10. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (IMDB: 6.5)

The Crimes of Grindelwald has disappointed harry potter fans for many reasons. The main reason is this movie is not giving us a proper story line to follow which is heart of the Harry Potter movies.

 We have seen Harry Potter characters and all of the characters have their own unique story and personality. In crimes of Grindelwald, there are too many characters and lack the story.

The plot is boring and not so interesting that it has disappoint all the expectations of the fans who were waiting for it since a long time.

9. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (IMDB: 7.3)

This is the 9th film of harry Potter movies which continued as a different series by fantastic beasts. It doesn’t have much of the harry potter references and that make it even better as this movie creates great expectations for this series to continue.

‘Fantastic beasts’ movie shows us a new protagonist, Newt Scamander from Hufflepuff Hogwarts house and loves magical animals and understands them. The beasts are amazing and well written that only jk Rowling can write them.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them shows the magical world in the New York where as Harry Potter films shows mostly Hogwarts as they grew there.

8. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (IMDB: 7.4)

2nd year of Harry Potter starts and the chamber of secrets opens with it. Dobby the house elf of Malfoy family tries to warn Harry Potter, more like killing him in order to stop harry from going to Hogwarts.

Only true heir of slytherin can open this chamber and control the beast within it. harry potter chamber of secrets comes with new defence against the dark arts teacher Gilderoy Lockhart which makes it hilarious when you know that he is the stupidest person.

Harry potter can speak parseltongue; ability to speak to snakes, which is not normal even in the wizarding world.

7. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (IMDB: 7.5)

Order of the Phoenix shows us more about Harry Potter and Sirius black relationship and the group of Dumbledore’s Army, which helps a lot in harry potter and the deathly hallows in many ways including learning of the Patronus charm which helps them defend against dementors.

The pink toad face Umbridge made the story of Order of the Phoenix much interesting. Many people think that she is worse than Voldemort. Like she is so wicked and can even produce a Patronus. I don’t want to imagine where does her happiest memories come from?

order of the phoenix book has more of Harry Potter and Sirius Black relationship than movie. You can listen to jim dale order of the phoenix audiobook for different character voices.

6. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (IMDB: 7.6)

The journey to the magical world begins. the Sorcerer’s Stone is the base where you start to understand the wizarding world of Harry Potter.

How being a magical person harry struggles with the Dursleys due to things happening to him which seems like magic!

In the Sorcerer’s Stone Harry makes friends for the first time at Hogwarts and learns a lot about the wizarding world and about himself as he was popular form the start. The boy who lived and survived from Voldemort.

Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger are two friends that makes famous golden trio of Gryffindor.

5. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince  (IMDB: 7.6)

Half Blood Prince is the story about Severus Snape. His father was a muggle and mother was a witch. That is why he called himself Half Blood Prince. It shows the memories of Snape and Harry Potter’s mother from their village and Hogwarts times.

Severus Snape was an introvert and intelligent student from the beginning. He had even invented new spells in school times at Hogwarts. Harry’s father and other marauders used to bully Half Blood Prince.

Snape helped Dumbledore to save and protect Harry from Voldemort even though he looked like James Potter who bullied Snape.

4. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 (IMDB: 7.7)

The end begins! Deathly Hallows Part 1 is where the golden trio knows nothing about horcruxes, specially Deathly Hallows movies. They start hunting horcruxes.

Lord Voldemort and risen and death eaters are again creating chaos and killing a lot of people including muggles.

In search for the horcruxes, they infiltrate the ministry which is under control of Voldemort now. The golden trio learns about the deathly hallows from Luna Lovegood’s father and that Voldemort is after the strongest wand – elder wand.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 ends with elder wand getting in possession of Voldemort.

3. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (IMDB: 7.7)

The Hogwarts year of the sports among wizarding schools. The Triwizard tournament is held at Hogwarts and Cedric Diggory of hufflepuff represents Hogwarts school. The goblet of fire choses Harry Potter as second competitor from Hogwarts.

Of course it would, the movies called Harry Potter. and… dumbledore goes crazy, did you put your name in the goblet of fire? (Thinking your time is not ripe to die yet. Ha-ha!)

The tasks are amazing and we want more of wizarding world tournaments. The end comes with a great twist when Goblet of Fire turns out to be a portkey.

2. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (IMDB: 7.9)

Prisoner of Azkaban is one of the best movies of Harry Potter. It introduces the worst creature dementors, the best defence against the dark arts teacher Remus Lupin and the godfather Sirius Black.

The Prisoner of Azkaban also shows the marauders story which people really liked, especially the book.

But Sirius Black could not prove his innocence as Peter Pettigrew escaped and Sirius had to live in hidings.

1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2   (IMDB: 8.1)

Deathly Hallows is the best because it is the conclusion of the wizarding world of Harry Potter. It all ends here! This franchise is also famous due to its books.

Harry Potter books have better explanation and more story of magical world than harry potter movies.

Harry Potter and the deathly hallows jim dale audiobooks are best for those who want to knows more than just deathly hallows movies. Books also explains why harry potter did not die in the forbidden forest.
