When you can
get a movie to seem just like a book, it's got to be good.
With the special effects today, in Harry Potter and the
Sorcerer’s Stone’s case, they could do just this. I was
flat out amazed at this film; it was like watching a new
version of sci-fi masterpieces like
Star Wars and
E.T.: the Extra Terrestrial.
This feature most definitely deserved the one billion dollars
it made world wide. Mr. Potter and his movie deserves a strong
position on my “2001” top ten list. The two and a half hours
went by so fast, and when it was done I wanted more!
The thing that amazed me was how they got the characters
to look just like Rowling envisioned them. For god's sake,
Daniel Radcliffe looks just like the Harry Potter on the cover
of the book! Everyone was just perfect in the film, It
should've won best costume design at the Academy Awards; it
fully deserved it.
This kind of fantasy makes you imagine, and I love it
when a movie makes you utilize your brain. It seems to inspire
you to create and envision things out of the ordinary. The
books as well as the movie required incredible imagination.
The baby dragon with its beady little eyes, almost makes you
feel like you love it, but then you quickly remember that it's
a fire spitting beast! The gigantic monster in the bathroom
was a special treat. People don't respect imagination or
special effects today yet they play such a big role to the
show that movie puts on.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone was an
extraordinary film. I loved everything about it, and when I
give a movie four stars, it fully deserves them. I give
endless compliments to the cast, the crew, and all of the work
that made it a special delight. In conclusion, Harry Potter
and the Sorcerers Stone was a whimsical enchantment for
all ages. It is available everywhere on video and DVD.
