Additional Features

The Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Ultimate Edition includes both the original theatrical cut and an extended version (a mere 6.5 minutes longer), and the picture and sound are as good as on the original Blu-ray release (the sound is now DTS-HD Master Audio rather than PCM, but both are uncompressed). Also on the disc is In-Movie Experience (the theatrical cut only), which is a combination of director Chris Columbus' picture-in-picture commentary and storyboards. Since there are numerous gaps, it helps to be able to skip to the next segment using the right arrow button. Daniel Radcliffe introduces the second disc, the main attraction of which is Creating the World of Harry Potter, Part I: The Magic Begins, an hourlong documentary in high definition that is the first of a series. It interviews all the principal cast (particularly appealing when it switches from a 2001 interview to the same person in 2009f) and covers the casting process, the sets, the premiere, and other topics. Almost 10 minutes of deleted scenes and a variety of featurettes and trailers complete the second and third discs, repeating much of the bonus material from the original Blu-ray release. Other extras include a postcard-sized book of photos and two character cards. --David Horiuchi

Customer Reviews

As book to movie adaptions go this one of the best made.
N. Fares
If you haven't read the books, don't see the movie because you can't really get as in deapth with the characters in the movie like you can in the book.
Hermione Granger
The movies were very well made with great casting, great acting, great special effects, & great scenery.

Format: DVD
As a Harry Potter fan, I'm so happy with this movie adaptation. It's very true to the book (which is fabulous in my opinion, I don't know why some people complained about that), although there are some slight differences. The movie makers have done a wonderful job bringing Rowling's world on screen. The visual effects, especially Fluffy, ghosts, chess pieces, Quidditch game were done exceptionally well.
The second disc is all extras. I guess it was designed for Harry Potter fans and people who enjoyed the movie very much because it was assumed that you've watched the movie beforehand. The deleted scenes were a little hard to find since several steps have to be taken. First I had to go to get the key and take money from the Gringotts bank in Diagon Alley. Then purchase wand from Olivander's. Then return to the school and attend classes. Go to potions class and answer three questions. The questions were a little bit of a hassle for me. Answer for the 1st question: Aphrodel and the tube next to it (forgot name); 2nd question: wolfsbane and monkhood; 3rd question: snake fangs and porcupine quills. After the questions, select winged key by trying out a few. Then select the orange colored potion and you will see the mirror of erised. There are a total of 7 deleted scenes. Although some will say they are not worth the hassle, but I liked them. My other favorite extra is the interview. It was good to learn about the behind the scenes interaction of the director/producer/actors etc and production of the movie in general. They also mentioned something about the second movie.
Overall good buy. Worth every cent. Will rewatch it on DVD many times.

To start off this isn't a review of the movie itself, by now you should have already formed an opinion of the movie for yourself or from other reviews of just the film. This is a review for the Ultimate Edition.

Two words: Absolutely Amazing!

This isn't just some scam from Warner Bros to get a few more dollars squeezed out of the Harry Potter movies, this is brand new and refreshing. Warner Bros packaged this set to be (or what appears to be) the last Harry Potter set to be had. Everything that you could want in a collectors set it included here.

The booklet included is surprisingly well done. The book keeps with the theme of the special feature exclusive to the ultimate edition. For example, in the Chamber of Secrets edition the booklet is all about the characters and their development, both at the beginning of the series and how they have evolved through the years. Included are stills from the movie, pictures of the theme (ie. characters, buildings, sets), and my favorite... concept art.

As for the character cards that are included they aren't anything super special but at the same time they aren't cheaply done. The cards are solid and printed well. I could see where some people will find them very satisfying and a highlight of the edition.

The thing that I was most impressed with, however, was the presentation. Finally someone released a special edition of a film and made it presentable and convenient. The boxes are made to look like books that fold open and are neatly packed on the inside. Also on the inside of the book there are images from the film, making it look very much like a collector's item. Warner Bros has really set themselves up nicely for the release of the next six of these.

Overall I was extremely pleased with this edition of the movie and cannot wait for the rest to be released.

Format: DVD
Spirited adaptation of the first of J.K. Rowling's phenomenally successful children's books is so keen on being faithful to its original source that it loses a bit of its magic but is marvelous entertainment nonetheless (particularly for the kiddies). Harry Potter is a young orphan boy raised by his meany uncle and aunt who one day learns from a gruff giant named Hagrid (Robbie Coltrane) that he is a wizard, and has been accepted into Hogwart's, a school of sorcery for the magically-abled. Once there he experiences all sorts of adventures with new best friends Ron and Hermione, many of them to the chagrin of the school's kindly headmaster Dumbledore (Richard Harris) and the sharp-as-tacks Professor McGonagall (a wickedly zesty Maggie Smith). Perfect casting all around is a plus, not to mention state-of-the-art visual effects, a boisterous score by John Williams and inspired production design by Academy Award winner Stuart Craig (The Last Emperor, Dangerous Liaisons, The English Patient). Fans of the book will delight in seeing all their favourite aspects of Hogwarts brought to life so accurately, but those less familiar with the world of Harry Potter will lose their patience by the time they get to the anticlimactic last third. It's not as winsomely funny as the book, but it's still quite the charmer. Title in America is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

The movie is great and true to the book. The DVD is an atrocity. Someone had no clue about user interface design. The special features are unimpressive and it takes forever to get anywhere. I do not know who thought following an intricate 18 step process to get to the deleted scenes would be fun. For a video game with controllers, great, with a remote in hand, preposterous. There are few interviews and no commentaries. You get two disks full of annoying and ridiculous graphics..I would be insulting game designers everywhere if I refered to them otherwise. They should release a new single disk DVD with the movie and some decent features that you can reach in a straightforward manner.

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.

ebay sellers resealing used blu ray and selling as "Brand New"
Yes, this is true anywhere online and in real life stores too. Buying a huge roll of shrink wrap is not very expensive, and all it takes is a standard heat gun to shrink it down.

I worked at a Movie, Music, and Book store. They would often take returns and put new shrink wrap on them and sell... Read More

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

Is there just a way to buy the Extended movie, and not get a huge set...
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.
