I voted for POA, but shouldn't there be an option for GOF?

Anyway, I think POA is the best because it was directed fabulously, with stunning camera work, lighting and background detail, the best musical score, the best story, the best characterisation (people say Hermione was the focus and was a pink power ranger, but to me she was always a pink power ranger, and I don't know how you can say she is the focus when it's Harry who fights the dementors, Harry whose godfather is chasing Pettigrew, Harry who rides on Buckbeak, Harry who rides the Knight Bus, etc..) and the best acting. The change in the grounds was great, gave the landscape a real personality, and I think Cuaron managed to capture the pure spirit of the books without sticking rigidly to the plot.

I voted for HBP. I would have voted for OotP, but I'm not a HBP thread junkie for nothing!!!

But I voted for HBP, not OOTP!!!

My vote changed when GoF was added!!!!

Can anyone change it back?

If you can't change it, OotP was my choice of the movies that are out...

I changed it. Guess the other votes are right still since they are in front of the GoF option.

I voted for CoS.
I hope to be able to vote for HBP, after it comes out, but there is always the chance that I will be disappointed. I hope not but only time and watching the movie will tell.

OotP was my choice.

I am sure HBP will be very good but I can't vote for something I've not seen yet.

I was torn between PoA and OotP but I voted for OotP. Neville is awesome in it, Luna is introduced, and Dan does his best acting to date.

Just as Mad_Druid, I was torn between OotP and PoA.
But I voted the fifth movie, PoA has the best cinematography and directing, but the screenplay is really bad.

Could not have said it better myself

I think the acting in this film was great (Emma pre eyebrow takeover...thanks Newell! ) and everyone was on top form. POA got the feeling right moreso than Order..which was ALMOST there..but not quiet.

I'm still hoping and waiting for a film to top POA. But overall this film just is the most solid. John Williams soundtrack is AMAZING and works VERY well with the film and the fact that 'A Window From the Past' wasn't used in OOTP makes it not the best for me by default

I have voted for HBP. I know it's not out yet, but it was my second favorite book and I really think they are going to create the movie to be like the book in many ways. My second favorite Harry Potter movie is OotP, than GoF, PoA, CoS, and SS. It may be in order, but this is the order of how I like them.

I voted for OotP, but PoA is a close second.

GoF. I would have actually voted for CoS but I prefer GoF because I think it was the best. COS was the closest in that it followed the book extremley well.

PS/SS. Although I was torn between it and CoS. I loved how Columbus as director, and he did an amazing job introducing the wizarding world. I also loved how close to the book it remained.(Even though that is why many people hate it. ) I don't have as many problems with these two as I do the rest of the series.

Re: Favorite / Best Harry Potter movie so far? v3 NOW WITH POLLING GOODNESS!!!

I picked OoTP. I really like how this one was done and I think it is the one that stayed most true to the book and even had little things that only avid book fans would catch.

I hope HBP is going to be good, but we will just have to wait and see

Re: Favorite / Best Harry Potter movie so far? v3 NOW WITH POLLING GOODNESS!!!

I voted for PoA too. It was amazing. I really loved all of the suttle hints at Time throughout the movie, the great acting performances of Gary Oldman and David Thewlis, and most of all just the dark sense of something bad coming that was present throughout the whole movie. They say that happened in OotP, but I really saw nothing like that. OotP was by far the worst movie.

Not a huge HP movie fan but I voted OotP
