*Remastered* Gladiator 10th Anniversary Pics and Comparison (Dutch BD) - Page 40

post #1171 of 1203
I'd assume it's still going on. Don't see why they would stop since the remastered versions aren't being sold in stores yet. At least not that I've heard up here in Toronto. Till then I'd guess that you can still exchange your original DISC 1 for the remastered. Which I just watched last night in it's entirity. Finally.

No pausing anywhere on the disc. Not chapter 15 or any where. Maybe for the one who had this problem it was his BD player?

Glad I have my remastered copy. No need to be concerned about the PQ any more.

An increasing number of people on Blu-ray.com's Canada forum are saying that they bought the yellow UPC version and ended up with the original disc.

Thought it would be safe at this point to order disk from Amazon expecting I'd receive the remastered version. What I got was the yellow barcode label, no '2 disk' wording above the Paramount logo on the outer dust sleeve, BUT it does have the wording on the inner clamshell. Copyright is for 2000/2005 and not 2010. I think I can assume I have the original crappy release so its going back. This is ridiculous.

I've just found what is the problem between the Gladiator Remastered blu ray disc and my Panasonic bdp-80 blu ray player, there seems to be a problem between the DTS HD Master audio option and the player, when I choose the dolby digital spanish 5.1 option I have 0 freezes and pixelations on chapter 14, now I wonder if this is a disc defect or a conflict between the player's firmware and the DTS HD option.... I have the same problem with the Alien DVD, the player won't play the DTS version but the dolby digital 5.1 plays fine...

Perhaps they're re-printing the outer slipcover using the old template. Wouldn't the cover (and its yellow UPC) for the Amaray case be more integral to determining if it's the new version or not?

Sounds like you got the new version. Take a deep breath and forget about the slipcover.

Look at the Paramount logo in the bottom right corner of the actual case. Look under the copyright that you saw, and in fine print it says "TM & (C) 2010 DW Studios LLC and Universal Studios"

The old disc says "2009"

I've ordered it from AmazonUK, & it came to about $20AUD including shipping.

(This is after I received confirmation & assurance from AmazonUK that i'd be getting the remastered version).

So AmazonUK has the new version now? Sweet. Is it under the same listing as the old version?

Thanks

This is the item I ordered as it was the very same I included in the email I sent to AmazonUK, asking if i'd get the remaster.

Check out the 2nd cover image - it explains that if there's a Pocket-Blu logo on the back, then you're safe to remove the wrapping. I really hope I don't get stooged here.

btw, not sure of the Region-A compatibility, so you Americans better confirm this before ordering.

Every single Universal Blu-ray ever released ever has been region ABC, and this no different. For Universal and Warner discs, you never have to ask, they are always region free

OT, but this isn't quite true. There are some European Warner and Universal discs that are locked. I have Warner France's A Very Long Engagement disc (I have no trouble playing it, though).

But Gladiator is fine.

I don't consider those "true" Warner releases. A Very Long Engagement has AVC and DTS-MA, when Warner never uses AVC and used TrueHD at the time. Mostly likely they are produced by a local studio, and only distributed by Warner

I don't really disagree, but when you start making blanket statements like "For Universal and Warner discs, you never have to ask, they are always region free", it could lead to someone getting stuck with a Region B disc with no way to play it.

If anyone can comment, can I order this one? I just want to make sure its not the old transfer.

The disc is identical for the following countries:
- UK
- Denmark
- Finland
- France
- Germany
- Italy
- Netherlands
- Norway
- Portugal
- Spain
- Sweden

Therefore the answer is YES!

okay I just got my copy from amazon (along with Stagecoach which for some stupid reason is not available in Canada!).... Here goes:

-inner ring: NA13081B1R2
-no mention of "2-disc set"
-white UPC
-$10 coupon

...am I good?


I didn't bother with the exchange program and bought it a second time; kinda want to make sure I have the proper disc!
post #1191 of 1203
...well... I just checked the first 15mn yesterday.....





...right from the first images in the title sequence the difference is striking. Arrows are back!!! Anyways, I won't repeat what's probably been said numerous times about the remaster, but I'm glad that at last Paramount's "sapphire series" lives up to its name with this transfer. The film simply looks stunning, and it deserved no less.

(I put my old disc in my player for a quick and fresh comparison... what a joke!)

Is anyone aware of which Studio supervised the remastering, Paramount or Universal?

If its Universal, I would like them to put similar efforts for their catalog titles.

I believe it was Paramount, but don't quote me on that.

Any updated info on this? I've been wanting to buy this blu ray for several years but the first release sucked, and the new remastered release seems like a scavenger hunt to get.

Is there any easy way for me to visually inspect a sealed copy to tell if it's the good remastered one? It seems like a lot of the methods involve opening the disk up.

I dont want to spend 30 minutes on the phone trying to get paramount to replace my disk. I just want to buy it right to begin with.

BN has a 40% off coupon this week and I can get gladiator for $9 but I'm not wasting my time unless it's the right one.
post #1195 of 1203
try Amazon UK...that's where I got mine, and it's the new one...

As far as I can tell, no. Sometimes, remastered UPC is yellow, sometimes not. Sometimes it says '2-disc set' sometimes not. I would guess amazon only has the right version by now. Paramount never wanted to admit they messed it up, unlike Saving Private Ryan which did have a technical glitch iirc. So the newer, fixed version was easily recognizable (yellow upc), with Gladiator they never bothered officially announce a remastered version as a replacement of the previous release. I hope you end up with the right one, you will be discovering the film again!

I found the Gladiator/Braveheart 2 Pack Blu Ray on Amazon for $14.

I already owned Braveheart, but Amazon lets you trade them in for $5.60 as of today. So I traded in Braveheart and ordered the 2 pack.

The reviews state that it appears to be remastered versions in the 2 pack.

Net price to me is $8.40 for Gladiator.

I didn't know where else to post this question and didn't want to start a new thread so here goes.

Does anyone know if the Gladiator that is included in the 3 Sapphire movie set (with Braveheart & Saving Private Ryan) is the newly remastered version and NOT the old DNR'd version?

From another thread and an Amazon review:

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!

Thanks but that doesn't really help me much. I don't want to have to buy the disc to look to see if it has the right number or not. I was hoping maybe someone else had bought this set and could verify what it contains. I was wondering if the were bundling the old version in this set to get rid of them.
