The Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone are a small movie that revolves around Harry's first interaction with the mystical world of magic. And also a famous one! It tells the story of how Harry Potter was introduced to the magic world in the fictional school called Hogwarts in the first book. It is very hard to watch this movie without having at least a little knowledge about Harry Potter.

Harry's first interaction with the wizards happens during the summer when he has to help his friend Ron and his friends get ready for their school's Quidditch match. Ron asks Harry if he can take a tour to see the place, and for Harry to come back on the following day. In the film, Harry learns that the school is the famous Hogwarts and that he has been sent there to learn how to use the magical powers. Harry decides to do so, but it is not easy to learn since there are many obstacles in his way. On the other hand, Harry soon discovers that he must survive several "giant killer" games if he wants to continue his studies.

During the second part of the movie, we can clearly see that Harry has been referred to as "the star of the show" which may be a reference to his fame. Harry also has to solve the case of his parents' death and the mysterious disappearance of his godfather Sirius Black. The story becomes more interesting when we get to learn that he also has to face the challenges that the wizarding world can offer.

In the movie, the story revolves around Harry's relationship with a famous magizoologist called Professor McGonagall who was known to help Harry a lot while he was still a student. McGonagall thinks that she will be able to teach Harry more about the magic secrets once he became an adult, but her offer is rejected by Harry, who only cares about his education.

There are also some important scenes where Harry is given a glimpse of his future. By the time the movie reaches the last part, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone give us a clear picture of what his life would be like in his later years. The audience is now able to understand why Harry ended up in a situation that is very similar to his previous lives.

The plot of the movie is also based on the mysterious book called "The Philosopher's Stone" by the French author J.K. Rowling. It is a story about a boy who was left by his parents and ends up joining the school of wizardry, where he finds a way to overcome the magical danger. At the end of the movie, we also learn how the wizard is attracted to him.

Movie fans have two reactions when they watch the movie. The first one is to think about the reasons why the Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone became a successful movie, while the other reaction is to imagine the movie as an educational tool.

The movie has been rated "R" (some scenes may be a little violent) but the real role of the professor McGonagall may not be well known, because most people are not familiar with the book that the movie is based on. So if you haven't read the book yet, you should just find a book store near you and read it, because you might be surprised to find out what exactly it is that the movie gives its audience.
