Action & Adventure movie

Goldeneye: The 18th James Bond adventure was a runaway box-office success when released in 1995, thanks to the arrival of Pierce Brosnan as the fifth actor (following the departure of Timothy Dalton) to play the suave, danger-loving Agent 007. This James … see full wiki

Four great movies, plus "Live and Let Die!"

Here we are at the third boxed set in this series and one of the best. It's got four exceptional movies and one that... well, has a great theme song.

You can get these movies seperately in single-disc form, or you can do what I did and buy this collection! Not only do you get all the movies in pristine new transfers, along with 5.1 surround, but you also get a second disc for each movie loaded with more extras than you can imagine. Behind-the-scenes stuff, rare outtakes, radio ads, trailers, etc. It's pretty comprehensive for each movie.

As for the movies themselves, "GoldenEye", "For Your Eyes Only" and "From Russia with Love" are part of the great staples in any James Bond collection. For me, though, the real gem is "On Her Majesty's Secret Service", which is far better than most people would credit (I'd say the second-best of the original Bond movies, behind only "Goldfinger"). George Lazenby makes a perfectly fine James Bond, and had he chosen to stay on to continue the role past this film, I think he would've been second only to Connery. As it is, he turns in a great performance in a vastly underrated film.

As for the not-so-great film in the bunch, "Live and Let Die"... yeah, not a lot I can say in favor of it. Great theme song, but still. Who would've thought there'd be a James Bond blaxploitation film?

This set gets five stars for the movies and five for the extras! What a great set. Buy it! :)
