I am a huge Harry Potter fan and as a rule, I always have to read the books before I watch the movies. I felt that Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, the first of the movies, followed the book fairly well and included a lot of the details from the book without making it into such a long movie. This movie was magical with some of the darkness that Harry experiences in his years at Hogwarts, but not so much that it is too scary. I never get tired of watching these movies and it is always fun to start over at the beginning and watch all of the movies over from the beginning. If you've never seen or watched the movies, I would recommend reading the book first and then watching the movie so you get the whole picture of Harry's story; however, the movie does a great job telling a lot of the story. I highly recommend this movie!
I first watched Harry Potter when I was bored and my friend's daughter (who was 11 at the time) really wanted to go see it. I don't believe I had heard of Harry Potter at all at the time. I figured I'd go with them and have something nice to do that evening. On our way back my friend couldn't stop laughing as I (at the time 23 years old) asked numerous questions to her daughter who had read the first few books. I was completely enchanted with the story (who isn't?) and the very next day I bought the paperback at the grocery store (before Kindles lol). That's how I came to know Harry Potter's world.
Now, fast forward a few years and I have two kids, 6 and 4. We are currently stuck at the Toyota dealership waiting for them to fix a recall issue and change the oil... It turns out that if you sit in the right area, you can have a decent free wireless signal. My kiddos are thus enjoying this movie in the Kindle fire. How magical that they can be entertained with the same movie...
I love it, unfortunately, I can't watch it because Amazon wants me to download a Microsoft Silverlight plugin on my Mac, a plugin that I had to uninstall the last time I downloaded because of all the problems it caused my macbook. I'm not going to reinstall it now, even though I would love to watch this Harry Potter video that I just rented. Thanks, Amazon, for using a plug in that's not very compatible with Macs !
