    Bummer! I was looking forward to this on Blu-ray..

    Here's details from www.blu-ray.com

    "There is a bit of controversy with one of today's releases, so I'm just going to get this out of the way as quickly as possible to avoid any further distraction. While not a horrible presentation, the Blu-ray release of ‘Gladiator' does not live up to the promise of Paramount's Sapphire Series to “present each cinematic gem in the highest quality.” The studio used a clearly outdated master for this release......."

    The flip-side of this is the Braveheart release is apparently one of the best video/audio Blu-Ray discs produced to date. Personally, I may pick up Braveheart, but I'm going to wait on Gladiator to see if Paramount goes back and does it right....

    Apocalypto was awesome, too, as far as one of the best video/audio Blu-Ray.

    I bought this at BestBuy for $17.99 along with Braveheart for $17.99 as a two BluRay deal. Each disc also has a $10 rebate if you already have the DVD (which I do). Mrs. Smiddy and I are going to watch Braveheart again this evening.

    Gladiator is one of my all time favorites, so I'm sad to hear the release is not the best quality. I'll wait for a better release before I buy. In the mean time, I'll just watch the HD recording I have on my DVR

    I did the same thing today and also used a BB 10% off coupon, which you're not supposed to use for new releases, but they gave it to me anyway. Also had $10 in BB Reward bucks. $25 out the door for both movies.

    I'm going to wait several months until they go to special. I already own both movies on DVD.
