Digital Wednesday: Harry Potter HD Set!
So for people that know me, they know I have an obsession, affinity, or love for Harry Potter. Not only as a series of books that got me hooked on reading as a young child but also as a series of movies that I constantly wanted to see. When I was a kid it was the Harry Potter books that intrigued me into the world of magic and wonder that is so different from the mundane reality around us. I was a kid but I didn’t realize the impact the seven books in the series would have on me and my life.
I know what you are thinking, “Natasha it is just a book about death and loss with some added magic that is all.” Well you tell that to my friends who sat next to me in the movie theater and cried along with me at the death of characters, or laughed at the jokes brought to life on screen by the best pair of red-headed twins EVER. This series means a lot to me, and people in my generation that read those books. Which is why I was extremely excited to see what iTunes is currently offering!
$59.99 for the HD Extended Versions of every Harry Potter film. That is right, ALL 8 Films!!!
You can find this by searching for Harry Potter in the iTunes store under the subheading for Movies.
If you have never ventured into the world of iTunes Movies for rent or purchase you are seriously missing out. The great thing about iTunes for movies is you own the movie, it’s a digital copy which means you can pull it down to any of your authorized i-Devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or varying Apple computers). Do you understand how awesome that is?
If not talk to your local Apple fans and ask them about it.
WARNING! 41.2 GB for the HD version of the series!! That is a lot of space so if you don’t have an external hard drive I suggest using one for all of your purchased films! 17.7GB for the standardized version of the films, but at the same cost why bother right? (just kidding, I can understand not wanting the HD because 41 GB is a lot of space)
Any way, this is my selection for Digital Wednesday, yes it is a bit pricey but I do suggest this as a family purchase something everyone can enjoy. My dad never read the Harry Potter books but he enjoyed the movies because they have a good storyline and were able to bring up topics that otherwise may have been hard to segway into with a kid my age. The films vary from PG to PG-13, be fair warned there are scenes of torture, death and MAGIC.
And yes I am still waiting for my Hogwarts letter it’s only 12 years late but I’m sure it’ll get here!
