then why would they go to the trouble of remastering it and reissueing it on dvd. you obviously are new to the whole concept of studios doing multiple releases of movies. in particular using a double dip as a way to boost intrest in the upcomming theatrical release of a sequal.

and just cause you wont rebuy casino royale again doesnt mean many others wouldnt. but i guess every consumer on the planet follows your lead when decideing what they want to purchase.

There's three or four bond films I'd love to get. Then again, once you see your faves... it makes you wanna see other ones. Then you gotta own the whole series. Sigh. They are like Lays chips or Oreos. You can't have just some of them.

No im quite well in the concept of studios re-releasing because of new masters. But you see Casino Royale already has a pristine master, so obviously i think it is you who doesn't realize that it would be stupid to re-release this movie UNLESS IT HAS SOMETHING SIGNIFICANT TO OFFER. So perhaps you might want to actually take a look at how great Casino Royale looks and sounds on DVD/Blu-ray before you go and attempt to insult my intelligence again thank you very much.

I made a somewhat curious discovery in the credits for the mastering on the James Bond films. Previously I had believed the first 9 films had been scanned at 4K by Lowry / DTS Imaging. However, I have now found that the first 8 films have a 4K Film Scanning credit. The Man With The Golden Gun and The Spy Who Loved Me do not have 4K Film Scanning credits, rather they are given Video Masters credits. Moonraker however does have a 4K Film Scanning credit. I know believe that the first 8 were scanned at 4K (Dr. No - Live and Let Die) as well as Moonraker. However, The Man With The Golden Gun and The Spy Who Loved Me appear not to have been scanned at 4K.

The remaining films after Moonraker all list a Video Masters credit.

The Lowry credits appear at the conclusion of each films End Credits.

Can anyone confirm what I have found?

Am I correct that the films listed with 4K Scanning credits were done at 4K while the other films have only Video Masters credits meaning they were not scanned at 4K?

Could this be a possible explanation of the haloing and EE on The Spy Who Loved Me? Or is it another reason, possibly the DVD authoring?

Lastly, would the films not scanned at 4K need to be redone for a Blu Ray release?

It would have been nice to have ALL films receive the same treatment.

Overall I am very very happy with the UE DVD's. I'm really looking forward to Blu Ray. I am now wondering though if a Blu Ray release is another year away? 2009 maybe?

Thanks for posting!

I noticed today that there are several Bond films available from Itunes that are in HD and not currently available on blu ray:

You Only Live Twice, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, The Spy Who Loved Me, The Living Daylights and Goldeneye.

There are some others as well. Some in HD, SD and or both.

A few are not available in any format.

Has anyone seen any of these displayed on a tv? I'm a bit interested in possibly trying to download one and then displaying it on a tv.

Connect through Apple TV maybe?

News going around about a Quantum of Solace Definitive Edition on DVD in July. No mention of blu ray in the article however... Hopefully it's just an oversight...

Well now that Spyglass has bought MGM hopefully the Blu-Rays can get moving. I just hope they don't change the packaging style and keep it consistent with the ones that have already come out.

Haven't they only bought a 5% stake, thats hardly buying them and MGM continues to be in a lot of financial trouble but then check their history and you will find thats been the case for the last fifty years, if Ben Hur had flopped the studio would have been in trouble back then too.

I sure would like you to point to an official release that Spyglass, a tiny company, has bought out MGM's 5 Billion debt. At best there will be a limited merger.
