Re: SPECTRE Bluray & DVD

Have to say the picture quality on the BluRay is amazing!  To me better than the movies and for some reason looks better than the itunes version...I am sure there is a technical reason for this (like being blown up on a 65 inch tv) but I saw details in the movie I had never seen before...great for research!

The Mantis was always The Bond Experience, but now he is The Bond Experience on AJB as well...

Amazon delivered mine today, watching it now, and I'm very pleased with the picture quality.  ajb007/smile

Re: SPECTRE Bluray & DVD

I watched mine 3X in as many days. I am keeping myself from watching it again until, er, next week.
Or later this week....

Re: SPECTRE Bluray & DVD

Got my BluRay (not steelbook). Did they change the subtitles for the release? I seem to remember at the cinema, when the subtitle 'To liars and.......' appeared I think the 'to' was spelt wrong? Or am I imagining this?

No, you are remembering correctly but was she saying two liars (as she was p*ssed seeing double) or was she giving a toast "to liars"?  ajb007/insane

Re: SPECTRE Bluray & DVD

Got mine today too , a must admit I agree with Mantis much better on blue ray and even better 3rd time round.  ajb007/bond
Still can't help being cheesed off with the extras if you can call them that.
What's happened to the good old fashioned interviews with the stars , featurette's and documentary's about the story (script to screen)
This was worse than Skyfall's.
most disappointing but seems the norm with all releases now.

That's what I was thinking. When she first says it, it sounds like she's seeing two Bonds, but when she adds the 'everywhere' bit, it sounds like she's making a toast. I don't know!

Heartily agree with you. The really annoying bit is a crew member I know well told me they had filmed pieces specifically to be on a dvd special features release  ajb007/frown
On a more positive note the Bluray clarity was amazing  ajb007/martini

Re: SPECTRE Bluray & DVD

Mine arrived yesterday and I have to say the Bluray picture is amazing quality.

So dissapointed thought with the general presentation (intro etc. ) The older DVDs had some great intros and effects for the menu screens and far more and better extras).  This version of the menu screen simply shows clips form the film to 30 seconds of the Bond theme - very disappointing and so obviously rushed to get this out.

I finally caved and bought a copy as it was cheap on Prime. I will watch it and try to think positive thoughts so that  I can join in drinking TP's koolade peace and love fest on another thread here on AJB. Reasons to be cheerful pt3.

OK I'm intrigued. Bluray and DVD? For different locations? Jeez Louise how Big IS your house? Or is one for the Beach House? If so if one is rich enough to have a Beach house and yet no Bluray? These and other questions need to be dealt with.

Re: SPECTRE Bluray & DVD

Now that most of us have had a chance to see it again at home, I have a question.
Was SPECTRE Craig's Thunderball? That's how I see it- does anyone have a better comparison film?

Re: SPECTRE Bluray & DVD

For scale and locations  it's the biggest of Craig's Bonds, with a clear change
to a lighter tone.  So perhaps it is Daniel's Thunderball, or Roger's TSWLM which
was bigger in scope than his  first two movies  ?

Re: SPECTRE Bluray & DVD

Given some of the seriousness in SP I'd still go with TB, TP.

Re: SPECTRE Bluray & DVD

Hi Folks

Does anybody else have a problem with the dark scenes on the DVD playing very dark with hardly any definition (Mr White scene for example)

We have Samsung DVD and TV etc and for some reason the dark scenes are just that - almost black - we had a similar problem with a Lincoln DVD so maybe its our set up but am interested if anybody else has this problem before buying a new player!!!

Thanks
