I grew up watching Ray Harryhausen films; much better.   :thumbsup:

Don't get me wrong, I loved the Harryhausen films as well but the cheesiness of the Godzilla/Mothra/whatever the hell the turtle was called movies always appealed to me.
Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

MI6 Fallout

Could be the best yet of the Mission Impossible franchise.  Even if you don't like Cruise the film just works all the way through.  Pacey, witty, very good action and a fair old yarn of a plot.  Cruise is as ever just right for that role and the supporting cast esp Cavill, Pegg, Kirby and Rhames excellent as well

If you only want cerebral films it's not for you, otherwise go see
Well, whatever nevermind

Was curious about this film when it was first announced, right up to the point where I found out that they had got rid of Henry Coxwell (a record breaking balloonist at the time who was on the actual balloon flight with Glaisher and was instrumental in averting a catastrophe mid flight by releasing a trapped valve when the balloon ascended so high up that they began to pass out) and replaced him with some random female character instead.

I'm starting to think they should have an irony category in the Oscars for films like this...

The new trailer has been released. Misty I think this will end up being a 6 voddymelon film (just to torture BM and Apey like...  whistle: )
