Right now, I’d say 7.1, because it’s probably the first time that the movie really seemed to come right 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. Other than that, it was great!

my favorite harry potter film is the goblet of fire. i love the action of the entire triwizard tournament. and every single time i watch, i get weepy at amos diggory’s reaction to cedric’s death. so tragic.

It’s really hard to choose a favorite movie. 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!

My favorite film is 7 as a whole. They are the culmination of the series and it was just amazing to see it play out. That for sure is the best of all of the films!

My Favorite harry potter film would have to be “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.” I still swoon when Hermione comes out at the Yule Ball in her gorgeous pink gown. She looks absoulutly beautiful! And I love the look on Harry and Ron’s faces when they see her for the first time in the gown. Hilarious!
