"Only I can live... forever."
Outtake from my review:
2577 7.6 7.62. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010)
"Together, they make the Deathly Hallows. Together, they make one master of death."
A Potter movie for the fans. Seeing as I'm a huge fan of the books, this really was the Potter movie I've been waiting for. And it shows that the split was really needed. It's beautifully slow-paced, and it really catches the atmosphere of the book. It's dark and gritty. It's sad, and visually stunning. The action sequences are breathtaking and the cast have really grown in their roles. There are several emotional moments that is completely devastating, and which breaks my heart every time.

"Our pain becomes their power."
While I do love what David Yates accomplished to do with his last two Harry Potter films, I would have been intrigued to see that Alfonso Cuarón would have managed to do with even darker Harry Potter material. Because he goes in a whole different direction than any of the other Harry Potter directors, and creates an atmospheric and visually beautiful, magical universe.

"You're a fool, Harry Potter, and you will lose everything."
It is pretty much just as good as Goblet of Fire. I do however think it is a bigger feat, seeing as they took the longest book and descended it into one of the shortest films in the franchise. Which I am totally okay with, surprisingly enough. There are really not that many important moments let out, all though I do, perhaps, wish they would have showed more of the order.

"Soon we must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy."
While it does introduce us to some of the romance in the franchise, things are really starting to get dark in this film. Which has to do with that they did mostly leave out all of the more lighter things from the book, mainly focusing on getting the main story right. Which is fine. Things get darker from this point and it was a wise choice to focus on that.
5500 7.1 7.36. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001)
"It does not do to dwell on dreams, Harry, and forget to live."
And so it begins. It is not one of the better films in this beloved franchise, but it is still, perhaps, one of the most loved ones. Simply because it is the beginning. It is the start of the Harry Potter franchise. The beginning of a generation that would last a decade. Like the newer films, it is a fun, fast-paced fantasy adventure with a wonderful cast that entertains in every possible way.
3221 7.1 7.47. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)
"Did I know that I just met the most dangerous dark wizard of all time? No."
It is my favorite out of the books. Which is why it is a bit sad that I think it is one of the weaker films. It is great in many ways, though. It's very funny, nearly every scene with Jim Broadbent's scene-stealing Horace Slughorn is hilarious. There are some teenager moments that are great, and the finale is touching and strong.
5231 6.9 7.28. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)
"It is not our abilities that show what we truly are. It is our choices."
It doesn't necessarily feels as outdated as the Philosopher's Stone could do occasionally, but I do honestly still think this is the weakest entry in the franchise. Which is a bit surprising actually, seeing as I do like book a lot more, because of it's much darker turn.
