Bond Blu-ray and 4k Film Club

edited November 2019 in The James Bond Films
Now that all the Bonds are on bluray, and on another thread a question was
asked about the quality of the transfer. I thought for anyone interested we could
Start a Film club, in the same vein as the Bond book of the month thread in the
Literary section ( started by a member with the body of an Adonis and the looks
of George Clooney ) .
Where starting with DR NO ( in July ) we can watch the film, look at the special features,
Commentary etc, and exchange views and opinions. Or if you have the DVDs we could
see what differences there are between the two formats, maybe even some memories
of the old VHS movies. :)

    I thought it might give us a reason to re-watch the films again
    ( not that we need a reason :)) ) and compare notes. {[]

    Ha - yeah good excuse to re-watch them!

    What's the plan - one a week / fortnight / month?

    I was thinking one a month, I sure no matter how busy you are you
    Could fit it in once a month. ( sounds a bit naughty :)) ) It would
    be interesting to read others opinions as we might watch the same film
    but we don't always see the same thing. Maybe some of us don't delve
    too deep into the special features, but we might find out about some
    really interesting stuff, that " We didn't even know existed " ;)

    It would be interesting to see how many people get involved in this. :D

    One a month sounds good. We will be around GE by the time Bond 24 comes out. Maybe speed it up next summer to get the whole series in :D
  • ThunderpussyThunderpussy Behind you !Posts: 63,697MI6 Agent
    :)) We could try one a fortnight, try and get them all in for
    24. :D

    OK guys, for anyone interested. Starting in July and beginning with
    Dr No & FRWL, every month we'll have a double bill of Bond films.
    On whatever format you have, but for those with bluray versions. It
    Would be interesting to get your views on how good you think the
    Quality of the transfer is, as well as thoughts on the special features,
    Commentaries as well as the film of course.
    This should mean we'll be done in a year and hopefully all fired up in
    Anticipation of the latest Bond. :))

    Sounds like a good idea, I bought the blu ray boxset just before Christmas and basically watched one a week, just finished two weeks ago.
    Will now have to convince the other half to watch them again, which might prove difficult, but it occupy her mind while she is knitting :))
    One of us smells like a tart's handkerchief.
  • ThunderpussyThunderpussy Behind you !Posts: 63,697MI6 Agent
    :)) I've had to watch them on my own for years :)) only this
    Time like a reviewer, I'll have a pad and pen beside me making
    Notes. :D

    Her review comments would be on the lines of:
    Why did he do that?
    Well that's stupid.
    Look at her dress that's awful.
    Oh god he's wearing flared trousers.
    That's impossible nobody can do that.

    Hasn't used my mother's " You've seen one, you've seen then all! " :D

    Might even give some the excuse to watch the odd Bond they've been avoiding :v
    as it's basically "Homework" :)). Also a brilliant excuse for wives/ partners etc

    I'm in the same boat as Peppermill, standard Dvds. Looking forward to this!
    This is Thunderbird 2, how can I be of assistance?
  • ThunderpussyThunderpussy Behind you !Posts: 63,697MI6 Agent
    I only used Bluray in the title as it's the latest version so should have all the latest
    extras ( If any different from the many dvd editions ) and if anyone has any opinions
    on the transfer to bluray, basically how good is it. :))

    I'm with Peppermill & Thunderbird2 in that I only own the Ultimate Edition DVDs. But it's a grand idea & I look forward to joining in the fun.
  • welshboy78welshboy78 Posts: 9,861MI6 Agent
    Yeah does not matter about which version we have I guess overall review of the movie, commentary, features etc.

    Seems to be a few people of late on the fence about purchasing the BR version therefore I guess BR owners will chip in with that!!

    Even VHS owners should chip in!!!!!! (or Betamax :)) )

    Could we make this a sticky? Or at least place it in the Bond Films part of the forum?
