Now, a bit more than two years later, they arise anew, and there are two differences in Gladiator – a lovely steelbook, and a new finish on the 4k disc, now more of a delicate satin finish as opposed to matte. I can live with either, but in some cases I prefer the more satiny look.
The release is $5 more, a slight uncharge for the steelbook and satin finish, and should be a buy for anyone who doesn’t yet have a 4k copy, or those who collect steelbooks.
As they say in those TV ads, great new package – same great taste!<br />
My initial review gave the following ratings:
Image – 5 (Dolby Vision)
Audio – 5 (DTS:X)
Pass / Fail – Pass
Upgrade from Blu-ray – Yes<br />
Upgrade from previous 4k – Only if you’re a steelbook / matte finish fan
Very Highly Recommended
