Is it just me? Or was Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) a much better film Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001) or Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)? I watched “Azkaban” last night and it feels entirely different — in a good way — than the first two. The plot seems SO much tighter, photography better, lighting better, everything, just better. Disclaimer: I haven’t read any of the books.
Update: I see Azkaban was directed by Alfonso Cuarón, and the first two by Chris Columbus. Sad to see Cuarón hasn’t directed any others in the series.
