I just watched Red October again. It's a great film. A little slower than some other subhunt films like U-571 or Crimson Tide. But Sean Connery is awesome. I was wondering how good I'd look with a beard while watching that?
It's funny, but the Cold War is drifting into our "ancient past" with time now. I mean most of that era took place before I was born and up through the time I was just a kid: 1945-1990 (or thereabouts) - with Korea and Vietnam sort of falling in there, but pretty much all before I was born.
Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin did pretty good in the movie as the young Jack Ryan. Later Harrison Ford would really make this role his own.
What did you think of The Hunt for Red October?
