Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Yes, we agree with you that the child acting in this movie is pretty awful but there's something so magical about these films that just doesn't exist in any other Harry Potter movie. Anyways, what more could you want from Harry Potter other than that magical, child-like feeling? Maybe it's just the nostalgia talking but you can't argue that this first film has more iconic lines than any other Harry Potter.


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part.2

It's hard to bring a series of this magnititude to a close and do it justice. Somehow this movie did just that though. We are treated to watching Voldemort dying by slowly disintegrating away into tiny peices of burning paper which I always found interesting. Also Neville completes his glow up and becomes an absolute beast, that's always worth watching.


Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

This movie is where the tone of Harry Potter changes the rest of the series too much darker themes. It almost feels like a well-made horror film at times by introducing Dementors and that single scene of Lupin turning into a Werewolf. The Dementors coming on to the Hogwarts express still makes me feel a bit chilly.


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part.1

When this first came out I remember not liking it so much but after rewatching it's definitely one of the best Harry Potter movies. The entire movie is just tension on more tension and it's put together really well. Even though it really is just a setup to Part.2, it genuinely stands up on its own.


Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Growing up this one was always my favorite. The dragons were amazing and obviously, Voldemort returning makes for one of the greatest sequences in all 8 movies. Pair that with the Mad-Eye not having been Mad-Eye the whole time and we've got a top tier story here.


Harry Potter and Chamber of Secrets

The only film that somewhat matches the magical innocence of the first movie, Chamber of Secrets is almost as iconic as the first film. The flying car and Dobby are iconic associations with Harry Potter at this point and I'd argue we have the best quidditch scene in all 8 films with Harry's showdown against Mafloy and Slytherin.


Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Obviously, this movie ends with Dumbledore's death at the hands of Snape, setting up the biggest plot twist in Harry Potter. However I think this movie gets overlooked for how funny it is. Harry walking around having taken the Felix Felicis potion is peak Potter comedy. There's also Ron's quidditch tryout and him accidentally eating the love chocolates meant for Harry. The point is that even though this film ends on the saddest possible note, it very much makes you smile the whole way throw.


Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix

Ok, so everyone hates Umbridge more than Voldemort, that's a widely accepted fact at this point. Aside from that though this movie is a little bit boring. Its saving grace of course is the final battle between Dumbledore and Voldemort where we get the best visuals of any wizarding duel in all 8 films. They also kill Serious but I don't want to talk about that, it still upsets me.
