    One of the most compelling alternate present fiction series I have ever seen. Very high quality writing, acting and well produced - hard to find though. It was aired here over christmas on scifi. I've heard that ABC bought rights to it, but you know it is going to be totally dumbed down and shot in studios in that American way.

    New MI Trailer dropped today:


    Tom Cruise actually hung off an Airbus A400M in a full tailored suit while the aircraft flew over the UK.

    That Trailer for Mission Impossible looked pretty tight!! you gotta respect Tom Cruise for the stunt work, I was totally blown away by that Last movie of his I watched "The Edge of Tomorrow" one of the best I've ever seen.

    Sooo no one talking about Furious 7... I went to the screening last week.. and boy it was over the top Ridiculous, so many terrible one liners and scene that put the Expendables to shame.. I think its the worst so far. But i will be going to watch the next ones im sure. I did however enjoy the camera work during the fights scenes.

    I have heard this from a few people, notably Howard Stern was talking about it a lot. I think I'll have to check it out.

    The problem is that I like to watch tv shows 4-5 seasons at a time.

    I saw furious7 on the first day.
    Knowing all the problem they had to overcome, and the fact that they dedicated it "FOR PAUL" made me appreciate it for what its worth...

    And yes, they had some super cheese for sure.. But it seemed like they were bringing it back to FNF original style. Car movie with action... Instead of action movie with cars.

    I thought it was cool how they made it circle back to the beginning, by referencing the other movies. Obvly there were some gaps that had to be filled. I noticed the fight scenes and the ending were likely using cody because they shot them from the back, or youd only see legs an arms flying not pauls face... Then the ending looked very digitized.

    But i enjoyed it for what it was cuz its FNF... It is what it is. 4/5 from me

    And for anyone who hasnt started watching scorpion... Check it out..
    Sciencey stuff - action - cars.. And based on true events of walter o brian

    2 episodes into the Netflix Daredevil series. Forget the awful Ben Affleck movie. This is gritty badass comic storytelling, very dark; I love it. This is what good TV can be.

    I may be watching all of season 1 before the weekend.

    I watched the TV series (yes, from the 60's show, but probably caught most of them in syndication reruns) back when I was a kid and loved it. Two very good lead actors doing the cool spy routine. Guy Ritchie should make that interesting.
