Movie Review by Movie Addict
July 26th, 2007

Favorite Movie Quote: "It does not do to dwell on dreams, Harry."

I went back to revisit this film after 10 years. It was one of the Chris Columbus films that were more light fantasy and enjoyable in that light.

This is the film that Harry discovers who he is. Others know more about him than he does. We are introduced to all the great characters that we have come to know and love: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Maggie Smith, Tom Felton, and Robbie Coltrane, in particular.

We see the spectacular art and set decorations, particularly in the Great hall by Stuart Craig (art director) and Stephanie McMillan (set decorator). Costume design by Judianna Makovsky and music by John Williams makes this a film to remember. The special effects were fantastic.

With close supervision by author J.K. Rowling and unprecedented approval of all aspects of the movie, we know we are going to get something that will not upset book fans, and we did.
