Harry Potter will be known for many things; it’s the most successful film franchise of all time for starters, and likely when all is said and done will have the most versions of DVDs and Blu-rays you have ever seen. There is a box set coming next week, the Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection that can be yours for a few hundred dollars. To celebrate, one devoted fan put together this rather awesome video you can watch below.
The video goes through all eight films in a well put together, edited and musically scored retrospective that should make even the grumpiest of Muggles smile.

The franchise is over, the dust has settled, and what we have been left with is one remarkable movie franchise to look back on with mostly praise. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was a great movie, now it’s time to consider it for awards. Is it really good enough to be considered for a “Best Picture” at the Oscars?
Well, Warner thinks so, they released a promotional “For Your Consideration” video, which is very powerful. You can watch it below as well as a list of nominations Warner Bros. is going for:

Trailer for Harry Potter Documentary ‘When Harry Left Hogwarts – a new documentary that will be on either the Blu-ray or DVD of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2:
With the Box Office numbers still being too close to call, I went ahead and called it anyways. Smurfs isn’t #1 okay, it just isn’t. Good for Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford, two fine actors showing the blue jerks who’s boss. For the nitpickers, you can check out Box Office Mojo or The-Numbers on Monday for an official winner.
I guess we can spin it anyway we want, but Cowboys might come out a loser either way, with a projected budget of about $200M (the project started development in 1997) it’s hard to imagine the film having the legs to really stand out or merit the studio’s favorite word, “sequel”. The Smurfs will have a sequel, new TV show and probably a “meet the chipmunks” movie too. I’m going back to bed.
