MI 3

I went and saw the new Tom Cruise Egofest otherwise known as Mission Impossible III. I mostly went because the reviews and trailers all made Phillip Seymour Hoffman look to be an outstanding bad guy. Unfortunately, the time and effort required to stoke Cruise's ego left none for any bad guy development. This left Hoffman as a generic pyschopath though he did chew his way through his lines with enough gusto to be reminiscent of Pacino.

I would like to see a Mission Impossible movie with no big stars in it so they could get back to the teamwork aspect that the television show had. The movies have been reduced to the bouncing midget and his every increasingly generic flunkies. It is sad to see such good actors wasted in the wake of the Ego.
