James Bond Ultimate DVD Boxset
Back in the good old days, before I discovered the world of the Internet, one of the means of entertainment was television and movies. There certainly has been a lot of movies that have left an everlasting impression upon me and one of them would have to be the James Bond series. Whenever a new one came out to the cinema I would bug my brother to take me (I wasn’t allowed out by myself back in those days) or if one was airing on TV I would always watch it. Since the introduction of DVDs, we’re seeing many movies brought back, and one of them was all of the James Bond movies in the Ultimate DVD Boxset.
I originally saw this boxset during Christmas last year but alas after buying presents already I didn’t have the funds to purchase it. Eventually a few months later I spotted the same boxset except this one was different to the one I spotted at Christmas as it included the latest movie Quantum of Solace. All up this costs me $248 AUD, and with 22 movies all up, it works out to be around $11 per movie. Quite a bargain I reckon.
One of the other reasons I bought this boxset was to test out my new speakers in Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound. All I can say is OMFG it sounds so awesome. So over the past few weeks I haven’t watched all that much anime mainly because I was on the mindset “screw anime, I want to watch James Bond” but now that I have finished the entire set I feel rather empty. Normally I don’t buy DVDs since I never actually watch them, but at least with this boxset I can pick any movie and watch it any time.
Also being a James Bond fan, a long time ago I also bought a toy Aston Martin Vanquish from HLJ which I randomly found when browsing the Bargain Bin. The front wheel actually turn, the roof comes off, the front grill opens to show missiles, and under the bonnet it has the dual shotguns. This is the Aston Martin seen in Die Another Day. I hope one day I can sit in an Aston Martin and explore some of the places that James Bond has visited on his missions.
Are there any movies that have impressed you over the years? Do you happen to watch them again and again?
