Newsweek Magazine has posted a review of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Calling it "The Best Harry Potter Movie Yet", the review says:
".. but Cuaron made a bold decision. He scrapped everything that didn't relate to the central theme or didn't keep the plot flying. He ditched the rich, golden tones of the previous films, replacing them with icy silvers and inky blacks. And he re-envisioned Hogwarts as a grittier, less Disney-fied place, so that the magical moments would be even more transporting. In "Azkaban," Cuaron keeps the camera moving, using very few close-ups, which adds to the eerie sense that Harry is being stalked. The result is a film that's really moving—and really moves."

Guess That Book

She looked, Harry thought, like somebody's maiden aunt: squat, with short, curly, mouse-brown hair in which she had placed a horrible pink Alice band that matched the fluffy pink cardigan she wore over her robes.
