Harry Potter Survey

List the books in order from your favourite to your least favourite.

Prisoner of Azkaban -- I was up all night reading this one. Sirius Black and Remus Lupin are wonderful characters. I love the Dementors. I love the ambiguous ending. It left me wanting more, and that's what a good serial book does.
Goblet of Fire -- Once again, the ambiguous ending makes the book. I also love the tiny hints of romance, the mini-challenges Harry needs to go through to find himself and prove himself. It's an intense book.
Sorcerer's Stone -- Because it's the first, the classic.
Deathly Hallows -- I love Snape.
Half-blood Prince -- More intrigue in this book. Character development is great. But I didn't like how little action was in this book. It's all memory-searching. It takes a long time to actually learn anything.
Order of the Phoenix -- This book seems like a waste of time. We want Voldemort! He just came back to life! And this book is hardly about Voldemort at all. Still good, though.
Chamber of Secrets -- I hardly remember any of this book. I think what makes a good book is its memorability.

List the movies in order from your favourite to your least favourite.

Half-Blood Prince -- the romance is funny and the Dumbledore scenes are excellent.
Goblet of Fire -- I don't understand why no one likes this movie! I thought it was done very well, very true to the book. The highlight of the story is Voldemort's return, but we don't even think about that until it gets there. I also love the moment between Cedric's father and his son when Harry comes back from the graveyard.
Sorceror's Stone -- Once again, it's first. It's classic. It's also so whimsical and happy. A good start to the series. The kids are so cute!
Chamber of Secrets -- It fits the book very well. Goes well with the first movie. I kind of like it for the same reason like number 1.
Order of the Phoenix -- I didn't like the book, so I didn't like the movie much better. I hate Umbridge.
Prisoner of Azkaban -- My favorite book, but my least favorite movie. I am not pleased with the director change, the flukes in the plot. The whole aura of this movie is kind of moldy. It lacks color and vibrancy. Order of the Phoenix was kind of that way too.
