It's still a rumor but BestBuy could have steelbook.

The story in itself is not bad, however i'll agree, it's not the best written story, nor are the ancillary characters that interesting.

You're a lawyer, aren't you? I ask because how many ordinary non-lawyers casually drop "ancillary" into a conversation? (No worries. I catch myself doing it a lot too )

I'm going to get From Russia With Love. I wish Goldfinger had been in the mix. Then, it would of been my single, inital choice. I might get another 1 or 2 when they're on sale later. That's also contingent on how well done these discs turn out to be.

I'm not the biggest Bond fan. I like the first dozen or so more. After that, much of the charm was wearing off for me. I never bought many Bond films on DVD, so, I'm open to owning a few of the series.

In real life I am Dot Mongur champion of the International Pacman Federation. I don't play the game, I operate it.....no dot is safe from me....

I have already pre-ordered all of them except "Die Another Day" (thanks to the Amazon Buy 2get3 sale). I just cannot buy that movie on Blu-Ray right now. I have the DVD and have only watched it once after seeing this movie in the theater and I am not sure I want to watch it again anytime soon. The rest are must have's.

Until Casino Royale, The Living Daylights was my favorite Bond film.

Now what I will say about Dalton is that those films effectively "neutered" Bond as a rogue-ish sexual being, based on the times. Fortunately that was restored to the series, but that's no indication of Dalton's ability.

I much prefer Dalton to Roger Moore. Connery is my favorite and I was very pleased with Daniel Craig. He may be #2. I would rank Dalton as #3 and very close to Brosnan. Moore comes in last for me.

This is turning into a thread of lists. But for the record.

Brosnan
Connery
Craig
Moore
Dalton
Lazenby

DAD and TND both kind of sucked. But that wasn't Brosnans fault.

They couldn't pay me enough money to take any of the 'Remington Steele' Bond movies. FYEO was Moore's best outing as they really toughened him up for that movie. The scene where he kicks Locque's car off the cliff is pretty bad-ass for Roger.

Connery
Craig
Moore
Dalton
Lazenby (although OHMSS is one of the best films)

I fall in line with Art.
Best n most badAzz Bonds: Connery, Craig, Lazenby, Dalton, Brosnan...Moore

I have all on DVD already: I have CR on Blu and going forward will buy all in Blu for Connery, Craig and OHMSS...an absolute must have on bluray.

great pricing will motivate the others for purchase

Love for all things Hi-def...Losing count; 200 plus bluray, 500 plus dvd, 30 plus HDdvd and a rapidly growing 50 plus in the cloud.

Get real guys, obviously the greatest Bond of all is Woody Allen as Jimmy Bond. He saved the world from nuclear annilation by snacking. God save the Queen. He did his duty for Queen and country.

Right now, just my fave Bond, For Your Eyes Only. I haven't even opened the other Platinum DVD sets yet, so I'm no hurry for the others. Goldeneye will be an immediate buy when it comes, though
