MI 3

On Mel's recommendation, I went to see Mission Impossible 3 on Mother's Day with Mike and the little kids (ages 13 and 14-so I guess not so little)

It was great. Lots of action. And I mean, lots of action. My favorite part of these movies is when they do the mask bit. You know what I'm talking about. When they "create" a perfect image of someone with a rubber mask (but you actually know it's the actor playing himself)

Phillip Seymour Hoffman was a great bad guy. And Tom Cruise, well, he was Tom Cruise. I'm convinced the guy must have found the Fountain of Youth. He's like 42 and still looks 12. Although a very hot 12.

I give MI 3 a big thumbs up. But, I must warn you. There's lots of explosions. My friend Cindy from work is convinced that Tom has put subliminal messages promoting Scientology into the explosion scenes. If I start acting weird in the next few weeks, then we'll know she was right...

I thought of your friend during the movie...so far, so good. I'm as anti-organized-everything as ever!

LOL, Maria! Since dh hates any movie with explosions, I'll have to sneak away and see it on my own. I wonder if there are special anti-subliminal-messages glasses I can wear. :)

As far as Tom looking forever young, my brother could be his separated-at-birth twin (he's adopted, so you never know. *snort*). Anyway, Mike's 37 now and still looks 20, except for a touch of gray in his sideburns. And he HATES IT! He wants to look more mature. LOL. I wonder if Tom feels that way too.

My ex-husband looked like Tom Cruise. My ex is now 43 and I haven't seen him in 14-15 years but I'd like to believe he looks about 87 now. ;-)

Tom Cruise never did anything for me. Weird, huh? I like his movies though. The Zipper and I take ear plugs to the movies...they always have it so loud!

Honestly, Tom Cruise has never done anything for me, either. I've always liked him movies (except Top Gun--bleh!) and think he's a great actor, but I don't find him particulary sexy. It's like I said-- It's like thinking a 12 year old is sexy. There's just something really wrong with that...

Ebert said...

Oh Siskel, what do you mean Top Gun, bleh!? What's not to love? Great action, love story, best friend dies... Sigh, sometimes I feel as though I don't know you at all.

Ebert,

We have talked about this before. It's just too cheesy. Besides, "An Officer and a Gentleman" has all that and does it a million times better...

MariaGeraci said...

Oh, except for the volleyball scene. I DO LIKE that volleyball scene! Only it's Iceman I have the hots for!

Mel Francis said...

dear ebert,

Maria is out of her ever-lovin'-mind where Top Gun is concerned. She'll just have to accept that she's wrong one day.
