    Für alle Bond-Fans. Ich empfehle euch die Stern-Sonderausgabe: "50 Jahre James Bond".
    Der Stern ist immer so Anti-Dalton und Anti-Lazenby eingestellt. Das wird in diesem Heft bestimmt auch nicht anders sein.
    Von daher kann ich gerne darauf verzichten.

    AW: James Bond

    Anlässlich des 50. von Dr. No ist Sky UK übrigens hingegangen und hat den Sender "Sky Showcase HD" in "Sky 007 HD" umbenannt und sendet die nächsten Tage ausschließlich Bond-Filme (inkl. "Casino Royale" von 1967 und "Sag niemals nie", die in der Box fehlen). Damit ist meine Bond HD-Sammlung dann endgültig komplett.
    Schade, dass die Kollegen vom deutschen Sky nicht auch so eine Aktion gestartet haben. Sky Italia hat wohl aktuell auch so eine Aktion wie die Briten - nur die Deutschen haben mal wieder das Nachsehen.

    Lohnt meiner Meinung nach nicht. Das Heft ist nicht so dick im Umfang, etliche großvormatige Fotos - wenig Text.

    Wäre interessant ob Goldeneye auch dabei ist und wie die Qualiät der Ausstrahlung ist. Hab auf meiner Platte eine HDTV-Version in 1080p, aber leider mit dem falschen Bildausschnitt wie auf den DVDs. Wenn jemand die Timecodes der Screens vom Schweizer hat, dann könnte ich die Gegenstücke reinstellen. Eines kann man aber mit Sicherheit sagen: Die Ausstrahlung hat nicht das DNR von der Bluray.

    Wenn jemand SKY UK empfangen kann. Tue 9 Oct at 5:40 PM läuft Goldeneye

    Mal ne Frage: Bin ich der Einzige, der seine alte Sony-BD von CASINO ROYALE behält? Ich meine, deutscher PCM 5.1-Ton ist ja schon etwas anderes als der DTS-Half-Core 5.1-Ton, der in der Box zu diesem Film vorliegt, nicht wahr?!

    Seinen Goldeneye Thread habe ich gelesen und erwartunsgemäss (und zurecht) kommt die Scheibe nicht gut weg.

    Bei Diamantenfieber ist es interessant, dass Harris mit dem genau gleichen Probleme hat wie ich bei dem Transfer und sich scheinbar auch Experten nicht immer einig sein können weil Torsten es ja anders sieht.

    Octopussy hingegen ist absoluter 08/15 standard HD und kommt etwas brutal weg bei Harris.
    Auf Grossbild projeziert sieht er halt einfach leider etwas künstlich aus.

    Ab Octopussy kriegt man halt leider nur noch absolute Standard Leistungen geboten in Sachen Bild die je nach Film etwas schwanken.
    Die meisten davon sind allerdings immer noch schöner anzusehen als die UE DVDs von denselben Filmen.

    "Octopussy" habe ich ja schon am Beamer gesehen und fand in schon etwas grenzwertig "digital". Da ich den Film nicht wahnsinnig mag, hatte ich aber wahrscheinlich zu viel Zeit zum Nörgeln.

    Bei "Diamonds" tendiere ich zu Hrn. Kaiser's Meinung. Obwohl ja nicht ein Top Bond habe ich den wahrscheinlich am öftesten gesehen (möglicherweise, weil ich bei der Uraufführung schon 3x d'rinnen war - das "prägt" ). Der Film hatte sicher einen etwas härteren "Look" - genauso wie OHMSS - als frühere Filme. Den Rotstich bei YOLT hätte ich lieber nicht, aber ich denke eine schlecht justierte Lampe im Kino richtet da mehr Schaden an... "Spy" - da sag' ich nur Gott sei Dank!
    Insgesamt schon alles OK für's Geld, aber da wir nun so lange auf die restlichen Scheiben gewartet haben, hätte ich mir etwas "Definitives" gewünscht, zumal ich mir manche Filme nun schon zum 7. (gulp) mal gekauft habe... Dafür müssen meine Schuhe so lange halten bis sie mir von den Füssen fallen

    AW: James Bond

    Also diese Reviews auf HTF klingen doch sehr gut !

    Video Quality

    You Only Live Twice – 4/5

    The film is presented in its theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1, in 1080p resolution using the AVC codec. Though the digital clean-up has performed miracles in terms of clarity, there’s a brownish tone to the timing that seems to age the picture a bit. Flesh tones are also on the brown side, and color, while solid, doesn’t snap with vivacity. The blacks, however, are excellent with the dark of space often blending right into the letterbox bars and aiding greatly in shadow detail. The main titles have not been windowboxed here. The film has been divided into 32 chapters.

    On Her Majesty’s Secret Service – 4.5/5
    The 2.35:1 Panavision aspect ratio is faithfully delivered in the 1080p presentation using the AVC codec. Unlike You Only Live Twice, the color here sparkles and has a vibrancy missing from the previous transfer. While flesh tones sometimes err on the pink side (especially in the film’s first half), color consistency is admirable. Sharpness is superb, too, allowing us to see facial anomalies and the texture of fabrics easily. Black levels are very good as is shadow detail. The main title credits are windowboxed with this transfer. The film has been divided into 32 chapters.


    Diamonds Are Forever – 3.5/5
    The Panavision 2.35:1 transfer (1080p, AVC codec) is irritatingly inconsistent throughout. Some scenes look bold and beautiful with superb sharpness, excellent contrast, and brilliant color saturation. But there are other scenes that look brown and much less distinct. Flesh tones run the gamut from overly brown to overly rosy and often completely unrealistic. Worse, black levels are milky. The main titles are not windowboxed. The film has been divided into 32 chapters.
    The Spy Who Loved Me – 4.5/5
    The 2.35:1 transfer (1080p, AVC codec) looks wonderful pretty much all the way through with only an occasional shot that seems to come from somewhere else with less detail and clarity. The transfer is very clean and bright making rear projection work more obvious here than on other films in the series. Color is rich and flesh tones are mostly realistic and consistently presented. Blacks aren’t as deep as they might have been, but contrast has been excellently realized. The opening credit sequence is windowboxed. The film has been divided into 32 chapters.

    Octopussy – 4.5/5

    The 2.35:1 transfer (1080p, AVC codec) is an almost reference transfer with only the black levels preventing it from reaching a perfect video score (and the blacks aren’t bad). Color saturation is marvelous, and flesh tones remain believable and consistently presented. The image is very sharp throughout with excellent contrast. The opening credits are not windowboxed. The movie has been divided into 36 chapters.

    A View to a Kill – 4.5/5

    The 2.35:1 transfer (1080p, AVC codec) is another outstanding achievement with very sharp and clear images (only a shot or two seem soft) and excellent contrast throughout. Color saturation is beautifully handled and maintained consistently with accurate and appealing flesh tones. Black levels are quite good. There is a bit of aliasing in some television broadcasts that jumps out momentarily, but it’s a minor inconvenience. The main titles are not windowboxed. The movie has been divided into 32 chapters.


    Audio Quality You Only Live Twice – 4.5/5
    The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 reconstituted sound mix has real explosive power for a film of this period. Excellent panning effects with the helicopters have been worked into the presentation, and the climactic fight inside the volcanic crater is impressive in its dynamics. John Barry’s beautiful music for the film gets a mostly frontcentric spread in the mix but there are occasional bleeds into the rears. Dialogue is always clear and resides firmly in the center channel. There is a Dolby Digital mono track for purists but it has a low bit rate and lacks fidelity on either end of the sound spectrum.


    On Her Majesty’s Secret Service – 4.5/5
    The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 sound mix is excellent (the avalanche sequence will test your sound system almost as much as any modern action film). Discreet use of the fronts and rears is noticeable if not always mixed with aplomb, and John Barry’s music (and Louis Armstrong’s rendition of “We All the Time in the World”) is once again given a greater emphasis in the fronts rather than the entire sound spectrum but it boasts good fidelity. Though most of the dialogue has been placed in the center channel, there are patches of directionalized dialogue in certain scenes. There is also a Dolby Digital mono track included.

    Diamonds Are Forever – 3.5/5
    The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 sound mix is a lackluster effort. Music and ambient sounds don’t spread much past the front channels, and the many explosions and firestorms don’t have much robustness with the LFE channel underutilized, unthinkable in a 007 movie! There is a fair amount of directionalized dialogue, however, which does give the mix some passing interest. Most of the dialogue, of course, can be found in the center channel. This is one film where the user may prefer the Dolby Digital mono mix also provided on the disc.

    The Spy Who Loved Me – 4/5
    The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 sound mix is a vast improvement on Diamonds Are Forever. There is actually some heft to the explosions and gunfire, and Marvin Hamlisch’s music score gets a full surround treatment instead of just being spread across the fronts. Though one still won’t mistake this for a modern action film soundtrack, it’s a very impressive retooling of the original stereo surround elements. The disc also includes a Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo surround mix which doesn’t sound half bad.
    Octopussy – 4/5
    Once again, the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track won’t be mistaken for a modern action movie soundtrack, and extensive surround tinkering with the original audio stems seems to have been relegated to the circus sequences and some of the other action set pieces. The rear channels go silent for lengthy periods, and John Barry’s score doesn’t get the expanse here that it has in other efforts. The dialogue is always understandable and has been placed in the center channel. There is also a Dolby Digital surround track offered on the disc.
    A View to a Kill – 4.5/5
    The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 sound mix is just a bit more full-bodied than the previous film’s audio. The horse race near the beginning puts one right in the midst of the action, and throughout there are ambient sounds which are threaded through the fronts and rears. Explosions have some real body to them. John Barry’s music also gets a nice spread through the soundfield. Dialogue is always discernible and has been placed in the center channel. There is also a Dolby Surround sound mix for purists.

    Special Features You Only Live Twice – 4.5/5
    The audio commentary is presided over by John Cork who introduces the various members of the cast and crew as their previously recorded comments are edited expertly together to fit the proper places in the film where the remarks are pertinent. He also makes important observations at moments where there are no archival remarks to fit a particular moment. A very entertaining and informative commentary.

    Unless noted, the bonus features on all the discs are presented in 480i.

    “Welcome to Japan, Mr. Bond” is a 52 ½-minute television special recapping the gals, gadgets, and action scenes from the previous four Bond films as a publicity point for the upcoming number five. There’s also some highlights of Q’s contributions to the films with cameo appearances by Lois Maxwell and Desmond Llewelyn. It’s in 1080p.

    “Whicker’s World” excerpt comes from a 1967 BBC documentary featuring director Lewis Gilbert and producer Harry Broccoli commenting on the new film. It runs 5 ¼ minutes.

    “On Location with Ken Adam” is production designer Adam’s recollection of his astounding work on the film building the massive volcano interior set for a then-astonishing $1 million. This runs 14 minutes.

    The Mission Control section from the DVDs has been eliminated and only Exotic Locations remains, a 4-minute discussion of locations used for the film narrated by Maud Adams.

    “Inside You Only Live Twice is the 30 ¼-minute documentary summarizing the salient points about the production narrated by Patrick Macnee and featuring interviews with key cast and crew members.

    “Silhouettes: The James Bond Titles” offers a loving tribute to the work of Maurice Bender who created many of the main title sequences from Dr. No up to his death in 1999. Examples from many of the credit sequences are shown (including follow-up sequences created after his death but in something of his signature style) in this 23 ¼-minute remembrance.

    “Plane Crash storyboard sequence” is exactly as it says shown in a 1 ¾-minute montage of boards and film clips.

    Three trailers (the first theatrical is in 1080p), one TV spot ad, and seven radio ads can be watched separately or in play all functions for each.

    An extensive step-through image database contains dozens of black and white and color pictures and artwork dividing the production photos into fifteen classifications.


    On Her Majesty’s Secret Service – 4/5

    The audio commentary is once again presided over by John Cork, and it’s once again a compilation of cast and crew comments both vintage and more recently obtained. Expertly aligned with the sequences being described, it’s another entertaining commentary track.

    “Casting On Her Majesty’s Secret Service is a brief 1 ½-minute vintage glimpse of George Lazenby and Diana Rigg being interviewed by the press about the movie.

    “Press Day in Portugal” is another brief 1 ½-minute look at a staged press event purportedly during the filming of the wedding scene but actually mounted the day before the actual filming in another location.

    “George Lazenby in His Own Words” is a 9 ½-minute interview with the second screen Bond being interview at the Dorchester Hotel in 1968 prior to filming and later on in 2002 reminiscing about his brief reign as Bond.

    “Shot on Ice” is a 1969 promotional film showing behind-the-scenes work on the sequence where Tracy must drive a car on ice to get away from some of Blofeld’s henchmen. It runs 9 ¾ minutes.

    “Swiss Movement” is another vintage 1969 featurette which stresses the international flavor of the casting of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and focuses on the three month shooting schedule in the Piz Gloria location. This is in 1080p.

    The Mission Control section from the DVDs has been eliminated with only Exotic Locations remaining,4 ½ minutes with Maud Adams narrating the locations for the movie.

    “Inside On Her Majesty’s Secret Service is a 41 ¾-minute documentary featuring interviews with director Peter Hunt, star George Lazenby (who discusses his hiring, the difficult shooting schedule, and his firing), and others covering the basics of the production schedule.

    “Inside Q’s Laboratory” is a 10 ½-minute overview of the Q gadgets from many of the Bond films and offering a tribute to Desmond Llewelyn who had died when the Ultimate Edition DVD was being readied for market.

    “Above It All” is a 5 ¾-minute behind-the-scenes look at how some of the ski sequences were shot by ace aerial cameraman Johnny Jordan.

    The theatrical trailer (in 1080p) runs 2 ¼ minutes, the five TV spots run 3 ¼ minutes total, and there are seven radio spots.

    An extensive step-through image database contains dozens of black and white and color pictures and artwork dividing the production photos into eight classifications.

    Diamonds Are Forever – 4/5

    The audio commentary is another outstanding compilation effort this time hosted by David Nailer who brings in comments from a host of cast and crew members and all placed thoughtfully at the moments in the film where they’re most pertinent.

    An interview with Sean Connery shot in 1971 for the BBC after filming was completed answers several questions about his return to his most famous role and the fact that this would be his last time appearing as Bond (untrue as it turned out a decade later). This runs 5 ¼ minutes.

    “Lesson #007: Close Quarters Combat” focuses on the memorable fight in the lift between Bond and Franks showing behind-the-scenes rehearsals with the stand-ins and then the two actors going at it. Narrated by director Guy Hamilton, it runs 4 ½ minutes.

    “Oil Rig Attack” is a 2 ¼-minute vignette showing some cut footage of the climactic oil rig assault.

    “Satellite Test Reel” shows special effects designer Wally Veevers’ storyboards for the satellite laser attack moving into test footage and then the final product. It runs 2 minutes.

    “Explosion Tests” shows us the layers used to make a final composite image in a climactic explosion. It also runs 2 minutes.

    There are five alternate and expanded scenes with the viewer being able to change different provided angles for the scenes.

    There are six deleted scenes which can be viewed separately or in one 7 ¾-minute block.

    “Inside Diamonds Are Forever is a 30 ¾-minute documentary about the film’s production delving into getting the franchise back on track after the disappointing returns for the previous film and featuring interviews from many of the film’s stars remembering their time on the movie, Ken Adam’s production designs, and covering the movie’s big action set pieces. The two primary Bond girls Jill St. John and Lana Wood especially praise Sean Connery as the definitive Bond.

    “Cubby Broccoli: The Man Behind Bond” is a 41 ¼-minute tribute to Albert Broccoli’s life and career giving a detailed biography of both his personal and professional failures and successes in a loving tribute to the man.

    “Exotic Locations” is narrated by Maud Adams and runs 4 ½ minutes.

    There are two theatrical trailers (the teaser is in 1080p), five TV spots, and three radio spots.

    There are thirteen image galleries available for perusing for this movie.

    The Spy Who Loved Me – 4/5
    The audio commentary is by assistant producer Michael Wilson, director Lewis Gilbert, and production designer Ken Adam. This is not as informative as the compilation commentary tracks of the earlier releases, but the three longtime friends and co-workers spend the running time remembering the struggles and the successes of making the movie even if they run out of steam before the end.

    “007 in Egypt” is a 6 ¼-minute behind the scenes look at filming in Egypt with Michael Wilson providing commentary about the tricky negotiations to shoot there and showing some highlights of that shoot.

    “Roger Moore: My Word Is My Bond” is an excerpted series of interview clips as the star of the movie is interviewed on the set. It runs 4 ½ minutes.

    “On Location with Ken Adam” finds the production designer’s home movies showing location scouting and some shots of behind-the-scenes filming. It runs 6 minutes.

    “007 Stage Dedication” is a brief look at the 1977 dedication of the new 007 stage at Pinewood. It runs 1 ¼ minutes.

    “Escape from Atlantis” is a storyboard sequence that lasts 2 ¼ minutes showing the original storyboards for this climactic sequence in the movie.

    “Inside The Spy Who Loved Me is the 40 ¾-minute documentary on the making of the movie narrated by Patrick Macnee. It concentrates on the initial struggles to get the film going with the loss of Harry Saltzman as co-producer, the leaving of original director Guy Hamilton due to production problems, other legal conflicts the team had to cope with, the filming of the spectacular opening sequence, the creation of Jaws, the casting of Anya, the elaborate production design to top all previous Bond films, the stunt coordination, the creation of the Lotus car/sub, the detailed miniature work, and the dedication of the new 007 Stage.

    “Ken Adam: Designing Bond” is a tribute to the production designer of many of the films. After a brief biography of this life and early film work, the featurette plunges right into the unusual sets he did for the franchise starting with Dr. No and proceeding through six subsequent films. This runs 21 ¾ minutes.

    The Exotic Location featurette has Maud Adams providing a 4 ¾-minutre summary of the places used for filming this movie.

    There are three theatrical trailers (all in 1080p), six TV spots, and twelve radio spots.

    The image gallery includes extensive photos and graphics arranged in nine different configurations.

    Octopussy – 4/5
    The audio commentary is by director John Glen. He covers a good amount of the film’s running time with memories of the production but there are some gaps. Still, it’s clear it is a film he’s quite proud of.

    There are two short featurettes on shooting stunts narrated by director John Glen. The first (3 ¾ minutes) involves the crashing jeeps while the second (3 ½ minutes) focuses on the airplane crash at the end of the movie.

    “Ken Burns’ On-Set Movie” is a 6 ¾-minute home movie shot by extra Ken Burns during his time on the movie in Germany.

    “On Location with Peter Lamont” features home movies of the production designer of the movie location scouting in Berlin in 1982 in this 4 ¾-minute piece.

    “Testing the Limits” shows some behind-the-scenes footage of B.J. Worth and his crew rehearsing the aerial stunts used in the movie’s climax. It runs 4 ½ minutes.

    The James Brolin screen tests show that the American actor was indeed considered to replace Roger Moore. These three tests show Brolin fighting (1 ¾ minutes), making love to Maud Adams (3 minutes), and engaging in repartee with Vijay Amritraj (1 ¾ minutes) along with Brolin speaking about his experience in an introductory 4 ½ minute piece.

    “James Bond in India” is a 1983 promotional featurette focusing on the three weeks of shooting that the company did in India in the streets, palaces, and jungles all contained in a very convenient area not separated by more than a fifteen minute drive for the company. It runs 29 ½ minutes.

    “Inside Octopussy is narrated once again by Patrick Macnee and in 33 minutes covers the basics on casting the film, the title controversy, the stunt work, and accidents that occurred during shooting.

    “Designing Bond” has Patrick Macnee describing production designer Peter Lamont’s work on the film but also tracing his work on the series from Goldfinger through The World Is Not Enough showing his contributions to each. It runs 21 minutes.

    “All Time High” music video featuring Rita Coolidge runs 3 minutes.

    There are two storyboard sequences that run 3 ½ and 3 ¼ minutes respectively.

    The Exotic Locations featurette narrated by Maud Adams runs 4 ½ minutes.

    There are four theatrical trailers (all in 1080p).

    The image gallery is divided into nineteen sections on this disc.

    A View to a Kill – 3.5/5

    The audio commentary is another compilation effort though it seems there are fewer comments this time around than in previous compiled efforts. David Nailer once again hosts the commentary with members of the cast and crew adding comments from vintage interviews where appropriate to the film as it unfolds.

    “Film ’85 BBC Report” is a 4 ¾-minute piece on the start of production with brief interviews with Rogert Moore, Christopher Walken, Tanya Roberts, and director John Glen.

    The film’s original promotional featurette runs 7 ¾ minutes and features sound bites from John Glen, Roger Moore, and producer/co-writer Michael Wilson while also mentioning the various locations, the special effects in the movie, the elaborate sets, and the multitude of stunts.

    “Streets of San Francisco” offers some deleted footage of the fire truck sequence narrated by John Glen. It runs 3 minutes.

    “Float Like a Butterfly” is some test footage of the butterfly nightclub act narrated by Glen and running 1 ½ minutes.

    There are four deleted scenes which can be viewed separately or together in one 6 ½-minute group. John Glen provides introductions.

    Three alternate/expanded scenes allows the viewer to see shots from optional angles. The Eiffel Tower sequence runs 3 minutes, the drawbridge scene runs 1 ½ minutes, and the scene where Bond saves Stacey runs 1 ¾ minutes.

    “Inside A View to a Kill is the John Cork-directed documentary on the film’s production that runs 37 ½ minutes. It covers the casting of the leads, the locations used for filming, the catastrophic fire on the Pinewood 007 Stage, the trouble with clearances in Paris, the pleasurable San Francisco shoot, the re-dedication of the newly rebuilt Broccoli 007 Stage, and the announcement of Moore’s retiring from the role of Bond.

    “The Bond Sound” summarizes the various composers who have written scores and songs for Bond films through the years with interviews with Monty Norman, John Barry, Marvin Hamlisch, Bill Conti, and others. Many of the singers who recorded title songs also get some face time in this 21 ¾-minute featurette.

    The A View to a Kill” music video is performed by Duran Duran and runs 4 ½ minutes.

    Maud Adams’ Exotic Locations featurette runs 4 ½ minutes.

    There are three theatrical trailers (all in 1080p) and four TV spot ads.

    The image gallery extends to fourteen categories for this movie.





    In Conclusion/5 (not an average)

    Fans of the James Bond films will have to decide for themselves if it makes more sense to buy this set or simply update the titles they have or buy only the ones they haven’t previously purchased. Bond 50 is a one-stop shop for the twenty-two existent 007 movies presented in mostly impressive Blu-ray transfers with most of the previously available bonus material ported over from the Ultimate Edition DVDs or earlier Blu-rays. Recommended!

    @redvienna

    Ein Link zu den Reviews hätte gereicht.

    Und Octopussy als fast Referenztransfer zu bezeichnen spricht leider nicht grad für den Reviewer...

    AW: James Bond

    Ja das sind auch "nur" die Reviews eines HTF Reviewers.

    Ich (und "Schweizer") meinten die Reviews von Robert Harris. Der hat eine eigene "Abteilung" ("a few words about...by Robert Harris") dort. Robert Harris ist Filmrestaurator ("Vertigo", "Lawrence Of Arabia" oder "Godfather") und hat einen ähnlichen Status dort wie hier Torsten Kaiser - und DER ist GAR NICHT begeistert..
