It took three viewings (twice in the theater, once at home with audio commentary), but I think I’ve finally come down on the side of Infinity War.
If Mission Impossible 3 nailed it, Ghost Protocol built the house. To me, the fourth installment of the franchise really set the tone for what this series should be. All the action and spycraft fits with what I would expect to see out of these movies, and Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner add a humor that provides a balance that was lacking in the first movie.
And I’m glad I rewatched it, because I’m pretty sure I had been confusing parts of it with something else. Maybe a Bourne movie?
Of the first three Mission: Impossible movies, I want to say this one takes the cake in most regards.
You know, it’s a little sad. I can kind of see where a decent movie could have come out of M:I-2. It still wouldn’t have been a Mission: Impossible movie, but it wouldn’t have been the snooze-fest that this is.
Yeah, yeah. That trio of CW shows comprising DC’s Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow may officially still be known as the Arrowverse, But Cuddle Me Beebo, the lovable Elmo knockoff off that flew from the shelves, was a god for a little while and even sort of…you know, I can’t spoil it…but suffice to say that Beebo has made its presence known in two of the three series and has to exist in the third, since they’re all connected.
So, I’m calling it: The Arrowverse is now the Beeboverse, and I’ll fight you over it. But since it’s all so much better when we get along, let’s take a look at three shows that, even when they’re not perfect, never fail to entertain me.
I’m hoping to see Mission: Impossible – Fallout next week, and I wanted to revisit the series before I did.
Most of my wrap-up from last season will probably fit in one post, but there’s kind of a lot I wanted to say about this 13th season of Supernatural, plus some season 14 predictions.
