OMG where can I watch this?


As a 10-year old child, I already knew all Bond films by heart. A three-second scene sufficed to tell which film it was from.

Not even sure where to begin. I know Encore Movie Channel is the one listed, and in the US it's offered on all the cable/satellite networks. Maybe someone else knows.

007 always had his Martini shaken not stirred.

Except for one time.

Do you remember when that was?.

Wow, that's a hell of a steal. I own probably half of them, accrued as gifts over the last few years, but I would kill for that whole set. I love how Blu-Ray is cheaper than regular!

I have the whole lot on Blu Ray. Nothing better with the 50'' HD TV and surround sound. I watch over and over and never get tired of watching the films. I prefer the older ones with Connery and Moore. Dr No / You Only Live Twice / From Russia With Love / Diamonds are Forever.

Connery IS Bond.

I see the Bonds as they come out in theaters, but no one can compare to Sean Connery.

I like that they're showing the Bond film that almost never gets shown in "Bond-a-thons"- On Her Majesty's Secret Service. I heard it said once, and I agree, that if On Her Majesty's Secret Service had starred Sean Connery or Roger Moore instead of George Lazenby it would be considered to be one of the best of the Bond films.

I agree that it's great to see some of the lesser-played ones. Also agree about OHMSS. I also thought Lazenby was a fine Bond...he just couldn't compare to the hype expected after the fantastic Connery. But OHMSS is a solid movie.

Goldfinger was not that great a movie. I have no idea why it is viewed as such a classic.

It's probably my least favorite of the Connery films (aside from Never Say Never Again which I don't really count).

I agree. Also, one of the best things about the Moore films was the soundtracks. "The Spy Who Loved Me" and "Live and Let Die" in particular had great soundtracks, but "For Your Eyes Only" was off the charts. That sting when they discover the sunken remains of the Valletta is one of my favorite moments of movie music of all time. Plus the gunbarrel music has cowbell!

Live and Let Die is just about my least favorite Bond movie. HOWEVER, it has my favorite theme song.

It's probably the best known Connery film IMO. I haven't watched it enough to say it was it wasn't a favorite. An interesting fact is For You're Eyes only was filmed in Corfu, Greece. When I visited there in the mid 90's I didn't know or realize this. Watching it recently I recognized some if the architecture.

Yes they have filmed in some really nice places. I have visited where they filmed.

Also ''From Russia with Love'' I always wanted to visit the underground Basilica in Istanbul and Aghia Sophia since I saw that movie as a kid. It was great to see it.

I also saw the British Colonial Hilton in the Bahamas when I was there which is where ''Thunderball'' was filmed.

While scouting locations in Japan for YOLT, Cubby Brocolli and Harry Saltzman decided NOT to board BOAC 911 from HND. It later crashed near Mt Fuji, killing all on board.

If you ignore the horrendous racism it's OK in my opinion. Moonraker is far worse!

31 OA260 : Yes some of the lines over the years are great.
32 Boeing717200 : I'm sure it had something to do with Honor Blackman's role.
33 aerorobnz : I just watched it again. Loved it. Yummy asian bond girls and the inspiration for much of Austin Powers.

35 petertenthije : Does BluRay really make a difference on the older Bonds? I have no doubt that on the newer movies it might make a difference as they are recorded in
36 OA260 : I know you can sometimes get good deals on Ebay or in stores as a multi pack. I paid around £10-£13 for each of my original ones. Was well worth it
37 cjg225 : I believe it is also Connery's favorite, though he says Goldfinger has a special place in his heart because he had to learn to play golf for the film

44 HomSar : My main complaint about Blofeld was that he was played by a different actor in every movie. If you're going to have the same villain in several movies

46 HomSar : Yep, those are the two.

48 homer71 : All of the Bonds were shown uncut and without commercials (except for a few minutes in between movies) - it is a premium movie channel ala HBO, Showt
49 Post contains images deltadawg : Connery is the BEST. However, I must say though I like Craig as I see him as a modern day Connery. I never liked Dalton though, can't say exactly why

52 PITrules : Yes, I believe that was Dr. No.
53 bennett123 : A PanAm Boeing B707 appeared in both Dr No and From Russia with love. In both films it was probably the same plane.
