Prisoner of Azkaban Movie Adaptation- Love It or Hate It?
Welcome to The Podcast That Must Not Be Named’s Quibbler! The Quibbler focuses on topics discussed in the most recent episode of the show, which this week was 3-22M Movie Special, in which Luke, Melissa, and first-time-reader Riley provide commentary on the Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban movie as they watch.
It was fun to listen to this episode of the show while at work, but it was even more fun to go home and sync up the movie to watch along with them. I highly recommend that method. Moving on.
Luke, Melissa, and Riley talked a lot about the differences between the movie and the book. The beginning of the film is pretty different from the beginning of the book. As Melissa pointed out, there’s no build up to Harry enlarging Aunt Marge, which changes Harry’s characterization. You don’t get to see how restrained he is for the entire visit and that it really is the last straw by the time he blows her up.
We also didn’t get to see the weeks of Harry’s summer that were spent living at The Leaky Cauldron. I know this is one of Luke’s favorite parts, and I loved it the first time I read the book. It’s so fun to experience living in the wizarding world along through Harry’s eyes. I could read an entire book of him hanging out in Diagon Alley and not even be mad.
I don’t have too many issues with the Prisoner of Azkaban movie. I think it’s gorgeous to watch and a lot of fun and pretty well adapted, considering the book is all about time travel, the most confusing sci-fi/fantasy subject ever. I’d say my biggest complaint is that the Marauder’s plot is very abbreviated and not very clear.
I don’t have too much to say in this blog, so I’d really love to hear from everyone else. What was your favorite thing about the Prisoner of Azkaban movie adaptation? What was your least favorite thing? Where does this movie rank on the list for you? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @ThePodcastThat or @NotNamedPodcast and I’ll add your thoughts to this blog!
