Binged through the Mission: Impossible film franchise in the last week. They're all fantastic movies, but part of me kind of wants to see Tom Cruise/Ethan Hunt not doing anything insane in the next movie. It almost feels like they're doing their best to one-up themselves.

I feel like there's a not insignificant percentage of the audience who go see those films partly because they know Cruise is likely to do some big stunt and (potentially) injure himself. But agreed they're decent films - I hope they'll keep Rebecca Ferguson and Vanessa Kirby around going forwards.

As a single franchise, I think they’re probably the best. I mean you actually watch them as big action films and they really hit all the marks. Plus, everybody is always bringing their a-game and they look fun.

Whereas the Fast and Furious franchise suffers from going so big without the stakes really feeling like they are there and the acting is subpar.

But I’m going to pay my money to see the Transporter and the Rock fight a superhuman Luther.

Not a fan of Fast and Furious franchise but I do like that the new spin-off film works Rocks real Samoan Heritage into his film character.

Yeah it's a great franchise. I think the second one (set mostly in Australia) is the worst but if it wasn't for that movie we wouldn't have got Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.

I love the Mission Imposible movies, except perhaps the 3rd one, and thats because i havent seen it. MI2 was my favorite when it came out, but what i wish is that they had kept the female agente from the 4th one (my favorite of the saga) Its like there is a core cast of male agents that wotk with Ethan Hunt, and i wish it would be the same for a female one.

It seems like they're moving that direction. Rebecca Ferguson was in both Rogue Nation and Fallout. She's also stated she's returning at least for 7. One thing I appreciate is they've given the female agents more to do since MI:3. Paula Patton in Ghost Protocol definitely ended up slotted into the seductress line, but she was also an extremely competent agent when it came to combat. Rebecca Ferguson definitely pushed things forward in the female characters being more than just a sex symbol.

I'm really hoping we get Jeremy Renner back for 7 because I loved him as the sorta "straight-man" of the group.

Yeah, i liked Paula Patton and Jeremy Renner, the 4 was my favorite with all the crazy stunts, the builindg, that air vent. Wish the complete deliciousness of everythingt that was Henry Cavill in that role could've been there for two movies, because i still have the gifs of that fight in my phone.

We've had our little foster kitten Crumpet for 3 weeks now and I'm absolutely in love. I was almost ready to adopt her myself but she's already been adopted. We drop her off on Sunday. I'm sad about it, but at least it means we can keep fostering kittens in the future.

Yeah saw that. What a div...

I massively feel for people of colour in the States at the moment. I mean I know Obama wasn't perfect, but I thought his presidential terms indicated that some (though by no means all) of the racial prejudice of old in the US was fading, and then this complete bigot gets elected straight after.

It's scary too - whilst I don't perceive there to be as much racial prejudice in the UK as in the US, the issues with antisemitism in Labour and Islamophobia in the Tories shows that it's not far below the surface, and a populist isn't far away from making a difficult situation for many minorities much, much worse.

Ugh. Just got out of the northern Alberta forest and saw the headlines. I’m nauseated and embarrassed. I’m sorry we, the American electorate, have let you (us) down.
