Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone ★★★★

Features a special charm that not a lot of films have ever been able to replicate - let alone the rest of the franchise. Special effects don’t hold up quite as well as its successors though unfortunately, and it’s very overlong, but Richard Harris’ Dumbledore is absolutely the shining light of this whole thing. I miss him. Always love revisiting these... makes me feel like that 7 year old kid again who’s sitting on the couch in his Gryffindor robe, twirling his wand around and yelling WINGARDIUM LEVIOSA at the top of his lungs without a care in the world. There’s nothing better.
