Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone: Movie Chat

A little while ago, I wrote a post telling you all about the Harry Potter re read and re watch I’m doing with a group of online friends.Harry Potter Re Read

Last weekend, we watched the first movie together! For those of you who couldn’t be there (or who didn’t know this was going on!), here’s what you missed…

  1. Confusion from the newbies. There were a few of us who hadn’t read the books until now, or hadn’t finished the series, or hadn’t seen the movies before. There’s nothing sweeter than seeing people experience the movies for the first time! I remember my first time (oo-er), but it was so many years ago… This included tweets like:

Among others. Things that seem like second nature to you and I Potter nerds. 

2. Foreshadowing HOLY HELL. I’ll just leave this here for those of you who know what I was talking about…

3. Aww, the itty bitty kiddos! Honestly, at least the first half hour of the movie was us going “Look at him! Look at her!” Seriously, how were they so small?? Harry Potter cast

4. A little bit of criticism: 

When I first saw this movie in the theatre the flying scenes seriously made me so nervous. That part of the world just no. #2016HPreread

5. Boys boys boys (with a couple of girls). As soon as Quidditch happened, we started reminiscing over how madly in love we were with Oliver Wood. Wasn’t that guy sexy as heck?? I think it was the smirk combined with the accent that made him perfect… From there, there was a fight to the death for everyone else we wanted dibs on. I ended up with James, Fred, and George (yussss!). I think everyone has been taken by this point – except for maybe Flitwick… This conversation is still going on today, because there are so many perfect characters in this book! Luckily there were only two of us interested in the girls, so we have our pick of basically whoever we want! With two drunk girls in the group, it made the dibsing even more hilariousOliver Wood

So, basically, it was a lot of fun! I can’t wait to watch the next movie in February! These girls are awesome, and they’re making my however-many-re-read stand out more than a lot of the other ones. So YAY YOU GUYS ❤

If you want to join, just let me know! We’re definitely up for welcoming some newbies to the group, even if you only want to watch, or only read, or only go from book five. Whatever it is, we want you with us! Just let me know and I’ll add you to the Twitter group. Oh, and if you want to see what else you missed, just check out #2016HPreread



I was a book blogger for a while, and I now blog about every little thing in life I can think of. Bear with me while I try all these new posts out... I'm a New Zealand teen who gets angry about the world (but not angry enough for tumblr). I like to capture the world through photos and words, and read in all the moments in nz-squadbetween. I have an overwhelming desire to see every corner of the world I possibly can, and hug the people I love in all those corners. I can't do make up to save myself, and you're more likely to find me buying matching stationary than matching clothes. My nerd hobbies include a new found love of the Avengers, reading YA, watching Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, and every vlogger I can find, and being the last person on the music bandwagons. I have big plans for the rest of my life, including university, teaching, travelling, and having an army of puppies. I plan to blog every second of it!

      1. Hey is there a way so that my contacts won’t be able to get my Twitter (cos I’m anonymous) because when I was signing up it said ‘here’s some people you could follow’ and it had some of my contacts…
