Three sentence movie reviews: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
This movie is a textbook example of why it is not a good idea to do a scene-by-scene recreation of a work of literature.* Everything moved very, very slowly. Still, it was fun to see a very young Rupert, Emma & Daniel and the quiddich scene was great.

*Interestingly, I saw this when it came out and enjoyed that aspect of it. Not so this time.
I love that you are reviewing (I need to start my rereading). Funny how time, knowledge of the ending, other movies with different directors can change the view of the 1st. Though, I'm not sure the book fans would have let them film it any other way, now the movies are their own entity, in many ways!
