Same film. Bigger box.

"No extended cut? Sorry, not interested. I don't need a dressed up version of the same film I already own, I don't care how nice the box is. Yes, the documentaries are good, but not enough to make me double-dip for the exact same films. What's frustrating as a consumer is that I did get the first two Ultimate Editions, and was looking forward to completing the collection of extended cuts. I know, I know... The studio gave the directors a chance to re-edit their films, and both directors felt the film that exists was the best cut, ergo no extended cuts are necessary. Nobody bothered to ask what the FANS actually want. Crazy thought... All I have to say is, they better not screw up the Order of the Phoenix Ultimate Edition. Everyone KNOWS that film had a full HOUR of stuff cut, footage that had been COMPLETED with effects and everything. So, you've got no excuses, WB! You can still release GREAT editions of Phoenix, Half-Blood, and Hallows, even if you have messed up these two Ultimate Editions...can these sets even be CALLED "Ultimate" when they are exactly the same films sitting in my living room?"
Waited for Extended Version for Nothing!!!!

"First time I saw the first two movies were the extended ultimate editions. Waited for next 2 and was extremely disappointed that they will not be extended. Well I ordered the other 4 movies on regular blu-ray instead of waiting forever to see if next #5 & 6 will be extended. They screwed up like the evil idiots who won't release Lord of the Rings extended on blu-ray until they rape the consumers with theatrical versions. Movie itself wasn't to bad, but I've never read or have the time or inclination to read the books, so extended is nice for background info."

"First of all, the lack of an extended cut takes away any chance of this item being a worthwhile purchase. Now the movie itself also has many flaws. Besides a terrible artistic style, and omitting many important scenes it also suffers from terrible dialogue pacing. Too many conversations happen at a Gilmoresque pace that shouldn't. Harry Potter is not a quick thinking character outside of physical conflict. If he is being told important, complex information he needs to stand there and absorb the information for a moment before responding. This same issue happens on a much lesser scale to most characters in the movie. The only characters who benefit from this pace are the Weasley Twins. The silver tongued quick witted bamboozlers work very well with the pacing of this movie."
More Like a 4.5, But Is Still My Favorite...

"I don't like the moments of super-Hermione throughout (and the way she throws Harry under Whomping Willow scene defies laws of science--one handed, without his shirt ripping off). Leaving out the Marauders doesn't bother me much, but I would have liked to have the significance of Prongs at least left in. And the CGI werewolf is an eyesore).
However, I love Harry's (and Dan's) quiet maturity (and messy hair, ha). I also thought the look, pacing, and transitions of the movie were great; and unlike other people's complaints, I find the ending quite fitting. Prisoner of Azkaban is the Harry Potter DVD I've watched most often."
