Books VS. Movies: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

It seems like nowadays that all of our favorite books are being turned into movies. This meme is about the failures and winners of the silver screen in comparison to their books.

I'm not going to write about all of the movies but there are a few of these that stuck out as absolutely amazing, and others that I found great disappointment in. To begin, I have to talk about The Sorcerer's Stone. I read this book when I was in the fourth grade, and it was magical. It wasn't my first book love, but it was the first book that brought me out of reality into the Harry Potter world. It spoke to me and resonated with me for multiple reasons, which I'm sure it did all of you.



Anyway, the movie was absolutely stunning. When I went to go see it, I couldn't believe how well the whole world came alive on the screen. It was as if I literally opened the book and the very imagery from the pages were being projected onto the screen. For lack of a better word, it was magic. Of course they left out a few details, but come one people, there's no way they couldn't include everything (as much as we all wanted them too). One of the things I really missed though was Lee Jordan's commentary during Harry's first Qudditch match. I'm sure there are many more things like that were looked over, but to this day it's still the best movie adaptation I have ever seen. The casting was amazing, the outfits, the world, everything. It was magnificient.

With the future editions of this meme, I'll break down more thoroughly the strengths and pit falls of the movie adaptations, but maybe I couldn't think of any in this case. Everything that movie missed was not enough to fault it.

  2. I told you all of this rather boring stuff so you could understand why there is a membership fee. The world would indeed be a nicer place if people we didn't even know were willing to spend all of that money so we could download free online movies, TV shows and more. watchmoviesonline
