This is such a great series, I have watched each movie more times then I can count but I would say that the first 3 are most def my favorite. But I do love then all. My only regret I'd that I didn't get into them earlier, that way I could have watched the first five movies in the theater, maybe they will re-release these into the theater like they did Star Wars. That would be pretty cool. These movies are also my go to comfort movies, if I'm bored, sick, our just have nothing else to watch. Instant classic.

This is a great adaptation of jkrowlings timeless children's book. This movie captures all of the magic of the book on screen very well. The casting choices were especially very strong.some things that hold me back from giving this movie 5 stars is just that the child actors are not at their full potential simply because of their age ( given this I still think they were great) The only other thing is that the cgi is a little bit clunky and outdated. But overall this was a very fun adventure.
