So I wrote this post back on March 31, 2010 – but I figured, nobody wants to read me live blogging, right? Wrong. Apparently, live blogging was an enjoyable experience for some of you out there. Mind you, when I wrote this, I was still fresh to the HP franchise, so I had no idea what was going on. But, I’m proud (I guess) to say that I’ve completed all 7 books and watched all of the movie so far. Yay nerd-om. So here is my “live” experience with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
Ok, let’s get this out of the way. No – I have not read any of the Harry Potter books nor have I seen any of the Harry Potter movies. I know, let that sink in. Why, you ask? I don’t know. I never got around to it, it wasn’t my cup of tea, I’m more of a Lord of the Rings person – you pick an excuse for me. The point is, I never had anything to do with the “magical world” of Harry Potter.
Well, that’s kind of untrue now. A couple of weeks ago, I was forced to listen to something else besides music at work when the “iron curtain” came down in the form of music stations being blocked at work. So, my co-worker was kind enough to let me borrow his Harry Potter audio books.
And I have to admit, they’re pretty good. Sure there are some major plot points that have been ruined for me, but that’s ok. I never thought that I’d actually give this series a chance. But after listening to the first book, I was hooked. (LAWL that rhymed).
After “reading” a bit of the third book, I realized that I still haven’t seen any of the movies. So, I Netflix’d the first movie.
So, here is a “live” post about my thoughts on the movie, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. I hope you find this entry ridiculous and entertaining. Also, if you’re one of those rare people that have never seen or read Harry Potter, there might be some spoilers in here, so be weary. So go pop in the first movie, sit down, grab some popcorn, and visualize I am there watching the movie alongside you!
- Hagrid’s much smaller. Like a young, alcoholic Santa instead of the giant in the book.
- WHY DOESN’T DUDDERS LOOK ARYAN THE WAY HE WAS DESCRIBED IN THE BOOK?!
- This should be called “Harry Potter and the Abrupt Beginning of the Movie: Just So We Can Get to Hogwarts”
Keep reading for more sassiness!
