Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets (2-disc DVD)

I am sure it is funny that I am doing a review of this DVD when it is so late already.

Well, the plot of the movie here is a lot better than the first one. The characters are more fleshed out and interesting. Even Malfoy does not look one-dimensional.

The actors' voices have changed. All of the boys sound like someone is squeezing their throats. Acting has not improved dramatically though. But then, by now, you would know that none of them really has developed.

The picture quality of this DVD is brilliant and so is the sound. The CGI are more realistic. The digital doubles are not that obvious. Dobby is impressive at first but then he does not have any weight. He looks too light when he moves.

Oh this DVD is packed with extras. It was actually fun playing the games and watching the deleted scenes and interviews. It would have been nice if the actors were not wearing costumes. I would have liked to see them wearing ordinary clothes.

Well, the basilisk is one of the scariest creatures I have seen in the big screen and it is still scarey to watch even on my laptop. It is just amazing what digital technology can do nowadays. It is worth seeing this movie because of this digital creature.
