146. November 12/13, 2010 - Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001)

I still firmly believe that this film series needed to start out this way. It had to be candy-coated and over-the-top and glowy, because the audience is being introduced to this world in the same way that Harry is. Despite the fact that it's dangerous and there is darkness, the wizarding world is a million times better than living under the stairs at the Dursley's. It needs to look like that. A lot of attention has always been put on the casting decisions regarding the children, but honestly, the Hogwarts staff cast is amazing.

I'm watching all of these before the midnight show of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One on Thursday.

My first entry for this film (before the midnight showing of Half-Blood Prince) is here.
