Harry Potter and the Complete Collection on Blu-ray

Seven books, eight films, spanning an entire decade. The complete Harry Potter collection is available for the first time on Blu-ray and it's definitely worth picking up (even if it is definitely lacking in terms of extras).

For the first time I sat down and was able to watch the entire Deathly Hallows in one sitting, and I've got to say it holds up well. From glancing through the collection the other titles also work well on Blu-ray. Warner Bros. has a larger set ready to hit stores next year, but, unless you're a total Harry Potter maniac, having all eight films on Blu-ray in one slim case is all you really need.

The set is listed at $140, but with not too much searching you should be able to pick it up for about half that price (a little less than $10 per Blu-ray isn't too shabby). The series has its highs (The Prizoner of Azkaban) and lows (The Order of the Phoenix), but it's a great collection to own, especially at this price.
