The DN-LTK (Cork/Scivally) making of docos are top notch, after that, they're mostly studio presented drivel.

Watching CR and I'm filled with the old pangs of guilt......... For years OHMSS was my clear
Favourite Bond film. Then along comes CR  ajb007/martini  and I feel almost "unfaithful" to OHMSS by
Loving it so much .
I guess I'll have to have two favourite Bonds.  ajb007/lol  I regard both films so highly, not just because
Of Bond, but as I think they can stand alone as simply great movies.  I can rewatch then many
Times and still keep finding new things to enjoy.

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Please I need some advice from the very knowledgeable folks on this forum as to which Bond blu ray to buy.  I can't afford to buy a boxed set of the blu rays releases, and am looking at buying one, two or three a month depending on cost.

I live in the uk and the descriptions of the films on amazon is confusing.  There's a 2013 blu ray and a 2015 blu ray. 

Some versions of Casino Royale apparently have an edited torture scene, whereas the double deluxe release is complete, is that correct? 

I need help to be pointed in the right direction please. 

I have the Ultimate DVD boxed set, which are all double discs.

Are all those extras included in both of the blu ray releases? 

Many of the 2013 Blu Rays are available for less than £5, Dr No I think I can buy for about £4.50, but I don't want to buy it if it's the wrong option.  There's another blu ray release for £9.99 

Any advice would be most welcome.  Many thanks.

In case anyone is interested all the Bond films as a collection are available on google play movies
in HD for £109.99 .............  I just purchased them ....  On the quiet, as my wife would be rolling

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Tonight I watched FYEO and LTK on Google movies and I'm really impressed
with the HD content. The colours are really punchy, but not over done, with
terrific detail. So I'm really pleased with my purchase. ajb007/smile

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Watching LALD tonight, I only heard for the first time as Felix tries to smooth
things over with Mr Bleeker after Bond took the wings off. You can clearly hear
" Son of a Bitch" over the phone. Either I've got better speakers or I've simply
never heard it before  ajb007/lol

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

I only saw the Bond films on Blu-ray when the BOND 50 box arrived in 2012. So 2013 saw me watching all of them in HD for the first time.

A year ago I got a new TV set, a 4K, 65" Samsung curved TV plus a 4K Samsung Blu-ray player which up converts Blu-rays to 4K resolution. It also features "True Colour" which is a software that makes the colours be breathtakingly beautiful.

Both times it was like discovering the Bond films anew. I can only recommend it.

I also watched Goldfinger in 3D one time as the TV can convert 2D into 3D and it actually works quite well. It worked with Goldfinger but I realised it's nothing I would want to do regularly after I tried it out with QOS  ajb007/lol

Here some pics I took while the films were running. I need to mention that seeing it for real is much better even.

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

The early films look insanely good on the latest Blu-ray releases, in particular DN, TB and OHMSS.

The later films IMO already looked quite clear based on the more modern production, so aren't as impressive. However, the models in MR look even better...

@BJB006,

I think that you need to calibrate your tv - the colours are farr too extreme and contrast is too high. I have sent you a pm.

I wonder how long it actually took them to 'restore' the movies to bluray standard? The latter ones would be already done for them, but the early ones must have taken a few years...

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Most were restored to 4K masters before the bluray releases and downscaled to 2K so 4k releases shouldn't be too hard to release.
