Re: A series completed: Analysis of all eight movies in one

The movies

I haven't seen Deathly Hallows Pt. 2, so I'll edit once I have.

Which movie out of all eight of them is your favourite? Why?
Prisoner of Azkaban hands down. All the artistic aspects were top-notch, beautifully directed and casted, and the entire thing just makes me grin like an idiot.
[
B]If you could name one moment which you consider your favourite for all movies which one is it? [/b]
Yikes. I'd say either the Shrieking Shack or the part where the OotP comes into the department of mysteries. WAIT or the whole climax of Goblet of Fire.
Directing

Which director did the best job of portraying the Wizarding World?
Alfonso Cuaṛn.
Would you have preferred one director for all eight movies?
Columbus did well on the first two and did a good job drawing non-readers in, Cuaron obviously was spectacular in a completely different way. I think each director except Newell did a different job and that made the movies more interesting.

Storytelling

Which story arc has been fleshed out the best during the movies? Examples: Coming of Age story of the Trio, Harry vs Voldemort, The Marauder vs Snape, Snape as Dumbledore's inside man etc.
I`d say the coming of age story. The different directors really accented that aspect of the story.

Acting

Which character has had the best portrayal (script wise and acting wise)?
Rickman, Thewlis, and Oldman.
Which actor or actress in their role has been a revelation to you?
Matt Lewis really came into his own in the last 4 movies.

Music

How important has music been to you while watching the movies?
Somewhat, although moreso in the early movies than the later ones.
Who is your favourite music composer?
Williams. He defined the movies musically and wasn`t afraid to try something new.
Which soundtrack is your favourite?
Azkaban
What is your favourite music track?
The Hippogriff one

Cinematography, Set Design, Costume Design etc.

Which movie has the best cinematography?
Prisoner of Azkaban (by faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar)
Best set design (props etc)?
Tie between Azkaban and Phoenix (the department of mysteries is beautiful but I didn`t like the veil room).
Best special effects?
Deathly Hallows Part 2
Best costumes?
I don`t really know
[
B]Overall verdict[/b]
Are you happy with the Harry Potter movies as a completed series?

Goblet and Prince are misses, but other than that, I`m very happy with the series of movies.
