A couple of weeks ago I was watching For Your Eyes Only. It’s the 1981 Bond film starring Roger Moore. In fact, it’s the only one I like out of his tenure as 007. I skipped the opening pre-title sequence because it seemed to be their way to quickly kill off Blofeld after they lost the rights to use the character plus it has zero to do with the story post-titles.
During the viewing I started to feel a want for a better quality video transfer. I do, after all, own every film up to The World Is Not Enough of the early 2000s Special Edition DVDs. This is something I don’t usually care about one way or the other, but for whatever reason I did this time. I started looking for Blu-ray releases and found reviews on Blu-Ray.com of singles of the whole “Bond 50” anniversary set. I decided to purchase just the few I really enjoy so as to get what I want without breaking the bank for the $200 set.
I found the five I wanted at Target (The Living Daylights, Licence To Kill, and Tomorrow Never Dies) and at Wal-Mart (For Your Eyes Only and Goldeneye). I was happy to see that all of the many extras which were on my DVD versions were also present here along with, sometimes, more (ie: a third ‘Eyes Only audio commentary by Roger Moore).
