    Sry Hallryu yea you were right that 2011 is a prequel. I just watched the original again and it does "end" where this original starts..

    But this prequel has a lot of the flashes from original - way to much imo.

    Kaleid and others said in part 1 of this thread that "The Devil's Double is very good" or something like that.

    I'd just like to add that it's the best film I've seen this year!

    Some controversy over it's legitimacy - no actual proof to back up the claims of the person who it's based on - but who cares?

    It's BRILLIANT!!!

    Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol

    Will it entertaining? Probably
    Will it be predictable? Most certainly

    I appreciate and understand the need to only release films which have some semblance of recognition with the mainstream audiences - but srsly: Tom Cruise?

    He's old.
    He's not that great an actor.
    He's short.
    He's self obsessed.
    He's old.

    I totally admit that I'd like to look as good as he does at his age, but; c'mon - get some new blood in this series.

    There's gotta be some new blood out there that would:

    Out-act Tom Cruise.
    Stand taller than Tom Cruise.
    Not try and be the centre of attention.
    Look young and vibrant.

    You may feel this is anti-Tom, but it's not - I believed he was good in 'Collateral', but you need to realise it was only because he was suitable for the role.

    What makes MI work is having a young and confident agent that gets thrown into a situation out of their control, and above their internal perception of capability.
    The character should then dig deep into their character, overcome the situation and save the frickin' day. They learn about themselves; we learn about them and their environment of espionage. They grow, we grow.

    What this film will be is most likely as described by Sean Ambrose in MI:II;

    Ambrose

    If you look at Hunt's operational history, he invariably favors misdirection and deception. For a start he won't go into Biocyte from the ground where he has to risk confrontation with security. No, Hunt will prefer to engage in some sort of acrobatic insanity to enter Biocyte somewhere through the atrium where security is minimal...Ethan does it the hard way to avoid confrontation. Neutralizing security guards is simply too distasteful to him...

    Popcorn-fare...

    Tom Cruise is the only reason i'm even bothering to watch the new Mission Impossible movie.

    He is slightly crazy and does stunts that no other actor like him would even dream of attempting, and that alone make it more believeable, and not like there is a decent young alternative since there are no young action stars who are any good, so we would end up with crap people like Shia Labeouf or Chris Evans.

    Hollywood is choc-full of young actors ready and able to star in a leading role - it's just that no one has the balls to do it.

    The situation is completely understandable; we are talking about millions of dollars here. Millions.

    The people that invest in movies need to have a return on their investment - you would too, if you were being asked to invest $250 million into a film. Heck, even if someone asked you to invest $1 million into a film, you'd have reservations, right?

    Sad thing is, there are plenty of actors and actresses out there that could well be completely amazing - but we never here about them, just the ones that are 'bankable'.

    All about the $...

    Ever noticed that they havent made a single DECENT movie based on a video game?

    There a lots of games with awesome stories out there and they just wouldnt make movies out of them.

    I recommend Tears of the sun if you can take a harsh movie - Good but also shocking.

    Recently saw The Inbetweeners movie, good but expected it to be more outrageous.

    I really liked Chris Pine in Star Trek. Don't know why they don't caste him that much.

    Yeah, he was ok, i just prefer action stars to be abit older, find it easier to take them serious, especially when most Hollywood actor look a good 10 years younger than they really are.

    Since i'm being forced to watch Xmas movies by my GF, this was last nights choice.

    Santa Claus: The Movie - 1985 - 5/10

    Obviously a kids movie, but still not as good as i remember it, and definitely won't end up alongside other holiday classics which i loved when i was a kid, and still do now.
    Special effects held up better than i expected, but the story didn't.
