Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban  

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban


I remember liking the movie. I remember thinking it was pretty good. I still like it but it annoys me how much they changed. Why do that to the story?


Sirius gave Harry the Firebolt at Christmas not at the end of the school year! Harry also wasn’t with Hermione when he did the saved himself and Sirius at the end. Of course, they also had to go and change who saw Peter on the map too. Why? It was unnecessary and made a lot more sense the why J.K. wrote it.


I still like the movie though not nearly as much a when I first watched it. Grrrr…

I have to confess I far prefer the book myself. I hate it when they change major things just to make it more 'movei-like'.

Nonetheless, it was a great story and still remains my favourite of all the Harry Potters. :)

Yeah. I really liked it too. So far it was my favorite of the books but I'm not that far into Goblet of Fire.

It's really dumb but I get all happy when Sirius is in the book. I think I'm nutty.

How did it go with the invites for the 'fiesta' for your niece right?

I friended you back, did I already tell you :) I'm not sure.

I hate when movies disappoint like that. The last movie I saw (that I also read) was the Da Vinci Code and I think they stuck too the book pretty closely) I can't remember the last time I was just so frustrated by the unnecessary changes, but I totally know what you mean!

As for Harry. I read them (or to be more precise I listen to them as soon as they come out - I start calling the library a month or so before the book is to be released so that I can be the first to get the books on tape once they are in their system. I'm a total dork!)) so by the time the movie comes out a few years later for that book, I dont remember the details and can just enjoy the movie. Otherwise I'd be just like you, all annoyed at the details!

Oh I'm sorry! I forgot to tell you. I didn't find a whole lot but the places you did send me had some pretty cool things which I ended up cropping and changing a bit to make a really neat invitation. Someone who got it decided they wanted me to make a invitation for them which I'll get paid to do... so that was neat... thanks for the help!

That's awesome!!! I love when things work out like that and lead to other things! Yay! You're totally welcome :)

What is my problem. I answered you but not everything you said. I keep doing that. My mind gets stuck on one thing and everything else is out of the brain! Grrrr... must focus.

I never read the Da Vinci Code or saw the movie. Wasn't interested. But I did read and watch Eragon... that they totally screwed up. If you care to read my rant on that it is under the tags "bookshelf" & "reviews".

I saw all the Harry Potter movies first and now I'm listening to them. I got so into Azkaban that I wanted to watch it and was so frustrated at all the differences. I still like the movies it's just frustrating that they changed the stories for the movies.

*sigh* I'm done with my rant. *big grin*

Ha. No worries.

I only read the Da Vinci Code because the movie was coming out and thought I'd like to see it (I adore Audrey Tatou! and Tom Hanks is usually good - I was rather disappointed in Tom Hanks though, he didn't fit with the idea of what I wanted the main character to be so that kinda sucked)

My boss was going to go see Eragon last weekend as she LOVES all things dragons and scifi, but everyone kept telling her that it sucked so she didn't end up going. I was trying to get her to read the book when I found out that it would be a movie as she IS a voracious reader. She didn't read it though. So I guess I wont go see it, though it did look fun if not a little too Harry-ish.

Some of her favorite books are Earth Sea series. She had read them many times so I taped it for her when it was a miniseries on scifi a few years ago. She wasn't impressed with all the changes and so that prompted us to get the books on tape from the library and listen while at work. That was fun.

I try to keep the Harry books and movies separate but changes are frustrating I agree.

Rants are good :)

From previous discussion:
After reading the Outlander Series I'm way more into the Scottish though really I always was cause my Step Grandmother was Scottish and she made us care about that.

This discussion:
I love Audrey too. I've only seen her in Amelie but I love that movie.

If you haven't read Eragon you might like the movie. It's just that once you read the book the disappointment is obvious. I would suggest you and your boss judge for yourselfs... it was very Lord of the Rings though.

I've never read the Earth Sea books... can't remember if I watched the movie.

I just finished Goblet of Fire... wow. Still really loved Azkaban but I love that Sirius was in the hospital wing with him as the dog. I really like Sirius... I think he's my fav.

Amelie is one of my favorite movies :)

I would like to see Eragon, maybe it will be in the $2 theater soon, then it doesn't really matter if it sucks :) lol

Earth Sea the books are fun though the miniseries had the girl from Smallville and I had a hard time seeing past that and the other young actors in it made it a bit to OC-ish.

Sirius is awesome. Order of the Phoenix is next right? He has a good role in that one if I remember. Are you spoiled at all for that one?

I remember now. I did see the Earth-Sea miniseries. I didn't like it because of "Lana" but I kept thinking the story had potential.

I haven't heard much about Phoenix but I did accidently stumble on the fact that Sirius died. My sister told me I had to read (or in my case) listen to the story before I got upset. She seems to think there is more to it than death. So whatever. It still upsets me that he could be gone.

I just have this thing with parental like love. Sirius sees Harry like he is his own and Harry loved him because he knew and loved his parents. I adore that.

There is a moment between father in daughter in the Outlander Series and makes me all gushy. *sobbs* Love it.
