Harry Potter is a bunch of fascinating stories combined and made even better with great music and character development.
6. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
The one that started of Daniel Radcliffe’s career, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone is an excellent movie from those times. With reasonably sound special effects on proper character development, the film lays the foundation for the upcoming stories and does a great job at keeping audiences glued to their seats.
7. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
A movie that I think is a weaker sequel to the first instalment of the series, Chamber of secrets truly fills in the gap between the first arc and the third arc and fulfils its purpose as a film. While it lacks in dynamic storytelling due to narrative flaws, it compensates that with great CGI and good acting.
8. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
The movie is my personal favourite. The prisoner of Azkaban is a film based entirely around the character of Sirius Black. The film brings you back to Hogwarts where the young wizard Harry Potter is trying to find out why Sirius was taken away, and while he is at it, he has to help Lupin attain permanent status at the school.

When wizard authorities suspect Dumbledore of being incapable of handling Hogwarts and secretly conspiring a mutiny against them, political power causes massive clashes between them and Harry’s plea is discredited. Will the wizard authorities ever find out that the dark lord has genuinely returned? The movie is a very dark one as you witness some heartbreaking scenes and question the characters that you have trusted since the beginning.
11. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
When Dumbledore asks Harry to join potions class to retrieve some information for him, Harry, accidentally, stumbles upon an old potions book that belongs to someone called the Half-Blood Prince.

However, things go south very quickly when he has to prove his worth and protect the people from the bandits and their backup weapon, a huge rattlesnake.
