The recent release of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire shows how magical a film can appear on High Definition displays.
Perfectly suited to High Definition format, the fourth Harry Potter film launches into fast and frenetic action from the offset.
Within a few minutes the Quidditch world cup launches us into a Computer Graphics feast that is brought to life in a way that was unimaginable with standard dvd. The new format is perfectly suited to CG set pieces on a large scale.
The Goblet of Fire is possibly one of the best HD transfers to date, with clean crisp pictures looking stunning and at times almost 3D like in quality. Warner have made a real effort to provide all of their High Definition release with Dolby TrueHD which adds to the superb mix, especially when pushed through a decent quality amp. The whole experience is an assault on the senses that will leave you demanding more of the same.
The two disc set also includes interviews with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) with their reactions to the film.
There are 10 minutes of additional scenes from the film and a long musical number from the ball. Other material includes Triwizard Tournament details, with behind-the-scenes looks at the individual competitions and four games, playable with the directional arrows on the remote control.
Overall, a wonderfully reproduced HD DVD which shows High Definition at its best, and has recently been released in the UK with a retail price of £25.99.
