Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone ★★★

And so begins the 8-part Hairy Pooper marathon, that will be done across 7 weeks, one movie every Saturday. 

Didn’t remember jack shit from this except the troll and the Quirrell/Voldemort reveal so it was quite the brand new experience seeing it again. The CGI, while the best that could’ve been done with 2001 tech, admittedly hasn’t aged as well as Fellowship of the Ring that came out the same year (understatement of the month), but who cares? The now-bad CGI could even add to the effect! 

It’s very kid-oriented, with a definitely not-as-mature tone, but despite that it still drags in spots as well with the decently, very long runtime. However, it still succeeds in immersing me into the world, to the best of its capability, so I can’t really complain.
