      Really? I thought III was the best out of the bunch, but that’s just my opinion. M:I II was weak, although when I first saw it I thought it was amazing. I’ve heard it bashed in the ten years since it came out and I saw the ending to it recently and my opinion on II has changed, its not so good…

    Weirdly enough, I never saw the second one – and that’s the one I wanted to see the most. John Woo! Plus, the soundtrack is badass (I still listen to it).

    Saw the third one in theaters because I was visiting FDU and everyone was going, but I wouldn’t have otherwise. It wasn’t bad, just…well, every time Tom Cruise was on screen, I couldn’t help but remember that he’s batshit insane. 😀

    This was around the time he was in the headlines for the Scientology stuff, so go figure…maybe it was a better movie than I give it credit.

      really? you can’t find it on-line or anything?

      listen, you come by my house and you can borrow it anytime…any movie for that matter…anything that you’ve never seen…you can borrow…honestly. All you have to do is find your way to my house. Whatever is in my library of movies is up for you (Mike, I don’t want any strangers coming here looking for a DVD or anything) to borrow….how does that sound?
