Franchise of Harry Potter is one of the most popular and successful in the history of movies. Last book was released 14 years ago, we watched last film ten years ago and still these world gives millions of dollars. The creator of Harry Potter — Joanne Rowling, created amazing world, which lives in many hearts of several generations and will live in the future, same like Star Wars or Lord of the Rings. This franchise is not only about books, now it’s also about great films, films helped spread and increase popularity a lot. But when you make 8 films, you just can’t do all of them perfect, as LOTR did with 3 films. So here is our ranking of best and worst movies, from worst to best(anyway all of them good).
8. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
First this is the longest film of franchise — 162 minutes, in this film movie directors tried to insert everything from book plot to film, that affected quality of film a lot. Director of the film, Columbus destroyed line of Dobby, had some issues with showing Hogwarts’s dark times. It is still good, but really worse than any other film.
7. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 1
That was hard from the start to make film only about one part of book, but anyway that problem started from the book. For readers was hard to read sliced book. First part of the film goes well, but to the end it becomes worse and less interesting. Main problem — that first film was just base for last film, which will be great.
6. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
That was really important book for Rowling and same important film, in that book she improved her writing talent a lot, but she needed to expand world of Franchise and bring new characters in it. Also, she must include a lot of huge story lines, as love and other teens problems. Appearance of Voldemort was not showed that good, not enough emotions.
5. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
Directors of these film had everything to make the best film from it. The Book was really amazing with lots of magic and cool stories. But they did not use given resources. That was hard film, because all kids was young and story was using eyes of child. But anyway this is great start of franchise, probably they did their best. We can’t judge them.
4. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Interesting fact — only this film was not created by Stevie Cloves. Film shows us story about growing of Harry Potter, how he try to find his place in life, try to understand everything happening to him. We saw the best scenes of Potter and Snape in this part. Which ended with amazing fight with all characters versus each other.
3. Harry Poter and the Half-Blood Prince
For a lot of people this is the best film for them, because it is basically hilarious. We could name it as comedic. But we can’t, it still talks about problems with half blood kids, how they become subject of violence, so we can both cry and laugh. Also, you need to remember great work of filming team, picture is amazing.
2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2
As you remember first part was bad, because it was just base for this part. This part ended all story lines, ended these franchise and great 8 movies story. It basically couldn’t be bad. Everything ended where it started — in Hogwarts. Directors needed to show deaths of characters in right way, so everyone will sit with tears on their eyes after death of Snape.
1. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
This is the best film on our list, at least because this is the most important movie in the franchise. A lot of very important storylines, new characters, new paths for Harry Potter. The film was doomed to success because the book was that good.
