    Enjoyed those as well.

    Mission Impossible looks super polished, but the way that they make those movies is insane. They often don't know what the actual story of the movie is until after they've shot most of it. It's crazy.

    I can't stand Cruise, but I've given up on skipping his films. He's crazy, but he appears in a lot of stuff that I want to see, and he usually knows how to pick 'em. (I still hold THE MUMMY against him, though.)
    Just as a side question.....Anyone else feel like MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE has passed Bond by as the must-see espionage franchise?
    Haven't seen his Mummy yet. Not worth the watch, uh?

    I think they fill different roles. Mission Impossible is really all about the team and the spectacle. Where Bond is something else entirely, and not always the same something else. More classic spy movie, a lone spy doing their spy thing. When Bond is good, it's really good. Craig's bond seems to be on a 50% success rate. Casino Royale and Skyfall being out of the park good. Pre Craig it was basically a totally different genre though. More camp less grit.

    Finally got around to seeing MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: FALLOUT yesterday. Damn, what a film! I'm not a fan of Tom Cruise, but I have to give the crazy fucker props for all of the insane stunts that he does.
    And I watched THE INVITATION on Netflix last night....Solid and well-made, but I saw the ending coming a mile away, so that was kind of disappointing. I'd heard so much hype about the twist, and the last scene.....oh, well. I've seen and read too much, so I hardly ever get surprised anymore. I can call twist endings almost from the opening scene.
    LOL about Cruise. My wife calls me a fan boy of his. Although I'm not a fan of the craziness.

    "A blend of science fiction and noir detective fiction, Blade Runner (1982) was a box office and critical bust upon its initial exhibition, but its unique postmodern production design became hugely influential within the sci-fi genre, and the film gained a significant cult following that increased its stature." I'm not an expert, but I've stayed in Holiday Inns many times LOL!!

    I agree with Dan, 2049 is stunning to look at, it's incredibly beautiful. And the 4K BR release is as well. It's amazing a movie so old looks so good. It's on my list but I've not yet re-watched 2049 to see if my opinion of it improves the way that it changed with the first film. But I will say this, I've thought about it from time to time so it did leave an impression which I think indicates it was better than I first thought and deserves a second viewing. I see movies and after I leave the theater have hardly given them another thought even if I liked them. There's just not a lasting impression which has not been the case with 2049.

    All of this BLADE RUNNER talk has prompted me to finally read the BFI MODERN CLASSICS: BLADE RUNNER book that has been sitting on my shelf for TWO...DECADES. And I'm gonna watch both films again when I'm done with the book.

    I thought Blade Runner 2049 was awesome. It didn’t quite stick the landing, but I thought everything else was so good and built on the original without detracting from it or watering it down.
