From Lower Ground

Here's a list of the James Bond films, the synopsis for each has been lifted from Wikipedia's list. Mine is here to remind me which ones I have in my media library and in what format. (Basically if it's not listed in BD, it's on my to-buy list eventually, if it says nothing under format, I don't have it at all)
