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

You need to adjust brightness & contrast IMO.

Dalton & Connery rule. Brozz was cool. Craig is too.

Yeah we have tried all of that and can't get around it - other DVD's are absolutely fine as well - maybe that the more recently manufactured have an issue - will keep investigating

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?

Excellent comparison. Both middling entrys, better early sections. Unlikely to be the firm favourite of many, but has some decent scenes and a strong performance as Bond. Weak payoff, some really overlong and drawn out scenes, and far too long, uninspiring villain (Largo always seemed like a S.p.e.c.t.r.e OP's Director rather than a major player)

If co paring Craig to Connery in terms of overall opinions, I'd say:

CR is Craig's FRWL
QoS is Craig's DAF
SF is Craig's GF
SP is Craig's YOLT

Re: SPECTRE Bluray & DVD

Tried to watch it again yesterday, got halfway through the titles thought "f*** this" and put FRWL on instead ,still IMHO the worst of the movies.

To be fair to old SniperUK,  he wasn't saying that. I was just pulling his leg about how he'd
written it.  ajb007/smile  just as you are pulling his leg too. ajb007/wink  no one can doubt the  greatness of FRWL.  ajb007/heart
it is good .......... Not Spectre good obviously, but close !  ajb007/biggrin

Re: SPECTRE Bluray & DVD

At last the Blu-Ray is out in South Africa. Got my copy yesterday, and watched all the special features last night (which didn't take very long at all.) Certainly the most disappointing Bond release ever in terms of supplemental material, although I thought the piece about the Mexico scene was very good. If only there could have been similar material for the rest of the film then I would have been fairly satisfied. And a director's commentary too!

Now I just need to find an appropriate evening to rewatch the film...all my nights are fully booked already this week!

I was thinking the same thing honestly. I would have loved to have seen more behind the scenes footage. Also, I'm disappointed in the level of releases lately. I remember when CR came out it came in a special edition set with some poker chips and two decks of cards. What happened to those cool releases with collectibles? Even Star Wars, which came out yesterday, didn't include any special items.

Re: SPECTRE Bluray & DVD

You can read between the lines on the Spectre home video release that they weren't terribly pleased with the end product. From the sort of muted press tour (compared to the celebration of Skyfall) to the lack of bonus features and commentaries (again, compare the TWO separate commentaries included with Skyfall), it's kind of clear that Eon weren't in a very celebratory mood about Spectre. (See also: the Quantum Of Solace DVD)

Maybe they just thought it was not an anniversary movie so there was no need for any particular bells and whistles?

Re: SPECTRE Bluray & DVD

Apart from commentary did Skyfall have any extras - I only remember mega short lazy web clips!?

Re: SPECTRE Bluray & DVD

Skyfall had a fairly comprehensive making-of documentary. About an hour in length if I remember correctly.

Re: SPECTRE Bluray & DVD

Watching Spectre again tonight, I have to say how much I really  enjoyed the Train fight.
Brilliant bit of fight choreography, lots of little bits of business. Also the fact that there is
no music, just the sounds of punches. When the music does kick in in the cargo carriage
to my unenlightened  ear, sounds very Hitchcock.

Re: SPECTRE Bluray & DVD

SPECTRE is world class Bond. Dan goes out on a definite high note.

Dalton & Connery rule. Brozz was cool. Craig is too.

Very disappointed with the current SP features.... A few years ago two-discs were released, jam-packed with extra material. And now we get a few features, not even trailers? Come on...
