Skyfall hits dvd/blu ray on Feb 12th
Posted Image

might wait for prices to drop, as the movie didnt quite match my expectations. It was a good Bond, but not great.

Cool, I'll be getting this one to round out my collection, I loved it but it could have used a bit more action sequences.

I haven't seen this one, but I love the Daniel Craig ones. I just saw this morning it's available on Xbox live to download if anyone was interested.

I got a great deal on amazon for the complete James Bond collection on Blu-Ray and they left a space in the set for this movie.

Definitely a must buy for me!

Yeah, I have 300 microsoft points, bummer. I use bing rewards and usually get 200 points per month from them alone:

I get 10 free points if you join with that link(hint, hint, hint).

My local gas station here in chicago has a rewards program too, and about once a year, I cash mine in for a 1200 microsoft card, lol.. last year I saved up a little extra and got a gas gift card, but I'm almost at enough to get another microsoft card... so maybe I will again this time.

for the James Bond super fan, check out the newest Mystery Science 3000 set with Operation Kid Brother: A 007 rip-off featuring Neil Connery and many actors from the Sean Connery era.

I am not big into james bond. Saw the one and the other from connery and moore. Never saw the ones with dalton and the other guy. I really loved the brosnan bond. Saw all of them. As for craig, casino royal was just boring to me. I have quantom of solace on blu- ray but i havent seen it yet.

I enjoyed Skyfall and will buy it if not next week the week or so after. I've thought that Craig has made a pretty good Bond and hope we see him in a couple more before they decide to get someone else. I grew up with Bond because my Father was a huge fan and I was able to take him to see Skyfall in IMAX, which was the first time in several years he'd been out to a movie and his first time to an IMAX movie.

That's awesome.

My father was a huge movie fan as well and all you had to do was start talking about a movie to put him in a good mood.

That's very nice, I'm sure he loved all the old school Bond references, my father is sort of the same with Chuck Norris he can talk for hours about his movies and Texas Ranger series.

Question to those who have the Bond movies on Blu Ray are they worth getting? The reason I ask is because I already have the entire collection in DVD the special box set that came out over 6 years ago and I have been wondering if it's worth to repleace it for the blu ray ones.

I saw it at Target today and was tempted to get it, but I'll have to rent it for now. I'll probably get it later when I can find it for $5 used, lol.




That reminds me.. I think I'm going on 2-3 years with my unfinished Bond custom GI Joe figure, lol.. I think it's time to finish that baby up.

I heard on the radio today that they're planning some kind of Bond tribute for the Oscars (maybe not the Oscars.....but some award show) and they were going to get all the Bond actors together on one stage. It was reported that everyone was down for it except Brosnan.

Yeah I read the same thing on a movie news site, guess Brosnan is still bitter of being told that he got too old for the role.

I was for him doing one more movie but I can't deny that Craig has done a great job.

Brosnan's retort to the Oscar rumor...

Brosnan waited a looong time to be 007. He more than earned it after that Remington Steele jerk around. And when his time did come, he owned it. Wish the stories were a bit better, but he was still top notch Bond

I thought he did a great job and his movies weren't that bad at all...I still love him driving the Tank through Moscow!
