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.

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

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.

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!

As a movie Half Blood Prince is my favorite. I liked the tower 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.

I love Deathly Hallows pt 2 for a few reasons. 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 Voldemort

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).

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.

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 :)

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

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. :)

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.

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 forever
