Title: Harry Potter 3 - The Prisoner of Azkaban
Post by: nathie on August 20, 2003, 06:42:37 pm

Please discuss the HP3 movie here. Any book discussion goes in the Book board. Thanks!
-MysteriousMrWood


A friend of mine sent me some pics of HP3 and i still dont know which scene could be this from the books:


Anyone know?

Plus.. there's this pic of the Shrieking Shack:


This is the first time I saw the actor who plays Sirius and well.. I'm so dissapointed!!!!! Sirius should be hot!!! and so Lupin... *shakes head* this is not fair... *sighs* anyway i'll see the movie

Yeap.. definitely Sirius should be a good-looking man.. that's how they describe him in OotP!!!! (well, they mention how he looked when he was young..) :-\

Post by: kaleb on August 20, 2003, 06:49:16 pm

yeh they definitely make the adults older than they should be. i mean snape, siruis and lupin are all the same age, right? thats about 40? the aptly named gary *oldman* and alan rickman are both pushing 60! i reckon alan rickman can get away with it though, he was born to play snape.

Well, I mean, I'm sure Sirius can look better than that, what do you expect from someone who's just escaped Azkaban and is living on rats? Not Brad Pitt I hope. ;) Not that I think Gary Oldman's hot or anything, but I've seen him look way better than that photo from the Shrieking Shack.

And Lupin.....well, I didn't expect him to be good-looking.

She had slapped Malfoy across the face with all the strength she could muster... Hermione pulled out her wand. Malfoy stepped backward.

I think it's somewhere near the end since Hermione's in her Muggle attire, I'm guessing it's when all the chaos happens. :)

To tell you the truth, I just got that from my friend's quote on our website, I don't know what chapter it's on. :P Too lazy to run upstairs and go find it in my book.

Tom did grow up fast, then again, he's a few years older than everyone isn't he? He's 15/16 or something like that.

Title: Re:HP 3

Hmm.. I've never seen that first picture before! Heh. Malfoy looks positively terrified. Mwahaha.

And yeah, I was a bit disappointed by the actors for Sirius, Lupin, etc at first. But I decided I'll leave the real judging go until I see how they act their parts out in the movie.. then we shall see. Plus, that's only one picture afterall.. perhaps it's just a bad one?

Huh, that actually looks pretty good. Better than the first two, anyway. Sorcerer's Stone and Chamber of Secrets were rather large disappointments for me, but this one looks promising! Thanks for posting :)

Post by: LunaHobbit on November 13, 2003, 12:10:03 pm

i had the chance to record it on my vcr cuz they showed the complete trailer on tv in a channel from Spain. I think it was faboulous. I loved the whole thing, music, picture, scenario. cool cool! :D they look so grown up.

Post by: newfoundglory on November 13, 2003, 12:25:25 pm

GAH!! I have a slowass modem so I cant download it here at work! Now i have to wait allll day to see it.

This was my favorite book of the series so far as well, Vadas. :D

Title: Re:PoA trailer up
Post by: Raiwen on November 13, 2003, 12:33:20 pm

My two friends love HP (I hate it) so I'll have to go see this film with them. Looks way better than the first two anyway.

Ooohh, I must go download!! PoA's my fave too -- I hope they don't screw it up!!
Okay, watching trailer....
Thanks Vadas! ;D

I think Sirius looks pretty good... I'll have to see more of Lupin though, at the moment he doesn't really fit my minds-eye :P But, it's all good.

The trailers for the first two movies were good too though, remember...

Snape's boggart looks hilarious! He's (Snape) really growing on me...

Title: Re:PoA trailer up
Post by: newfoundglory on November 13, 2003, 05:35:33 pm

You guys are killin me here!! Only 3.5 hours till I am home and I can finally watch it!

Isnt Sirius being played by Gary Oldman?

Title: Re:PoA trailer up
Post by: VadasNightmaere on November 13, 2003, 09:11:21 pm

Yep, and I'm sure he'll do a wonderful job. He's a brilliant actor.


Title: Re:PoA trailer up
Post by: newfoundglory on November 13, 2003, 09:36:35 pm

*nods* He is absolutley brilliant. I love him, one of my faves for sure.

Title: Re:PoA trailer up

Yeah, he's standing behind Neville in the Snape-Boggart scene. very, very quick.

LoL, yeah, I wish they hadn't, but unless Sean and the rest of the cast are keeping a huge secret, they have officially cut him out. Sean posted about it in March, and Chris Rankin (Percy) has mentioned Sean being off the cast, and that it was a shame.

Title: No Oliver Wood in the third Harry Potter?!
Post by: Emiry on December 04, 2003, 12:54:02 am

Ok I have just heard a nasty rumor that Oliver Wood, played by Sean Biggerstaff, in the Harry Potter movies will not be a part in the third movie to be released in June. Does anyone know if this is true? I hope not I think it would be really stupid not to have him in it, I mean he is such a big character in the third one! I am getting mad. Please let me know if anyone can kill this vile beast of a rumor. ???

Title: Re:Harry Potter 3 Trailer
Post by: brissybaggins on December 04, 2003, 01:00:56 am

June 4th. New director, new dumbledorr, contract disputes, lengthy book. It all encorporated into this late date. :P

Title: Re:No Oliver Wood in the third Harry Potter?!
Post by: brissybaggins on December 04, 2003, 01:07:30 am

well, regardless if he is in the movie or not, the taping has wraped, so if he isn't, he isn't, if he is, he is. He doens't have a major role in the books, does he? and if he does that doesn't seem to stop any movie maker...

regards...

Title: Re:No Oliver Wood in the third Harry Potter?!
Post by: Emiry on December 04, 2003, 01:11:26 am

Yeah, I suppose. But I mean in the third book he does have a fairly big role with the team winning the quidditch cup and all, plus the whole thing with harry's firebolt. I didn't know they had finished shooting already that is really crappy that it is not coming out until June. I wish they would have released it in Nov like last year and the year before.

Title: Re:No Oliver Wood in the third Harry Potter?!
Post by: HerMajesty on December 04, 2003, 09:38:00 pm

LOL! Ah, yes, Olly's out as far as the third movie goes. In fact, Sean confirmed this in March of 2003. The producers just had to make some cuts as with all movies, and his character as one of them. Oliver will be CGI'd in, but unfortunately, no scenes of him crying or trying to drown himself in the showers will be there, I'd imagine.

It's okay, life moves on. ;D If you need your Sean fix, just visit his website [SeanBiggerstaff.com] or come post in the Sean Biggerstaff thread - http://always.ejwsites.net/YaBBSE/index.php?board=4;action=display;threadid=9919;start=1455 ;)

Title: Re:Harry Potter Trailer??
Post by: HobbitFancier on December 21, 2003, 08:22:50 pm

Both times I saw RotK, they played the new HP trailer. Yep yep. It was alright. Though, I've almost lost faith in the films; I really don't like how Sirius looks. Though, I do have to give them credit that he does look quite dog-like. Also, they've ruined Malfoy.. blah.

Oh well.

Title: I missed it
Post by: curious bout efans on December 31, 2003, 03:28:27 am

I didn't see it in the theater when I went to see ROTK but someone else said that they DID see it before ROTK, so maybe it just depends upon the theater at which you see the movie.

http://movies.yahoo.com/movies/feature/harrypotter.html

That link is if you want to see the preview on the internet, which I have seen before, but I wanted to see it on the big screen!

I don't think they've ruined Malfoy, and I think it looks awesome. I think Gary Oldman (Sirius) is going to be recognized a lot more now. Personally, he freaked me out as Mason Verger in Hannibal.

Title: Re:Harry Potter Trailer?
Post by: Loelle on December 31, 2003, 03:31:39 am

Gary Oldman rocks, I cannot say enough good things about the acting ability of this man. I saw the trailer both times I saw ROTK, and I think its going to be great. In my opinion, it was the best book. I would check out the website, you can download the trailer from it.

Title: Re:Harry Potter Trailer?
Post by: Menalie on December 31, 2003, 10:24:54 am

But I know harry is ;)

And is that ian mckellen as dumble dor? cause it sounds like it a bit.

wow! cant wait!

But I hated the last book, it was so depresing :'( and the fourth :'( the ending was like WOW

You mean this guy (http://www.konsolen-world.de/Berichte/bilder/Hannibal/Han2.jpg)? :-X I didn't realize that was he! Eeeek, well, I can definitely say he has acting skills, but I personally don't see him as Sirius. Not handsome enough. *shields self from the oncoming attacks*

But from what I've seen, the film looks really good....I can't wait to see it...

I havent read the books so 4give me for such ignorance...Is Sirius meant to be like the Dark Horse of th family?? How is he described in the book?
[/quote]

To whose family are you referring? Harry's? I don't believe Harry is directly related to Sirius Black (who, incidentally, kicks ass). I guess he could be seen as more of a "dark horse" to his own family...but then again, one must consider to whom he is related.

I don't want to spoil too much for those who haven't read anything. So...

***SPOILER ALERT DO NOT READ DO NOT READ***

WELL OKAY READING IS GOOD BUT NOT THIS NEXT PART IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!!!

Sirius is related to many different people, mostly dark wizards and witches. He is pureblood, and since this is such a small circle, he is related to the LeStranges and the Malfoys (among others). I believe he ran away from home as a teenager. His mom is a bit - is not very nice. He is described as bitter about his family. And gaunt...good lord, is he gaunt; every other word phrase seems to read: "Sirius' gaunt face looked at Harry...." Etc. Were you looking for something more specific? Let me know!

End transmission.

Hey thanks curious ;D that is kinda what I was looking for...although some one said earlier that they expected him to be alot more attractive, or he was supposed to be..does it say anything like that in the book or was it just personal opinion ?

Well, Sirius is supposed to be pretty good-looking when he is young, but after going to Azkaban, he is...well...gaunt. I mean, his hair is kinda scraggly and all that; but when he was younger, yes, he was quite the catch.

Death Eater is a term in the Harry Potter books. A "dark horse" is a general term used everyday (not just in Harry Potter) that means...well, the person you don't really notice or sometimes also means the person about whom you are ashamed. For example, in the unknown sense, Bill Clinton was referred to as the "dark horse candidate" because no one expected him to win.

Death Eater is...well...you know, if you've read the books.

I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOO excited for the movie! GAH! I don't know what I'll do until then. I know some people don't like them but I think they're awesome. I love me some Snape.

LOL
It *is* Gary Oldman -- that'd be why.

Mrs. Boyd: Yeah, agree to a certain extent. But there are some things, at least for me, that never change after I see the movie. I mean, since I've already formed my own image of it in my head while I was reading it, it doesn't change that much when I see the movie.

Title: Re:Harry Potter 3
Post by: HerMajesty on March 25, 2004, 08:52:06 pm

I'm so proud of myself in that I've avoided HP3 promos and articles like the plague. It's been tempting but I've managed not to see the trailer yet. I won't be seeing the third because I know I'll be sitting there going, "Nope, not in the book" and the whole movie, IMO, cheapens the book reading experience..it also makes me lazy - I haven't read the second and the first as much since the movies came out!

Title: Re:Harry Potter 3
Post by: Mirabelle on March 25, 2004, 10:35:16 pm

I was disappointed by the first two movies, so I'm hoping this third one will be good. I give Alfonso Cuaron the benefit of the doubt because
1. He's not Chris Columbus, who did a bad job, IMO.
2. See #1.
Though if it disappoints, BAH! on the Harry Potter movie franchise. I'm sticking with the books. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me, fool me thrice, and I go postal on your -bleep-.
The books are always infinitely better, and they never replace the images in my head, but I like to see how they're interpreted. I wouldn't see the third if Columbus had directed it.

Title: Re:Harry Potter 3
Post by: PHF1138 on March 26, 2004, 11:47:59 am

See, I'm just too addicted to movies to give them up, for better or for worse. (I did enjoy the first two films very much, but hear me out.)
Example: The Star Wars prequels. They sucked. BUT I still have to see the third one when it comes out. It's my duty as a fan, and even if I KNEW for a fact it wouldn't be that great, I still wouldn't be able to keep myself from seeing it. I just hafta.

I feel the same way...but I have to admit, I also enjoyed the movies. Not as brilliant as the books (they never are) but I enjoyed them and I am kind of a Harry Potter freak, so I take it in stride. Not to mention, Alan Rickman is Snape and I love him as Snape. That in itself is enough for me to watch the movies.

I gotta agree with that. CoS was, for me, an overall major disappointment. Its amazing that a book that interesting could be made into a movie that freakin' boring!! *ahem* having said that, I still am looking forward to PoA!

I find that my mental images of the characters haven't really changed even after seeing the movies -- and for that, i'm thankful. Sirius Black in my mind really looks nothing like Gary Oldman, and Hermione doesn't really resemble Emma Watson to me either. But Dan R is a pretty close match to what I imagined Harry to be -- maybe just a little skinnier.

I know not everyone agrees with me, and yes, there are parts in the movies where they "freely" interpret parts from the books, but who cares? It's still so cool to see it in movie format. I read the books beforehand so I already know what my initial imaginings are...the movie does not ruin that for me.

And...argh! Dementors! Hell yes! Oh, they look so damn awesome! Rah!

You might want to ask Jackie about that since she's more informed on the Cho stuff (she tried out, but didn't get accepted because they're bastards).

Dementors are going to be awesome. ;D

I think this movie is going to be LOADS better. The kids have had time to grow up and gain more experience, so I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt. Even Daniel Radcliffe might be able to show some emotion this time (he was a bit wooden, in my opinion). Ron is hilarious - so perfectly cast! Lupin looks great too, though I don't really know the actor that well.

Should be good! Less than two months now...

I'm glad you like him. Yes, I've watched Seven Years in Tibet a long time ago and I've also watched Dragonheart which left me horrified (I'm being honest). I don't know if it was because of the character he was playing in that movie or something. He had an annoying voice. :-\
Anyway, I was refering to Lupin's mustache since he's not supposed to have one, in the book he doesn't. And I just pray, that the werewolf is not portrayed as little furball (like Ozz inBuffy Vampire Slayer), since werewolves are actually supposed to be big and scary creatures.

Prisoner of Azkaban is definitely my favourite of HP' books. I LOVE Remus Lupin and can't wait to see him on screen. I think Gary Oldman will do a great job as Sirius, as Gary is a great acor, but I don't like Sirius very much (I was happy he died at the end of Order of Phoenix ;))

I think how Daniel got the part was by Chris Columbus randomly seeing him somewhere and saying, "That's Harry Potter!" I don't think he had any acting experience prior, he was picked solely on his resemblance to the character.

I'm pretty sure Daniel went to one of the casting calls they had at schools in England. He's been taking acting lessons. I admitt, he was pretty bad in the first one, but I thought all the kids were much better in the second.

We have to keep in mind these movies are aimed at kids, who don't care about the acting quality. It's just a plus when older people can enjoy them a bit too. It's not LOTR where you have trained actors making a movie aimed at adults and teens, who pay attention to acting abilities.

I'm still excited about seeing the movie, I have a count down clock on my desktop, 50 days :)

Are you kidding? I love the part where she smacks him! I have been waiting for this for so long! Muahahaha.

Seriously.

And I like Tom Felton's hair in this one, I don't know, he just does any hairstyle well. Except I dunno why he's so shy in real life...that's what I heard, at least. I forget where...I think in the tarp thread.

And yes, Alan Rickman can act! He almost makes the entire movie for me. Maggie Smith is the other half. Richard Harris was so damn good, I loved that man's acting! I hope this new guy can pull it off.

I think it's coming out some time in June/July time, after the PoA movie comes out.

Tom Felton looked so much more evil with his old hair style! Slicked back is the perfect villain and now he's all.. non-smooth...

Post by: curious bout efans on April 16, 2004, 03:21:47 pm

Well, isn't Malfoy supposed to look worse? Or maybe not, but I know he definitely gets less slick (not necessarily in terms of hair style, just in general) as the books go on.

Harry Potter 6 is most definitely not coming out this summer. Try next summer, 2005 in other words. If it even comes out that early. ::)

Yeah, there would definitely be some hype about it if it was coming out any time in the next 6 months! i hope there isn't another 3 year gap!

im praying that Gary Oldman can pull Sirius off cos hes my favourite character and i have to admit i was very disappointed when i first saw him as he looks nothing like i imagined him to be, but i'll give the guy a chance ;)

Daniel Radcliffe was in David Copperfield when he was about 9 or 10, i think that was the only acting experience he had before HP.

Last week I went surfing on the net and I read that HP 6 (the title will probably be "HP and the Green torch light") will be published in summer 2005. Then, on Friday, I went to the Bookfair of Bologna, which is one of the greatest children bookfair in the world, and I went to the Bloomsbury stand. I asked them when we will see HP 6, and they answered me they don't know. They said that "summer 2005" is just an Internet rumour. Anyway, I hope HP6 will be published as soon as possible, as I cannot wait again as I waited for Order of Phoenix!

We also have to remember, she popped the first four books out one right after the other, so she got a much deserved break. Personally, I'm dreading about book #6 coming out, because that means there's only one. Book. Left. But I can't wait either.

You can combine layers by going to layer>layer options and then clicking on "group with previous layer." Then open it in the browser window by clicking the internet explorer icon. When it opens, right click on the image, and choose "save as." It will automatically be a gif file.

Ads for the trailer, try updating Windows Media Player or QuickTime *both are free I believe) and then you might be able to play the trailers.

They are both awsome, I like the second one where snape slams the windows of the defense against the dark arts room. Cool stuff.

Good luck,

I am even a Mod in one of them, but oh my gosh, by now i have to confess that i am so fed up with pics! I've had it now!! I can't stand seeing pics and stills and caps and previews from the movie!! They don't excite me anymore! Too much promotion is making me dizzy!! i wanna see the freaking movie once and for all!!

I read on today's newspaper an interview with Gary Oldman (= Sirius).
He said that he agreed to do HP3 basically because of the money. He continued explaining that he is not a real HP fan, but he liked for once to do a movie that also his 3 children could see. He has already signed for HP 4, but not for the 5th.
Oldman's Sirius has got a lot of tattoo on his body. ::)

i saw the third one yesterday, and i was just "WAOUW!" :o it is BRILLIANT !!! i adore it !! more than the two first.
I know some stuffs of the book are not in the movie but i didn't really pay attention to it.
The characters are great, tha actors also ! it amazing to see how they all grow ! ;D
Ron was particullary funny ;D and the stuff with Hermione also
Hermione was amazing too !! :D
David Thwelis as Porfessor Lupin is perfect !!! They really did a good choice !!
Same for Emma Thompson as Professor Sybil Trelawney she is funny !
Gary Oldman made a great Sirius Black, i would have wanted see him more in the movie... but anyway i like this actor.
Peter Pettigrow was ugly, so "rat" :D
Professor Snape was excellent, as usual ;D

Now, about the special effects, the Hippogriff was brilliant !!!! Very well done, the Sinistros too ! (scary at begining) The werewolf reminded me gollum :P But it was also pretty well done !
I found the FX better than in the two first, every stuff seemed to be more real.
I also enjoyed how they "re"looked Hogwarts, i found it "gothicer" ;D with moutains around, beautiful !
The music was great too !!!

And about the Detracter, they were really frightenning, and you know what ? They reminded me the Nazgul s... :P

So, i had a very good time i didn't what it to end ;D
You really MUST see it !!! and me, i have to read the 4th and 5th book...

-Something Wicked This Way Comes- :)

*i forget to say that i found the trio was getting cuter ;D yep*

**ALERT: SPOILERS**

I saw it a couple of hours ago! I'm so excited! I'm going to see it again tomorrow with friends! Yeeh!

Ok, my comment:
The movie is very exciting. I watched it all through taking my breath and i was giggling and clapping my hands all the time.
As you all know, in this film the director is changed, is not Chris Columbus but Alfonso Cuaron. And as you all know, POA is quite different from the previous books. I think the first 2 films were perfect illustrations of the books - I mean, the Weasley house is EXACTLY as I imagined it.
This movie is less faithful than the previous. POA is much longer than the first 2 books and so to keep the movie lenght at 2 hours they had to cut much more than for COS and SS. Many things are let out: all the importance of Quiddich to Harry, with the fact he has to win the Cup; Ravenclaw vs Griffindor is deleted, as CHO CHANG! There is NO Cho Chang in here! And the Firebolt appears only at the very end of the film.
In order to keep a reasonable lenght, they condensed some passages (that in the books happen in stretched time) in just one scene. For example, Harry is able to produce a Patronus since his second try. The second attack of Sirius Black, when he scares Ron to death, is deleted. Harry and Lupin become aware of the presence of Peter Pettigrew in Hogwarts Castle since the middle of the film.
So there are more changes than in the previuos 2 movies. Cinematograhy also changes, becoming darker and greyer.
In general, their effort was to condense all the important points of the plot. We don't see much of Hogwarts' life, Prof McGonaggal has quite vanished, and we AREN'T TOLD that Sirius and Lupin, as Padfoot and Moony, were the authors of the Marauder's Map!

There are some GREAT scenes anyway. The flight of Aunt Marge is LOL! The Dementorsare awesome, and the Dementor's kiss is wonderfully portrayed. All the ending part, when Harry and Hermione travel back to time in order to save Sirius and Buckbeak, is just PERFECT.
And the real wonder in this movie is Buckbeak. They made him EXTRA-ORDINARY! There is a scene in which Harry flies, astride Buckbeak, over Hogwarts' lake. Beautiful, really stunning.

As for the actors:
Daniel, Rupert and Emma have quite improved from the previous, expecially Daniel. I guess he'll become a little hottie as he grow up.

Michael Gambon as Dumbledore does his job well.

Emma Thompson as Prof Trelawney is quite lacking. Trelawney is not only a comical character, by her depends Harry's prophecy. They seems to have forgotten that.

Gary Oldman IS Sirius Black. Wow. I repeat it again: Gary Oldman IS Sirius Black.

Peter Pettigrew's really ugly! Bleah, filthy mudblood!

BUT WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TO MY *LATE DIRRRTY ROOM* LUPIN??? David Thewley - or what's his name - is not only phisically at the opposite of my beloved, but he lacks acting skills as well! When he talks with Hermione in the Shrieking Shak, he addresses her with a sarcastic tone that is completely out of place. My Lupin was a charismatic figure, this is so... poor. They omitted the dramatic scene in which Lupin explains his becoming a werewolf, the planting of the Whimping Willow, and why James Potter and Sirius became Animagi. The real Lupin lives in my dreams ... *sigh*

The ending note - if you read till here - is for ALAN RICKMAN. That guy (guy? He could be my father!) rocks. Snape rocks. I rock when I watch him. It's a joy for my heart. Alan, come to me when you have spare time.

Well, we may begin wandering about HP 4 - the movie...

*hugs* I love this board, lol At other places all people can do is complain about how it's changed and all that and i just want to hit them over the head(not literally lol I'm not that mean)

Maybe a few spoilers in my review thing...

At certain parts I was a bit confused, because I expected them to put in some stuff from the book into the movie, but they didn't. But that was alright. Alfonzo has such an interesting way of filming the movie, I loved it, the beggining was a great way of starting it I think, better than the first two. I just loved the R/Hr tension, so amusing to watch. As always Ron's such a great comic relief. It moved a bit quick than I would have liked, but it still flowed soo well. I just LOVED what they did with the Whomping Willow, it's SO much better than in the first movies and such a fun scene to watch.


I just cannot wait for the 4th movie, and supposedly it's coming out 5 days before my b-day, what a great b-day present, lol

I gotta agree with her. I just saw the film tonight and loved it. You can tell the difference, just the way things are and even some of the things the characters do and how they act is different. I think I prefer this director.

Anyway, it's a great film, I was satisfied :)

I hope this one is better ;)
Because the only reason that made me go to see the films was because I'm a big fan of Hp books and I was just curious to know what it was going to be like :-\
I hope this one won't be another deception

I came here with tons of good comments for POA, but you guys have already mentioned them!

For those of you who aren't going to see the movie because of dissapointment with the prior two, I strongly suggest you consider! In this film, Hogwarts really becomes magical, the story really matures, the comedy florishes, and the young actors really come into their own.

2 thumbs up, five *s, et cetera.

hah, then doesn't Harry say 'You get them Ron' so cute, the theater laughed at that.

I agree, this one is much more mature than the others, cosidering it's a teen movie (all the main actors are teens) you're going to have those moments. There were a lot of changes, but I agree, if you didn't really like the first 2 this one is much better. I've convinced 2 of my best buddies (who arn't really huge HP fans) to go see it, I've just gotta figure out when we're going, hopefully they'll like it.

Post by: HobbitFancier on June 05, 2004, 10:22:56 pm

I'm really glad that so many of you enjoyed it! Because I certainly did. Sure, there were some deviations from the book.. but you have to expect that with any interrpretation from a book.. It's inevitable. But this film was truly good. I don't care how much was changed/left out.

***WARNING: RAMPANT SPOILERS AHEAD***




Alfonso is my hero. The film was directed beautifully, and I especially liked the scene transitions.. just bits of nature shown here and there. It's was nice. Also, the general cinematography was extremely well done. Oh, and I love the new Hogwarts set. I was originally dreading it.. but it rocked! Much more gothic and craggy and just.. good. Plus, we finally see the Lake!!

Oldman was good as Black, thank God. I was fearful. But other than his disturbingly bad teeth, he was perfect. Emma Thompson was great as Trelawny; she played the part well. Thewlis.. eh, he was alright. He wasn't how I'd pictured Lupin, but I suppose I'll have to live with it.

The acting improved! *Dance.* Daniel seemed so much more natural at points, which made the overall feeling of the scenes much better; more flowing. And Rupert.. I heart Rupert. He plays Ron so brilliantly! He was so funny.. and you gotta love all the knitted sweaters that he wears! Oh, and I must also add that Fred and George rock. Whoo.

My friend also pointed out the fact that the younger actors really seemed to act better with the new older actors (i.e. Oldman, Thewlis, Thompson). The scenes they did with them had much more feeling than normal, I thought.

BUCKBEAK! Dude, he was awesome. That's all there is to say. I was pleasantly amazed at how realistic he appeared! But then again, all the animation in this film was done with a lot more precision. Lupin's werewolf was also kind of cool. So totally not what most people picture a werewolf to look like, but still hauntingly scary and cool at the same time. I liked it.

The Time-Turner bit was so very cool! I was wondering how they planned to do it, but I needn't have worried. It was possibly the best part of the movie. Very well done; some parts were exactly as I had always pictured them.

Dementors! I wasn't sure what I thought of them at first. But as they were flying around, making things frost and freeze.. eee, they were good. And not Nazgul-ish at all, which was a relief. The Patronus was kinda cool.. though I wish it would have taken the shape of a Stag more than just the once. Oh well.

I'll stop now, though I could go on for quite a while longer. For all those who don't want to see it because of fear from the first two.. I suggest you reconsider. It truly is a better movie. I actually, for the first time in watching an HP movie, felt myself transported for a time to Hogwarts, and the world of Harry Potter. So kudos to Alfonso! *Throws confetti.*

Oh man. I so completely agree on these two points. the time-turner part was awesome, one of my favourite effects of all time. And the Dementors weren't all that Nazgul-ish, at all, really.
Did anyone notice that beautiful shot of Harry and Hermione on the edge of the forest and green hills splayed out in front of them? So wonderful!

But just one question; what's up with the shrunken Jamaican heads?!

i am agree with you girls.
I know, i wrote the dementors reminded me the nazgul, but it was the first time i saw them... in the train, you know, i didn't really realize they flew... That was my first impression... (maybe the black clothes, and the noise they did...) but anyway, they were scarier than the Nazgul, for sure !

Yeah, Ron is delightfully funny :) and his dream with spiders made all the theater laugh ! ;D

And, to *GreenWhimsy*, i dunno about that shrunken Jamaican head... (don't remember if he was in the book... )

I've just been to see it and I think it was good. I still can't believe how different the settings around the school were though and how everything was in different places. But it looked alot better than in the first two films. Also some of the big parts were cut out that were in the book. But I can understand that as they can only make it a certain length before people start to get bored.

But anyway, I loved Ron in this movie! He's so funny and cute ::) Also I have to admit all of they're acting was better and more mature (except when Hermione was so blatantly fake laughing) Daniel's especially was better, and he looked alot older and more good-lookin' 8)
The Dementors were weird They looked kinda kool though when they were floatin' around the sky, but when it done a close up of the inside of their mouths; that was gross!

Oh yeah and forgot to mention, the little casual 'moments' between Ron and Hermione. The touching of the hand and when she hugs him ;)

Is it just me or did the uniforms change?

Title: Re:Harry Potter 3 - The Prisoner of Azkaban
Post by: Pippinslova on June 06, 2004, 06:02:37 pm

Not just the uniforms... the settings as well (shame on me if this has been said before, I couldn't get myself into reading everything).

Hagrid's hut wasn't 'lower' than the castle (meaning the wizards had to take a lot of stairs downwards to get to his place) in the first 2 movies. I can recall a scene where they were running towards his place in the first movie I think it was, running over a large piece of grassy field and then behind his little cabin was the forbidden forest!
I haven't seen the forbidden forest anywhere near his cabin in this movie.. Although I'm pretty sure it had to be the same as where Harry and Hermione faced Mr Lupin aka the Werewolf... :o Scary part that was!

Book 3 has always been my favourite book and the movie hasn't changed that opinion. Quite frankly only intensified it. I loved the drama that's happening to Harry in this movie. The falling of his broom part, the fainting around Dementors part. It makes everything I felt in my mind while reading it, all the more intrigueing while seeing it.
Although IMO they should've gone more into the screaming voice of a woman Harry talked about after the first time he fainted when he met a Dementor.
The book makes it clear, that the woman was in fact Harry's Mother, but yet, the movie only has once the screaming and then it doesn't get touched at all anymore.
Still, I've seen it twice, I loved it, and I hope to see it a few times more before it gets out of the cinemas!

yeah, the screaming and the stag could have been stronger in the film, but at least they were there.

I think it's excellant that the people working on the film weren't afraid to change things around. I prefer this new version to the other two films.

I can't wait to see how they will fit all 734 (was that it?) pages of the Goblet of Fire into a decent length movie, but I'm sure they'll manage ;).

Hmm. Yeah, GoF is going to be the real challenge. I hope they make it into 2 separte films.. I don't see how they could possibly pull it off otherwise. I also wish Alfonso was doing the fourth film. Meh, I like him.

Petra, I think the 'screaming woman' bit was explained later.. when Harry was talking to Lupin. I remember it so vividly because that's when it began to sound like Lupin had a thing going for Lily (BAH!!). So yeah, I think it was clarified that it was Harry's mum.

[quote]Hagrid's hut wasn't 'lower' than the castle (meaning the wizards had to take a lot of stairs downwards to get to his place) in the first 2 movies. I can recall a scene where they were running towards his place in the first movie I think it was, running over a large piece of grassy field and then behind his little cabin was the forbidden forest!
I haven't seen the forbidden forest anywhere near his cabin in this movie..[/quote]

Me and my mate couldn't stop pointing out the differences between it all. I saw this on a website though....

Deliberate "mistake": It was a deliberate directorial decision to change the geography of Hogwarts, but it still grates with continuity. Most of the Buckbeak scenes happen around Hagrid's hut, which is down all those steps and near the forest. However in the Philosopher's Stone, Hagrid's hut is about 5 seconds walk from one of the main entrances of the school, nowhere near a load of steps and huge hill. Also the whomping willow is in the grounds of the castle as you see it on flat land when Harry and Ron land the flying car in the Chamber of Secrets, however in this one it is right away from the school next to quite rocky land.

But still I have to admit, I think it looks better in this film, it looks more creepy and suits the description of the books more.

I didn't like the 3rd movie at all. It was way too fast. I mean, during the whole shrieking shack scene, it was like 30 seconds and all the sudden Harry belived Sirius and was like OMG I love you now. Also, Dumbledore was not like his usual serene self. The new actor portrayed him as a totaly different person. Also, there were some scene changes from the first two movies that were uncalled for. Also, the movie ended with something that happened in the exact middle of the book. And another thing, Quiditch was in there like, once and in the book it is one of the main parts. Also, I know they have to stick to the story and everything but they didn't put in any of the little things that matter. Ex: House Cup, Quiditch cup, points being lost and gained, etc. Also, what was with the whole shrunker head things. I don't ever remember reading about those. Also, things are supposed to jump out of the way of the Night Bus, just a minor thing I know. I don't like this new director at all and I think Chris Columbus should come back because he did a way better job. *Sigh* OK, I'm done venting...

Walking Fair, you made good points. I wrote about the changes in my previous review in the previous page. They missed all the Quiddich importance for Harry.

This was when Lupin was talking to Harry about his parents and he almost seemed to be implying that he had had an affair with Lily or something like that. It was very weird and quite wrong cos it doesnt happen in the book at all. I didn't like it either.

Before i saw the film i was soo worried about how Sirius would be portrayed and i didn't think Gary Oldman would do a very good job, but i have to admit that i actually thought he was quite good. He's still not quite the Sirius i have in my mind but he was fine, especially at the end when he is saying goodbye to Harry, that part was very moving!Although im not sure about the tattoos :-\

I thought the overall atmosphere of the film was great! it had much more spirit then the first two films.

What did you think of the guy who went in for Richard Harris as Dumbledore? I hate to say it, but I think I actually like him better. Albus always seems very energetic in the books (and it is described as one of his atributes) but I never felt the energy with Harris. The AB (forgot his name), I think, potrays this a bit better. Though, he doesn't get a whole lot of screen time in this film, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Title: Re:Harry Potter 3 - The Prisoner of Azkaban
Post by: Person on June 07, 2004, 07:09:26 pm

I didn't know what to think about the new Dumledore. I really liked how Richard Harris played him, and I think I preferred him. I know what you mean about him being portrayed in the books as energetic... hmm dunno though 'cause I think he has more of an energy rather than energy itself. Like a presence. If that makes sense ::)

I agree totally with this. I liked how Richard Harris played Dumbledore. He was quiet, and yet there was still a harnessed energy about him that you knew was there, but he just didn't show.

With the new Albus (Michael Gambon, for those who couldn't remember his name), the energy is more outwardly shown.. Which isn't wrong, because that's more how he is in the books. But we're just all so used to Harris' reserved Dumbledore, that it comes as a shock to see him played with more energy.

I dunno, I personally preferred Harris (especially after OotP, where Dumbledore was more tight-lipped, and I could totally picture Harris playing him like that). But, then again, we have Dumbledore actually taking part in some action and wand fighting in upcoming movies.. so in that sense, I can better picture Gambon in the role.

Hmm. It's interesting. But there's nothing to do.. it's not like Harris was replaced intentionally..

Title: Re:Harry Potter 3 - The Prisoner of Azkaban
Post by: Elijahs_Sweetheart on June 08, 2004, 12:30:20 pm

I get what you guys are saying - what did upset me about Micheal Gambon and the late Richard Harris is that Harris worked so hard in those films and would still have the part if he hadn't died. You would think, out of respect if nothing else, that Gambon would have watched the first two and studied how Harris played him so that it wasnt such a big shock. As it is I dont reckon he did that, i think he just played him his own way and I find that very upsetting and unprofessional.
I think the reason Gambon seems like he has a bag load more energy is because Rich harris was obviously Ill in COS - you could see it in his performance, in fact I mentioned it when I went to see it when it came out, how ill he looked and than he died...
I think Micheal Gambon has to earn any kind of compliment from me...

Title: Re:Harry Potter 3 - The Prisoner of Azkaban
Post by: Emwyn47 on June 08, 2004, 02:09:47 pm

I think Michael Gambon is entitled to interpret the role in his own way and i don't think its disrespectful that he chose to portray dumbledore differently to Harris. However i did prefer Harris's Dumbledore, he seemed more powerful even though he was ill at the time. Gambon is a bit too lively and doesn't have as much of the aura about him that Dumbledore has in the books.

Title: Re:Harry Potter 3 - The Prisoner of Azkaban
Post by: Elijahs_Sweetheart on June 08, 2004, 02:14:51 pm

I dont know, I just think that in my eyes a character, irispective of the actor, is a full life character and in the eyes of the audience should not be changed or altered. If Gambon was doing his job right he would have researched Harris' portrayal of him to make the film and the series more believable.
He is after all supposed to be the exact same person we saw in the last film.

And about the Dumbledore thing, I don't think it's disrespectful either. All actors have different methods, and I'm not surprised that Gambon doesn't do it exactly the same as what Harris done. Although I did prefer Harris, you gota give him credit, he's taking on a big role and besides he had very little screentime in this one so I don't think we can judge fairly yet.

I like Gambon...I don't know why, I just do. Although I didn't like how after Harry and Hermione got back from the Time Turner he was kind of mean, but maybe that was the director's idea. I personally think Harris had horrible reactions to things. Like when he ate the earwax Every Flavor Beans, he didn't seem to care, but in the books it said that he made a face. *sigh* Think they both did well, though. I was amazed at how similar they looked. Well, maybe it was just the beard.

PoA as a movie is spectatular! Yeah, it did move quickly...too quickly for my liking, but overall it was amazing. The special effects were awesome, the acting has improved tremendously...but I just have a pet peeve when it comes to movies being different from the books. If I hadn't read the books, I would have enjoyed the movie a whole lot more...though I'd probably be confused.

I HATED how they left out the part when Malfoy and his gang show up to the Quidditch match! I was so upset. Ron never got Pig, either. *cries* I love that owl...

I am agree with you ! Each actor has his way of acting. I can imagine the pressure of Gambon his stress cuz he had to take the characters that an other actor had already developped, and who was already familiar for the fans. I think he tries to do his best, and i find him good ;D Even if Harris was more impressing and as you said "powerfull", you know, "the quiet strength". I think we haven't seen Gambon enough to have a good opinion of his way of acting but me too, i liked what he does to save the life of Buckbeack and what he said to Harry and Hermione coming back from they "Time Trip"
He is just "different" :P

Title: Re:Harry Potter 3 - The Prisoner of Azkaban
Post by: curious bout efans on June 08, 2004, 06:31:59 pm

I was disappointed with the movie.

SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER

For one thing, they used the same effects all the time. They always faded out of scenes. I mean, once, twice - okay. But they just kept doing it! Where is the imagination in that?

I did not expect the Patronus to look like that. It was okay, but I mean...where was the stag? Only appeared once. If you're going to include something in a movie, I think more of an effort should be made to make it look like the things in the book.

The Dementors were perfect. Really, just very awesome. My only complaint: DEMENTORS DON'T f*ckING FLY. What was that crap?

The Jamaican heads were funny - I don't care that I had no idea what they were, they were funny.

The Knight Bus was awesome. Stan was hilarious. Good times all around.

Tom was scary. Is he supposed to be a humpback? I totally missed that in the books.

My favourite bit was the part with the time turner. That was simply amazing. I just...very funny and perfectly done. Even with the small added bits, it was great.

Daniel Radcliffe is so much better here. I loved it. He is really growing up nicely. ;) The other two were good as well.

Not impressed with Gambon at all. Harris had a more ethereal Dumbledore, one that I could believe. Gambon was harsh and scary - I didn't even see a connection between him and Harry as has been played up in the last two movies.

The music was very...different. I like the music on its own, but not in this movie. It barely had the flavour of the last two. I guess I'm just not one for inconsistencies.

The beginning was awesome. It was hilarious. Does Vernon seem bigger to anyone else? Maybe it's just me.

They skimmed. They surely did. They didn't get into almost anything. That's what I miss in the old movies. I realise that this movie was shorter, but still - they never got into anything. Made me sad.

Buckbeak was my favourite. I want a hippogriff now.

Hahah, the Monster Book of Monsters was awesome. Rock on.

Where was Crookshanks? Why didn't they include him? Just a ten second clip with him walking with Sirius - is that too much to ask?

I don't mind inconsistencies but they changed the whole feeling. I hope Cuaron stays away from the fourth movie. I am not a fan of his directing.

Hermione can't be a werewolf, people would have noticed by now, especially after the third book.

And that's all I have to say at present.

I also thought that it should have been made clearer who moony wormtail padfoot and prongs were and the fact that they were all best friends at school and made the map and became animagi etc. There's something else that really aggravated me, its only small and im probably being petty but they spelt Moony wrong. On the map was written MoonEy; there is no e! i somethimes wonder if Cuaron had actually read the book. Honestly, i ask you ::) :P I read in an interview with him that hes definitely not going to be directing the 4th film. he said one was stressful enough.

I agree the knight bus was very cool, and stan too, lol :)

Haha, Jamaican shrunken head....cracked me up, he did, he did.

What else was missing? I had this whole list in my head, but I forgot. Eh. Here's what I remember:

*Pig.
*Slytherin match where Malfoy shows up.
*Christmas.
*Harry's Birthday.
*Going to Diagon Alley.
*Flobberworms (I really wanted to see them!)
*They never told who the Firebolt was from...sure, they had Buckbeak's feathers attached, but only people who read the books were bound to notice it and know what it meant. I thought it was an owl feather at first.
*They barely had anything of Lily screaming.
*Ginny wasn't in the compartment on the train in the beginning.
*Harry doesn't get to tell Uncle Vernon about his "escaped convict" because they never get to the train.

Loads more. And the little things they changed, like when Mr. Weasley told Harry that Sirius was after him, how Hermione just magically got the Time Turner...I think instead of adding totally new things, they could have put in some of the things that were already in the damn book.

*Fumes off*
*Screams*
*Is calmed down*
*Walks back*

As I said before, I would have liked it a lot better if I had never read the books.

yeah my Mam has no intention of reading the books but she loves the films so much her eyes didnt once leave the screen when we went to see it, but me and my sister just completely ripped it apart because of the bits missing and the fact that alfonso Cuaron just skimmed the book and didnt go into much depth in any part other than the ending.
oh can i be picky as well, hermione's (emma wotson) hair is becoming more and more light and she has so obviously just had it curled to almost perfection and the bit when they are behind the trees after using the time turner and 'mione says 'i cant belive my hair looks like that from the back' (cant remember the word for word quote) is just so out of character and i cant recall her saying that in the book i may be wrong, it just got to me. I'm not being evil to emma wotson because she has really improved her acting ability and she understands the character but she doesnt really look the part, i excepted her appearence in the first to films and her hair was more messy then but now its too perfect. grrrrrrrrr

miss hell, i agree with you about what Hermione says, it does seem out of character and no it doesnt happen in the book. It did make me laugh though, just the way she said it i guess.... ;D

Yeah I agree ;)

That made me laugh when she said that. But she does look different with the hair and everything..... 'cause she got older and prettier. Can't really be helped ::)

Very true Shady! she has been getting prettier and prettier, she'll probably be stunning when shes older. I do like her hair, even though its not very Hermione-ish, its still very pretty.

Well I'm just afraid that if I read the books after seeing the films they will lose their magic...

I won't like the films as much. I dunno.


Who knows... perhaps I will pick up one of the books some year and read it, but I have no desire right now.

Don't shoot me! I understand they are awesome books, I agree.
I'm reading a series of books now, and I can barely find the time to read them.. so starting the Harry Potter series right now isn't an option. :)

Yeah me too. I think that's the main thing that made her look different.

She used to look all young and cute... But everyone's shocked 'cause she got older. I was talking to my mate about seeing the PoA the other day and he said, didnt like Hermione get hot? ::)

I thought of something else. They make Malfoy out to be a big sissy. He's not that bad in the books. They make him whine and I'm just not down with that. It seems like they played up that part.

Anyway, continue. 8)

*Flobberworms (I really wanted to see them!)
*They never told who the Firebolt was from...sure, they had Buckbeak's feathers attached, but only people who read the books were bound to notice it and know what it meant. I thought it was an owl feather at first.
*They barely had anything of Lily screaming.
*Ginny wasn't in the compartment on the train in the beginning.
*Harry doesn't get to tell Uncle Vernon about his "escaped convict" because they never get to the train.[/quote]

Here's more to my list:
*Percy being Head Boy (was that in the movie? I forget.)
*Sir Cadogen ( :'( )
*Exams (the prophecy...it wasn't after the exams)
*Scabbers being ill
*Harry's Invisiblity Cloak slipping off in front of Malfoy

And again, there's more but I forget it...Boy, I'm just tearing this movie apart. I don't hate it that much, I'd definitely see it again. Just the fact that it was different.

Glinda, lol, i feel the same too! i dont hate the movie but i do keep thinking of things that werent in it. Id forgotten about sir Cadogan, hes funny :-\

they still didnt show Peeves! i hope they put him in the next film cos id like to see how they show him! ok, that'll be the last complaint i make.... :P

Well, in the movie, at the beginning in the Leaky Cauldron there is Percy with his Head Boy badge on his uniform.
In Hogwarts, there is at least 2 times when Percy cries "Let me pass! I'm Head Boy!". One is surely when the Fat Lady portrail has been slashed by Sirius. I can perfectly remember the voice of Percy in there. The other time I don't remember. *hope this is helpful*

Sir Cadogen's a ghost.. right? Either that or I've forgot ::)

Anyway yeah, he was supposed to be played by Paul Whitehouse, so I thought he'd be in it...

I only remember seeing Percy about once.

Post by: HobbitFancier on June 10, 2004, 03:02:46 pm

Sir Cadogan.. I really did miss him! I was rather looking forward to his character. But oh well.

Shady, Sir Cadogan was the silly knight that lived in the pictures inside Hogwarts. He took over for the Fat Lady when she went to be restored after the Sirius attack.

And, actually, when the whole Fat Lady incident was playing out, I think there was a glimpse of Sir Cadogan in a backround painting. I just know I saw someone/something jumping around in armour. Lol. But I still wish he would've been in the film. He was such a funny character!

I remember now who is that Sir Cadogan !! ;D (i read the book a long time ago and have forgotten a lot of things!)
I don't think i saw him in the movie... But it would have been funny to see him !

About Percy, i think i saw him 2 times : at the Leaky Cauldron, when the Weasley family arrived and after the Fat Lady incident.

I saw that too, and I got really excited about it and told my mum and she hit me for talking :'(
And i don't know if any one else has mentioned this (I'm too lazy to look) but they didn't explain who Moony, Padfoot, Prongs and Wormtail were.

There was another funny Ron moment I remembered while I was cleaning my bathroom but I forget. Eh.

There are many funny Ron moments... my fave has to be the spider thing though, was so cute ;D

Post by: Grawsywoll on June 13, 2004, 03:17:29 pm

OK, i've seen the film, and i'm sorry... It's time for my famous review! ;D I'll remind you again that this is my opinion...

OK, here we go;
- It wasn't faithful to the book as what i can remember from reading it.
- The children [Daniel, Rupert, Emma etc] are all getting too old for these roles now. It didn't look right to me... :-\
- Daniel Radcliffe sooo deserves an Oscar for yet another wooden and dry performance ::) - when will he ever show expression?
- I prefered the original Dumbledore, [Richard Harris] and i know he had to be replaced, but the new Dumbledore doesn't ring true to me. He's indeed very good, but he doesn't have the mannerisms that i thought Dumbledore would have.
- I LOVE ROBBIE COLTRANE AS HAGRID! He is by far, the best thing to come out of these films! He's great!
- Gary Oldman. What can i say? He's always brilliant and brings every character to he plays to life. He was very good, though it was disappointing to see so little of him.
- The special effects, i've noticed, in this film have been jacked up more than the other two. They were much better.
- Emma Thompson was hilarious! She, like Gary Oldman, is always very good in what she does, and she brought that much needed hint of character to the screen! I'd see it again just for her! LOL!
- This is enjoyable, to people like me, in sense that you can take the mick out of it. It seems to be an enjoyable story to others for the purpose that, it's a good old tale of witchcraft and wizadry, brought into modern day life, which is a nice, fresh change. Not my cup of tea though i'm affraid. But i can see the appeal of it to others.

OK, i'm done! ;)

I really enjoyed this movie - and I was absolutely shocked (I thought I would hate it, POA being my fav. book). I just saw it and I'm going to see it again tonight.

I love Remus/Sirius -- and they were both perfect, I was a little worried about David Thewlis to begin with, but he was perfect as was Gary Oldman.

The movie was.... darker than the first two - and the special effects were not done like 'here, look how well we did this - and now this --- see, aren't we clever!', if fit together much better. (One exception was Lupin as a werewolf, but that's just personal expectations)

On a whole - it was great.

Malfoy - fantastic.
Ron - I actually quite liked, which I wasn't expecting
Neville - was adorable
Fred and George - OMG, they were fantastic - THIS is the Fred and George I imagined!!
Buckbeak... very cool
Hermione - perfect, 'does my hair really look like that?' Plus, very obviously using her brains throughout the whole movie.
Harry - well, he's Harry, IMO he was pretty Harry-like

hmmm... I think that's all for now, just a bit of a gush :P

Change in director = fantastically good idea!

(they remember me the twins in Alice in Wonderland of Disney :P can't remember their names...) very well done !

I couldn't help picturing them in the fifth film.. I do hope their characters are allowed to continue on in the same fashion, because they're gonna be great!

Title: Re:Harry Potter 3 - The Prisioner of Azkaban
Post by: brissybaggins on June 17, 2004, 08:52:34 pm

I was very sad about this movie. Sad doesn't describe it well enough; I was fuming with rage during the movie and after I was consequently sad.

There was so much left out! I understand this has to happen, so that wasn't a big deal to me. The part that fumes me is when they change this from what they are in the book. Like the clock tower addition (yes, I know Rowling approved that) and the court yard being added when you walk out of the front gates of the castle. What the hey was that about?

I don't thinks this was a very good movie, mainly, because it's plot does not flow well. Too many things were unexplained. For one, the whole Hogsmead thing. It was hinted at with the note in the opening sequence, but never developed to connect with the actual going to Hogsmead thing (yes, I know HP asks Mcgonagal if she can sign it, but it wasn't a very well developed connection.). Then of course, Hogsmead wasn't explained at all. Like only third years and up got to go, and that it was a huge deal to harry that he couldn't go.

Changes! Ergh, changes. Why does Harry put on his cloke to go listen in on Mcgonagal talking about his parents. Why couldn't they have gone and had their butterbear and overheard it in the bar? What is so much more difficult about doing that than changing the whole thing around?

I have no problem with changes and cuts that don't effect the flow of the plot, make chronological sense, and make time constraint sense. I don't, however, see the reason the screen writer and director decided to make chages that fit none of the above. I don't think the screen play was written well, not from a writes point of view, lack of development and flow (did I say that already? Sorry if I did...)

On good notes. I like the new director's style. It sadened me, however, that it was the same screen writer for all three movies, and he managed to botch this one up so badly. I would think the idea of continuity should last through these movies, even if a fresh director is needed for each. On that, (back to the negative...) should have had some costume consitency! Minor things like that could be seen as artistic self representation, but why change a good thing? Especially one so minor, but lends to the continuity of the three movies so well.

The main three actors got soooo much better! They are deffinitly learning well.

By the way, who was that fella who was next to Malfoy (on his right, our left) right before he was punched by Herminoie? Crabbe or Goyle was on his other side, but the other was not either of them. Just wondering, i'd have to reread that section to clarify, but I was pretty sure crabbe goyle and Malfoy were inseperable.

I was very sad the floating head thing was cut from the snow ball fight section. That was one thing I was really looking forward to.

Ah well....

So out of 5 stars, I will give in three, first because it is Harry Potter, and no matter how much I disagree with the way it was done, it was done and not totally kaboshed. Two, they havn't had to switch out actors in lead roles (minus one, but can't blame death) (when they get a new harry/ron/hermionie that is when i am done. By the way, Emmma is not confirming film five like the rest of the cast, seems to she a shrewd business girl ;D ) And finally, soundtrack was awsome (dispite the soemthing wicked this way comes empathisis, seeing that was a pure creation, loved the jazzy knightbus tune)

*deep breath*

I will go see it again. For reanalysis :D

Best to All moviegoers!

i bought the score tuesday !! i love it ! it was composed by john williams, it's great ! I particullary like "lumos" (the 1st track) and of course "double trouble" (the 5th)-> brilliant ! The "buckbeack's flight" makes me thing about "E.T." :p logical, it is also John Williams, but, not bad ! But the score is really good, a little bit "middle age-ish" ;D like it !

(still 1 exam !!! yeah !! the holidays are very close :D )

Yes! The soundtrack is indeed awesome!! I must say John Williams rather outdid himself on this soundtrack. It's different than the first two (though Hedwig's Theme remains rather constant throughout), but different in a nice way. I really like the Medieval themes.

Rather than the hedwig theme as in the first two, the double trouble theme is prevailent in this soundtrack. I really like the jazzy feel of the knight bus song (did I say that already?) Ah well...it's cool.

I watched the movie... and i was disappointed! So many parts of the book are skipped.
But on a happier note, I find it was a bit more mature in the atmosphere and all... not as much "childish" as the other! let's say it was a good movie! but not a very good one...

I just finished reading the 3rd book again, just to refresh my memory on everything. And while there were quite a few (subtle) changes from book to film, there weren't all that many major ones. Not as many as people are making there out to be. After reading the book again, though I am reminded of which scenes I would have liked to have seen done differently, I'm still not disappointed in the movie; I think it came out good.

Post by: _sarah_ on June 24, 2004, 04:49:02 pm

i did actually love the movie, despite the amount of complaints i have about it lol

what i liked....
- daniel radcliffe acted well compared to his last two... well... bad performances, he significantly improved this time
- emma watson was great as hermione, as in the last two
- ron was really funny; in the last two, it was sometimes a bit cheesy - but in this film he was funny, and looked a lot better ;D
- malfoy looked attractive in an odd kind of way.. despite the greasy bleached hair ;D
urm yeah in general, better acting
- i thought the marauders map was done well
- i liked the attention to detail, like showing nature inbetween scenes
-the time turner part worked effectively
- buckbeak looked really good, i thought that maybe it would look unrealistic and tacky, but it was pulled off well


and.. the not so good - may be *SPOILERS*
by the way - i do love the movie, but there were a lot of changes, (which i appreciate some were necessary)
- i thought that aunt marge blowing up looked a little... well silly, but i suppose things like that just work better in a book than on film
- the knight bus was okay apart from when it squeezed between the double deckers..
- those heads? what were they? i dont recall them from the books
- the whole castle changed. i think the castle itself was fine, but just a massive change from the last two, i wish it had been more consistant, it felt like a different place
- trelawney was a bit over the top
- i wish that the shreiking shack had been longer. in the book there is a lot of explanation in that scene, but i felt that it was too rushed
- i wish they had included malfoy and co on the quidditch pitch! in the book i thought it was really funny, shame it wasnt there
- they never explained the marauders.. other people that have seen the film and not read the book seemed confused as to how lupin and sirius knew eachother
- it sounded almost as though lupin and lily had something going on
- why was hagrids hut and the forest on the side of a huge hill? massive change from the last two
- i think it should have been more clear that malfoy was being pathetic to try to get hagrid into trouble.. WAY too many non book readers have said "i was disappointed that malfoy was a wimp" and im like "arghhhh it was INTENTIONAL" (well apart from the end)
-it didnt flow as well as the others

i appreciate that they had to cut it short, but i think that just the odd extra minutes with a bit of explanation would have helped a lot

urm ok i think ill stop now, nobody will read it, its too long lol

yeah just to clarify, im not critisising, just.... pointing out things :D

but anyone who hasnt seen it - you should, its great

NERD ALERT: One of my friends turns out to be Tom Felton's step cousin! i'm currently very very very very very jealous... but i know that now i have connections! i feel proud to be a nerd!

on another note... i was disappointed by the movie. i think i was expecting too much because it had been inflated to such high status. i have a theory though: the more i see it, the more i'll like it. i was too preoccupied in picking out all the faults to see the good bits. i can't wait to see the animal-noises-sweets scene again ;D

Post by: Mushee on June 27, 2004, 12:28:43 am

Yeah, I just saw it tonight for the first time, and I was really dissapointed. They left out the quidditch cup, and Lupin telling Harry that he and the others made the map, and CHRISTMAS!! How could the leave out christmas? And Hermione getting to much work and fighting with the boys, and sooo much other stuff that it's not even funny. The ending was kinda corny too. But Daniel was super hot. My freind was like, "Stop barking, he can't hear you!"

Professer Trelawny was a little much, but I think that's how her charecter is always.
"Harry, dude, I think Professer T's got some wacky weed growing up in her tower."
"Seriously Ron? Sweet."
"Yeah, totally, Hey, do you still have your invisibilty cloak?"
"Oh yeah, I was using it last night in the girls dorm. It was awsome man."
"Let's go raid Professer T's stash."
"Excelent."

Oh yeah, and did you guys notice the simularities between Lupin as a werewolf and a certian screwed up hobbit? Were-Gollum!

One last thing, wouldn't Viggo Mortenson be perfect for Sirius? He should have been much huskier. And you could have seen his chest. *pants*

Can't say I could see Kiggo playing Sirius to be honest. I liked Gary Oldman's performance personally. I wouldn't change it.

To be perfectly honest, I'm kind of glad they left out most of the Quidditch this time, that part has always gone on for far too long.

The only problem I had was with it actually dementers on the pitch and not Draco dressed up!

Yeah, I missed that part too, just because it was funny. But I suppose it wasn't vital to the plot (unless it was to just prove Harry could produce a Patronus), so I guess I can forgive and forget.

I liked Oldman as Sirius. A lot. Putting Viggo in there would have been as bad as making Ian McKellen the new Dunbledore. Viggo's movie was LotR; not HP. End of story.

As far as Quidditch.. I would have liked to see Gryffindor win the cup, too. But really, it was just (exciting) filler in the story. Plus, if you haven't noticed, Quidditch scens take a lot of effects work, and Warner Brothers doesn't exactly have Weta Digital backing them up.. I was much happier to settle for a completely awesome Buckbeak and sacrifice a couple Quidditch scenes..

I only sorely missed more explanation as far as Lupin and Sirius and the map, etc. went. That whole bit could have been elaborated on more. But the overall effect of the timetravel section was so extremely good that again, I'll let it slide (though a bit grudgingly..).

I went to the midnight release thing at the theater. It was cool. Me and my friend dressed up. I was disappointed because I thought there was going to be a lot of people dressed up and in the spirit and we were the only 2 dressed up. :(
I thought it was so good. I just didn't really like the way they left a lot of stuff out. My friend's never read the books so me and her mom had to explain a bunch of stuff to her after it was over. Like the map and the nicknames.
I can't believe they left out the Quidditch Cup. :( I was a little disappointed in that. Dumbledore just wasn't the same. And the castle was a little too different. And what happened to the Butterbeer? That was in the 3rd book right or did it come up in the 4th book? I could have sworn it was in the 3rd.
I was a little disappointed in those things but for the most part it was really good.

Title: Re:Harry Potter 3 - The Prisioner of Azkaban
Post by: HobbitFancier on June 29, 2004, 05:26:32 pm

Yeah, Butterbeer showed up for the first time in PoA. But I gues they couldn't include everything. They could add Butterbeer into any of the other films, really. It holds no importance - it's just a really yummy drink. (But really.. it's got "beer" in it's name, and alcohol in it, according to the books.. so maybe they left it out for a reason? Who knows.)

As I've said before, I liked the 'different' castle. It matched my visions of it better. It was darker; more mysterious. And it seemed bigger somehow, too. Perfect. The clock in the castle was a nice touch, seeing as how PoA's plot revolved so much around the concept of Time.

Ahh, I don't like the new castle! I like the old one better. Now that I think about it, it was almost EXACTLY how I imagined it. I didn't imagine Hagrid's hut very far away. And it was more flat in my mind. Now it seems too....weird. I dunno.

BUTTERBEER!!!! I miss it. :'(

I did notice that they no longer wore cloaks and robes though. This didn't seem right to me as it didn't feel like Hogwarts without the uniform they used to have :-\

I saw it again on Saturday night! Whee, I liked it even more this time, I think. Though, the lack of explanation about the Maruader's Map/Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, Prongs was a little more pronounced and bothered me more. Ah, oh well. Can't have everything, I suppose.

Oh, and since I was looking out for him, I actually noticed Sir Cadogan a number of times lurking in background pictures in different scenes here and there. I don't remember exact instances (except when the Fat Lady is attacked), but there were a couple!

I love Oldman as Sirius. The only complaint I have about him is that he's so little! And Thewlis is so tall, they look silly alongside each other. But I suppose if that's my biggest complaint, it's not all that bad, eh? Lol.

Title: Re:Harry Potter 3 - The Prisoner of Azkaban
Post by: curious bout efans on July 06, 2004, 01:29:27 am

Yeah, Sir Cadogan kind of jumps around a lot of the time. It's too bad they didn't let him stay at the portrait for a while - that would've been funny.

Thewlis is taller than Oldman? I barely even noticed. I wonder about the Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs thing - if they're even going to work that into later movies. Cause why else would they show that? I dunno.

Might go see it a fourth time if the fancy strikes me. Not for a while though.

Post by: Chanterella on July 30, 2004, 06:33:18 am

I saw it yesterday night!! And I loved it! ;D

I thought it was a bit speedy at first, things happening too quickly and people speaking too fast but in the second part it seemed to slow down a bit. I prefered Richard Harris as Dumbledore but on what concerns the trio-acting, I believe it was a lot better.
I was mostly worried about Sirius and Remus (because they're the characters I love the most) but the truth was, there was nothing to be worried about. They were both great! The only part I didn't like was when Lupin and Harry were at the bridge and it seemed like Lupin had a crush on Lily. I just hope that it was a misunderstood... :-\ :)
Surprise also came when I saw the werewolf... I imagined it a lot bigger and hairier, as it also seemed a little bit silly that he would be attracted to Hermione's female howl. Emma must have been practising for hours with a howling teacher... ;D
And that all I can remember for now. :)
