There have been 10 movies released in the 'Harry Potter' universe since 2001, and at least three more on the way.

This list may prove to be quite divisive amongst fans - let us know if your favourite 'Harry Potter' movies rank higher than ours.

10 - 'Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them'

Newt Scamander's debut in cinemas was a bit disappointing, let's be honest. Although the change of location and the introduction of more magical creatures was welcomed, it all just fell a little bit flat. The most memorable moments of the movie revolve around Scamander's interaction with "No-Maj" Jacob Kowalski, and sisters Tina and Queenie.


9 - 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald'

Marginally better, if only just, 'The Crimes of Grindelwald' delved deeper into the wider Wizarding World by taking the action to Europe. The focus of the movie is again less focused on the magical creatures aspect and more on the big baddie Grindelwald. While the action was ramped up for the sequel, the rest of it offered nothing very new, except for Johnny Depp actually giving a decent performance for once. Strap yourselves in for more potential beige shenanigans because there are three more sequels coming down the line.


8 - 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1'

'Deathly Hallows: Part 1' took Harry and his two best mates on an on-the-road journey that lasted just a bit too long, unfortunately. With the three failing to make much headway with Voldemort's Horcruxes, combined with a grumpy Ron, and a dancing Harry and Hermione, it has always felt like an incomplete movie. However, it was the only option the film-makers had, wanting to give the 'Harry Potter' franchise the final hurrah that fans wanted.


7 - 'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix'

This might divide fans. While 'Order of the Phoenix' is one of the better books in the series, its movie counterpart just didn't live up to the hype. The longest of the books, while also being the shortest of the movies, meant that the source material wasn't done to justice. A mopey Daniel Radcliffe, the lack of Quidditch, and the poor execution of the Ministry of Magic battle didn't help either. However, the movie's saving grace came down to one performance - Imelda Staunton's Professor Umbridge.


6 - 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone'

Potter's first movie will always have a special place in our hearts. It was the first time we got to see Hogwarts in all its glory; our first time seeing a Quidditch match unfold before our eyes; and our first immersion into the world of one of the biggest franchises ever been created. 'Philosopher's Stone' is magical, charming, and full of delight. Pity the acting and the CGI hasn't aged well.


5 - 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince'

Certainly a different tone to every other entry in the series, 'Half-Blood Prince' was light on the action but heavy on the teenage angst. Making a welcome return in this movie was Quidditch however, which was left out of the previous two entries, and divided up the moments of teenage drama nicely; not forgetting of course, Draco Malfoy and Professor Snape whose secret plans kept us guessing what the hell was really going on at Hogwarts.


4 - 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets'

A fun, yet more ominous return for our trio remains a fan favourite - if only because of the introduction to one of the biggest fraud's ever seen on our screens. It certainly is a pity that Kenneth Branagh's Professor Gilderoy Lockhart only appeared in one movie and never got to reprise his role like he does in the book version of 'Order of the Phoenix'. Nevertheless, 'Chamber of Secrets' was a brilliant return to the wizarding world and certainly upped the ante with a fully-grown Basilisk roaming around the school.


3 - 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2'

The final entry in the core franchise meant that the final showdown we'd been waiting seven books and eight movies for was about to go down. Hogwarts was naturally the meeting-point for the final stand-off and provided some of the more memorable moments from the entire series; from Maggie Smith's Professor McGonagall shouting "Boom!"; the Malfoys changing allegiances in the final hour (and that awkward Voldemort and Draco hug); to Neville Longbottom's heroic slaying of Nagini - it's a crowd-pleaser for sure.


2 - 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban'

A personal favourite, and one of the better storylines, the film version of 'Prisoner of Azkaban' is known to completely divide 'Potter' fans. Directed by critically-acclaimed Alfonso Cuarón, the third entry in the magical world saw a welcomed departure from the childish nature of the first two, and introduced a newer, darker Hogwarts overrun with Dementors and werewolves. Many believe Cuarón's version is more style over substance, but we won't hear any of it.


1 - 'Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire'

The 'Goblet of Fire' is a true tour-de-force movie that it just had to be our number one. The movie based on the second-longest book in the franchise managed to stay close to the source material, while also adopting its own unique identity. The movie has got everything we like all rolled up into one - dragons, Brendan Gleeson, the Irish Quidditch team, and a hopelessly romantic Hagrid. We really wish we could watch Voldemort rising out of the cauldron for the first time, again.
