    We'll see if they deliver the goods. They have sooooo much $hit in the archives they could release 3 disc DVD sets for each film. As long as I get to see Pierce Brosnan's original gunbarrel scene and Sean Connery's gunbarrel scene w/o the hat, I'll be happy...

    I'm really looking forward to this new collection. I only have the Bond movies on VHS now because I heard about this new collection when they announced Casino Roayale a while ago.

    I just hope the movies will be uncensored, unlike the DVD's that are out now where GoldenEye and a few others have had cuts (atleast the UK ones)-

    Do we know if they will be available individually? If they are, I will keep my fingers crossed for a version to Licence to Kill with the flame stunt back in in entirity!......

    Yeah, I'm not interested at all if there's no individual releases. Of course, it's a moot point if there's no US release.

    I noticed the blurb on Commander Bond about GoldenEye and License to Kill possibly getting uncut editions. Are the uncut versions really that different from the theatrical releases?

    Well, the UK has stricter censorship in terms of violence. I believe you can't show head butts, stuff like that. I'm sure the uncut versions are just the US releases.

    The Roger Moore commentaries alone might sell it for me!!!

    I hope they get as many commentaries as they can...Timothy Dalton, etc...

    Unfortunately it looks like Brosnan's & co. have burned bridges for the time being.

    And I'm sure Connery's not in the least bit interested in 're-treading' Bond-mania...:(

    I love the new Bond Films USE DVDs - they are great stuff if you're big 007 fan.

    I've already bought a solid number of 007 flicks on DVD and a few on VHS. When they re-release them it ticks me off. lol

    The R1 DVD covers are atrocious. But not as bad as the Superman R1 DVD Covers. Those covers make Bond look like Da Vinci artwork.

    Dr No - not too bad because of the relative simplicity compared to the other covers. The Dr No logo is terrible and makes this look like a fan cover. 2/5


    [​IMG]

    FRWL - not bad at all really, proberbaly the best one. But still, could be so much better. 3/5



    [​IMG]

    Goldfinger - awful. Terrible shot of Connery, looks heavily airbrushed, and doesn't go with the backing shot of the golden girl. 1/5



    [​IMG]

    Thunderball - is this a joke? 1/5



    [​IMG]

    YOLT - Better. 2/5


    [​IMG]

    OHMSS - Lazenby looks like a painting and the title obscures too much of the 007 logo. Amateur. 2/5

    DAF - Not too bad. The DAF logo screams laziness. 2/5


    [​IMG]

    LALD - One of the better ones. Effort has gone into the logo but it still looks like an 1980's action movie. 3/5



    [​IMG]

    TMWTGG - Good layout of the main pic, but it looks like a video game version of Moore and not the real thing. 2/5



    [​IMG]

    TSWLM - You can tell these were rushed covers. Moore looks like he's been shrunk to the size of a 14 year old boy. Just lazy. 2/5



    [​IMG]

    Moonraker - Not bad, I suppose. 2/5



    [​IMG]

    FYEO - No! The whole point of the woman's legs is that we see Bond in between them, it's suggestive and it's dramatic. Parking a car infront of her - not even a good shot! - is just woefully bad. What, she takes her crossbow with her whenever she drives somewhere? 1/5

    Octopussy - One of the better ones, the main pic is not too cluttered and the logo is good. 3/5



    [​IMG]

    AVTAK - Not too bad, doesn't look very exciting though, does it? 2/5



    [​IMG]

    TLD - Not bad, Dalton is too airbrushed looking. 2/5

    Now look at the previous TLD DVD...

    [​IMG]

    Now THAT is a DVD cover.






    [​IMG]

    LTK - Looks like Dalton's head has been in a vice. Look how small his mouth is. Why have the two women on the front? Just have one and make her bigger. 2/5



    [​IMG]

    GoldenEye - One of the best. Good shot of Brosnan, action, good logo. 3/5



    [​IMG]

    TND - Just no. Cluttered. Colours too washed out. Most of this cover is grey, white and blue. 2/5

    TWINE - Less messy than TND but the colours comment still aplies. 2/5



    [​IMG]

    DAD - That's just a crap DVD cover. Awful. Wasting space in the middle with sea and sky, and cluttering up the edges with photos is just bad design. 1/5



    [​IMG]

    This is a FAR better cover.









    To sum up, this is quite the worst bunch of DVD covers I have ever set eyes on. They're a total bloody shambles. The grey and white photos are ugly, and the top of the boxes have the name on the film on top of the 007 logo ontop of the photos! That's just waaaaaaaaay too mcuh, too cluttered. The pictures of the Bond actors are almost all badly chosen, over-manipulated, and none are very flattering.

    Do MGM WANT people to buy these DVDs?
