  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

    Cast: Daniel Radcliffe Studio: Warner Bros. Rating: 7/10 You get great sound (Dolby Digital 5.1 EX) and John Williams score sounds crisp. The video transfer looks fantastic.

  • Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone

    Cast: Daniel Radcliffe Studio: Warner Bros Rating: 9.5/10 It’s undeniable, Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone is phenomenal.
