Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
(Warner Bros., 2004)
Teenage angst hits Potter-ville in the third installment of the magical series, and continuing the descent into darkness, introducing more scope and new characters, and lending depth and nuance to the lead characters. It was nominated again for Oscars, while beginning to win over the paltry few critics who continued to harp against the series. Audiences unimpressed with that continued to show up in droves, and it racked up another almost $800M worldwide.
