Like any good boyfriend, I make it a point to immerse myself in the interests of my significant other. That’s why I didn’t blink when my wife-to-be asked me to pick up Travelers Tales’ LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 for the Xbox 360. Well, actually I did blink…and I put off her request for few days.

To those of you that say the two films should be judged independently of one another, I say there is no way to dissever the two. You don’t “re-imagine” a film and hope that it stands as on its own. If you want to create something that stands on its own, you create something new.
