1. From Russia With Love
2. Goldfinger
3. You Only Live Twice (One of the best themes in the series, and that fight scene on the Docks was something I had not seen in a movie before, when the camera pulls back and you see the whole roof with bad guys coming out left and right. John Barry's music fights that scene like a glove)
4. Never Say Never Again (Not official Bond)
5. Thunderball
6. Dr. No
7. Diamonds Are Forever (The over the top campness did not fit with Connery's Bond, not sure it would have fit Moore's bond either)

For me YOLT is by some distance the best Bond film. Great storyline and visuals, topped by 'Little Nelly', still may all time favourite Bond gadget. No CGI stuff.

The Edge: Amazon Prime HD. I had seen this film a couple of times before and rather surprisingly, it has grown on me. Unusual combination of survivalist and love triangle film with some great cinematography. Baldwin is excellent and despite frequent hamming, Hopkins is good too. Certainly watchable and interesting. 7.5/10

The Other Son: Cohen Collection BD. A French film set in contemporary Israel about 2 baby boys, one Jewish and the other Moslem, accidentally switched at birth and the issue not discovered till both are 18 years old. It is all about how the two families, both moderate, and the boys themselves handle the situation. Excellently made and well acted by all concerned, the turbulent atmosphere in a ideologically divided set-up makes fascinating viewing. The ending dialogue is superb and captures the spirit of the entire film. 9/10

Like Father, Like Son: Arrow Academy BD. Similarly themed but vastly different in set-up to The Other Son, this is from Japanese director Kore-Eda. Beautifully photographed, well acted and directed, it captures the conflicting emotions of the two families - one upper crust and the other working class - very well. While more poetic, this one lacks the harsh 'bigger picture' of the other film and so overall perhaps slightly less thought provoking. 8.5/10

The famous story about The Edge is that Baldwin turned up one day with the beard and refused to get rid off it.

That's probably the reason that they had to kill him off.

The invisible man (2020 one)

A different take on the film and Elisabeth moss is really good in the role and saves the film. A lot of the time, the film is bit unnerving. You never know with blumhouse horror films, they are either **** , ok to good. Also shocking the amount of money this film made against its budget. The man bad guy is a bit 1 dimensional, it would of been better if


Some major plot holes like the


Also some garbage film reviewers tried to turn the film into "feminist , man are ****, toxic men!!!", No, its really not- its just one person who is controlling, woman can be like that in a relationship, despite what these men" think.

2.5/5
