Movies good, box set disappointing for the price.
on November 7, 2015
At this stage this box set is pretty poor value for all the films and very little bonus features. The eight discs come crammed into a box that is little bigger than a regular DVD and each disc has a nice printed display on them. Something that adds to the 'unfinished' feeling of this box set is that two of the titles 'Half Blood Price' and 'Deathly Hallows Pt 2' are missing the printed cover, with shiny silver DVD fronts which looks out of place and gives you the feeling they were just thrown in there from some other set.
As for the movies themselves, well, obviously they lack some of the humour and charm of the books, but overall they are pretty good. As the years go on you see the actors not only age physically, but also mature in their acting, improving the movies overall. A lot of stylistic choices disagreed with by the fans, but a great attempt to bring this popular story to the cinema. Would definitely watch again and again.
