Total Film Lists the 50 Greatest Harry Potter Scenes


Feb 03, 2012

Posted by John Admin

With eight films over a span of 10 years, it must’ve been pretty difficult for Total Film to come up with this list of the 50 Greatest Harry Potter Scenes. But they managed to do it, describing the scene and explaining why it’s one of their top picks. From Snape’s “Page 394″ scene to Harry and Ron’s trip in the flying Ford Anglia, there’s a little bit of everything.

Check out the complete list here to find out what snagged the number one spot, and then let us know in the comments if you agree or disagree with anything!

Avatar Imagehorcruxhunter7 says: Wow! They chose really good scenes!Avatar Imagekyrstalkris says: Brilliant! Off to view a list that I thought was impossible on making!Avatar Imagesilverkacy says: I think they should've had Ron's love potion scene. Avatar ImageMissWeasley8 says: LOL! I loved "Pucker Up"Avatar Imagezaucwrkexun says: They chose some great scenes! :DAvatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: A rather more grown-up list than the one done for ITV, and it includes quite a few of my favourites (though not Snape saying 'ob-viously' or the first Occlumency scene, both from OotP). But I always enjoy the witty comments of George Wales of Total Film.Avatar Imagelovelle says: haven't seen it yet, but i know this will be EPIC!Avatar Imagerootbably says: LOVE the Neville And Nagini scene, and the Mischief Managed! All of the scenes that they chose were absolutly wonderful. Avatar Imagemoglet says: I really like the scenes that they have chosen, much better than the list that ITV came up with.Avatar ImageHermioneLunaHP says: They chose some great scenes! I like the second one : You're a WizardAvatar ImageChrissyT says: I LOVED the fight between Dumbledore and Voldemort in the Ootp movie!!! Totally agree with that one, and the "Mischief Managed" one too. :DAvatar ImageChrissyT says: Should Lupin be defined as an Animagi though? (Scene 37)Avatar ImageStephaniie says: epic coolness. though some of my favourite scenes weren't included OH well.Avatar Imageforgetmenot_007 says: They've done a great job! There are just too many of our favourite scenes to be included in top 50 ( a top 1000 list would have been a little better,I guess :p ), they've included some amazing scenes! :DAvatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: @ChrissyT. You're right, Lupin isn't really an Animagus. George Wales clearly knows his Potter stuff pretty well, but he's a film critic, not a fanatic like us on Leaky!Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: CoolAvatar Imagebigharrypotterfan says: amazing scenes :)Avatar Imagebigharrypotterfan says: My favourite is neville and nagini :)Avatar Imagelilyluna257 says: seen them all, though i thought some shouldn't be up thereAvatar ImageA Friendly Slytherin says: 39. Dawlish's Expression Avatar ImageA Friendly Slytherin says: The statues seen deserves to be mentioned :)Avatar Imagehewy says: All great scenes and for me it would be hard to pick one let alone 50 but do not agree with the #1 pick it should have been Dobby's death scene.Avatar ImageA Friendly Slytherin says: 4. The one that made me terrified of Harry Potter for all my childhoodAvatar ImageLunaLoonyLovegood says: I agree with all of the clips they picked! :) They were all so good! I especially agreed with their #1 pick...Dumbledore's Departure... such a sad but good part of the movie... I cried :*( But they did a great job :)Avatar says: I loved it so much! But I still think The resurrection stone should've been in the top 5!Avatar says: WHERE THE HELL WAS THE END OF THE EPILOGUE AT?Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Might read it later :)Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Nicely done that...
