Synopsis


Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Youthful wizard Harry Potter returns to the screen in this, the second film adaptation of J.K. Rowling's wildly popular series of novels for young people. Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) and his friends Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) return for a second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where Headmaster Dumbledore (Richard Harris), Professor Snape (Alan Rickman), Professor McGonagall (Maggie Smith), and Hagrid the Giant (Robbie Coltrane) are joined by new faculty members Gilderoy Lockhart (Kenneth Branagh), a self-centered expert in Defense against the Dark Arts, and Sprout (Miriam Margolyes), who teaches Herbology. However, it isn't long before Harry and company discover something is amiss at Hogwarts: Students are petrified like statues, threats are written in blood on the walls, and a deadly monster is on the loose. It seems that someone has opened the mysterious Chamber of Secrets, letting loose the monster and all its calamitous powers. As Harry, Ron, and Hermione set out to find the secret chamber and slay the beast, speculation is rife that one of the heirs of Salazar Slytherin, the co-founder of the school, opened the chamber as a warning against the presence of "mudbloods" (magic-users of impure lineage) at the school -- and that the culprit may be fellow student Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton). Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets featured Richard Harris' second and final appearance as Headmaster Dumbledore; he died less than a month before the film was released in the United States. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2
The final adventure in the Harry Potter film series follows Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint), and Hermione (Emma Watson) as they prepare for a final battle with Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes), who is determined to destroy Harry once and for all. In order to defeat the powerful wizard, they must find and destroy Voldemort's last and most elusive Horcrux -- that is, the enchanted piece of soul allowing him to remain immortal -- before his nefarious plans come to fruition. David Yates directs. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Young wizard-in-training Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) returns to Hogwarts for his fifth year of studies, only to find that the magical community seems to be in a curious state of denial about his recent encounter with the sinister Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) in the fifth installment of the popular fantasy film series based on the best-selling books by author J.K. Rowling. Rumor has it that the dreaded Lord Voldemort has returned, but Minister for Magic Cornelius Fudge (Robert Hardy) isn't so sure what to make of all the hearsay currently floating around the campus of Hogwarts. Suspecting that Headmaster Albus Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) may be fueling the rumors regarding Voldemort's return in order to undermine his authority and lay claim to his job, Fudge entrusts newly arrived Defense Against the Dark Arts professor Dolores Umbridge (Imelda Staunton) with the task of tracking Dumbledore and keeping a protective watch over the nervous student body. The young wizards of Hogwarts will need something much more effective than Umbridge's Ministry-approved course in defensive magic if they are to truly succeed in the extraordinary battle that lies ahead, however, and when the administration fails to provide the students with the tools that they will need to defend Hogwarts against the fearsome powers of the Dark Arts, Hermione (Emma Watson), Ron (Rupert Grint), and Harry take it upon themselves to recruit a small group of students to form "Dumbledore's Army" in preparation for the ultimate supernatural showdown. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

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

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
After directing the first two movies in the Harry Potter franchise, Chris Columbus opted to serve as producer for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and passed the baton to Y Tu Mamá También director Alfonso Cuarón. Though "immensely popular" is an understatement when it comes to Harry Potter, Azkaban is somewhat of a departure from its predecessors, and particularly beloved among fans for its surprise ending. Prisoner of Azkaban also marks the introduction of Sirius Black (Gary Oldman), who has escaped from the title prison after 12 years of incarceration. Believed to have been the right-hand-man of the dark wizard Voldemort, whom Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) mysteriously rendered powerless during his infancy, some of those closest to Harry suspect Black has returned to exact revenge on the boy who defeated his master. Upon his return to school, however, Harry is relatively unconcerned with Black. Run by Albus Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) -- who is widely regarded as the most powerful wizard of the age -- Hogwarts is renowned for its safety. Harry's nonchalance eventually turns to blind rage after accidentally learning the first of Black's many secrets during a field trip to a neighboring village. Of course, a loose serial killer is only one of the problems plaguing the bespectacled wizard's third year back at school -- the soul-sucking guards of Azkaban prison have been employed at Hogwarts to protect the students, but their mere presence sends Harry into crippling fainting spells. With the help of his friends Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson), and Defense Against the Dark Arts professor Remus Lupin (David Thewlis), Harry struggles to thwart the Dementors, find Sirius Black, and uncover the mysteries of the night that left him orphaned. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Directed by Mike Newell, the fourth installment to the Harry Potter series finds Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) wondering why his legendary scar -- the famous result of a death curse gone wrong -- is aching in pain, and perhaps even causing mysterious visions. Before he can think too much about it, however, Harry boards 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 (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson), Harry is introduced to yet another Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher: the grizzled Mad-Eye Moody (Brendan Gleeson), a former dark wizard catcher who agreed to take on the infamous "DADA" professorship as a personal favor to Headmaster Dumbledore (Michael Gambon). 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 skillfully with a thousand-galleon purse and the admiration of the international wizard community. As difficult as it is to deal with his schoolwork, friendships, and the tournament at the same time (not to mention his feelings toward the ever unfathomable Professor Snape (Alan Rickman), Harry doesn't realize that the most feared wizard in the world, Lord Voldemort, is anticipating the tournament, as well. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Adolescent wizard-in-training Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts for another year of schooling and learns more about the dark past of the boy who grew up to become Lord Voldemort in this, the sixth installment of the film series that originated from the writings of author J.K. Rowling. There was a time when Hogwarts was thought of as a safe haven, but thanks to Voldemort's tightening grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds, that simply isn't the case anymore. Suspecting that the castle may even harbor an outright threat, Harry finds his investigation into the matter sidelined by Dumbledore's attempts to prepare him for the monumental battle looming ever closer on the horizon. In order to discover the key to Voldemort's defenses, Dumbledore enlists the aid of resourceful yet unsuspecting bon vivant Professor Horace Slughorn, who may have a clue as to their enemy's Achilles' heel. Meanwhile, teenage hormones cause the students at Hogwarts to lose focus on their true mission. As Harry and Dean Thomas clash for the affections of the lovely Ginny, Romilda Vane attempts to woo Ron away from Lavender Brown with some particularly tasty chocolates. Even Hermione isn't immune from the love bug, though she tries her hardest to suppress her growing jealousy and keep her emotions bottled up. But there is one student who remains completely aloof from the romance blossoming all around, and he intends to leave a dark impression on his classmates. With tragedy looming ever closer, it begins to appear as if peace will prove elusive in Hogwarts for some time to come. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1
The first installment of the two-film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows follows Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint), and Hermione (Emma Watson) as they search for the pieces of Voldemort's (Ralph Fiennes) soul that he extracted from his being and hid in obscure locations both far and wide. If the trio is unable to locate and destroy them all, Voldemort will remain immortal. Despite their long friendship, a combination of dark forces, romantic tensions, and long-held secrets threaten to sabotage the mission. David Yates directs. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

    Nice movie series, poor "quality" on the Blu-Ray

    You know the movies -- has anyone in the known universe really not seen them? -- so this review is about the quality of the Blu-Ray "Complete Collection Years 1-7 (8pc)", not a critique of the movie itself (if you are looking for a critique, stop reading now and move on to the next review :-) ). The short review of this Blu-Ray collection is it doesn't work. 4 of the 8 disks simply would not load into my higher end Blu-Ray player (a Sony BDP-BX2). The other 4 loaded fine, and I have no problems with any other Blu-Ray or DVD disks loading in the machine. Yes, I'm sure I could bring the Blu-Ray collection back to Best Buy and beg for an exchange, but I simply shouldn't have to. And since I've had them for about 2 months (didn't try to play them until recently) and have no receipt, my guess is Best Buy won't exchange them anyway. In fairness to them, they wouldn't have any idea if I really bought them from Best Buy or not. So I'm pretty much stuck... As for the other 4 disks -- the ones that work -- the Blu-Rays didn't show any perceptible difference in picture quality over the DVDs that we already had. Not disappointing, just not that much better. Sorry, but I'm just not that impressed with this collection, and wouldn't really recommend it to anyone.

    The Harry Potter series of novels was a rich, beautifully written story that touched hearts, broke them, and changed innumerable lives. So why was it so hard to turn these adventures into a series of films? Well, because they had to be adapted by humans, and humans have flaws. Sure, we all felt we could have written better adaptations of this material. But, when push comes to shove, could we? Enough apologizing for the filmmakers. What we have are eight films - almost eighteen and a half hours of film - that do what they set out to do: they tell us the story of Harry Potter, and his rise from a banal life as an orphan living under the stairs of his evil aunt and uncle's home in England and his transformation into one of the most powerful wizards of all time. Rich performances are given by Daniel Radcliff as Harry, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint as his wizarding friends as Hermione and Ron, and a faculty of instructors including Michael Gambon, Maggie Smith, Alan Rickman, Robbie Coltrane, and Ralph Fiennes as the most feared wizard of all time, Lord Voldemort. So quit complaining that this plot was changed here and this person was left out there, and just sit back and let the directors (Chris Columbus, Alphonso Cuaron, Mike Newell, and David Yates), writers, and cast transport you to a world where you can banish your fears with those two simple words: "Expecto patronum!"

    Bluray great, but casing cheap and intros annoying

    I am very happy with having this set on Bluray, as the video quality is exceptional and there are loads of extra features on each disc, and the price can't be beat. However, sometimes the audio backs off. (I prefer it when disc-makers do NOT use limiters to bring the volume back during loud segments, especially with Bluray.) Also, the case these discs came in quickly broke one of the tabs that keep it closed, so the case is less well-made than other cases of discs I have purchased. Also, the first four movies start straight away without first going to the menu (which I find annoying, since I need to set the captions to ON for my mother), and the last three movies FORCE you to watch advertising before the movie starts and prohibit the ability to skip the ads (using ANY of the standard Bluray player menu buttons) and jump directly to the disc menu. Despite the caveats, I still recommend it because of the overall value.

    Great Series to Have in a Movie Collection

    Posted
    Merker

    This set contains ALL Harry Potter Movies on blu-ray (Years 1-7) Great buy for the complete series (All HP movies for $79.99). Normally it would be $10 & up for the first 6 movies and $20 and up for the last 2.It is a great buy for $79.99 *Great picture quality and sound quality for all the movies (The 1st one was a little mehh,) *Loads of features on all discs (deleted scenes,making of, etc) Only negative thing about this set was the auto play straight into the movie. Would have liked a main menu to decide to check features and what not. Other than that, I am happy about the set. It is Harry Potter so it is self explanatory. Good plot,characters, and overall feel. A MUST have in any collection.

    Great Harry Potter Set

    I had only watched the first two movies when they were first released in the theaters. I always found the movies interesting, but for some reason or another I never saw the complete set. I went to BestBuy with my daughter for something completely different and ended up leaving with this set. We ended up binge watching the complete set in 2 days and my daughter really enjoyed them as did my wife and I. I was glad I purchased this set as I was finally able to finish watching all 8 movies. We are a bit disappointed that we finished all films, but will now be able to relive the story again and again with this BluRay set. If you're a fan of the films, you need to have this in your collection.

    Collection wise; if you are someone who only cares about having the movies, then this is probably the best way to own it. On the other hand if you are a huge fan who wants all the bonus material, behind the scenes etc. you might be disappointed to find out that some of the movies don't come with the special features. A few of the discs even look like they were pulled out of cases and say disc 1 and can tell "disc 2" which you don't get here has all the bonus features. Even though this is the best way/price to get all 8 films in one shot, at the asked retail price of usually 65.00 would expect bonus material. On sale for 45.00 felt like the perfect price for what you get here.

    Excellent set for a great price

    I bought this box set of the Harry Potter movies on the Best Buy website. I wanted all the movies in one set, so that I didn't have 8 more whole cases taking up space on my shelves, so the condensed single box these came in was great. The price for this set was excellent, on sale for $85 for all 8 Blu-ray discs, and with my Reward Zone points I had saved up I was able to save a little more on them, too. The only downsides for me are that there aren't many extras on the discs and that the individual movies may be from different original sets, but if I really cared that much about them (or you do) there are, of course, other complete sets with more options. If you just want the movies and less fluff, this is a great deal!

    This collection of all eight Harry Potter movies is just that - all the movies. Which is a great deal if you don't own many of the movies and just want the movies, but true collectors should shy away from this set since it falls short with extra content. More specifically, it's pretty clear that these disks were just copied from other, more complete sets - most blatantly, the Half-Blood Prince even has "Disk 1" printed on it - and since these are long movies, they don't have much on them besides the movie itself and a couple of short bonus scenes (no commentary, for instance). So all in all, a bit disappointing, but still a good deal.
