I think I'd have to say OotP - it could do with being lengthed and not missing so much out. Don't get me wrong, they movie was fantastic, but it did seem rather rushed.
I understand time is always an issue but I'm sure they could have focussed more on certain parts. It wouldn't have hurt to make it that bit longer.

I absoloutley adored PoA so I don't think I'd want them to do much else!
However I didn't much like the ending. It was like 'Hmmm... how should we end it - oh, we'll give Harry the broom from Sirius now and it'll be all lovely'
I prefered the whole broom getting taken away part in the books.
Apart from the ending I just loved it

I think ootp needs more work... and a LOT of it. They left out many things. They couldve just add more to it.And maybe a little bit more in the 4th one too, but I think the 5th one needs to be redone.

Default None of them really deserve that.

I don't think any of the movies deserve to be re-done. It's incredibly hard to make a movie exactly like a book. Some things they have forgotten, or missed out, however, will be seen as big mistakes. An under-rated mistake, I feel, is the cleaning of Grimmauld place, as that's where you first see the locket, and that's how Harry remembers it.

They need to redo PoA that is the worst movie by far to the point where I haven't bought it yet and I doubt I will I just hated that movie with a passion and it was my favorite book!

The movie should have been named Hermione Granger and the Gang! He gave her everyone else's lines and had the better wardrobe and she had the most screentime!

Then scabbers just looked so fake it was like a Fisher Price rat or something. It was just beyond crazy

It was the Quidditch World Cup and we didn't even get a snippit of it!

I agree with you! I hate that movie too because of the portrayal of both Ron and Hermione.
Scabbers didn't worry me too much!

Don't you mean the school Quiddich Cup, which Gryffindor won? The Quiddich World Cup was in GoF.

I would say GOF cause so much of it was rushed and changed and I would rather see a more faithful adaptation to the book.

i say GOF for me it didn't go smoothly like after a scene the screen goes black for a second and then you have a completely different scene, gah hard to explain , also cause alot of things were missing, the Quidditch world cup, i wanted to see the full match , not just the beginning. Winky and dobby in the kitchen , the fireplace at the Dursleys and Molly's envelope XD and i hoped that Crouch would be going all crazy in the forbidden forest. (thinking he's talking to weasley but actually talking to a tree, and then snap back to reality and beg for Dumbledore)

and OoTP too, well i did love the movie! but i thought they could have done a little more, i wanted to see Harry trashing Dumbledore's office , that part was so emotional in the book and in the movie its just
"i know how you feel"
"no you don't"
i wanted to see the Rotation room, Ron getting attacked by a brain , and even tho the Thestral ride was cool, i would have loved to see Ron Hermione and Ginny just floating in the air.

i think PoA should be redone. To me it was a completely horrible movie, and the books so good. The director just ruined it. They left so many things out to me.

OotP could use a little re doing. Just little. I think they left quite a few things out. I mean I can live with no SPEW (no offense Hermione), but there was no qudditch at all in the movie (im not sure because i havent watched the movie in a while).

I though GoF was fine, a few things left out, but no extremely important things. It has to be my favorite movie so far.

I really hope that HBP is better and had no reason to be redone, same with DH, but i do like all the Harry Potter movies (except PoA).

I would say PoA, just for the fact that I really didn't enjoy it too much when I got it home and actually sat down to watch it myself and started to point out all of the flaws.
I agree that the ending was pretty bad. It would have been much, much better to have kept it the same way as how it happened in the book, which I actually enjoyed thoroughly.

Parts of the OoTP should be redone as well. The big 'fight' scene in the Ministry of Magic nearly made me laugh. What kind of villain (*CoughLuciusCough*) Just stands in front of two opponents without doing anything to defend himself as he is being attacked?
Bleh. It didn't have the anxious feeling I got when I was reading the books. And having the DEs and even the Order members 'fly' makes Voldemorts supposedly unsurpassed talent for flying without a broom seem much less impressive now.

GOF i think and OOTP should be made in two parts like what they're going to do with DHallows, they moved way too fast

I acutally agree with you about the two part bit. I'm really hoping at the end of all the movies when they're released to the public on DVD, that they but in a big deleted scene entry. So that we could see all the stuff that got left out because the movie would run too long.

Hmm definately The Sorcerers Stone!! They missed a lot in that one(along with the other four he he).

1) Draco originally meets Harry in Madam Malkins Robe shop....
It would have been interesting to hear Draco's point of view on Hufflepuff and all that... (in the book we know that Draco would leave if he was sorted in Hufflepuff, they don't explain that in the movie)
We also hear his points of views on muggleborns.... (how their kind shouldn't be allowed in Hogwarts because they don't know about our world)

THAT... scene should have not been cut!!!!!!!!!

That is when we start to see the true side of Draco (we do later on in the movies but that scene is priceless)

Weasley in our King!! He always lets the Quaffle in!!!!! Weasely is our king:

I don't think they should re-do any of the movies. I think that if anyone did re-do them it would mostlt ruin the originals. If they where however to re-do any I think they should re-do the first and second. I didn't like how they put the whole thing together in those. But if they where to re-do any I don't think I'd go see it.

I wouldn't redo any of them either. Sure, in the first and second movies the actors aren't quite the best, but its cute. I wouldn't like any new ones.

It is hard to transfer a book to the screen. Order of the Phoenix obviously was going to lose alot. St Mungo's didn't need to be put in obviously but as said above the cleaning of grimmauld place would have been good. The movies don't foreshadow like the books, they just introduce something completely out of the blue and focus on that so you don't say "I remember them mentioning that in the last one".
I agree I was disappointed with the battle in Order of the Pheonix, I understand the whole flying/apparating thing was done to show the confusion of battle but they could have done that with them running. At least when the trio visit the MOM in DH the upper offices will be interesting to see and kept secret.
However if you kept all the scenes in it'd be far too long, Chamber of Secrets was too long and I was kinda disappointed with the chamber at the end. It was creepy but didn't creep me out as much as it did in the book, high temple, impressive and the feeling of being watched.
I don't think theres any one movie that needs to be entirely redone, just bits of each of them need tweaking.

I think OotP should be re-done. There are things which are important for the future movies which they missed. And one more thing I didnt like is, the whold movie is in a bit dull background....i mean its dark. I had to makeout the character who is there by listening to them. The most sad thing Sirius's death is not shown that clearly, i didnt even feel like he was dead by watching the movie, i felt like he just got apparated or disappeared. But while reading the book I felt tears in my eyes.

And the Big fight at the end of the Ootp should be more clear. I can understand one cant do full justice to the story in the book but it can be justified and shouldnot disappoint.

Redoing movies is such a hassle. I would just leave them as they are now.

I think that the movie is missing a lot of important things, but on other side, it is good for entertainment. I think that they should change the director, i think that the main problem is the director. I am a bit disappointing with the beginning of the movie, what the heck? Harry in the coffee shop watching the newspaper and starring at the woman????? what the heck???? This is so offtrack comparing to the original story. I am very disappointing with the director.

I'd really like to see a better PoA, but OOTP was just so awful I think that one. (Not that they's remake any of them anyway....)

It has to be PoA, they might as well have not read the book. I was especially disappointed when they missed out everything about Harry’s dad and made it sound like Lupin was Lilly’s best friend not James. They didn’t explain Harry’s patronus at all or why they became animagus.

I think Order of the Phoenix because it ends sort of abruptly, and it seems shorter than the other ones.
