With Hagrid holding the Dursleys under control, Harry at last peruses his letter, in which he learns he has been welcome to study enchantment at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Emma Watson possibly slightly overplays Hermione, but does so in a fully endearing fashion. The blame here must fall on the decision to give the actors too much to do too quickly, not on the actors themselves. The 4K presentation of Sorcerer's Stone instantly supplants the Blu-ray as the definitive visual presentation of the film that launched the franchise. The movie doesn't tap into these anxieties enough, so why should we care whether he wins the Quidditch match other than that he survives in one piece and gets through the school year?

It's fairly obvious that things are shot in many disparate locations, rather than one big Hogwarts School near Hogsmeade. Textures are sharp and colorful, and both levels and characters feel like they fit in perfectly with the world of Harry Potter. The movie changes strongly exaggerate one side of Hagrid's nature, though; probably inevitable considering how much plot exposition his character has. Alan Rickman is wonderfully villainous as Professor Snape and Zoe Wanamaker has just the right touch of girls gym teacher as flying instructor Madame Hooch.
With these new Potter discs joining first-class catalog 4K titles like and , Warner is giving fans a meaningful incentive to invest in home video's latest format.

Famous for an incident that happened at his birth, Harry makes friends easily at his new school. For instance, the lower-tech-looking Sorting Hat scene is one of the most delightful of them all. You get chills in your spine at the right places; you feel the triumphs as all-encompassing endorphin highs. Even tho I Love this game I do have a question.
The movies kinda feel like it goes from one thing to the next without much ceremony. Its lack of fullness, and its dependence on the book, might actually increase the popularity and endurance of Rowling's series by making those who see the film yearn for more, which they can get from the real thing. The soundtrack may rely too heavily on The Famous Bit, but it's clear that the balance and mixture of things in the finished movie are exactly right. I am pretty sure they had the book as the script for this movie because it so closely re-enacts the very sense from the book that I had visualized for so long. . Other than these rare jarring instances, the physical acting is frequently excellent and seldom less than completely adequate, judged against the highest of targets set by the book's clear emotion descriptions. The purchase was well worth it, with the additional scenes making an already great movie even more fun for fans of the books - or just fans of the movie who want to see more.

Perhaps it should have diverged from the book just a little, to compensate for the difficulties in translating some of the book's delights to the screen. Some punchlines have changed, but the reasons why the jokes are funny remain the same. I was a fan of Harry Potter before the movies even came out. I watched this movie first time when I was left with no choice. There was so much anticipation leading up to its release, I simply enjoyed the experience of being there. The answer, I think, is that the books portray much of Harry's anxiety in trying to succeed in school for if he's kicked out, he'll go straight back to his horrible uncle and fit in with the kids there.
