Bond 50: The complete 22 Film collection on Blu-ray

Bond 50: The Complete 22 Film collection

It was only a matter of time before all the James Bond films appeared on Blu-ray. This set contains all 22 films – from 1962′s Dr. No to Quantum of Solace from 2008.

The great thing about the Blu-ray format is that due to its large capacity we don’t have to worry about two disc sets, as was the case with the ‘Ultimate’ DVD collections. All that content is replicated here with a fairly thin looking ‘bonus’ 23rd disc offering some new content and some Skyfall teasers. Talking of which, there is space in this set for Skyfall, when it comes out on Blu-ray next year – a nice touch.

Tomorrow Never Dies boasts of ‘over nine hours of content’, which at first sounds amazing until you realise that the two commentary tracks are counted separately. So before you view any ‘featurettes’ or the like, six hours worth of content has already been viewed (119 minutes, times three!).

Nevertheless, a large HD TV demands Bond on Blu-ray, and this is probably the easiest and cheapest way to get them all. Amazon.co.uk lists all the discs as region free except Quantum of Solace and the bonus disc (both Region B).
