Re: James Bond Update

Yeah, fuck them if they don't release them singly at the same time.

Re: James Bond Update

Well, I bet that you could make more in selling the singles right when the complete is released than the complete will cost.

As long as they keep producing movies, there is no such thing as a COMPLETE collection. Unless it contains Skyfall, it's already out of date.

Re: James Bond Update

I'd virtually guerantee that they will release these as they always have. In 3 or 4 box sets that mix classic Connery with 2 or 3 stinkers. Followed up 3 years from now with individual releases.

Why don't we wait at least until Skyfall has been made before calling a release without it incomplete. It would be pretty tough, even for the best Blu-ray distributor, to include a movie that's still in the middle of principal photography.

Re: James Bond Update

All I can say is thank God Paramount backed away...I can't imagine anything worse than them releasing Bond on Blu-ray - which would probably either be barebones, or archived non-HD extras.

Re: James Bond Update

Since I have none of them on blu, I welcome a full set, which is what I'd want anyway. By definition, it will probably be a decent sized box, but hopefully not a misshapen one that won't fit on my shelf. That will force my hand on only buying individual titles.

Re: James Bond Update

The complete box set is kind of tempting but I've got quite a few on Blu-ray already (Dr. No, From Russia with Love, Goldfinger, Man with the Golden Gun, Casino Royale, and Quantum of Solace). Plus with Bond a complete set is probably never going to be complete since they keep making new ones and I assume will continue to for quite some time. Maybe if the price was right I'd consider it.

The Blu-ray releases have always had the small box sets along with them available individually at the same time though. Not sure where your 3 years from now thing is coming from, unless i'm misunderstanding you.

Re: James Bond Update

It's on blu-ray.com as well. Definitely happening.

http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=8017

The missing titles are why I never bought any of them on BD. Heck, I still haven't gone through everything on the ultimate DVD sets.

The $240 price tag, if true, is not as high as expected considering the number of films.

When someone has it for around $160-$170, then I go for it.

Re: James Bond Update

I wouldn't buy a complete set for $5 if that means I have to have Moonraker.

Re: James Bond Update

I never bought any of the current Blu-rays, and I acquired all of the remastered DVD editions when Circuit City had that ridiculous sale on all 4 volumes at something like $15 a piece. I'd buy this set if I can get it for under $150.

Re: James Bond Update

13 Bond films already released on Blu ray.
If I buy the other remaining 9 films.

9 x $15.99 = $143.91 (just a guesstimate for the price for each film. It could be more or less.)

If I order this for £89.99. (The Price could go down by October).
http://www.amazon.co.uk/James-Bond-C...6236612&sr=1-3

It cost $120.88 USD at Amazon UK for all 22 films.

Not a bad price at all. The only thing is if the discs are region free or not. The packaging for that set is pretty cool looking though.

Exactly. Many of us bought those three sets, and now that they have their act together, they completely dump that. Might be a good time to unload them on Amazon...

Re: James Bond Update

That's a great looking set.

I'm assuming that most of the extras will be imported from the DVDs. I wonder if they will be in HD or just imported as SD. But the story did say some new extras are being created for this set.

I think a lot of this bought the individual copies via awesome Amazon deals that made each one ~$5 or so, making it too awesome of a deal to pass up. And at that time, it looked like they would be consistent in releasing them rather then getting nothing for a year (because of MGM?).

So release is October 1st...at least in the UK. Now that's tempting. Oh, and the Amazon UK site says it does have an extra disc of new bonus content approximately 1 hour in length.

Might just pre-order to lock in the price. If anything there's plenty of time to cancel and if it's not region free I'll just cancel the order before release date.

Re: James Bond Update

Am I the only one who put in an order when Amazon had it for $700,000 as a placeholder price?

Gotta love that preorder price guarantee.
