Just finished Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and then watched the film! On to the second? Well, before that, here's some meanderings on what I thought of the two.
I wasn't ever a big fan of Harry Potter. I remember seeing the first film and thought it was just okay. I think I didn't even bother watching the next one or two of films, though I think I saw the third or fourth because friends went to see it, or because it was on TV something. Then I recall having seen the 4th or 5th one and thinking that it was pretty good and actually went back to watch the ones i missed and watched the rest as they came out. I guess for me, they were getting better, maybe due to the story or because they were darker films?
