10 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone Movie Reviews That’ll Piss Fans Off
The series has been over for years — apart from the spin-off that's currently in the works, obvs — but that hasn't stopped fans of Harry Potter from showing their dedication time after time. (Note the stunning and creative HP-themed tattoos.) So we're sure that, even though the J.K. Rowling book series turned megawatt movie franchise is long over, Potterheads will be beyond pissed when they read the following bad film reviews of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone:
"Yet for all its faithfulness to the concrete details of the book, the film is missing something when it comes to capturing the most important detail of all: its sense of magic."
"It's way too long, there's no story, no logic, no villain, all the supporting characters are more interesting than Potter, and I learned nothing about being a wizard."

"This film is capable of a certain brand of magic: it may turn the faithful into Muggles."
"Rarely has a movie seemed more beholden to its roots, or required so much outside help to give it its spark."
—Flipside Movie Emporium
"Emotionally, this Harry Potter is just as inert as the popcorn-munching masses watching him."
"Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is a film with no personality of its own, despite being filled with many unforgettable personalities."
"Its efforts to set itself above the bar are rather admirable, if not quite charming or endearing in their eventual failures."
