Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban from a rat's perspective

Well, I finally broke down and saw it.

First off, let me say how disgusted I was when reading the book on discovering Scabbers was evil. There are so few positive role models for rats in the mainstream media, that we tend to clutch at straws.

I would however suggest that everyone keep an eye on that rat in the last book.

Also worth mentioning was Professor Lupin. A lot of subtlety and ambiguity surrounding this character was unfortunately cut to fit in the movie's time frame, but he looked gorgeous as a werewolf! Still scary and menacing, but also graceful and elegant, and he walked as comfortably on four legs as he does on two.

There's more I could say, but these were the two most important bits.
