    I keep thinking that this movie came out months ago and I just never saw it...

    I guess it's because of the whole JL/Mustache issue.

    Gah, I hate to admit it because of the whole Tom Cruise thing, but it really does look pretty bad ass. I was already sold on the first trailer, but this reconfirmed it. Think it also may finally be the movie that changes my opinion of Henry Cavill from being indifferent to legitimately liking him.

    That was a great trailer. It was a good decision to bring back the villain from the last movie. He was easily the best antagonist in the series besides Philip Seymour Hoffman’s character. Henry Cavill looks like he is having fun playing a bad guy for once.

    It gives me an impression this will be a hardcore action flick better than the last time.
    If there's I could nitpick in the franchise is that all villains MI team beaten are "on their own" terrorist groups.
    I was hoping if all terrorist groups are just sub-groups under one big cell like what the Craig-led 007 films did.

    But nevertheless, I'm a fan of the series since the first film.
    There's something in the franchise that keeps me coming back and never tired of watching it no matter how "formulaic" it is.
    Just like what the Fast & Furious franchise did to me.
    You know what, these franchises keeps innovating and add something new that still piques the interest of the viewers.

    I did LOL at the one 'punch' the guy threw at Tom Cruise. It stopped several inches away from him.

    That’s how you film a fight scene. Give actors time to work on the choreography and don’t try to hide the fight with quick cuts and shaky camera work. The results almost always speak for themselves.

    Bourne films are shaky but I like their fight scenes. Quick but Hard.

    This is arguably Paramount's most successful franchise going back to the 90s. Yes, more than Transformers in some ways. (Actually probably in a lot of ways)

    Unlike a lot of other franchises (including Marvel), there's something about each instalment that is fresh and it isn't just the stunt work and the choreography of it. It feels very clear that each director coming onto the movies has a unique voice in executing what's on screen. Comparing Ghost Protocol to say MI 2 for example is pretty significant.

    And even though the same guy behind Rogue Nation is behind the camera again, I hope the impression I get from it is that the movie has actual consequences to an ongoing story and being more than just an action flick. After all it is subtitled, 'Fallout'.

    That's the main selling point for me. Rogue Nation was the only MI film other than the first that was any good, imo. MI 2-4 were all either way too predictable, too silly, or both. But kudos to Tom Cruise for sticking with it until they finally started to get it right again.

    Isn't Cruise getting too old for these? It was rather silly seeing him play the charming "young" scoundrel in the Mummy, too...
    Plus given how these guys routinely complete these super hard missions, they should totally rename the series Mission Very Likely.

    Tom Cruise, never really liked him in movies until he hit 50. And now he's awesome. So, no he isn't too old for these movies. He's just hit the right age. 50+ year old doing most of his own stunts. All because he just wants to. I've seen every major Tom Cruise action film since Jack Reacher to come out theatrically. Loved them all because of him. Including his Mummy film. His Mummy film was a blast. He was awesome, and so was Russell Crowe. Both were awesome. The rest of the movie was kind of shit. But they were awesome. Jack Reacher 1 and 2 were both awesome. Edge Of Tomorrow, American Made, and Oblivion are also very good films. Loved all three. Especially Edge of Tomorrow.

    Tom Cruise gets better with age.

    So curious to know your thoughts on movies like Minority Report, The Last Samurai, Risky Business and Magnolia now.

    Well the answer is, didn't really like them too much. Although, I do like Interview With A Vampire and Legend. Don't hate his movies before he hit 50, just didn't get excited for them, nor did I ever seek them out. It's only Legend and Interview With A Vampire, that I've actually seen multiple times. Never been a huge Top Gun fan. Always preferred Hot Shots, the parody. Love that movie.
