Yeah just to be clear, that clip is not from our scan.

And with a new donation from kchrules, the project is now FULLY FUNDED. Also I know I have been slow to work on this one, but I am happy to say my personal matters have sorted out recently and it will be full steam ahead very very soon on this. So sorry to everyone for the delay.

This is the 4k scan from the studio themselfs. MGM. This is not a scan from the project.

Oh my bad! It looks like MGM learned their lesson after that awful blu ray transfer.

Yea i have the full 4k file. 35gb. It looks stunning. There are cropping issues however. so they still managed to flup it up.

There are numerous 4k/h.265 Bonds out now ranging from 14gb - 20gb. I’ve not seen any above that.
Some comments over at reddit suggesting they have had the blu ray DTS-HD track from the blu ray sync’d in.
What tracks do yours have?

I’ve only spot-checked but I think they’ve done a banging job with Goldeneye. Grain is back and DNR + EE is gone. If it is cropped, it only seems to be by a fraction. I’ve only compared 1 scene to the BD though.

Golden Gun which is new to 4k has more than a fraction cropped and subjected to more muted colours than the BD. Despite the grain coming back, i’m disappointed with that.

Dr No seems too dark and contrasty. This ones a total fail as its obliterated the day for night scenes when they arrive at Crab Key and battle the “dragon”. Other ones that originally had 4k scans seem to stick to the grades of the BD’s.

The one i had (35gb copy) was pretty bloated and was trumped with a non-bloated 14gb copy. It has 5.1ch DTS english audio.

I just checked this out and, as far as I can tell, this scene looks the same as the BD. The day-for-night scene when they encounter the dragon is dark as it should be. Where exactly is the effect missing?

When the “Ultimate Edition” of the (then 20) 007 movies came out, weren’t those movies already in 4k before they were scaled down to DVD and Blu Ray? They did have a “4k Restoration” credit at the end of some of those movies I remember. And in one of the making of segments 4k came up once or twice. I can’t imagine they did new scans, maybe the original Blu Rays and DVDs were heavily compressed (or DNR’d to death in the case of the Brosnan Movies).

Also GE 35mm is beautiful. Thank you so much

I watched a sample from a view to a kill iTunes 4k and noticed quite a bit of cropping was done on the bluray . The framing and overall pq on the 4k version is much better Unfortunately it has the same crappy remix as the blurays with all the bass taken out.
I didn’t notice a huge difference in pq on living daylights, dr no or her ohmss tho haven’t seen goldeneye version but I imagine it’s a lot better

So it’s a compressed track and not the lossless DTS-HD.
I wonder why they used that because ATV4K can deliver lossless tracks.
It’s almost like they are holding back some features for the physical discs like HDR and some new lossless original audio. At least that’s what I’m hoping!
Another release with poor original audio and I’ll begin to lose the will.

It might be due to this copy floating around but when Connery is talking to Felix, then getting into the boat, unlike the Blu-ray, its’ so dark you can’t make out anything on his face. It’s all an inky black mess. Others running ATV4K have also found the same.

Thats right they did have that credit and I’ve seen a handful of them at screenings using the DCPs by Park Circus.
And you’re correct, they are the same versions (where 4K was used). I’ve been going through them and most are just a 2160p bump of the Blu Rays. Many still have that faux grain or virtually no grain. Majesty’s still has the clipped whites and all the other issues, but I could make out an uptick in detail on DAF. LALD is more curious, the framing is identical but perhaps they had gone back a few more steps in the Lowry process as there is more visible grain.

The sound is wrong on almost all the bond blurays / 4k releases before tmnd
Aside from the overdone remixes all of the mono mixes are compressed and noised reduced so badly it sounds like am radio . The only one they somewhat got right was the original mix for spy who loved me at 448kps. No noise reduction has been applied and you can hear bass during the fight scenes on the rooftop unlike the 5.1 hopefully they’ll include the original mixes uncompressed on 4k blu

I won’t hold my breath for it.
Those old 4K scans look dated, and they are going to release them on 4K Blu.

Colson - What’s the status of this project? I’m very excited to see a scan of this film. Happy to offer my help or support in anyway that I can
