Everyone's favorite novice wizard, Harry Potter, continues his high-flying adventures at Hogwarts. This time around, Harry ignores warnings not to return to school - that is, if he values his life - to investigate a mysterious series of attacks with Ron and Hermione.
The on-screen adaptation of the sequel to Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone takes us on yet another whimsical journey of magic & wonders and covers Harry Potter's second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry. But even though it is a pretty faithful adaptation of its source material, it doesn't add anything new at all to the world we already witnessed in its predecessor and simply moves the story forward without providing any improved feeling of freshness or excitement.
Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets begins with Harry Potter being warned by a house-elf against returning to Hogwarts which, as obvious, he ignores. With friendship getting stronger & rivalries becoming more intense, the second year is full of surprises for our young…
Columbus’ second and final return to Hogwarts excels nearly as much as the first, picking up right where he left off after The Philosopher’s Stone. We find Harry at his home, similarly miserable, longing to return to Hogwarts. After undergoing what is a series of truly unfortunate events, a wonderful stay at the Weasley’s and a particularly sketchy alley that happens to extend right off of the area where all the students buy their school supplies; Harry and Ron finally crash-land at Hogwarts to find much more of the same. Fun, whimsy and extreme danger. This beginning, though, should not be understated. With the first film, Columbus deftly managed to create Hogwarts in cinematic form, functioning as an excellent base…
im absolutely FURIOUS that hugh grant turned down the role of gilderoy lockhart
The early Harry Potter films built the Hogwarts world beautifully by recreating exactly what J K Rowling put on paper. We all had our own ideas and let our imagination run wild as we read how she described the magical world of witches and wizards, but seeing it on celluloid really brought it to life for me. I'm one of those people where sometimes the film actually is better than the book.
With this second installment the bonds between the three main characters continued to strengthen as they all started to find their feet at Hogwarts. It starts badly of course for Harry as his treatment from the Dursley's continues to look like child abuse, but with friends like Ron…
It is not our abilities that show who we are. It is our choices.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is excruciating. 2 hours and 40 minutes of poor plotting, terrible pacing, and hammed-up character beats. The only Harry Potter film to end with a totally out of the blue "emotional moment" involving a character that's borderline irrelevant to the film. It's painful.
This film suffers because of the quality of the novel.
Another fun Harry Potter movie. Lacked in technical areas that definitely needed work but not where it counted the most, in the heart. It was as fun and enjoyable as the first.
Hagrid is basically that cool janitor you remember from high school that wouldn't tell on you whenever he caught you smoking with your friends just off campus during third period.
Etwas besser als der erste
Nothing new to add from previous watches other than that the guy who plays Tom Riddle singlehandedly knocks this down at least half a star.
i daresay this is my favourite
Im late to watching the HP films but I'm deffinely disappointed that I waited this long.
This film was a mess
"Dobby is a free elf!"
Second in the franchise and it keeps the high standards set by the first film. Columbus does a great job of maintaining the tone of magical wonder and mystery of the first film. And that really is the best parts of these movies.
I didn't remember liking this one as much as the first one, but upon rewatching it, dammit, if I don't like THIS one better!
The CGI got much better in this film than the first. It didn't stick out as much as in the original and integrated itself into the picture much more smoothly than before. Just seemed much more natural and that was a big plus for me.
I'm enjoying the rewatch on this series, I think I will keep it up.
Didn't realize how long it had been since I had seen them and how much I had enjoyed them. And they are really holding up well. Nice.
Chris Columbus is better and somehow worse here.
I love love Christmas and Christmas movies!!
