Although it is probably a strong point of contention, I rate The World is Not Enough as Brosnan's most archetypal movie as Bond, really where he hit his stride and had the potential to then develop the role. Whilst not a strikingly different Bond, he did well to embrace the best of all of the cinematic portrayals and could have probably continued on in the position were it not for that Die Another Day debacle. On Blu-ray this now ten-year-old release looks solid and sounds pretty good and comes with all the previous special edition DVD's extras (although nothing to utilise Blu-ray's High Definition capabilities). In my opinion this is the most classically Bondian tale from Brosnan, so comes recommended to newcomers who want to explore the previous portrayals, although fans of Craig's Bourne-esque Bond (who I still enjoy) will probably hate this trademark instalment.
