How many people only like the first two Harry potter films?

I am not a huge fan of the movies, the books i love with a passion, the movies how ever could have been far better. I only liked the first two, the films alone are excellent, and then when the deleted scenes are added, they get even better. I liked the final two-part 7th film, David Yates i believe directed it, well he did a really good job with what they gave him.

I like the first two better because they added alot more of the books into the films, making it more cannon, and for me and others, more enjoyable.

Go ahead and answer the poll honestly

I think the only ones I've watched are the first three and I thought they were alright popcorn fare at best.

^Yeah, that's how I would describe them.

The first movie provides a terrific example of just how badly John Williams needs to retire.


"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."

I'm a lot more demanding than you then, seeing as how I disliked all of the movies. I only watched the first three anyway.

I like them all, but I prefer the films after Chris Columbus left. There's just something about the first two that doesn't appeal to me as much as the later ones do, I just don't know what.

I'm sure that if I hadn't read the books at the time, I would hardly care about any of the movies.

The third movie was an insult. I can't conceive of any rational being believing otherwise.

I also feel the first two were the best movies, but I also enjoyed the sixth as well.

I love all the movies, and the books. Personally the third film is my favorite.

I love the books and the movies are good entertainment but now that I have branched out in reading and watching movies I see how they are not that amazing compared to other literature. I grew up with Harry Potter so I'll always like it but compared to things like Lord of the Rings, A Song of Ice and Fire, and many classic novels they are substandard.

Eh, they're all pretty decent. Should re-read the books sometime.

I quite liked the later movies. They're not amazing, but I think they do the books justice. Actually wasn't much a fan of the first two and the fourth.

I read and love all the books as they were released. (I was only a young'un when I first read Harry Potter as part of a reading class, I believe.) I also saw and enjoy all the films adaptations. The books are in my top 3 favorite series and the movies are in my top 5 series/movies. Currently, I still enjoy to see the movies and now enjoy reading the e-books on my iPod touch.

I've only seen the last two (and read the first book in between), and I thought they were pretty good. Can't speak for any of the others, though.

I think the first two not only are more faithful to the books, but have no plotholes (small or big). The same can't be said about the rest.

It's expected to cut many parts of the books, but at least cut the whole subplot, and not put just part of it and leave the audience guessing (it didn't happen to me because I've read the books, but it's easy to notice). A movie based on a book should be able to stand alone and not be dependable of it.

As a die hard Potterhead, I can't say I have any preference. I love 'em all.

How can you dislike all of the movies when you have only seen the first three?

I must be in the vast majority because I always thought Ootp was the best HP film imho.
