"Now if you two don't mind, I'm going to bed before either of you come up with another clever idea to get us killed - or worse, expelled." - Hermione Granger, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001)

Domestic Box Office Gross: $317,557,891

Synopsis: A young boy in horrible living conditions learns that he's a hero wizard. Harry Potter must now contend with his legend as 'The boy who lived' and eliminated 'He who must not be named' while attending his first year at Hogwarts school for Wizards and Witches.

Fact: Robbie Coltrane was hand picked by author J.K. Rowling and was the first person cast.

Trivia: Richard Harris only took the part of Dumbledore because his granddaughter threatened to never speak to him again.

Movie Mistake: The plastic used to make Neville's ears stick out is visible when Dumbledore awards him 10 points.

My Take: It's hard to knock this series because they do the best they can with such extensive material. It's even harder when you see such an atrocity as Eragon. If you love the books you'll like the movies and if you've never read the books I think you'll love the films.
