Never Say Never Again is not included since it is not part of the "series," being produced independently. Likewise the David Niven spoof of Casino Royale. Also, there was a British TV version of Casino Royale that is not included.
Dr. No - Overall nice quality blu-ray. Colors have been driven more towards naturalistic than originally done
From Russia With Love - Overall nice quality blu-ray. Colors have been driven more towards naturalistic than originally done
Goldfinger - The gold is gone. Why screw with the color? The scene where she's painted gold has lost its golden touch and has been moved towards a more natural color. Yes, she's gold, but the original scene had a golden tint all around
Thunderball - Some color changes and slight damage, DNR, fake grain
You Only Live Twice - Original colors are lost and it's largely brown.
On Her Majesty's Secret Service - Contrast boosted way too much. Also, original colors are lost and it's largely brown. Audio issues on both the mono (Muffled in spots) and remix.
Diamonds Are forever - Changes in color and lack of detail. Original colors are lost--it's lost its "glimmer" and is largely brown now. Desaturated. Also, the scene where a cigarette is put out in Bond's chest isn't supposed to show the ashtray until he stands up, as seen in the original theatrical prints--the scene is supposed to be much darker
Live and Let Die - Okay blu-ray
The Man with the Golden Gun - Okay blu-ray, colors off
The Spy Who Loved Me - Excellent blu-ray
Moonraker - slightly squeezed and window-boxed main title sequence, okay otherwise
For Your Eyes Only - Fine blu-ray
Octopussy - Excessive edge enhancement
A View to a Kill - Image is misframed/cropped. Also, during an earthquake scene, the image/camera was supposed to shake.Read more ›
Dr. No - Good color; lossless audio or mono but no use of surround system
From Russia With Love - Overall good color; lossless audio or mono but no use of surround system
Goldfinger - Good color; lossless audio or mono but no use of surround system
Thunderball - Good color; lossless audio or mono but no use of surround system
You Only Live Twice -Good color; lossless audio or mono but almost no use of surround system except some panning which is rare
On Her Majesty's Secret Service - Good color; lossless audio or mono but no use of surround system except some panning across the front stage.
Diamonds Are forever - Good video transfer but very disappointed in the lack of discreet channel usage
Live and Let Die - Same as the above
The Man with the Golden Gun - Same as the above
The Spy Who Loved Me -excellent color transfer but little use of your surround
Moonraker - The same as The Spy Who Loved Me
The video transfers for almost all these early films are quite nice with no real crawling grain, no artifacting or stair stepping. On a couple of the Sean Connery films, there were, clear to be seen, dirt on the transfer in the form of what looked like lint. It only lasted for a couple of seconds however. Also, on one of the 'Extras' if you clicked on a extremely short shot of the 'Scuba Duck' it come up as the short of the 'rappeling gun' and visa versa. Clearly an error.Read more ›
There is no point in reviewing the films. You either like them or you don't. You know what they are. The films, together, have 120 hours of special features, so there is enough here to take a couple of weeks of essentially non-stop viewing (with sleep, of course). Most has been released before. There is a bonus disc of new content. As others have said, the non-franchise films are not included and there is no reason to have expected them.
I like the packaging. The discs are divided in two hard-back books, with stills from the films on the opposing pages. There are two discs per page, one disc per film, with a picture of a relevant "Bond Girl" next to the release date beside each disc. The two books are slip-cased. It is a classy looking and sturdy package.
I have no trouble removing them from the pages, and have yet to have to touch the surface. None of the ones I received had any fingerprints on them, so I have no idea what the other reviewer is speaking of.
