Out Of Africa repackaged, reduced price, Blu-ray version?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I noticed the Out Of Africa Blu-ray has been repackaged in a regular case and re-released at a lower price point ($20). It still contains a DVD and UV. The UPC is 025192045554.
Can anyone please confirm that this package contains the much improved reissued Blu-ray from the 100th Anniversary Collection of last year?
Many thanks, Trevor.

It's the same disc - it still has the Universal 100th Anniversary banner and altered cover art from the fixed version. They've just ditched the digibook.

Isn't that the old version? The Amazon listing I find for the release date of June 4, 2013 is $14.99.

Well I received the correct version of Out Of Africa according to the UPC number, I double checked before opening. I was generally impressed with the picture quality but it does look processed and unfilm like from time to time, with waxy complexions. Admittedly I don't have a high res system just a Samsung 720p plasma and Sony Blu-ray but other Blu-rays have looked far more film like.
Am I being overly picky or could it be this price reduced Blu-ray is the original highly criticized version?
Just wonderin', Trevor.

I'm betting its the old, inferior, version. Nothing waxy about the re-mastered version. Looks beautiful.

Why would they re-release an old master? Perhaps they had a boat load of unprinted discs on hand? Has anyone done a side by side comparison? Can anyone tell me how to identify discs definitively?
Trevor.
P.S. I don't have a Blu-ray drive in my PC.

When you first made this inquiry in August I ended up buying the Digibook version of the movie since it was only $12. Different UPC code from the June 2013 issuance. It's sitting on my pile of Blu-rays to watch so I can't give you my rating of the PQ. Don't believe there would be any reason they would swap discs between the 2012 and 2013 releases.

Cinema Squid has the complete listing on this movie.
