Re: A series completed: Analysis of all eight movies in one

The movies

Which movie out of all eight of them is your favourite? Why?
I'd have to say DH2, just because I love the ebb and flow of the battle, the Gringott's sequence is simply spot on, and The Prince's Tale... There are no words.

If you could name one moment which you consider your favourite for all movies which one is it?
This one is hard. I think the most heartrendingly beautiful moment is seeing Tonks and Lupin in the great hall after their deaths, their hands nearly touching. I held it together until then, but that one moment made me cry like a baby.

Directing

Which director did the best job of portraying the Wizarding World?
It's a close one, but I'd have to say Yates.

Would you have preferred one director for all eight movies?
No, I love the variety. Just as all of the characters and the books change, I feel like the different directors bring a wonderful new perspective each time.

Storytelling

Which story arc has been fleshed out the best during the movies? Examples: Coming of Age story of the Trio, Harry vs Voldemort, The Marauder vs Snape, Snape as Dumbledore's inside man etc.
I feel like the obvious is the trio, but for me, I think my favorite is the evolution of Voldemort. How he moves from a parasite, to a weak creature, to a powerful wizard, and then his unraveling as his horcruxes are destroyed.

Acting

Which character has had the best portrayal (script wise and acting wise)?
I feel like my favorites are a tie between Helena B-C (I have a soft spot for Bellatrix), Maggie Smith as McGonagall, and, of course, Alan Rickman as Snape.

Which actor or actress in their role has been a revelation to you?
Hmm, I'd have to say Emma Watson.

Music

How important has music been to you while watching the movies?
I feel like it ties it all together, and it's very important.

Who is your favourite music composer?
Ooh, tough one. I'm going to say Desplat.

Which soundtrack is your favourite?
DH1

What is your favourite music track?
Farewell to Dobby, nearly has me in tears every time.

Cinematography, Set Design, Costume Design etc.

Which movie has the best cinematography?
DH1

Best set design (props etc)?
Oh, hmm... DH2, I love the intricacy of the RoR.

Best special effects?
OotP, the battle at the Ministry is exquisite (imo)

Best costumes?
GoF, I absolutely love the Yule Ball scene.

Overall verdict
Are you happy with the Harry Potter movies as a completed series?
Yes, of course they are quite different from the books, but judging them separately, they were fantastic.
