A perfect piece of storytelling that surpasses its predecessors in every category. The music is better, the special effects more convincing (impeccable, really), the story is tighter, the laughs are funnier and the joy is more heartfelt. Even the closing credits are superior. Cuaron's direction is bold, putting his individual flair into the film while remaining absolutely true to Rowling's world.

Finally. In the first two movies, even though I thought each was solid, I found some of the changes rather odd, and the movies were a bit too hesitant, falling back on the source material instead of willing to take risks. This is by far the best of the series so far; every choice is bold, the movie feels much more alive and confident in itself than the others do. Across the board, everything is better - even the performances by the actors. It's really astounding. Nice job, Cuaron.

A superior Potter. Cuaron's grasp of visuals and mood are leagues beyond the first two films; Hogwarts feels a lot less like a soundstage and a lot more like an enchanted castle. Alan Rickman and Gary Oldman are of course gods. My only problem is actually the fault of J.K. Rowling: I really, really dislike the incorporation of time travel into the Potter universe. Plot hole city. Still, the film series' high point thus far.

The first two films were too childlike and kid focused for me. So it's awesome that Alfonso Cuaron came onboard and made this a brooding coming-of-age story that matured along the with intended audience. I still think that the villains don't approach James Bond or Batman levels in terms of presenting an ideal conflict for Harry. But it looks cool and has some fun with time travel. Recommended. And it serves as an intriguing reboot as the franchise becomes darker from here on.

A marked improvement over the first two entries. Despite the omission of some significant plot points from the book (the identities of the Marauders, why Harry's patronus is a stag), this is the first time the HP movies really felt magical.
