Not sure what the interest would be like for this, if any, but I came across a VHS of Goblet of Fire in a lot a couple of months back and only got around to capturing it today.

I was surprised to find this cause I had never seen any other listings with it or even any info on it. Unlike Revenge of the Sith which was primarily in PAL regions for VHS, it looks like this never got a release anywhere else. Not sure if this was even in Australia cause the cover doesn’t have any AU ratings on it, just the NZ sticker, so it may have even been just a New Zealand release.

Content wise, it’s not anything special, just the film in 4:3 format, though it’s interesting how it still has that “This is DVD” promo before the film, even though it would have been 5 years then since it was made.

As all the Harry Potter films were shot in 35mm spherical, the Full Screen versions of those are partially open matte (with the exception of HP3). Goblet of Fire 4:3 version is also open matte, so there will be more image on top and bottom than the widescreen version.
Could you post some screenshots of the VHS?

A VHS version sounds interesting… I’d like to do some comparisons with my DVD copy.

Probably, since VHS seems to have stuck around in New Zealand longer than it did in other countries. I remember seeing VHS cassettes on sale in places like Foodtown even as recently as 2009.

Didn’t pay attention to VHS then, our family had moved onto DVD way before, would have been interesting to see how many people ended up getting the VHS at the end.

Still gotta make the DVD encode for it, hoping to get that up by next week or so.

Uploading it to Dropbox now, should be up within 6 hours, so PM then if you’re want it.

EDIT: Don’t bother PMing right now, Dropbox apparently doesn’t like heavy activity on public links and prohibited it now, so I’ll have to find another way to upload them. A contact of mine has Amazon Drive, which I’ll try and put it on ASAP

Wow, this is amazing! I didn’t know HP 4 would be released on VHS (and only in Australia).

Me neither, till I saw it in a random Trademe listing and then found no results on Google about a VHS release.
