Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)

Well, I watched the third film in the Harry Potter series last night. 🧙‍♂️

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)

I really enjoyed this one!

Maybe it’s because the main characters are that much older and the tone has shifted but it didn’t feel like 2 hours 20 minutes had gone by when the credits roled.

The acting was a lot better too and hey, Gary Oldman’s in it...enough said!

My one and only criticism is that I preferred Richard Harris as Dumbledore. I’ve always been surprised that they cast Michael Gambon to replace him after his death since his version of the character is so different. Don’t get me wrong Michael Gambon is a great actor, he just doesn’t have the same screen presence.

That said, he was still good, I just preferred Richard Harris (RIP). 😥

Considering this is one of the three Harry Potter films I’d already seen, I can’t say a lot of it was that familiar. It’s kind of handy though because it felt like I was watching it for the first time.

I’m in uncharted territory now. I’ve literally not seen anything of the next five films so I’ve got a lot to look forward to!

I’m not sure I’ll get any more in this week but when I watch Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire you’ll be the first to know about it. 👍

P.S. How much do you want to punch Malfoy!! 👊😡
