I'm glad I have the movie, but my 19 yr old son and I were disappointed in the dreariness throughout the whole movie and the inability to see things and people due to the movie’s dark lighting. Color was practically void in the movie. I would've liked to have seen parts devoted to what actually happened and leave out what totally didn't happen at all in the movie - like Bellatrix and her friends dropping in on the Weasleys.Avatar ImageKimberlyZ says: omgshh brilliant Avatar ImagexAnaheyy says: WOOT WOOT ; i got my copy in Blu-ray, though my Blu Ray player hasn't arrived ! >.< thank God for bonus packs and digital copies :DAvatar ImageFifi says: I have my copy too...well done HP!Avatar ImageJTEL99 says: Yep, I've got my copy! :o)Avatar Imageexpelliarmus9 says: gotta love Harry Potter dvds!
