Oh, you're technically correct about blu-ray having more capacity.

I think the decision to offer sparse features is solely driven by a desire to force volume buying of more expensive equipment/discs. I will give them credit for designing the blu-ray player to run other types of media as well; even they're smart enough to realize people aren't going to replace all the regular DVD's they currently own with blu-ray. As a side note, I kept all my vinyl LP's, and by the time my original record player gave out, they were making them again. I still listen to them, and in some cases the old LP definitely sounds richer than the CD remaster. Go figure.

You are correct- here in New Zealand, they sold a 2-disc DVD set, and all the special features, excluding Jo and Dan's interview and Maximum Movie Mode (understandably), were included - including When Harry Left Hogwarts. The US could have also made this option mainstream, but decided that only Walmart could sell a version like it, but didn't include the documentary, because that was a Target exclusive. The problem in the US was therefore WB giving exclusives to chains and confusing the customers...

Confusion is an understatement. Also, the Target exclusive with the documentary here in the US is only on blu-ray, which is why I suspect it was a calculated move to push buying of blu-ray equipment.

In Spain they sold a 2disc DVD set also which included all special features except MMM. And that includes the conversation and the documentary. So yeah, excluding MMM that's nothing to do with capacity. They want us to buy bluray. Well, not me, apparently in my country they're OK with DVD as people with DVD players got a really good offer

Why is it a mistake that they deleted a scene you didn't like? They are deleted for a reason...

Although something like this did happen with the transition from VHS to DVD (and cassette tapes to CDs): consumers had to re-buy all their old purchases to be able to watch/listen to them on the modernized equipment. I have yet to buy a Blu-Ray player, but I am thankful that they made DVDs compatible (whereas I am still hanging on to an old VCR player so that I did not have to buy the DVD versions! ).

I agree with this completely. I have gone beyond the point of confusion to total ignorance concerning the available versions, their special features, where they are sold, etc. I am glad that I will likely be getting the film for Christmas, so as to prevent me from making the choice myself of the limited DVD options!

It is regrettable that there is so much convolution of the home video release of the final film of the series, but that must be the downside of having a film event cover 10 years of changing technology.

i do like the scenes except in 2 of them you can see the green mats that the studio uses and the other scene had Nagini look computerized instead of realistic

My Blu-Ray Dvd has the interview.

I absolutely hate the ultraviolet copy--it seems you can't put it in iTunes? If anyone can tell me differently, let me know how to do it!

Re: The Deathly Hallows DVD

I wish they had not deleted the scenes of Luna telling Harry she was going to Hogwarts from Shell Cottage because it confused us when she suddenly appeared there and the scene of Ginny taking Harry's hand when marching into the great hall. Those two were really needed and were only short moments which would have stopped any confusion.

It's also on the DVDs sold through Walmart; otherwise you need the blu-ray version. I've got the Walmart DVD....but it doesn't have the "When Harry Left Hogwarts" feature.

Re: The Deathly Hallows DVD

It's been a long time since I read the Part 1 parts of this thread, so this may have already been discussed, but last night I was playing around with the settings of my Part 1 blu-ray. Namely, I wanted to find out if it has other language dubs (because I don't usually pay attention to these things when I buy DVDs). So, it does and my kids wanted to hear the Spanish overdubs. During the 7 potters/chase scene, right when Harry and Hagrid break past the protections and it is mayhem, subtitles popped up for what the death eaters were yelling. I never really noticed if they were yelling distinct dialogue, but I guess they are. You can hear them yell things like "Where is he?" and "He's over there!" or something close to that. (These were shown as subtitles when we had the Spanish overdub on). I know it's nothing major, but we felt like we discovered a little easter egg

Re: The Deathly Hallows DVD

I always enjoy watching the film with the subtitles because they often display background dialogue. For DH1, that was one of the scenes that surprised me too .

I didn't get this on my DVD either (the UK 2 disc edition) which was disappointing, I was really hoping it would be on there after seeing it promoted heavily in the run-up to the DVD release. I know the UK DVDs usually have more special features, based on Part 1 which I was really happy with, but that interview not being on the Part 2 DVD was a bit disappointing. It's on the blu-ray, but I have no interest in getting the blu-rays as I don't have a player.

I'm really enjoyed the When Harry Lefy Hogwarts Documentary though, that was brilliant, had me almost in tears!

I would have liked it if they had a 3D version of Deathly Hallows, you now like they had in the theatre.

They have got it available in 3D. I have seen them in the stores.In fact, I walked past the stand with them on just about an hour ago and thought to myself how much I hate 3D and how I would never watch DH in 3D.
