About this deal

Of course I’ll begin by re-evaluating The Philosopher’s Stone, thirteen years after I first reviewed the DVD for this site. But it’s stuff that goes into explaining character motivations, fleshing out the plot, and it’s why I feel that the Harry Potter films work best in conjunction with the books, not by themselves.

Surround English audio, resounding, and enveloping, although this time there are a couple of moments where dialogue can be lost beneath aggressive action sequences. So we get the cinema shortcut of newspaper headlines spelling out significant plot developments and as a shorthand for the clock turning.widescreen 1080p VC-1 transfer, which looks pretty stunning for the most part, clear and sharp, good contrast and rich with detail. The Goblet of Fire' (2005) sees Harry board the train to Hogwarts School, where he will attend his fourth year of magical education.

He has Ron and Hermione’s help of course; it will be harder than anything they’ve had to do before, especially with the Death Eaters hunting them down. Year 6: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - As Lord Voldemort tightens his grip on both Muggle and wizarding worlds, Harry and Dumbledore work to find the key to unlock Voldemort's defenses. When Harry Potter learns on his eleventh birthday that he is, in fact, a wizard, he is quickly swept up into the spellbinding world of Hogwarts School of Whitchcraft and Wizardry alongside new best friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. Shortly after his reunion with Ron and Hermione, Harry is introduced to yet another Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher: the grizzled Mad-Eye Moody (Brendan Gleeson). I have to say that to my ears it actually sounds better than the Dolby TrueHD efforts that came previously, I was wholly impressed with the quality, clarity, and power of the surround audio, the niftiness of the sound design, the impact of the action sequences and the well-balanced audibility of the dialogue.Meanwhile, the sixth-formers grapple with teenage hormones as various romantic liaisons unfold between them, some more dignified than others. Year 1: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - The magical adventure begins when Harry Potter is to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. That it’s very much a visual film, one that revels in its dark and moody atmosphere, one that really paints its story on screen is an obvious plus.

Characters are introduced like Tonks and Luna Lovegood, that just don’t get the suitable development that they need, and neither do those that are revisited. At the Mall, Harry is surprised to learn that he is indeed well known and in fact famous, seems everyone knows more than he does. In 'The Prisoner of Azkaban' (2004), the trio are now in their third year of wizarding school, but there is a shadow hanging over Harry: dangerous serial killer Sirius Black (Gary Oldman) has escaped from the Wizards' prison, Azkaban - and he wants revenge for the death of his master, Voldemort, who Harry defeated 13 years earlier. You have a predominantly child cast, who you follow over eight movies, seven years of school, ten years of real time filming, and they don’t go the expected route of the child star, initial fame followed by a public crash and burn, and to the lament of many a tabloid, they still haven’t. The music once again builds on the initial world of John Williams, but there are moments here that stand out, most particularly the Weasley twins’ departure from Hogwarts.The final three films on the other hand boot to a main menu screen, and let you set-up the disc before watching the films. Plus, a complimentary commemorative Limited Edition Remembrall enamel pin from the Harry Potter Fan Club Pin Seeking collection. Incidentally, Boyhood might have picked up the Oscars, but Harry Potter did it first, and on a much larger scale.
