Ultimate DVD #05
Film Review's Ultimate
Bond movies are not enough
Is it not enough that Special Agent James Bond has to scale buildings, drive cars underwater and eliminate the bad guys while still maintaining his unmistakable savoir-faire?
Well MGM, the guys in charge of the imminent release of the first and latest Bond adventures, Dr No and The World is Not Enough, certainly dont think so as the Bond discs will include a wealth of extra content. Dr No, for instance, comes with a superb documentary entitled Inside Dr No which details not only the making of the movie but also the build-up to transferring Bond to the screen (did you know that Roger Moore was originally asked to play the part but couldnt due to TV obligations?) full of interviews with all involved.
The BBCs Omnibus on Ian Fleming also presides as does a Dr No featurette, the US and UK theatrical trailers (narrated by Sean Connery), TV and radio adverts, production designs and sketches and a stills gallery.

Dreamworks join the party
If you Region 2 buyers were wondering where Spielbergs production house Dreamworks SKG were when it came to our favourite circular bundles of fun, then wonder no longer.
Rumours abound that not only will Saving Private Ryan be arriving on UK shores soon, but so will its compatriots Antz and Small Soldiers. Although a distribution outlet has yet to be determined (Warner and Fox are apparently in the running) it looks as if these top titles could be coming your way with a lovely anamorphic transfer and equally yummy DD 5.1 soundtrack.
