    How have the directors influenced the films?

    For all the countless ways that J.K. Rowling’s evocative writing has determined the look and tone of the “Harry Potter’’ films, the directors who’ve adapted the books -- Chris Columbus, Alfonso Cuarón, Mike Newell, and David Yates -- have certainly also significantly influenced the screen franchise’s development. 

    Which director do you think did the best job?  Who took the most liberties?  Join the conversation below.

    Silly question.

    Unless one mentions the fact that Steve Kloves had a hand in scripting all of the films...

    ...the directors are exactly why people see these films, right?

    Whoever made the decision to split the 7th Harry Potter book into two films deserves credit for realizing that they had too much content to appreciably capture in a 2-2.5 hour movie (as long as a family with younger kids can sit and pay attention, unlike Lord of the Rings, which for us fans who are largely a bit older has no time limits, as evidenced by how I've watched the extended edition DVDs in one day... three times now [shame/geekpride] )

    I hate whoever did the 5th (order of the phoenix) and 6th (half blood prince) movies because they were absurdly rushed (as was the 4th, goblet of fire) while failing to capitalize on a lot of what made the books likable

    Whoever did the 3rd movie did a great job capturing the Sirius Black story, although credit largely goes to J.K. Rowling for creating that story line.
