Waterloo (1970)

Recommended Posts

This has to be the most anticipated bluray release for Napoleonic fans. We have VHS and DVD for decades but only bluray or even 4K can give this movie justice due to its scale of production with over ten thousand soldiers involved. 


Rumor has it that studio would release it in 2015 to celebrate the 200th anniversary but nothing happened. Some say all good quality prints were lost due to the lower than expected box office compare to the huge budget back in the day so we have no choice but live with the poor quality DVD forever. But I am happy to finally see Germany release it in glory and hopefully other countries will follow suit. 

 

PQ is surprisingly good for a movie of its age. Audio is also a big step up from DVD in English DTSHD 5.1. Special feature is limited to trailer and stills from cinema promotions. Happy to see everything is in English including subtitle which is lacking in DVD. Hopefully they will make it into 4K UHD bluray someday but I must say this is more than good enough for now.

Sorry for the late reply. I bought it off ebay and paid 30 AUD with free shipping but the listing is now ended. That was the groovesland ebay store and I don't know why they say the release date is now 31 Dec 2019 and delivery is 35-42 working days. How much did you pay for yours?

Not bad. Hope you don't have to wait long as groovesland said to receive it. Please tell us when you get it and your thoughts.

Yeah my experience with ALL German online stores shipping is SOOOO slow. Amazon DE as well, when they still shipped here. I'm waiting on a couple from Grooves myself.

 

Still wish I could find a good retailer from France. Fnac shipping is so high.

I remember it took 3 weeks for the groovesland ebay store to deliver my order so it is acceptable in my case. May be they are all in stock and ready to ship when they list them on ebay to make a difference.

It seems like a hard to find item now. Not even ebay has it anymore. Only place I can find is grooves.land and hope their release date of 31 Dec 2019 is real. Good luck. 

 

And I have also bought the epic 7 hours War and Peace from Amazon US to complete my childhood dream.

Happy to see Waterloo got a local release of 1000 units with deluxe slipcase so as a fan I can't help grabbing one.  

 

The Aussie release has a special feature that talks about the background of the movie which is very informative and not on the German import. But missing so many like chapter menu, galleries, foreign languages and subtitles (not even English). So it is hard for me to choose one over the other.

Yes the local one is from JB and they have 30% off just for today so better grab it fast. 

 

On the first day of release all 3 of my local JB has no stock so I have to buy online and paid extra for postage.
