If Shot 6 is too naughty then mods can remove it ;)

What Moneypenny is naughty? :D . There's no way I'M removing shot 6 it's freakin' awesome.

I'll have to recheck my SE now as I sure as hell don't remember it being this dark. I prefer the look of shot 5 (Bond's jacket looks more black) but otherwise the UE clearly wins.

But really both are very good. Is that burnt in captions I see for the UE?

@ MLAM: Can you play DTS? If so how much better (if at all) is the new DTS over the old DD5.1? Is it only marginally better as the DVD Times reviews are saying?

Doh! I meant shot 6, but when I typed it I only had 5 pictures up with that being the last one.

Hmmm, I'll have a double check on whether its that dark or not.

Yep, they are burnt on captions, though thats for locations, not sure if foreign dialogue is the same or not.

I can only play DTS and 5.1 on my PC as I dont have a 5.1 setup in the lounge :(.

But from what I have listened to there is no obvious difference between the DTS and 5.1, but I will give the audio a good compare when I watch them in full.

Thanks. I was asking if the new DTS was better/the same/worse than the old DD5.1 (i.e - old DVD).

As those are the two tracks most will be using.

Well I kinda answered it but just not that directly,

When I skimmed through the PTS I did use the DTS track and to my ears it seems a bit more clearer than the OLD SE 5.1 but I don't really want to comment anymore than that now as I haven't given them a clear listen yet.

You go do that my friend ;) Wake up the neighbours while your at it too :D

Still think the old Grain Reduction filter has been through it as some details are now gone I think, look at Pierce's arm in the shot where he is groping that girl, his arm hairs are barely visable now.

Is it only me, or did this film really suck so much that I had to stop watching it?

It's only you.

The UE is pretty good, but not sure it's worth buying in place of the SE? If I didn't have the SE, then fine, but there's not a lot in it. The UE look warmer, redder, but not distractingly so. Good spot re. the arm hairs. I missed that upon first glance.

I'd like to see a comparison for A VIEW TO A KILL next if that's alright?

Poor MLAM will be exhausted when we've finished with him. I have the R2 SE if you need to share the workload.

I don't have the SE of TWINE, IMO the UE mostly looks better. I thought the film was great, apart from (again) a decidedly strange choice of villain. Robert Carlyle???

The only problem I had with TWINE can be summed up in two words.

'Denise' and 'Richards'.

She is HOT though. Brad shudders thinking of Wild Things.

But yeah agreed.

You're getting confused between TWINE and DAD :wink:

So are lots of women who can act. See Sophie Marceau. Same movie.

A sound rogering of course. What else?

Both were utter shite. Even TWINE is. The only good 'new' Bond-film is "Golden Eye" which really rocks.

What??? I'd definitely add TND to that list too. Michelle Yeoh and Pierce Brosnan are awesome in that playing off each other.

Of course but Denise looks well dirty in TWINE. Besides I was agreeing with you.

Yeah, I know. I was just pointing out that her looks aren't nearly enough of a virtue to sustain her horrible acting.

Sophie Marceau is gorgeous in TWINE. :)

Cigar Girl: Would you like to check my figures?
Bond: I'm sure they're very well rounded (*cheeky twinkle in his eye*)

:D

Just rewatched my SE.

Good film, especially the drama and acting.
Lots of cool action.

Hate those bloody puerile puns and innuendos though.
Please make them stop!

The raid on the caviar factory seemed very dark.
How is this on the UE?

Ooh, and what are the subs like?
The SE has optional ones positioned below the frame.

Hi everybody ! I'm new on this forum.

I took a look on this comparison and the UE seems much better than the grainy and very dark SE.

Can we have comparisons of the whole series please ? (I already have 9 UE's and I'm verry happy).

MLAM has done comparisons for most I think already. He's the only one doing them so it may take some time.
