I went to watch Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban this weekend. Although I thought the movie was good, it didn't have the excitement of the previous two Harry Potter films. I found it kind of flat in different places and the whole time travel sub-plot just turned me off to the end of the movie. It's been done too many times and better than what was attempted in this movie.
They were trying to build tension by having Sirius hunt Harry, but they didn't really build much fear into what would happen if he caught him and in the end it wasn't much of a surprise that he didn't really want to harm Harry at all.
Also, they made Malfoy into a big wimp for this film. In the first two movies, he was annoying but at least he was a good antagonist to plot against Harry. In Prisoner of Azkaban, he was sent running off crying twice -- just plain weak.
The good things about this film: the Dementers were pretty cool and the Divination professor was the funniest part of the whole thing.
Oh well, hope the next movie is better...
