    It seems Ron's review of Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone is getting a lot of attention.
    From Today's NY Daily News:
    EARLY BIRD SAYS 'HARRY' IS MAGIC.
    What is apparently the first review of the filmed adaption of J.K Rowlngs 'Harry Potter And The Sorcerers Stone' has appeared on the internet..and it' a rave!
    "On a scale of 1 to 5, I give this film a 5," writes Ronald Epstein, an acknowledged amateur critic who somehow gains access to early screenings of final cuts and writes about them on http://www.hometheaterforum.com.

    Harry Knowles ("Ain't It Cool News") also linked to Ron's review as the first to appear on the net.
    Congrats, Ron, you scooped 'em all!!

    Man, I should have asked for your autograph when it was free. Don't forget us on you meteoric rise to stardom.
    Also, WTG. You've definitely represented the HTF in the best possible way.

    imdb.com also makes note of Ron's reveiew in one of their news pieces today. On a different note - not that it matters much - I was checking the talkbacks at aintitcool and Ron was not being treated so nicely there. Oh well, what can you expect right?

    quote: That's a given. Maybe the HTF can round up a posse JAY AND SILENT BOB style and go door to door roughing up the 14 year olds who post over there.[/quote]

    The sound you are now hearing is the collective patting of Ron's back...Ron (and the HTF) got game!

    Guys,
    I am really taken back by this. Thank You.
    I had no idea that I was in the NY DAILY NEWS,
    that is, until I got home and saw email from
    Vince Maskeeper and Robert Crawford alerting
    me to this thread.
    I went out and bought two papers.
    Seems that the British Sun also posted bits
    of my review. In addition, I see my name all
    over the web (which is not uncommon, but at least,
    it's words of praise).
    If this much coverage is being given to our
    forum now, just wait till next month. I am
    anticipating that I can nab the first review of
    another MAJOR holiday theatrical title that will
    run rings around Harry Potter.

    "Rings" around Harry Potter. Good one Ron. However in the end, I beleve Harry will prevail and be the true Lord of the cinema. [​IMG]
