Great price!

Yeah I think it's rumoured that a blu-ray re-release will coincide with Robin Hood later in the year. However, for this price it's a great opportunity for Steelbook collectors to add to their collection!

great price-heat added

Not voting on this as its a brilliant movie but a BAD Blu Ray...I own it and i have to say its probably the worst Transfer i have seen...the following review from "Digital Bits" sums it up...buts stops short of describing how bad it actually is.

The uneven video quality of Gladiator really damages the launch and reputation of Paramount's new Sapphire Series. As the disc is obviously going to street as planned, what I HOPE happens - what I STRONGLY encourage - is that Universal and Paramount immediately run a new HD transfer, and then either recall the disc or make it a running production change. Either way, they should arrange an exchange program for those fans who purchase the disc in the meantime. IF the studios take quick steps to correct the disc and make things right with fans who purchase it, that will go a very long way toward restoring confidence in the Sapphire line. IF that happens, the disc will have earned my highest recommendation. (Rest assured, I'll keep you up to date on this here on The Bits.) Until that time, just know that the video quality is disappointing and adjust your purchase plans accordingly.

Christmas (Noel) version of Gladiator.

worth it just for the brand new shiny tin, which play.com will undoubtedly damage in transit :)

plus if the Blu Ray transfer isn't that good, just buy the new 1 (when it is released) and put that disk in this nice tin and sell the other 1, as these limited tins usually quite expensive anyway.
#7
If you are desperate to have a tin gather dust on your shelves instead of a plastic case, then the tin will cost you a tenner and you can buy the new transfer release later this year. Awesome.
#8
The transfer's not bad - it's just hidden under plenty of noise reduction. Recommended to avoid this edition.
#9
I'll wait for a re-release, and keep my 3 DVD edition till then.
#10
The automatic noise reduction filter they ran the film thru was so strong, in the battle scenes with millions of arrows flying through the air the filter mistakes them for imperfections and marks on the "master" and attempts to remove them - badly. That, plus half the cast looking as if their faces are covered in vasoline due to noise reduction overkill (ok, maybe a SLIGHT exageration) makes this a really poor conversion - AVOID :x
#11
I bought this back when it was full price, unaware of the bad transfer! Obviously I was disappointed with the DVD itself, but the steely is pretty nice looking :)

Apparently there's extra/extended scenes that can be added via seamless branching that were untouched by DNR, if it wasn't bad enough already. Its as if they are saying, we could have given you this, but we felt the need to use our expensive DNR machines.

The re-mastered version of this movie is due out on Blu later in the year I believe.

I'll wait for that.
