The “Harry Potter” Films Make Great Sequels

Two of the Harry Potter films have made Empire‘s “50 Greatest Ever Movies Sequels.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix made it to the 15th spot while Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban made it to the 24th spot!

Here’s what they had to say about Order of the Phoenix:

Why’s it so good? David Yates took over the directing reins for this fifth film, based on the longest – and some would say, dullest – book in the series and knocked it out of the park. Excising large swathes of not much, he cut it down to one of the leanest films and delivered a barnstorming last act in the Ministry of Magic, with the sort of magical duels we’d been waiting four-and-a-half films to see.
