My wife finally convinced me to watch this movie with her. She hadn’t seen it before either. I’ve heard a few good things about it, but they were all damn lies. This movie was awful, and the qwiditch match sucked too. The kid that played Harry read flatter than Jake Lloyd, moved more awkwardly than anyone I’ve ever seen in a movie, and had less facial expression than a muppet. I understand the story was for kids, so the seemingly undirected meanderings, heavy handed foreshadowing, and in your face morals are excusable.

I can understand why kids like it, but I can’t see why adults would have recommended it to me.
