Deathly Hallows- Part 1 Blu-ray Combo Pack review

deathly hallows poster

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 is not a hard sell for Potter fans. It’s a fan’s duty to pick up each one of the DVDs in the franchise as soon as it’s released. We all know that the films have fantastic replay value, and we all look forward to having a complete set of eight films by the end of this year. It’s worth noting that the DVD sets have changed over the years. As we reported the other day, big special features weren’t included with the DVDs until Prisoner of Azkaban’s release. Over the years the producers have told us that it has become increasingly important to include enticing special features as to provide consumers with a more convincing sell. So it comes as no surprise that the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 set includes many nice features. Easily the most interesting feature is the Maximum Movie Mode, which is an enhanced commentary of sorts. Throughout the movie you’ll see various cast and crew members share interesting behind-the-scenes tidbits, and most of these are aided by great additional visuals. It’s a fun way to watch the movie again because you’re bound to learn new information. One of our favorite ... Read More »

Review of LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7


The crew over at TT Games bring a touch to the Harry Potter series that previously hasn’t been seen on gaming consoles. While Electronic Arts has created a corporate carbon copy of the movie adaptations, it is evident that you have true Potter fans behind-the-scenes of LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7. Yes, the LEGO games follow the movie storyline closely, but they also pull things from the books that fans of the series can and will appreciate. The biggest difference is the playability of almost every character in the series. The game opens in Little Whinging on a rain-soaked playground. You will need to use both Harry and Dudley to navigate the level before coming face-to-face with several Dementors. A few minutes later you’re flying over London and arriving outside No. 12 Grimmauld Place. And it is here you really begin to see what makes the LEGO games different. Instead of being just a series of cut scenes, you’re presented with a creative challenge: your entire Advance Guard collide just before arrival. You must use Harry and Kingsley Shacklebolt to rescue the other guard members, including Mad-Eye Moody who has become stuck in a fountain. After freeing him, you next have to locate his missing ...
