A Grown Up’s Guide to the Magical World of ‘Harry Potter’ Story

Here at Your Money Geek, we love to help you find the perfect movie to watch, whether it's a popcorn flick or a horror film like Midsommar

But sometimes you want to go back to something you once loved—or maybe even revisit a franchise you never quite completed. Our  Grown  Up's Guides are designed to help you get reacquainted with some of the most popular franchises in the world.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Talk about an absolutely horrible movie. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is not only bad because it is poorly written but the movie itself contradicts Harry Potter and its own lore so many times that it just makes the movie nearly unwatchable. 

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

The thing about Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is that it tried to tackle a 607-page book in the span of one film that is only two and a half hours long.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secret

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets isn’t bad, it just is the weakest book out of the series and doesn’t make for an exciting movie. Harry finds himself in a world of intrigue when a snake that lives in the walls of Hogwarts starts targeting muggleborn students.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Yet again, the problem with Goblet of Fire is just that you’re taking a book that is 600+ pages long and turning it into one movie. The introduction of Cedric Diggory (played by Robert Pattinson) is one that has never really left fans of both the Harry Potter series and Robert Pattinson but it is a pretty good adaptation even though Dumbledore “calmly” asked Harry if he put his name in the Goblet of Fire in the books.
