Love all of the Prophecy films, all 3 of them and Christopher is best to me in the Deer hunter. Al Pacino great also, best in Scent of a Woman. There are plenty of greats, think Anthony Hopkins, Richard Burton, Sean Connery, Sir Ben Kingsley and many many more Kieth! 
A new rising star to me is  Benedict Cumberbatch, a future Bond, excellent actor

Connery is just a bald Scot who is always a bald Scot, even when he is playing a Russian submarine commander. 


Liev Schriber is a damn good actor.

Connery is a fine actor, who is adored by many, so you also have a thing about bald people, is there anything you do not discriminate against?

I said he was bald as an adjective, I didn't discriminate on this, just on his crap skills and inability to hide his accent.

Women seem to love him even though he is bald, why mention he is bald or that h is a Scot. Well he is loved by many, you may want to take a leaf out of his book and learn something!

Because whatever part he plays....he never disguises himself...always bald and a Scot.

Enjoy your day

Clearly that seems in error also:

Morning Nicko

Completely agree Nicko, though Daniel Craig does make a different kind of Bond, which I also enjoy loads, more realistic

I think it's because connery was the first bond that people became fixated on him,  if that makes sense.

I liked Dalton and Brosnan, but Craig is very good.  Couldn't stand Dench though...another actress who can only be Judy Dench; glad she fell at Skyfall.

I would disagree, I think Daniel Craig has been the most realistic bond from the books.
Connery was good enough for the 60's, but the reboot of the series is far better than any of the original bond movies.

Yes and hence why he has been cast in so many films dean, up to you if you don't like him, think he was brilliant "in the man who would be king" and "Highlander" and many more

he was very good in that, but and probably less sean connery than in most. But Michael caine outshone him there.

Being good box office does not automatically equate to being a good actor.

HE is up there with the likes of Arnie in my view. Good at what he does, but no one would cast him outside his area.

Guess we will have to be to differ on this as I say I have many fav's Anthony Hopkins being one of them and others I stated before as I say the Bond for the future has to be Benedict Cumberbatch

I disagree. I didn't think of him as Sean Connery in The Untouchables - far better than Costner.

Connery was quite good in the untouchables  but the part was made for him.

Now, to prove that I am not homophobic I think that Gandalf (Ian McKellen) is superb.
