    Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

    ★★★½

    I’ve always liked this one, it’s a good time, and a cracking, wholesome watch with more exciting bits than the first. However, after an ungodly number of rewatches, scenes that had once captured my imagination, like an artist capturing the sun spitting its rays, became bleached through overuse. For me, HP & The Chamber Of Secrets had lost a sliver of its initial wonderment and ✨magic✨. Whether it be my own, defeated, copy of the book, with it’s worn out binding…

    Anxiety, like a belligerent bandit, tends to steal words, rattles breath, and snaffles stillness; Villeneuve’s ‘Prisoners’, in many aspects, was certainly anxiety-inducing.

Untouched.

    Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

    ★★★½

    I remember with crystal-ball clarity the day young Harry Potter and the Wizarding world Slytherin-to my life. I recall being spellbound & utterly enthralled when my primary teacher read aloud ‘Harry Potter & The Philosophers Stone’ one dreary afternoon during carpet time. I was focused, for what seemed the first time in one of her drawn-out, ritualistic reading sessions. Two chapters in, I was pleasantly eased into a world far from mundane, and far from a muggle realm that carried a general…
