Movies 2007 #53 Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Full Screen Edition)

A nice, after-thanksgiving treat for the whole family.

I got an interesting thing out of last night’s viewing. For my money, the scene where Harry casts the Patronus charm to save himself and Sirius is the best moment in all of the movies so far, and just might be the coolest single moment in all the books. It seems like the pivot around which the series revolves in some ways. At least in terms of the idea of Harry-as-a-great-wizard. His earlier exploits were all based on luck and courage. This? This is a powerful spell cast against a slew of powerful opponents. Pretty cool.
