Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Is it too early to contribute?  I just watched DN on Blu-Ray a few weeks ago (and FRWL a couple of months before that), including the special features...I was inspired because I had just finished reading the Cinema Retro Magazine special on DN.  I don't really have a lot of comments except the nice transfer (or is it a mental suggestion because I was told it was a blu-ray disc?)  It just makes me wish a had a large TV and state-of-the-art sound system!

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Nice to know it's a good transfer. I too don't have a huge TV ( 32")
But you can still notice the better quality of bluray.  ajb007/martini

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

TP, can I assume that in the appropriate months, we just post our reviews (or whatever you like to call them) after viewing?

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Yes, I'm sure we've all seen them by now, So I don't think we have to worry about Spoilers.  ajb007/lol
So any time in July please feel free to give any opinions/views on the film/ content of DVD or Bluray.
Including any special features or commentaries, as I'm sure not all of us have watched every single
extra feature ( Although I'm certain some have  ajb007/wink  ), so who knows we might all learn something
hidden in the depths of the menus.  ajb007/lol
   I was wondering if anyone has a 3D Tv, which can give a 3D effect on non 3D  movies, as to what they
think, does it add anything to any scene in the series ?

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Oh Yes , ( to quote Churchill, the insurance dog  ajb007/lol  ) I've seen then sold
On the TV shopping channels, and they can give a " Faux"   or interpretation
Of a 3d effect on normal 2d films etc.
I'd say it's more a gimmick, but just in case someone has tried it.  ajb007/lol

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Ah ok! Im behind the times with all things cinema nowadays!!   Yeah imagine the result is not too pretty, even standard 3D releases that have been converted from 2D are a bit naff!!!

So whats the score on 4K?  I have seen the TVs are now being heavily advertised and available but does any media exist for this super duper resolution format?

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Not much, the bbc are showing a few matches from the world cup. Some
New cameras ( panasonic fz1000) shoots 4k video.  Cinemas show films
In basically 2k  ajb007/lol . I've only just got some hd channels, so it will be a while
Before I change  ajb007/biggrin

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

I have not seen anything in 4K yet - I've not heard or bothered reading reviews to see if its mind-blowing lol.

Wonder if we will hit the peak with 4K or it will continue - surely we must be close to the point where its impossible to see improvements.  I mean on a really great blu-ray transfer the picture is stunning, e.g. can see the pores on peoples faces etc (maybe thats not a good thing!!)  ajb007/crap

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

I did watch a tech show, where they did say that there is so much
Resolution in 4k, that the Hunan eye can't  " take it all in ", so they
Will continue to improve but we won't see the benefit.  ajb007/lol

While a HD 1080 Movie presently needs around 25 GB , a 4k movie is estimated to have 100-200 GB.

A screen grab from 4k, is an 8 megapixel image.  ajb007/biggrin  ( or so I've been told )

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

Just a reminder for anyone who wants to join in, in July we'll be watching
Dr No and FRWL, to review the films or comment on the special features etc
And  to give any views on the transfer to bluray, if you think it's good or any
Oddities you might have noticed.
As the films are so well known, I don't think spoilers will be an issue.  ajb007/lol

Re: Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

I hope this is the right thread to post this question to.  Why are there no subtitles for non English spoken lines in the older films? Currently binge-ing though the Blu Ray Box set and on 'The Man with the Golden Gun'

I might be wrong here but I think most of it is Bond saying
