    Great film in a beautiful package.

    Posted .

    The film is beautiful and this blu-ray edition of it does it the images of the background and characters justice. Packaging wise, it could have been better. This is a standard metalpak, which differs from a steelbook in how the case's spine is put together. Metalpaks have hinces that protrude forward off the case itself instead of a Steelbook having a flat metal spine. This wouldn't be worth mentioning if it weren't for the fact a Steelbook edition of this film exists. It contains the same film, extras and even the same image on the cover and back that the metalpak one here does, but it's just not in the generic case. If you're a fan, you may want to opt for the steelbook edition elsewhere.

    Great Classic Film

    Sidney Lumet said in his book making movies that there would always be three top directors at any given point in time and no matter who the other two are David Lean would be the third and this movie is why. Epic in scope and all other aspects Lawrence of Arabia is what all films want to be. The quality of this transfer is beautiful with a wonderful score. This movie is a must watch for any film fan.

    EPIC GRANDEUR-EPIC STORY-EPIC PETER O'TOOLE

    Posted .

    This is truly one of the best uses of narural scenery, background music scoring and storytelling that only the combined talents of the modern day film industry could succeed in bringing together as they fictionalize the true events that portray the dramatic life and times and series of events of the real-life historical T.E. Lawrence. It also took this epic-structured sentence to review and do justice to this 'must-have' film in your collection as one of the greatest films ever made! (Applause, thank you!)

    While I already own a copy of this movie, I couldn't pass up the steel book version. Best Buy is second to none with their collectible packaging. The movie is obviously one of the more celebrated of all time, chronicling the military life of T.E. Lawrence and his rise to becoming one of the most influential leaders in history. The cast, lead by Peter O'Toole and Omar Sharif, shine in this film. The cinematography is astonishing and the landscapes are beautiful, even when they're being decimated by war. A perfect film for a rainy afternoon.

    For a modern audience the movie may seem slow, but this film stands the test of time and finds an exalted plane on Blu-Ray format. All the reasons one would want a Blu-Ray player in the first place are demonstrated in this wonderful release.

    Definitive example of a masterpiece classic epic.

    Posted .

    A must have addition for any film lovers collection. I personally find this film close to being an example of the perfect epic. with the highest standards in cinematography, acting, script, directing and writing employed. This Movie was crafted with respect for the subject matter and the audience. It serves as a good history lesson explaining partially how the arabic world of today came to be. the closest I can come to any criticism is that the pacing could seem a bit different to persons who are used to the 'fast food' pacing and quick takes found in modern flicks. This film is meant to envelope the audience in its world and be savored by the viewer like a full course meal.

    A tale of a dual hero to his own & others.

    Peter O'Toole , Alec Guinness , Omar Sharif , all great actors , head a large cast of characters in this epic tale. Since 1962 , this film has always been a classic of large movie making. A single modest man that becomes a desert military icon respected by the English military and loved by the Arab people. Its a true Hollywood movie spectacle as made during the 60s. Beautiful colorful presentation , great sets . If you haven't seen it , you must put it on your " to get " list.

    One of the best gift sets of all time.

    Lawrence of Arabia is one of the greatest epics (if not the greatest epic) of all time, But that is not the only reason why this gift set is awesome. It comes with a book about the making of the movie and the restoration process with never before seen behind the scenes pictures, an authentic film cell, and a four disc set: Disc 1 is the movie, Disc 2&3 are the Bonus features, and the fourth disc is the sound track. In other words, if you haven't bought this gift set, BUY IT!

    A Masterpiece

    Posted .

    One of the greatest motion pictures on Earth comes home on Blu-Ray disc. It's one of the most sweeping adventures of all time committed to film. The story of one man's struggle in the desert as externalized by his own quest to unite the Arab armies against the Turks all amid British influence is a fascinating tale. One feels as though one is in the desert and experiences the hypnotic quality of doing so while one watches the picture. It is a trip like "2001 A Space Odyssey" and is much an experience to undergo the process of watching the film as it is to experience the story.

    Epic Film on Blu Ray with All Star Cast

    |
    Posted .

    There is a reason this film achieved 7 Academy Awards...Great Story, Great Cast and Over the Top Cinematics with no CGI. The under 30 crowd may not appreciate what this epic film has to offer, but so many things have graduated from here. Peter O' Toole, Alec Guiness, Anthony Quinn, Omar Sharif, Claude Rains and more round out this EPIC cast. "From small things are great beginnings..." I recently was watching the Alien prequel Prometheus where this movie was referenced and admired by the android named David. At this price...just had to get it.

    Perfect cinematography and cast

    Before seeing this film, I didn't think I could've been missing much from the world of movies because I've seen thousands of them including most films considered classics. When I saw this Blu-ray for such a low price, I had to check it out. I couldn't have been more pleased with this purchase. With vast shots of the sprawling desert and perfectly shot symmetrical scenes, Lawrence of Arabia is a beautiful epic masterpiece of film that boasts an extremely talented cast with an equally entertaining story. Also recommended: Dr. Zhivago

    The Original Epic

    |
    Posted .

    Lawrence of Arabia is a true classic and a groundbreaking epic long before those words became just overused marketing ploys. From F.A. Young's breathtaking cinematography and Maurice Jarre's now-classic soundtrack to Peter O'Toole's impeccable personal portrait and David Lean's remarkable direction, Lawrence of Arabia dazzles with both depth and breadth, and is the standard by all subsequent epics can be measured. Great picture quality on the Blu-Ray release, a worthwhile upgrade even from the excellent Superbit DVD edition.

    A cinematic masterpiece that is only enhanced by this Blu-ray presentation. See it on as big a screen as you can. It will be worth it. And it is even a history lesson as a bonus.

    Excellent film

    This digital restoration marks its anniversary. Most striking, still, are the desert scenes: battles yes, but also the film’s harnessing of the searing, inhuman heat of the sandy wilds, first introduced by Lean’s famous cut from a striking match to a rising sun. O’Toole, too, remains compelling, as he swings between arrogance and humility, confidence and doubt. You’ll need to dedicate half a day to it – but this deserves to be seen again on the big screen.

    If you don't already own this release, I would thoroughly recommend it. Plenty of special features, and one of the most meticulous restorations you'll see. The AQ and PQ and fantastically true to the source, with nary a frame out of place.
