Agreed. I personally think it's the best of Connery's Bond films, although the general consensus seems to be Goldfinger.

According to the forum's very own James Bond poll, From Russia with Love wins the race.

3. From Russia With Love
4. Goldfinger
13. Dr.No

The Iceman

Really enjoyed this film, as with most good movies for me nowadays they come out of blue, no preconceptions. Excellent acting by Chris Evans, Ray Liotta, Winona Ryder but Michael Shannon steals the show with a cool representation of the real life Killer / hitman Richard Kuklinski, taking over 100 lives throughout his illustrious career.

Riveting throughout and highly recommended if you've not seen it.

movie, but the scenes that did feature 'the red stuff', were executed pretty
well by Bob Keen and his crew. I love what he did on Hellraiser (1987).
Candyman is a great horror movie, and on the HD format, is extremely
pleasing to the eye.
I quite liked 'Candyman', but when I read the source story - 'The Forbidden', it make it look a bit silly. One of Barker's best, an absolute masterpiece. I do like Virginia Madsen though...

I didn't think much of The Iceman. I watched it a couple of years after reading the book and thought the film was very slight, only really scratching the surface. The performances were fantastic and it was well made, I just thought it failed as a biopic.

There is some debate over how many people Kuklinski murdered, he apparently took 'credit' for killings committed by others and came across as unreliable during interviews.

He gave a series of interviews to HBO which they made in to a documentary, it used to be up on YouTube, it's well worth checking out.

The Bomber (2011), picked this one up at Poundland a while ago, it had a shiny cover which worked for me.

This film started life as a nearly seven hour long Russian mini-series (although that might well include ad breaks) and has been trimmed into a three hour film for export, although it is hard to tell and nothing seems to be missing.

This is a good old fashioned war story about three Russians struggling to survive after their plane is shot down over German lines in the Ukraine. Despite a couple of big scenes, this is a generally quite small scale production but always enjoyable and fans of old fashioned war films should find plenty to enjoy here.

It sounds a little like Das Boot in terms of the original production and nature of the subject (a microcosm of the war) is that a reasonable comparison?
