Hey Everyone, I don't know about you guys but news on these Ultimate Edition's have been pretty dry lately, until now. Sir Roger Moore is currently in negotiations with MGM Home Video/Sony to record audio commentaries to his seven 007 films in the up and coming Ultimate Edition James Bond DVD series, according to reports on his official site. His PA Gareth Owen told the site: "it is planned to record the commentaries during September for the disc's 2006 release". John Lowry talking about film restoring:- Describe the differences we'd see between the previous Bond DVDs and the images you're creating now. The major difference we get using high-definition scanning and processing is the higher resolution that migrates to the DVD. It breaks the rules, but it works. You Only Live Twice was one of the films we worked on to demonstrate the process to studio executives. We scanned and enhanced the material, and then reduced it to DVD resolution to show the folks at MGM what the DVD would look like. Comparing that with the prior results — it was like a brand-new movie. It has to do with whether you process at high-def or you process at 2K or 4K and then reduce to high-def. Certainly the best results we get — for HDTV broadcasting and future high-def DVDs — are on things we process at a higher resolution. The fine detail does migrate down to the next level, without question. The rest of the John Lowry article is at mi6.co.uk, same with the info on the Roger Moore Commentaries. By the way does anyone know more information on whether The Spy Who Loved to Goldeneye, will get the 5.1 track re-done as well? I had this piece of info on wordpad about Mi Casa that I copy and pasted from the net last year, I'll try to find the source again. Walking into the living room (Studio A), the lights dimmed as the instantly recognizable James Bond logo appeared on the screen with the time code scroll information above the picture. The real treat began as the familiar sounds of the Paul McCartney-penned tune “Live and Let Die” began to fill the room. Biles leaned to me and whispered, “We were able to use the original, never before heard George Martin quad mix of this song for the DVD.” As the bombastic horns sound, the power of one of the most classic pop songs ever comes over me in a full sonic assault in 5.1 surround. Not only could you hear and feel the impact of this surround mix. Can't Wait. Now I can only hope that some more isolated scores come out, like Michael Kamen's Licence to Kill & Marvin Hamlisch's The Spy Who Loved Me, both never got a proper or complete score release on CD. The David Arnold Score on the Tomorrow Never Dies DVD with 5.1 was great! Lastly who's producing these DVD's? John Cork? Thanks, and Cya Everyone.
