Harry Potter and the Socerer's Stone

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
(Warner Bros., 2001)

Absolute film magic in the opener of the series, a faithful but not slavish adaptation of the book with the author's full input and approval, earning three Oscar nominations and just shy of a billion dollars worldwide, or about eight times its production budget. The critics who racked it for this and that sound properly silly and petty now, while the film remains perfectly marvelous.
