Author JK Rowling created a bonanza of a book series/franchise with her Harry Potter coming-of-age creation.It submerges the reader/viewer into a fantastical world of wizards and witches;some good,some very bad.Each installment provides us with a glimpse of Harry growing up before our eyes as he attends each successive year the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry.With close friends Hermione and Ron we see the trio thrown into ever increasing dangerous events all leading up to a grand battle with the evil that killed Harry's parents,Tom Riddle/Lord Voldemort.The movies have made overnight stars of its' leading thesps,Daniel Radcliffe,Emma Watson and Rupert Grint.
In the movies we come to understand what a house elf is,a phoenix,a basilisk,dementors,how to play Quidditch and we are introduced to such fascinating characters as Prof.Dumbledore,Sirius Black,Hagrid,the Weasley family,the Malfoys,Prof.Snape,and so many other just as important players.Some of the more well known actors to appear are Robbie Coltrane,Richard Harris,Richard Fiennes,Gary Oldman,Michael Gambon and Maggie Smith.Read more ›
The discs for the first 4 or 5 (can't remember) movies don't have a title menu or anything, they just fire up right into the beginning of the movie which is nice. We didn't have to skip through endless previews or gov't warnings to get the movie started.
Samsung 47" 1080p LCD (60 Hz)
PS3 for Blu-Ray playback (HDMI to TV, Optical for Audio)
Marantz receiver w/ 5.1 audio configuration.
The first 5 movies are very straight forward conversions, not a lot of extra stuff to go with them. Movies will auto play from the beginning, rather than having a Title menu to interact with. Order of the Phoenix is a 2 disc set, and has some extras to is.
Visuals are 5/5 for the last few movies, 4.5/5 for the first 2 or 3. Some of the dark scenes have bad film grain and a tiny bit of artifacting.
Audio is 4.5/5 across the board, with a few scenes being very quiet voices during conversation and the background music being too loud over top. Acceptable, but just annoying to fiddle with volume once a movie.
I'd highly recommend the boxed set as an upgrade, then get the next two *sigh* movies as they arrive.
