Movie Reviews

Not bad...

"This documentary doesn't have any interviews with J.K.Rowling, or with anyone for that matter. J.K.Rowling's life and the birth of Harry Potter are explained entirely by the narrator of this hour-long program, while we see images and footage of different places in Britain. It is nicely put together and quite informative, although I think for the knowledgeable fan, there isn't anything new."
5 minutes of material stretched into an hour is BORING!!!

"This seems to have been sponsored by some kind of United Kingdom tourism bureau, as it mainly depicts still photographs of places for Harry Potter fans to visit. They mention MANY times what a "private person" J.K. Rowling is, which is, of course, the excuse for why there is NO SUBSTANCE whatsoever to this DVD. I'm hesitant to even call it a movie, since it plays much more like a slide show with a narrative (plagued with lots of speculative "filler" to kill time). Save your money, or if you must see it, get it from your library or request it by interlibrary loan. If you don't have to PAY to watch it, you might feel somewhat less pain for having wasted an hour of your time on it."

"It came in good condition. It was not what I expected but it was very interesting the same. I learned a lot from it and wish that she would keep Harry Potter going."
