Buy the French Ultimate Edition if you want the extended version and documentaries on blu ray,
This review is from: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Ultimate Edition) [Blu-ray]  [US Import] (Blu-ray)
Shame on Warner Brothers UK. The Ultimate Editions in other countries have the extended edition of this film and the excellent lengthy behind the scenes documentaries on blu ray. In the UK - the home of Harry Potter, no less - we get the bog standard theatrical edition blu ray, packaged with everything else on standard definition DVDs. In effect, it's pretty much what was already available in a big box. What a stupid product.
If you want a *proper* high definition package of this film, buy it from Amazon.fr. It has English menus and doesn't even select French subtitles by default. Plus, it is the British version of the film - i.e. the title on the opening credits is "Philosopher's Stone", not "Sorceror's Stone", as in the US version. And it has the original versions of the scenes where characters refer to the stone, rather than the modified US version.
And the final bonus: IT'S CHEAPER than this rip-off, even with 2-3 day postage from France. Bargain... Amazon.fr even charges you in pounds, so you won't get stung by a conversion charge on your credit card.
