When deciding to put together a list of great films, there was much to decide. First, do I want to choose only modern films, or movies throughout history? Do I want to use films that I choose, and only take into account my own opinion, or do I survey others? Probably the biggest question is, do I select only specific genres for the movies, or do I use films from all genres? I admit it was a daunting task with a lot of questions to answer before I even got started. In the end, this is what I chose to do. I would select one film for every main genre. I also decided that I would not choose the films. Even with my vast movie watching experience, I did not feel qualified to choose the best films for everyone, so I researched almost twenty movie sites on the Internet that have the capability to sort films by genre — then once sorted, could be ordered by the most popular films of that moment. In other words, don’t blame me if you don’t agree with the choices, they are based on the average of each site’s number one choice for every genre listed, and the sites get their data from your visits, so it is you, not me, who made these choices. Cheerio!

I have to say that I very much agree with the public on this one. I am a huge fan of the HP books, and the films, in my opinion, did an excellent job reproducing them. Of course, in this installment, Harry, Ron and Hermione attempt to find Voldemort’s remaining Horcruxes. The search finally takes them back to Hogwarts where the Dark Lord and his army soon arrive and lay siege. During the great battle, they attempt to destroy the final Horcruxes and defeat the Voldemort for good.
