    Because some people are cheap and don't care about special features. Me I was the most for my money. I want the works: documentaries, visual campaigns, tv spots, commentaries galore.

    Potter hasn't been the best for special features, but you still get you money's worth for a 2-disc at 19.99 or cheaper.

    They'll actually have special features this time, right? An in-depth "Making of ..." feature is what I'm looking for.

    Are any of those described as being an actual 'Making of ...' that encompasses the entire movie?

    Upon looking at it, it looks like there are a bunch of mini featurettes that cover the making of the different segments.

    Still sounds better than the previous DVD's. I too would like something along the lines of "The Beginning" documentary with the Harry Potter films, and lose the stupid games. That, and a commentary would rule :D

    There are some brief clips of different documentaries at Mugglenet.com.

    I still got it at my dollar theater, but now I'm saying what's the use since the DVD is only 8 days away. Still it has to keep #2 Domestic of 05, though the gap is tightening.

    I've never listened to the commentary of a HP movie. Mainly because I don't have time to. I'm excited to listen to GoF's commentary though. Commentary is underrated.

    My HP movies don't have commentaries. [face_worried]

    Well no wonder I never listened to them then. :p

    Seriously, none of them have commentary?

    Neither does GOF, which pretty much sucks. A Mike Newell/JKR commentary track wouldn't be bad. I'm not sure if I can listen to Dan Rupert and Emma explaining everything for 2 hours. I'd rather have a more analytical commentary. Maybe come 2011 they'll do a massive commentary.

    That really is a shock. That's something I always assumed was with the HP Discs. You can bet they will re-release the series in a box set once all the movies have come out. You can also bet they'll have more features on those.

    Exactly. Plus there's Blu-Ray, HD-DVD, HVD to upgrade to. In a perfect world, we'd have something like NL did with the LOTR EE's four seperate commentaries. Plus the kid's be more mature and you'll get some more insightful discussion out of them. Also Jo will be able to put everything into perspective 1-7 and how each one relates to the other. It'd be foolish to spoil anything in commentaries relating to book 7 unless it was a marketing ploy.

    Our cheap theater just go it too, but I'm still going to it. I've gone to every other HP movie in the theater, I'm not missing this one. Besides, it gives me an excuse to leave the house by myself for a few hours.

    The DVD doesn't come out here until the 27th or some rubbish. I'm so disappointed. I would have bought it on release day, as well. :(

    You can have someone ship it to you. How much is postage from US to Australia? [face_money_eyes]

    Well not that much. I sent a CD to someone and it was only AU$4.00, but it might be more the other way around. Anyway, my DVD player isn't all regions. :(

    Ah, I forgot about the DVD player. Otherwise I would've sent you a copy of GoF.

    There are all regions DVD players, but mine is an old one, so won't do it.

    Thanks for the offer, though, 506. I really appreciate it, even though it isn't happening. :)

    That's actually a good idea. Australia has Region 2 if I'm not mistaken. The R1 is usually pretty good.
