19 Thoughts I Had While Rewatching "Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone"

I don't remember Harry, Ron, and Hermione being THIS freaking adorable.

Hi everyone! My name is Abby and I'm a massive Harry Potter fan. Anyone who doesn't like Harry Potter is just lying to themself.

I have to admit that it's been a while since I've watched all of the movies. But what better time to binge all of them than in quarantine? So, without further ado, I'll be sharing some of my highly insightful thoughts on the first movie.

1. Let me get this straight: I know Dudley is the worst, but, lowkey, his priorities are in order; he loves gifts and food, and remember when he stole Harry's birthday cake? Yep, I'd do the same thing.

2. This is the most bothersome scene in the entire movie. WHY THE HELL doesn't Harry just pick up one of the thousand goddamn letters on the ground? No wonder he's not in Ravenclaw.

3. Also, why is Hermione not in Ravenclaw? Shouldn't the smartest character be in the smartest house?

4. I will say this a million times, but THEY ARE ALL JUST SO CUTE. That's basically the best part of the movie.

5. Their friendship is so sweet, and they have so much chemistry already (even though Harry is prematurely third-wheeling).

6. Draco and Harry's little flying duel is EVERYTHING. And when all the Gryffindors run to Harry once he catches Neville's ball? It's just so heartwarming.

7. This is undoubtedly the best line of the movie. Draco just got roasted SO HARD.

8. And this line for sure makes the top five best roasts of the entire Harry Potter franchise. Leave it to Hermione to spit those facts.

9. Quidditch games look like SO MUCH FUN to watch. I would definitely be terrible at playing it (it looks nauseating AF), but I think cheering in the crowd would be so hype.

10. Harry is so sassy, and I hadn't noticed it until now. Just look at him rolling his eyes dramatically over Hermione's perfectly normal question.

11. Hogwarts is dangerous as fuck. You're telling me they just have random beasts wandering around? It seems like there's always something dangerous going on.

12. And on that note, why don't they just put security cameras in the building? That would make it a whole lot easier to discover who's acting shady.

13. Real talk: this movie is confusing. I'm trying to follow the plot, but it just doesn't make a lot of sense, even to me, an adult.

14. Ron and Harry would be dead so quickly if Hermione wasn’t with them. She saves them a million times and they barely even thank her. RESPECT.

15. The plot twist of Quirrell being Voldemort is SO immaculate. Like, holy shit, who could have predicted that?!

16. Harry is such a beast. When I was 11 I spent my free time on Club Penguin and Webkinz. Meanwhile, he’s busy fighting the most powerful dark wizard of all time. Ok then.


18. As a Ravenpuff, I'm bitter that my houses came in third and fourth. I do have to say, though, that Gryffindor winning is such a fun moment.

19. Finally, I have to say this: I've got a bone to pick with the ending. You're telling me Harry has to just go back to being tortured at Dudley's? What kind of ending is that?!

Anyway, overall, the movie is a blast and the characters are especially adorable. I'm pumped to continue watching the rest of the series.
