  • Extended Version???

    Really disappointing to find that the US get the Extended version as an iTunes Extra. Isn’t it about time the UK fan base got treated to this too?

    Looks like the box set has been taken down and you now have to buy individually, glad I only bought it the other day!
  • Not good at all

    By lostinlostwithiel
    The book was a very bad piece of writing. The film is just as bad. Dull one-dimensional characters.. Slovenly constructed plot. Dull, unoriginal land boring.
  • Yes!!

    To start off with, this is my childhood! I have grown up with going to the cinema, seeing every film 20x over and reading the books several times as well!! What's not to love?!! A boy who finds out he's a wizard and goes to a school of witchcraft and wizardry!! I have always loved Harry potter and always will! I know virtually every word in the movies, I have been to the studio tour just outside of London!! I am proud to say that this is a British film with British actors!! I am so glad iTunes called it the philosophers stone!! Sorcerers stone? Ha Americans are such idiots?!!! I am annoyed that the soundtrack is called that tho... Anyway overall I highly recommend this and is probably in my top five movies of all time!! Along with other Harry Potters and lord of the rings!! Do buy!!!
