Re: SPECTRE Bluray & DVD

Ugh, even though this has been mentioned many times i'm going to bring it up again...the p**s poor special features/extras on the Spectre release are extremely disappointing! Over the past couple of days i've been having a marathon rewatch of all the Bond special features and, especially for a modern release, SP could've done so much better than just the two things. Just looking at Brosnan's four and Craig's three previous releases, all had between five and nearly twenty extras (Goldeneye and Skyfall, A+). I would love to have seen a substantial making off doco with lots more cast and crew interviews. The very short nine minute video blogs extra (of which a nearly two minutes was about Smith's theme, which is apparently "one of the greatest Bond songs in history" -BB) could definitely have been expanded to cover the whole of production.

That's an interesting observation you bring up because I remember both CR and SF have had the most special features of the Craig films. And they're the most successful and beloved of his films too. Not that QOS and SP were massive flops or anything but I wonder if there's any correlation between a Bond films success and the subsequent time put into it's home video release.

Watching the 4k version of SPECTRE, i think the HRD really helps control
the highlights in the desert sequences of the film.
