I can't stand Digibooks (I actively seek out the non-digibook versions whenever available, even if i have to shop internationally), but - I picked it up the Cleopatra one for $15 - the cover is just too gorgeous. I'll open it to check it out, but I probably will never even take the discs out - usually I'm not so slap-happy and I think this is the first time I have double-dipped because of a package (I have had the UK Blu for years, which is the same transfer) but it's just too nice to not splurge on.
If you have to whip out a microscope to decide if you like a Blu-ray or not, you are missing the point.

I bought the Digibook version of this via Foxconnect and I watched the film in its entirety today for the first time ... absolutely fantastic movie! Truly an amazing film to watch, just check out the "procession" scene into Rome and you'll know what I mean.

Ah, if only the Blu-ray looked like those pictures! I think the colour has been mucked about with, most of the yellow has been removed (the gold in it looks nothing like the second picture), & Cleopatra's entry into Rome looks far too cold. It's nothing like the disaster that is, The King And I, but it's not right.

Cleopatra on BD looks beyond stunning most of the time. Only some of the battle sequences look a bit rougher than the rest.
It's a beauty to behold.

From memory isn't there a blue tint?

Besides that I thought it was pretty stunning when I saw it.
I aim to misbehave....

Yesterday, I watched my 20th Century Fox Blu-ray of Cleopatra.



Cleopatra, which stars Elizabeth Taylor in the title role while she was at the height of her sexiness, along with Rex Harrision as Julius Caesar and Richard Burton as Mark Antony, was the most expensive film of its era, almost bankrupting 20th Century Fox, and, even today, when considering inflation adjustments, still stands as one of the most extravagant film productions in history. The much-publicized offscreen relationship between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton was one of the many scandals of the nightmare production, and, at one point, Taylor was even denounced by Congress and condemned by the Vatican for "erotic vagrancy." The film, which premiered with a running length of over four hours, was popular for its time, but is mainly remembered now with ridicule, and used as an example of studio bloat run amuck.

When viewed today in 2017, however, Cleopatra is a visual marvel of a film with an attention to detail that outshines anything in contemporary cinema. These days, we're sadly accustomed to seeing large-scale battle scenes with computer-generated digital people in the background. In this film, however, we are shown massive battle scenes with real honest-to-goodness actual people people type people in the background as far to the horizon as the eye can see. One particular sequence, where Cleopatra arrives in the city of Rome with a massive procession, is one of the most crazy awesome things that I've ever seen in a film. (I don't know if Cleopatra had such a procession in real life, but I hope that she did.) Thanks to the direction of Joseph L. Mankiewicz, however, Cleopatra manages to be a surprisingly intimate film that places its characters above the images and that even comes across like a stage play much of the time. The costumes are truly a sight to behold.

Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, and Rex Harrison are all pretty amazing, but Roddy McDowall steals the show as Octavian. Martin Landau is quite impressive as Rufio. I also loved seeing a young Francesca Annis (Dune, Macbeth) as Cleopatra's handmaiden.

While watching Cleopatra, I often found myself wondering about what it would have been like to have participated in the production. When I worked as a background extra on the set of Captain America: Civil War a couple of summers ago, I was hugely impressed with the lunch tent, which had every kind of food that anyone could possibly want. I'd love to have seen the food catering for Cleopatra, because they probably had a great spread every single day with some amazingly lavish meals. To go back in time to the filming of this epic movie, just to hang out at the catering tent during meals...that would be quite nice.

This Blu-ray sports a stellar presentation across the board, with pretty much flawless picture quality and audio quality. If you watch this movie, then you have to watch the extras. The feature-length documentary, Cleopatra: The Film That Changed Hollywood, is a must-see. The commentary track is quite nice as well, despite some stretches of silence.

Ha, I really don't like the look of the Blu-ray, it looks far too cool & drab for me, just look at caps 6 & 8, but I know I'm in the minority, most people think it looks great.

20th Century Fox Blu-rays have always been hugely controversial for this reason. I personally applaud the incredible detail and colors on these discs, but many people complain about blueish tints, cool color timing, and such.

It's tough to say what is "correct", but I'm inclined to take the Blu-rays at face value over the DVD presentations.

I was very disappointed with the BD transfer. The sand looks grubby, the sky looks grey-green, the dress togas look like they've been put through a hot wash with something light blue, and (most critically) the opulent gold in sequences like the procession into Rome looks more like brass. With people claiming they can't see it, it's like an episode of the Emperor's New Teal. I just cannot believe that's how the film is meant to look.

But you don't have to claim the DVD is right to be able to say the BD is wrong. Apart from the fact that it's not a simple binary either/or -- either a teal-leaning BD or a magenta-leaning DVD -- we know the colour space issues with DVDs are a technical limitation, but we've seen enough BDs that don't have this problem to know that there it must be an intentional choice. I find it very frustrating, when it diminishes (imo) the visual impact of a film like this one.

I watched my copy for the first time two months ago and was blown away by the spectacle and presentation.

These iphone screen grabs from my 120" projected image are a bit more colorful than some I've seen...

The blu does look too cool, but the DVD looked way too bright and oversaturated. I'm sure the truth on the image is somewhere in between, but I'm OK with the Blu-ray.

The CLEOPATRA disc is really just dialled back and doesn't have any of the really obnoxious blue tint that some of the other Fox discs have. The Criterion of VALLEY OF THE DOLLS and a lot of the Marilyn Monroe collection discs have a terrible blue push and the worst is the Twilight Time THE BEST OF EVERYTHING where the colour changes actors ethnicity and they have glowing blue eyes. It's really distracting on those discs.
