    Default Which HARRY POTTER film has the most acclaimed score?

    The only one of the Harry Potter movies I've ever seen is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire -- for which I own the soundtrack. The score, by Patrick Doyle, is enthralling (and influenced pretty heavily, I think, by Wagner and Verdi). For those of you who know more than I do about the Potter films, I have two questions: 1.) Which film's score is generally considered, by critics, etc., to be "the best" one, and 2.) Which Potter score is your own personal favorite?

    It's a good and funny question, and I wish I could answer it better! I've seen all the films, and I remember which ones I liked, so if I make the (rather ludicrous) assumption that my order of preference also reflects the quality of the film score, I can give you this:

    1. HP & the Prisoner of Azkaban (a rather good film!)
    2. HP & the Chamber of Secrets (quite funny!)
    3. HP & the Philosopher's Stone AND HP & the Goblet of Fire (both at least decent)

    and then all the rest, which I remember thinking were all equally crap, and at least partially so because of the original text by Rowling.
    Wäre das Faktum wahr, – wäre der außerordentliche Fall wirklich eingetreten, daß die politische Gesetzgebung der Vernunft übertragen, der Mensch als Selbstzweck respektiert und behandelt, das Gesetz auf den Thron erhoben, und wahre Freiheit zur Grundlage des Staatsgebäudes gemacht worden, so wollte ich auf ewig von den Musen Abschied nehmen, und dem herrlichsten aller Kunstwerke, der Monarchie der Vernunft, alle meine Thätigkeit widmen.
