      Let the imagination fly freely and let the creativity flow endlessly, a classic masterpiece

      I didn't know much about the seven Harry Potter books. I was fortunate enough to go to the only movie theater in the town when the first movie was released. I didn't expect this memory to be ten years. Hagrid knocked on a few bricks on one wall, and they automatically changed direction one by one, and an alley appeared before him. At that time, his surprise was as hard to hide as the light in Harry's eyes. Including getting into platform nine and three-quarters, taking the train to Hogwarts,...

      Relive Your Childhood Series

      The first time I watched Harry Potter when I was a child was the same year that Harry entered school. At that time, I waited every day for the owl to send me an admission notice. I waited year after year, from the age of 11 to the age of 18, and I was always suspicious in the middle. Is it because my house has anti-theft windows so owls can't fly in, or Hogwarts doesn't accept international students, at least not Chinese people...anyway, I'm skeptical and believe that in the Muggle world...

      See why so many people want to go to Hogwarts

      23 now, but have probably been listening to the series for 10 years, finally watched the first one today.

      If I watched this movie 10 years ago, I would have liked it very much. I have to say that these foreign films will create a magical world for people, whether it is Disney, Transformers, Avengers, Pirates of the Caribbean, if When I was a kid, I would definitely want to be invited to Hogwarts for a magical journey.

      Favorite school, no one

      That's great, this is a sign that only children have... "Harry Potter" has the ability to bring people back to childhood, not only that, but they will choose to believe everything presented on the screen, as if they are by their side, Adventure together, experience novelty together. As we all know, the propositions of the magical world are grand and abstract. Before that, there were many deliberate shapings, but most of them were gimmicky, and it was difficult to calm down and appreciate the...

      me and my fairy tale world

      The movie is OK, the beginning of the wizarding world. Watching a movie is very painful, in the Dragon Dream Dynamic Hall, watching a movie, swaying and blowing blindly; the three girls in front sit together, watch mobile phones from beginning to end, play videos, shoot, record, chat, and collect almost all the most annoying behaviors, Reminders...

      At that time, Hermione, Ron and little Harry were so cute, even if it was a story of fighting demons, it was so beautiful and bright, maybe this was the best memory that I had to give up when I grew up-because it was as long as If you have friends and have self-confidence, no matter when you are not good. . . / The first time I went to the cinema after the epidemic was the remake of Ha 1. Although the special effects and so on are not as amazing as they were in the past, and the plot is still...

    Shooting process

    Before the film was officially filmed, Spielberg had intended to direct the film, but because Spielberg planned to use Hayley Joe Osment to play Harry Potter, the producer insisted on finding a British boy. The actor came to play Harry, and the two sides couldn't agree, so Spielberg had to break up with the film. So the producer launched another director selection, kicked out famous directors such as Tim Robbins, Wolfgang Peterson, and...
