Mission: Impossible 3

Mission: Impossible 3. Better than I remembered. Hoffman is casually one of the most terrifying villains of the past couple decades. It’s a shame that Keri Russell didn’t have a larger role. Current Mission: Impossible rankings:

  1. Mission: Impossible
  2. Mission: Impossible 3
  3. Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation
  4. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol
  5. Mission: Impossible 2

It seems the rule of thumb here is that the quality of the MI films is inversely proportional to the length of Tom Cruise’s hair.

Thin Ice

Thin Ice. It never quite hit the right rhythm on the funny parts, and the soundtrack wasn’t sure what kind of story this was, but this was a decent, moderately entertaining movie until the last five minutes when it turned into Ocean’s Eleven. There are twists, and then there are twists that undermine everything you just saw. Turns out, the movie wasn’t about the movie you thought you were watching! Disappointing.
