The movies aren't the same as Rowling's books.
they were celebrating his 500th birthday?
i havent read the books but, i would guess nick was somewere in his 50's or older so if they were celebrating his b-day not his death day i would figure the story with his 500th birthday took place in the 40's or so.
Clayton, out of curiosity, where can one find this information?
Having not read the books, I got the distinct feeling that James Potter's shape was a deer...either that or they were ripping off Miyasaki's Mononoke Hine.
That Harry thought he saw his father, and then it turnned out the way it did, I was able to put those two together...didn't seem like it needed to be said.
just my $0.02
Is the flash frame a new copy protection tool (it better not be since we're having to deal with this annoyinng CAPS coding on film negatives now), or is there some sort of significance to "302?"
Nice indepth review. A must purchase for me
"Having not read the books, I got the distinct feeling that James Potter's shape was a deer..." How would you know that James Potter has a shape of any kind, since it is never mentioned in the film, not one single time? You can't ask an audience to connect the dots if you don't give them the dots in the first place.
Someone above said they are saving this information for the fourth film, which makes less sense the more I think about it. That info really has nothing to do with Goblet of Fire.
Good review. I've never read the books but my friends got me to watch the HP movies. I liked HP3 the most so this will be the first of the 3 that I purchase.

Thank You for the info!
I wouldn't be suprised at all if this was the next step. Is anything sacred anymore?
Thanks for the great review!
Oh, boy. My hidden number is 301. I must say that was pretty distracting and obvious.
Heres a look:
hmm, different numbers, wonder what it is.
well THIS is interesting. I'll be looking to see what doofy little number I get when I pick the disc up today.
Seriously, this "We must destroy the movies in order to save them" stuff is starting to get really REALLY ridiculous and irritating.
Also--the setting of the Harry Potter books is in the mid to late nineties somewhere--at least one of those books specifically mentions a Sony Playstation.
And I haven't seen this movie yet, but
leaving out the fact that James is an animagi kinda kneecaps one of the major hooks of the book, doesn't it?
Should be interesting to see how this movie goes with that whole subplot basically chopped out.
I like the movie a great deal. Unlike others, I can't really rank one HP movie over any of the others. They're all sort of equal in my eyes, with their own merits and debits. Azkaban is the best acted and has the best visual f/x but it feels choppy -- like "Greatest Hits from The Prisoner of Azkaban". The other HP films were 3 hrs. long and lack some of the visual poetry of Cuaron, but on the other hand they felt like complete stories with nothing missing (even though book fans know differently). Still, well worth anyone's time. Very lush and interesting film.
The movie moved outrageously fast which helped it IMHO. The movie is long on time and it gets a lot done in that time. You almost wished they had included more which is rare with a movie of this length.
I was hoping for an extra hour on the DVD. My daughter who loves the books swears that will happen in the next SE release of Azkaban.
Nothing "extra" was shot, as in deleted scenes that could be added back.
There are numerous deleted scenes featured on Disc Two, some of which featuring unfinished blue-screen f/x and wire work. Go to the "Divination" section. Nothing amazing, all of them are very brief, and there is no mention of the identities of Mooney, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs.
I've got the same "301" stamped onto my copy of the DVD. I don't know if it's an error or some sort of copyright stamp but it's annoying.
Herb, is there a way you could contact WB and see what's going on with the numbers popping up on the screen? If this is a new form of copy protection, it's just sad...
