    Door is that way. :getmecoat:

    My favourite one is The Order Of The Phoenix, where it pretty much ends with Luna saying:

    "Things we lose have a way of comig back to us in the end, if not always in the way we expect."

    Deathly Hallows Part 1.

    The first two have great nostalgia value (for me anyway), got the casting perfect (Richard Harris was far better as Dumbledore) and stuck to the book well but obviously the child acting isn't too great and the films don't feel particularly engaging. Prisoner of Azkaban is my second favourite and is a very enjoyable watch, but it doesn't explain some key points (a trend which would worsen later on). Goblet of Fire also very fun, but some bizarre decisions on what to take and leave from the book; admittedly this was when the books started getting massive. Order of the Phoenix I hated at first; nowadays I find it works quite well for isolated viewing despite its many flaws in the bigger picture. Half-Blood Prince was okay. But DHP1 I find the most emotionally resonant; it has the length to stick to the book (so did the first two films of course but naturally the scope and quality is far better by the seventh book and the seventh film), it has many great scenes even with all the camping stuff that people seem to hate (and I would actually include some of that as the good stuff), it explores the main characters better than any other film in the series, and it benefits from the novelty value of having the characters outside of Hogwarts. DHP2 I liked at first but looking back it's such a hilarious deus ex machina fest (DHP1 is too but generally in situations of lower stakes, so it doesn't feel quite so egregious) and could have been far, far better given the source material so really I think it's mediocre at best.

    Apologies for the rant, but I decided to rewatch all the films just before going off to uni and I had to use my experience for some purpose..

    Never seen any of them or read the books.

    However, it is so engrained in society that I do know they get their letters delivered by owls and they play a game called quiditch. That is pretty powerful, I must say. Big up JK Rowling.

    Firstly, if you do read the books/watch the films, welcome to the fandom.

    Secondly, i love all of the films for different things. However, i highly recommend reading the books first if you can as the character development for some characters is greater in the books than the films. For example, their is a character called Peeves in the book series that did not make it in the films for various reasons.

    I shall not say anything more.
