Any information regarding individual releases? Particularly of the nine not-yet-released films?
Well -- regarding the bargain price: maybe we don't even need individual releases after all. Even if one threw away the previously released ones, that is still just 10 pounds for each new disc. Does not sound to bad, does it?
I doubt indivual releases will come out for quite a while after the Bond 50 set, as obviously MGM/Sony will want to get as much out of this as possible beforehand. I would guess sometime the following year.
I still own the UE DVDs and only have Daniel Craig's duo on Blu-ray, so this is perfect for me and at taht price how can you go wrong?
It's weird that they don't release all the films individually before the pack. Is better for us because we can get all the films cheaper, but normally the companies try to sell you the films individually before launching the pack.
As long as they're all in standard Blu-ray cases I'll be happy. The trouble with 'complete' box sets is that they can only be described as such until the next film comes out. That usually means a stand-alone BD with differing spine/cover art. I wouldn't want to get this set to find them all in slimcases or digipacks and then later on 'Skyfall' arrives in a standard case.
I totally agree if there in the blu-ray standard cases you can always buy later 007 films without deferring the image of your collection, whereas having a 50th anniversary box set with cardboard sleeves usually doesn't come with space to add any future films, and to be honest collections where they come in cardboard boxes i think are tacky. If you want the complete set you don't want to get a sub standard quality.
Just over £4 each on Blu-ray in this set. If you're expecting individual releases at anything close to that, you're not being realistic. So surely it makes sense just to buy it and watch the films you want to watch? Rather than buying ten or so of your favourites at ten pounds each and pay more? You can always loan the other films to friends/family or something useful?
And please, no "I don't want to be forced to buy films I don't want" type posts... I can't handle that debate again. I had it after the Alien Anthology release and felt like bashing my head repeatedly against the wall by the end of it. :)
Yes but a lot of people will have already bought the individual films that have already been released - I'm not spending £90 to re-purchase titles I already have (7), most of which only cost £6.99 in the sales anyway!
I'm confident that the remaining titles will eventually receive individual releases but not until Skyfall itself is release on blu-ray at the earliest. I can wait, ITV repeatedly show the Bond films anyway and in HD (although not in their correct ratios grrrr).
Ugh, this is annoying, I only want the Connery, Dalton and Brosnan films on Blu-Ray, I really don't want to waste money on a set that includes the awful Lazenby effort OHMSS, the campfest that was Roger Moore's era and I certainly don't want Casino Royale & Quantum of Solace...
I really hope they release all the films individually, so I can buy all the one I want, and not bother with the rest.
To have 22 films of Bond in Blu ray for about 4 pounds each is in itself great value. Notably, there will be future singular releases but these will certainly not retail for 4 pounds. Therefore, what you will receive here is exceptional value for money.
Agreed. Take, for example, the selection that D. Forbes would intent to buy. That is five movies starring Connery, two featuring Dalton, and four from the Brosnan years -- that is eleven discs. If and when they sell them individually, I doubt it will be for less then ten pounds, right? So that would be at least 110 pounds -- which is considerable more to pay than for the box.
Even if I disliked Lazenby, Moore, and Craig, I would still buy the complete set -- it will also look nice on the blu-ray shelf . . !
