Best Harry Potter Movie Moments

The best Harry Potter moments from all eight Harry Potter films. Not all of these moments are bad, some are sad, some are action-packed, some are happy, some are funny.
The Top Ten
1 Severus and Lily - Deathly Hallows, Part 2

Wouldn't give it first place but defiantly a good part in the stories. Where Harry finally realises that Snape was trying to protect him the entire time and wasn't evil.

Best moment.
My order:

1. Severus and lily
2. The order vs death eaters
3. Battle at hogwarts
4. Dumbledore vs Voldemort
5. Finding the sorcerer stone
6. Astronomy tower
7. Harry rescues Sirius

Very Emotional moment. Snape was really the best character in the series. Harry comes to know that the man he hated wasn't bad after all...

When you find out snape is the true hero of the story besides he is still all gray,complex and so misunderstood and had a interesting story even better than Harry Potter...

2 Battle of Hogwarts - Deathly Hallows, Part 2

! Definitely! Thewhole atmoshpere of it and the slow motion bits and the music tops it off! Actually when Harry and Ginny kiss on the stairs...

And then the house elves and centaurs attacked and I jumped off my chair and yelled YEAH! (Books by the way)

The best part of all movies! So much emotion and love, death and action!

When Neville chops off the snakes head.. Best part in all the movies.

3 Priori Incantatem (Harry vs. Voldemort) - Goblet of Fire

The entire Goblet of Fire movie should be here! The book is my favorite one, and the movie is probably in my top 5! It had lots of action, adventure, mystery, drama, and romance, not to mention humor in the books (though not too much, seeing as though Harry Potter is meant to be serious). Plus, we get a lot more Sirius, someone from Twilight sort of dies, Draco gets turned into a ferret (I like ferrets, though), we get introduced to different wizarding schools, expanding our knowledge of the wizarding world, and THERE ARE DRAGONS! DRAGONS! WHO DOESN'T LOVE DRAGONS?

The part near the ending of Goblet of Fire where Harry and Voldemort fight.

Yes it was one of the best parts of the movie.

4 Death Eaters vs. The Order - Order of the Phoenix

The fight scene where the death eaters battle the Order of the Phoenix.

5 Harry Rescues Sirius - Prisoner of Azkaban

One of the, if not the only moment we get in the movies where Harry performs an astounding, staggering feat of magic. The only other contenders I can think of is his fights with Voldemort. Seeing Harry drive off dozens of dementors is a feat similar to the spells thrown between Dumbledore and Voldemort during their fight. I particularly love the moment where the camera is facing Harry's back, and we see Hermoine just watching pure light comes cascading off Harry's wand, to the point where it envelops his silhouette.

I love this scene, as well as when Sirius first reveals himself in the Shrieking Shack and everyone realizes he is an Animagus. Sirius is my favorite character in the series.

This is pretty much my favorite part in the whole entire series!

The sequence where Harry and Hermione go back in time and Harry casts an "Expecto Patronum" spell.

6 Dumbledore vs. Voldemort - Order of the Phoenix

The part where Dumbledore and Voldemort fight each other.

This was so cool

7 Astronomy Tower (Dumbledore's Farewell) - Half-Blood Prince

It wasn't that dramatic. Besides, it was all planned.

The sad, but deeply moving death of Dumbledore.

I think this the saddest moment ever this should be number 1 we can't live without dumbledore

8 Finding The Sorcerer's Stone - Sorcerer's Stone

When Harry Potter goes through a series of rooms and chambers to finally find the sorcerer's stone.

9 Fred and George Go Out With a Bang - Order of the Phoenix

I think this is the best scene because it really shows how mischevous they are and I like how they get back at Umbridge and they set that fire work dragon on her. I think this is an amazing scene

GIVE HER HELL FOR US PEEVES! In the darkest book. Right before one of the hardest deaths. Feed and George get to gone the worst villain in the series a huge middle finger and deputize PEEVES. That whole sequence is the most uplifting scene in the books except for maybe the end of chamber of secrets.

My favorite scene

Best scene ever!

10 Neville's Epic Speech - Deathly Hallows, Part 2

I love Neville! This is so amazing when he gave this speak, and in front of Voldemort and his army if death eaters! He is brave and loyal to Harry, I would most definitely be proud to have him as my friend!

Very good music

The Contenders
11 Voldemort Gets The Elder Wand - Deathly Hallows, Part 1

At the very ending, when Voldemort breaks into Dumbledore's grave to retrieve the elder wand.

12 Hermione Punches Draco - Prisoner of Azkaban

I really hate how people pair Draco and Hermione canonically ( I don't mind fanfics) but this is absolute CANON evidence that there's no way she's marry that loathsome evil ferrety cockroach!

Come on, this should be number 1! I mean, Draco was being such a jerk and Hermione's all like, you know what, if I smack you now I can get 3 years worth of revenge. Since I read that at age 8 she has been like a role model to me.

This should be number 2 cause this was the best scene ever some girl power.

"You foul loathensome evil little cockroach! " -Hermione, year 3 (best line of the series in my opinion)

13 Not My Daughter You Bitch - Deathly Hallows, Part 2

This is a touching scene! I love Molly Weasley! This is the greatest moment ever!

This is the best scene it's shows that Molly Weasley some Bad Sass she is.

Totally badass, and shows how Molly Weasley's maternal instincts and love for her family has always been incredibly strong

Always been the most badass moment in my eyes. Very touching too

14 O'Children - Deathly Hallows, Part 1

Hermione really needed Harry in that scene. I mean, her crush (and BEST FRIEND, also) just left her! So Harry proved to be a true friend and danced with her. Some people are shrieking, "SHIP SHIP SHIP! " naming their children, and claiming they're destined to be a couple. But what about friendship? That's a pretty strong bond as well. They don't need to be a couple to comfort each other, and to need each other.

I really hate how people perceive this scene as a romantic could have been moment to ship Harry and Hermione together...I mean
COME ON Hermione's heart already with Ron
The way I see this scene is an emotionally well put scene of two siblings comforting each other
It was a display of PLATONIC love people!

They just share a dance without words. That is one of the most special aspects of the harry/hermione friendship. They can understand each other without words.

Strong moment of friendship, perhaps the best of all the movie series. The music and the emotions blow away all the trouble they're into.

15 The Flying Car - Chamber of Secrets

The sequence with the flying car to reach Hogwarts when Harry and Ron are not on the train.

The basilisk scene should be way above this.

16 Harry frees Dobby - Chamber of Secrets

One of the most heartfelt scenes in Chamber of Secrets. Dobby is a free elf!

This should totally be higher. Dobby for the win!

I love this scene. It's so heartwarming!

This was adorable. "Dobby is free!"

17 Harry, Ron, and Hermione See Their Children Off to Hogwarts - Deathly Hallows, Part 2

I can't believe this is only nineteen.

When I was nine my mum made me read Philosopher's Stone. After the few chapters I had developed a strong bond with Harry and I loved it from that day on. I ruched to the second book then all of the others. I couldn't imagine my life without it. J.K. Rowling raised me in a world of muggles and in a magical own way too. I could never thank her enough. Then characters started dying. But Luna and Neville were my best friends no one liked me the thought I was weird and Luna by my side we worked things out. I loved Neville ever since the first book. They were only there for me. Harry Potter gave me friends. And life lessons. I can't decide my love for H.P. in words I'm sorry. It's just my life I cried for an owl. It gave me a strong bond with my teacher. At school I read Hedwig's death scenes and I was uncontrollably crying. Then my teacher came and started to cry too. People thought we were idiots crying over an owl but everything is real if ...more

Although some might find this scene lame and cheesy, as well as disliking JK Rowling's chosen pairings (Ron x Hermione, Harry x Ginny, Neville x Hannah), I found this scene adorable and heart-warming! Sure, it may seem odd that the secondary hero ends up with the heroine and the hero ends up with heroine (? ), but it's their choices. You can't control their lives. Let them choose love for themselves. It's also great that we were introduced to their children, and got a glimpse of what they're like and whom they became friends with. In the book, it's also quite humorous (with Ron 'faking' his fame). The only thing I didn't like about it (in the books and movies) was that it was a reminder that Harry Potter is over. No more books. No more movies. They basically told me my life ended. But I survived. Besides, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is coming out soon. Either way, I've always loved Harry Potter...


No no no. 1# has to be! Come on lily and Snape wasn't even that good compared to this!

The scar had not pained Harry for 19 years. All was well. I busted into tears at this.

This is me whenever some one asked me a question:

When did your childhood end?
All was well
What was the most important moment in life?
All was well
What made you cry so much?
All was well

Really? Only in #19? This is the best scene ever!

18 Umbridge Pisses Off Snape - Order of Phoenix

I loved this part

19 Buckbeak's Flight - Prisoner of Azkaban

In my opinion this is one of the best scene in the movie. To me it was a reminder of how amazing the wizarding world actually is and come on, who hasnt dreamed of riding a hippogriff as a child!

In the book theirs not too much about it... But in the movie this scene is literally breathtaking! So beautiful picturisation and combined with memorable music... I just love this scene

I agree. This scene gives me goosebumps!

20 Voldemort's Eh Heh Heh Laugh - Deathly Hallows, Part 2
21 Draco Turns Into a Ferret - Goblet of Fire

This was so funny

22 Dumbledore's Got Style - Order of the Phoenix

You just can't deny it

23 You're a Wizard - Sorcerer's Stone
24 Ron and Hermoine Kiss - Deathly Hallows, Part 2

She and he became such good friends that they all lived happily ever after and this is just one example of how Hermione,Harry potter, and Ron were great friends in the end.

This is such a cute moment!

25 Everyone Applauds Hagrid - Chamber of Secrets

Why the hell is this not on the list? It was one of the most touching moments in the franchise (THE most touching in my opinion), always cry when I watch it!

One of the best scenes in Harry Potter history. It's so sweet and heartwarming, I am on the verge of tears whenever I see it.
