Welcome to Hogwarts (Sorcerer's Stone)

The look of wonder that blossoms over Harry's face when he initially sees Hogwarts was echoed on the face of every other "Potter" fan sitting in the theater when they saw "Sorcerer's Stone" for the first time, and that pivotal scene remains iconic even a decade after its release. Hogwarts is as much a character in the "Harry Potter" series as Harry, Voldemort and Snape, but it is more than that as well. Image courtesy: movies.ign.com

The Sorting Hat (Sorcerer’s Stone)

It is one of the favourite scene in both the books and the movies. Little Harry is put up in front of his peers for the first of time and forced to deal with realizing that he is indeed crazy famous and face one of the most important dilemmas of his young life: Gryffindor or Slytherin?

The Marauders' Revenge (Prisoner of Azkaban)

A lot of action and revelation is packed into a relatively small space during the Shrieking Shack scene in “Prisoner of Azkaban.” Suddenly, we learn that Sirius Black is friend not foe, Ron’s beloved Scabbers the rat is really Peter Pettigrew, and Harry has the quaffles to attack Snape.

The Quidditch World Cup (Goblet of Fire)

Quidditch - the made-up wizarding sport provided us with so many great moments, but the best is the Quidditch World Cup scene in "Goblet of Fire." The match between Ireland and Bulgaria was epic but it also set the stage for the Death Eaters' grand arrival. Image courtesy: http://2.bp.blogspot.com

Voldemort Reborn (Goblet of Fire)

The resurrection of Lord Voldemort in "Goblet of Fire" marks a turning point for the "Harry Potter" movies. The whole climactic scene at the end of the fourth "Potter" movie - from Cedric being killed to Harry's close escape - are some of the most engaging minutes of cinema the "Harry Potter" franchise has produced. Plus, it marked the introduction of Ralph Fiennes to the series as the brilliant and terrifying as Lord Voldemort. Image courtesy: of-the8thcamp.tumblr.com

Expecto Patronum (Order of the Phoenix)

One of the best aspects of the later "Potter" movies is the special dynamic created by the creation of Dumbledore's Army. The wonderful montage sequence in "Order of the Phoenix" when Harry transforms from student to teacher, instructing his peers on how they should defend themselves from dark magic now that Voldemort has returned to the world and how to cast a Patronus charm is particularly touching.

Dumbledore Vs. Voldemort (Order of the Phoenix)

Two of the all-time greatest wizards went wand-to-wand in the Ministry of Magic. It's a masterful display of power both within the confines of the "Potter" story and for the fans watching at home, and just goes to show why Tom Riddle was so scared of the Hogwarts headmaster that he had to send an assassin to do his dirty work in "Half-Blood Prince."

Bellatrix Lestrange’s Sing-Song Crazy (“Half-Blood Prince”)

Each and every scene of Bellatrix Lestrange is in is gripping and/or terrifying, oftentimes both. It is tough to pick one scene because she is so good in all of them. Image courtesy: bellatricks.blogspot.com

Tale of the Three Brothers (Deathly Hallows Part 1)

The Tale of the Three Brothers is a very significant moment in "Deathly Hallows: Part 1. The animated shadow-play sequence that is used to tell the story of the Peverell brothers was beautiful, and arguably the story was visually better than how J.K. Rowling wrote it in the book.

Dobby Is Free! (Chamber of Secrets)

This scene is brilliant for many reasons! The way Jason Isaacs plays Lucius’ barely controlled rage is simply sublime and Harry’s brilliant double-crossing/hidden ball trick maneuver for the win when actually it’s a hidden sock in a book. And finally for sweet, simple, loyal Dobby. Image courtesy: the-lonely-sock.blogspot.com
