    I bought the Bluray, a sky store HD download, and when sky figure out where my DVD
    is, I'll have that too. :)

    I haven't bought it yet. Just don't get the time to sit and watch a film any more so will buy it when I want something else. Not in any rush to spend money (think I'm getting like my dad!)
  • It's a better than average Bond film and I'm glad it's doing well financially.

    More Bond films, please!

    Watching SP on BluRay last night. Third viewing after seeing it twice in the cinema - and
    I loved it. I don't really get why some are down on it. Craig is fantastic. It is superbly photographed and directed - and at nearly 2 1/2 hours, it flies by.
  • Looks great on Blu-ray and really helped me re-evaluate it after having some reservations about it in the cinema. Just a shame they seemed to skimped on extras this time around. Especially with regards to a Mendes commentary which was one of the highlights of the Skyfall disc.

    I agree that this film looks splendid on blu ray. I had a much better feeling watching it on the small screen than in the theatre. All Hoyte's great work is much more appreciable.

    I agree.

    We get the dvd/ BD release this coming week at the 2 of March. And already spend my bd money on Touch of Evil with Orson Welles & Sullivan's Travels by Preston Sturges. Money better spend I would say.

    No question, especially in the case of the Welles. I like Sturges' pictures, but they can get a little bit overdone at times (meaning his agenda).
  • I would have thought that some people would know where to find some screencaps from the movie. When SF came out the screengrabs were everywhere.

    I'd love to see all the shots from Mexico but have looked everywhere on the internet. Please help!!!!

    @Pierce2Daniel, here are two good spots for SP screencaps:

    http://screenmusings.org/movie/hd/Spectre/

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/antovolk/albums/72157656192638072/page1

    Unfortunately, there isn't a massive amount of images out there yet. Of course, since the Blu-ray did only just come out, maybe with more time we'll get more.

    Because you keep posting in it, @PropertyOfALady!

    In all seriousness, there seems to be three main groups actively posting in this thread, giving it continued life:

    Group 1: The Newsies- These members use their time on the forum to post news about the SP Blu-ray and how it's selling worldwide, reporting on its success and what it means for future Bond disc releases. They remain a mostly neutral party in the battle over whether or not the Blu-ray is worthy or not.

    Party leader: @Red_Snow

    Group 2: The Magpies-These members openly share their love for the disc release of SP, flaunting its presentation. They are willing to accept the fact that the special features are near nonexistent and underwhelming, drowning themselves in a number of shiny separate steelbook purchases of the Blu-ray in some twisted form of hedonism.

    Party leader: @Gustav_Graves

    Group 3: The Anti-Blu Brigade-These members use most of their time to rip EON a new one for allowing such a substandard disc release to be brought forth to the public. They sight the lack of any new content beyond the feature showing a behind the scenes look at the PTS as the crux of the issue, and condemn the copy and pasted YouTube videoblogs and lack of commentary as unacceptable.

    Party leader: @TheWizardOfIce


    I think you can guess which group I owe my allegiances to. ;)

    :)) will there ever be peace between the groups ? ....... we can only hope.

    I find myself somewhere between group 2and group 3.

    I'd have to say I'm in group 3. I think it's just a lazy effort on the last few releases as far as special features go. As long as they are selling the Blurays and DVDs like hotcakes, we will most likely be stuck with barebone releases for a while.

    Sadly I agree. :(

    I guess I'm mainly in Group 2.

    I'm definitely in group 3, but I wouldn't say I'm anti-blu, mainly anti-laziness/anti-incompetency. For a series going this long, there's just no reason why another installment in the series should ship in a barebones style like this for the fans. Hopefully they get their act together the next time around, but I won't be surprised if that isn't the case. Still happy to own it on blu-ray, though!

    Compared to the special features they made for the 40th Anniversary for all 20 movies the Craig-era "special features" are an insult.

    But then I'm accustomed to that kind of release politics so I don't openly complain. Some of the best television shows get bare bones DVD releases, it's a crying shame.

    Honoured as I am to be nominated to lead the 'We're Sick Of EON Taking Us For Granted' party I've still gone and bought the Kimchi Steelbook like a mug punter. Is that a resigning issue?

    @TheWizardOfIce, each of us was going to get the Blu-ray release at some point anyway, regardless of our umbrage towards its lesser aspects, so the throne is still very much yours, my good sir. Of course, we still don't have to be proud of what we got. ;)

    At least the detail that went into it seems to be leagues better than the standard, public blu-ray/DVD release.

    Just a shame they can't do anything about the disc.
