    My current Mission Impossible rankings are:

    #3
    #4
    #1
    #2

    I need to re-watch the fifth to see how I feel about it.

    We can all agree that the third Mission Impossible film is the best one, right?

    No, while it's a fantastic movie, 5 is the best. It goes

    5
    4
    3
    1
    2

    My only change would be the amount of space between 1 and 2.

    I feel like you should have to Page Down at least twice.

    I don't think I've seen one of 4 or 5 but I'm unsure of which. The last one I saw had Jeremy Renner and Tom Cruise almost falling off a giant glass hotel and then a sandstorm came?

    It’s probably the most consistent franchise in film right now save for maybe if you count “Marvel movies as a whole”

    2 is the only one that doesn’t feel of a piece with the others

    Mission Impossible on the N64 had a level that I just couldn't complete and I didn't have enough time to work it out before I had to take it back to Blockbusters. It still irks me 20 years later.

    I watched about half of How to Marry a Millionaire on the plane and I'd somehow forgotten how much fun that movie is. Totally idiotic, of course.

    Other thoughts, post 24-hour plane ride:

    Atomic Blonde: Basically what it says on the tin. Charlize Theron knows how to take a beating.

    Lady Bird: You know I wasn't sure I'd like this, and the first half I was kind of meh on (or maybe just in the wrong mood) but by the end I was kind of enjoying it. Laurie Metcalfe is fantastic.
    Definitely not as resonant for me as for some others in this thread, but it was well-made and cute

    The Post: Another movie which was largely weighted to the back end. Bob Odenkirk is a treasure.

    All The Money In The World: Michelle Williams deserves some kind of Oscar, she was amazing. Mark Wahlberg is a waste of space.
    edit:
    Even leaving aside Spacey's heinous shit, I think Plummer was a better choice for this role. Spacey would not have been able to resist the urge to scenery chew, while Plummer's restraint and subtlety made the character that much more petty and despicable.

    That said, I'm fairly sure Andrew Buchan was cast largely because he could plausibly be Spacey's son, so that's gotta be annoying.

    Just saw that Rob Hardy is shooting the new Mission Impossible flick. With Annihilation earlier this year, and Ex Machina a while back, he’s killing it. Great Instagram, too.

    I've seen all of the Mission Impossible movies but in my mind they all bleed into each other and I have no idea what any of the plots actually are beyond "GASP, BETRAYAL!"

    My favorite part of MI 1 in retrospect is just the whole

    "Did you really think I would give you the real disc?"
    *angrily throws disc in the trash*
    *goes to pick out of trash*
    "You actually gave him the real disc?"

    5 has a whole sequence where Benji is excited to get to wear a mask, complete with "out-takes" and then a mask is actually pretty key at the end.

    I love the masks so much that they get a fist pump from me every time.

    please mister cavill!! please don't shoot me with your fists!

    I've heard of not wanting to get punched by Mister Kal-El, but Mister Cavill?!

    Steven Spielberg and Leonardo DiCaprio, who last worked together on 2002's Catch Me If you Can, are in early discussions to reteam for a Ulysses S. Grant biopic.

    It was previously announced that DiCaprio's Appian Way shingle had acquired the Ron Chernow's biography, Grant, and would be developing the project with Lionsgate.

    Robin Hood scripter David James Kelly will pen the feature, which would be produced by DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson.

    Oh hey, I just watched the trailer for Robin Hood and uhhh ... I’m actually into it? It’s like someone said “You know what would make a good Thief movie? If you took that, removed the supernatural stuff, replaced it with on-the-nose politics and civil unrest, then made it look kiiiiiinda medieval but also with ‘ye olde modern chic’ apparel.”

    I don’t know why I’m into it. It looks like the good kind of bad, though.

    It’s one of those movies I try and convince everyone to see. And every time I convince someone to see it, I can’t help but go see it again myself.

    It never gets any less dreamy.

    Technically, no one is buried there. He is interred, above ground.
