I wish that these films had seamless branching for the IMAX sequences. Now that I have a 2.35:1 projection screen, I don't need to (nor can I) expand vertically. Having a director-preferred 2.40:1 framing option during these sequences via seamless branching is desired. I can't see it being troublesome to add, either.
My "wishlist" item is true subtitles in addition to SDH. I support SDH for those with the need. But for those of us who are just watching at low volumes at night (which I'm sure a lot of us do), we'd appreciate just the dialogue in the subs vs. door opening, or sound comes from offscreen.
Just because I didn't see it answered affirmatively, only Batman Begins has a new master/transfer on the Blu-ray Disc, the other two Dark Knight films the Blu-ray is the same transfer found on the original releases.
I think because it's the best Bond film from Roger Moore and it has one of the most beautiful Bond girls Barbara Bach. I like the film and would put it on my top 10 best Bond films.I’ve never understood why The Spy Who Loves me is held in such high regard relative to all the other Bond films but I’ve accepted that I’m the only one who is baffled by this
