Harry Potter and the Prizoner of Azkaban
Posted 31 May 2004 - 07:44 PM
Now this isn't going to be a very long review beacuse I'm not very good at reviewing. The film starts with Harry Potter accidentally 'blowing up' Aunt Marge like a big balloon, which is very funny. Harry then gets picked up by the Knight Bus (the big purple bus), but I wont reveal much more of the story.
The Dementors were very good, and very scary (well, scary for little kids). This film is far darker than the other two, wich makes it better IMO. The story starts to get very clever at the end.
One annoying thing for me though was a woman behind me who laughed at anything that was even remotely funny (and some things that weren't even funny or suposed to be funny), really really loudly, she was the most annoying person who I have ever been in the cinema with! But this hasn't got anything to do with the film, so I'll shut up.
Overall, a very good film - 8/10

I have read all the books and I must say that out of the 5 I think this is my favourite. I plan to see it on friday and from the trailers I have seen it looks great!

If I remember correctly crisps is the word for the UK who are always doing things differently from others.
Chips is chips in the us, which is easier ;)

I liked the film overall, the directing was much better and it was (as Sam said) much darker, and better in my opinion, than the first 2.
The plot worked well and the acting was much better but the thing that really annoyed me was that they missed too much out of the book. They may have been just small details that don't really move the plot on but as I have read all the books and with this being my favourite, I think it would have worked much better, for me anyway. Another thing that confused me is that Hagrids hut and the whomping willow seemed to have moved location from the first 2 films. Did anybody else who's seen it realise that?
I loved the knight bus scene and the little comedy bits between Ron and Hermione. But that ending was... (n) Is that the best they could do?
Filming for the next one, The Goblet of Fire, starts in July so it will be a couple of years. I can't wait though!!

And I agree that it was a great film, but it could have been better.

very good movie, i totally agree that its much darker than the first ones...
the dementors were so cool, first i thought "oh, nazgul!", but after a few seconds you can see that they tried to make them looking different and they made it good.... yes, they ARE scary... ;)
i realised the hut-thing too.... but all the terrain around hogwards looks a little bit more detailed and more realistic, they made a real landscape (in the previous movies i had the impressions that hogwards was somehow "out of space")... i hope, they won't change the surrounding in the next movies anymore....
oh and the bus drive.... yeah, it was sooo funny!!! one of the best scenes of the whole film.... :D
the last minutes were a little bit complex and somehow confusing, especially for the younger audience... but maybe i thought this because i drunk some beer before entering the cinema... ;)
