I think Cuaron's ways of directing are perfectly fitting for this franchise. He gives it a darker spin while upping the magical feeling of the world. Its definitely the best one so far but I just feel like some characters had very little to them and story is kinda weak. I wish Cuaron remained for ones that came after this, but I guess he wouldnt have done Children of men so maybe him just turning this franchise around and giving the helm to Newell and then Yates was the best of both worlds. Emma Watson's acting is comically bad in this one in particular.
