Re: James Bond Update

Slightly off-topic, but if anyone missed the BAFTAs, here's a look at the great opening number:

Re: James Bond Update

From comingsoon.net. New material for the new set.

Spoiler:
DISC TWENTY THREE – Bonus Material

o NEW – The World of Bond – the 007 films have a look, style and attitude that is signature Bond. From the cars, to the women, to the villains and even the music, Bond films stand apart. The World of Bond takes the viewer through the best of five decades worth of classic James Bond in one thrilling montage. The World of Bond showcases the fascinating and entertaining interplay among unforgettable moments of danger, seduction, adventure and a dash of that distinguished humor that fans have cherished from the beginning up until now. To add to the experience, The World of Bond featurette will also offer a Pop-Up Trivia option to challenge even the sharpest of fans with little known facts and interesting trivia from the Bond Universe.

o NEW – Being Bond – there’s only one James Bond – but he’s proven too much for only one actor to play the role. In the franchise’s 50-year run, six distinguished actors have taken on the part and secured a spot in cinematic history. Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig each reflect on the impact and importance of taking on such a famous role. With this piece, gain insight into what each actor brought to the character and discover how they shaped the world’s most timeless secret agent.

Re: James Bond Update

Wow, so the special features that were created for a special edition of QOS are NOT a part of this set? WTF? Mark Forester confirmed he had recorded a commentary track for the film and that a more loaded disc would be out at some point.

Some more points.
1. I wonder if the discs debuting on Blu are going to have the "Inside" documentaries recreated in HD like the other films have.

2. I really wish they would have done new "Inside" documentaries for the Brosnan era. Enough time has passed to do a proper retrospective look back with new interviews. Hopefully a narration by Macnee before it's too late (he's getting up there at 90).

3. EON spend some money and get Connery, Lazenby, Dalton and Brosnan do commentary on their films. Seriously? If they are up for it, Let them have their say. Every year that passes is a lost opportunity. How much longer do you expect some of these guys to keep on living? Brosnan is the youngest and will be 60 next year, Connery is 81!

Once again, fuck them for screwing over those of us who bought the previous sets without continuing them.

Re: James Bond Update

Hell, I'd settle for individual documentaries on each of the Bonds to talk about their time spent on these films. Of course, Lazenby would probably be just a featurrette.

Re: James Bond Update

Looks like I'll be keeping my 2 disc Casino Royale

I'm sure Goldeneye will remain horribly misframed like the 2 disc DVD.

Likewise on Casino Royale.

IIRC, though, the Blu-Rays that were released did fix issues that were on the 2-Disc DVDs, so it wouldn't surprise me if they did fix the misframing...

This just doesn't make any sense to include the lackluster special features for the final two films and then have a brand new disc of bonus content. Wasn't the purpose of this box to be the definitive collection?

Even if they'd done it right, it would only be "definitive" until Skyfall comes out, anyway.

Unless the set has a spot already planned so we can fit Skyfall in. But even then, the next Bond will end the "definitive" moniker.

Re: James Bond Update

Yeah, it's really odd that they wouldn't include everything from that Casino Royale special edition. I sold mine already, but I can live without those extras. Maybe much of the footage has been incorporated in the new bonus materials? Who knows.

Yes, that's the single-disc first release. I guess we can assume all the transfers are the same too (minus the new-to-Blu-ray ones, of course).

I guess I will just wait for the Bond At 51 box set in 2013 that includes all of the extras for Casino Royale.

Same here. I already sold my copy as well. I tend to always say I want the extras but then never actually get around to watching them (on almost every movie I own). I'll live.

Re: James Bond Update

I'm holding onto my Casino Royale 2-disc. Not just for the extras, but the sound mix as well. I always thought the PCM audio from the original 1-disc release was a little muddled with the dialogue. The TrueHD track that was mixed on the 2-disc set always sounded better to me, particularly the dialogue. Definitely was more clear and full. I'm guessing they'll be provided a DTS mix for this new release.

Re: James Bond Update

Anyone with the current versions know if anything is missing from the other movies in terms of extras (aside from Casnio Royale) of course. There was only the single-disc version of Quantum, right? So that one's the same.

Depends if the specs are complete or not. The box set lists these as the only extras:

· DISC TWENTY TWO—Quantum of Solace (Over 1 hour of content)

o 2 Featurettes

o "Another Way to Die" Music Video

o Original Theatrical Trailers

But this is what's on the current 1 disc.

The newer 2 disc dvd and subsequent blu-ray of Die Another Day is missing the 80 minute "Inside Die Another Day" doc, multi-angle features and theatrical trailers from the first 2 disc dvd.
