Here's an event movie that holds up to being an event. This filmed version of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, adapted from the wildly popular book by J.K. Rowling, stunningly brings to life Harry Potter's world of Hogwarts, the school for young witches and wizards. The greatest strength of the film comes from its faithfulness to the novel, and this new cinematic world is filled with all the details of Rowling's imagination, thanks to exuberant sets, elaborate costumes, clever makeup and visual effects, and a crème de la crème cast, including Maggie Smith, Richard Harris, Alan Rickman, and more. Especially fine is the interplay between Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and his schoolmates Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson), as well as his protector, the looming Hagrid (Robbie Coltrane). The second-half adventure--involving the titular sorcerer's stone--doesn't translate perfectly from page to screen, ultimately because of the film's fidelity to the novel; this is a case of making a movie for the book's fans, as opposed to a transcending film. Writer Steve Kloves and director Chris Columbus keep the spooks in check, making this a true family film, and with its resourceful hero wide-eyed and ready, one can't wait for Harry's return. Ages 8 and up. --Doug Thomas

Il y a deja eu beaucoup de commentaires concernant les films de la franchise Harry Potter. Personnellement, je les aime beaucoup (j'adore les livres, lus en anglais et en francais). Notre fille de 6.5 ans decouvre le monde magique de Harry Potter. Elle regarde principalement les films en V.O (en anglais) mais par moment, elle aime les voir en francais. Les USA ne proposent pas les 3 premiers films de HP avec un doublage francais, et avec la France, il y a le probleme des zones. Mais, merci le Canada pour offrir une version bilingue = doublage et sous-titres en francais !!
C'est parfait. Ma seule remarque serait que le menu du disque n'est pas vraiment pratique. Le menu est en anglais (je pensais qu'il y aurait des options "francais/English" comme dans certains blu-ray, ou bien je ne l'ai pas trouvee), avec une liste detaillee des bonus que l'on trouve dans la version DVD avec les 2 disques. Sur ce coup, je suis agreablement surprise.
Tout ca pour dire que je suis contente de mes achats (HP 1 a 5) :)

A lot has been said and written about the Harry Potter movies. I personally like them a lot and I love the books. Our 6.5YO daughter watches the movies in English but every once in a while, she likes watching in French. However the USA do not have the first 3 movies dubbed in French and France has a different dvd/blu ray region (that can easily fixed). Thanks Canada for having bilingual versions = dubbed in French AND French subtitles. It is perfect! My only complaint is that the menu is not user friendly. First, it's in English (I thought we could have the option "Francais/English" like for some dvds or blu-rays, or I might not have found this option), the list of bonus is quite large (still everything in English and so many bonuses) which is actually is good surprise. I thought we only got the film. And there is no scene selection. Okay, this not a big deal.
Overall, I am really glad I got the bilingual versions.

Ok I admit it I have read the books and I eagerly awaited the movie. I am almost as big of a Harry Potter fan as some of those kids. I have found myself not so patiently waiting for the next book and the next movie to come out. This movie has stunning visual effects, you almost feel Fluffy slobbering on you. During the Quidditch matches you want to reach out and take a hold of Harry's Nimbus 2000 and feel like you are flying with them. This movie has come along at a time when parents need to escape into to the magic world even more than the kids. The director went to great pains to stay as close to the story as possible and has done a great job. In fact, this movie made me re-read the books.

Format: DVD
This was a near impossible task with a very decent result. Translating the epic story and themes and feel of Harry Potter into the celluloid world and not angering the devoted fanbase is not something any wizard would attempt. But thankfully, with much control and input from J.K., so much of what we love about Harry survives Hollywood and even thrives.

As a note, I usually do not partake in a dvd review unless I have seen all the extras, commentaries, easter eggs, and assorted other goodies available. Call it my anal-retentive crazy side, but I like to immerse myself fully in something I like this much. But not all the dvd's in this series that I have come with these specials. Much crying now ensues. And the extras will be consumed by me soon enough, which shall be fun.

Mush of my liking of the movie Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is how much is harvested from the delightful source material. From characters matching what you expect in your mind's eye to Hogwart's moving and creaking just like it should to Hagrid being the most amazing Hagrid. Let me be clear on this one point, Hagrid Rocks! Slightly mushed cake and all.

With all the absolutely essential parts in place, the movie presents a necessarily streamlined version of the story. This works for what they have to do here, compressing everything into two hours and a half. Very early on in my viewing, my mind switched the Harry Potter movie cannon into a parallel universe. It is the only way to enjoy the films for what they present and not drive your senses crazy because a favourite scene or character vanishes or is given short shift. Everytime a little something you consider essential does not make the cut, a little piece of you dies.

Daniel Radcliffe stars as Harry, a rather pitiful orphan who lives with his mean aunt and uncle. On his 11th birthday, Harry discovers he is a wizard and happily leaves home for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. There, he makes his first-ever pals - classmates Ron and Hermione, and their friendship is the heart of the story. We follow the trio as they go through their first year at school attending magic classes, finding adventure, and even solving a mystery that puts Harry face-to-face with the dark wizard who killed his parents.

Radcliffe captures the innocence and sadness of Harry, as well as his daring-do and sense of fun. Rupert Grint, as his sidekick Ron, delivers most of the comedy lines and is very appealing. Emma Watson plays Hermione with a heart of gold underneath her bookish bossiness. They are supported by a stellar cast, including Maggie Smith and Alan Rickman. There is lots of action, fun special effects, and some sweet, poignant moments as well.

All ages can enjoy this movie, even if you haven't read the book. It's wholesome family entertainment that will leave you feeling good and looking forward to the next film in the series.
