    Very standard with beautiful scenery.

    The First Time


    The more I’ve thought about it the more I think this was really well done. Hipster. Cliché. Overwrought. Forcibly awkward. These characters were, and they were nice in it. It had a feel of real. The plot was easy and the number of characters  perfect—sometimes there’s too much noise in a film; it’s hard to hear myself think. Magnificent action movie prodding. Finished with a Naked and Famous song! It would have been perfect, loud over the ending credits. And the parents were cool.

    Top Gun


    I've bought the DVD, the soundtrack, watched the making of and dreamed about Kelly McGillis more than one time. The film that did more for Air Force enlistments than anything else will do the same for you.

    If you've ever been holding on too tight with a bunch of oiled up dudes then you will lose your edge over Top Gun again and again.

    Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol


    What did I learn from Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol? Let me see. There are a lot of BMWs in Dubai and Mumbai (coincidence?) and they have safety features you can trust, and cool start controls, and cool wheels and cool grill-lights, what? I haven't seen such gross product placement in a while. Oh yeah, and iPhones. iPhones are cool, iPads are cool, apparently USB cables are cool; but iPhones in rubberised cases? I guess they might knock them around…
