one example of many. But it has turned me off of the movies. The only way I can regain the Real World of Harry Potter is to read the books and curse the digressing movies.Avatar Imagebiiigbob says: It's difficult to compare a movie with the book it came from and NOT be disappointed. A book is unrestricted with the details it can provide in the telling of a story. Movies have time constraints, budgets, and numerous other restraints that keep the movie from being 100% TRUE to the book. Using Neville instead of Dobby to give Harry gillyweed, or to find the room of requirements is an example of a reasonable deviation from the book that provides the primary information needed to help the movie tell the same story. That being said, the burning of the Burrow as a device to convey the danger of the times in the wizarding world when such an event never happened in the books is, in my opinion, an unreasonable deviation from the book. The time and money spent on that scene could have been put to better use somewhere else. Another unreasonable deviation is in the opening of HBP when Harry is flirting with the girl on the coffee shop. There was no need for that scene since it had nothing to do with the story that was written. I try to enjoy the movies for what they are. An adaptation of books that I love. Knowing that, I am so far able to live with the movies with little complaint.Avatar Imagebethtaylor4 says: I like many others am glad that the two movies made the list, and although the fifth book is not one of my favorites I don't consider it dull. I don't see how you could consider any of the Harry Potter series dull.Avatar Imageanukritis says: I agree with the comments here. How can Order of the Phoenix be the dullest??? Have the magazine ppl even read the book to compare it to the movie? The movie seemed alright, but it left out some significant details. I miss the REAL Dumbledore too!! Michael Gambon really needs to read the books. Avatar ImageDobbyWinkyKreacher says: David Yates is the worst director ever. Christopher Columbus and Alfonso Cuaron were the best. Order of the Phoenix book was not dull in the slightest. The movie was certainly ruined by Yates. He didn't do much of a job on Half Blood Prince either. He removes everything of importance and fills it with stuff that is not even a part of the book. Avatar ImageWolfheart says: I'm sort of hoping my eyes read those descriptions incorrectly. OotP is definitely one of my favorite of the books and far from dull! The movie is a decent adaptation I suppose, and deserves to be up there. I hated the PoA movie though... But this is complete opinion, so oh well. :)Avatar Imagechanman says: No book is dull. Ootp was awesomeAvatar Imagechanman says: This may be the biggest collection of long comments I have ever seenAvatar Imagepaula_nicole10 says: i have to agree... Harry Potter deserve it!! :) and my favorite one is the Order of the Phoenix!!!Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: cool! i <3d POAAvatar Imagedeadtree says: wow, I can't disagree more with a lot of what they said there-- the OotP film was based on my favourite HP book so I'm sure I'm biased, but I felt like it was a lot of really well-made scenes smashed together into a movie that made almost no sense. Definitely not gestalt. And while the book is long, in what way was it dull? It was just even more of the usual goodness! That said, PoA is my favourite film so far and I wish it'd ranked higher! Avatar ImageAsi says: PA is one of my favorite movies but OP is my least favorite one!Avatar Imageterieb says: my two favorites- how coolAvatar ImageHopelaa93 says: The prisoner of Azkaban is my favourite film so far, and its great that its on the list. The order of the phoenix is my second so its great that thats up there too. Avatar ImageR-for-H says: Very cool!!Avatar Imageaj_ellybean says: Loved POA; it's the first time we actually see something developing between Ron & Hermione. Both scenes of Malfoy getting beaten up--by Buckbeak and then Hermione--are hilarious. Avatar Imagejustanargle says: Order of the phoenix is not the dullest book!! it's one of my favourites!!! It is a great film, but its not a dull book. I can't believe someone said that! :O Avatar ImageMellzey72 says: I like em both! So Congrats!Avatar Imagenightreader says: When I saw the title of this post I thought, hmm this is a subject that probably get lots of comments, and so it is. Personally, I started watching harry potter from the very beginning. Let's say when I was ten or eleven years old. I was always thrilled when the new movie came out. First two movies where brilliant to me and gave me the "HP virus". Because of these first two movies I started reading the books. Have to admit that I prefer the books, but I love to see how they translate the books on the "big screen". When PoA came out, I went to the cinema (my first HP movie on big screen) and I was thrilled. Then the GoF, which I found also a very good film. But untill then PoA still was my favourite because it was different than the first two movies in a good way. But then, when the OOTP came out, my expectations might have been to big. And the movie dissapointed me a bit. After seeing the movie for the first time I went several times again and I started to appreciate it a lot more. Then, two years later after a delay, one of my favourite books of the series came out. HP and the half blood prince. I didn't wanted to be dissapointed again so I went to the movie with as less as possible expectations. I have to say that this movie was absolutely amazing! There are many fans who can't agree with me because they say that they leave to many things out of the books and they add scenes that aren't even in the books. Well, I think that it was one of the best movies. The balance between the tension and nerve wrecking moments and the moments filled with humour was very good. I didn't care about the added scene of the burrow. I liked it a lot because as fans we get to see new stuff. The last thing I want to say is mayby the thing that is most important to say for my part. David Yates wasn't superb in OOTP to me but in HBP he really convinced me that he will take the HP series to a higher level. He learned from mistakes and i'm looking forward to DH! Nicholas hooper is also a much spoken man on this site. Again, there are many people who say that only John Williams can do a great job for the movies. I loved John Williams his work too but since the OOTP I started noticing the music in the movies. Nicholas hooper has written songs that are really pieces of art. For the first time I bought the soundtrack of the movies, because of him. So thanks to Nicholas Hooper! Last en certainly not least is Dumbledore in the series. As I mentioned before I was a HP fan from the beginning and I wasn't happy with an other actor for dumbledore. It couldn't be different because everyone knows the first one (forgot his name) died. So Michael Gambon took over. In PoA I was missing the old one. But in the movies to come I started liking him, he was very different than the first one. But now in half blood prince he prove that he is a worthy Dumbledore. He played his role so well and I have to say I'll miss him. Hope everyone will get more open minded and don't stick to the past but broaden your minds. Change isn't always a bad thing. And for once and for al, books and movies are just like apples and bananas, don't compare them too much! greetings! ;) Avatar Imagenightreader says: that is one big comment I wrote :pAvatar Imagebecmajec says: that's great! i love both of those movies!! Avatar ImageFifi says: THAT is the biggest comment I have eveeer seen. Well done to OotP and PoA!!!Avatar ImageGranger10 says: I personally think that the fifth HP movie was by far not the best out of the, now, 6 movies released. I feel that the scenes were much to short and that a lot was cut out. I do realise that, if I am correct, it is one of or the longest book in the series and is therefore harder to put into a 2 hour movie, but they could have made the movie a little more accurate. Don't get me wrong, I really liked the 5th movies, I just don't think it was the best. I much rather prefered the third movie. Personally I think that the first tow where the best because the used exact lines from the book and they didn't rely on CGI to make the movie amazing. But never the less, I enjoy all of the, now, 6 movies. Everybody did a great job!!!!Avatar ImageBewareoftheNargles says: CoS was a great sequel and was obviously more flowing with the first ... but I agree, PoA also kept the spirit of HP. I just wonder why they don't put GoF - I preferred GoF to OotP..Avatar ImageMoose_Starr says: It's so cool that HP movies are in the category of great sequels. PoA is my favorite movie (an equal favorite with SS but, that is not a sequel lol) But, I wonder how the author of this article could say OoTP is dull? Or, that Yates cut out a lot of *not much* ... I love OoTP the book and, in my opinion what was left out of the movie was in fact exciting and fascinating plot and storylines. Avatar ImageAsta says: i think the rest of them should also have been listed...Avatar ImageAsta says: i loved chamber of secrets and half blood prince...Avatar ImageRavenclaw98 says: I love these films! Azkban is probley my fav!Avatar ImageRavenclaw98 says: I love these films! Azkban is probley my fav!Avatar ImageRemsyLuck says: I'm glad these 2 movies were included in that list! Here's to hoping DH will make that list oo one day :D Although I want to bitchslap the writer for callign the OotP book dull....Avatar ImageMatea says: PoA was my fav before HBP : ) I still sort of hate OOTP.Avatar ImageMatea says: PoA was my fav before HBP : ) I still sort of hate OOTP.Avatar ImagePhylis says: It's too bad this didn't include Half Blood Prince which has now become my fav of the six. Avatar Imagesunlitdays says: why all this hate on the ootp book? Avatar Imagesunlitdays says: and emma watson;s boobs were photoshopped? thats sickAvatar Imagemuggle..andproudofit says: i like PoA (movie ) (i LOVE all the books) and i hate hate hate! the OotP movie ! but i like all the other movies! ( ditto HBP)Avatar ImageRosie.Ravenclaw.Weasley says: Aww...i thought OotP was a great book! i really like chamber of secrets it was a lot more true to the book than phoenix i think.Avatar Imagehermionesclone says: Yay! They totally deserve to be on the list! What happened to the others? They should ba on there as well! I loved all the movies even with the making up and weird things going on that's not in the book. Avatar ImageRobbie Rowe says: That is very good list I must say. Good to read. I recommend it. POA and OOTP are brillaint films by my reckoning. They should be there.Avatar Imagelucylovesrupert says: the 3rd and 5th movies are my favorite!Avatar ImageMr. Brightside says: OOTP is my second favourite Potter book and it's not dull at all! It is different from the previous but not dull. I also believe, that the 5th movie as well as POA are the worst films in the series. OOTP was so chopped that it was not making any sense and Prisoner of Azkaban is the reason Hogwarts changed it's appearance. COS is the best of the films this far for me, at least till i watch HBP. "Hermione punches Draco Malfoy" When in the book she just slaps him. Another reason i don't like this film.Avatar ImageMrs.Brisby says: Prisoner is my favorite of the movies and Order is my favorite of the books. :) Really though, Order is thisclose to being my favorite of the movies! I'm just happy Goblet didn't make this list! :D *loathes GoF movie* What a travesty that was. *shakes head* They completely butchered *everything* in that movie. Avatar Imageccking says: OotP was NOT the dullest in the series!! the movie was the dullest the books was one of the best, and one of the most important in the entire series!! i didn't like the movie even a little bit! i'd give it 2/10 starsAvatar Imageentoptic says: I hated the Order of the Phoenix movie. Nothing felt right to me. They cut a lot out and the relationships weren't really developed. When I first saw the movie (before I read the books), I didn't even understand why Harry cared so much that Sirius died... but that's partly the fault of the 4th film.Avatar Imagetayler18 says: what? ootp dull, are you kidding me?Avatar Imageharrypotter1991 says: I like Prisoner of Azkaban a little more than Order of the Pheonix though! POA should have been #15 and OOTP #24! Avatar Imagealegria35 says: Yey!.. HP films rule. I'm not for OOTP though, it lacked some of the things in the books (the important thing being quidditch's "Weasly is our King"), but, the duel between Voldemort & Dumbledore is awesome. Same for POA. Avatar Imagealegria35 says: Yeah, and OOTP may be longest, but definitely not dullest. Avatar Imagealegria35 says: Come to think of it, there are no dull moments in HP universe. All are good read, page-turners, and unput-downable.Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: THE Order of the Phoenix IS NOT A DULL BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Im glad two films made it onto the list.Avatar ImageHydrus says: I always really liked Order of the Phoenix - the book. I loved that it was delving deeper into the wizarding world, and the story was great and exciting. I thought the movie was the worst done of all of them, due to editing, not acting. I actually thought the movie sucked because of the hack editing job. Prisoner of Azkaban was my favorite movie until Half blood prince came out. It was my favorite book until Deathly Hallows arrived. Avatar Imageiamnotworriedharry says: OOTP dull??? That book is the opposite of dull. I can't even believe someone wrote that. I am glad the movies make the list but that was a really unfortunate comment, made by someone who hasn't read any of the books would be my guess. Avatar Imagedcsbelle says: I can't say I find much to agree with the author of this article. OOP dull??? Perhaps his attention span is rather limited. And PoA was my least favorite film with its slapstick humor bits and the over the tops performances in the Shrieking Shack.Avatar Imagetinagin says: OOTP book dull??? Let's see, it opens with Dementor attacks and Harry nearly getting expelled it continues the tension of the story when he is tortured by that cow Umbridge, then Arthur gets attacked, Harry has his first kiss, Harry leads the DA, and ends with the huge Battle in the Ministry and Sirius is killed. Yeah, yawn, boring.... Whatever. I did not completely like the adaptation of OoTP, but I can live with it. I have to say I think POA was the best movie adaptation (aside from HBP). As far as the books go though, OOTP is number one for me. Avatar Imagesavingharry says: I agree with Sueml. One of the dullest books in the series?! "Excising large swathes of not much"?! Umm... what about large swatches of CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT?! or large swatches of HUMOR and HEART?! Sorry, a lot of "?!" there, but really... I mean, I liked OotP and all, but give me a break. Saying that the best thing about the film is something that is actually the WORST thing about it is really stupid.Avatar Imagesavingharry says: Oh, and just to put this out there, HBP is the best adaptation in the series, in my opinion. I'd take the excision of the Hogwarts battle for the excision over the excision of the marauders any day, even if PoA is my #2 favorite.Avatar ImageHGROSS44 says: This goes to show that there is as many people who like different HP Movies as there are warts on a toads nose. To be a true critic one would have to be present when the film was made and then you could tell how difficult it is to make a move. Sometimes things just don't get thought about till after the movie is all out and then they say well we should have done this or left out that. But a movie is to inspire us and give us intertainment. I allways see things in a move that could have been done better but that is show biz.Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: Yay! For Harry Potter being on the list. And I liked PoA. And yes, I loved OotP. And as for the dullest book? Well, it was my favourite anyway. :|Avatar ImageAstoria.Greengrass says: Those were definitly my favrites akkk... spelling errors !!!Avatar ImageAstoria.Greengrass says: Those were definitly my favrites akkk... spelling errors !!!Avatar Imagestivenar says: I think that Harry Potter and the order of the Fenix was the best movie, for this reason is in that list, although Harry Potter and the half-blood prince was excelent too.Avatar ImageXhago says: They should be on #1Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: You're dull, stupid newpaper bloke!Avatar ImageHermioneRon4ever says: Great to see 'em there! Though I must agree with many here, OOTP dull??? And yea, Prisoner of Azkaban was amazing, the part where Hermione punches Draco.... Awesome :P I do feel bad in HBP though....Avatar ImageHermioneRon4ever says: @savingharry : HBP was a great adaptation, at least I thought so. Everythinng that was neccessary was there, the acting was AMAZING, it was sad, funny, intense, ect... And I loved the added bit with Draco's doves :)Avatar Imagebornofmuggles says: I never met a HP movie or book I didn't like, but I have to say movie 5 was the weakest adaptation of all, so I'm a bit disappointed in the reviewer. I don't have much respect for movie reviewers anyway though. They seem to not get sci fi/fantasy and to love darkness and drama for its own sake. To me, the point is the juxtaposition of dark and light, or what IS the darkness and how must the light respond, and for that I loved books 5-7 the most. My favorite movie is PoA, which got me interested in the whole series.Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: order is still my fave so far :] glad it made close to the top of the list :]
