    ...something special from MGM...such as...previous BOND movies(especially the PIERECE BROSNAN ones) with additional DTS track in DVD re-releases...or even 2disc sets?

    Probably not, but i'm hoping for a re-release of Licence to Kill - uncut.
    recent rumours link Gary Oldman, Kevin Spacey, and even Sean Connery to play the baddie.

    What was edited out of Licence to Kill? I wasn't aware that the current version was incomplete.
    I don't believe that we will get any reissues with the Bond films, but never say never (again). MGM did a stellar job with these DVDs. Extras can't get much better than this.
    The only good-sounding discs are the three most recent--GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies and The World is Not Enough. Those are the only ones that I would like have available in dts.

    hi
    possible. MGM has stopped production the Bond's dvds.
    And Bond in 2002 will be big release.
    and now they "may have" embraced DTS, so it's possible.

    How about the European cuts fully restored? They're looking pretty bad.

    First, to say MGM has embraced DTS is a bit faulty. Hannibal was a co-production with Universal, so until something shows up soley under the MGM banner, don't consider them in the DTS fold.
    Remember... Artisan, T2 and out (I question the validity of the DTS on Twin Peaks); Warner, 5 discs and out.
    I wouldn't expect any re-issues on the Bond's what more could they put on them? THe only thing I've heard is some BS crap aobut them being package with replicas of some Bond vehicles.

    I already have all the Bond dvds so I could care less about reissues. However, I would like to see the lovely Emmanuelle Beart play a Bond girl in a future JB flick! Ol' James would never want another woman after that... [​IMG]

    Licence To Kill uncut would be the version released to Japan which has a few more seconds of violence/gore than even the US version, i know this because im into all things bond in a massive way.
    The original UK version was cut by 38 seconds!!!!
    the order of editedness goes like this for Licence To KIll....
    Most Cut - UK (CINEMA)
    Next - European Cut
    Next - American Cut
    Uncut - Japan Cut
    I dont see why MGM dont just release a R1 unrated version.

    I hope they fix OHMSS along with License To Kill. I would also like to see Octopussy get the 5.1 mix it should have gotten. It was released as a 70mm dolby six track presentation in some theatres.
    If they want to remix some of the mono tracks that would be fine by me too.

    What I'm hoping for:
    MGM cleans up the documentaries on the Octopussy
    and A View to a Kill discs. Nix the VHS footage,
    or digitally clean it up. The shots of the fire-gutted 007 stage in the Peter Lamont documentary had old-style, pre-flying-erase-head rainbow glitches. I never accepted those on VHS and would never tolerate them on DVD. There are also some digital glitches in Inside A View to a Kill
    in the farewell to Roger Moore montage. I passed on these two discs for these reasons and though these are my two least favorite Roger Moores, would like to buy them improved.
    Put the burned-in subtitles back in Octopussy and The Living Daylights.
    Remove the Diamonds Are Forever pause screen from the Octopussy disc.

    Oh yeah..I almost forgot...aside from everything else mentioned above, I would like to see the "Tribute To Q" segment that appeared on the US VHS and Region 2 DVD of "The World Is Not Enough" included on any a re-issued TWISE DVD. Its disgusting that it wasn't issued the first time around. For those who don't know, there was a tribute to Desmond Llewelyn to the track "Nobody Does It Better" that for some unknown reason was left off the Region 1 DVD.
    Do the right thing MGM and put it on the DVD.
    I would also like to see any film that didn't get an "Inside..." documentary the first time, get one this time.
