The Hunt for Red October (1990)

Sean Connery plays the captain of a Russian nuclear submarine, where everybody speaks in English with Russian accents. Skinny Alec Baldwin plays Harrison Ford and somehow gets on the submarine at some point. I think the captain wants to defect, but it isn't clear to anybody whether he actually is defecting, and a bad-guy Russian tries to kill him after deciding that, yes, that's exactly what he's doing. In the end, two submarines crash into each other due to Sean Connery's excellent submarine-driving skills, and Sean Connery gets a lakehouse. (In conclusion, what you do with a submarine is "drive" it.)

"We named the dog Indiana!"


  1. Yup - that seem about right to me. But it was all very suspenseful.

  2. "Skinny Alec Baldwin plays Harrison Ford." Priceless!
