Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
From the sets to the story to the whole tone of the film, this first Potter film is an almost literal adaptation of J.K. Rowling's beloved children's book.

Film Review  November 16, 2001, by Marc Savlov
"...Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith, John Cleese, Ian Hart, Richard Harris, Robbie Coltrane, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Tom Felton. At two and a half hours, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone runs a full hour longer than the standard kid-film length..."

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
The second year at the Hogwarts is better than the first, but still a bit sophomoric.
starstarstar
Film Review  November 15, 2002, by Kimberley Jones
"...Each of the books is centered around British mop-top Harry Potter, an orphaned wizard-in-training who studies at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, along with best friends Ron Weasley (Grint) and Hermione Granger (Watson). Helmer Chris Columbus already proved with last year's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone that he could do a serviceable job with the material..."

Dark Side of the Potterverse
Brad Neely's 'Wizard People, Dear Readers' and the volatility of artistic alchemy
Screens Story  July 23, 2004, by Spencer Parsons
"...But even when the only cash trading hands goes to the proper copyright holders, we still insist on pitching a legalistic fit over the provenance of the source material appropriated in something new. Case in point: There's an American artist working the counter at Toy Joy, responsible for making the other great Harry Potter movie of the summer – Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone played with an alternate narration track and retitled Wizard People, Dear Readers – but the quality of the work gets rather less ink than the tedious question of whether the damn thing's breaking a law...."

Harry Backlash
A brief survey of the inevitable, yet extremely varied, Harry Potter backlash sites on the Web
Screens Story  November 30, 2001, by Jennie Kennedy
"...Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone has been in theatres for barely two weeks, and has already shattered box-office records ($93 million the first weekend alone) faster than a Jelly-Legs Jinx will give you wobbly legs. But no class at Hogwarts prepared the young British wizard for the inevitable, yet extremely varied, backlash on the Web:..."

The Best American Short Stories of the Century
Books Story  June 24, 1999
"...Eleven-year-old Harry Potter debuted in Harry Potter & the Sorcerer's Stone (titled The Philosopher's Stone in the U.K., where I suppose that title conjures up images more romantic than Intro to Philo 101 courses). Since then the magical lad with the hideous step-family (the Dursleys) has become an international publishing phenomenon, winning awards and camping out on bestseller lists...."

Expect a preview of Tia Carrera's fifth album, The Quintessential, due in October on Small Stone Recordings..."

Coach's Corner
Coach, to his own great surprise, has become a huge Harry Potter fan. Quiddich being in the off-season, however, let's take a brief look at baseball…
Columns  August 18, 2000, by Andy "Coach" Cotton
"...If you plied the fields of our fair land -- over hill and over dale, north, south, east, and west -- searching out to the farthest reaches of the forbidding Himalayas and calling all the ships at sea, you'd not find a less likely devotee to the Cult of Harry Potter than the old Coach. What would you imagine the demographic for the young wizard's readers to be? Judging from the inordinate number of fifth-grade girls I've seen laying against ratty backpacks in airports from Los Angeles to Boston, totally immersed in The Sorcerer's Stone, I'd say female, and with the age skewed closer to 5 than 50..."

Warner Bros.: Avada Kedavra, Healy
'Wizard People, Dear Readers,' Brad Neely's wonderfully wacked-out homage to 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone,' is no more
Screens Story  April 1, 2005, by Spencer Parsons
"...Wizard People basically consists of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone played in its entirety with the original sound muted to make room for Neely's dizzy narration laying bare the film's adult subtexts, fudging character names and hallucinating rampant alcoholism at Hogwarts (for an interview with Neely during his creation's live-show salad days, see "Dark Side of the Potterverse: Brad Neely's Wizard People, Dear Reader and the Volatility of Artistic Alchemy," July 23, 2004). Early in March, the studio contacted venues in Boston and New York, as well as our own Alamo Drafthouse, to demand cancellation of planned screenings unless the film was played as originally intended..."

Harry Potter's Pot of Gold

"...Rowling, author of the wildly popular Harry Potter series, whose two Harry Potter books that have been released in the U.S. (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone) top the PW children's fiction bestsellers list, respectively, in a neat reversal of the Harry Potter titles selling well at Toad Hall..."
