DN, FRWL, GF and TB are the most improved of all, especially because they are cropped correctly, showing the true aspect ratio of the movie, and showing more detail. The colors and contrast levels were just improved, with no noticeable changes at all. For the other movies, that depends of the viewer. In my case, some changes were hard to understand, like the colors in You Only Live Twice, wich were muted for most of the picture, ruining the photography of Freddie Young. It's a kind of mixed bag, really. Some movies became great (DN, FRWL, GF, MR, just for a example), other became great but with some questionable changes (OHMSS is the only on my head right now, but there are others), and others are just "good" going down to "crap" (Pierce Brosnan's Movies). The Roger Moore's films in the 80's have been photographed by Alan Hume, and had, on previous editions, a high level of brightness on the picture. I don't know it was intentional, but it was "corrected" on the UEs. I liked this "correction", but I think that someone on this world didn't. Like I said, that just depends of the viewer: If he watched the previous editions, and if he prefers "reality" to "preservation".

I have the coverage and review of the Ultimate Editions by the 007 magazine, if I wasn't clear enough (due to my bad english, I believe ) . If you want it, just send me a PM.

About the seeds, yes, I need, because there are one guy seeding the torrents, but another guy and me are getting download rates at 0.4 KB/s. If you could seed this, I would be very glad. But, I am just downloading Dr. No, because my HD is full, and can´ t afford more 4 GB right now. By the time I (hope) finish the download, I will clean my HD from some stupid things that I have here and continue seeding, and start on the next movie (wich I think is gonna be GF, because I am waiting for the new edition of FRWL by Fanfiltration!). If you could help us with the torrent, I will be most glad!!
