Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone ★★★

HARRY POTTER MARATHON FOR WARNER BROS STUDIOS #1
Man it’s been ages since I’ve watched this film. I still remember the day I bought the DVD for this. And to be honest watching the film, being older & such, it didn’t hold up. But that’s not to say it’s a bad film, on the contrary this is a very high 3 star rated film. The main problems being pacing & story. The VFX surprisingly hold up. And the cosy atmosphere the film creates is also something to enjoy. John Williams’ score is timeless even if the main theme is over used in the film.
A lovely kickoff to a brilliant franchise.
