Re: Bond Bluray Film Club

It looks like as of Jan 1st 2018, Hulu has lost the license for streaming the Bond films.

Are they available on any streaming platform?

I own them all on Blu Ray now (Christmas present) but I still find myself in situations where I am browsing for them on Hulu or Netflix and now cannot find them anywhere.

I wonder if Netflix will get them because they've recently got Spectre...

Amazon Prime has SPECTRE in 4K HDR. It looks spectacular on my 55" Sony 4k HDR TV. Would love to see Bond films being streamed in 4K HDR. Amazon has some other Bond films, but not in 4K HDR.

Re: Bond Bluray Film Club

With my schedule, often times I only get a chance to watch half of a movie before bed and then finish it the next night. After powering down my Blu-ray player it still remembers my spot on DVDs, but for some reason the Bond Blu-rays all start from scratch. This is super annoying as I have to wait for the main menu to load and the navigate the (rather poor) scene selection.

Is this a fault of the Bond discs or the player itself?

Re: Bond Bluray Film Club

Do you have memory cards installed in your players? I do, but the only Bond blu-rays that bookmark their stopping point are Skyfall and Spectre (ironically, the two I least watch). Other blu-rays have no problem picking up where I left off.

That’s odd considering Blu-ray are more advanced.

Because of this I watched my special edition DVD of TWINE the past 2 nights.
As a bonus I found a sealed envelope tucked away in the boxset that has Pierce on the cover and it’s a sweepstakes to win a free vacation. Should I open it????

Personally I would leave it closed, there is nothing cool in there ( i opened mine in 97 ) if you won its too late, and it is kind of cool that you have an unopened one  ajb007/martini

Re: Bond Bluray Film Club

Is there a way to buy a digital Bond boxset on Amazon prime video?
Right now the only option I see is to buy them individually for $14 each. *Ouch*

Also, the heavily airbrushed looking cover art on some of the films is embarrassing.
Especially Live and Let Die, it looks like they added some bushy eyebrows on Roger.
Also a bad choice for a cover photo to begin with because it contains a spoiler. (pointing a gun at Rosie)

I can't agree more with you on that, it looks superb I've just watched it this afternoon.  One thing I picked up is why does Bond tell Henderson that it's his first trip to Japan, when in FRWL he clearly states that both himself and M had been to Tokyo. 

Confused to say the least, and the only explanation for me is that Roald Dahl was unfamiliar with the Bond films but probably read the novel YOLT where I think it is Bonds first trip to Japan.  A long time since I watched it and have to say I really enjoyed it especially on Blu-ray.

Yes, that's a famous continuity error of the early Bond films, most likely for the reasons you state. Quite what Bond and M got up to in Tokyo is another matter entirely!   ajb007/amazed

Re: Bond Bluray Film Club

Speaking of Blu Rays, I cannot help but wonder if they are plans to start putting the films on 4K Blu Rays in the near future.
While I am perfectly happy with the standard Blu Rays, I know that 4K is getting popular for people that have the money to spend on them. Many popular movies once they appear on 4K get new bonus features, which QOS, SF, and SP could defiantly use since they are really skimpy on the bonus features side.
