Avatar ImageMirdan says: My favorite would have to be Order of the Phoenix simply because it was the first film that really clicked for me. Every single actor just shined in their role, the script was excellent, and the tone fit the book. I sat in the theatre thinking, "Wow! It's Harry Potter!"Avatar Imagekyrstalkris says: My favorite movie of the Harry Potter series would have to be the last one, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Regardless of reading the book, that film really made me feel on edge the entire time, I was shaking the whole time wondering if they were going to make it out safely. I was honestly terrified for their lives! Everyone acted beyond my expectations and they really did the book justice and did its purpose of retelling a story based on a book. It was understandable, not misleading at all, and filled with so much story! During the battle, they didn't just stop all the story lines, they continued it and made it look not cheesy or corny or weird really, they made it look like as if these people are real people fighting for their lives and not just playing a role in a movie. All in all, the plot line, the actors, the screenplay -- everything really, was absolutely outstanding.Avatar ImageWitchlover says: My favorite movie (wow it is sooo hard to choose) is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. Deathly Hallows is my favorite book ever, and both parts did the book justice, but I absolutely love Part 1 because of the amazing character development. The story was different because they weren't at Hogwarts anymore, but that just made everything more suspenseful and dangerous. You really feel the mood of three friends running for their lives. You feel their terror, you feel their confusion, you feel their anger and every emotion that they have on this incredible journey. I learned so much more about Harry, Ron, and Hermione and to what lengths they were willing to go to stop Voldemort. The acting was unbelievably incredible! I love this movie!Avatar ImageMcGonagallsMusings says: Prisoner of Azkaban because it's David Thewlis's introduction to the movies. I love his portrayal of Lupin, who is one of my favorite characters from the books. I also just enjoy the time turner sequences and how, like the book, it doesn't seem repetitive to the storyline.Avatar ImageForeverHPfan says: All of the Harry Potter movies are my favorite. I watch them about three times every year. But I really like prisoner of Azkaban because that's when Hermione Says "You foul loathing evil little cockroach" and punches Draco. Which he really deserved. Avatar ImageDeliaDee says: My favorite of the films is definitely Chamber of Secrets because, aside from Sorcerer's Stone, it was truest to the books. Also, aside from Sorcerer's Stone, it is the only one where Kloves didn't insist on making Harry look like the biggest gormless twit ever to walk the earth. It's very important to me because Harry is actually quite intelligent but you wouldn't know that to look at any of the last 6 movies.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Hands down my favorite film of the Harry Potter series is "The Chamber Of Secrets"... It is a great stand alone film, that also manages to be almost totally faithful to the book.Avatar Imagepaint it Black says: My favorite film in the series is still The Prisoner of Azkaban. I love how Cuaron made something that was not just a literal re-telling of the novel, but a beautiful film with interesting visual themes and moods. The whole time-turner sequence was fantastic. Plus, I love the new adult cast members and seeing Harry get to know his parents' old friends. The score is one of my favorites as well.Avatar Imageboushh says: Deathly Hallows Part 2 is my favorite film of the bunch partly because they captured the feelings I had while reading the book, and because it shows off all the talent and hard work that has gone into these films over the years.Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: My favourite film is Deathly Hallows Part 2. It captured everything that Harry Potter has been for last ten years; Love, lose, sacrafice, loyalty, and friendship. I grew up with all the fabulouse characters, they became a part of my family and losing so many that I loved was heartbreaking! But finally seeing it all end, and most of all seeing the next generation heading off to start their Hogwarts adventure. It was a beautiful and perfect ending to such an amazing book. As I love to say; Thank you Harry Potter, it's been one hell of a ride! :)Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: My favourite film is Deathly Hallows Part 2. It captured everything that Harry Potter has been for last ten years; Love, lose, sacrafice, loyalty, and friendship. I grew up with all the fabulouse characters, they became a part of my family and losing so many that I loved was heartbreaking! But finally seeing it all end, and most of all seeing the next generation heading off to start their Hogwarts adventure. It was a beautiful and perfect ending to such an amazing book. As I love to say; Thank you Harry Potter, it's been one hell of a ride! :)Avatar Imageonsali20 says: My favorite movie would be Deathly Hallows Part 1. I thought this movie did the best job of portraying the book and was very well made. I also loved the decision of where to break the story to end this movie.Avatar Imagenatedagrr8 says: I enjoy Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. It was the cinematic culmination of a generation. Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: My favourite film is Deathly Hallows Part 2. It captured everything that Harry Potter has been for last ten years; Love, lose, sacrafice, loyalty, and friendship. I grew up with all the fabulouse characters, they became a part of my family and losing so many that I loved was heartbreaking! But finally seeing it all end, and most of all seeing the next generation heading off to start their Hogwarts adventure. It was a beautiful and perfect ending to such an amazing book. As I love to say; Thank you Harry Potter, it's been one hell of a ride! :)Avatar Imagefanofjo says: It's hard to pick between 3,5,6,7.1 &7.2 for me. I think I'll have to go with Order of the Phoenix. Loved all of the performances in it, especially Umbridge's. I think it adapted the book well, leaving out parts that were a bit superfluous. It definitely captured the spirit of Sirius and Harry's relationship, and Harry's agony at the end. Only thing I wish is that they went into the prophecy a bit more at the end with Dumbledore, like they do in the book. But overall, it's great.Avatar ImageSpellRose says: My favorite one is "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire", because I think it's really entertaining. The whole Triwizard Tournament was portrayed amazingly, and even though they changed a lot of things from the book, with that particular film it doesn't bother me as much as the others. I loved every actor's performance and I think the movie is very well made. The soundtrack is awesome too. Avatar Imagejudge says: My Favourite of all the films has to be the first, even though i love them all. But the first one was so Magical especially the first sight of Hogwarts thats when i fell in love with these films, from the first one. Hogwarts school is lovely and finding out all the magical things that go on there was even better, the staircases, the paintings and who can forget that gorgeous main hall with its enchanted ceiling. oh i might have to go watch it now, just writing about it makes it all flood back into my mind. Its also when you meet all the main charactors, and i do feel like i know them as they were all portrayed so well, i just love them all..Harry, Hermione and Ron not to mention all the Hogwarts staff, well i could just go on forever but i think i going to watch it now !! very happy muggle xAvatar ImageSicTransitEm says: It's really hard to pick a favorite. I think I'm going to have to go with HPDH2. Alan Rickman's performance alone is incredible. Bringing Snape's and Harry's stories together. Everything about it was great (even with things changed a little or left out) I was not dissapointed in it at all. I literally grew up with all of these characters and have experienced life, love and loss with them. It was hard to see them go, but they went in the best way possible. Avatar Imageleahjeanne says: I would have to say Order of the Pheonix, because I love how its in this movie that all the minor characters become so much more. You really get to know the characters on a whole new level, and you finally see them start to come together. For me it was the turning point of the whole series. =] Plus it was my favorite book. Avatar Imageholey_saint_george says: My favorite movie has to be PoA or DH 1 and 2. PoA because, although I feel that it strays from the book the most, I love the color scheme of the whole movie. I feel like it was also the first movie where the kids stepped into their own and really got to explore their characters and really act. Deathly Hallows is probably just because I had such great experiences with those movies. The first I was with my best friend near my house and the second I was at LeakyCon and that was just an experience that I cannot explain in words. Beyond incredible. Also, I feel that the movies did DH justice. All of the little nods to the past movies were so sentimental and totally got to me. It was definitely nostalgic.Avatar Imagesirius33 says: My favorite movie is Deatly Hallows Part 2. I think that they effectively translated the book without cutting to much or putting in too much. I especially liked the epilogue because the movie ended on the perfect tone of nostalgia.Avatar ImageNightPhoenix35 says: My favorite movie is Deathly Hallows Part 2 because it brings back so many of the emotions I felt while reading that portion of the book.Avatar ImageHermioNAY says: For me to choose a "favorite Harry Potter Movie" is like asking me which is my favorite child (I have four). They each hold a special place in my heart. I love them all equally and unconditionally since they are a part of me, each has qualities unique to themselves that make me proud and filled with love, yet it is that uniqueness that sometimes poses an, "I love you, but I sure don't like you right now," feeling. So it is with the Harry Potter Films. I love them unconditionally because each is unique to themselves and they are part of the larger picture of Rowling's beloved books. Like most, Daniel, Rupert, and Emma, have become the embodiment of Harry, Ron, and Hermione. I love being able to visualize the scenes described in the books, and how closely they matched what I had in my head as I read the written page. Now for the uniqueness that causes that, "I love you, but sure don't like you right now" feeling. Because they are movies, things are left out that explain other things in the book. On screen, these are changed for times sake, or left out completely for reasons that sometimes I simply can't fathom. The greatest example of this for me was HBP. I walked out of the theater shaking my head wondering how in the world they were going to sufficiently explain everything happening in DH. So much was left out of HBP that I founD myself deeply annoyed. (not unlike the feeling I have with one of my children when they do something deeply disappointing). But after DH pt1 and pt2 came out I felt it was done sufficiently to be able to let my disappointment go. (much like the child who redeems himself the next day after whatever the disappointing action had been). I LOVE the books. I LOVE the movies, despite they will never quite meet the books in content, they never fail to enthrall me as I watch them. Sooo there I have explained why saying one movie is my favorite is hard, but alas this IS a contest, so for sake of argument, I will say DH pt 2 because it was the ultimate triumph of Harry over Voldemort. The most powerful message was that of Neville Longbottom as he says, "People die every day, but they are still with us...here (pointing to his heart)". The love they had for each other was more than physical, it was spiritual. This is how I felt about the books and the movies. Although I will miss reading or seeing something new about Harry et al, i still have them with me...here (points to my own chest). My love for the books and movies is spiritual. In the words of Ms. Rowling herself, "Hogwarts will always be there to welcome me home."Avatar ImageHermioNAY says: For me to choose a "favorite Harry Potter Movie" is like asking me which is my favorite child (I have four).

The acting was great, and since the book was split into two movies, showed a lot more of my favorite parts. I had been looking forward to seeing the part where Hagrid carried Harry's "body" back from the forbidden forest ever since I read it in the book. And the movie didn't disappoint.Avatar ImageRollivander says: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part one and two are my favorite. They are the conclusion to the most spell-blinding, beautiful and perfect series in history.Avatar ImageRollivander says: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part one and two are my favorite. They are the conclusion to the most spell-blinding, beautiful and perfect series in history.Avatar ImagePotternatics says: All fo them were very well executed but my favourite is Deathly Hallows part 2 bc it captured every moment correctly. The CGI's were phenomenol and Alan Rickman did a marvolous job as snape. This is by dfar the best one!!Avatar ImageCrucioHayla says: My favorite film is Harry Potter and the Goblet of fire because it was my favorite of the boks and I really like the way that they used the book to create the movie. It's not completely like the book, but it is very similar. I like that is so action-filled and there isn't one dull moment. Also, I kindof enjoy the fact that Robert Pattinson dies since i hate twilight. (lol) although I did love the character Cedric Diggory and it was very sad when he died. I think the acting throughout the movie is spectacular and overall, I think it was the most well made movie of the series.Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Meh I won't win so won't bother tryingAvatar Imageluckylau85 says: If forced to choose, I have to say Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. The first film removed all doubt that the books could be faithfully adapted into movies. And the spirit of pure hope and magic shines through each scene beautifully. Watching it always brings a smile to my face. :)Avatar ImageJellyMok says: My favorite line would definitely be from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Chapter 30 The Battle of Hogwarts Page 625 "OI! There's a war going on here!" This was said by Harry when Ron and Hermione FINALLY kiss! It took seven books for this to finally happen. It's almost magical that at that very moment they both realize that they need to treasure every moment because you never know what is going to happen. :)Avatar ImageHarryLoverAllRound says: my favorite would be the fifth film. THe order of the Phoenix, I loved that movie so much. I felt that the actors had really fully matured, and we felt the pain of the death of sirius. We felt all the emotions. I loved the ending of that movie, cause its friends forever. I felt that in that film, there was really great casting, like Umbridge, and Luna. Everyone was picked so well. It was a great film. Avatar ImageMollycairn says: My favorite film is the Prisoner of Azkaban. It introduces Lupin and Sirius to the Potterverse. The Sirius storyline in which you learn that he is not what he initially appears to be is repeated with other characters later, most notably Snape. I love the scene right before Sirius leaves on Buckbeak when he speaks with Harry about his parents and love.It is also a visually stunning film.Avatar ImageLoader Lady says: My favorite film is the first one because that's when the film magic started.Avatar Imagebpkelsey says: Deathly Hallows Part 2. It really showed just how far the actors had come. And it was very emotional. Just a great film.Avatar Imagefideengange says: My favorite movie is harry potter and the goblet of fire because I love the part with the maze :DAvatar ImageJellyMok says: Sorry wrote the wrong response! :p My favorite movie is definitely Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. I can't imagine how difficult closing a ten year old franchise would be but I thought they did an amazing job at it. The Ron and Hermione kiss was one of the cutest kissing scenes I have ever seen and the fact that they had that real moment where while shooting it they broke character and giggled just added to the moment. It made it the most natural scene. But also the mood of the whole movie was just intense. The fact that not only did the characters know that this was it but the actors/actresses playing them.The epilogue was just heartbreaking but without it, there wouldn't really be any complete closure for the series. The sheer fact that it was the end of an era but the start of the next generation was just...magical :)Avatar Imagenelliebelle says: My favorite is Prizoner of Azkaban. I loved the adaptation, especially the scenes near the end where Buckbeak fights off werewolf Lupin. Also love the clock theme.Avatar ImageFlowerMalfoy says: my favorite would have to be the prisoner of azkaban because its where i think the jopurney unfolds. the truth about petter pettigrew is reveled. sirius black is his godfather. remus lupin was one of his dad's bestfriends andi think that they are all crucial to the plot ;)Avatar Imagejennward says: My favorite movie is Order of the Phoenix because I think it signifies Harry's transition into adulthood. He has to lose someone he loves, again, and it forever changes him into the man he is to become. He also begins to realize that his fate is going to be far more difficult to cope with than he anticipated. Avatar ImageMamere28 says: My very favorite film is Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. This movie has so many firsts, the Knight Bus, Dementors, Marauder's Map and so many new actors. There were so many highlights in the film - Aunt Marge blowing up and away, riding on the Knight Bus, the Dementor kiss on the train, animagus rat and dog, the hipogriff (flying with Harry, in the woods enjoying the bats, almost being killed), Lupin turning into the werewolf, Harry meeting his godfather and Hermione punching Draco. Emotions run all over the place in this move, from the highs to the lows. It keeps me on my toes because it has no slow spots, it is just keeps moving. I have watched more times than any other of the HP movies because I love it so much. Avatar ImageFlowerMalfoy says: prisoner of azkaban because its where the journey unfolds. you learn the truth about siriu black and petter pettigrew you also see how snape kept his promise. to protect harry, and he did when lupin in his werewolf form was attacking. you learn how lupin is a werewolf and about the marurders and i think that this is extremly crucial to the polt but i also like how the actors portray their characters its like when you see snape you dont think alan rickman you just think severus snape and the same for sirius, and lupin Avatar Imagerettophantom says: Arrrrgh! Pick my favourite child... For today it will be Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, for the stunning cinematography, great performances, and the beautiful marriage of the music, visual style and story to create the perfect atmosphere for the final schooling year at Hogwarts. Although it could also be based solely on Michael Gambon's delivery of the line "Years ago I knew a boy who made all the wrong choices". Absolutely heartbreaking.Avatar ImageFlowerMalfoy says: prisoner of azkaban because its where the journey unfolds. you learn the truth about siriu black and petter pettigrew you also see how snape kept his promise. to protect harry, and he did when lupin in his werewolf form was attacking. you learn how lupin is a werewolf and about the marurders and i think that this is extremly crucial to the polt but i also like how the actors portray their characters its like when you see snape you dont think alan rickman you just think severus snape and the same for sirius, and lupin Avatar Imagerettophantom says: Arrrrgh!

Although it could also be based solely on Michael Gambon's delivery of the line "Years ago I knew a boy who made all the wrong choices". Absolutely heartbreaking.Avatar Imagemaf779 says: Half Blood Prince, the kids forming the DA, thinking and acting for themselves. In the movie I liked the ending scene where Snape gestures for Harry to be silent and Harry listens to him. Even though it ends entirely differently than the book, that scene is a good set-up for what is to come.Avatar ImageStrikesnidget167 says: My favorite is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. the underwater scenes were amazing and I love Mad- eye demonstrating the unforgivable curses. plus Nagini!

First, two if my favorite characters, Mcgonagall & Snape, get to be at their most awesome. Second, I really think it was best film of the , and last, because the scene with Harry and Hermione, just before Harry goes into the first to face VoldemortAvatar Imagetaurnguard says: My favorite of the series would be Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix because it had the most lines for my favorite character, Luna Lovegood (Evanna Lynch).Avatar Imageelfinkid says: I love Deathly Hallows pt 2 for a few reasons. First, two of my favorite characters, Mcgonagall & Snape, get to be at their most awesome. Second, I really think it was best film of the series, and last, because the added scene with Harry and Hermione, just before Harry goes into the forest to face Voldemort, is one of the most beautiful and moving scenes ever filmed. It makes me cry just thinking about it.Avatar Imagequenivere says: Hmmm I woulod have to say Deathly Hollowa Pt 2. Not for the obvious reason - the final confrontation - but for the redemption of Snape - his story. And, I really like the way he disapperated out of Hogwarts - in a flourish of cape :)Avatar ImageCupcake 1993 says: gahhh its like asking to choose between 8 fun and amazing memories and experiances. ok sooo since I cant choose all, I will have to choose Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire BECAUSE when I read the book I was trying very hard to imagin all the new additions to the story and what everything would look like and I have to say when the movie came out it was not a dissapointment at all. Everything was so cool and well pictured with all the new students and spells and the tournament it was just CRAZY. PLUS lets no forget it was when chaos started happeing with the rise of Voldemort and the death eaters GAH! it was just insane. My favorite part in the movie was the Yule ball because I found it very funny and fun to watch, BUT I also cried when Cedric died :(. It clearly is the best movie to be honest, I mean it all kind of started there for me and It just made me more excited for the following ones. :D Avatar Imagelonglivefredw says: My favorite is the Order of the Pheonix, Harry doesn't have as many opportunities to show emotion in the movies as in the books. I think the most emotion was in the Order of the Pheonix. The acting was great and I love that thats the movie where Neville finally starts to get the attention he deserves. :) Avatar ImageYankeeRose1214 says: My favorite was Order of the Phoenix. The story matured at that point and really became much darker. It revealed that there was more to Voldemort than just a "bad guy" who needed to be stopped.Avatar ImageMudblood_and_proud says: My favorite film would have to be film 1. it is the film that started it all and it reminds all of us fans that it DID truly happen all those years ago. It reminds us that our story started somewhere and it will last foreverAvatar ImageMudblood_and_proud says: :)Avatar Imagesilverdoe9 says: Choosing my favorite Harry Potter movie, much like choosing my favorite Harry Potter book, is no easy task. I love them all for different reasons! However, if forced to pick just one, I'll go with Deathly Hallows Part 2 as my favorite film. DHP2 represents the end of an era. I began reading the Harry Potter books when I was 7, and the first film came out when I was 11. Deathly Hallows Part 2 came out 10 days before my 21st birthday. The amazing thing about this series is that I love it just as much now, if not more so, than I did when I was 7. Harry Potter means everything to me. There have been moments of pure magic and awe, like when Hagrid said, "Yer a wizard, Harry," and moments of pure heartbreak, like when Snape said, "Always." Throughout the series, I've witnessed friendships formed, adventures taken, loved ones lost, and relationships begin and end. I've been there through the laughter and the tears. I can never thank Jo Rowling enough for creating a world that is so rich and full of detail that the characters feel like old friends and the places feel like home. Deathly Hallows Part 2 is my favorite because it has all of the things I love about the series in one film. We see love, laughter, and unfortunately, plenty of heartbreak. However, with this film, there is also hope. Hope for a new beginning, of which the epilogue was a perfect representation. Mainly, DHP2 is my favorite film because it represents the end. Though, I know it's not really the end, because as Jo said, "Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home." I can just read/watch the books over again! PS. Sorry this is so long!Avatar Imagemustafa97 says: All the Harry Potter Movies have been so important and I love them all so much. Its hard to pick one. However, if I had to pick one it definitely would be Goblet of Fire. THe reason for that is because of all the magical tasks in the triwizard tournament and the quidditch world cup. It definitely broadened the mind of all the readers/watchers of Harry Potter, because it showed their was more to the wizarding community than just Hogwarts and Britain. Also, that was the movie where everything changed (since Voldemort came back) The characters had all developed throughout the end, and without the outcome of Goblet of Fire the rest of the series would be a lot different.Avatar Imagelisafer says: I really loved Deathly Hallows Part 2 because it was the culmination of the whole series and summed everything up beautifully. It was also the only Potter film (although I adored all of them) that made me cry. Both Snape's memories and Ron seeing Fred lying in the Great Hall had me crying like a schoolgirl. The emotions were so on target for me. It was beautiful all-around.Avatar ImageScarlette says: My favorite film is Prisoner of Azkaban. The shift in tone from the first 2 movies was done perfectly with touches of darkness and quirkiness from Cuaron. I also really enjoyed how they worked in the small hints during the Time-Turner scene.Avatar Imagejchpfan says: I think my favorite film is the first one, Sorcerer's Stone. It was the one that set the tone and established the cast as the characters from the book. It was the beginning of the magical journey on film and let fans know that the books could be adapted faithfully to the big screen. I still feel that this film along with Chamber of Secrets were the most true to the books and I appreciate that. Avatar Imagejchpfan says: I think my favorite film is the first one, Sorcerer's Stone.

Avatar Imagefrohriep04@aol.com says: My favorite Harry Potter movie would have to be the Goblet Of Fire. The reason is because of the Triwizard Tournament. I loved all the tasks that the champions had to do. It was such a good movie.There was a lot of newer characters in the movie that I thought was great. I loved Victor Krum and Cedric Diggary. I was sad at the end though when Cedric died.Avatar Imagecalebkrieg says: My favorite Harry Potter film would have to be Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. It was my first Harry Potter film that I was able to see at a midnight showing; this movie was absolutely spectacular. It had everything from tying up the loose ends about Snape’s true alliance to finally seeing Hermione and Ron kiss. This film also showed Voldemort finally being obliterated; who didn’t love that? It was the only film that actually made me cry at the end. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was a true masterpiece of epic proportions. It completed my childhood!Avatar ImageBernie.K says: I liked the Chamber of Secrets. I hadn't read the books at the time so I was thinking at the end that when Harry asks Dumbledor why he and Tom Riddle seemed alike. Instead of the easy answer where Dumbledor says that Voldemort transfered some of his power to harry I was thinking that the two of them were related through family members.Avatar Image449tds says: My favorite film is the Sorcerer's Stone. I'll never forget seeing all of the things/places I'd visualized while reading actually coming to life.Avatar ImageAllieRM says: My Favorite Harry Potter film is Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. This is true because you see deeper into some characters that you couldn't see into in the previous ones. You see the fear Malfoy is dealing with over his inability to fulfill his orders from Voldemort. Ron and Hermione have their first "real" relationship type fight. and Harry starts to really realize his love for Ginny. Its just an all around really good book, and an all around Great movie!Avatar ImageFlowerMalfoy says: "prisoner of azkaban because its where the journey unfolds. you learn the truth about siriu black and petter pettigrew you also see how snape kept his promise. to protect harry, and he did when lupin in his werewolf form was attacking. you learn how lupin is a werewolf and about the marurders and i think that this is extremly crucial to the polt but i also like how the actors portray their characters its like when you see snape you dont think alan rickman you just think severus snape and the same for sirius, and lupin" FlowerMalfoy posted a comment on the news article Leaky's Black Friday Avatar ImageFlowerMalfoy says: "prisoner of azkaban because its where the journey unfolds. you learn the truth about siriu black and petter pettigrew you also see how snape kept his promise. to protect harry, and he did when lupin in his werewolf form was attacking. you learn how lupin is a werewolf and about the marurders and i think that this is extremly crucial to the polt but i also like how the actors portray their characters its like when you see snape you dont think alan rickman you just see snape there and the same with lupin or siriusAvatar ImageMattanous says: Goblet of Fire. I love the athletic aspect of it, and it was the first time I really felt that any of the lead characters might be in peril. Also, I think it's great for people who dislike the Twilight series. They can pretend that Voldemort kills Edward. Heh.Avatar ImageMattanous says: Goblet of Fire.

Heh.Avatar ImageSevsTam says: I think over all, in spite of (and because of, I suppose) the fact that it made me cry nearly from start to finish, Deathly Hallows Part 2 is my favorite. I love the emotional intensity of it. Alan Rickman's performance was amazingly expressive and moving in every scene he was in. All of the actors were amazing and those little thrilling moments (the re-lighting of the torches in the great hall when Hogwarts was retaken from the Death Eaters, Maggie Smith's voice echoing when she said "Boom!", the adults casting the protective spells over the school, etc.) were so exciting and made me feel like I was right there with them through it all. The exchange between Remus Lupin and Kingsley Shacklebolt ("It is the quality of one's convictions that determine success" "Who said that?" "Me.") sticks with me as one of my favorite scenes. Matthew Lewis showed us all what a hero Neville had grown up into and it was impossible not to be so proud of him. There are just so many great moments that I can't help but choose it as my favorite of the films, even though I truly love them all.

I still can't get over how much I love 7.1. The acting, the tone, the cinematography,and the animation sequence. I love 3, because it showed the shift from child friendly film to adult/teenage film. The directing was very well done, and it was easy to follow the changes in time. I watched this film with a non-fan, and it's the first time I didn't have to answer questions. The trio did a wonderful job with the script and action sequences. Still love that quick gasp and hand holding session between Ron and Hermione. Avatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: I am partial to "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" for several reasons. I love the suspense Harry feels as letters come looking for him and Hagrid appears bearing such wonderful news. I love Richard Harris as Dumbledore because he caught that quirkiness Dumbledore has in the books. And finally, I like that the movie was long enough and the book was short enough that very little needed to be cut out of the beloved story in order to adapt it to screen.Avatar ImageFlowerMalfoy

off the pages, without leaving critical things out or adding pointless plot points at the expense of crucial ones. I really appreciated the way they captured the episodic quality of the plot in book 7, bringing it full circle back to book 1 and the episodic plot points. Really loved 7.2 as well, but was incredibly disappointed by the Kings Cross scene and the way they almost completely abandoned the Dumbledore plot.

However, I think I'd have to pick Prisoner of Azkaban. Why? First there is the blowing up of Aunt Marge - it was really cruel of her to say those things about Harry's parents. Then there is Sirius. Here we are introduced to a member of Harry's family that truly cares for him. Buckbeak and Lupin. In this one the battle is one against jealousy and cruelty and the main mystery is about finding the truth about the Grim, Sirius, and Peter Pettigrew. I know I'm not stating this as clearly as I could, but overall this seemed to be about family and not soley about Voldemort. Loved it!Avatar Imagepineapple0827 says: My favorite film is 7 as a whole.
