Harry Potter’s Netflix streak has been ruined by these movies

The Harry Potter movies were taking over Netflix for a while there, but a few choice films have now started putting an end to the boy who lived's lease on life.

The boy who lived, Harry Potter made his way onto Netflix recently. So if you want to watch all the Harry Potter movies in order you’re in luck and fans were quick to jump on the Hogwarts Express. All eight of the mainline fantasy movies took up the top ten chart on Netflix UK – until recently, anyway.

A pair of horror movies, and a blockbuster action movie, have squeezed their onto the list, pushing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 out. Sadly, the house cup of number one now belongs to Fast and Furious movie F9, rather than any of the entries in the seven-year long saga to defeat Voldemort.

Old, from M Night Shyamalan, and slasher Don’t Breathe 2 are the other Hogwarts invaders. Alas, not even Dumbledore could protect against having a good scare.

The other seven films still look unshakeable, especially the first two, easily the most nostalgic of the lot. Neither of the Fantastic Beasts movies got a chance in the limelight, making it clear subscribers have some taste when it comes to adventure movies.
