James Bond vs. Grant: From Russia with Love

This is arguably the best fight scene of the entire James Bond franchise; even today it’s pretty brutal with these two men literally tearing strips off each other. No flashy judo or martial arts, just a desperate struggle...

There are no words for how much I love this movie; it is over the top in every way and the chemistry between Dolph Lundgren and Brandon Lee was immediately appealing. You’ve got quality villains, gratuitous violence and n...
