Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - 5

This is the second film in the series and second and last for director Chris Columbus. This film has an easier time of it as it only needs one school year to tell the story and further develop the growing battle between Harry and Voldemort. Harry's friendship with Ron and Hermione is also strengthened, and the widening divide with the Malfoy's. It is also interesting that Snape takes on a lesser role in the story. The plot revolves around the legend of the Chamber of Secrets and the history of Hagrid and Tom Riddle from 50 years before. Magic, intuitive insight, and maybe some help from higher powers make Harry victorious again over a huge snake.
