  • Mission: Impossible III

    Mission: Impossible III

    ★★★½

    “You can look at me with those judgmental eyes all you want, but I bullshit you not, I will bleed on the American flag to make sure those stripes stay red.”

    oh this is so much better than the previous one thank goodness. the plot is actually relevant and is not just a barely cohesive string of events.

    ★★★★

    “You don't get it, do you? This isn't "good cop, bad cop." This is fag and New Yorker. You're in a lot of trouble.”

    Shane Black baby. thought i would check this out since it’s supposedly very similar to The Nice Guys which is one of my all time faves and now that i’ve seen it... yes. definitely. 

    they make a great double feature because Kiss Kiss Bang Bang has pretty much the same structure and dynamic from plot, to…
