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.

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. :)

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. :)

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.

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.

My favorite film is the first one because that’s when the film magic started.

Deathly Hallows Part 2. It really showed just how far the actors had come. And it was very emotional. Just a great film.

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 :)

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.

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 ;)

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.

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.

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
