Thread Name: BS: Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets film
Subject: RE: BS: Harry Potter & the C of S
Eulogizing Hagrid? I don't think so. His scenes chimed with the book, as I recall it. I thought the Weasleys were just right, and I love the house. One thing that got to both me and my kids was how everybody stopped and brought attention to Harry at the school's end feast. The way it was handled there is a surefire way to saddle a kid with a "teacher's pet" reputation among any bunch of normal kids, magical or muggle. We speculated on the likelihood of him getting beat up on the playground sometime, from that scene alone. Nothing like driving home in the evening with a trio of bloodthirsty humorists..
