    The only good thing about the Brosnan bond is he got his ass kicked by a much cooler Famke Janssen.

    LOL Goldeneye is indeed the best Bond film! It even has the best theme song!

    And yes it is because Famke tried to squeeze him to death with her thighs. That jungle sequence at the end is one of my all-time favorites!

    It's also not clear what happens next. At least Mission Impossible has going for it the idea of "quests" or jobs to be accomplished as part of Ian's employment. Jason Bourne had going for him the quest to figure who he is. Here, Aaron's task has been basically to stay alive and get off the meds they've been feeding him. So if they do another film, it's gonna have to actually find a direction for itself.
    That was the only problem I had with it too. The abrupt ending took me aback, and the lack of wrap-up makes me think there's going to be another movie. I wouldn't mind another movie, but I would prefer some closure within each movie.

    I think that because Renner's character didn't need to discover who he was or recover his memories, a big show-down at the end was unnecessary. He knew exactly who was coming after him

    James Bond would wipe the floor with that Bourne punk in a heartbeat.
    Ultimatum was by the far the best, which is a pleasant change. Number 3 in trilogies too often suck a big one.

    James Bond v. Jason Bourne...I would pay to see that showdown. My money's on Daniel Craig.

    Pretty sure Daniel Craig would win. He is one of the few manly men left in Hollywood.
    With the exception of Return of the King and Ultimatum, yes.

    The third chapter often marginalizes everything that came before (I'm looking at you Dark Knight Rises).

    Damn right.
    That's how pussified we are over here.

    You KNOW there is a problem when American icons such as Batman, Superman and Spider-Man are Brits.

    What?

    You cannot compare anyone to Jason Bourne when it comes to hand to hand combat. Bourne is as close to invincible as your going to get.
