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

Didn't know that  ajb007/martini

I'd expect the 4K versions out within two years...

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Looks like the german release - cover text is german at least.

As far as I know the denish market receives he original version with denish subtitles.

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Come to think of it, that is the German cover - I'm at work so pulled the image offline - I'll have to check when I get home. Really in the mood to watch it now, possibly because I really need a holiday and some Jamaican sun and Red Stripe beer would go down well right now!

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Reading through " Some kind of hero" , I quickly had to rewatch TMWTGG  as on reading the
Relevant chapter. I was informed of a mistake I'd never noticed before !  This may be common
Knowledge to many but new to me  ajb007/biggrin
   I can't believe after hundreds of viewings I'd never noticed ....... When Bond lands his sea plane
The left wings " flotation "  arm is missing ( as it had been damaged during filming ) . Meaning
The pilot had to be very, very skilled to land the thing at all . ajb007/martini

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

ajb007/lol
I started taping them off the telly, then bought the vhs copies, then the wide-screen vhs.
Next came the DVDs, then dvd ultimate collection and now the Blu-ray collection as well
As having them copied to several memory cards in my phones and tablets. I also bought the
HD  versions on Google Movies.
  Each time my wife would ask " what's different with this set ?"  ..... She doesn't know about me
Buying the digital downloads from Google.  ajb007/wink
Infact long before video, I used to tape them on to audio tape, to listen to them back at night.
Infact Higgins was doing that  in the cinema  ajb007/lol

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

I saw a sad sight today in my town High Street.

Early morning, outside a closed charity shop, a partially opened bag with VHS boxes of Bond movies literally spilling out onto the street. Goldfinger, AVTAK, LTK, all of them. People just walking by and looking down at them.

A home clearout?

Then again, maybe someone was upgrading to Steelbooks.

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Sad indeed  ajb007/crap , I gave mine ( VHS copies ) to a young kid close to where I live who had
an interest in the Bond films........  but still kept all my DVDs  ajb007/wink

Well I found a way to present my Bond ranking in yet another different way...  ajb007/lol

From my No 1 OHMSS to my No 24 Skyfall here are all the Blu-ray covers of the US Blu-ray single disc releases in 2015.

There is something special in this, let's see who finds it first  ajb007/bond

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

The white band doesn't work for me, I would've preferred if they it if they had made steel-books for every movie.
That said, I haven't gotten around to getting the steel-books. The YOLT/Eyes Only ones look perfect, IMO.
So far, the only one that I have is the Kill Bill Vol 1, one.

Loved the movie, loved the artwork, bought it.

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

That's a great one. I actually almost only buy steelbooks. Not sure how many I own, but must be close to 200.

Naturally I own all Bond steelbooks ever released, even the "Daniel Craig Collection" steelbook. I don't care if I own the films already 6 times or so  ajb007/lol

I love the 9 "Spectre" steelbooks. I wish they had released all the Bond films in that design. 12 Bond films have received steelbook version, the additional three are Goldfinger, GoldenEye and Spectre.
