The Pacino version was a remake so a new remake doesn't bother me.

Excellent teaser trailer, don't think I'll watch any more after that. I thought MI4 was the best since the first and I now have high hopes for this :)

Loving the look of MI5. Re-watched MI4 recently, brilliant entry in the series, same with 3.

Good to see Hunt back on a motorbike. :datass:

Holy gooseberry fool, MI5 is directed by the guy who wrote Edge of Tomorrow and directed Jack Reacher. I'm excited, I loved 3 and 4.

It's amazing how long the series has been going on for, in the first film there's a whole sequence of Ethan searching Usenet groups

Usenet, Jesus. :lol:

There's also a scene near the end of the first one where the screen in the background shows Premiership Champions Blackburn Rovers' 2-1 result against the Villa, IIRC. :lol:

Is MI2 worth a look? I wasn't a fan of the first one, but saw some of the recent ones with Simon Pegg and they were brilliant. Not sure if I've seen 3.

We recently rewatched 1, 3 and 4 and loved them. My girlfriend asked why we've never watched 2 and I said that it was mostly awful. But I couldnt really remember exactly how and why.

Then, funnily enough, it was on tv the next week and I remembered EXACTLY why it was so shitty. It feels like over-directed 90s trash. One scene has Ethan and a girl spinning together in slow motion, in cars, in Spain, to Flamenco music, with feintly erotic draws of breath every time they catch eyes with their hair spinning around their faces....

It's awful.

There's got to be a good drinking game in 2 somewhere.

The second film is dire. Isn't that the one where Ethan is riding a motorbike, he's being shot at so he hops onto the side of the bike, shoes dragging in the dirt, the takes one hand off the handle bars, pulls out a gun and starts shooting back?! :slol: :slol: :slol:

And which was the film where it had him and some woman walking towards the camera, laughing and smiling and there's a group of people in the background clapping, whooping and hollering!!! So cringe worthy!!!

I think you might be talking about the very end of 3, there.

I personally love the two bikes in 2 near the end driving towards each other, Ethan and the other guy jump at each other off the bikes, that then explode, they somehow land on a beach then fight. Brilliant.

The only bit of 2 I've seen is the ending and the beach fight and I have no intention to change this, it's too perfect

If it wasn't for MI2, we will never have this amazing gif:
