Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection

Potter fans will go wild, Warner Brothers is releasing a 31 disc Blu-ray box set of the Harry Potter films! 31 insane discs! Your gonna have a Hogwarts overdose with this one, after watching all of these you will go through withdrawal.

The price is $350 for this insane set, it has all 8 movies and I don’t know what other crazy features it will have other then answering all your questions. For most people this set will not make any sense, I probably won’t get it even though it seems enticing because I already have a few movies and I just enjoy the movies don’t care about the extras really but still it looks like an impressive kit.

Review: Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Pt. 1

As Harry races against time and evil to destroy the Horcruxes, he uncovers the existence of three most powerful objects in the wizarding world: the Deathly Hallows.

Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1 is fun yet disturbing with a dark undertone to the movie. Potter has left Hogwarts, Dumbledore is really dead, and Voldemort takes over the Ministry of Magic. All hell breaks loose and Harry, Hermione, and Ron are running through the semi-enchanted streets of London into the forests to get away from the Death Eaters. For once we see Voldemort as the leader of the evil forces, and you get to see them instead of them hiding in the dark corners. Muggles and Half-Bloods are hunted and killed, Valdemort installed his people in the government and you can see them with their policy of pure, only those of pure magicians blood can exist, no mudbloods. This just being Part 1 left me wanting so much more and still the movie was amazing, its good to see them all grown up, everything taking place in the real world, and everything is coming together but I still don’t want the movies to end.

The Last of Harry Potter

HarryPotterEnding

Now they have officially wrapped up the production of all the Harry Potter movies, I can’t believe its been so long. I refused to read all the books of Harry Potter because I knew it would ruin the movies for me, and I have loved every movie released, I remember even delaying a trip to watch the release Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in 2005. I will probably be doing a marathon before the next release of Harry Potter. The first movie was released in 2000 and the last one is to be released in 2011, a full decade of amazing Harry Potter movies and I just can’t get enough of it. I love a lot of the characters in the movies, and all of them have been well done. At least we have two more movies to look forward to, I hope they end it on a high note, I don’t know what to expect but I know its going to be great.

Release Dates:

  • Nov. 19, 2010 – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
  • July 15, 2011 – Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows Part 2

Review: Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince

In the sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft, and in both wizard and muggle worlds Lord Volemort and his henchmen are increasingly active. With vacancies to fill at Hogwarts, Professor Dumbledor persuades Horace Slughorn, back from retirement to become the potions teacher, while Professor Snape receives long awaited news. Harry Potter, together with Dumbledore, must face treacherous tasks to defeat his evil nemesis.

At last I managed to watch this movie after such a long time, and it was worth the wait but I expected a little more. Harry has developed and grown, Ron and Hormaine are still his friends but they have also come along. The story revolves around Dumbledore trying to discover how Voldemort became how he is from the young student, and he would need Harry’s help. The story keeps getting more and more interesting, I like how Hormaine and Ron have developed in this story. The action is kept at a good pace and so is the story, and at its peek I was a bit shocked but the ending didn’t have the satisfaction I was looking for. A movie has to satisfy you and leave you wanting more, this movie was very good but the ending didn’t satisfy me, now I need to see the upcoming movie right away, it feels that I didn’t get a juicy ending.

Harry Potter And The Half Blood Prince in Kuwait

The simple way to check how messed up a movie is in Kuwait is to check the runtime. I’m happy at least KNCC posts up their real runtimes of these movies and not fabricated numbers, but this time around I’m a bit shocked of how much they chopped off from Harry Potter.

The Original Movie Runtime: 153 Mins
The Kuwaiti Approved Version: 135 Mins

11% of the movie has been chopped off, meaning that you will lose 11% of the story and that is too much for my tastes. I think I’m going to wait to watch it outside of Kuwait or wait for the Blu-Ray to come out. I tend to avoid movies with magic, or female interaction in Kuwait. I try to watch some movies and try to limit them to Pixar movies but sometimes I want to enjoy the movie in the theater but this time around I think I will wait for the Blu Ray version.
