If all studios start doing that and charging those kind of prices it will quickly stall ANY HD format growth AND as much as i hate saying this,considering that the security coding on both formats has been hacked it wouldn't surprize me if the studios used that as an excuse for more expensive prices.

I'm in favor of the combo disks - if they retail for 40 and sell for 30 I'm ok with that - the combo won't be around forever - just until one format wins. If the combo comes to other studios, that would not have joined HD-DVD, then my choices increase. On the other hand, if HD-DVD fails, I'll have the other format already, so no investement lost.

Is exploited the only place to buy this right now? Also, does the price include shipping?

I received my HD-DVD of Goblet from Xploited.

The picture is fantastic, of course. I'm using an Xbox 360, so I can't really comment on the sound since it's all streamed as DD.

I really liked the iHD stuff. I've always loved commentary through the films I own, expecially on my favorites. The iHD on Goblet stars

the twins (James + Oliver Phelps). throughout the film thPiP pops up with other behind the scenes footage and interviews witht he

rest of the cast/crew.

There's tons of extras (some was on the SD-DVD), too bad they weren't also in HD.

Very enjoyable, and a great addition.

I should have ordered it when it came out in November, but I gave Warner a chance to release it in the states... Finally ordered it in Jan. Definitely top 5 disc for me. Don't wait. Order it from exploitedcinema.com now!! $40 shipped.

As far as the black levels - it seems to me like there is "posturizing" in the blacks (is that the right term?). Not sure if I remember seeing that in the IMAX theater. Very possible it was, though. I think they did some things in post that left their mark.

Great HD-DVD, great movie.

Mark

Now where's the rest of the series (taps foot impatiently)...

Nox and musicelect are definitely right. I just received my HP4 HD-DVD from Xploited yesterday and it looks and sounds great. Dolby True HD should be a must on all HD-DVD's.

Great choice, you won't be disappointed. The only thing UK about this release is the rating logos on the case.

Last Watched 3D: Oz the Great and Powerful

It should be called Violet-Ray

Get HPGF UK release at www.sendit.com
came out less than $37 (shipping included) (according to the exchange rate on the credit card statement).
Takes about 8-9 days but good deal otherwise.

anyone feel the grass is too green on this disc, especially in the beginning?

I think the movie looks great, but the grass is a bit nuclear - not sure if thats related to my new projector, or if it's just part of the films artistic pallet.

I was thinking about that first scene myself. I have the DVD version, and also HD .ts versions (a 720p and a 1080i recorded from HDTV movie channels) that I found online. The color saturation is much more vibrant on the HD-DVD. For me it's a welcome surprise. I like it.

Edit: I used the standard shipping.

Watch out for the next comparison thread this weekend. HP4 is among them.

This is one of the smoothest looking HD DVD disc in my collection. I mean that in a positive way. I can't wait for the others to be released.

This disc is reference in every way. Amazing PQ, wonderful TrueHD soundtrack, fun IME, some extras in high def.

This disc shows what the next gen format should be.

The extra $ for the import was well worth it. I still think it's criminal they didn't release it in the US.

*************************************************

Still looking for a movie theatre that shows movies the way they're SUPPOSED to be viewed...



...with a bitrate meter and screencaps.

I bought this HDDVD along with La Haine and rambo1.

Harry Potter 4 looks and sounds amazing.
Well worth the 35 buck import price.
I also can't wait for 1-3. I hope they are just as good. Hopfully they will also be HDDVD only no combos or total HD. Ill import them if the UK only gets them. And the US get total HD or nothing.
Also hope the 1 movie has the orginal UK name and not the changed US version. The UK version Of HP4 was the US version FBI warning and all. So I'm worried the first may come out as the wrong version. I'd imagine the UK would be outragged.

Does the 2 disc DVD offer anything over the HDDVD? If not I may sell it.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

"Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is the first volume in a series of seven books by British author J. K. Rowling and featuring the fictional character, Harry Potter, a young wizard. The first book was published 26 June 1997 by Bloomsbury in London, and has also been made into a feature-length film of the same name. This is also the most popular of the books by far, selling an estimated 107 million copies worldwide.

Both the book and the motion picture were released in the United States with the revised title Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, citing the reason that the American and British uses of the word philosopher were slightly different, giving the book title a different meaning in the two countries, thus hurting sales. Scholastic, the book's US publisher, also "translated" the original book into American English. The spelling as well as many words and expressions were changed. This led to criticism by many readers. The New York Times ran an article titled "Harry Potter, Minus a Certain Flavour" on July 10, 2000, which heavily criticised Scholastic's decision to Americanise the US Harry Potter editions."

The rest of the world knows HP1 as harry potter and the philosphers stone. America was the only place to get the changed version. In fact scences were reshot to include the change. So we ended up with harry potter and the sorcerers stone

I imported the region 2 UK DVD becase of this...

In light of all the posts above, I know this is probably a dumb question, but HPGF HD-DVD Region 2 will play on an unmodded Toshiba XA2... right?

I don't have to do (or have) anything special to watch this if I order from Amazon UK, do I?

Correct. HD DVDs do not have region coding. They might some day, but it won't affect current discs.

And you can order this from Amazon.co.uk , or Xploited Cinema which I (and many here) have used and recommend.

Loose sounds like moose. Lose sounds like news.

Does anyone know when we'll get the other Potter films in HD? Seems like it would be good to either release them this summer when Phoenix hits theaters or this fall.

I was just came across this thread and I know it is very old but I would still like to bring it to notice that the colors are not at all accurate. Even though they are just photographs of the screen, this is no way near true colors.

The colors are highly tinted with hues of blue or yellow in various scenes. This tv needs massive calibration.

Yes, the color is a little...like painted. This is such an old thread since the last part of Deathly Hallow had been out for so long. smile.gif
