EP. 284 — Ranking the Mission: Impossible Films (with Light The Fuse)

Amy & Paul accept a mission from Drew Taylor and Charles Hood (hosts of the Light The Fuse podcast) to rate each of the Mission: Impossible films, and decide whether any of them deserve to go to space! They’ll discuss the many eras of Ethan Hunt, how Brian De Palma set the template for what an auteur-driven franchise film could do, whether the latest entry nailed its climactic set piece, and Tom Cruise’s famous cake.

 

Next week. Paul and Amy are watching American Psycho! You can join the conversation for this series on Paul’s Discord at https://discord.gg/ZwtygZGTa6.
