    @Silhouette Man was saying elsewhere the Being James Bond doc is only available on the 4k version of No Time to Die

    Yes, that's correct. As I said in that post I feel it was rather mean spirited of Eon not to include that documentary in all the home releases. However, I'm guessing it's a rather cynical ploy on their part to encourage us to buy the 4K disc as well. Sadly many Bond fans (myself included) don't yet have 4K TVs or 4K players to watch it on.

    Anybody know anything about this new Casino Royale release? (10th Jan in UK)

    I was going to wait for the (inevitable) Craig 4K Boxset before upgrading from the original Blu-Rays, but I find myself tempted with this. The Amazon link seems to give the most info on the release.

    Yes. Considerably.

    Prob just the same old disc in fancy packaging.

    Both the 4K UHD Blu ray and regular Blu Ray of NTTD are outstanding. The 4K UHD version has made many top 5 lists relative to picture quality and sound. My only disappointment with the 4K disc is that the IMAX scenes were not presented in the taller 1.90 to 1 IMAX ratio.

    Very much looking forward to the classic Bonds being issued on 4K UHD disc. The 4K UHD versions presently available on streaming platforms look good, but are really only about as good as a regular 1080p Blu Ray disc due to the bandwidth limitations of streaming platforms. It's going to take a lot to improve upon the 1080p Blu Rays of DN, FRWL, and GF as they are some of the best Blu Rays ever released but since all those classic Bonds were shot on 35mm film, new disc releases created from 4K masters with HDR, etc have the potential to set new standards. TB, which is an ok Blu Ray remaster but inferior to the first three, could really benefit from the new 4K / HDR remaster on disc.

    For those looking to upgrade to 4K UHD discs, I would highly recommend the 4K UHD Disc remaster of the original Predator. It's a huge improvement over the regular Blu Ray release and can be had for under $20.00. The Kino 4K release of The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly is also highly recommended as the color timing has been finally corrected and it's a great looking 4K disc in general (far superior to any previous physical media releases of that film).

    Some label called final cut entertainment have recently reissued CR 67, have any of you purchased it? Does it have any new features?

    I’ve only began to collect classic movies, either in 4K or a steelbook version, because they have cool art on them. I hope they come out with a 4K steelbook version of the Criag Era, and I wonder if they’ve done that for any other Bond actor era.

    4K steelbooks of the Craig films are already out there.

    However I expect a box set of the entire series in 4K will be unleashed this year for the 60th

    Any whispers of a box set 4K release for the 60th Anniversary?

    I wish they had done this instead of the useless stuff they did release.
