Critics reviews

With Azkaban, the Potter films went from something with the look and feel of an after-school special to the look and feel of cinema. If you’re shaky on the details, just compare any scene in Columbus’s version with any from Cuarón’s… Note, in [Azkaban], the wide variety of techniques on display—long gliding takes and dramatic insert shots—as well as the inventive staging.
