It’s been a minute since I’ve watched the Harry Potter films and I decided I’m going to do a full rewatch starting with The Philosopher’s Stone. I’ve seen this countless times as a kid but I didn’t remember loving it as much as I did after my most recent watch. It is so much fun and the world building is incredible. It gets you so deeply invested in the wizarding world and our three main characters. It is also just a great adventure film with a twist that I personally loved. For a kid-friendly movie it touches on darker elements and I found myself noticing them more on this watch. Overall, there are a couple flaws and it isn’t my favourite of the series but I love this film and I think it’s fantastic.
