"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."

The NY Jets football team here just hired another new coach, Adam Gase. The Jets have not been in the Super Bowl since 1969 :!: Maybe you can understand why now. :roll:

Director Christopher McQuarrie has signed on to helm two new installments in the blockbuster franchise, with the high-octane thrillers expected to hit theaters in the summers of 2021 and 2022.

The filmmaker, who directed the last two movies in the series, Rogue Nation and Fallout, is expected to shoot the upcoming films back to back to maximize production schedules and make sure the studio can release films in consecutive years, Variety reports.

McQuarrie himself teased the exciting news when he tweeted, "Missions: Accepted #MissionImpossible."

It's something to watch as they stopped making Bond movies.

Yesterday I watched the latest Johnny English movie. Really fun, Emma Thompson as a Prime Minister (quite an obvious dig at Theresa May ) is pure gold. Olga Kurylenko is far more engaged here than she was in QOS that's for sure.
I almost forgot, there's a jab at the expense of the nerdy Q as well. So there's that.
It's funny how this comedy actually managed to create a more concrete commentary on life in 21st century than Broccoli who desperately tries to do that for 13 years.

I honestly found November Man to be quite unpolished somehow. The story was there but I felt it could have been executed way better. Olga was fine in her role as was Brosnan. I felt they were better than the movie itself.

I agree with unpolished there are several points that are telegraphed what going to happen. But her role is exactly the same as QOS but makes sense this time. Brosnan cast Craig lite to be chase after him, which was t bad but had potential. The guy behind it was obvious to Jonny English , Craig’s bond will trying to solve this case for the next 5 movies

Sony is reviving several of its biggest franchises, after losing the distribution rights to the James Bond movies.

Sony already kill their new ghostbuster franchise, bad boys ? Who cares? Charlie angels? Why?
Just street? didn’t they just make two of those?
New mib looks doa even with good stars recreating Thor Ragnarok line per line

Really looks like the glory days of Sony are behind them the wreckage Amy pascal did to that studio left lasting scars although she has been rewarded very well with producer roles whe didn’t really earn or have a thing to do with making them a success.

Broccoli is allegedly hopeful that Daniel Craig will actually return for yet another movie. :roll: The Sun quotes an insider as saying she is "loyal to Daniel" for the time being, and doesn't want to be "disrespectful" by starting to look elsewhere. :roll: She "cannot look beyond Daniel”, according to the source, as “she values everything he has done for the franchise in the past decade”. :roll: -----------Cr-egg will be "couched" back for another film by Broccoli in 2022 as a quick 2 year turnaround. I think the next two films will be a 2 parter with Cr-egg doing the 60th anniversary film as well. Broccoli probably has the script being done now as well for 2022, just to be sure her 'patsy' returns quickly :!: She just cannot let him go, which is now a psychotic obsession for her :!:

Yes, well, better not be disrespectful to a man who said he'd rather slash his wrists than do another movie. Whopie! :clap:

Just more of her "a bride doesn't think about her next husband while walking down the isle" claptrap. The quote that stands out to me is: “she values everything he has done for the franchise in the past decade”, yes the way he begrudgingly returned time after time for his hefty pay check so he could sleep walk his way through films he couldn't care less about making should be commended!
