R.I.P. Sean Connery

The IMDb Poll Board Users are very sad to hear that Sir Sean Connery passed away on 10/31/2020. Our condolences go to his wife and his family. Before going into acting, Connery had many different jobs, such as milkman, lorry driver, laborer, and bodybuilder. At the age of 23 he had the chance to become a professional football player, but decided to join the movie business. For his success as an actor, he was knighted by Queen Elisabeth II on 06/05/2000 as a Knight Bachelor. He wore a traditional Scottish kilt at the ceremony. Most of his characters were sympathetic lead characters, like his signature role as the MI6 secret agent James Bond in the James Bond movies based on the books of Ian Fleming. Sean Connery was versatile and his range was wide: Once he played an environment scientist, another time played a submarine captain, and once a monk. His tremendously strong and charismatic personality impressed and entertained the audiences for decades. Which of his performances would you consider to be his strongest? Tell us here.

Little Big Guys

Jebediah Springfield once said "A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man". We can all say "Amen!" to that. Yet, as true as it is, this creed wasn't fully embraced by Hollywood where heightism seems to have prevailed for decades and decades, allowing only a few vertically challenged actors to portray heroic characters instead of the usual sidekicks, comic reliefs, or vile antagonists from the sneaky traitors to the villains with 'Napoleon Complex'. Celebrating the "little big guys" of cinema, which of these heroic characters played by actors under 5'8 is your favorite? After voting, you may discuss the list here (only male adult roles, characters over 20, and no member of a group or creatures of naturally small size)

Movie/TV Phrase Catchers

When they don't have a catchphrase of their own, some characters happen to inspire them. Indeed, a "phrase catcher" is someone whose sole presence is enough to inspire the same (or almost the same) verbal reaction among a various group of people. It works quite the same as a catchphrase except that the character doesn't say it but has it said about him... or her... or them. Which of these movie/TV phrase catchers is the most memorable? After voting you might discuss the list here To be included, the 'catchphrase' must come from different characters, at least two, throughout the movie or the TV series (so no "Shut the **** up, Donny") and shouldn't introduce or come after another catchphrase from the protagonist (so no "Hi, Dr. Nick!")
