Still far too dear for 40 year old films. They should be £3.99. iTunes are taking the pee at the moment with their prices.

Never Say Never again isn't a true bond film.

Also expensive considering you can get a 24 bluray bond set for £35 from Amazon, under £1.50 per film.
If you want them digital just rip them to mkv.
Cheapest ever on iTunes so heat added.

I had all of the bond movies as UV copies, So was gutted when Flixster shutdown. However, Google Play has now honoured all UV movies, so now how the full collection in HD again on their store now. Result!

Yes....we all know about NSNA. Thanks for stating the obvious.


Please stop comparing formats like this as its not a fair comparison. Why would i be interested in a lower quality blu ray disc if im talking about the price of 4K digital?!?

Sure but these are all 4K versions. The Daniel Craig movies just got updated to 4K HDR the only HD film here is never say never again which you bond set film from amazon doesn’t include. So your comparing apples to oranges .

Not really a fair comment is it? Were these films in 4K 40 years ago? Do you expect the studios to convert them into 4K for free and at personal cost to them?

Exactly.

Bond fans are quite happy to pay a small price to see these films at their best. Im happy the studio has done this and im glad some of my favourite films are films are finally in UHD!

ITunes 4K prices are actually pretty much unbeatable when compared to the physical 4K disc, not entirely sure what you think would be a reasonable price considering the cost of the discs.

....and before we get into a debate of disc vs digital. Any picture quality difference (pretty sure its negligible, if at all any) does not equal the difference in medium price. Quality/price and its a win for itunes.
I bought the iTunes HD bond set on sale for £50 a few years back. They were since upgraded to 4K last year for free and just recently the Daniel Craig films were updated for free to add HDR. Hopefully the others will in time as they are released in HDR. Heat from me great deal if you’re looking to add some of your fave bond films.

Because its a poor 4k scan? No HDR or Dolby Vision. You would be hard pushed to see a difference between the 1080p and 4k. The 1080p edition is made from the same 4k scan as the 4k version anyway. Fair comparison, read the reviews on various AV sites.

Not everyone knows it isn't a Bond film, look on the reviews on Amazon for the box set and you will see that
Wait. Is this £6.99 each! Might be 4k but that's crazy.

I never mentioned Spectre, just like your OP doesn't. I was talking about On Her Majesty's Secret Service and the other Non Bond film you listed. No need to stand up on your high horse.
The collections are much better value for money imho.
Most work out at £5 a film I believe.

Not 4K though. I just bought my Dad the Daniel Craig 4K Blu-ray boxset for 60 quid for Xmas. Crazy I know, but it's what he wanted.

All the Craig films are 4K Dolby Vision. No doubt the rest will be too when the other 4K Blu-ray boxsets are released.

BTW, OHMSS is just as genuine a Bond film as all the others. Just because Lazenby did one film, that doesn't make it "Non Bond".

Never said it wasnt a bond film, please read what I posted.

NSNA is a non bond film.


Doubt they will be re scanned again as they were 4k scans done when the first bluray boxset came out, just lacking the HDR and Dolby Vision which probably wasnt a thing when they completed the scan.
Good memories of NSNA, growing up as teenager... wasn't that one with Kim Basinger in her prime, alongside oldie Connery?
Must have become infatuated then...

"I was talking about On Her Majesty's Secret Service and the other Non Bond film you listed". So what WERE you saying about OHMSS?

Blade Runner was scanned at 4K for the original Blu-ray release in 2007, which is the same source used for the 4K Blu-ray. It has Dolby Vision.

Yet you mention the films and talk inclusively about them all. If you read the topic, i am speaking about all Bond films but i specifically mention OHMSS and NSNA as they don't appear in any itunes boxset and those wishing to have a complete collection may wish to buy them at this lower price.

My issue is actually your misinformation which you speak of as if it were truth. NSNA is currently £15.97 on blu ray on Amazon, so £6.99 is significantly better value. However there is no physical disc version of OHMSS in 4K in the UK (yet!) so again £6.99 is a great price...if not the only price. Therefore this nonsense of comparing the versions in relation to the films i specifically mentioned is a little weird, as there was nothing to compare it with.


One other thing, theres no such thing as a “true” Bond film. NSNA is a Bond film, its just not got the same production team behind it. Its a one off story outside of the traditional canon line of films, but its still Bond. Lets not get started on the original Casino Royale! However dont take my word for it, check out multiple internet sources like decider.com...

“In short, Never Say Never Again is a James Bond film. ... Never Say Never Again, essentially a Thunderball remake that officially sits outside of the James Bond canon. But of course, it IS a Bond film.29 Jan 2015“

If we follow your line of thought, then the Marvel Spider-man films arent true Spider-man films because they arent Sony films!

Anyway, Merry Christmas.

About it being a poor 4k scan, if you read the previous comments you would see.....(the forum doesnt do nested quotes anymore). The 4k scan was completed for the 1080p bluray release. The 1080 is adequate at best and the reviews state that 4k version is no better. The DD5.1 isn't great either.

It's a great film (one of my faves) but the scan is one of the poor ones.

I am a Bond fan and have owned the full collections on VHS and DVD, but I won't carry on throwing money away by buying the latest format at an inflated price. You'll end up paying forty quid a film at this rate. iTunes prices are also up, so it's not a bargain for me, especially when I've already bought them. Sorry.

Only time I mentioned them all was in regard to the cost per film if you got the box set making a £6.99 digital copy poor value for money.

If the 4k scans were actually decent on the pre Craig films it would be a different story, however they are mediocre.

I disagree, it's not a true bond film, and poorly made at that.....but then again I dont rate Thunderball either, maybe an age thing.

Merry Christmas

Even some of the new Craig films aren't the best examples, so there you go.

BTW, I added a comment about Blade Runner to my last post. Just because they were scanned some time ago, it doesn't exclude the possibility of Dolby Vision from the same scans.

Interesting. I think the Bonds were done in 2006.

I've only got into 4k in the last 18 months so I've not extensively researched it. I've just upgraded my projector to 4k HDR and have a LG OLED too so will be researching more when I actually get time to sit and watch some films over Christmas!

No issue with your opinion, just dont understand the above comment? Please could you elaborate?


Personally, anything James Bond, Star Wars, Star Trek, Indiana Jones 1-3, Terminator 1/2, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters 1/2, Goonies or Karate Kid 1 is always going to get my money when it comes to upgrades. Classic films that i will always want to see at their best. Have no issue paying around £5-7 per film to get them in 4K, genuinely dont understand disc collectors paying £25-30 per film though. Just nuts!

it is, it's just a remake of Thunderball with Sean Connery from a different studio after the studio hired a different Bond for their 'canon' films

but I agree it wasn't the best film
Watching OHMSS as we speak....whilst there is a little grain i have never seen it look so good! The level of detail in skin and fabric is incredible given that its a film from 1969.
For everyone moaning about the individual prices, just wait for boxset drops. I got the whole lot (except OHMSS) on iTunes for less than 55 quid last December - less than £2.50 a film. Not saying the boxsets are guaranteed to drop that low again, but they will drop.

Yeah me too, just wanted to highlight those 2 films that may be missing from your collection like they were from mine.

Indeed, I'm going to buy OHMSS to complete the collection. Currently got a 15% giftcard, so that and cashback means an extra 20% off.

Yeah I remember, was going to buy them. Got a good deal in the end though.
I seem to remember the toboggan section of OHMSS having some pretty horrendous backgrounds (maybe green screen), would be interested to know how they look in 4K!
Would be great to see iTunes do a full box set of all the films for a decent price in a potential January sale. I’d be in for that if it’s a good price!

Not showing up on CheapCharts yet but the Daniel Craig Collection is also reduced at £14.99. All 4 films in 4K, which works out to about £3.74 per film!
