Anyone here buy the Bond 50 collection that came out last year? Hard to believe there has been 22 Bond films.

Anyway, I've been waiting for Goldeneye and Octopussy to finally come out on Blu-ray and it finally did last year with the release of this collection. Anyway, would just like to hear some thoughts on the bonus material and overall value of the collection if you think it's worth it?

If you can grab the Amazon exclusive including the book containing all the posters and promotional images for the Bond films over the years for under $175 then yes go buy it immediately. And when you examine the price in comparison to what you receive there is no question as to the excellent value of this collection. With all the bonus content and every Bond film, save Never Say Never Again, the cost per disc comes in around $7 and for a blu-ray that is a wondeful deal. Sure you can find each individual movie on blu for around $10 but you don't get any of the exclusive behind the scenes and archived content. And if you can grab the one from Amazon the book is simply amazing, it includes all the best Bond artwork from the beginning and is a must have for any Bond fan or collector.

I'm not much of a Bond fan, to be honest. I'm not even sure I've seen a full movie, ever. The music is usually good though.
Just from the few posts I have noticed in the past 3 days I think you need to broaden your horizons and open your mind a bit. To not have seen a full Bond film is shocking. It would be like saying you've never seen Star Wars. Even if you're not a huge fan these franchises are world-renowned, and critically acclaimed and should be a requirement fro anyone who watches modern movies. If you don't know the past you have no bearing on which to judge the present and future.

I don't know if it's a guy thing or what, but I'm an avid fan of Bond films though I prefer the earlier films over the new ones. My ex-gf hated it, for reasons that had more to do with Bond being this super macho, womanizing character. Which I can kind of see, but still...some of the best cinematic action scenes ever have come from Bond movies.

without a doubt it is the greatest action franchise of all time. 23 (or 22 if you forget Peter Sellers' Casino Royale) films later and they still find ways to entertain. The new movies, just like all of Hollywood are trying for a "realistic" approach, but do superheroes, spies, and action movies need to be hyper-real to be good? NO! Action and these style films are meant to dazzle and amaze, and unfortunately the terribly miscast Daniel Craig is distancing the franchise from its former greatness
