My mother took me to watch Harry Potter at the cinema for the first time. Though I enjoyed the film, I already knew what happened, having previously enjoyed the books.   When Harry and his friends are confronted by devil's snare, a three-headed dog, or a double-headed murderous villain, I don't despair or worry for them.
