Sean Connery dead at 90
« on: October 31, 2020, 10:09:14 AM »
Who said you can only throw so many ones is a row? I could use a nat 20 in 2020.

He was my favorite actor. Sad to see him go.

Go on, sir Connery, go and fuck the prom queen in the skies.

Inverse from the Odyssey.  My dad when young looked a bit like him.  But I got none of his looks ;-)

He was certainly in my top 5, maybe top 2, but we are splitting hairs.  I don't mind celebrities dying, but I'll miss Connery, because all of his roles were so wonderfully convincing, except maybe James Bond, which is fantasy, but I still compare all the Bonds that followed him as not quite as good as the "real" James Bond.

Mr. Connery won a best-actor award from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts for “The Name of the Rose” (1986), in which he played a crime-solving medieval monk, and the Academy Award as best supporting actor for his performance as an honest cop on the corrupt Chicago police force in “The Untouchables” (1987).
What???!  The New York Times, or was it the Academy, left out his best film of all, one that is definitely in my top 5:  The Hunt for Red October.  Connor was incapable of not being the best actor for the role.  He was brilliant.

No one ever mentions Zardoz, for some reason...

Thread isn't gay enough.

I'll remember him in part for the roles he turned down. John Hammond in Jurrasic Park and Gandolf in The Lord of the Rings.

I didn't realize they used footage of John McCaine's screwups in that movie ;-)

My favorite was The Medicine Man, but it had a sad ending.

That would be bad casting. Maybe he knew it.

I never liked the man. I have no idea why. I've never enjoyed James Bond movies. But I liked Medicine Man and The Hunt for the Red October. He was OK as the senior Dr. Jones but that's probably because I love the movie. RIP
