5.0 out of 5 stars The first Bond, better than ever!, 8 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Dr. No [Blu-ray] [1962] (Blu-ray)
Dr. No was the start of the mega-franchise that would become James Bond. While the film is good, I actually prefer the book. But for this review I will focus mostly on this Blu-Ray edition.

First I actually own this one on DVD (single disc version) and I did a side-by-side comparison and what a huge improvement the Blu-Ray edition was. The picture was crispy and full of life, while the DVD looked rather muddy. It is also nice to have it presented in the original ratio of 1.66:1 rather than having it in 1.78:1. While picture did have a bit of grain, it was very natural and given for a film like this. The sound of the dialogue was lacking, but that was more because of the source material, rather than the restoration. The music however was booming out of the speakers and being very alive.

While the commentary is a bit lacking, being made from interviews it makes up for it in the documentaries. All of the ones included on set are of top-notch quality, with great interviews. I don't mind these not having been changed, as they remain as great today. As there is not much to add I don't feel that they would have needed more new material.

All in all I highly recommend stepping up with this collection!
