      Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban 2004 Year

      The Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite in the entire series, and the rescue across time and space is thrilling and heartwarming. The movie is also great; the rhythm is tight, the clues are interlocking, and the main plot is still intact. But it seems that in the end, it was not clear who sent the firebolt. Sirius' letter was also deleted...

      The clothes are not as good as the first two. What is that for handsome guys and beauties? It's hard to be calm. Many...

      Review of "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban"

      With such expectations, you will get a great surprise. If in the first two films, adults find themselves secretly sharing the joy of fairy tales with children and feel a little embarrassed about it, in this one we feel guilty for enjoying it more than children. "Prisoner of Azkaban" is a full-blown episodic film that adds story, suspense, and shock to magic, stunts, and action. Twists and surprises make it hard to guess the outcome. You don't have time to guess,...

      What impresses me most about watching this movie is the dementors, I think they are the embodiment of depression, only people who have experienced real pain are afraid of them, such as Harry Potter is very afraid of dementors, and others Not afraid. The teacher said that love and happiness are needed to deal with dementors. Harry Potter thought that the joy of the game can not disperse the dementors. Only the true mother's love is the best weapon. Ms. Rowling should have experienced...

      The brightest star in the night sky - Sirius Black

      Twelve years later, I revisited Harry potter again, without the yearning for the fantasy world as a child, but the blood, friendship, family affection and love in the play were shocked. With the progress of the plot, the song ended and people dispersed, leaving a lot of uneasy feelings after all.

      The hardest part is probably the ending of Sirius Black. Sirius Black appeared in HP3 and died in HP5. From sixteen to twenty-one years old, at Hogwarts, I met James, Lupin... a group of...

      sixteen years ago

      It's amazing that a movie from 16 years ago can bring me so immersed into the magical world. A good film always has the magic power to create its own atmosphere and even tone. Watching the Sichuanese version of "Let the Bullets Fly" is the same, I fell into that time and space at once, maybe this is the charm of the movie.

      Perhaps the most serious part of my drama is Dumbledore's line: No one will believe what you three 13-year-olds say. When I thought that...

      As a movie changing from a child's orientation to a teenager's orientation, this film attempts to construct a more cold and mysterious effect than the previous one. From this point of view, this is actually more in line with the more mysterious and thrilling story setting itself of this part. And the addition of Gary Oldman can really make the audience...

      Nima is still going back in time. If you are a werewolf, don't plan an action on a full moon night. Harry Potter is the immortal body of Invincible King Kong, and there is no suspense at...

    Shooting process

    In order to cater to the melancholic style of the film, the director arranged a number of rain scenes. Because the story of the film is darker than the previous two, the lighting is also more dull and mixed with more shadows. Director Card used a large number of wide-angle lenses to tell the story. The film crew encountered 28 days of rainy weather during the shooting in Korch, Scotland, which coincided with the shooting requirements...

    Positive Reviews

    This new work that mixes freshness and darkness will not only satisfy the fans, but also allow more viewers to join the camp. ( "Dallas Morning News" review )
    Compared with the previous two, "Harry Potter 3" is even more eerie and terrifying. In the third year of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, many of Harry Potter's experiences were related to the death of his parents. The appearance of Sirius Black added a lot of tension...
