While not necessarily the most vital feature of the `Harry Potter' films, one of the most important considerations is perhaps the feel of each movie, which is one of the most immediate things that strikes an audience.
In terms of that, as the series progresses, each part has become sturdier in achieving an all-round sense of completeness, in that every instalment gradually moves towards being a singular film in its own right while taking rich pickings from a world, whose continuity and consistency have been respected and admirably maintained, reconceived for the silver screen in what will ultimately be seven parts.
The first movie was atmospherically very lush, with rich hues of red and gold that both conveyed the wondrous regality of Hogwarts and gave the film an aptly warm, seasonal touch that maintained a sense of comfort in the world our young protagonists found themselves in as well as for the young audience, and, of course, mirrored the cheery Christmas movie-going period. The second saw a darkening that was tentative at best, giving it a more grimy, dull and sapped feel rather than a truly menacing or ominous one. The Gothic turn in the third demonstrated what that darkening should have accomplished, in addition to matching the mood of the third book, which, strange as it may sound, lent itself to the colour purple. `Goblet of Fire' then suitably attains a lovely palette that might have been filtered through a window in spring, bringing about a tightly textured look that doesn't suffer from an effluvium of colour, ranging from the autumnal compound of the castle to the shadowy blue of a graveyard.Read more ›
These extended editions of the film make the price point of the first two versions palatable, but their absence makes you wonder what exactly you're paying for with both this and the ultimate edition of PoA.
One of the things that impressed me most about Prisoner of Azkaban (Potter 3) was the beauty of the set piece scenes. No one could deny that Harry's ride on the hippogriff was beautifully shot. In addition, the color palette as a whole seemed many shades darker than the first two movies. The overal effect was that the movie felt more targeted towards adults. Goblet of Fire continues this trend. All of the major scenes have truly beautiful scenery buttressed by some impressive CGI. The whole movie felt like one set of wonders followed by another...I simply smiled at the beauty of much of it.Read more ›
1.) Victor Krum is meant to be an awkward guy who is tall, lanky and has a sort of duck-like walk. When you get him on a broom this awkwardness is completely gone. He's also a quiet character who is always found in the library at the same time as Hermione. That's why she's attracted to him in the first place. This is completely changed for the movie. Victor Krum is suddenly a very robust and muscular young man who is adored by the ladies. He is also very cocky and seems to have absolutely nothing in common with Hermione.
2.) Cedric Diggery is also not such a self conceited character. They did manage to cast a good looking young man, but since when does he laugh at Harry? It is also insinuated that it is Cedric's friends who make the "Potter Stinks" buttons. That's not true! Cedric is adored by his father, yes, but Cedric is a Prefect. He isn't a popular kid who uses that to his own advantage. Cedric is loved by his classmates because he is a genuinely good person. They didn't do a very good job of portraying this. The audience feels very little for Cedric which doesn't give such a great character any justice.
3.) Since when does Dumbledore try to strangle Harry? I had a lot of problems seeing a character who has always been respectful turn to this sudden loss of hope. Suddenly Dumbledore doesn't know what to do, he can't handle the situation and he continues to yell at the students. Dumbledore is such a respected character that he doesn't have to yell or lose his temper.Read more ›

I am also searching for the Director's cut versions or extended versions. I feel sure some exist because Dish Network played on some time back and I know I saw scenes I have not seen before. As a rookie Amazon.com shopper, where does one go to located Director's or Extended versions?
