Agreed. Especially for Bond films. I'm always a sucker for those.
Commentaries, at least one, are a must. It bugs me till this day that QOS is the lone Bond film without a single commentary track.
What I'd really enjoy, although judging by how most studios have treated blu-ray releases over the past year or so makes this unlikely, is a full-fledged 'making of' documentary. Not a 20 minute featurette. I'm talking 90 minutes (or longer) that delves into the filmmaking process, from the script to the movies theatrical release. That sort of bonus feature was a little more popular back in the DVD days, and even a little during the early blu-ray years, but we don't see those much anymore on discs. It's usually just a bunch of 10 minute featurettes, many of which are rather fluffy in terms of content.
BTS or "making of" featurettes
But yes, I'd definitely pony up some extra dollars for a deluxe blu-ray.
Now that I think of it, wouldn't be it neat if SP was among the first films to get a 4K blu-ray release (or ''ultra high-def'' I believe it's being called)?
It'd be neat, but the TV for that picture is expensive.
I do have the Bond 50 Blu-ray box of course, but as said, it is so much more convenient just to start the Apple TV box and start the movie in your iTunes library.
THE USUAL FUN POPPING A BLU RAY IN
- Player loading (up to 30 seconds)
- Warnings on screen
- Lecture of how old you should be to watch the damn movie
- Information of how Sony or whoever responsible for the movie does not share the opinion of anyone giving interviews or doing commentaries.
- Finally a first menu, choose language!
- Another 30 seconds to load (only God knows what!)
- Finally a menu. Now choose to play the damn movie but first endure the 20 seconds animated menu bringing you finally the PLAY feature
- All in all I say, at least 5 minutes have passed that felt like 10.
- Trailers that cannot be skipped for movies you don't want to see NOW. (Another 6 minutes or only 2 if you fast forward the crap).
OR the goddamn Blu-ray won't even play (please make sure you have the latest software update for your player go to Pioneer/update.com and find the right update on your own you lazy twat)
So your PS4 just skips all the warnings, lectures, trailers and menu build ups? :)
Or maybe that's just on the damn German versions of the discs...
The worst are Universal Blu-rays.
And I was talking in general of course, the Bond discs start fairly quick actually but still it takes about 2 minutes.
I bought two high end Pioneer Blu-ray players 4 years ago.
I don't have a PS4 yet, probably before Christmas :)
I'm more of a Nintendo guy.
Sam Mendes commentary (his Skyfall commentary is a great listen)
Cast commentary (all principle cast)
In depth 2hour making of documentary
All the video blogs
Behind the scenes photo gallery
A history of Spectre in the Bond films documentary
Isolated music track in dts-HD master audio 7.1
World Premiere footage
International premiere footage
HD digital copy
and a retro old school poster design for the cover....
i would love that... so far, i think every film in Craig's run had some sort of preproduction drama that would've made for an excellent 'making of' documentary..
i have a 3 disc DVD set for Rob Zombie's remake of 'HALLOWEEN' - on one of the discs is a 3 hour long production diary - and it spans from when Zombie started writing the script, to casting, location scouting, storyboarding, makeup effects, production and set design, costuming, and almost every day of filming (behind the scenes sort of stuff) - all the way up to the last day of filming.. they don't go into the editing or anything like that... but i love just sitting down and watching it..... i wish more films did this, so i know what you mean - one like that for a Bond film would be awesome...
if i ever get my chance to direct a Bond movie, i'll be sure to include one just for you ;) lol.
Disc 3: Not released music on CD.Tracklist on back of the booklet.
I'd also love a special edition that came with the Blood, Sweat and Bond book (Dreaming!) or a Hot Wheels DB10 (I eat that stuff up... and the Dark Knight Trilogy box set came with Hot Wheels Tumbler, Batpod and "The Bat").
Come to think of it, it would be cool if they released a Craig Box Set like that with a DB5, DB9 (DBS?) and DB10.
Geez Louise, that's a very precise wish list.
Dolby Atmos - interesting point, anyone know if SPECTRE is being released for Atmos in theatres? I haven't heard anything
According to the IMDB page SPECTRE does have a Dolby Atmos track
Wouldn't this be a better extra for a special edition of the QOS bluray instead of the SP bluray?
Bond better have that too! :D
