Bond Movies: Which Are You Buying?

post #1 of 236
Thread Starter 
It would be interesting to see exactly which Bond movies Blu-ray fans are buying on this first round of releases.
post #2 of 236
All the Connery ones and Live and Let Die.
post #3 of 236
All of them.

It gonna depend on the price.

I already bought the Bond collection twice (VHS and DVD)

so I dont fell any hurry (I need money for food aswell) to buy them this time around,
but on the other hand, I said the same with the DVD. I just bought one for the fun of it, and one more, and another one etc etc.

Sell them for 15$ And the collecting will start.

All of them. I work on the FOX lot in Century City. FOX distributes MGM titles in their studio store for 1/3 retail. Quite a deal!

The only Bonds I will double-dip are the Connery titles. I will also buy the new Casino Royale, because I don't yet own a copy.

/personal opinion/ As someone who was reading the Fleming novels before the first movie was made, I have never been able to accept Roger Moore as Bond. Dalton was better, but the movies were bad; Brosnan was OK, but the movies were just idiotic.

I really like Craig as Bond and hope the franchise lives up to the promise shown in the CR reboot.

Well, originally I was only planning on getting the three Connery titles and Live and Let Die. But, then I saw the Bond 6-pack at Amazon for $112. $16 more for two more movies? I might have to go ahead and get that, instead...

Ditto, although not all Bond films are created equal. I'm a completist

I preordered all Connery titles. I'll rent the others because I've never seen them.

Ditto. At their current projected price...none of them.

Also depends on the transfer. These are old films...I'm not sure how big of an improvement we can expect.

The early films like Dr. No are amazing. The middle films at least what I have seen on the HD movie channel aren't as good. There is a big honkin thread around here that helps to explain why. There are some really good screen caps floating around as well.

Couldn't have said it better.

I'd have to have a Walther PPK to my head to make me buy Die Another Day again ... but in this first round, I'm in for all the Connery's - and For Your Eyes Only. As they're released, I plan on picking up all of the Connery ones on BR, maybe the Daltons, and can NOT wait to get On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

As for the rest - I have the entire UE Collection on DVD, so I can live with those.

All of them, once the reviews are out and its been confirmed that their grain structure hasn't been smudged out.
post #15 of 236
iam going for die another day
i wish they would release all pierce bosnan bond films
post #16 of 236
I've bought the complete set 3 times already. (VHS and the 2 DVD sets-- luckily I didn't pay full MSRP at launch for any of them)

I'll be waiting for a very good deal before jumping in this time (I can't believe how fast the most recent set dropped in price).

That said, I will eventually own all of them on BR... making the 4th time I've bought all of these movies.

I'll probably at least rent a couple of the new releases, though, just to see what the fuss is about.

oops, I agree and didn't even notice Cry Another Day was one of them, no way I buy that POS

remember about that PPK, Bond's is .32ACP not .380ACP as most people think

Dr. No of course ....along with the other Sean Connery Bonds...
post #19 of 236
Just the Connery films for me.
post #20 of 236
Dr No, From Russia With Love,Thunderball, Goldfinger and On Her Majesty's Secret Service are complete no brainer buys for me. So, those in the first group I will get ASAP.

I'm getting all of them as they come along. While I find some entries to be vastly superior to others (the Connery and Dalton films are my favorites), I find merit in every Bond film.

I agree with that 100%, but I just can't include DAD in that, it is too far gone for me

I don't have any of the boxes cause I didn't want all the movies. Something tells me now I'll end up getting most of them anyway. This BD thingy is killing my wallet!

+1, except for OHMSS. Art, do you REALLY like George Lazenby?

So, I take it that anything with the word "Die" in the title is not very good.

Coincidentally, I don't think many people will be fond of the theme song for Quantum of Solace, which happens to be titled "Another Way to Die."

Yeah, it's pretty bad - almost as bad as Madonna's contribution.
