I'm not sure if the James Bond Collection has some issues, or maybe it was the audio set-up. 

 

I'm gonna watch Spectre tonight, so hopefully there's no problem. 

I take it that means you have the BR BOX SET....  did you have version 1 or 2... as I recall, they redid a set because of false advertising as Never Say Never Again wasn't in it...  but I haven't heard about audio issues... and any I have watched since I got it last summer haven't had audio issues.

It's most likely my fans.  

 

Always, finally watched Spectre. It's really good, and ties into most of the films before it. It's not my favorite of the Craig films, that one going to Skyfall, but I'd say it's No. 2. Batista and whoever Blofeld is blew it out of the water.  

 

So... why does this recent movie have to exist then? For an interesting send-off? Can't wait to finally see it then.

The one without Never Say Never Again, which I couldn’t care about anyways.

Oh, neither had it...but it couldn't say it was a complete Bond set without having that one and they got sued over it so they had to rerelease the set without that written on the box or whatever.  I have the dvd of that one though, but don't have the BR.

Hmmm.... how do I answer without spoilers?

 

Lets say they tie up the Bond, Mr. White's daughter from SPECTRE, Blofeld, and SPECTRE angles by the end.  They wanted to end Craig's last film in a big way and they arguably did that.  Of Craig's movies Skyfall is without question the best.  I'd argue that Quantum of Solace and No Time To Die flip flop for last two depending on my mood.  Casino Royale and SPECTRE kind of flip flop for #2 and #3 because of story beats.  SPECTRE also kind of hits me in a odd way with the Blofeld/SPECTRE plotline and the ties of Blofeld to Bond.  The legacy movies never made that play and I have no idea if the books did...   I am undecided if I like the play they made or not.

Ghostbusters Afterlife/theater
--WATCH IT... ALL OF IT..... GOT mid credits and end credits scenes.  It is what the 3rd one should have been, no disrespect intended for that movie but once you see this one you will get what I mean.  The young girl is a dead on ringer for a grandchild of Spengler.  Her older brother fits that family mold too, but he also had some help from being in Stranger Things and them donning the OG Ghostbusters uniforms.  There were so many easter eggs I have to go watch 1 and 2 again to refresh my memory --I should have done it before going to see this one.
