Trivia

  • (At around two hours and twenty-five minutes) When Lucius Malfoy tries to curse Harry at the end, he mutters "Avada..." As mentioned in the fourth book, this is the beginning of an Unforgivable Curse named "Avada Kedavra", or the killing curse. This rather makes it look like Malfoy is stupid enough to actually try to kill a child in the middle of a school, chock full of students and teachers, with no means of escaping. But as Jason Isaacs has explained in several interviews, the novel mentioned no specific spell for him to use and, since he had just been reading the fourth book at the time, this was the only curse he could remember. So, as it turns out, Dobby saved Harry's life in this scene.

Love that they showed these in theatres all these years later IMAX makes all the difference!

Brimming with invention and new ideas, and its Hogwarts School seems to expand and deepen before our very eyes into a world large enough to conceal unguessable secrets -- What a glorious movie.

The Chamber of Secrets -- darker, scarier and somewhat better than Sorcerer's Stone.

Moves the franchise even closer to Indiana Jones territory, with bloodcurdling action scenes and a passel of climactic computer-generated slime beasties unparalleled in their potential ability to -- I'm quoting from both book and film here -- '' rip, tear, rend, kill. ''
