Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (BD)]]>
Here's an event movie that holds up to being an event. This filmed version of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, adapted from the wildly popular book by J.K. Rowling, stunningly brings to life Harry Potter's world of Hogwarts, the school for young witches and wizards. The greatest strength of the film comes from its faithfulness to the novel, and this new cinematic world is filled with all the details of Rowling's imagination, thanks to exuberant sets, elaborate costumes, clever makeup and visual effects, and a crème de la crème cast, including Maggie Smith, Richard Harris, Alan Rickman, and more. Especially fine is the interplay between Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and his schoolmates Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson), as well as his protector, the looming Hagrid (Robbie Coltrane). The second-half adventure--involving the titular sorcerer's stone--doesn't translate perfectly from page to screen, ultimately because of the film's fidelity to the novel; this is a case of making a movie for the book's fans, as opposed to a transcending film. Writer Steve Kloves and director Chris Columbus keep the spooks in check, making this a true family film, and with its resourceful hero wide-eyed and ready, one can't wait for Harry's return. Ages 8 and up. --Doug Thomas

|Digital Copy Code||
Sadly I think those codes expire. My bad luck too, as I had planned to wait until all 7/8 movies were out to buy any of them, expecting there would be a boxed set like the books. Maybe when there is they will reset the expiration dates. Otherwise Digital Copy is a rip-off.

|I'm hoping these are the extended editions....||
Sometimes an extended edition is worth -- consider LotR. If this cut resembles that shown on the Family Channel, it will have some nice adds. If you don't think so, it is not worth the money but it is unclear to me why it is a "rip-off." Vertainly, I'd only consider the first two out... Read More

But it will free up so much wallet space!

|Audio Format on Blu Ray HP discs||
PCM is uncompressed audio whereas the other two use compression. Some older players can't decode DTS HD or TrueHD, which most likely accounts for the choice of PCM to make it universally playable.
