So, I do like action movies, and I do like the Uptown Theatre in Cleveland Park, so this Holiday weekend I was to check out Mission Impossible 4.
Tom Cruise and Paramount?
Maybe I read the tabloids, but I thought that when Tom Cruise declared his belief in Scientology, that Paramount dropped him from all movie contracts, but several years later, back they are working together.
While I do work in DC, I don’t work for a defense contractor, so maybe for you guys the technology is already used in the military today, but for me, real or not, it was really cool! While more complicated than one would think, the projection screen with a camera behind it to camouflage them as they moved closer to the guard station was really nice. Also, Apple must have shelled out a few advertizing bucks as the iPad was used quite often and they all had iPhones.
The briefcase with document printer was also really cool. Paired with a camera contact lens, pretty cool.
Probably the cheesiest technical item were the seemingly static cling gloves. While it did not seem that possible, the sound they made when “energizing” was truly annoying. It was really funny when they broke after just a short time, I guess that was the realistic part 🙂
The Best MI Movie?
I do need to watch the first 3 over again, but I do have to agree that the movie was action packed and had the actors tossed in a fair share of comical statements along the way. I am not sure if I will spend the money on Blu-Ray when it comes out, but it certainly will be a movie I will rent for a $1 to see again.
