We solemnly swear that we are up to no good with this week’s episode on Alfonso Cuarón’s 2004 film Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. The film marks both the book and the film franchise’s turn to the more adult themes that came to truly define the series as a whole. Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint grew up before our eyes, and the third installment seems to be when the trio really hits their stride. Their performances, as always, are buoyed by a ridiculous ensemble of British actors that would make Billy Shakes blush, but is the cast enough to make one of the more complicated of J.K. Rowling’s plots to life? The guys also pick their own personal best pranks and what their Patronus would be. Mischief managed.

We solemnly swear that we are up to no good with this week's episode on Alfonso Cuarón's 2004 film Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. The film marks both the book and the film franchise's turn to the more adult themes that came to truly define the series as a whole. Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint grew up before our eyes, and the third installment seems to be when the trio really hits their stride. Their performances, as always, are buoyed by a ridiculous ensemble of British actors that would make Billy Shakes blush, but is the cast enough to make one of the more complicated of J.K. Rowling's plots to life? The guys also pick their own personal wrongful accusations and what their Patronus would be. Mischief managed.
