    Nice find, shame it is only on iTunes though

    What about George Lazenby? He should get a mention here.

  •  

    How do Connery and Moore 4k movies hold up?
    is it a bit gimmicky as its more reliant on the film cameras and tech of the time?

    • +2 votes

      I was under the impression that as long as the film is in good condition genuine 4k can be achieved. But as everything is recorded digitally now, most films are 2k and upscaled.

  •  

    I bought the 50th Anniversary Collection on Blu-ray a few years back, but would’ve preferred it on iTunes. I don’t like how iTunes doesn’t give you a way to sort movies within a series tho — alphabetically or recently added doesn’t work very well.

    • +4 votes

      Ha, yes, yet they do it, still half baked though for TV series… I got the GoT Series 1-7 set, and they are grouped all under the parent folder of “Games of Thrones Season 1-7”, so once season 8 is out it won’t sit nicely under a parent title “Game of Thrones: either, my OCD is going to go nuts over this :(

      •  

        Yeah, I bought The X-Files Box Set. Wanna try going to a specific Season, a specific episode? LOL. They’re not even related. The Box Set is basically one special (and very long) standalone season…

      • +3 votes

        Rename the series to "Game of Thrones" so they all match and they'll all sit under the one show.

      Right click your films and go "Film Info". Go to the sorting tab. By default the sorting values ("sort as" field) will use the actual name of the film but you can change these fields and that will be what gets used when sorting rather than the name you see while browsing and without needing to change the films name itself. You can change the bond films to Bond 1, Bond 2…Bond N and then sorting on title should put those all sequentially. "Goldeneye" for example should appear in the "B's" section since youve told it tio use the name "Bond 2x" as its sorting value.

      Granted this takes a bit of effort, especially if you are doing TV shows, but both the movies and your XFiles issues can be fixed up by playing with the film/show info.

    Proof that Roger Moore is the best.

    • +1 vote

      I like Moore too, but it’s just proof that he just did more movies, so there’s more included in the bundle. All the movies in each bundle are worth exactly the same…

      •  

        I think I like Moore as an actor better than Connery, but I liked Connery's movies better as they seemed to be more serious.

    Not sure if this is recent, but it looks like all Bond movies are on Stan. A good alternative.

      If you get say 4K, then much harder to justify buying when $110 gets you around 10 to 11 months worth of streaming, which includes other content. But there’s something about “owning” certain content without having to run around looking for it.

      Still, I find JustWatch a useful resource, available as an app and website.

      •  

        I can't justify buying 4K on a streaming service when 4K discs exist. Wayyyy more expensive though.

        :EDIT: Thanks heaps for the JustWatch suggestion! Finally an easy way to see where's what.

      •  

        “Owning” is a very loose term as you’ve pointed out using quotes. Otherwise known as “able to stream by your account ID on their platform unlimited times but can be revoked without notice at any time”. Bit different to a disc you can play wherever/whenever or loan to a mate and can’t be taken off you.

        Mind you, I don’t own any physical media anymore (or anything that can play physical media)… just the riskier world we live in ;-)

          But you lose your discs, you’ll have to buy again, or say upgrading from DVD to Blu-ray.

          Interestingly 4K iTunes was a free upgrade from HD - not something you’d get from your library of Blu-ray/DVDs!

    Only coming up as HD for me.

    • +2 votes

      When showing me the Roger Moore Bundle, all movies say HD, but clicking on the actual movie page it shows 4K. It does however say "You can watch content in 4K only on Apple TV 4K."

  • +1 vote

    It's worth mentioning that they are all on Stan and available in 4K.

    Edit: Beaten to it. Not a bad deal if you want to permanently own them / prefer iTunes over Blu-rays.

    •  

      There's no doubt iTunes offer more portability and convenience. I can't replicate my Blu-ray setup with big TV and surround sound apart from in my living room… But OTOH seeing them on Blu-ray makes it more of an event, and not in a bad way.

  •  

    Also the Alien 6 movie set is $25 on iTunes including the new 4K version of Alien 1979

    Was tempted by the Pierce Brosnan Collection but I only want Goldeneye

    •  

      Same here. GoldenEye is one of my favourite Bond movies. Every film after that goes down hill until the (Daniel Craig) reboot.

  •  

    Dalton is in Doom patrol with Brendan Fraser now. It's pretty great.

    Cheers OP Time to make use of those discounted itunes giftcards

    When are the Daneil Craig bond coming out in 4k disc!! Not this crappy iTunes garbage

    I wouldn't pay a cent to watch Daniel Craig. Worst Bond ever.

  •  

    You can stream them every single James Bond ever made in 4K on Stan for just $17 a month.

    I don't understand why people still use iTunes movies - even the specials have cheaper options available!

    • +1 vote

      But you owned these, streaming you "rent".

    • +2 votes

      There was a time before reruns you had to sit in front of a TV to watch an episode ONCE - one time, at the TV network’s choosing. Later we were able to timeshift, bring on the video recorders! Now with streaming, we can an watch over and over, at a time of our choosing — until they’re pulled.

      I watched the final of the Cornetto Trilogy last week on Netflix, but the first two were no longer available.

      Some content is still worth “owning”, so we can be the master of when and where we want to wafch.

    •  

      Which part don't you understand about iTunes movies?

      You can buy itunes gc at 20% off and lots of their HD movies have gotten free 4k upgrades.

      There are also plenty of sites online that sell unused iTunes codes for movies very cheap.

  •  

    For those wanting to stream on Chromecast / non-apple device, you can link your iTunes account up with Movies Anywhere to stream over the web or on non-Apple device. :) Still a good deal even if you don't want to use an Apple TV! I believe they retain 4k as well? Not sure about that though.

    Edit: Ugh, might just be a US thing - I was in the US when I set it up but just realised it wants a US iTunes account. Might still be possible? Not sure if anyone else has tried this.

    •  

      US iTunes only, and Movies Anywhere annoyingly excludes Paramount, Lionsgate and MGM (not their “fault”):

      https://help.moviesanywhere.com/hc/en-us/articles/1150052819...

      But if you linked your YouTube account to it, you can see what’s on your MA account via YT as well, including AUS YT purchased content.

    •  

      Can anybody else elaborate on this. I've been apple free for very long time, just wondering how this works for people with non-apple devices?

      I'd love to own a collection like this, even if it means reactivating my iTunes account. 🤕 🔫

  •  

    Just a quick question on playing older movies remastered to 4k etc.

    These were generally in a 4:3 format? at least if I watch on my TV they do not fill the screen, do the 4k versions do the same or go full wide screen?
    Thanks

    • +1 vote

      4K has to do with resolution, not aspect ratio. Some older 4:3 will need to be remastered and can look good, like Friends. But WWII docs may end up losing top and bottom in order to reach the left and right sides without stretching if they never had more to start with, like Monty Python, Fawlty Towers etc.

      You could use your TV to fill any 4:3 content to 16:9 and see how you go.

    •  

      Most movies are widescreen (wider than 16:9, which is a compromise aspect ratio), very few were ever 4:3.

  • +1 vote

    FYI, Apple's 4K stream is limited to the TV 4K only.

    Any other device will stream 1080p.

    And I'm still very happy with this deal from back in the day: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/61491

    •  

      That's the set I got, but I probably only watched three, one of which had a skipping glitch on it too… One of the reasons I eventually softened on digital copies as the main source rather than a bonus fallback.

  •  

    would probably only consider goldeneye as the bluray is trash. the others hold up fine

  •  

    Stan has a good collection of bond 007. Is it necessary to virtually own this in Apple cloud and have one more reason to stay locked in with them?

    • +1 vote

      You have a choice not to buy.

      I remember when I first joined Stan years ago they had the Bond collection as well. By the time I wanted to watch them, they didn't. One thing I do like about "owning" content, is not having to worry about using up the number of concurrent streams I paid for. I only pay for two concurrent screens with Netflix, which sort of works as the wife uses one, the kids share one (for now) on the TV, and I watch something else if I have to. OTOH, no restrictions at all with any of the iTunes movies and shows I've purchased.

      But in truth, I always check first if something is available on one of the streaming services, and only consider if I wanted to purchase anything, which may include bonus features (iTunes Extras) like the sort of stuff you get on DVD/Blu-ray. We recently watched all the Harry Potter movies and the extras were very interesting. While the movies are on Netflix, you don't get any of the bonus material.

    •  

      Up to you.

      I buy movies on iTunes because:
      * They don't take up physical storage space in my room.
      * I can still watch movies on any device (PC, Android etc) after using TunesKit software to remove DRM protection and keep copies offline. This is reportedly legal provided you don't share or distribute your copies to anyone else.
      * I use discounted or redeemed iTunes gift cards (from my awards credit card) to buy movies. This could end up being cheaper than paying monthly subscription fees in the long term.
