James Bond Blu-Ray Box Set Announced – ‘Bond 50’

Seriously, who do I need to kill to get my grubby hands on this bad boy collection of all the James Bond films on sparkling Blu-Ray? For the chance to watch all 22 Bond films (from Dr No to Quantum of Solace) with over 130 hours of bonus material, heck I’ll even work for SPECTRE! Yeah that’s right I said it, I went there.

Hmm on second thought, maybe not as they do have quite the track record in complaints to their HR department for gross misconduct by the management.

But what do you expect when your methods for disciplining your staff include, electrified chairs, a poisoned tip boot to the shin and feeding incompetent members of your staff to a hungry school of piranha fish? I mean seriously why would anyone work for SPECTRE? I mean the orange jumpsuits are snazzy I’ll give you that but come on?  Sorry I digress …ahem…James Bond on Blu-Ray coming soon and yes, I still plan to kill someone for this box set. No not you. Or you. But hmm…perhaps you.

*screws silencer onto Walther PPK*

Sorry mate this isn’t personal it’s just geekdom. If someone could now make a few silencer gunshot sounds that would be great thanks. Anyway enough off my rambling check out the awesome trailer below. If that doesn’t make you want to be James Bond then nothing will.
