Blu-Ray Pick of the Week: "007: The Sean Connery Collection"

With Spectre being released soon, I'm recommending this classic Sean Connery collection of the original Bond films, the most iconic and probably the best, since it includes From Russia With Love and Goldfinger, on everyone's list of the greatest Bond films. Besides, Connery was the best- the definitive Bond, the one who molded the character forever in his own image. You could never not see some of what Connery brought to the character attempting to be replicated by every actor who followed him, and for good reason. The cool confidence, the ever so slight wink at the camera, the occasional flash of danger in his eyes- some of the later guys had more of one thing than the other, but he had all the elements at once, and that was because it was all just him, being himself on camera the way all the great screen stars do. Hell, even original 007 author Ian Fleming changed Bond's heritage to make him Scottish, after falling so hard for Sean Connery's portrayal of the man. You can't argue with that, right?
