I blind bought "The Taking of Pelham 123" today. This was so much better than the remake, with Denzel, that it isn't even funny. I'm very happy with my purchase of this movie. Walter Mathau is awesome!

Does the Casino Royale disc include the Barry Nelson TV play that was on the DVD?

Oh, good point - what are the extras on the BD? Be nice of the play was there unabridged, and in HD but I have my doubts...

Any chance of this getting a review Josh?

That would have been great, but unfortunately, no. The BD only comes with the audio commentary, the making-of doc and a trailer.

Damn, that was the one saving grace of the DVD. As a Bond completist, I'll still buy the disc, but that's a huge disappointment that I can't fully replace the DVD.

I never got around to buying the anniversary collector's edition, so this was a no-brainer. Still disappointed though they didn't port over all the same supplements.
