Yes, it's gone quiet on this, very disappointing - it's essential viewing.
I'd pick it up if it was available. I was inspired by the 'story' and am intrigued by the controversy regarding the details and motivations of all the parties. I walked the 'grounds' for the first time in my life in '96 despite having been born only a couple of hours' drive away. I'm not sure if I saw this particular documentary but I've seen one that was very good. I hope this one comes to DVD...
Well it has been almost a year since the last post.
Any news on a possible DVD release or is Universal going to ignore this fine Mini-Series?!?
Put me on the list of folks interested in this particular epic, but ONLY IF it is in its entirety, and none of this shortened or edited crappola, either. I'm a big girl, I can handle it.
Well it has been 14 months since my last post about this mini-series.
So I repeat: any news on a possible DVD release or is Universal going to ignore this fine Mini-Series?!? Hmmm...............
I saw the miniseries when it originally aired. Even though I am a history buff, and really enjoy O'toole when he's good (and he was very good in MASADA), I found it to be rather overlong as a series. Also, I did not care much for Peter Strauss' performance as the Jewish leader.
However, when they released the video of the 2 hour-ish version, I quite liked it. So, while I would like to see the 2 hour version, I do not think I could make it through the miniseries again.
Edited versions of mini-series like the 2 hr version of "Masada" are a major travesty! I would not watch the 2 hr version if someone stapled my eyes open & ran the movie. PUT it OUT Universal!!
Yeah, I hate to actually support the editing of something. But, I just thought there was only a good 2 hr movie's worth of footage to be had out of that miniseries. But, I thought the 2 hours were quite good, though.
Ooh, I've love a DVD of Masada. I have the edited movie version on VHS (retitled "The Antagonists" here in England) but I've never to this day seen the whole thing.
Absolutely stunning score by some bloke called Jerry... something...! (Well, he did parts 1 and 2 at least, Morton Stevens did parts 3 and 4)
Universal has a deal with Shout! Factory for several series. Their miniseries like this (as well as Centennial and Rich Man, Poor Man) would be perfect for them.
BREAKING NEWS, FOLKS!
I am *SOOOO* happy to be the one with this scoop. For long-time HTF members who know me really well, you're expecting this:
YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (dances around the room, naked)
Fantastic news! I only saw it during its original broadcast when I was a teenager and never saw it afterwards! Hopefully they'll manage to create a superb transfer with the existing film elements.
It is about TIME!
Now if they would only release centennial and holocaust too the would be great!
Anyone know if this will be the full-lenght version or the shortened edited version that was first released on VHS?
Is there any word on extras such as a commentary, isolated music score, featurettes & whether there will be subtitles? THX!
Since this is from Koch International, a relatively small releasing company, I would doubt if there will be any isolated scores or commentaries. They are also releasing Anthony Hopkins "War and Peace and Dickens of London in the next few months.
Any reviews ? How's the image/sound ? Thanks.
