Mission Impossible 6 pre-release
#71
AWhat made the Mission: Impossible series interesting to me was the variety of directors they would get for each instalment. I thought even with the worse one with John Woo, they all at least had their own unique style to them.

It’s why I actually don’t like that Chris McQuarrie is returning as director. They fucked up the one unique thing about this series.

See also Alien series.

I would agree with you if McQuarrie wasn't the bee's knees.



Fuck it. Might re-watch Way Of The Gun this weekend.

AHe is. But again, find the next bee’s knees.

McQuarrie’s got tons of other stuff in him, I’m sure.

Loose continuity, differing visual style and action with a switch back and forth between long hair and short hair Tom Cruise is what this series is all about.

Agreed.  McQuarrie knocked RN out of the park and he also made the first JACK REACHER film into something that was much, much better than it had any right to be.  He seems dialed in on what makes a Tom Cruise movie work.

And yeah, the motorcycle chase in RN is amazing.  McQuarrie does a good job of keeping up the sense of wild speed which is absolutely essential to any sort of chase sequence.

hahaha the quantum opera scene?



woof, what a shitty sequence outside of the fun moment Bond brings out the quantum members



FALLOUT ends up sounding more like the subtitle for a tie-in video game for Mission Impossible.  Aw, I kinda liked the cheesy titles like Ghost Protocol and Rogue Nation.  Oh well.

just plain awful



a non-sequence when Bond escapes from the theater... in which Forster tries to go all arty again by playing it silent and erratic and fails miserably



he's no Woo

I was so excited for it too...

Better than Spectre.

#83

heh, I wasn't even particularly looking forward to SPECTRE the way I did with Quantum as a followup to Casino Royale



so that one didn't offend me



I watched that one more like I watched Crystal Skull or something... walking out of it shrugging "well that's that then"



some of the more leisurely modern action sequences!  hahahaha so relaxing!




to be fair, QUANTUM looks amazing as does Craig in it!

I thought he played a fun creep!



too bad the movie gave him so little to do



I DO enjoy that last moment between him and Bond in the desert and a can of oil.

AThe love child of Peter Lorre and Roman Polanski... One of the best all-time Bond kills, though, I will give the character that.

I'll go down in flames as the QOS defender.  That thing has seriously improved with subsequent viewings to the point that it's one of my favorites.

Reply

I like QOS (then again, I like all the Bond films except two or three), but Greene is a nothing character with a terribly uninteresting villainous scheme.  Amalric comes through unscathed because he's got a weird, fun energy, but his character is among the lower-tier Bond villains.

I'm more excited that Sean Harris is returning, not only because I really like that actor's work, but because this series has never had a returning villain before and I'm interested to see what happens with him (will he be a throwaway character in the opening scenes - ala Blofeld in For Your Eyes Only - or will he play a significant part in the rest of the movie?)

Reply

I agree, I'm looking forward to the return of that reptilian, chilly villain, so well-realized by McQuarrie and Sean Harris.

I wonder whether we might get a repurposed version of this scene described by McQuarrie:



Quote:

My one regret is there is one real showcase scene with Sean and it didn’t make it into the finished film. Ironically, it was the scene that enticed Sean to do the movie in the first place. For a lot of reasons we ended up cutting it from the film. To his credit, Sean saw the finished film and was very understanding of it. Sean is a real pro, someone who came in with an apprehension of what kind of movie it was, the tone, and what the film was asking him to do. He tackled the role despite it being more or less against his religion.


I just want to know what was so great about it, that it enticed Harris to take the role in the first place!



ETA:



Also, how many times will he use the word "please" in this sequel??



Reply
#99

I thought the role was a one-off thing for Harris. Wasn't there an interview where he said that he doesn't want to be in a sequel?

Reply

Yeah, he didn't want to be in a Hollywood blockbuster but McQuarrie convinced him to take the role in Rogue Nation. I guess he must have enjoyed working with McQuarrie to come back again.

Reply
AYeah, I remember something like that. Like he talked down about franchise films.

I guess money talks.

Anyway i can't wait to see the trailer coming this Sunday.

I'm eagerly awaiting Henry Cavill's moustache. It was hidden from me in Justice League, and I've seen stills of it, but now I get to see it in motion!

Reply
AI think they should reshoot all his scenes without the stache, or remove it digitally, just to screw with WB.
Reply
AAnd yeah, McQuarrie said in an interview that Harris specifically asked to be killed off in RN so he wouldn't have to appear in any sequel-- which is funny because there had never been a returning villain anyway. But McQuarrie conceived that ending close to the last minute, apologized to Harris, and here he is in the sequel. D'oh.
