Just read about it there. He's retiring from blockbuster film-making, but will make small experimental films. He's been talking about doing this for years, saying he's jealous of Francis Ford Coppola...

I agree that MI2 is the weakest, but not hugely so like everyone else. It has a terrific, terrific score by Hans Zimmer, and one of the best fight scenes in movie history. But it has a weak plot and...
