A reverse-documentary about covid where the good guys win.

Maybe in it's time it was good, but I tuned out. I guess I'll watch the rest of the series, but this comes off as forgettably-episodic. Recommended only for people who like the first one, and who would like a bubblegum version of the samey "safe" spy/crime movies.

  • Properly titled Mission: Impossible 2
  • stylized as M:I-2

When an asshole father dies, his asshole son learns everything was given to a brother he didn't know existed.

A bad dad and some shitty kids run away when aliens come down and up and stomp around.

While it's a great ride, it's ultimately unsatisfying and can't be recommended.

An old ace fighter pilot is dusted off to instruct for an impossible mission.

Slow and boring; I don't see the popularity at all other than it's not woke.

The Earth is ruined when aliens invade, and a maintenance skeleton crew monitors killer drones to protect resource-gathering efforts for survivors.

A fantastic movie from every angle. A very strong mood throughout. Highly recommended.

An antiquities reclamation rogue discovers an ancient Egyptian prison, and becomes an unwilling agent for the curse within.
