Action double-feature night:
Arguably a perfect '80s action flick... lean & mean, doesn't overstay its welcome, immensely satisfying. (And for the first time, I noticed an issue of JB's ALPHA FLIGHT in the racks, during the scene in the convenience store!)*
MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 2 (2000)
First time watching all the way through since it hit theaters 20 years ago (*heavy sigh*)... easily the most ridiculous entry in the series. Unfortunately, a lot of that is on John Woo's shoulders... I don't find this a well-directed or edited movie at all, loaded with too many poor CGI effects, and unintentionally hilarious about every 5 minutes.
*(EDIT: My mistake... at first glance, looked like the cover from an earlier JB issue, but most likely a later issue after he left the series. But that logo was unmistakable!)
