    Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

    ★★

    It's, you know, for kids.

    It was never meant for adult, Gen X STAR WARS fans.

    That doesn't mean it's any good, though.

  • Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

    Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

    ★★★

    Had more-or-less the same problem with this as I did with GHOST PROTOCOL. There's some decent action scenes (although nothing as spectacular as Burj Khalifa), but the lack of a strong villain really hurts the film's effectiveness.

    High Fidelity

    ★★★★

    Watching this was like opening a time capsule from a much different time. And, I know it's not "cool" to say, but I'd love to see a sequel depicting what these characters are doing now that the majority of people listen to music on their smartphones.

    UPDATE, 6April2018: Well, apparently Disney is making this into a TV show.

    Mission: Impossible III

    ★★★½

    More action movies should have badass cold opens like this one. PSH really makes this thing work.

    And, damn, Cruise was 44-going-on-24 when he made this. Maybe there is something to that Scientology thing. (Just kidding. It's good genes, hard work, and lots and lots of money.)
