Daddy's gone mad, hasn't he?
Kicking off my day of Harry Potter with Philosopher's Stone. I'm going to come outright and say I bloody love the Harry Potter films, I especially love the hammy acting, the ridiculously posh accents all the kids have and just how plain ridiculous they are. The first few films really embody this, I don't know if I'm just lucky but child actors don't ever irritate me, shit these kids are so cute!!
Some of my favourite scenes from the films are the ones with the Dursleys, Uncle Vernon is incredible!
Yeah, so this film always surprises me by how short it is, considering how much they cram in. It's admirable really, but I feel like that if you had no clue about Harry Potter none of it would make any sense.
This film also has the most amount if screen time for my beloved Oliver Wood, HE'S JUST TOO BEAUTIFUL.
