I am an extended edition buff and have a big collection of original ones and all the fanedits from here.
Many extended editions do not add anything to the movie, just add more useless scenes. I will rate the ones here.
Rating criteria: image quality, sound quality, 3x improvement, overall.
Image Quality: 10 of 10
Sound Quality: 9 of 10
Improvement: 4 of 10
Overall: 6 of 10
Have to agree with the others: “Do the hippogriff” is probably the worst scene in all Harry Potter, I’m just so glad they didn’t put it into the main moive because if I had seen that movie in the cinema i would have been done with harry potter.
the other scenes however are a nice addition
I too would be in favor of a true fanedit that cuts out the hippogriff song and maybe the “we’ll probably never have a normal year” – happy go lucky dialog at the end
This was my favourite Harry Potter movie, so forgive me if I tend to be too subjective about it. For me this is the perfect transition between the children movies that were the three first and the more adult oriented ones that were the last three.
This extended edition of Harry Potter and the Globet of Fire shows this transition better, explaining things that were not in the original film like the rock concert.
