Love the Harry Potter films. This bluray set has a lot of faulty packages thought so beware! The first one I bought from Amazon had only 5 films, one was missing. The replacement shrink-wrapped set they sent had 2 films missing, and extra copies of two films. Finally, the third package was OK. So do check the right discs are there when it arrives!!!

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 24 October 2014
Reviewing a 6 film box set is difficult so I won’t dwell on the storylines which are best found under their individual titles. The set itself contains the first 6 films in the franchise and the three slipcases contain two discs each holding one film apiece. These are housed in a relatively sturdy outer card box that is open at the front.
The box set numbers the discs according to Harry’ school years, since each film actually takes place in a differing school year as the main actors age throughout the series –it’s a novel approach that works. The films are very much aimed at the year group the film is centred on, and as you progress so the action darkens and themes become more ‘grown up’. The discs themselves are basic bare bones. All have much the same sparse features, play, scene selection and languages [which will disappoint many as its basically English sound and English or Arabic subtitles. In general the films get better with each new year.
For those unfamiliar with the stories, here’s a basic lowdown;
Year 1 HP & the Philosophers Stone: The disc opens with a choice of play, special features which is merely a cast listing and two theatrical trailers, scene selection and languages [English, the choice being with subtitles, or Arabic? subtitles,] Basically a young Harry discovers he’s actually born with magic and whisked of to an alternate dimension/reality and into a special school of wizardry. This plays and sounds in many places like Star Wars and is definitely aimed at the early pre teen groups, but desperately tries to cater for a wider age range. This has not aged particularly well as the novelty of the story [and hype] has died down. It’s well acted by the young cast and still holds the attention but lacks the darker edge of the later movies. It’s success is probably down to the special effects which lift it from the mediocre.
Year 2 HP & the Chamber of Secrets: The disc opens with much the same features as the first, but one trailer is actually a recap of the first film. A good enough storyline where the three main characters try to discover a hidden chamber, but it runs very much like the first. A few interesting characters are thrown into the mix but is more likely to appeal to pre or young teens than a more adult audience [unless you have grown up with these movies].
Year 3 HP & the Prizoner of Azkaban: So the three are growing up in their third year at the school. This also sees the films adopt a more Dr Who feel to them and they also become more darker in nature. The question is, Is the bad guy really the bad guy or is there more to it?
Year 4 HP & the Goblet of Fire. language selection same as last disc. At the Quidditch World Cup, Death Eaters destroy the encampment and back at Hogwarts, Harry is selected by the Goblet of Fire to be in the school Champion tryouts. Will Harry be selected to represent his school and can the Death Eaters [those who want to keep the wizard bloodlines pure] be stopped?
Year 5 HP & the order of the Phoenix. The Order was created before the first instalment to counter Voldermort and the Death Eaters. Amongst other things the Ministry of magic takes over the running of Hogwarts as Voldermort undermines Harry.
Year 6 HP & the Half blood Prince is a real pain to load as it features over 15 minutes of adverts before you go to scene select. And it’s almost 20 minutes before you’re into the film. Basically Harry find a spell book that belonged to the half blood Prince. But who is it? And whose trying to destroy Harry?
Overall an excellent box set but decidedly aimed at teenagers and adults who ‘grew up’ alongside the characters as the films were released. For those approaching the series now, it will probably not have the same ‘pull’ to it and the early episodes might be off –putting to older viewers as they are more pre-teen orientated. The 12 year rating is well deserved as younger viewers might find it all ‘too real’. Despite it’s flaws the acting and special effects still enthral and keep this a solid **** rating.

What a way to watch these films on the small screen - in glorious Blu-Ray!

I'm not going to review the movies as if you're even considering purchasing this you're already a fan!

Quality:
The first film is the only one which suffers from an average transfer, in my opinion. As the films progress the quality excels expectations. 'Order of the Phoenix' and 'Half-Blood Prince' are spectacular to behold and a joy to watch. The 1080p is crisp, fluid and never falters from the second film onwards and the special effects stun to the last second.
The other noticeable difference between the DVD and Blu-Ray transfers is that there is so much detail that you can feel the coldness of the brick in Hogwarts, for example.

The audio is excellent too. Plenty of options for purists but for people like me there's a handy little Dolby Digital 5.1 track on each movie that sounds amazing!

Extras:
Plenty of behind the scenes extras for each film. Interviews, special effects featurettes, the usual stuff. 'Half-Blood Prince' has a second disc chock full of special features, making ofs and interviews. A bonus being a featurette including clips from the forthcoming 'Deathly Hallows' films.

All in all and excellent purchase. Superb films for a Friday night, excellent ranging to stunning quality and amazing value into the bargain.

What are you waiting for Potter fans?

Wow! Amazed by this blu-ray collection! I really am:) First of all let me say I didn't use to be a Harry Potter fan until I have started to watch these wonderful fantasy-adventure movies. Then slowly my interest started to grow and it reached its peak, meaning the point I am now. I've collected the first four movies in DVD special edition until this box was bought...Purely incidental it was. Harry Potter is made for Blu-ray and I have to recognize that with new technological experience these movies are more and more growing in my soul. Harry Potter and the Half Blooded Prince seems to be the best and probably what's to come is the ,,epic" we were expecting for so long. Nevertheless all these movies are each a treasure even for us grown ups. The price I paid for this box was a truly bargain. If you don't own Harry Potter on Blu ray, buy it now! No Regrets, 100% guarantee! The special features are present on every disc as one should expect in a huge amount amount of extra minutes, most of them in HD, only partially in normal definition.

Fantastic to have all 6 films together and fantastic idea on how putting 2 films in the same case to make them compact. Harry Potter is one of my favorite film series that i could watch over and over again. The discs are very good quality. I wish other movies would have the same idea and put 2 discs in 1 case sometimes its too much to have keep opening replacing the disc and then closing the case to get another film out. This is a great idea

Delivers as promised -- Harry Potter in high-def! Royal Mail did a splendid job delivering in a speedy fashion. No issues with VAT or local taxes. Would highly recommend buying from amazon.co.uk in the future.

This box set is amazing value. All of the first 6 films in one box, and all for the cost of one visit to the cinema. Who doesn't want to watch these films over and over again? Well now you can. A really great buy of some of the best, action-packed stories around. Well worth buying.

In short, a very good deal. A really brilliant price for all the current Harry Potter Movies without paying for any bells and whistles. I'm not someone who ever really watches the hours of extras that accompany many movies, so not having to pay for them and only get what I want, is in my opinion a really good deal.
