I've had about 3 BR's start to jitter & jump, but I just shut the player off & turn it back on & everything's fine. Reboot, as it were.

For what it's worth, I've never had any problems with BluRays either.

As a matter of interest guys any particular brand got a great rep
For blurays, as I'm using a Philips and the odd time a disc will
Stick, and funnily enough there are a few DVDs it won't play, so
I have to fire up the old DVD player.  ajb007/lol

Re: Bond Bluray Film Club

For your eyes Only:

Looks great on Bluray, The colour is not as Punchy as some others, but it's been nicely cleaned.
The sound is also terrific, I have read that it was " Worked on" to improve the quality for a
modern audience.  well worth getting, if not already part of your collection.

Octopussy :
Also looks fantastic and if anything looks more colourful, especially the parts In India. Once
again the clean up process has gives a great view, lots of detail. The sound is also very full
with rich tones. " DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track " apparently.  ajb007/biggrin

Decided to press on and finish the last of the Roger Moore Bonds.  ajb007/lol
everyone's favourite AVTAK .

A view to a Kill :
Fantastic transfer, really great picture quality, punchy colours with good detail etc a really nice
restoration of the film.  The audio is presented in the usual 5.1, helping to get the full effect
of the wonderful J Barry score.
Extras are the same on all the discs as the Ultimate dvd collection

Re: Bond Bluray Film Club

Dr. No Blu Ray last night.
Boy, the BR really lets the Caribbean colours shine! And I never noticed the blood on Bond's knuckles after beating up the phoney Government House driver before... The sand, crabs, wet shirts, it all looked great.
I also took more notice of the dialogue this time- so wonderfully written.
Still one of my very favourites.

Re: Bond Bluray Film Club

My ratings so far: DN & YOLT look frickin phenominal, TLD & LTK look pretty amazing, TND looks better enough that I feel I didn't waste my hard earned coin.
It seems BR services older titles best.

Yup, def where the format shines if the studios have worked hard on them

Depending on the transfer etc some very old films on Blu Ray are awesome.  I remember buying Zulu on Blu Ray - now that is surreal, the clarity is astonishing and if it wasn't for the haircuts, tomato sauce for blood etc you would think its new  ajb007/biggrin

Re: Bond Bluray Film Club

I'm always amazed at the quality of the image on bluray  ajb007/martini  as already
Said, the difference in the older films is stunning, they do look like modern
Films.  ajb007/cheers  The colours are fresh and punchy, even the textures in clothes
etc looks great. Also the sound quality has been worked on to improve the
Overall effect.
At the moment  I'm watching TLD & LTK for my bluray review and they do look great.
