5.0 out of 5 stars BLU RAY - A VISUAL FEAST, 7 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cleopatra [Blu-ray] [1963] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I'm sure most of you are familiar with the story and probably the film .
if not GOOGLE away , i'm not going to talk about the film in that respect other than to say it has some great actors and some good scenes with a decent script and the most amazing sets and wardrobe to ever grace a camera lens.
LETS TALK BLU-RAY .... 1080p .... 2 BD50 dual layer discs
aspect is 2.20:1 and sound is DTS 5.1
this appears to be the 4 hr version previously released as a special on 3 dvds .
the picture transfer is amazing considering the film is nearly 40 years old . the sets and costumes really shine through . colours are vibrant and detail is good , cloth textures are notable and jewellery shines and glitters . Taylors trachyoptomy scar is visible in most scenes and every hair , mole and wrinkle is visible even through the heavy make-up .. the sets are so colourfull and detailed i was often looking more at the scenery and clothing than the actors . it was like watching a new film .
the sound is mostly stereo and works well . the surround sound is very subtle and used during the more exciting scenes . for those with decent sound systems the depth and spacial imaging of sounds and effects are noticibly better than the dvd . the voices however are clear but at loud moments (shouting) the sound can be harsh and slightly distorted .( more to do with the recording at the time than the processing for the bluray). the orchestra seems to have been processed , it is clear and rich in sound and uses all channels of the 5.1 surround.
highly recommend this blu ray .. only Bladerunner impresses me more as a bluray title . although i have yet to purchase Lord of the Rings.
