5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Ultimate!, 4 Sep 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: James Bond - Limited Edition Attache Case Ultimate Editions Box Set (40 Discs) [DVD] (DVD)
I first learned about MGM's project to restore the Bond movies to their original state, two and a half years ago, in a piece written for the New York Times.

The Californian company Lowry Digital have executed the work on behalf of MGM by scanning the original camera negatives of all 20 films at a rate of four seconds per individual frame, and at a resolution which is four times the rate of all previous standard DVD resolution scanning.

These ` 4K Masters' are the foundation for these Ultimate Editions.

The results are truly remarkable - the first three films in the series benefit the most, displaying the most dramatic results.

Dr No, From Russia With Love and Goldfinger look beautiful -as if they were shot yesterday, and simply set in the 1960s.

The most recent films of course are no different in appearance from the previous Special Editions on DVD, since the source material was brand new at the time the transfers were made onto disc.

A word about the attaché case: I was wary about this when I first came across an image of it on the internet a couple months back, fearing it would turn out to be a cheap Taiwanese gimmick with mediocre [at best ] craftsmanship. How wrong can you get! This case is very very nice indeed, solidly built and beautifully-finished, sturdy enough to carry regular traveling gear [ really! ] and of some physical weight, a real surprise.

Three words only to conclude my remarks:

Worth - every - penny.
