James Bond, Sony’s unofficial marketing agent

As promised, here are my first ever Blu-ray screen captures. I decided to start with some of the absolute best the format had to offer (Open Season is, in my opinion, the single best-looking title on Blu-ray, but we no longer have a copy of that film), so it made sense to go with the excellent-looking Casino Royale, a title which showed that Sony had well and truly learned from their past encoding mistakes.

The actual process took me longer than I was anticipating - a combination of my laptop’s slow 5,400 RPM hard drive and the fact that I was attempting to install several Windows Updates in the background, while copying a substantial amount of data from one machine to another. I hope to follow this up with some shots of The Descent and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, the two other Blu-ray exclusives that I’ve seen which warrant 10/10 transfers, but I don’t have an ETA on them.
