On Her Majesty’s Secret Service – Ultimate Edition

OHMSS Ultimate Edition DVD Oh dear, another example of where remastering goes wrong.

Whilst like with all the Ultimate Editions, there is a general improvement in terms of clean up that would make the casual viewer impressed, just have a look at the differences that really go to spoil what should have been “Ultimate” editions as per their name.

Zeta Minor – James Bond Guide: OHMSS Ultimate Edition

Even with the cut scenes restored, the clean up and the surround track (though I’d prefer original mono as well*), the changes in colour and the score in crucial defining scenes of what is really the best Bond movie is just unforgivable for anything described as “ultimate”.

* – However it has been reported the R1 editions may have the mono tracks intact.
