Top 5 Harry Potter Disappointments

One of the best things about the book 'The Prisoner of Azkaban' is all the new mythology and backstory.  We don't get enough of that in the movie, though I understand it would be difficult to put all of that on screen.  I think what I'm trying to say is that we didn't get enough Lupin.  Because Lupin is foxy.
As I said in my previous post about Harry Potter CGI fails, I am a huge fan of the books, but the Harry Potter movies have left me a little dissatisfied.  I’m not trying to be too nitpicky.  I understand and accept that the books and movies are two separate entities and that the books...

10. AN AMERICAN TAIL. Boy, did those mice ever have it wrong.  They were all excited about moving to America because, apparently, word on the street was that there would be no cats in America.  Maybe instead of cats, Fievel should have been more concerned about rogue waves, so that he wouldn't have been separated from his family.  Instead though, the separation gives him a once-in-a-lifetime tour of a young America, courtesy of some animal friends, both fowl and feline.  This was essential viewing back in 1986 - the animation is a little dated now, but the story is as strong as ever.
The list of films with the word “America” in the title are as varied as the citizens of this nation.  To celebrate our country’s independence and its diversity, we’ve compiled a list of essential films that range from cute to creepy, from hilarious to heart-wrenching, from stirring to sickening, but all uniquely “American.”
