HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER'S STONE was a good book. It was filled with interesting characters, a fantastical setting, and some great dialog. However, much of the book was setting up the world in which …

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Gene Wilder is one of my favorite comedians. It seems to take so little effort to make us all laugh at his antics. He plays an excellent Wonka that has a walking cain even more deadlier than the Riddler's. …
