Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

It is hard to believe it has been nearly a decade since many family herded their kids into the car and headed down to the local cinemas to see this first installment of the Harry Potter movies. The main players, Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron Weasley (Rupert Gint), Hermione Granger (Emma Watson), and their first magical rival, Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton) were all just pre-teens then, dealing with things they never dreamed of. Some were ready for the challenge, growing up with, or researching what was coming to them. Harry was the most un-prepared, yet the most powerful of them all. We saw glimpse of Harry’s miserable home life with the Dursleys. Vernon Dursley (Richard Griffiths), who is perpetually in denial about magic. His wife, Petunia (Fiona Shaw), who knows that it does exists, but would rather not deal with it, and supports Vernon fully. That leaves Dudley (Harry Melling), whom is a male version of Veruca Salt from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. A beefy brat that is so spoiled, that if he was a carton of milk the expiration date on him would have been 322 B.C.E.

Night at the Museum

This movie never won an Oscar for anything, will never be listed in the AFI top 100 of anything, but it is full of fun, cute, and funny, and tops the list of my all time favourites. There are many reasons why, but I don’t think I can list them all here. Could be the story of a confused loser who finds a different kind of success in an unusual place. Could be all the historical figures interacting with this one night guard who thinks he can get the best of them after learning a little bit about them, but they still turn the tables on him. It could be the great finale featuring the Earth, Wind, & Fire music. Let’s get a quick summary. Oddly, when I was in 4th grade, every time we watched some kind of movie in school, the teacher would make us write a summary/essay on what we saw. I really hated it then, but it’s different when you do it for movies you like, the movies you want to watch, not the ones you have to watch.
