Movie Reviews

Superb quality DVD
Laurence G. Dorning | New York State | 02/10/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Solomon and Sheba" is one of the great biblical epics. Not great in the sense that the dialog is sharp and witty ot the acting something not to be missed. Great in the sense that this is a reminder that back in the 50's biblical epics were taken seriously, as solid entertainment. The production is beautiful-gorgeous massive sets-even if it's very obvious that they are sets. And there is lots of spectacle(the final battle scene is a sight to behold) and plenty of religious fervor and vengeance. But the real reason for my writing this is the quality of the DVD. This is one of the best DVD's I have ever seen. the picture is as clear as if it had just been made and the colors are sharp and bright throughout. I have the widescreen version on VHS and debated whether or not to replace it-I am really glad I did. They simply cannot compare. One comment: it is a shame that the great score by Mario Nascimbebe is not available on a compact disc(With the exception of a horrible sounding import where it is paired with "This Vikings"-avoid this disc if you ever see it). Nascimbene was a truly innovative composer for this genre and his music deserves to be heard."
