Along the way Harry Potter makes friends with Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger although with the latter it is a slow burning friendship rather than one that is natural from the outset. Another of the interesting things about this movie is how well it holds up so many years later. The acting is on point and the effects are still really good and convincing. It's a testament to how well it was done at the time that it really is such a good watch all these years, and films, later.
