Good movie, but not very historical — 6 years ago
I watched Elizabeth after reading a “Royal Diary” from Scholastic and getting interested in her life (I didn’t know much about English monarchy). It’s a good movie, obviously very “fictionized” and a bit hard to understand if you don’t have much backstory. Nonetheless, I had an okay time watching it, and I like Joseph Fiennes very much.
The DVD in itself is all right, the picture and sound quality could be better but I am not really demanding. The extras were pleasing to watch, but showing their 10-year oldness. It’s also a bit weird that this movie has a slipcover claiming the movie to be in the “Academy Award Winners” collection, since it mentions only winning Best Makeup. I know it was nominated for Best Picture, but that’s no reason to put in the Winners collection. Anyway, the slipcover still is good and fits with the others, so I don’t mind so much, eh.
