So - instead of bemoaning the lack of trailers and incomplete set of deleted scenes (such a shame!), I thought people might like to flag up the 'Ooh, I didn't know that" moments.
For me, the changes to the airport sequence are fascinating. The changes made there really show the nature of the process. Dragging behind the tanker, diving across the wing of a plane as the vehicle passes underneath (both storyboarded), blowing it up with its trail of fuel, the potential ending of the bomber killing the guards that have Bond at gunpoint...fascinating.
Bonus points, too for including deleted scenes/shots within the documentary - it's great to see the dead bomber, the explosive being put in the fuel tank before the ending was changed, and the tanker ploughing through the underside of a plane.
I'm also pleased to see all three screenwriters on the crew commentary, and Wilson and Campbell discussing the writers' roles a little on theirs. It should help diffuse discussions that too easily attribute the whole thing to Haggis while rejecting Purvis and Wade.
So - what have you discovered from the new DVD?
