Sirius Black has escaped! One of Voldemort’s most devilish supporters, Sirius is notorious for betraying Harry’s parents, and has clawed his way out of the wizarding world’s own Gitmo in order to get his hands on Harry. Directed by Alfonso Cuaron, Prisoner of Azkaban is when the series really hits its stride. Richly visual and loaded with new goodies (Dementors! Werewolves! Time travel!), the film follows Harry – now entering his dreamy Tigerbeat phase – as he and his friends learn first-hand about the true dangers that come with being a wizard. Expecto Patronum!
