is this coming to hi-def anytime soon? (prob not). now that I have hi-def, I don't care for standard DVDs anymore. i can't go back to watching movies on standard definition.

anyone else waiting for all the Bonds to go hi-def?

I would love the bond movies to go high def, and they will. But I have no intentions on paying 24-27 dollars a disc though, not even 20, at 20 dollars a movie it would be 420$ and that is a very reasonable price per movie. If you have a blu-ray player, chances are (if it is decent) it will upconvert your dvds and they look quite good. I'm re-watching my sopranos dvds on my blu-ray player and they look better than ever.

Before I got my PS3, I bought an up-converter dvd player that converts the 480 to 720p, and while thats not as impressive as 1080...it's really not that bad. I still enjoy movies from my old dvd collection and standard DVDs are soo cheap nowadays. Just throwing it out there, maybe you should consider a second dvd player that upconverts to play all the other stuff you don't care to see in 1080.

Hear, hear! I'm still working on converting all my VHS tapes over to DVD. *L* I can't IMAGINE starting all over again with a Blu-Ray conversion of my collection! I'll just Blu-Ray those I either haven't already replaced with DVD or my very favorite favorites, and enjoy the upconversion of my standard disks, otherwise. When you're talking about 2000+ movies, that's a huge commitment; one I'm not prepared to make. However, since the addition of the HD/Plasma TV and the Blu-Ray player will be happening this summer, I'm not buying anymore standard DVD's. I'm buying Blu-Ray UNLESS it's a lesser movie. [I won't even be LOOKING at Mortal Kombat 1, 2, or 3 on Blu-Ray, for example. *L*] But these? IF...and that's a huge little word, but IF I don't get this set, I'll definitely get it in Blu-Ray later. I've wanted this set since they introduced the 4-piece sets years ago, and just haven't done it. I'm torn, frankly, between waiting for this on Blu-Ray, and instant gratification of having it NOW. But I can't say that I'll do both. In fact, I CAN say that I won't do both. Whichever I go with, is what I'll have, and that will be that.

Does anyone know if they are going to release it on blu-ray?

I agree with putting multiple films on a single blu-ray disc, but I don't want to pay the high blu-ray prices for 5 old movies that already look great on DVD. Movies from the 50's, 60's, and 70's won't look that great on blu-ray because of the source medium that the movie was recorded on. I will buy the new Casino Royale and future Bond movies on Blu-ray, but none of the old movies because I don't think it's worth paying $20 for a blu-ray version of a single 1960's Bond movie. I agree on using Blu-ray for compressing the amount of discs, but I don't expect movie quality of the old films to get much better.

Six Bonds have been announced for Blu-ray.

It's true that not everything looks great on Blu-ray and the source material is a key factor in that, but I wouldn't dismiss older films without seeing them first. Some older films like The Searchers have turned out very nicely in high definition.

There are some DVD players, I have one. that plays, the opposite of what the usa uses for dvd standard, If that makes any sence? If he can find a DVD player that does the same then it will work, if not, then no it will not work. If you want more info on that kinda dvd player, jus give me a shout.

Actually, ASP, the source material of older films - in most cases 35mm film, which is still the standard today - is significantly better quality than blu-ray. Sometimes older movies don't look good because the the source material used for the transfer has been damaged, but in most cases any damage can easily be restored if the studio is willing to put in a little effort. I have seen early silent films that look better than new releases.

I don't believe they had hi-def in 1962.... Good luck getting any of the vintage bond movies in hi-def. Maybe the latest one from 2006, but that's probably the starting point.

Please know what you're talking about before you post. Ever heard of remastering? They didn't have digital technology when Zeppelin recorded Stairway to Heaven either, but somehow I have it on CD, with sound quality better than it ever sounded when it was originally released on vinyl.

Hi-def is on the disk. The original film, that the movie is on maybe 35mm or 65mm or 70mm and that is what the movies were on in 1962 also that is the same as what they are on today. You can be assured that high quality companies are not going to release any film from VHS tape like the cheaper ones that you find today. As TheBrizz states remastering of the old films are repairing the damage to the films that time has done to them.
