5.0 out of 5 stars "Glory" on BLU RAY MASTERED IN 4K...
First things first - I don't own a 4K TV - nor do I own the Sony BDPS6200 BLU RAY player with built in 4K upscaling. So I suppose this review of "Glory Mastered In 4K" is compromised on 2 fronts. However I have what I suspect most film lovers have - a good Plasma TV and a half-decent BLU RAY player. But even with machines as lowly as these - I'm compelled to...

3.0 out of 5 stars A review of the 2009 Blu-Ray release!
A quick word of warning.

I bought this 2009 Blu-Ray edition to upgrade from my DVD copy and discovered on watching that I've completely wasted my money. I'm not sure how this will compare to the newer 2012 Blu-Ray release however this 2009 version is nothing more than a direct transfer from a DVD source and cannot by any stretch of the imagination be referred...

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful film and one of the best characters in fiction, 28 Sep 2003
This review is from: Glory [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
What a wonderful character does Matthew Broderick play in this awsome, great film! Colonel Shaw is, at the beginning of the film (and forgive me for the change in genre and scale), like Frodo in The Lord of the Rings: a seemingly ordinary, anonimous, humble official of the Federate army who has been burdened (like Frodo) with a task that nobody wishes: the mustering and training of the first all-coloured volunteer regiment. However, his idealism and firm principles push him to do the best he can, and that turns out to be a lot. Throughout the movie we discover (with him, since he did not really know all the good qualities that he had inside) that he has the strength and courage to rise up to the moral, bureocratic and military-life challenges that are thrown in his way, always in accordance with his high idealistic, military and moral standards. These same standards give him the authority, towards the end of the film, to make life-or-death decissions for his men, and the courage to carry them out himself to the utmost consequences. The whole story revolves around this character, who is so superbly interpreted by Matthew Broderick that we can read on his face his feelings of embarrassment, outrage, fear, etc, although always in a subdued no-histrionic tone. Of course, the other actors and characters are also great, but Colonel Shaw will be for me, from now on, one of the best-developed and noblest characters in any kind of fiction.

Gruelling, hard work, desperate, futile, cruel, edifying, sad, courageous, lamentable, callous, dramatic, wearying, shocking, depressing and mournful. You've been warned...

This review is from: Glory [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
I was recommended this DVD by a Negro American friend and found it very interesting .It tells the story of Black Americans who wanted the right to fight in the American civil war.It is based on a true story and certainly improved my education of historical events.
