Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

I really want to like the Harry Potter movies, but the potential just can?t make up for their overall suckiness. Take Draco Malfoy. He?s evil, we get it. But he?s overwhelmingly, ridiculously, farcically evil, the kind of evil that bores but makes me want to smack the director, the sad Chris Columbus. But that would be ok by itself, but the acting is so bad that all of Malfoy?s sneering and spitting is painful to watch.
