Sure it was short, sure it featured little plot and some strange action sequences (personal fighter with machine guns being outmaneuvered by a locomotive sized prop driven cargo plane anyone?) but hey it’s Bond and features the hotter then lava Olga Kurylenko and delectable Gemma Arterton as Strawberry Fields. Seriously, who could turn down a girl named that? It’s Quantum of Solace and it’s headed to DVD and Blu Ray at the end of this March from our friends over at Sony Home Entertainment.

Debuting On Blu-ray Disc and DVD Worldwide March 2009
