Movie Review: Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone worth the credit of 3 1/2 stars.
This is one of the best movies of all time. This is the movie that started it all; the entire Harry Potter film series was launched due to the sheer success of the first movie, Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone.
The movie begins by introducing you to a baby Harry Potter, who is being dropped off at his aunt and uncles house by Albus Dumbledore (headmaster of Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry), Rubius Hagrid, and Professor McGonagall. There is a teary goodbye, but Dumbledore reassures everyone they will see Harry again soon.
Flash forward to when Harry is now eleven, living with his monstrous aunt and uncle and terrible cousin named Dudley. Harry finally receives a letter from Hagrid congratulating him on his acceptance to Hogwarts after the extreme lengths his uncle attempted to prevent him from receiving his letter. Hagrid whisks Harry away, and shows him the life he is supposed to lead as the famous “Boy who Lived” in their magical realm.
Harry becomes best friends with Ron Weasely, and Hermione Granger and all three are placed into the Gryffindor house. The three learn of Voldemort, who is after Harry to try and finish killing him. The three best friends devise a plan to locate the sorcerers stone, which they believe Voldemort and their Potions professor, Snape, are after.
While watching Harry join the Quidditch team, enjoy his first Christmas with presents for him, fight off a troll on Halloween, and make friends we learn of his plan to sneak up onto the third floor of Hogwarts and locate the almighty sorcerers stone, which will give whoever possesses it immortality. Harry and the gang neak into the trap door that lies under the three-headed dog named Fluffy, escape some dreaded tangling vegetation, find the big key in a flock of flying keys, and play a game of Wizards chess where the friends take on the actual roles of pawns and kings. Harry finally makes it to the end where we see Professor Quirrell, who is also Lord Voldemort.
Harry kills him with just his hands, melting off his face due to the “true love” that lies under his skin, and somehow also makes out with the Sorcerers stone.
This movie is amazing and capturing, it makes you feel for the characters and makes you root for them in all of the movies to come.
