I was among the hundreds of thousands — or probably millions — of Harry Potter fans in the Philippines that trooped to the movie houses to watch “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” on its first showing day last Wednesday, November 21. The theater I went in was jam-packed. Good thing I went to see the movie alone; I did not have to worry about looking for two or three vacant seats. I was lucky enough to get a seat from where I had a good view of the movie screen. The movie was loyal to the book. It was really great seeing it as if you are reading it directly from the book. The members of the cast were convincing. They performed so well. Daniel didn’t seem to act at all. It’s like he’s just playing his own character. Hmmm, must stop here — I am not really a movie reviewer, you know. To those who haven’t seen the movie yet, what are you waiting for?
