Black lives matter,
under the dementor -
the most original,
and essence of evil.

Schoolchildren’s play
Animagus at bay
Self interest gets a way
Friends betray.

Time travel became clever,
abided by a game rule
when drama darkened my mood,
a trick or true pleasure?

The best Potter film, and the only one that stands on its own merit. You don't need to have read the book to understand it.

Harry Potter’s third year at Hogwarts starts off badly when he learns that deranged killer Sirius Black has escaped from Azkaban prison and is bent on murdering the teenage wizard. While Hermione’s cat torments Ron’s sickly rat, causing a rift among the trio, a swarm of dementors is sent to protect the school from Black. A mysterious new teacher who disappears once a month helps Harry learn to defend himself, but what is his secret tie to Sirius Black? Out of all the Harry Potter movies (and even books) this is my favourite. The crew created an excellent plot and used amazing graphics. The cast was also very well thought out with Sirius Black being played by Gary Oldman and Remus Lupin played by David Thewlis. The plot kept me wanting more and made me question everything I though I knew from the beginning of the film. The series got a little bit darker and there is some imagery that children may find disturbing. Rating – 5/5. @Average_Bookworm of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

The movie Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was a great movie to watch i took a liking to this movie also because i'm a big harry potter movie fan. I like this movie a lot because it had a really great plot and explained Harry Potter's past very well and who he was when he was young. I also really like this movie because it made you really think and it was a really surprising movie so it was really fun to keep guessing what was happening. This movie was a straightforward ending which I liked a lot because most movies are really guessable and you can just know the ending watching the movie half way through but this movie made you guess a lot which I liked. Without giving any spoilers, this movie is about Harry Potter and a mysterious criminal that one day ends up going missing, but what they find later on is truly incredible.I also like this movie because it gave you a good perspective on what everyone was thinking about during the whole movie. For these reasons I would give this movie a 5/5 rating. @Teen15 of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

"Hermione Granger and the time I was a Time Lord" - honestly this is her movie. Emma Watson shines in this third film - that is my favorite, so bias - which I consider to be one of the greater Harry Potter films ever. It was at this point that the story in the books was getting complex, so as a fan you had to learn to let a lot of things go because not everything can be added to the film adaptation.

The Prisoner of Azkaban is the third movie in the Harry Potter series, written by J.K. Rowling. This year dementors, creatures that guard Azkaban prison, will be at Hogwarts because the prisoner, Sirius Black, has escaped. Many believe that he is in fact after Harry because Sirius use to be friends with Harry’s dad. He betrayed Harry’s father and told Voldemort where they were hiding. Arthur Weasley tells Harry not to go looking for Black as he is a dangerous man, but of course, Harry will not listen. This movie is one of the best Harry Potter movies by far. The movies plot closely resembles the book and everything from the costumes to the set really bring the Harry Potter novel to life. If you read the book you will notice that they kept this movie true to Harry’s character. We also get to learn more about Harry’s parents in this movie. If you enjoyed the first two Harry Potter movies or the Harry Potter novels, I would recommend watching this movie. If I had to rate this movie, I would rate it five out of five stars. @SapphireReads of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Excitement chases Harry, Ron, and Hermione to Hogwarts—a murderer's escape from prison, the unveiling of a mysterious past, awful creatures called Dementors, suspenseful games of quidditch, a new DADA teacher with something strange about him, and a final battle for justice. Although it isn't my favourite film out of the series, I still enjoyed it and am looking forward to the next one.

This movie starts to make it difficult for those that have not read the books. There are many scenes that lack any kind of explanation and the movie chooses to focus primarily on the darker aspects of the books. The change from the Chamber of Secrets to the Prisoner of Azkaban can be noted as soon as the movie begins. The color palette uses mostly dark colors, taking away the magical feeling that is representative of Harry Potter.

This movie is very well done. Although i, like many others, was stunned by the stark difference in look and feel of the 3rd HP compared to the first two films, I always liked it. It doesn't deviate that much, like the movies that follow. I would love to return to all the films and watch them in order ; the third, the fifth, even the fourth are actually quite beautiful. It's the sixth that breaks the flow of loveliness.

Best movie ever!!!!! It is so awesome!!!!
