Have fun Thunderpussy! I'd be interested to know what you think compared to the Blu-Rays when you've had chance to enjoy them!

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Not going in to too much detail, as I don't know much about the technical side of 4k video, but as
an average punter, I'm very happy. The picture quality really is a bump up from the standard Blu-ray,
better contrast, detail and richer colours.With HDR helping with the highlights and darker scenes.
Sound quality is the same 5.1 dts, and nothing new in the extras. I think Skyfall looks the best, maybe
because it was shot digitally instead of film ? ( I may be wrong there, but I think it was )

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Skyfall and Spectre look the best because their digital intermediate was finished at 4K. Casino Royale and Quantum were finished at 2K and up-scaled to 4k for this UHD release.

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Watching the desert scenes in SPECTRE, you can really notice the improvements with HDR, the
highlights are much better controlled.  ( Only my opinion, I could be wrong )  ajb007/wink

Pausing OHMSS today, at the end, where the  dog
Runs over to Bond. In this wide format, I noticed a
Guy in a blue jacket, and what looks like a name badge
Or pass of some sort on his jacket. I'm guessing  he
Was the dog trainer ?

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

I have a new subscription service with my new cable TV plan called EPIX which is owned by MGM and they are featuring many of the Bond films on demand in 4K HDR. Fortunately, I have been upgraded to a 4K HDR cable box so along w/ my 4K HDR TV I can take advantage of the 4K. I only had a chance to watch the TB PTS and have to say that it is superior to the Blu Ray in overall picture quality.
The contrast ratios are superior and black looks much more "black" rather than the grey that passes for black in lesser formats and the picture appears brighter and has a bit more definition and detail. Looking forward to checking out Skyfall and SPECTRE as their  their digital intermediates was finished at 4K. Good stuff.
With regards to 4K HDR, apparently the added pixels of 4K really only makes a difference with monitors 60" on up (I have a 55") the real difference maker with sets of any size is the HDR which really improves contrast ratio, widens/expands the color pallet and improves depth of field.

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Watched TSWLM on blu-ray last night and was disappointed that the Egypt scenes were not sandy yellow like I remembered them. Instead they were pale and white and all the warmth was gone. After the film ended I put in my old Special Edition DVD and it looked much better. Anyone else notice this?

I took a photo of each with my phone. I realize it’s not an exact science because the phone has its own auto white balance, but it still shows the top DVD warmer yellow than the bottom blu-ray being pale.

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

I must say that I just a little disappointed that QOS, SF, and SP did not get any new bonus features. All of them really deserve more than the small amount that we got before. If other popular movies can get new content on their 4K releases so can Bond.

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

I fully agree, I'm amazed at how little " Special features " we're getting lately. ajb007/crap

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

as a quick heads up:

On Vudu (in the USA, at least), you can buy all 24 EON Bond films for streaming for only $99.99 + tax.  That's $4.17 for each movie.  The format is 4K/UHD as well, about as good as you're going to get.
