    I must say, after watching part of a Bond disk last night I was appalled at the picture quality.
    I am projecting onto my wall about a 70" image, and at that size these films look baaaaddd.
    No wonder really considering they have about a 3-4mb bitrate.
    I also stuck on the Tomorrow Never Dies trailer, which looks spectacular, which oddly has a bit rate often hitting 9-10mb.

    Is there any plans to release a high bitrate Bond series?

    They will all be re-released late 2005 but from what i gather they will still have lots of extra's on them so who knows if this will affect the picture quality but i think theyre look delicious.

    Oh no, they are anything but delicious...
    It depends what size screen you have, on my 24" TV they look just OK, but when blown up to 70" odd inches, they look terrible.
    If you want to see how good a Bond film could look check out the full theatrical trailer on the R1 Tommorow Never Dies SE - spectacular.

    I think you misunderstood me, i meant the new ones when released late 2005 will look delicious, check out this link it gives you more information but basically they are doing work on them and sprucing up the old soundtracks too ( purists will still get the mono track )

    Oh right, my mistake...
    Well if they still have over an hours worth of documentaries then you can be assured of a low bitrate film.
    Why not just have each film decked out with 2 disk editions?
    One disk for the film, the second for the extras?

    It does say though that they will all be new transfers so they could still be better than they are at the moment, even if the bitrate doesn't dramatically improve.

    Possible. I noticed while watching one of (MGMs) Pink Panther films, the bitrate always hung around the 8-9 marks.
