    Synopsis


    Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
    The best-selling novel by J.K. Rowling (titled Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in England, as was this film adaptation) becomes this hotly anticipated fantasy adventure from Chris Columbus, the winner of a high-stakes search for a director to bring the first in a hoped-for franchise of Potter films to the screen by Warner Bros. Upon his 11th birthday, Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), who lives in misery with an aunt and uncle that don't want him, learns from a giant named Hagrid (Robbie Coltrane) that he is the orphaned son of powerful wizards. Harry is offered a place at prestigious Hogwarts, a boarding school for wizards that exists in a realm of magic and fantasy outside the dreary existence of normal humans or "Muggles." At Hogwarts, Harry quickly makes new friends and begins piecing together the mystery of his parents' deaths, which appear not to have been accidental after all. The film features alternate-version scenes for every mention of the titular rock. Richard Harris, Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith, John Cleese, and Fiona Shaw co-star. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      For you diehard HP fans out there, thisbis the version to get. While you dont get the DVD version, you do get the digital and an extended version of the film both in True HD. I already have the DVD version and will just be adding to this release so I have it in all formats. You also get the same release featurettes as he DVD and then some (commentaries). Hard to beat for the price for any new comer to the series or diehard collectors/fans of the books/movies.

      Not the best, but it's fun watching it onscreen.

      Why this would get a 5 star rating I'm not sure of. I give this a 3 star rating because it's a sad attempt at re-creating the magic from the books. It's a washed down version of the book and Columbus didn't do a great job...sure it was fun seeing this on the screen after you've read the books, but the integrity of the books have been ripped apart. This is by far one of the worst of the Harry Potter films, and as the series progressed they got better...more so after the Prisoner of Azkaban, when the directors began to blend style AND substance seamlessly.

      This isn't going to be much of a review on the movie itself. It's harry potter. At this point you either like it or you don't. This is about the 4k vs bluray. I can honestly say that it's a solid upgrade from the blu-ray version. Sound is better and the image quality has definitely improved. They did a really great job on this one.

      While this is probably one of the best family films since "Toy Story," the DVD is fairly lacking in the extra features department. It is rumoured that there were many scenes filmed but not included here, as well as any substantial information on any of the sets or special effects. I mean, they create an entire world here, I'd like to know a bit how they did it. But the movie is great and the DVD is suitable until the mega-deluxe 44 disc special edition comes out on some format we haven't even heard of yet.

      I previously owned the Blu-Ray version of this movie and was really interested to see if the 4K/HDR version was really worth the upgrade to that purchase. IT WAS! With the 4K/HDR version, you will see details you've never noticed before. The subtle lighting and details in the shadows make things visible that were merely shaded over before. You won't be disappointed.

      Loved the Harry Potter movies ever since I saw this one. The mystery of what happened and the characters drew right into the story. This Blu ray looks great, sounds great and is a must own if you don't have it on blu ray yet. It also comes with a digital download so you can watch it anywhere. Great starting point to a magical adventure that I found highly entertaining and enthralling!

      If you've already seen this movie, then you know how much fun it is.if you're a fan of the books, & have yet to see the cinematic translations...you are really missing out! Wonderful roles, costumes, lighting, sets, directors & more make for a genuinely entertaining ride! As an added bonus these versions have the special feature disc as well. A full-featured blu-ray at a bargain price.

      I have previously watched the Harry Potter series on DVD and Blu-ray. I always found some of the scenes too dark to really see what was going on. Not the case with 4k Hdr. Everything about this series looks better on 4k Hdr. I highly recommend of you are a Harry Potter fan
