Sandrine Sahakians

Sandrine has been a film lover for as long as she can remember. From actions films to rom com to indies, Sandrine pretty much enjoys every type of films, apart from horror movies. She’s always on the lookout for great films suggestions and is open to try anything… that is except for horror films ;)

    I really enjoyed the third movie, but compared to the novel I was very disappointed. I love the way they it expanded the scene with aunt marge and showed her floating into the air, and the way it gave depth to the knight bus trip. However, I wish it would have expanded his time in Diagon Alley especially with Florean Fortescue because I think it would have helped the 6th/7th books/movies show the seriousness of many of the businesses clear out and how it affects Harry personally.
    I also love the actor playing professor Lupin, (not sure of his name), I just think that he embodies the character very well, but I dislike how quickly the movie shows Harry procuring the Patronus. It makes it appear as though he almost masters it in his first day of trying.
    I am also glad that the director spent a large portion of the movie on the ending scenes beginning with the trip to Hagrid’s for Buckbeak’s scheduled demise. They took the time to explain a large part of it. But I still had questions from my husband who has never read the series about what was going on, because there is no way everything can be covered.

    Oh and I would have to say my favorie scene would have to be the night bus trip, followed by the dementor attack at the quidditch field. 😀

    The new director did a great job with the changing of the seasons. I loved it and he did a great job making the movie his own while staying true to the book. One of favorite scenes in this movie was when Harry was under his cloak and was scaring Draco and his gang with snow balls and pull down paints and just confirming the pace was haunted. One of the sceans I wish they had included was the reason why Professor Lupin knew how the marauders map worked and explains who the creators were.

    This movie is great with the casting of Sirius Black, Gary Oldman does a wonderful job. The shocking scene in the shack with Scabbers finally revealed to be Peter Pettigrew is as riveting as it is in the book! The main leads did a wonderful job as usual. Loved the night bus with the shrunken head, some frivolous fun!

    The Time-Turner scene was great! Seeing Harry and Hermione watching themselves and the things that they already did was really cool!
