There are always many parts in a movie which we watch again and again. Even I watch this movie for some specific parts which include
- the train
- sorting hat
- charms class
- fighting the troll
- forbidden forest
- getting past fluffy
- confronting voldemort
- ending ceremony
Which parts you like the most in this movie?

    Honestly I don't watch the movie for more than one time, I find most of the movies are insults to the book. Since you are talking about the first movie which falls on the crappy movie definition, I find no notable scene there.

    very true.. the 1st movie had not half the book and the director seemed to edit the story and change the story line to his whims and fancies...
  • whitemomowhitemomo Posts: 47
    Well the directors always change the story but the the first one is really bad :)
  • abineshabinesh Posts: 84
    hmm .. if i had to mention some scene worth watching more than once then it is the climax... confronting voldemort... and the scene that i fast forward is fighting the troll...
  • whitemomowhitemomo Posts: 47
    If I am not mistaken the scene where Hermione finished the potion obstacle is not filmed right?
  • abineshabinesh Posts: 84
    yeah.. thats correct !! its not filmed right...
  • the potion scene conundrum thing isn't filmed at all
  • I loved the train part! I would watch it again and again.

    MY FAVORITE SCENE IS THE CHESS SCENE.I DONT KNOW WHY I LIKE THAT SCENE SO MUCH.

    I like the same parts of the 1st one as qaswer does the books have more detail so there better but that's why they have split the deathly hallows into 2 parts so they can put more detail from the books into the film because it's the last one ;-)

    I always watched the scene with the troll and the Quidditch match when i was a kid lol I think the thing that stand out the most in the first film is the music and the emotion of Hogwarts and how magical the world is

    My favorite scene is when Harry walks up to the Mirror of Erised and sees his mom and dad, but it's not just the scene, but the music to go with it. JW isn't my favorite composer, but some of the pieces he made with these 3 films just wow me so much.

    I think it works so well because it has that soft and emotional tone, it doesn't try and make a huge thing that Harry's parents are in front of him if you know what I mean lol

    Yeah, I know what you mean. That music is right up there with A Window to the Past as my favorite.

    The chess scene is my absolute favorite scene from SS.

    But I also like the first scene when baby Harry gets left on the Dursley's step.
    The Mirror of Erised when Harry sees his parents.
    Detention in the Forest.
    The end when DD awards the last few points to the trio and Neville and the final scene when Harry says "I'm not going home. Not really."

    Detention in the Forest.
    Truly a classic, iconic scene.

    LOL, are you guys trolling? Because the first movie sticks closest to the book...
    Look at the date of their posts.

    When Dudley walked in on his mom getting changed and Hagrid got caught looking. The look on Aunt P's face was soooo funny.

    My favorite scenes are most likely the Journey from Platform 9 and 3/4 and the first Quidditch match. Pure magic when I first saw them.

    :-? does this thread need to be closed? what the hell is going on? Who is spamming people,s profiles
  • NickNick Posts: 20,654 ✭✭✭✭✭
    ok just asking anyways my favorite scene in philosphers stone would be when we get our first look at hogwarts while there crossing the lake. it was then that i was truly hooked.
  • aaronaaron Posts: 20,950 mod
    Really? Never better? I thought that was the cheesiest part in the entire film.

    -Ollivanders Wand Shop
    “The wand chooses the wizard, Mr. Potter. It's not always clear why.
    But I think it is clear that we can expect great things from you.
    After all, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named did great things. Terrible! Yes. But great. "

    -Hogwarts; Crossing the lake.
    Magic!

    - The Mirror of Erised
    This whole scene just shatters me.
    I have recently re-read The Philosopher's Stone and I think they really, truly captured the sense of loss and desperation you feel from Harry in the book.

    "The Potters smiled and waved at Harry and he stared hungrily back at them, his hands pressed flat against the glass as though he was hoping to fall right through it and reach them. He had a powerful kind of ache inside him, half joy, half terrible sadness."

    Urgh, just leave me to my tears. :p

    Being really young when i first watched the film I'm a bit biased as it's part of my childhood and blah, blah, blah.
    But i think the whole film, even with it's faults, was made rather/really well. It's a great adaptation.
    being human is exhausting so i’ll be an owl

    The sorting hat scene is fantastic because of the ramifications related to the Horcrux living inside Harry which is what confuses the Sorting Hat. "Difficult, very difficult..."

    Why is it such a crime to bump old threads?

    Its a rule.

    So where is this rule stated?
  • AbhishekAbhishek Posts: 4,231 ✭✭✭✭
    The thing you quoted is the TOS of Vanilla Forums, which is all-encompassing. The "rule" I am talking about are the informal points which all the members and moderators acknowledge and agree upon and have been advised to follow by the admins.

    And I dont know whether you have checked the closed thread named "[email protected]'S PODCAST", but in there Fury/Vance , who is a Moderator clearly wrote these:

    1)"This is exactly why we are so against bumping old topics."

    2)"Your first post wasn't irony. It was bumping an old thread that didn't need to be bumped. You're a mod, right. You should know we DO NOT BUMP OLD DEAD THREADS!

    Or should we change that right now? Free reign?"
    I hope this makes it clear.
    :)
  • PumpkinjuicePumpkinjuice Posts: 2,317 ✭✭✭✭✭
    No, I don't check every thread on here. In my opinion all members should be informed about the rules.
  • AbhishekAbhishek Posts: 4,231 ✭✭✭✭
    I am with you mate. :)
  • RichardRichard Posts: 48,700 mod
    Uh, Fury is NOT a moderator. LMAO!
  • AbhishekAbhishek Posts: 4,231 ✭✭✭✭
    :))
    Well anyways, whatever Fury said is correct though. :)
  • aaronaaron Posts: 20,950 mod
    I don't think there was ever a rule.
