Bronson delivers his usual bad-ass-yet-wooden performance. It's like Death Wish but not nearly as good and too much male nudity.

Doesn't come close to the genius of the first but it actually delivers and is respectable for completely different reasons.

While it is an iconic 80s film it's not exactly my kind of entertainment. I will admit to appreciating some of the techniques more than I thought I would.

I loved this version as a kid, right up there with Mr. Magoo's version and at least competes with the Muppets' version

A strange entry into the 007 series. Connery comes back after 12 years for a less-than-stellar bond, Kirshner comes off of directing the best Star Wars film and is less than stellar, there is no typical intro and the theme song is less than stellar. If fact, nothing is stellar. But hey, it's still fun entertainment, perhaps a little silly, but entertaining.

Zelig (1983)
While the technique of having Allen spliced in with famous people in actual archive footage (11 years before 'Forrest Gump') the content and character was just not interesting enough to compare to how 'Forrest Gump' masterfully did.

Scorsese and De Niro are triumphant again in this drama about a comedian who isn't a comedian, only in his fantasies... or in crime.
