Excerpt: This is arguably one of the most beautifully put together Blu-ray sets out there. The only other sets I can think of that match the level of quality are both the Alien Anthology and the Indiana Jones Complete Adventures. If you’re a fan of James Bond, then this is a must own. Each film has been painstakingly restored. With the exception of GoldenEye which has a little too much DNR for its own good. The set even comes with an extra slot for the newest release, Skyfall.
Excerpt: Bond 50 is definitely one of the best Blu-ray releases ever! I grew up watching these films over and over again. I had very high expectations for this set, and I was not disappointed. Every movie has crystal clear picture quality that is bright and vibrant. The audio is extremely good for the older films, but is absolutely explosive for the newer Bond films. I have never seen the Bond films look or sound this good.
Excerpt: All the films look and sound fantastic, including Goldeneye. If you have a great panel and player, Goldeneye will look great, no matter the DNR. Everyone here should just enjoy the experience of these films and forget about complaining about every small thing. In fact, it was kind of a relief to not see film grain for once.
Excerpt: This is the ultimate James Bond collection I ever owned. All the films are included in a 2 big beautiful booklet. I've been a big James Bond fan since 9 years old (I got chance to read the Bond novels recently and surprised how the books and movies differ). I'm so glad to have bought this (it wasn't cheap, but it was worth it). Now I can't review the audio and video because I don't have an HDTV nor a theater surround sound.
Excerpt: The James Bond Bond 50 Set on Blu-Ray is Awesome. All the films on Blu-Ray look very good on Blu-Ray except for Goldeneye because of the DNR issues but a minor complaint at that. Sound wise the films sound fantastic in DTS HD Master Audio 5.1. And the extra features are great in the set. Also it has a space saved for Skyfall when it comes out on Blu-Rsy. Overall the Bond 50 Blu-Ray set is a must own for any James Bond fan.
Excerpt: Since I have also got the first 11 bonds I was not happy when I heard I had to buy all 22 films to get the last 9.... (yes I know they now are going to release the 9 last separately). When u watch the movies u see that the best picture on the 4-5 first bond films as you get trough the 70, 80 you see there isn't done too much restoration on these films but the first 4-5 looks fantastic.
Excerpt: The transfers are just amazing, audio quality is superb. Im really suprised at the video quality, especially for the older films. Dr.No, From Russia With Love, Goldfinger and so on. They are so well done, and the DTS MA HD 5.1 is just as great. I was truly blown away upon opening this set, its very well put together and even has a space reserved for Skyfall on blu ray when it comes out, which was a smart thing to do.
Excerpt: I would be lying if i didnt say that I have some bias as James Bond is right up there with Star Trek as my favorite film franchise. There are only a few films that I dont love in this set and even then i still enjoy watching them. They all look better than ever, sound better than ever and there are plenty of extras to keep you occupied for a while. This is probably my favorite set I own so far!
Excerpt: This is a wonderful set, there are two "books", one of the earlier movies and one for the later movies. There is a spare slot for the upcoming Sky fall, which is a nice idea. I bought the blu-ray version at Best Buy for $149, however there is also a DVD set for $99, these are Best Buy sale prices (09/25/2012). The artwork is also well done and each page reflects the Bond actor for that period. To the quality of the movies.
Excerpt: It is a nice set, just much smaller than I thought it would be. The books are very solid and everything is very well made. The pictures in the book are semi-glossy, but not really. You do need to almost actually touch the info side of the Blu-ray disc to get it out of it's holder, I don't really care for that. Yes, Goldeneye is very heavily DNR'd in some scenes.
