151. November 14/15, 2010 - Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)

There's a moment in this movie toward the very end when Harry returns to the Hogwarts grounds with Cedric's body. People try to tear him away, but he holds onto his friend. For me, that's the moment in the series when the entire tone changes. Harry has to accept it that he let Cedric die and he has to let go, but he can't. And the audience knows that even worse things are coming. Plus, it's very moving and sad to see the ceiling of the Great Hall not bewitched during the memorial at the end. I think this is one of the best of the series (other than the bad hair), despite the fact that this is one of my less favorite books.

Here are my original thoughts.
