Relive The Harry Potter Films With This 13-Minute Video
As a Harry Potter fan, I'll admit, the new Harry Potter Wizard's Collection Blu-ray/DVD Combo set is a very nice looking set. With 31 discs included, featuring all of the movies and hours of bonus content, not to mention the fancy packaging, it's tempting to consider shelling out the understandably high cost, especially when considering half the movies I own are the originally released DVDs.
It may be time for an upgrade. But $344.99 (the price Amazon has set for it) is on the steep side. If, like me, you're trying to talk yourself out of figuring out how to squeeze that kind of money out of the budget, I recommend not watching the video below. Because it may induce the sudden need to re-watch all of the Harry Potter movies, from Sorcerer's Stone all the way through the second part of The Deathly Hallows.
Edited by Kees van Dijkhuizen jr, the 13-minute video plays like a giant trailer for all eight movies, showing off the highlights from each movie. But if you haven't seen all of the movies, consider yourselves very spoiler warned, especially toward the end!
The video does a great job of showing the progress of the story, from when young Harry first went to Hogwarts, through his adventures at school and spats with Voldemort, all the way to the epic battle he and his friends engage in against Voldemort and his Death Eaters. The last couple of minutes capture the heart of the story beautifully, featuring some of the most touching moments from the films. Not only do I now want to watch all of the movies again, but I'm struck with an urgent desire to re-read the series from start to finish. Is there enough time to do all that between now and September 27, when Rowling's new novel A Casual Vacancy comes out?
