Rolling Stone: JKRowling Interview on PoA DVD is Best Surprise
Nov 13, 2004
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.
