5.0 out of 5 stars This Blu-Ray has the Midas touch
'Goldfinger' is one of my favourite movies and was the first DVD disc I ever played. I put off buying a Blu-ray player until 'Goldfinger' was available on that format. So, putting that disc into my brand new Panasonic DMP-BD35 player was a much anticipated event, fraught with the possibility of either fulfilment or of bitter disappointment.
Fortunately, I was served...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good But No Classic
I have always had a bit of a problem with this film. I have never regarded it as the classic, iconic Bond film that a lot of fans seem to think it is, it is very slow in places with very little action and is extremely over-rated. It was also, in my opinion, the first of the "silly" Bond films, where the gadgets were starting to creep in more and there was less reliance...

3.0 out of 5 stars The first parody-worthy Bond film, 23 Oct. 2011

As great a Bond as Sean Connery is, his coolness in this film is rather overshadowed by the ludicrousness of the plot. There seem to be fewer notable moments for him and more notable moments for the ridiculous villain. Also, this is the first Bond film which features the kind of corny lines that Austin Powers parodied, such as him electrocuting someone and then saying "shocking". He also seems a bit less smooth than in the previous films. There's nothing exactly wrong with slapping a woman's bum as she walks away, but anybody can do that and you expect a little bit better from the man who's supposed to be the coolest man in the world. I've already mentioned the villain, and for me, he seemed more absurd than intimidating from the start. Being so obsessed with gold that you feel the need to paint a murder victim with gold paint is just a little bit odd, and his ultimate plan (which I won't spoil for you) perfectly fits the phrase from Austin Powers of being "overly elaborate". I'm not even particularly sure it would work economically, but I won't bother trying to debate that. Overall, this is the first film in the Bond series which I would consider just okay, and nothing to write home about. Yes, Bond is still pretty cool in it, but no cooler than he was in his two previous films, and those had plots which didn't make suspension of disbelief almost impossible.
