Right now, were roughly ten weeks away from the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, and in the week before the film's release I do plan on doing formal reviews of each of the installments in the series. However, I feel like now is as good a time as any to rank the films in the series in terms of quality, before it becomes truly apparent that this fall's installment will top the list. I'd elaborate further than simply giving you the names, but that would take all the purpose out of the reviews. For now, I'll leave you with where the episodes rank for me, and allow you to ponder them until November.
6. Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix
5. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
4. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
3. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
2. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
1. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Also, in case you wanted something more to chew on than that, they just released the first TV spot for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, and it's very specifically focusing on Part 1. It's nice to see that they have plenty going on in the first half, and it looks like the perfect fusion of polished gritty visuals and epic scenery. Check it out!
