MI:3 Movie Review

If you're an MI:3 fan like i am, have no worries spending that 8 bucks on a ticket (not that anyone should). This movie delivers to near orgasmic levels.

Ethan (Tom Cruise), who had apparently quit his job as an operative, is called back in for a mission to save one of his protegees (Keri Russel). In the process, he gets in too deep and pisses off the main antagonist (Phillip Seymour Hoffman) who in turn captures his wife and plans to kill her.
Ethan then discovers that there was a mole inside his agency and that Keri was actually set up.
He begins following it up as a result we get the hottest action thriller of the year!!

Other worthy mentions in the movie are Laurence Fishburne (Morpheus-TheMatrix), Maggie Q, Johnathan Rhy Meyers, Ving Rhames and Michelle Monaghan (who plays Tom's wife).
Now with that kind of cast, JJ Abrams on the director's seat, and the winner of the Best Actor this year Phillip Seymour (Capote), it's impossible to go wrong.

Your life means nothing until you have watched this installment. Trust me, it beats the previous two.


Frailty (2001): Movie Review

This Thriller/horror Starring Matthew McConaughey is about a man who walks into The FBI claiming that he has information about a couple of mysterious killings happening in the area. He says his father formed a group called God's hand and included him and his brother.
In flashbacks, we see the father getting lists of people to kill from 'God', and he uses an axe to kill them right infront of his sons saying that some day that task will fall on them.
One of the son's however, the one who goes to the FBI agent, is reluctant and like everyone else watching the movie, sees something wrong with the picture of killing people that his dad calls demons.
He ends up doing in his dad.

(at present) he tells the FBI agent that his brother continued killing people and he lures the agent to where the buried bodies are as proof.
A strange twist is introduced towards the climax of the movie: the man who walks into the FBI station is actually the other brother who continued with his father's task.

The most disturbing twist though is that he wasn't crazy like we are led to believe. He actually saw the evil in turns out that he really was doing God's work. The agent had killed his own mother earlier, so his death was justified when he was axed.

If one is ever digging in the recent past for an Okay thriller, i'd recomend this one.
