And didn't we already do Mission Impossible?

 

Yeah. Maybe Tom and Abe brought these movies for discussion and didn't know there was already a MI episode.

After owning up to your mistake I think you've earned the title Forum Man.

Interesting matchup, Top Gun has had way more cultural impact but Minority Report is the better movie.

I really enjoyed Spielberg's Minority Report at the time, but after reading PKD's "The Minority Report" I'm incapable of respecting the story. The decision made at the end MAKES NO SENSE, and the whole thing is really just a refusal to grapple with the issue PKD did in favor of making a conventional action movie (which it's a fairly good example of).

 

I think it was the first thing I saw Samantha Morton in. After seeing her mute performance in "Sweet and Lowdown", I'm now curious to hear the voice recordings she made for Spike Jonze's "Her" before Scarlett Johannson redid them.

Top Gun, oh Jesus Christ, what a terrible terrible film.

It's especially Infuriating since its shelf life is somehow viewed as immortal.
