I watched Sharknado yesterday.  Since I knew what to expect, I really enjoyed it and I nearly died laughing every time a shark killed someone.  I'd give it 8/10

I've never watched any of the Sharknado movies. I do like a good cheesy horror/comedy movie though so I should really give it a shot.

Just watched Kingsman the golden circle the other night.  Very good movie although not as much depth as the first. Still enjoyable though.

I'm 30 minutes into the 2nd one and fighting to stay awake. ::)

Finished Mission Impossible 2 and it was great after the 45 minute mark. The motorcycles at the end was coolest chase scene(s) I've ever seen lol. Way overdone and completely impossible but still looked awesome 8)
Too bad they didn't play I Disappear until the credits though. And an edited version. Ew. This was one of my favorite videos back in the day:


Can't wait to check out the 3rd one 8)

Finally finished Mission Impossible 3 (2006). Took a few days and I don't like breaking it up like that but well worth it. This movie ROCKS! From the opening scene I was like, Oh no :-\
Then, the reveal later on was excellent and unexpected :D
Plus, the scene on top of the roof in Shanghai was intense as hell. Had me at the edge of my seat.
Non-insane Tom Cruise is awesome 8)


Moving on to Ghost Protocol...

I haven't seen it.  Guess I'll need to have a watch.  I recently watched Australia

Synopsis:  Set in northern Australia before World War II, an English aristocrat who inherits a sprawling ranch reluctantly pacts with a stock-man in order to protect her new property from a takeover plot. As the pair drive 2,000 head of cattle over unforgiving landscape, they experience the bombing of Darwin, Australia, by Japanese forces firsthand.

Though this movie is slow paced, I enjoyed watching it because of the link to a historical event.  Interestingly enough, the I looked for this history and learned the Darwin was attacked two months after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Sounds interesting. I'll have to check that one out 8)



Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011)
This was another great one. Tons of action and scaling the outside of the Burj Khalifa skyscraper in Dubai. Every scene there was intense 8)
Also, a cat fight between Paula Patton and hot assassin chick Léa Seydoux

For reference :D


This was the first one without Ving Rhames as a main character, though :-\  He was onscreen for like 25 seconds at the end. Anyway, it was fantastic in 1080p with amped Klipsch speakers. Especially during the nuke launch portion. Edge of the seat again lol.



Moving on to Rogue Nation..

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (2015) Another excellent movie. Started with a bang and continued to the end save for a looooong scene in an opera near the beginning. A high speed motorcycle chase and underwater "hold your breath for way too long" set of scenes rounded it out for the intensity.



Great series and looking forward to M:I 6 - Mission Impossible in 2018 8)
