TLC Reader Christophers let us know that Rolling Stone Magazine has posted their list of the year's best DVDs and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is ranked #9. In the Nov. 25th issue of the magazine, Peter Travers says that the "the interview with author J.K. Rowling is the no-bull surprise."

9. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

The best of the three Potter films to date -- thanks to the dark magic of director Alfonso Cuaron -- is also the best DVD. The first two films were slogs due to the candy-bright view of director Chris Columbus. Cuaron works in the shadows, where mystery, sex and trauma do their mischief. The crisp transfer catches what goes bump in the night.

Extras: There are interactive challenges for the kids. But the interview with author J.K. Rowling is the no-bull surprise.

Killer Scene: It won't be just kids who get nightmares from the attack of the killer tree. And poor Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), who thinks a prisoner (Gary Oldman) is the key to his parents' murder, is in for a shock from soul-sucking creatures called Dementors.
