    It's hard but you should wait.

    Though I'm not one to talk, I have all the movies.

    No, unfortunately. We're on Zone 4. Thanks all the same, though, I really appreciate it. :)

    no worries, although this does not bode well for my dvd collection :(.

    Looks like i had better invest in a multi region.

    Yes, I think so. Yet another disadvantage of the stupid zoning system.

    Which is why they probably have a zoning system. For this very reason. :p

    Can't wait to finally get this in two days. Actually I consider it a day and a half really because you can be sure I'm getting it first thing on Tuesday.

    The Snape and Karkaroff one outside the Yule Bull was good. As was the one of Hermione trying to get Harry to tell Dumbledore about the dream and the three of the them sitting outside and Harry says the one where his scar is hurting.

    Hog-hoggy Hogwarts I didn't like or the Do the Hippogriff extended video and the Durmstrangs asking out Ravenclaws.

    I like the extras. Several good deleted scenes, a lot of good behind-the-scenes stuff, more with the actors, and MORE CLEMENCE POESY.

    I can't believe how long the featurettes are. It easily adds up to an hour and a half maybe two hours.

    Harry vs. the Horntail: Focused mainly on the CGI. Not bad, but general stuff. 8/10

    Meet the Champions: Cedric, Fleur and Viktor talked more in the featurette than they did the entire movie. Quite interesting. 9/10

    In Too Deep: Interesting how they filmed the entire Second Task. Really in depth material. 10/10

    The Maze: Some of the techniques used were quite interesting. Got to see more Stan and Clemence. 8/10

    He Who Must Not Be Named: Pretty much showed the entire Voldemort sequence in the featurette. Great commentary by Ray Fiennes. 9/10

    Preparing For the Yule Ball: I thought it was pretty good. Focused a lot on the awkwardness. Quite humorous. 8/10

    Conversations with the Cast: Thirty minutes of boring discussion. Didn't really like the host that much and the fan questions were decent. 7/10

    Reflections of the Fourth Film: All the Hogwarts students talk about the film. Great to see the opinions and reflections of the minor characters and the bonds on set. 9/10

    BTW can anyone get the knack of the Triwizard Tournament games on there you use your DVD remote. I keep getting killed.

    Just a quick question. I've never read any of the books but have enjoyed watching the films with my 8 yearold daughter. At the end does Harry tell anyone that Lucius Malfoy is a death eater. What were their reactions. How does Draco react.

    I'll give it another try. One other complaint I have about the DVD is that the DVD chapters are far too long. For a 157 minute movie to have under 30 chapters is ridiculous. When SS, COS and POA all had 35-40 and 2 of which were not as long.

    A lot more special features then I expected. I definitely enjoyed them.

    Oh yeah, I enjoyed the movie too. :p

    This is where you really have a diversity of audiences. You have the kids who grew up on it since SS, then you have some teens just getting into it and the adults who accept this past a fantasy movie and then the uber-Potter fans of all ages, who want to know every little facet of the HP-verse (myself).

    They did a good job with that in presenting the special features. I just wish they would've gone more into audio commentary and deleted scenes if anything.

    Audio commentary is usually in every film. It's a little bit of a shock to learn that the HP series lacks this. No matter.

    I think my favorite documentary was the Yule Ball one. You got to connect more with the actors and get a feel for who they really are. The people behind the characters they portray.
