\"Harry Potter...\" DVD Release Date Approaching


The DVD for \"Harry Potter and the Sorcerer\'s Stone\" will be out on May the 28th. Below are three links to reviews of the DVD release. Everyone seems to agree that the transfer
from film to DVD is a bit sketchy at times, but the sound is great.

Also, the reviews concur that Disc 2, which contains the extras, will
not appeal to anyone over the age of 10. There are seven deleted
scenes, but accessing them is time consuming. Here are the
first steps:

Deleted Scene Access Instructions
So you\'re braving it, eh? Okay then. With Disc Two in your player,
from the main menu, select \"Diagon Alley\". You\'ll be faced with a brick
wall from which you\'ll be asked to select the right bricks to let you
inside. Just click on a few - the third time you fail to get the right
combination, the disc will let you in anyway. Inside Diagon Alley,
select the key on the Gringots sign. Inside Gringots, select the coins
to get the money you\'ll need to buy a wand. Next go to Olivanders and
select a wand. Once you\'ve finally found one that works, leave Diagon
Alley and go back out to the main menu. Select \"classrooms\". When you
get to that page, select \"down\" on your remote to highlight the
creatures on the statue and hit enter twice. You\'ll be taken into the
third floor corridor, where you\'ll see a three-headed dog. Select the
flute and hit enter. Next you\'ll be taken to a room with flying keys.[taken from The Digital Bits]

Beleive it or not there are more steps. This interactivity
is meant to appeal to kids, and might, but no alternative is provided for adults.
