Harry Potter: Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)

Sirius Black, a murderer both the Wizarding and Muggle world fear, has escaped from Azkaban prison. He is the first to have done it and no one knows how he accomplished it or where he has gone to. No one is safe, especially Harry Potter. The Ministry has decided to take certain precautions to try and protect everyone, which means that they have Dementors, the soul-sucking beings that guard Azkaban and make you feel awful, are being placed at Hogwarts and Hogsemeade. However, the Dementors don't seem to be doing their job because Sirius Black still breaks into the school and attempts to enter Gryffindor tower. Everyone fears that Black has come to murder Harry, but for reasons Harry doesn't fully understand at first.  By the end, he finds out more about Black, his father's past, and himself, which leads him to saving more than one innocent life in one night with the help of his friends.

Prisoner of Azkaban was a good film, but it could have been much better. They left out some of the best parts of the book and added some unnecessary parts instead. The film should have gone into more detail about the Marauder's Map and its makers. It was one of the most interesting and intriguing parts of the book!
