The last of the EON productions featuring Sean Connery, he's still not as old as Roger Moore was when he first started. Connery sticks to his usual business: kicking ass and throwing out one-liners. The movie wants to take itself seriously at times, but then it suddenly dives into late-sixties/early-seventies camp. spoiler There are stronger movies in the franchise for sure, but the spoiler is truly worth the price of admission. I consider Never Say Never Again to be the last in this series, so jump straight to this if you're dying to see Connery as 007 again.

This is the proper 007 movie list. NSNA is on it.

This is a badass and influential action movie for people who aren't necessarily into the whole anime scene. Lots of action and a decent subplot. Animation is superb.

Incredible documentary about the Bill Clinton campaign. Has to be one of the greatest political documentaries ever.

This is not particularly great, tries too hard at times, but there's lots of boobies so whatever.

Glad to be the first one to comment on this in English. Most of the movie was funny in a Borat way, but some was downright messed up (an entire family dying?). It's a good one-time watch... in the background if you're doing something.

Is it animal abuse if one animal is doing it to another?

@StigAnder I suppose we don't really have a right to say whether or not something should be on this list. It is a measure of what registered users at IMDb want, the voice of the Internet with an American POV. You don't need to have seen 500 movies to get to vote on this -- anyone is allowed. That said, I am looking for other lists to follow, and Ebert's seems to be a great one.

As long as Hoop Dreams is off and Zeitgeist is on, this will remain a terrible list.

Citizen Kane should be in the top ten, but good list.

If you are making a musical in this day and age, this should be required viewing.

The main character is so unlikable, and the political connotations are over the top.

This is a funny movie. Better than his 8 1/2 Bob Dylan piece.

Doesn't do the whole crossover into Ellis' universe, but it picks the finer points up for the character and plot. Bale's acting is top notch, though. If you are squeamish or a feminist, you should probably just skip it.

Definitely an important movie, but I don't agree that it was simply random. Important for modernism and futurism I'd say. On Wikipedia, someone compares this to Ulysses (Joyce), which is apt.

One of my favorite movies. Can't believe it is not on more lists.

Thought that this was beautifully shot, but the ending was disappointing. I can see why it had its influence on other works, though.
