I really enjoyed Harry Potter and the COS. Yes, some parts were cut out, but they were unneccissary or unimportant. I am a person who can not stand when a movie about a book misses a lot of the important stuff, like Harry Potter 3 and 5 (which i fell asleep during the movie because it was a waste of time). Columbus is such an excellent director and really makes you feel like you are in Hogwarts, unlike the 3rd, 4th, and 5th films of this saga. I would really like to see him come back to direct films and make them as good as this film. Chamber of Secrets is a must get for all adventurous fans.
