Hi Bryan Here….

I don’t know much about this movie, but I do know it has an all-star cast that includes: Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, and John Hurt.  IMDB describes the film as “In the bleak days of the Cold War, espionage veteran George Smiley is forced from semi-retirement to uncover a Soviet agent within MI6’s echelons.”  So who knows.  Trailer is pretty good though.  Enjoy the trailer below.

Sparky Shagwell’s Snap Judgement:

Based off the name alone, I assumed this was a knock-off Disney movie… But I was wrong. Serious strings playing in the background, spy jargon being tossed around (moley, moley, moley), Gary Oldman with a fantastic old man hair piece… I want to know more, but I don’t want to be bored. This one can go either way. Aside from the former Austin Powers reference, I laughed when one of the characters said, “we’re not really so different, you and I.”
