5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Blu Ray Transfer - Great extras June 23, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
As with most older movies transferred to blu-ray, I'm pretty sure that most people who would be buying this have already seen this great film, and have their own opinions of it.

So, this review is strictly about the quality and extras of the BLU-RAY.

Hands down, this is one of the best transfers I have seen of a movie this old. Most blu-rays seem of older movies seem to be patchy as far as quality goes, but this one is consistently great all the way through.

The extras are what really sets this apart though. Commentary by Malcom McDowell, A documentary about the film, and a making of!

A solid buy for fans of the movie - this is a significant upgrade over past DVD's, and for the first time I don't feel ripped off by a repurchase/upgrade.

On a side note, Come on Amazon! - Start filtering the product reviews for blu-rays. What is the point of listing ALL of the DVD reviews for the same title? Seems like it could be an easy fix - maybe they'll actually do it someday...

5.0 out of 5 stars A master film, by a master director December 16, 2001
Format:DVD
In 1964 director/producer Stanley Kubrick created the nuclear war comedic masterpiece "Dr. Strangelove: Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love The Bomb". He followed that with the science fiction masterpiece "2001: A Space Oddysee". Stanley Kubrick would reach his creative peak with his next film. An Adaption of Anothony Burgess'novel "A Clockwork Orange." Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange is one of those films that you will either love or hate. The film centers around the character of Alexander DeLarge (played to perfection by Malcolm McDowell) a 15 year old "droog" who with his friends Pete (Michael Tarn), Georgie (James Marcus), and Dim (Warren Clarke) drink Milk Laced with drugs at the local "Milkbar" and then go out on the town at night, doing horrible things to people. During one incident Alex is captured and taken to prison. He finds out about a treatment that can get him of prison. He goes through with the treatment (which will make him sick when he attempts to commit an act of violence), is released from prison and thrown back into the world, unable to defend himself. Out of all the things that make this movie great, the number one element is the performance of Malcolm McDowell as Alex. The entire movie revolves around him so if McDowell's performance isn't top notch then the movie isn't top notch. McDowell was in his late twenties when he made this movie. In the novel Alex is 15 years old. So although being much older then his character McDowell plays the adventureous youth wonderfully. Suprisingly McDowell was not nominated for an Academy Award. Another really strong element is the music. Never in my life have I seen a movie (non musical) where the music plays such an important role in a film. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant November 6, 2007
Format:HD DVD|Verified Purchase
In which high government officials are seen as the moral equivalents of street thugs (just better at p.r.), demonstrating that nothing has changed in 35 years.
This High Definition master (which is also the source of the BluRay disc release) is spectacular. This is how I remember the movie looking upon its original release in 1971. Pristine, startling, amazing.
Repeated viewings over the years of worn-out circuit prints, VHS and standard-def DVD had dimmed the movie's capacity to astonish. Now, in High Definition, the luminous brilliance, texture and color of the images are restored; and the richness of the images makes a tremendous difference to the film's impact. The sound is also excellent -- certainly superior to the original theatrical release in the days of optical soundtracks.
In addition to the beauty of the Hi-Def picture, this is worth owning because (at last) it is a close approximation of the original theatrical aspect ratio (screen shape) -- the theatrical presentation being, after all, the venue for which Kubrick composed his shots. (Ignore those who claim he meant this film to be seen in full-frame 1.33:1, as in all the previous home video releases. He clearly created it to be seen in theaters, and in theaters he had the image matted to 1.66:1, which is very close to the aspect-ratio of this BluRay.
Buy it; watch it on your big-screen 1080 HDTV in a dark room, uninterrupted. Real horrorshow!
This is a 2-disc "Special Edition," with the same extras as the standard-def DVD in the 2007 boxed set: commentaries, trailer, new interviews with Wm. Friedkin, Sydney Pollack, Malcolm McDowell, Wendy Carlos, Mrs. Kubrick, others.
Then take advantage of the long-awaited 2011 BluRay release of "Barry Lyndon" (1975), Kubrick's underappreciated masterpiece, which also benefits greatly from a beautiful High-Definition transfer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real Horrorshow November 4, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
One of the most powerful, thought provoking and disturbing movies of all time. Anyone who thinks that this movie glorifies or condones violence and rape just does not get it. Alex and his "droogs" are evil people. They are doing what comes naturally to them. This might not be right or moral, but the point is, they have to be able to choose between good and evil. The real horror of the movie is the technique used on Alex to render him a useless shade of a human being. You actually start to feel sorry for him even though he is a truly wicked person. Burgess' novel used a foreign language (Nadsat) to lessen the impact of the violence, but in the movie the violence must be shown for the full effect of the movie. I felt Kubrick chose well to leave out the last chapter of the BRITISH version because it would seem like such a tame way to end the movie after such a thrilling ride. You have to watch this movie with an open frame of mind or else you will only look at it superficially, which would be a big mistake my brothers.

What does Clockwork Orange mean ?
An orange, in British slang, refers to a man. A "Clockwork Orange" is a man with no individuality. He would be as predictable as clockwork.

Amen, that would be nice. They seem to do it that way with all of the Blu-Ray movies. Personally I'd like to know if it a Blu-Ray actually OFFERS something over the original DVD. Or did they just recycle the transfer to dVD the way the studios started off DVD by recycling laser-disc transfers,... Read More

Rumors. The X rated version IS the R rated version. Go here:

76 minutes? Say it isn't so!
It's just an error. There is only one version of the film in circulation. The R rated cut disappeared when the X version was released on an early VHS/Beta tape. And this is the only version in distribution since then.

I watched it just recently, I'm now 20. To be honest, I had no idea what the film was like when I decided to watch it.
