10/10 i love the books too :)

Great Movie&Franchise to The Book Series.

Of course as this was made in 2001 this movie isn't going to be as graphically intense as the later movies, i thought it was great!
I've never been a huge Harry Potter fan, but you dont really have to be. The whole cast is brilliant and this film allows you to escape from reality and experience the world of magic. A fun film to watch for both adults and children. Perhaps this film may be more of a beacon for Harry Potter fans, but its just as satisfying for those who are not.

Grade: B+
I remember seeing this film in theaters all those years ago and just absolutely loving it, and I was a die-hard fan of the books. Many have pointed out that the film does not stray from the book in any way, and I really liked that. However, now as I look back on the film it seems very basic, maybe for a kid film is should be (how the Potter films have grown up!). The acting is generally spot on, Richard Harris as Dumbledore is perfect, Maggie Smith as Minerva McGonnagall is excellent, Alan Rickman portrays a wonderfully evil Snape, and Robbie Coltrane is very believable as the 10 foot tall Gatekeeper. The only acting problems that I saw were in the three leads (Radcliffe, Watson, Grint), they seemed to have no clue as to what they were doing, but they were very young, it's forgivable, and they have gotten better. The special effects in the film were quite good when the film came out, I remember loving the quidditch scene epscially.

All in all, I think "Socerer's Stone" is a good adaptation of the first Potter book, but if Christopher Columbus had stayed on as Director the film series would probaly not be anywhere as big as they are now. Non-fans of the books would just have been bored. 3/4 Stars.
