Unfortunately focuses on budding love interests rather than the real stories at the heart of the plot and the parallels of Snape, Dumbledore, Draco and Harry. Very much a setup movie for the big finalé.
The worst adaptation in the franchise. Not terrible, but the scriptwriters clearly forgot to check that what they had left actually worked once they got it to fit within the timeframe of a movie.
Turns out, this is my favourite. A dark yet relatable plot, with a strangely realistic vision of evil in Umbridge, make for some very interesting social commentary and a much deeper, more personal experience. Harry Potter grows up!
Still the best-directed film of the series, with some truly stunning cinematography and thematic linkages, but the plot feels a little less well put together than I had remembered.
Some stilted moments, but a worthy enough successor that greatly improves the world-building and nicely increases the stakes.
A solid entrance to the franchise which has held up surprisingly well whilst maintaining a genuine sense of mysticism.
A beautiful, clever and refreshing introduction to some of DC's biggest names with thought-through and interesting character development. It's just a shame about the surprise Aquaman!
An enjoyably different war film with a solid and much-needed message, though let down a little by straying from reality in ways that never really add up.
A decent retread of Superman with just enough heart and thought to be entertaining, though at times inconsistent and never novel.
Crazy, stupid, fun. A feel-good film that stands slightly taller than it perhaps should, thanks in large part to a fantastic cast.
Quite possible the best reworking of Holmes put to the small screen and an extremely enjoyable, consistent, and intriguing procedural. Better yet, the seasons of mystery actually get a competent and enthralling conclusion.
An amusing and acceptably surreal entry into the much-loved series. If you (or your kids) are a fan then definitely worth a watch, but this isn't quite an instant classic.
