August 12 THE IRON GIANT (Brad Bird, 1999) One of the most thoughtful animated fables in the American canon, this Cold War-set, Ted Hughes-derived tale about an inexplicable defense-reflex robot and a (naturally) fatherless boy has, at least, a stirring final 10 minutes that erase memory of decades of Disney. ATKINSON

August 19SHARK TALE(Bibo Bergeron, Vickey Jenson & Rob Letterman, 2004)

August 26HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN(Alfonso Cuarón, 2004) The Hogwarts territory being familiar, well-trod, and surprise-free, Cuarón's mild upkick in pacing and texture makes this the best of a lumbering franchise; the consults to Mike Leigh's Rolodex only help as well. ATKINSON
