good price that mate, back up to £73.99 @ HMV
#2
how can they call it the complete collection when it's missing Quantum of Solace?
#3
Ordered thim from HMV last week, quality box set with ultimate 2 disc editions, released Oct 08. QoS was only released in March, so yes the box will never be 'complete'. At the time of release is was complete though.

Voted Hot!

They update the collection every time a new Bond has come out mate. Thats why this one is cheaper. When they bring out the one with Quantum in it will be a more expensive than this thats for sure.
Personally I'm thinking about gradually re-building my collection now on Blue Ray ;-)

This should be a lot cheaper if they DID include QOS. Because once I have taken that atrocity of a film out and smashed it up, there would be a space left, which would need to be filled with something far more interesting like Police Adademy 3.

QoS is seriously one of the worst films I have seen for a long time. The editing is so insanely bad. Compared to the lamest episode of 24, QoS is absolutely dire.

You've got a point there.

I've got all the Bond films on video and I've recently been upgrading them to Dvd. However, I may as well start buying them on Blu-Ray.

Although, they're triple the price.

Never Say Never Again isn't an 'official' bond film (hence no bond theme)
Neither was the original Casino Royale

both made it into the box sets a few years back, but are now out of them again.

and I think I've said my piece on the gadget free plot thin James Blonde duo of movies.

and as some are shot on 1960's media, can they really be made that much clearer?!

be careful you're not just getting a digitally mastered for DVD cut transfered to a dearer disc!.

On the special features there is a documentary on how these where restored(what do mean 1960s media?) 35mm movie film is higher resolution than any HD device can display, and the quality of colour from technicolour stock is second to non, it is in fact 3 black and white films running together through filters so is over twice the resolution of some modern films, they did a frame by frame digital restoration using the triple film stock out of technicolour cameras used for the original shots before any transfers to 35mm where made, these DVDs are so bright and clear you will not believe it.

Just to clarify?? These appear to be the special editions NOT the ultimate editions. If that is the case then they are not the remastered (ultimate) versions.

What makes you think that? The box is enbazened with the words "ultimate"

Hi Wibblefish,
These are the ultimate versions and not the special editions. This was also clarified in the hmv deal (now expired) link below:

If you take a look at the image on amazon you will see that the image has the ultimate dvd collector's set.

hmm 'restored' so they'd degraded, or wheren't up to the DVD standard.

this comment was mainly aimed at those buying Blu Ray. if the cut is only remastered to DVD quality, then there's little point in paying the extra for Blu Ray as it will be the DVD styandard on the vastly dearer disc. - There have been plenty of DVD releases other the years that have been taken from a worn out cinema real (I had a copy of 'Driller Killer' that was appaling, early VHS prints where clearer!) be wary of studios pulling the same trick.
Equally, if you're correct about the standard of 35mm film, then again, no point in blu ray as there's clearly further advances to come!.
