Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, a review by addicted2dvd



Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Year: 2001
Length: 152min.
Director: Chris Columbus
Stars:
Daniel Radcliffe
Rupert Grint
Emma Watson

Plot:
Harry Potter learns on his 11th birthday that he is the orphaned son of two powerful wizards and possesses magical powers of his own. At Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry embarks on the adventure of a lifetime, discovering a world of magic and fantasy where he is destined to live.

My Thoughts:
This is the first time I have watched this movie since I first got 5 years ago. So it was really like watching it for the first time again. It is a fun movie... I enjoyed it. I can see why my daughter enjoys these movies so much. Even though this is a rather long movie you don't realize it while watching it as the time flies without you even realizing it.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

The Men Who Stare at Goats, a review by RossRoy


The Men Who Stare at Goats
WHAT THEY SAY
In this comedic look at real life evetns that are almost too bizarre to believe, reporter Bob Wilton (Ewan McGregor) teams up with Lyn Cassidy (George Clooney) and discovers an experimental top-secret wing of the U.S. military. Here soldiers are trained to change the ways wars are fought through New Age psychic powers by passing through walls, reading the enemy's thoughts and even killing a goat by simply staring at it.

Inspired by Jon Ronson's non-fiction best-seller of the same name, this is an eye-opening and hilarious story of the government's attempts to harness soldier's paranormal abilities in order to combat its enemies.

MY THOUGHTS
I really liked this movie! It's not an out and out comedy. It is really absurd at times, and it does have moments of laugh out loud moments.

All four main actors are really great in their role. I particularly loved Kevin Spacey.. but I do have a "soft spot" for him. I like him in pretty much anything he's done.

In Miss Yukari's English class, every day is an adventure.

And with the arrival of two transfer students - a ten-year-old prodigy and a space cadet - it's going to be an intersting class! Between handling enormous assignments, dodging murderous volleyballs, and eduring endless rivalries, summer vacation should serve as a welcome break for the weary student - unless your teachers come with you! Getting through three years alive with this motley crew is going to be an adventure!

A great conclusion to the series. Throughout the 24 episodes we saw the girls going through their three years of Japanese high school. And in this episode they are graduating and it is fairly emotional. This episode suggests that the friendships they have built throughout this series will last even after everyone will go their separate ways.

And I really liked how true to the manga they stayed with this series, even though the manga was a four-panel comic strip and you wouldn't think it would be fitting for such a series.
