Great Bargain For $10
on June 12, 2014
i picked this up because it's my mother-in-law's favourite film. It won the Best Picture Academy Award in 1939, along with 9 other Academy Awards. It's an epic film indeed. For $10 you get the BluRay, the film on 2 DVD's, the download, and lots of bonus features, so it's a good bargain.
I can't really comment on the film itself. It's a classic and has some famous scenes and lines that we all know. To be honest, I find the film boring until Clark Gable appears, he steals every scene he's in. It definitely gets better as it goes on, but it's a long film and takes a while to get interesting... until then it feels like watching an old musical or play, everything feels too fake, too staged, even the acting. Gable makes it more real somehow.
The picture quality on the BluRay is very good and clean, but the colors seems highly exaggerated and overly bright. Not having previous versions to compare, I can't say whether it's correct or not.
