07.24.10DVD Still my favorite movie probably. We're playing LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4 right now and it's pretty evident that they took most of Hogwarts' geography and design from this film, which is wise i think because this movie really made the grounds real and livable. It's also the last movie that didn't need to skip half the source material to make it down to 3 hours. good stuff that i've probably talked about many times now.
06.30.05DVD I think this is by far the best movie so far. I'm looking forward to the next book and the next movie now.
12.27.04R/C Frederick As Harry matures so do his movies. This is the best so far in the series. A large part of the charm of Harry Potter is seeing magic in the context of the real world. When watching this, it makes the memory of Chris Columbus' two films seem fantastickal and surreal. This also has the benefit of two films' worth of backstory leading into it. Given that we've already seen a lot of this universe, this wastes no time with any recaps and even ignores the change of all the settings and even a new Dumbledore. I don't quite buy the movie vs. filmed book argument that most people throw in favor of this; it's my hunch that Cuaron's just a better director, making much better use of his camera and composition. It does twinge a bit Burton-esque, but only in a good way. I also think that the actors are getting better with each film.
