Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (w/ Arbi Derzakharian)

EWelcome to the Rogue Nation, baby!! Make way for the latest director to tackle one of these bad boys, Christopher McQuarrie. The writer of The Usual Suspects and Valkyrie is stepping up to the plate for the 5th Mission: Impossible movie. Is it a home run or does he strike out? The Syndicate, a super secret criminal organization, has it in for our beloved IMF team. Can Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his crew stop them? To make things even more complicated, Hunt gets extra confused when he meets the elusive Ilsa (Rebecca Ferguson), because even she doesn't know which team she plays for in this wacky flick!

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (w/ Arbi Derzakharian)

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (w/ Charlie Kaufman)

EListen in as we dissect the classic film, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol! It's the first film to utilize a subtitle instead of a sequential number, which makes it less of a sequel and more of its own thing...right? Maybe? If anything it just confuses people as to which number sequel this is... Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is BACK and this time...HE'S SINGLE AGAIN, LADIES!! Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames) sits this one out too. But Hunt is joined by Jane (Paula Patton), Brandt (Jeremy Renner) and former computer nerd turned IMF agent Benji (Simon Pegg). This time the team has to stop a madman from blowing up San Francisco. Can they do it?!? Oh, and don't worry, this one's shot in IMAX 70mm film, so shut up film nerds!

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (w/ Charlie Kaufman)

Mission: Impossible III (w/ Tarik Jackson)

EToday we'll be discussing Mission: Impossible III, directed by J.J. Abrams. This movie came out immediately after Tom Cruise's couch jumping and Scientology antics, so people weren't exactly in love with the guy as much. Did that have an effect on this movie's box office return? That's for YOU to decide! Ethan Hunt (Cruise) gets a new team together to help him hunt down an arms dealer named Owen Davien (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and a mysterious MacGuffin called the "Rabbit's Foot". It's J.J. Abrams at his finest, before he discovered lens flares! Joining us on this adventure is friend of the pod, writer, director and improviser, Tarik Jackson!

Mission: Impossible III (w/ Tarik Jackson)

Mission: Impossible II (w/ Jacob Strick)

E2000's Mission: Impossible II is the subject of this show and this time the boyz are joined by none other than writer and musician, Jacob Strick! Jacob has a unique connection to this film, which makes him the perfect guest to help us dive head-first into this enigma of a motion picture. Free solo stunts, motorcycles, generic white dude bad guys, viruses, slow motion shots galore, plus Limp Bizkit! This film has it all! Directed by Hong Kong action legend, John Woo, this movie finds Ethan Hunt embroiled in a love triangle between the mysterious Nyah Nordoff-Hall (Thandie Newton) and the boringly-named Sean Ambrose (Dougray Scott) while trying to figure out the mystery behind a new virus called Chimera and also its cure, Bellerophon. Don't know what those are? Don't worry, they only explain it forty-seven times in the movie! Come along to the tune of "Iko Iko" with the boyz as they come prepared to every possible life scenario with masks of each others faces at all times...JUST IN CA...
