My Natalie Portman fetish aside, V for Vendetta is a good film!

If you can source this, it has a great ending: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0124198/

The name 'Evil Things' made me think of it.

Edit: Just seen a trailer for 'Killer Elite'. Probably nothing more that a good action flick, but look at the cast: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1448755/

Yvonne Strahovski, (the butt-kicking blonde in 'Chuck'), oh and Robert De Niro, Clive Owen and Jason Statham.

Dr No was fantastic, so well remastered it looked like a film made a few years ago set in the 60's rather than a film actually made in the 60's.

I know you shouldn't have cheese before bedtime, but we're now watching Roger Moore in Live and Let Die (mmmmmm Jane Seymour *rubs thighs*), again it looks fantastic in HD.

Yes! Definitely a late night not ready for bed movie, bit like Silent Running.
Really liked the plot of Moon.

James Bond in HD. Hmm, sounds interesting! Cheese aside, they had their moments...not to mention the likes of Britt Eckland and, as you mentioned, Jane Fonda. The only movies that had a better collection of lead female stars were Hitchcocks own films!

I liked it. Films like that with atmosphere, (pardon the pun), and subtlety are few and far between these days. Reminds me of Kubricks classic, 2001 A Space Odyssey. (Although not as monumental). Another pun...sorry



Ok, it's a monolith, but monument is close enough!

Jane Fonda? Never a Bond girl, but now you've got me thinking of Barbarella....
