1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001)
Next to “Lord of the Rings,” the Harry Potter series has to be the most successful screen adaptation of a series of novels ever. Based on the book by J.K Rowling, “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” is the first book and the first film in the franchise.
Director Chris Columbus does a fantastic job of breathing life into the script. From the train ride to Hogwarts, to a “Quidditch” battle, Columbus orchestrates the scenes perfectly, without diluting the story that’s typical of many screen adaptations.
Daniel Radcliffe stars as the cult hero, and nemesis of “He who shall not be named.” The young actor grew up on screen playing Harry, so we see him turn from a schoolboy into a young man as the movies progress through the franchise.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is a movie the entire family will enjoy, even if you’re not into the kid’s stuff.
