finneg23’s review published on Letterboxd:
These five stars are not for J.K. Rowling.
They are for Cuarón and his thoughtful blend of youthful charm and adolescent thrill.
They are for Rupert Grint and how ‘lived in’ the comedic nature of Ron Weasley feels.
They are for Emma Watson’s commitment to always carrying Hermoine Granger’s preoccupation—a component of a performance that is highly technical and easily scrutinized.
They are for a badass CGI design team and gnarly makeup work.
