Steve Kloves served as a screenwriter on seven of the eight 'Harry Potter' movies, so he has experience penning good adaptations (“Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”), and not so good adaptations (“Harry Potter and the Philsopher’s/Sorcerer’s Stone”). Okay, maybe that’s not the fairest of assessments as the quality of the 'Potter' films seemed to hang on how well the directors interpreted the scripts, which remained consistently decent throughout. Although, perhaps the franchise’s greatest achievement from a screenplay perspective was turning the rather dull fifth book into one of the most enjoyable films in the series…and that was the one script written by Michael Goldenberg. But then he went and wrote (alongside a plethora of hacks) “Green Lantern,” so it’s all relative, we guess.
