    MGM Press Release: BOND 50 (Blu-ray)

    According to this old article, MGM bought the rights to NSNA from Taliafilm in 1997. I think that Warner just had the distribution rights for a limited amount of time, and when that expired MGM snatched it up (reportedly for somewhat over $2m). At the time MGM claimed that they bought the...

    MGM Press Release: BOND 50 (Blu-ray)

    [LEFT] I'm sure that there's a fair percentage of non-hardcore fans who aren't aware of the entire rights issue with Thunderball that led to Never Say Never Again being produced independently of Eon Productions. And even those who know that may not have been made aware that the Bond 50 set...

    Question: If I buy a region free BD from the UK, will it play on a US BD player?

    Unfortunately, there's really no way of finding out prior to purchase. If your video equipment can't handle 50hz material, it's better to let someone else be the guinea pig and go off of their report of it. BDInfo scans are great at giving detailed information regarding a given disc's...

    MGM Press Release: BOND 50 (Blu-ray)

    Ouch! Like I said earlier, I got $80 (before fees/shipping) earlier today on eBay for my 11 used pre-Craig discs. Then again, I most likely have a lot more "free time" to do all the grunt work required to make an eBay auction successful (taking pictures, typing up a blurb for the listing...

    Question: If I buy a region free BD from the UK, will it play on a US BD player?

    Actually, it all depends if the video content of the disc is encoded in 1080i50 or not. Most US BD players can't handle 50hz content, regardless of region coding. Some examples of this kind of disc are the UK releases of BBC's Human Planet and Frozen Planet documentaries. However, if the...

    MGM Press Release: BOND 50 (Blu-ray)

    Yeah, you're absolutely right. The mix between the old releases with gold logos on the spines and the new releases with the white logos will not look good at all. Also, the placement of the studio logos and the style of James Bond's picture won't match up between old and new releases. You can...

    MGM Press Release: BOND 50 (Blu-ray)

    I can understand your disappointment regarding how the final 9 movies' BDs are being treated, but I don't think the box is over-priced (especially if you consider the alternatives). The problem is that buying the 9 movies that haven't released individually before (which are coming out on 10/2)...

    MGM Press Release: BOND 50 (Blu-ray)

    That's how I interpreted it as. The 20 pre-Craig films should all have the same menu templates, and the 11 films that already came out individually should be the same in the box set.

    Blu-ray Review Castle in the Sky Blu-ray Review

    You forgot to mention that this release is DUB-TITLED. For those who don't know what that means, dub-titles are when a subtitle track is represented as the literal translation for the Japanese audio but is in fact merely a transcript of the dub's inaccurate adapted dialogue. It completely...

    Warner Archive Discussion Thread (FEEDBACK)

    Well, there's the fact that more than "niche" movies are being demoted to the Archive program, the price increases on Amazon exclusives, and cheap low-quality encodes that rival mediocre bootlegs... those are good things, right? Oh, wait, good for customers... that's a harder one.

    *** Official 2009 Warner Chat and Discussion Thread

    I'm happy that I got at least some type of answer on my question re: "NO TIME FOR SERGEANTS", but having negotiations over legal rights with heirs sounds sounds like it's going to be a looooooooong time before this comes out on DVD :frowning: I'll be surprised if it comes out before 2012.
