I bought yesterday a Spartacus Special Edition that is seemingly available outside the US. It has the same Special features as the criterion (the only one not ported over is the restoration demonstration I think), the transfer is anamorphic and is almost identical too... and it has a DTS track to boot! only the color timing seems to differ, sometimes it's just barely noticeable, sometimes the difference is quite big, especially the opening credits which tend to look green on the Criterion, and my SE somewhat reflect the colors of the original US bare bones edition (I think, although the image as a whole is a great improvement). It seems to me that this is the exact transfer that Criterion used minus the new color timing that was a applied by Robert Harris. Everything else is the same. I found some comparisons between the Criterion and the Universal SE region 2 version (which looks the same to the one I have). I'd like to hear some comments from Robert Harris as to what does he think of the image quality here. The skin tones look too red at times in my opinion. Does anyone else own it?
