The Harry Potter movies are enjoyed by millions of people all over the world. Many fans rewatch them once in a while, and some even have certain traditions with them — like rewatching the entire saga on Christmas, for example.

But, while most of the films are generally adored, some of them invoke major disappointment in the community.

Let's talk about three least favorite movies from the franchise — and uncover the reasons why Harry Potter fans don't like them!

Goblet of Fire

According to fans, this movie was completely butchered by its director, Mike Newell, who never bothered to read the books.

He even admitted that he based his Hogwarts on his own boarding school. The entire movie feels incredibly rushed and it misses so many crucial scenes it's just embarrassing.

You get the World Cup, then you blink — and there's already the Triwizard Tournament unfolding. You get no Dobby and Winky, no half-giant drama… It's just flashy — take it or leave it.

Half-Blood Prince

For the most part, the plot in the movie doesn't go anywhere.

Pretty much all you get is a high-school relationship drama, and they still somehow failed to show the Tonks-Lupin and Bill-Fleur stories (OK, we see Tonks and Lupin together, but with no backstory or explanation).

Other than that, we don't get to see most of Voldemort's backstory from the books or even the Half-Blood Prince mystery…

While the latter is literally in this part's name, and the former is the most crucial information for the later story!

Deathly Hallows, Part 1

Talking about the first part of The Deathly Hallows, there's immediately a question: what's even the point of it existing? The vast majority of the first film is just three fellow schoolmates camping in the woods.

It's the same in the book, mind you, but since it's a film, the priorities were set in a really weird fashion.

The split between the two parts was also strange: while Voldemort grabbing the wand and casting a massive spell into the dark sky is definitely a cool shot, this was not the Big Moment of the story.

The first part should've happened after Harry makes the decision to forget about the Hallows and pursue Horcruxes instead.

This is the meaningful bit: it sets Harry apart from Voldemort — and it would've teased the next part perfectly.
