Product Description

Includes From Russia with Love, You Only Live Twice, Diamonds Are Forever, Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, The Living Daylights, and The World Is Not Enough.

Amazon.com

Sean Connery casts a long shadow over the James Bond legacy. He created the movie persona and starred in six of the first seven features, all but establishing the cool cold warrior as the world's most suave secret agent. The second Bond collection celebrates the Connery Bond with three of his classics, including From Russia with Love, 007's second and perhaps finest outing. A blond, buff Robert Shaw plays Bond's most ruthless nemesis, and Lotte Lenya and the great Pedro Armindáriz costar in this sleek, high-energy trip through the Iron Curtain. Connery travels to the Far East in You Only Live Twice, which introduces the international criminal conspiracy SPECTRE and its cat-loving mastermind, Blofeld (Donald Pleasence). After a brief retirement, Connery returned for Diamonds Are Forever, his final "official" appearance in the Bond series (15 years later he played Bond for a rival studio's Never Say Never Again). This more tongue-in-cheek adventure takes 007 to Las Vegas, where he battles Blofeld (this time played by Charles Gray) and his minions--namely, a pair of fey, sardonic henchmen and a team of bikini-clad karate killers.

Roger Moore took over the role and his fourth effort was Moonraker, a misguided sci-fi entry that takes Bond to space for a physically impressive but dramatically lackluster adventure with Richard Kiel's steel-dentured Jaws. After that brief digression, For Your Eyes Only returned Bond to globetrotting high adventure and teamed him with his most endearing ally (Topol as a gregarious smuggler). The torch was passed to Timothy Dalton in The Living Daylights, an attempt to clear away the camp elements of Moore's portrayal and return to a lean, hard-edged spy thriller for the post-cold war era. It lacks the larger-than-life characters and spectacle of previous Bond pictures, but Dalton was a tough, ruthless 007 and a worthy inheritor of the legacy, which was then passed on to Pierce Brosnan. In The World Is Not Enough, Bond takes on post-Soviet geopolitics, with Robert Carlyle as the villainous Renard and Sophie Marceau and Denise Richards as love objects.

Customer Reviews

This set of DVDs is the best collection I have in my library.
Steve
While Collection 1 has the best movies for any James Bond collection, Collection 2 has some of the most enjoyable films in the entire series.
The Commander
Due to the garbage on T.V. these days, looks like many people are looking for great movies and are turning to movies like this again.

Contrary to a previous post, The World is Not Enough will not be included in the 3rd gift set. Rather, this 2nd gift set will include an empty space for The World is Not Enough DVD, which will only be sold seperately.
An explanation: In sales numbers, studios can't count units sold in sets (in this case, The World is Not Enough) as sales. So, in order to keep the sales numbers for TWINE as high possible, it will only be available seperately, and not as part of any set.

James Bond once again returns to the DVD format in some of his best movies. This collection will finish out all of the introduction of the Bond actors. I was amazed at the first wave of James BondDVD's, and am anxious to see this wave of 007 on DVD. Personally, I think DVD enhances the movie for the modern era. If you ever watch the old Bond's on VHS, you can tell how old the movie is. With DVD, you will only be able to appreciate the beauty of the movie, as it was first presented in the theater.
Icluded in this collection #2 is my all time favorite "On Her Majesty's Secret Serivce." Followed by that is "Dr. No," "Moonraker," "The Man With The Golden Gun," and finally "The Spy Who Loved Me." Also what is included in the collection is most of Roger Moore's productions of Bond. I thought Roger Moore did an excellent job as Bond, as though he was skeptical in "Live and Let Die." I think that the reviewer below is right about "The World Is Not Enough." I think there will be a slot for "The World Is Not Enough" for you to place once you order it. It makes sense though. Why would MGM release all of the Bond movies on DVD at the time of "The World Is Not Enough" release and not a spot to put "TWINE?"
The DVD extras will be neat to watch and you are able to learn more about the movie. Along with the documentaries, you have the audio commentary tracks available on all of the Bond DVD's. If they are anything like the original giftset, which I think they will, James Bond fans like myself are in for a real treat.
This is a must for Bond fans who are looking to complete their 007 DVD collection. This is a special gift set for the Bond collector and enthusiast.

For those that purchased one of the box sets the first time they were issued, beware: MGM didn't re-release them. They conveniently shuffled the discs around so that if you bought Volume 1 of the old edition, buying volumes 2 and 3 of this edition will leave you missing some movies, and with duplicates of thunderball, live and let die and for your eyes only. Overall, the movies are great and have some good special features which are worth checking out. Just be warned that these new sets don't match up with the previously released ones.

For any James Bond fan. If this superb collection of James Bond DVDs weren't enough for you; there is good news coming your way. SONY and MGM are planning to re-release all twenty(20) of the James Bond Movies to DVD in (what they're calling) The James Bond Ultimate Edition DVD Collection. Straight official article from mi6.co.uk Here is the link:

[...]

These new Ultimate Edition DVDS are due in Q32006 coinciding with the release of Casino Royale (21st James Bond Film). These DVD releases are gonna be one of the top DVD projects of 2006!

Picture Quality? They are using Imagica Machines; which are ultra-sophisticated digital film-scanners. One frame every four seconds, which is how long it takes Imagica to scan across the frame 4,000 times. The Imagica they are using creates digital replicas of the frame consisting 4,000 horizontal lines of data. The process is called 4K scanning. It's gonna look sharper than ever; believe it.

Sound Quality? The Company Mi Casa has chosen the brand new Bryston SP 1.7 multichannel preamplifirer/processors for to use in the James Bond remastering project. Although you'll be able to switch back to the original traditional mono sound track if you desire.

Extra special features? Brand New Documentaries and new special bonus material; plus cast and crew intervies from the past 42 years. Including rare and previously seen footage from the productions. Also newly added, Roger Moore has just recorded his commentary tracks for his seven bond films.

I just can't wait. Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan (my favorite Bond) coming back to DVD in the best action spy adventures; the best collection yet.

So they're out next year in 2006. Probably October, with the release of Casino Royale who'll once again being directed by Martin Campbell (GoldenEye). Theatrical Release Date October 19th, 2006.

MGM has been doing a fantastic job with the Bond DVDs. The previous set has gotten fantastic reviews from every DVD review site and they were. Great video, great audio and the extras are always interesting. Documentaries, mutiple audio commentaries, ads, and trailers. As for the movies: Dr. No - The first, and very entertaining. Not to mention it takes place in one of my favorite places, Jamaica; On Her Majesty's Secret Service - One of the best Bond movies, Lazenby does a good job. Handles the emotional impact of the end that I think Connery couldn't; The Man With The Golden Gun - Good, definitely not great. And Goodnight is such an annoying ditz; The Spy Who Loved Me - Another great one, has a great henchman Jaws, Bond girl Anya (Agent XXX, yeah, I know...); Moonraker - Blatant TSLWM ripoff to capitilize on Star Wars but still good.
If you like Bond, don't miss out on this great bargain!
