Me think they don't go without each other, they form a pack, a united pact.

True, since QoS is actually a sequel to Casino Royale. Even still, if I were to watch the two together, then I would still say 'the first half' is more enjoyable than 'the second half'!

Re: Quantum of Solace on Bluray

I like Craig, but to me these aren't standing the test of time. They are good action flicks, although I don't like the fighting style (more like the editing and fast cuts) in QofS- But as a Bond flick they are lacking. I truly miss Moneypenny, Q, and when done with some restraint... the gadgets.

Also with 2-3 years between movies this next one may be Craig's last. He's not getting any younger.

Re: Quantum of Solace on Bluray

There is also a rumor floating around that the studio is in financial trouble. While this won't stop production of the latest Bond film, the rumor is it may slow down the release dates (maybe indefinitely) of the rest of the Bond movies on Bluray. I for one hope this doesn't happen but there hasn't been a new set of Bond movies released since March 2009. Seeing this is prime Christmas shopping season, this would have been the next release date.

Re: Quantum of Solace on Bluray

Bill, I agree. I actually really like Craig as Bond. The films do lack some of the typical "Bond Movie" characteristics as you mentioned, which is kind of bad, but in some ways I kind of prefer.

Aside from that, it would be sad to hear if they don't release more of the bond movies on blu-ray. I've already invested in the ones released thus far, it would be a shame not to be able to finish out the series.
