Movie Reviews

Marketing hype 1, DVD 0
08/12/2000
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I like the Harry Potter books (and I am 24), I respect the author as well, for sticking to her guns and writing this through the hardship she faced as a single mother. But this is a waste of a DVD and should be avoided.There is nothing revealing, nothing earth shattering, and very little that is even interesting. Save the money and wait for book 5 and buy that instead."
Give This Film A Chance: In your very skin like the books
10/07/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Give This Film A Chance, it deserve it! any harry potter documation is worth watching even if it has a reputation as a recycling the best children's book. It is a fantasy for children but any ADULT would love it if one would simply give this book a chance. It took me back to the beauty of being a curious child. There was a great "cliffhanger" feeling after each chapter. Favorite Lines: "...He didn't realize that love as powerful as your mother's for you leaves its own mark. Not a scar, no visible sign...to have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loves us is gone, will give us some protection forever. It is in your very skin..." like the books I thought that I was too mature to read these books or to see the film. well this film is not for kids but more for older people like me and I am 34."
Pleasantly Surprised

"I wasn't expecting too much from an "unauthorized story" about J.K. Rowling. I was pleasantly surprised to find that much of the video shows her speaking. She comes across as a very sincere and charming person. Her remarks are quite intelligent and interesting and she gives us a hint of what to expect next, both in the books and the movie."
