It seems the only definitive way to tell if you have the new version is to look at the innermost rings on the underside of Disc One itself. Hold it up to the light, and at the end of a string of letters and numbers, you should see "B1R2". If you have anything else (i.e. B1R1), you have the original version and NOT the remastered one!
If so, exchange it promptly.
I can say, without reservation, that she was absolutely gorgeous. The plot depicted, what I believe was the essence of betrayal fo thos times in history. Have watched thid movie over and over. Yes, I was mentally captured by the actors & actresses who were cast in fitting roles, but certainly gratefully I didn't live in those times in history. Although brutal, as today's politcal arena seems to be with treachery and cunning political charactors who thrive on power and control, are still cunning. Not only in our country, but devstates so many other countries. Gladiator was captivating and well written and cast. I have a good collection of movies from Amazon, but this leads my list of keeping me enetrtained as I'm a 78 year old shut-in, crippled by my own battles during 40 years in law enforcement with too many horror scenes I've witnessed in real life. The many people who out their creatvie abilities together to make this epic a classic, I applaud thme with high praise.
My question is regarding the disc.
I got this movie from Best Buy after price match over thanksgiving sale for $3.99.
This is what I noticed:
The case does not have an outer sleeve.
On the back cover, I see "2-DISC SET" above the paramount logo.
The UPC barcode is WHITE.
Upon opening the case, there are two grey discs.
I flipped DISC ONE over and held it up to the light. Needed my reading glasses but upon fine adjusting could finally make out the numbers to be NA13081B1R2 on the inner ring. I was relieved that they end in 'R2.'
However, I flipped DISC 2 over and I saw the numbers NA13081B1R1.
I was concerned so I scoured the web for reviews and screenshots.
I re-watched the opening scene and the movie name GLADIATOR appears black and stays black as it fades away.
The rest of the movie which I watched in THEATRICAL EDITION was great. I'm watching this on a 50" 1080P Panasonic plasma.
1. Is it true that I have the remastered version of the movie only?
2. Is it true that the DISC 2 is still the old version?
3. Should I keep what I have or try to get the all new steelbook version?
Any advice/opinions you might have, I'd be grateful if you leave your comments under this review.
The reviewers who received the same edition yet are still complaining about image quality may forget that this movie was shot 15 years ago, back in the days of film; Hence the grainy image in many scenes. I personally didn't find it to be annoying at all. I would definitely recommend this movie in its current edition to others. It is a solid transfer of a still great movie.
In my case, a movie can be 3 hours long (like this one), 4 hours long, 5 HOURS LONG, and filled with lots of dialogue, and some action scenes here and there, but as long as that dialogue keeps me immersed in the story, and those action scenes lead to something meaningful, that's my kind of movie. Gladiator in particular, fulfills all that criteria, and that's why I like it so much.
5 out of 5 stars.
