Just curious, but has anyone here picked up either of the Harry Potter "Ultimate Edition" blu rays released so far? I believed the next two (Prisoner of Azkaban/Goblet of Fire) are due later this year as well. Although we are trying to cut back on our DVD/BD buying overall, we are trying to upgrade our favorite movies so that we have them on blu ray as well. I'm debating whether to go this route and picking these up as they come out, or to get the five pack (which is significantly cheaper overall). The "Ultimate Editions" do look pretty spiffy though, although they look as if they would take up a lot of shelf space. Just curious if anyone here has picked one (or both) up.
I picked both of them up, but have not had the chance to watch them yet. As I understand it, the cuts are similar to whichever channel keeps running them on TV. Essentially, it is the movie with the deleted scenes edited back into the movie. If you remember the original Sorcerer's Stone DVD (where you had to jump through hoops to get the deleted scenes), one of them had Harry's aunt making eggs and each on she opened had a Hogwarts letter in it.
As for a deluxe box set, as with Star Wars, I'm sure there will be continuous rereleases...however, these deluxe sets do contain a lot of extras...I'd have to check my sets to see exactly what each one has.
