British actor Ralph Fiennes has made it clear he isn't a fan of the first two Harry Potter films, despite his role in the next instalment of the magical series.

Fiennes plays LORD VOLDEMORT in the upcoming fourth movie, HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE, yet has no love for HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER'S STONE and HARRY POTTER AND THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS.

He tells website EmpireOnline.co.uk, "I think the first two films were a little too saccharine and glib, even for Harry Potter fans."
