I went to see Harry Potter at the weekend. What I want to know is why anyone bothers passing the ball ... erm ... quaffle. Let me compare it to the game of rugby. You pass the ball there because you might be tackled. Now think of the game of rugby on motorcycles - is there going to be a tackle there that doesn't take both players out of the game? I doubt it. So tackling's pointless. And what are the odds of being tackled anyway? At the speeds they were going, practically zero.

While I'm randomly critisising, why didn't they have to go past a troll to get the Philosopher's Stone? It would have taken about fiveteen seconds extra, and we could have had the 'I've always had an affinity with trolls' line which was about half the point of one of the previous scenes.

And while we're at it, the mirror of Esired was too small and the Hogwarts should have had stone staircases rather than those pathetic wooden ones. But those are just because I visualised it differently.

All in all, a good film. I suspect I'll enjoy LOTR better, though.
