    'The Untouchables' and 'Hot Fuzz' are great picks. I've (sadly) never seen 'The Hunt for Red October.'

    For Brosnan, I'd add, well, 90% of his Filmography, but favorites? 'The Tailor of Panama,' 'The Matador,' 'The Thomas Crown Affair,' 'Seraphim Falls,' and 'Married Life.'

    For Craig, 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,' and my favorite out of all of these, 'Munich.'

    The Hunt for Red October definitely worth a look if you have not watched, great performances from Connery and Baldwin.

    I have Munich had it for some time, never got round to watching it as yet. Tailor of Panama, is that with Rush and Curtis, certainly one of Brosnans better films from what i remember of the movie.

    @fire_and_ice, that's the one. Like I said earlier in a different thread, probably my favorite non-Bond film of Brosnan's.

    And you really need to get around to watching 'Munich.' It's my favorite film of all time.

    I am admittedly not the biggest Brosnan fan, though do remember thinking that i thought he was good in Tailor of Panama. Got tomorrow night off will make a point of Watching Munich.

    @fire_and_ice, let me know what you think. Craig doesn't have the largest role in it - Eric Bana stars, and I feel the bigger supporting character is Ciaran Hinds - but he's still a part of the team that Bana assembles. Excellent work.

    Got it on dvd, though may pop into town and see if i can pick it up on bluray, occurred to me probably one of the few Spielberg movies i have not watched. No doubt it will be visually stunning. Will let you know what i think mate.

    @fire_and_ice, you're stuck with DVD, as Spielberg has yet to release it on blu-ray. Shame, I know, and I heavily anticipate the day he decides to do so.

    Totally forgot about 'Defiance,' and yes, an amazing film. Very, very underrated, and it's always an enjoyable watch.

    As a Jew, it's a film that makes me very proud. Craig is terrific in it.

    Yes, he is. Gives me a 'Band of Brothers' vibe, how they go from scattered and worried, building up confidence, narrowly surviving winter, etc. It's really a wonderful little gem.

    It's brilliant but it was a TV series, are we allowed to pick that?

    Good to see some love for Defiance. :) It's one of my faves. It's actually on tv here tonight and I recommended it to friends and suspect I may have to watch it myself as well despite owning the dvd.

    People really like lists here, I've noticed... :P

    That is a shame, i am becoming a bit of a bluray snob :-) Unfortunately had to go into work, not had chance to watch it yet.

    Excellent film, excellent ensemble cast. Genuinely dark and sinister movie, arguably the best film adaption of Christies storys.

    Can't believe I forgot The Offence. Along with The Hill probably Sean's best performances as an actor rather than just playing himself.

    I watched The Rocketeer last night on a streaming service. Hadn't seen it in years. I'd forgotten how great TD is in it. Looks like he's having the time of his life. Typically, it's being shown on channel 5 this weekend coming. If you haven't seen it, definitely worth a look.
