My Ranking of the ‘Harry Potter’ Movies (Updated)

I’ve recently done a Harry Potter marathon at which case my feelings for certain films have changed exponentially. So, I have no choice but to change my ranking of these films. Enjoy!

8. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince isn’t a bad movie but compared to the other Harry Potter films it’s kind of a bore. I really do love the end when Harry and Dumbledore go after the fake Horcrux or when Snape has to kill Dumbledore. There’s a lot of emotion in those last few minutes and yeah, who can’t help shedding a tear as Harry cries over Dumbledore’s body. If the whole movie was like the last thirty minutes it’d definitely be higher on this list.

The ‘Harry Potter’ Movies: Ranked from Worst to Best by Rotten Tomatoes

Harry Potter is a franchise as synonymous with iconism as the Star Wars franchise and its movies can be utterly riveting. I happen to love them all and I have a clear comprehension of which order I rank the films but…what does Rotten Tomatoes say? I’m about to find out. Enjoy!

7. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1: 77%

Harry Potter and his friends, Ron and Hermione, must go on a dangerous scavenger hunt for the items that, if destroyed, will lead to Voldemort’s death. There’s some romantic drama, revelations, and plenty of Harry Potter goodness, but according to the critics, it’s the worst installment in the Harry Potter series.

What’s Your Favorite ‘Harry Potter’ Movie?

It’s Sunday and you know what that means; it’s time for another Who’s Your Favorite (or What’s Your Favorite in this case.) The Harry Potter franchise is one of the most beloved franchises in the world as J.K Rowling introduced to a fictional world of wonder full of magic and magical creatures. Harry Potter was the perfect protagonist flanked by the perfect best buddies, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger. Voldemort is an impeccable antagonist, for he is truly as frightening as he is supposed to be. And these movies, based on the novels, are utterly outstanding. And that’s why I wanted them to be a part of this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite? I hope you enjoy!

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is a magical movie through and through because it is the film that introduces fans to the Wizarding World. This is the movie where we see Platform 9 3/4 for the first time, Diagon Alley, Hogwarts, Dumbledore, Voldemort, the Forbidden Forest, Quidditch, etc. There are many other films in the franchise but there is always the beginning of the story and this is a rather magical beginning indeed.

My Experience Binge-Watching ‘Harry Potter’

I don’t watch the Harry Potter movies often. In fact, I might see a Harry Potter movie every three to six months, and I usually only ever watch either Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban or Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. So, this time when I got the urge to watch a Harry Potter movie I decided to binge-watch the series starting with the Prisoner of Azkaban over the course of two days and I had a blast. I had so much fun in fact that I wanted to share with you all my experience watching each film and I hope you enjoy. 🙂

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

If you’ve read my post talking about my three favorite Harry Potter films you will know that this installment in the eight movie franchise is my favorite of them all. Whenever I get the chance to watch a Harry Potter movie this is the film I always run to because it’s so good. I mean, it starts with Harry Potter turning his terrible aunt into a human balloon! Lol. As Ron would say, “Brilliant.” 🙂

I also love that this movie introduced werewolves because that’s something you don’t normally see in fantasy films. It always used to creep me out when you could hear the werewolves in the Forbidden Forest but to see Professor Lupin become a werewolf is always one part terrifying/one part extraordinary.

And the ending with Harry zipping away on his new broomstick (undoubtedly given to him by his godfather, Sirius Black) is just magical every time I watch it. (*chill bumps*)

My Top Three Favorite ‘Harry Potter’ Films

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets was one of the first films I saw as a child and it dazzled me. The Baselisk, Voldemort, the Quidditch match, it was a fantasy world unlike anything I’d ever seen before. And the main characters were children, something you don’t see a lot in movies as good as Harry Potter! In fact, for a while, I loved the Harry Potter franchise more than Star Wars, until I got a little older and Star Wars became better and better while the Harry Potter films started becoming a little boring in comparison. Recently I’ve watched Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, a movie I’ve seen over a dozen times (I highly enjoyed it) and so today I would like to share with you my three favorite Harry Potter films. Enjoy!

1. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

This is the Harry Potter movie I’ve watched the most (because I owned it as a child) and it always made me so happy every time I watched it. The flying car took my imagination to other places, I loved the screaming plant thingies (I forgot what they’re called,) the ghost girl used to always make me laugh because she was so perfectly weird, and who doesn’t love the scene with all of the spiders? Brilliant. This movie will always have a special place in my heart because it was one of the first films I was introduced to as a baby girl.

2. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

I’ve only seen this movie, I’d say, four of five times and while it isn’t one of the Harry Potter films I most familiar with this is hands down the scariest installment of them all because it’s the movie where Voldemort comes back. *shudder* I really don’t like Voldemort. He’s so scary.

It’s also a very good movie as well. I love the tournament, I love the dragons and the frightening mermaids, and like I said before, the end of the film puts the icing on the cake as Voldemort is brought back to life.

3. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)

This is my favorite installment of the franchise and, as a child, was the scariest installment as well. I remember being taken to the movies at six-years-old to go see this film. It was definitely a frightening experience. I’m going to tell you right now, I’m a huge scaredy-cat. I do not like scary movies, especially when I was little, and the third Harry Potter was part fantasy/horror film for me at that young age. I still remember covering my eyes several times as I watched it in the movie theaters and can you blame me? This movie’s got a scary (but no so scary) black dog/Sirius Black, Dementors, the most horrifying creation ever, and werewolves! I was terrified.

Now as an adult I can watch it without a hint of fear but I still remember the horror I felt watching this movie as a baby. It’s one of the reasons, however, that I like the movie so much. Part of the reason why the Harry Potter franchise is so enjoyable is that horror factor but the movies are really good as well.

My favorite part of the third Harry Potter is when Harry and Hermione have to go back in time to save Sirius Black from a terrible fate. It’s such an incredible portion of the film and it really makes the movie enjoyable. It’s also something I’ve never seen since then in a movie, making it extra special. This film has so many incredible layers and at a whopping two hours and twenty-two minutes this movie definitely provides plenty of entertainment.

Well, these are the three Harry Potter films that have always made me either happy or terrified (in a good way) and helped turn me into a Harry Potter fan. And with John Williams (Star Wars) making the iconic musical theme I’m not surprised I love these movies so much. He is truly a legendary composer and I’m so glad he’s still alive so he can continue creating fabulous music.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a magical day.
