Product Description

The first five films of the hugely popular 'Harry Potter' franchise. 'The Philosopher's Stone' (2001) sees Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) newly enrolled at Hogwarts School with his chums Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint). When the trio have a surprise encounter with a three-headed dog guarding a secret trapdoor, they begin to suspect that something important might be hidden beneath the school, and when they investigate it leads to an encounter with the evil wizard Voldemort (Ian Hart). Will Harry be able to keep up with his studies, lead his team to victory in the school sport Quidditch, and still triumph over the dreaded Voldemort? In 'The Chamber of Secrets' (2002), Harry (Radcliffe) and his friends Hermione (Watson) and Ron (Grint) return to Hogwarts School of Witchery and Wizardry for their second year. Gilderoy Lockhart (Kenneth Branagh) and Sprout (Miriam Margoyles) have joined the staff and Harry and friends soon find that once again all is not right at the school - pupils seem to be petrified, literally, and a monster is on the loose. In 'The Prisoner of Azkaban' (2004), Harry (Radcliffe), Ron (Grint) and Hermione (Watson) have returned to Hogwarts for their third year, but there is a shadow hanging over Harry: dangerous serial killer Sirius Black (Gary Oldman) has escaped from the Wizards' prison, the Azkaban Fortress - and he wants revenge for the death of his master, Voldemort, who Harry defeated 13 years earlier. For Harry's protection, Azkaban has sent an army of soul-sucking Dementors to guard Hogwarts from a possible attack by Black - but they turn out to be as much of a threat to Harry as Black himself. As myth, magic and teenage hormones combine to weave their dark spell, Harry uncovers a few more crucial secrets about his mysterious past. 'The Goblet of Fire' (2005) sees Harry (Radcliffe) board the train to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where he will attend his fourth year of magical education. Shortly after his reunion with his best friends, Ron (Grint) and Hermione (Watson), Harry is introduced to yet another Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher: the grizzled Mad-Eye Moody (Brendan Gleeson). Of course, Harry's wishes for an uneventful school year are almost immediately shattered when he is unexpectedly chosen, along with fellow student Cedric Diggory (Robert Pattinson), as Hogwarts' representative in the Tri-Wizard Tournament, which awards whoever completes three magical tasks the most skilfully with a thousand-galleon purse and the admiration of the international wizard community. Finally in 'The Order of the Phoenix' (2007) Harry (Radcliffe) returns for his fifth year of study at Hogwarts and discovers that much of the wizarding community has been denied the truth about his recent encounter with the evil Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes). Fearing that Hogwarts' venerable Headmaster, Albus Dumbledore (Michael Gambon), is lying about Voldemort's return in order to undermine his power and take his job, the Minister for Magic, Cornelius Fudge (Robert Hardy), appoints a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher to keep watch over Dumbledore and the Hogwarts students. But Professor Dolores Umbridge's (Imelda Staunton) Ministry-approved course of defensive magic leaves the young wizards woefully unprepared to defend themselves against the dark forces threatening them and the entire wizarding community, so at the prompting of his friends Hermione (Watson) and Ron (Grint), Harry takes matters into his own hands. Meeting secretly with a small group of students who name themselves 'Dumbledore's Army,' Harry teaches them how to defend themselves against the Dark Arts, preparing the courageous young wizards for the extraordinary battle that lies ahead.

Year 2 - Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets:
Cars fly, trees fight back and a mysterious house-elf comes to warn Harry Potter at the start of his second year of a danger that may threaten his life. The Chamber of Secrets reopens and the heir of Slitherin returns to Hogwarts.

Year 3: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban:
With the escaped criminal, Sirius Black on the loose and terrifying Dementors on guard everywhere, this begins Harry's darkest and most dangerous year at Hogwarts.

Year 4: Harry Potter and the Goblet Of Fire:
When Harry Potter's name emerges from the Goblet of Fire, he becomes a competitor in a grueling battle for glory among three wizarding schools - the Triwizard Tournament.

5.0 out of 5 stars There's nothing wrong with the picture quality 4 Jun 2009
By Film Buff VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I've owned these films on HD-DVD in the past and now I own them on Blu-ray and they look fantastic in HD. The first film is a huge upgrade from the standard DVD in terms of picture and sound. The rest of the movies have the same great picture quality too. Ok, they gradually improve in picture quality as they go along BUT...there's hardly any difference between HP1 and HP5. If some of the reviewers can't tell a difference then maybe they should get their equipment checked? Either that or they have unrealistic ideas of what HD is supposed to be. Picture quality 4/5 Sound 4/5 Must own at this price which is 9 a film! Check the HDDigest review - they rate the picture quality of these films.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harry Potter - The Best Versions 4 July 2009
By AD
Format:Blu-ray
I think a little perspective is needed, having read some of the negative reviews & personally I like to buy the best product/medium that is available - not for all films, but the one's hand picked that I particularily enjoy.

The Harry Potter series has always been a joy to watch & the first few are invariably older in terms of modern day cinegraphic techniques.

However, I don't sit & evaluate every pixel & compare every frame, because it would not only detract from my enjoyment (& attention), but I would also be missing the point.

Blu Ray is the best medium currently available & the picture & sound are the best that can be produced from the original format, despite what techinical "limitations" there were on original production.

All the films are far superior to their ordinary DVD counterparts & I would thoroughly reccommend this box set.

So relax.......and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Harry Potter in HD - What's not to like? 18 May 2010
Format:HD DVD
Well worth buying if you are a Potter fan, have an HD DVD player and can find a copy. The transfers of all the movies are done very well - they look and sound superb in HD. The boxed set itself is very nice, presented in a fun manner for kids and containing various extras, such as postcards and the like. An extra disc of special features exclusive to the box rounds it out nicely.

4.0 out of 5 stars Modern classics, good value for money. 6 Aug 2009
Format:DVD
Much cheaper than buying them individually and you get the same experience, except for the lack of special features. Personally I'm not fussed about that, its not something I'm prepared to pay more for, however if like all that behind the scenes stuff then perhaps this is not the product for you. Still excellent value for money, considering you're getting 5 blockbuster films for 14.68. Highly entertaining modern classics that people of all ages can enjoy, parents will sit down to watch it with their kids and find themselves getting sucked in! If you like the films you'll love the books.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Unfortunate Disappointment 8 Jan 2009
By Carl Spencer TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The Harry Potter blu-ray set was one of the first DVDs I ordered when I bought my blu-ray player a couple of weeks ago because I'm a manic Potter fan and couldn't wait to see the films in HD brilliance.

Unfortunately, like a fellow reviewer, I have been left disappointed. Films one and two, the oldest in the series, look no different to their normal counterparts - the picture is just as grainy and dull and theres no hugely noticeable difference in the sound. Films three and four are a little better - the sound is good and the active scenes do look good but still lack real blu-ray colour, vibrance and detail. Goblet of Fire is particularly dark and dull in places.

Order of the Phoenix, the most recent film, is the only one which looks like a true blu-ray film rather than a plain DVD slapped with a special sticker. The picture is incredibly crisp and colourful and the sound is much clearer than the normal counterpart - the picture perfect example of what the other four films should have been.

My recommendation is simple - buy the blu-ray Order of the Phoenix ASAP as it is magnificent - but don't rest too many hopes on the quality of the others.
