I work with a lady who is really into tarot cards.  She says she consults them for guidance yet also says that there are simply for fun and there’s nothing behind them.  When I brought up the contradiction between those beliefs, she refused to face the facts.  Of course, that’s the basis of any of the beliefs we have.  Personally, I wouldn’t ever mess with that stuff.  I’m not sure what’s out there, but I’m pretty sure there’s some serious voodoo in the ether and I don’t want it coming my way.  Now there’s a movie out on a brand-new format which talks a little bit about tarot cards.

Starting this October 21st, now available on Blu-ray for the first time ever from MGM Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment comes the film series which introduced us to the hippest British agent of all time.  Live And Let Die is ready to burst our of your television screen in full high definition and with more special features than any high powered explosion could destroy.  Bring home this monumental cinematic moment today!

Roger Moore is James Bond and James Bond is on the case down in New Orleans.  He is trailing Dr. Kananga, also, we learn later on, known as Mr. Big.  Bond goes to an island in the Caribbean to Big’s hideout and discovers his secret weapon – a virgin tarot expert who is able to see the future named Solitaire.  Well, Bond does his thing and soon she can’t see the future, so it’s off to New Orleans to find out what Big is up to.  Turns out it’s two tons of heroin and Big has captured Bond and given him to the bogeyman to be killed.  Will the English hero escape?

The special features on this disc are unbelievable.  It has 1080p, lossless audio and smart menu technology.  There is an optional audio commentary with Sir Roger Moore, one with director Guy Hamilton, one with screenwriter Tom Mankiewicz, a lost documentary, a look at Roger Moore being James Bond, conceptual art for the film, an interactive guide into the world of Bond and this film, a featurette which takes you behind the scenes, being on the set with Roger Moore, an image database, theatrical trailers, television ads and radio spots.
Out of all the Bond movies, I have seen this one the most.  For whatever reason, it always seems to be on whenever I end up watching television.  This one is fun, especially the fantastic boat chase through the delta.  The special features are amazing and this film was totally made to be seen in HD.  The greatest part is seeing Jane Seymour in a movie, but when it’s this movie and it’s in 1080p, that’s enough to make me believe in heaven.  This film is fantastic.  Blu-ray was made for Bond.

You’ll Die to catch this film.

This Blu-ray title is available at Amazon.com.
