    Star Wars Episode IX (December 2019)

    I'm going to close this topic, lads

    Spider-Man: Far from Home (Homecoming sequel)

    Absolutely. Tony Stark and Steve Rodgers though? I'm betting not.

    Ok. I was half wrong.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    That's why I chose that imagery! Having done all he needs to on this plane, Cruise hops into the volcano and becomes one with Xenu or whatever the fuck his names is. Plus he avoids being questioned on the (alleged) disappearance of Miscavage's wife... Talking business vs art for a second...it was a no-brainer that there would be another M:I film after the Box Office of the last couple. While it's surprising to see McQuarrie commit to two films, to me, it can only mean that this is the end of the franchise with Cruise and these will be the swansong for this M:I crew. Will the studio attempt to keep it going with new stars and a new director in 2025? Probably but this feels like it's drawing a line under the last 20+ years (!!!!) and it'll be goodbye to Ethan and Co. Tbh, I liked 'Fallout' but it really did feel like it was treading water in a lot of places and some of the big stunts (the HALO jump & the helicopter chase at the end), while obviously insanely dangerous in real life, were quite boring - or to be more charitable, were not thrilling - to watch. My wife commented on the HALO jump, as I explained that it was done for real, that it didn't matter, as the addition of CGI Paris below and the lightning strike/last second pull of the cord made it all look like it had been shot in the studio. The most thrilling part of the film was the Toilet fight because it felt so *real*, which is absurd because it's essentially a rehearsed dance. But that's showbiz, baby! Anyway, I've lost my own thread. Basically, I want the McQuarrie of 'Jack Reacher' to come back and deliver a more low-stake, visceral style of M:I; I don't want Cruise in Space or Ethan Hunt trying to stop the CERN reactor from creating a black hole. And for the record, nothing in the entire series tops De Palma's 'Pentagon Heist'. A guy on a wire breaking into a vault. Still the best thing M:I's done.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    Yep; that’s my thinking. Big cliffhanger ending in the 1st and end the 2nd with Cruise literally jumping into a volcano. Not as a stunt, I mean in real life.

    Billy Connolly: Made in Scotland

    I told my 10 year old nephew the 'killed my wife/why have you buried her with her bum above ground' joke and he nearly died from laughing so much. I've heard that he then spread the joke around his class at school. I'll always be grateful to BC for that.
  7. Same. I'm sure there will be a recap vid of 15mins or so on Youtube before this starts. I'm struggling to remember what happened last season beyond Jon & Dany hooking up, the dragon thing at the end, the Wall and Jorah's Leprosy being cured.

    Oldboy Remake - Spike Lee directs Josh Brolin

    I can't remember anything about this film so it's surprising to see 2014 Me had time to see it and write a lengthy review of it.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 - Single Player, NO SPOILERS thread

    You can however get ass-less chaps which is, imo, far sexier. EDIT: In-game, that is. We all have them in real life I'm sure.

    Are you also pulling ‘up’ on the rod when reeling him in? @K It speeds the whole thing up slightly but tbh the whole legendary fish tasks are a chore. I wouldn’t bother.
