About this deal

David Bradley appears as Argus Filch, Hogwarts' caretaker, [25] while Robert Hardy portrays Cornelius Fudge, the Minister for Magic. John Williams final Harry Potter score sounds wonderful, always sounding clear and at the right level not overpowering of what's happening on screen. This leads the trio through an underground passage into the Shrieking Shack, where the dog is revealed to be Black, an Animagus who can transform into an animal. Alfonso Cuarón (Great Expectations, Y Tu Mamá También, Children of Men) steps into the director's chair and makes an immediate difference in the tone and look of the film. The slipcover folds together but the seam isn't flush and pushes the sets apart when they're on the shelf.

While shorter than Sorcerer's Stone or Chamber of Secrets, Azkaban flies by hardly feeling like a 2 hour, 21 minute film. To make it even more obvious, the fullscreen image is brighter than the widescreen image surrounding it. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban improves on the original two films in almost every conceivable way; tone, effects, direction, pacing, and the quality of the acting and the new cast additions are just a few of the ways that this film improves over previous installments.

So hatte ich mich auf Harrys 14 Tage in der Winkelgasse gefreut - aber mal ehrlich, dort passiert wirklich nichts, was tatsächlich für den weiteren Handlungsverlauf ganz wichtig wäre. Harry finds Black, who are then both attacked by Dementors until an unseen figure casts a powerful Patronus charm to ward them off. They also visit the wizarding village of Hogsmeade and the Shrieking Shack, which is considered the most haunted building in Britain.

Some people say that the "widescreen debate" is an issue only for movie buffs and arty-farty conversation, that it's not relevant to action or "children's movies". Before seeing him in this I had only seen Thewlis in a few films but since he's become one of my favorite actors and I make a point to see whatever he's in. In cases like this one, where there are so many names, and the list meanders down, left, right and up at times, the only way to display all the names is to include the full width of the original widescreen design, which requires the inclusion of the dreaded "black bars" at the top and bottom of the screen. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone' Turns 20: Director Chris Columbus Reflects on Pressures to Adapt Book and Hopes to Direct 'Cursed Child' ".The only way I can imagine this scene on the landing outside Harry's room could be transferred to a fullscreen print would be for a rapid pan across the screen from the chamber maid to Harry leaving his room, ruining a perfect static shot. This is the same transfer used on the previously released Blu-ray and HD-DVD and it still looks great even four years later. Timothy Spall as Peter Pettigrew: A former friend of Harry's parents said to have been killed by Sirius Black, but was later revealed to have been the real Death Eater who betrayed Harry's parents to Voldemort. Die Umsetzung der Trelawney als kurzsichtige New Age Wahrsagerin im Hippie-Stil fand ich viel besser als das, was ich mir nach dem Buch unter ihr vorgestellt hatte - und sie befriedigt meinen ganz persönlichen Sarkasmus in Bezug auf so manches New-Age-Geschwafel ungemein (ich darf das sagen, komme selber aus der New Age Bewegung). Thankfully not all is lost, there is still the third part of the Creating the World of Harry Potter documentary.
