Pretty sure this is the only film I’ve seen of the Harry Potter Franchise, but it is possible that I’ve seen Chamber of Secrets and just don’t remember. I’ve seen this several times only because this and Batman begins were like the only movies my grandma had to watch in the car.
But that being said, I do quite enjoy this. It’s a solid introduction to the fascinating world of Harry Potter. I have a feeling that I’ll most likely enjoy the rest of the franchise.
I’ve never really thought about watching all of the movies until recently, so I thought I would give the rest of the movies I try, since I do quite enjoy this one.
And yeah obviously the visual effects are pretty doo doo, I mean they look more like cheap animation than cgi. But hey, considering this came out in 2001 it isn’t that bad, CGI was just starting to get better around that time.
