Just now finished Mission Impossible II. Not the best :-) Is the rest of the series better? I did like the fist one.
Ben - Mi:II is the drizzling shits! John Woo on steroids...

They get immeasurably better, starting with JJ Abrams III - probably my favourite of his directed films (not saying a ton, but y'know...) it has a gnarly opening set piece with a genuinely shocking end, introduced the lovely Michelle Monaghan into the series, and has P.S.Hoffman as an all-time great adversary.

And they just kinda keep getting better (bigger, more dangerous for Tom, sillier) as they go on.

Accept the Mission!! :D
I can echo this. 2 is something of an outlier in this series, which against all odds not only jumps way up in quality again, but also somehow gets better and better with each installment.

I'll also chime in here on MI. I'm not a big fan of the first, the second I really dislike but from 3 onwards they are great. The last few have been incredibly entertaining.

A lot of new stuff going on lately... Countdown 6/10, doctor sleep 6/10, midway 4/10, watchmen TV series 9/10 so far, young offenders 7/10 so far, Wu assassins 7/10 so far.

And a shout out to First We Feast channel on YouTube, specifically Hot Ones but also the content generally is top notch, well made entertainment.

Hot Ones is hit or miss for me, especially since the host has settled into a very specific routine for the show and doesn't seem to push for interesting interview questions. With that said I still watch a lot of the episodes.
I really love The Burger Show with Alvin though. That one is a lot of fun.

and Joan Collins as a stripper

strange movie with some very corny/silly comic stuff and child abuse

The first episode of The Mandalorian was good stuff.

I just downloaded it but I have no idea when I'll actually get to watching it. I'm way behind on most of my TV watching already.

Still have not caught either of those, but I watched Hagazussa on Shudder over the weekend. Creepy atmosphere throughout, and the goat eroticism stuff was weird af, but I was very zoned out by MMMD's original score . Their music felt to be in the vein of Sunn O))) ambiance.
