I agree about Connery's Performance in YOLT ajb007/martini

I was watching closely and with high definition to see if I could catch an occasional blank stare or a non-reaction to another actor, and it just never happened. Sure, he's a tad less physically lively during scenes where he's walking, but that could just be that he was naturally getting older... IMO he delivered an impressive & professional performance. I think many who slate him for his so called phone in are just a bit too familiar with the behind the scenes stuff and are translating that to the movie itself.

Dalton & Connery rule. Brozz was cool. Craig is too.

Re: Bond Bluray Film Club

Also love Connery's performance in YOLT. Never got the whole Boredom thing. Seemed like an overblown leap after the mishaps with the Japanese media.

Re: Bond Bluray Film Club

Connery got to play with lots of Japanese Girls, who are undoubtedly some of the prettiest on Earth  ajb007/martini

Re: Bond Bluray Film Club

What I really enjoy with YOLT is Barry's score.
Though the main theme is quite romantic (and very asian), the sharp short and serious tunes during the movie make it very special.

IMO the most serious tune - though Moonraker is my absolute favorite Barry score.
Will watch YOLT over the weekend.

Re: Bond Bluray Film Club

So, in terms of franchises I have 4 Bond movies now in Blu Ray, two from Star Trek, the three Robocops (it was a set or it would only be 2), and none from Star Wars or Indy. I guess I know what my actual favourite franchise is then, eh? ajb007/lol

QOS may be my next BR purchase.
