The selection of your house at Hogwarts Legacy is based on a series of values that you must adhere to. It is not an exact science. You may be more akin to one house and end up in another because of certain special traits or your own choice. The Sorting Hat is not usually wrong. His decision always has a reason, even if the reason is not always clear in the short term.
At VidaExtra it has occurred to us: what kind of movies and series do you like and/or should you watch depending on the house you are in? Like I told you, this is not an exact science. I hope you enjoy the recommendations!
Slytherin house values the determination, cunning, ambition and resourcefulness when it comes to achieving your goals above all else. In addition, they tend to love very intensely, despite not being reciprocated in most cases.
The interesting thing about Slytherin is that it shares many virtues and defects with Gryffindor, so much so that many wizards and witches could belong to both houses. The case of Harry Potter is the clearest: he was a Slytherin, but he chose Gryffindor. Both profiles show courage, determination and leadership skills. The difference is that Gryffindors are more passionate and Slytherins tend to be more calculating.
Slytherin house is hit by movies and series of mobsters and the like, stories that tell the ambitions of an individual or groups. Drama, suspense, betrayals and much more.
Films: Casino, Goodfellas, The Irishman, Scarface, The Godfather, The Departed, Road to Perdition, Pulp Fiction, The Wolf of Wall Street and more.
Series: Suits (The key to success), The Blacklist, Mad Men, The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Narcos, Sons of Anarchy, Peacky Blinders, Carnival Row, Game of Thrones, The House of Dragon, The Boys and more.
War movies/series like All Quiet on the Front and others more focused on drama (but with a certain mystery) like The Great Gatsby are also popular. On the other hand, due to the darkness associated with the house, I would add horror movies/series, other action movies like John Wick, sagas like Star Wars, and vigilantes like The Punisher, Daredevil, Batman, Loki, and Doctor Strange.
Gryffindor house values above all else courage, daring, mettle and chivalry. His bravery often borders on recklessness. However, history has shown that courage is not everything and that not all its members comply with the aforementioned values. In addition, the house has a strong rivalry with Slytherin dating back to its founders.
Proud Gryffindors often indulge in arrogance, meanness, and treachery more times than they care to admit. Some are easily corruptible due to intensity of your emotions.
Gryffindor house is hit by movies/series action, adventure and war, especially focused on knights, heroes and even anti-heroes. Action, epicity and iconic characters.
Films: Kingdom of Heaven, King Arthur: The Legend of Excalibur, Robin Hood (Russell Crowe), Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Man of Steel, Captain America, Star Wars, Braveheart, Thor, 1917, Invincible, Harry Potter and more.
Series: The Rings of Power, The Last of Us, The Witcher, Vikings, The Mandalorian, Blood Brothers, The Pacific and more.
Gryffindors are into anything heroic…even if it gets a little dark. The movies/series DC, Marvel and other heroes, and the war genre are usually the most suitable for members of this house. You can also include everything that implies face light and darkgood and bad, since most stories are told from the perspective of good.
Hufflepuff house values the friendship, honesty, patience and hard work above all. The beauty of this house is that its members tend to be very friendly people, without prejudices and that they tend to reuse the unnecessary competitiveness that Gryffindor and Slytherin show.
The Sorting Hat notes: “Dear Hufflepuff, she took the others and taught them everything she knew.” Helga Hufflepuff had no objection to accepting any student, because he trusted that everyone could give their best and stand out in something. They show their value with daily effort, treating everyone without prejudice and appreciating the little things.
Knowing this, the Hufflepuff house is hit with movies of adventure, magic, comedy and heroism. New worlds, mysteries to solve, friends to protect and simple people proving their worth through effort.
Films: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Harry Potter, Uncharted: The Movie, Tomb Raider, Dolittle, Indiana Jones, The Hobbit, Jurassic Park, Free Guy, Ready Player One, Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man: A New Universe, The Treasure Planet, Sea Monster, How to Train Your Dragon, Ray and the Last Dragon and more.
Series: Naruto, Guardians of the Night, Adventure Time, Vikings, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Friends and more.
Hufflepuffs have a special relationship with friendship. Movies like The Kominsky Method and Now or Never (The Bucket List), along with all the proposals mentioned, are ideal for this house. Disney animated productions also fit very well because they usually have friendship as an important value.
The House of Ravenclaw values wisdom, wit, and learning above all else. No wonder this house has especially talented students in many areas of magic. The students who stand out the most are usually eccentric intellectuals, somewhat unusual within the values. Their logical, rational and curious nature tends to distract them from reality, hindering their social skills and making them innocent in many cases.
One thing is for sure: Ravenclaws are curious people and very hungry for knowledge. The ideal movies/series for this house are from adventures and detectives, especially those who seek hidden or lost knowledge. You cannot miss the eccentric protagonists and the philosophical touches.
Films: Indiana Jones, Interstellar, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Tomb Raider, Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.), A Beautiful Mind, Solving the Enigma, The Martian, Good Will Hunting, The Oxford Murders, The King’s Speech, The Dead Poets Club, Invictus, Star Wars and more.
Series: Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch), Black Mirror, Love Death + Robots, Perdidos, Los 100, MindHunter, True Detective, Mr. Robot, Hannibal, Fringe, The Expanse y más.
The movies/series space exploration They are usually ideal to stimulate the imagination and knowledge of the Ravenclaws. Both Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff, especially the former, could add the documentaries about nature and science to your list: Cosmos, Our Planet, Fantastic Fungi, Hostile Planet, Kingdom of the White Wolf and more.
Remember that these are some recommendations and that you do not have to agree with the tastes of the box you choose. I have already told you before that belonging to a house does not imply strictly following its values. Keeping this in mind: what other recommendations do you propose? What is your house? What movie/series do you feel identified with according to your house? I read you in comments!
