These movies are a combo of adventure and action and most movie geeks will know how powerful their plots and characters are. Hence, watching them will be a lot of fun.
Daniel Craig in Skyfall
1. Skyfall – the James Bond Daniel Craig classic tops our list of films that must be watched more than once. Sam Mendes brings Bond back to fast action life after the darker less commercial The Quantum Solace, which also made our list of more than once watching movies.
This second entry in the rebooted James Bond franchise proved a little too dark and ethereal for Bond fans, but it still pulled in enough box office to give us the instant classic Skyfall with Daniel Craig.
This was another classic James Bond film that kept audiences rapt for the franchise to keep spawning until it pretty much ran out of steam and creative ideas. That is, until the reboot with Daniel Craig came along.
Remember when Alec Baldwin was much smaller and less bloviating? Well if you check out The Hunt For Red October, you can remember that we once knew him more for his acting skills over his attacking photo journalists.
