don't ask me why it was playing at 10pm on thursday night before it's release. maybe they're expecting some crazy mob of a crowd but after being able to count all... 6 people in the theater, I very much doubt that. either way, it was a good excuse to see my dear friend kristina on her first day back from school in montreal. you crazy canuck-wannabe!
tom cruise, despite his recent and very obvious dimentia (that's insanity for you delinquents) on the oprah show and the whole silly scientology thing, his work in this movie was absolutely masterful. you couldn't tell he's crazy at all! but I attribute all that trickery to him being a sith lord. no really, look below!
I can see why JJ Abrams, the genius behind LOST and Alias, directed this film, after all his mass amounts of spy experience in Alias. I mean, Alias is practically the same thing if you really think about it. ps. he's doing the next star trek film! wee! correction to what I may have told some people, it's bryan singer from x-men and x2 fame that's doing superman, not JJ abrams.
either way, from the beginning of the movie to the end, it's a non-stop ride of shit blowing up, bullets flying and just various cool gadgetry/stunts that makes mission impossible what it is. the story doesn't get too cheezy and there are no annoying love scenes to bore you. the pacing of the movie is just perfect. the best way I can explain is that I didn't find it very predictable just because I didn't think about it, the movie kept going quickly enough. and some kick ass dialouge. unfortunately, no cover major band covering the original theme this time. :(
go see it, I liked it.
welcoming you to cardboard city
