Impossible Missions

Ha! Okay, Van Halen is one of my favorite bands of all time, and I hope I can see them again in concert! Anyway, they don't have the best track record with tours with David Lee Roth, here's hoping everything will go okay!!! They're going to be in NY soon--check it out.

Also saw Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol as well. It isn't going to blow any minds, but it does revolve around a series of really cool stunts and this great desert chase scene that was the highlight of the flick. I think Tom Cruise (and I never thought I'd see another one of his movies after he revealed himself to be an unstable Scientologist nutjob) wants to prove he's still not jumping on couches by doing these crazy adrenaline-junky stunts off a building that may or may not have really been in Dubai. A pre-Hawkeye Jeremy Renner is an analyst/agent in the flick, and kills it with his stunts and action scenes. All of them really provided comedic bits, even though you may think this is Simon Pegg's domain. Lost's Josh Halloway is in the movie for about 5 minutes and is on the way to a good post-Lost career. The team has a tendency to rely on ridiculously high-tech toys but it looks good on film, for action and laughs. It also shows that India has really cool toys, even if they're just for parking Euro-cars. The ending kinda leaves you guessing how they got there, but it makes sense plot-wise. Good action movie, nothing more.
