Re: Favorite / Best Harry Potter movie so far? v2

I think after seeing OotP, it will be my favourite, because people have been saying David Yates was the best director so far. But for right now, it's POA. I loved it.

Re: Favorite / Best Harry Potter movie so far? v2

I think the films just keep getting better and better as they go along so my favourite by far is GoF, however judging by what Ive seen of OotP it looks like this will soon be my favourite.
Not only is the acting getting better and better, but the CGI are sooo much better, I think now the producers are realising how much money they can make off these films, they are now speding more money on these parts, when you look back at TPS the CGI are cringeworthy, now however theyre fantastic

I thought maybe it has something to do with the upcoming books but nothing has turned up...what do you guys think?
I think this part was included in the films just to show the nastiness of Draco Malfoys character. I dont think it had any real significance to the plot.
I think they do this quite alot throughout the films, just add tiny bits, maybe even just a little bit of dialogue here and there to allow the audience to interpret the character am little bit more deeply.

My favorite has to be GoF. The mood of the film was on target, but the music set the tone throughout the movie.

I just saw OotP and it is now my favorite, the previous favorite being GoF. I like that OotP was a more dark/moody, and I like the development of the main character relationships. But HBP is my favorite book of the series (so far, but DH is catching up!) and I'm looking forward to seeing what they do for the HBP movie.

My favorite movie was Goblet of Fire, but my favorite book was Prisoner of Azkaban. It had the best plot, the fourth movie was just more exciting (and Ralph Fiennes was AWESOME!)

Re: Favorite / Best Harry Potter movie so far? v2

I am most fond of OOtP although up to this point it has been GoF. My children and I have HP movie marathon days about once every few months and my favorite film seems to shift and swing depending on my mood on the day of the film viewing.

Re: Favorite / Best Harry Potter movie so far? v2

PoA. I can't believe how many people say GoF! PoA was my fave because it followed the book pretty well and flowed together really well. GoF cut out waaaaaay to much from the book. OotP is my 2nd fave. It didn't follow the book as well as PoA, but it was better than GoF. It didn't flow as well as PoA, but it was better than GoF. SS and CoS were pretty cheesy and boring IMO.

Definitely OotP, basically because it was my favorite book before DH. I love watching the characters grow older, and the story lines grow more intense. =)

I'd say it's a tie between the Goblet of Fire and the Order of the Phoenix. :I

They're both excellent movies.

I would have to say that Order of the Phoenix is my favorite, followed by COS, GOF, PS, and then POA.

Totally OotP. They cut a lot of the book, but it (the movie) was very stylistic and had a more grown-up atmosphere. I liked it a lot.

Order of the Phoenix is my new favorite!! I agree about the more adult/dark atmosphere and seeing the characters get older. The battle at the MoM was awesome!

Order of the Phoenix is my favourite now! Visually, it was a hundred times better than the others, and the acting was brilliant for the most part. Loved it!

I love POA. I think Gary Oldman and David Thewlis are brilliant actors and it just stuck to the book. OOTP comes a close second though, it's probably my least favourite book in the series but I think it translated into film brilliantly.

Re: Favorite / Best Harry Potter movie so far? v2

In my opinion The Prisoner of Azkaban is the best Harry Potter movie so far.
Alfonso Cuarón, who imo is the best Harry Potter director so far, made the movie just the way I had imagined it would be; Good with not to many flashing lights and wild camera movement. OotP was hardly good at all, and if it was it was because of Evanna Lynch's great performance, Luna was very much like I had imagined her and that really did boost the whole movie. Lynch had a really good way of making me smile, while the rest of it wasn't all that good.

I'm really looking forward to HBP and DH, and I hope they will be made in a different style than OotP. I also hope they bring back Cuarón for the DH movie, as I believe he would really make it as great as it should be.

OotP (then PS, CoS, GoF, PoA) because I found in interesting and since I had read the book I understood it despite all the cuts.
