And "MI3" (admittedly that wasn't that bad - way better than "Lost", but nothing like as good as MI2, not that I'm suggesting that John Woo *would* be an obvious choice for director).

Seriously? MI2 better than MI3?

Indeed. MI3 wasn't exactly a classic but MI2 blew. John Woo has got a serious slo-mo addiction, it's off-putting.

Yeah, I thought MI2 was a fabulous film and I generally don't like a lot of the Hollywood blockbusters.

I thought Tom Cruise looked very cool in it, great rock climbing, great bike/balet sequences, great baddy.

I also loved Face/Off. Probably JT's second best film.  He really does play an over the top baddy very well, as does NC - put them together with John Woo and you know what you're going to get... Smile

Yeah, doves.

Still at least there's one good thing to come out of all this... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-21243143 

 

 

And yes, that was an on-topic posting from me. I know, I'm scared too...

I disagree, I thought the last series of Fringe was poor to say the least and I think we need another Star Wars film like we all need a hole in the head. All these sequels,prequels and revisiting things shows Hollywood has run out of ideas. Money is now all that matters.

I think we needed the last three Star Wars like a hole in the head! Shock

I want to see another trilogy so I can erase the abomination of 1, 2 and 3......is it too much to ask?

EDIT- Oh and I actually gave my copy of MI2 away because I thought it was garbage, not saying that MI3 was great but really?
