This is my favorite, so far, of the movie series. The characters really develop nicely and I became endeared to Sirius Black and the injustice that life had dealt him. I am a big fan of the series, you really can't go wrong with any of these great adaptations from J.K. Rowling's books.

This film was by far the most well-done adaptation of any book from the "Harry Potter" series. The artistic vision of Alfonso is truly breath-taking, and makes the halls of Hogwarts seem so ancient. The movies before this one were an exact copy of the book, with lack of vision or creativity. They were just like watching the book. Yes, I realize that some details were left unnoticed, but J.K. Rowling wouldn't have let that happen if she didn't think it was crucial for explanation. Think about that. I cannot say enough about how truly amazing this film was, but it will always remain the best movie of the "Harry Potter" series.

O.K. The first two SUCKED! i am in love with the books (HP is my favorite book series). The biggest problem with them was their director, Chris Colombus. He was a slave to the books which might not be bad for some people, but was painful for me. Film adaptations, while being an interpretation of a pre-conceived story, do not have to be slavenly beholden to that which they interpret. The film and the book are two different art forms. Therefore, do in books what works for books (every detail meticulously laid out and described), but do in movies what works for movies (changes to make the plot more palatable visually, excitement, visible emotion,etc). Chris Colombus did exactly the opposite of what I have described. with the change in director, however, the Harry Potter movies have begun to take on a life of their own, and are beginning to resemble the cleverly disguised mature works of fiction that the books are. Prisoner of Azkaban was fraught with mystery and terror, and had those little sparks of emotion that make the books so special. All in all, this is the first good Harry Potter movie

i am A BIG BIG BIG hp fanatic and personaly, Harry Potter and the POA was my favorite book but the movie dissapointed me. It didnt stick to the book at all and it clipped out sum great parts. if u havent read the books it is a pretty good movie but is a BIG dissapointment to big fans of the book. it clipped out the most of the quidditch which is pretty big in this movie seeing as in that book is when he gets his first crush. they added some unneccesary things and took out some of the funny things of the actual book. At the top of my head, i can remember quite a few things they added that took away valuable time they could hve used for putting more details from the book. The part where Harry is riding Buckbeak takes more time than it could have is one thing. they completely altered sum things from the books which annoyed me. it was a dissapointment for me because i cherish the harry potter books so deeply but if you just concentrate on the movie and the movie only it is overall okay, the visual effects were fine and the dementors were done very well even though a pictured them a bit different i thought they were fantastic. but i was dissapointed when i walked out of the theatre with my friends.
