About this deal

This shot (or rather, the combination of this shot and the one which preceeded it) is completely pointless and meaningless, because we don't get to see Harry present and then suddenly not there any more. A small section of the Knight Bus scene, where it weaves in between traffic, was filmed in North London's Palmers Green. Radcliffe works very well with both David Thewlis, in the role of Lupin, and Gary Oldman, in the role of Sirius Black.

Only the first Quidditch match of the school year (where Harry's Nimbus 2000 broomstick is destroyed) is part of the film's narrative, and there are no other mentions of the sport or the Gryffindor team's successful campaign for the Cup during the rest of the film. After reading the series, he changed his mind and signed on to direct, as he had immediately connected to the story. The Prisoner of Azkaban had the highest-opening weekend at the UK's box office, until Spectre beat the record in 2015. The estate of Richard Harris wanted the role to go to Richard's close friend Peter O'Toole but he also turned it down.Cuarón's use of wide angle lenses allows for more of the film's frame to appear sharp and allows both the foreground and background to be in focus at the same. The movie now also has particularly strong secondary characters like Professor Lupin, the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, who hides a big hairy secret. Guillermo del Toro was approached to direct, but had envisioned a more Dickensian version of the stories, and was put off by the first two films which he found too "bright and happy and full of light". Cuarón said, "Once we worked out the physiology, the way his bones would actually move, we had to capture his personality, which is a mixture of regal elegance, particularly when he is flying, and the clumsy and greedy creature he becomes back on land. Sadly, it appears that none of the filmmakers involved here, not even Alfonso Cuaron, easily the best of them, really understand that, and they apparently have no idea of how to portray the relationship between Ron and Hermione; they just expect the audience to go along with it figuring that most of them have read the books, so they put little to no effort into making it believable.

They also visit the wizarding village of Hogsmeade and the Shrieking Shack, which is considered the most haunted building in Britain. To make things worse, the soul sucking dementors, guards of Azkaban who are hunting Black, have developed a taste for Harry as well.It was the first in the series to extensively use real-life locations, with sets built in Scotland and scenes shot in London. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Sorcerer's Stone and Chamber of Secrets were released in December 2009 and Prisoner of Azkaban and Goblet of Fire (review coming next week) were released in October 2010.
