Do you want me to start from the beginning: [url]http://collider.com/mission-impossible-2-retrospective-series-tom-cruise/[/url] [quote]The result was a disaster that jettisoned what was fun about the first movie and reduced Mission: Impossible II to a painfully generic action film that sucked the energy out of its talented actor and director and left audiences with a shell of a picture that’s both crushingly dull and ragingly misogynistic. [url]https://birthmoviesdeath.com/2015/05/11/when-doves-cry-john-woos-mission-impossible-ii[/url] Listening to Ambrose repeatedly blubber the word “bitch” is excruciating over the course of the film’s (surprisingly brief) two-hour runtime. [url]https://www.slashfilm.com/mission-impossible-2-john-woo/[/url] Unfortunately, there’s a cold misogynistic streak that runs through the center of Mission: Impossible II, as Nyah is relegated to being a pawn passed between powerful men (going as far as to engage in unwanted sexual congress with Ambrose in his Sydney hideaway). Even Hopkins’ debonair task master says that she’s recruited mainly because being born a woman has gifted her the innate ability to “deceive men”. One wonders if the lengthy custody battle Towne endured with his ex-wife Julie prompted him to inflict some rather heinous fictional trauma on the heroines (though, in fairness, his “manly” pulp screenwriting has historically presented women in a questionable light). [url]http://angriest.blogspot.com/2015/03/mission-impossible-ii-2000.html[/url] Hollywood regularly makes films that are sexist, and that sideline or objectify its female characters - or in some cases exclude women from their narratives altogether. M:I2 goes one step further than that. Based purely on on-screen evidence, I'm pretty sure those in control of this film actively hate women.[/quote] Isn't Kim Basinger more or less, a giant McGuffin (like a contrived vehicle to move the plot forward), a mousy figure for the bad guys to repeatedly bully and debase, and a pseudo prize for Chris Evans' bravery!? I think that we're a little far off in regards to the so called "reality" in this movie: [url]http://forum.earwolf.com/topic/59133-episode-205-cellular-w-ike-barinholtz-erin-gibson/?do=findComment&comment=293065[/url] [url]http://forum.earwolf.com/topic/59133-episode-205-cellular-w-ike-barinholtz-erin-gibson/?do=findComment&comment=293057[/url] [url]http://forum.earwolf.com/topic/59133-episode-205-cellular-w-ike-barinholtz-erin-gibson/?do=findComment&comment=293219[/url] In effect, the "ends justified the means"!? Again you're using the old, "well they're bad guys, so what do you expect" excuse in your argument, which is completely lazy, trite, and cheap. Recapping the 1999 Oscars Ceremony, When Shakespeare Beat Spielberg [url]https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2019/02/1999-oscar-ceremony-recap[/url] This year’s annual 20 year Oscars recap by @rilaws is, predictably, a delight and, less predictably, contains this deeply haunted GIF of Kim Basinger.

In 1995 Silverstone starred in Clueless, a movie which became a massive pop culture phenomena. And in so doing, Silverstone, who was only 18 when filming, became a massive Hollywood star. Batman and Robin was the big commercial follow up that was supposed to cement her career. However as production began on Batman and Robin, Silverstone started to face relentless criticism about her weight.[1] She was compared to the pig from Babe, she was harassed by paparazzi chanting “fat girl” at her. And it wasn’t just external, even on set she was subject to mocking for her weight. All of which set the stage for what became considered one of the worst movies of the ‘90s, and is now a punchline in its own right. In most reviews, Silverstone didn’t come off any worse than anyone else involved in Batman and Robin, but she suffered far more for it. Everyone involved in the production had to rebuild their career afterwards. George Clooney rebuilt himself as the guy who does independent Academy Awards bait movies. Uma Thurman was lucky enough that she starred in Pulp Fiction only a few years earlier and retreated back into more eclectic movies. Chris O’Donnell went into hiding for fourteen years before reemerging as a TV star. Alicia Silverstone, however, never recovered. She has worked in small parts on small projects but nothing particularly high profile. Going into Batman and Robin, Silverstone was the biggest star after Arnold Schwarzenegger. Going out of it, her career was in ruins and never recovered.[/quote] BUMP: [url]https://www.reddit.com/r/movies/comments/asughe/old_james_bond_movies_are_offensive/[/url] Is Kevin Spacey done as an actor?
