Mission Impossible movies while great action movies are not good MI flicks. Anyone agree?

The first one was a decent MI flick I think... but the second one was pure action (and garbage :P)

Any movies with Tom Cruise in them are not good movies.

Here's why I think MI movies were craptacular MI titles. Mission Impossible stories were based on the premise that this group has been selected by the smartest people. No stone left unturned. They are the absolute best available. And they are loyal. In the MI series there would be NO betrayals. Yet all the MI movies are based on an insider betrayal. Like the people selecting these MI agents are going to miss the "will betray team for personal gain" part? Doubtful. Which is why I say they are great action movies, but horrible MI titles.

Mighty Ducks. Best sports trilogy of all time. Agree?

I tried to see how long ago that was, date says 1969. Man, do I feel old now.

I really couldn't stop laughing the whole time I was reading that. Ian's responses and attempts to remove the nutsack talk were probably what pushed it over the top for me.

That movie was HILARIOUS! I don't even mind that I spent money on seeing it in the theatres, since I went in expecting pretty much what I got. I actually expected less of a plot line then I got, but that's ok :P

I wouldn't say there would be no betrayals...but I would say Jim Phelps never would have been a traitor. That killed the first movie for me.

The second one was poor too, what happens when you let John Woo direct what ought to be a plot-oriented flick.
