(ENG-ESP) The Film Review - Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

in Movies & TV Shows4 months ago

As the wizarding world knows, there is something very special about Harry Potter. He's a wizard, but unlike other wizards, he has something that makes him even more powerful: a connection to the magical world. He can see it and speak to it as if it was a person. And not just any person, but the most important one: the Dark Lord. So when Voldemort resurfaces in our world again after spending decades in his prison at the Wizarding War Museum, it's only natural that people are worried. Are there others like him? What is he planning? Is he back to finish what he started?

These are things we will find out later this year when Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone arrives in theaters. I am quite excited to see this movie because I have read all seven books by J. K. Rowling so far and I cannot wait to learn more about this character that has fascinated me so much throughout my life (and which also inspired me greatly in some way). And with regards to movies based on books, this is definitely one of my favorites because of how well they have been done before and how different each movie stays from its original source material (though some do better than others). But enough talking about this film already! Let's get into my review of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone!

Como el mundo de los magos sabe, Harry Potter tiene algo muy especial. Es un mago, pero a diferencia de otros magos, tiene algo que lo hace aún más poderoso: una conexión con el mundo mágico. Puede verlo y hablarle como si fuera una persona. Y no cualquier persona, sino la más importante: el Señor Oscuro. Por eso, cuando Voldemort reaparece en nuestro mundo después de pasar décadas en su prisión en el Museo de la Guerra de los Magos, es natural que la gente se preocupe. ¿Hay otros como él? ¿Qué está planeando? ¿Ha vuelto para terminar lo que empezó?

Estas son las cosas que descubriremos a finales de este año cuando Harry Potter y la Piedra Filosofal llegue a los cines. Estoy bastante emocionada por ver esta película porque he leído los siete libros de J. K. Rowling hasta ahora y no puedo esperar a saber más sobre este personaje que tanto me ha fascinado a lo largo de mi vida (y que también me ha inspirado mucho en cierto modo). Y con respecto a las películas basadas en libros, esta es definitivamente una de mis favoritas por lo bien que se han hecho antes y lo diferente que se mantiene cada película de su material fuente original (aunque algunas lo hacen mejor que otras). ¡Pero ya basta de hablar de esta película! Pasemos a mi crítica de Harry Potter y la Piedra Filosofal.

How was this movie made?

This movie is based on the first book in the Harry Potter series and was directed by Chris Columbus. The producer of this movie was David Heyman, who was also the producer of the later films. This movie was filmed on a budget of $30 million and was filmed in the United Kingdom. When it comes to making a movie based on a book, there are many things that can go wrong. Many books are too complicated to be filmed accurately and there are many things that can go wrong when you are filming a book. This is why many movies based on books are only animated. But when you make a movie based on a book, you have to make sure that you follow the book as closely as possible. This is why the director and producer of this movie were so important. They were able to make a movie with a budget of just $30 million, but still make it seem as if it was filmed with a much larger budget. This was done by hiring the best actors, getting the best locations, and ensuring that they kept the feeling of the book as close as possible.

Esta película está basada en el primer libro de la serie Harry Potter y fue dirigida por Chris Columbus. El productor de esta película fue David Heyman, que también fue el productor de las películas posteriores. Esta película se filmó con un presupuesto de 30 millones de dólares y se rodó en el Reino Unido. Cuando se trata de hacer una película basada en un libro, hay muchas cosas que pueden salir mal. Muchos libros son demasiado complicados para ser filmados con precisión y hay muchas cosas que pueden salir mal cuando se filma un libro. Por eso muchas películas basadas en libros son sólo de animación. Pero cuando se hace una película basada en un libro, hay que asegurarse de seguir el libro lo más fielmente posible. Por eso el director y el productor de esta película fueron tan importantes. Fueron capaces de hacer una película con un presupuesto de sólo 30 millones de dólares, pero aún así hacerla parecer como si hubiera sido filmada con un presupuesto mucho mayor. Para ello, contrataron a los mejores actores, consiguieron las mejores localizaciones y se aseguraron de mantener la sensación del libro lo más cerca posible.

What did I like about this movie?

  • Acting was great! I loved how each actor perfectly embodied their character. - The special effects were also great! They were able to create many things that were not shown in the book, so that was amazing to see. - I really liked the way Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was filmed in the UK.
    I think it made the film seem much more magical. And what's better than making a movie about wizards that takes place in the real world? - The music in this movie was also excellent. Some of the songs were very important to the plot and I think they were done flawlessly. - I also thought that the pacing of this movie was perfect. It finally arrived on our screens after being in development for so long and it was not rushed at all. So many movies are rushed in order to get them out before Christmas. But Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was not rushed at all! It was a perfect length.
  • La actuación fue genial. Me encantó cómo cada actor encarnó perfectamente su personaje. - Los efectos especiales también fueron geniales. Fueron capaces de crear muchas cosas que no aparecían en el libro, así que fue increíble verlas. - Me gustó mucho la forma en que Harry Potter y la Piedra Filosofal se filmó en el Reino Unido.
    Creo que hizo que la película pareciera mucho más mágica. ¿Y qué mejor que hacer una película sobre magos que tenga lugar en el mundo real? - La música de esta película también fue excelente. Algunas de las canciones eran muy importantes para la trama y creo que se hicieron de forma impecable. - También me pareció que el ritmo de esta película era perfecto. Por fin llegó a nuestras pantallas después de haber estado en desarrollo durante tanto tiempo y no se precipitó en absoluto. Muchas películas se precipitan para poder estrenarlas antes de Navidad. Pero Harry Potter y la Piedra Filosofal no se precipitó en absoluto. Tuvo una duración perfecta.

Story and Characters

This movie is based on the first book in the epic series Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling. Harry Potter is a boy who is a wizard. Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) lives in a small town with his aunt, uncle, and their Dudley- like son, Percy (Thomas Allen-Allen). Harry is a very odd boy and so are his parents, James and Lily Potter. When Harry discovers he is a wizard and has a connection to Voldemort, two very important things happen: he leaves his relatives' home and enrolls at Hogwarts, a school for wizards.
Like I said before, Harry is very odd and he has some strange beliefs and ways. He believes in the supernatural and thinks that he can communicate with the dead (because of some strange dreams he's had). He thinks that Dementors are the ones who suck out the bad parts of people's souls and brings them to Azkaban prison. Although there are many other characters in this movie, we will be looking at Harry, Hermione, and Ron most closely.

Esta película está basada en el primer libro de la serie épica Harry Potter de J.K. Rowling. Harry Potter es un niño que es mago. Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) vive en un pequeño pueblo con su tía, su tío y su hijo, Percy (Thomas Allen-Allen), que es como un Dudley. Harry es un chico muy raro y también lo son sus padres, James y Lily Potter. Cuando Harry descubre que es un mago y que tiene una conexión con Voldemort, ocurren dos cosas muy importantes: abandona la casa de sus familiares y se matricula en Hogwarts, un colegio para magos.
Como he dicho antes, Harry es muy raro y tiene unas creencias y formas extrañas. Cree en lo sobrenatural y piensa que puede comunicarse con los muertos (debido a unos extraños sueños que ha tenido). Cree que los dementores son los que chupan las partes malas del alma de las personas y las llevan a la prisión de Azkaban. Aunque hay muchos otros personajes en esta película, veremos a Harry, Hermione y Ron más de cerca.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone Character Review

Harry Potter: Harry is our main character and he is a very odd boy. He believes in a lot of things that are not normal, such as communicating with the dead and being able to see the world through shades of grey (like a ghost). However, after he learns that he is a wizard, he becomes a great wizard. But before that, he is very awkward and is afraid of everything, even his own shadow.

Ron Weasley: Ron and Harry are best friends who are complete opposites. While Harry is very odd and is afraid of everything, Ron is very carefree and always tries to make jokes about everything. They are opposites in many ways and are usually the two people who think they should stop acting so weird. Hermione Granger: Hermione is Harry's intellectual friend and his only friend who does not believe that Harry is weird. She is always trying to help him learn about his magical abilities, as he is too afraid to do it himself.

Harry Potter: Harry es nuestro protagonista y es un chico muy raro. Cree en muchas cosas que no son normales, como comunicarse con los muertos y poder ver el mundo a través de tonos grises (como un fantasma). Sin embargo, cuando se entera de que es un mago, se convierte en un gran mago. Pero antes de eso, es muy torpe y tiene miedo de todo, incluso de su propia sombra.

Ron Weasley: Ron y Harry son mejores amigos que son completamente opuestos. Mientras que Harry es muy raro y tiene miedo de todo, Ron es muy despreocupado y siempre intenta hacer bromas sobre todo. Son opuestos en muchos aspectos y suelen ser las dos personas que piensan que deberían dejar de actuar tan raro. Hermione Granger: Hermione es la amiga intelectual de Harry y su única amiga que no cree que Harry sea raro. Siempre intenta ayudarle a conocer sus habilidades mágicas, ya que él tiene demasiado miedo de hacerlo por sí mismo.

So you wrote this review in early 2001, and you're just now posting it? Yeah, this whole post sounds sketch, especially given how your English is sooo much different in your comments compared to your posts.

I really can't wait to see that upcoming Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets movie next year.

someone realises that he is caught ..

Wow, two badges in a row, that's awesome @temileke! 🎉

What is interesting, and quite telling, is that the way you respond in comments doesn't align with the way "you write" your posts.

Your English is poor, you use the wrong words, omit critical words and the context is often wrong. The fact that your comments, including those made to me on my Discord, are in complete contradiction to that which "you write" in your posts.

This says a lot, and people see and acknowledge what is going on here.

How is it a contradiction. You actually want to compare a comment made due to the intensity of the exchange of words and also those in the discord, you actually want to compare it with the posts carefully written with maximum time and patience dedicated to it to bring desired result including the vocabulary and the grammatical Tone.
There will actually be difference I guess

Well people can also see the comments I made in their various posts and they can see those comments on their posts are different compared to those made out of intensity and in rush you talked about in the post

They can actually see those comments by themselves not written in a cracky English but with fluent English according to the normal standard of vocabulary, they can also see that there is always room for improvement and learning which also includes vocabulary and grammar, they can also see those comments made in their various post were not made out of rush but was taken time of to make and so they will definitely see the difference. They can actually testify those comments I made on their post are worth scoring high rating in English as best known to them and I inclusive

This also says a lot, and people see and acknowledge that and they can also relate what is going on here because they also might have been in my shoe typing in a rush and out of intensity and they can relate it to when they made their post in a calm way possibly taking their Maximum time to think through and applied the standard of English they know to it.

All of these people can see, read and also relate and come to the understanding the differences that is in it also.

I really don't understand why you are doing all these. But at this point I am force to believe you are actually against my person for a reason I don't know for now. However to prevent further issues, I think it is wisdom I keep quiet henceforth while you continue your persecution.

Thank you

You are not God so do more worse things I am still expecting

I thought you can do more. Quite a pity, downvote is the best you can do??

El inicio de una gran saga, de las mejores que he visto por su historia, relación y continuidad. Lo mejor de todo para mí, es que la gran mayoría de actores estuvieron desde el inicio hasta el final, prácticamente desarrollaron mucho de su carrera bajo el castillo de hogwarts.

Hasta ahora, sigue siendo una de mis películas favoritas de todos los tiempos
