Re: Brad Bird all but confirmed as "Mission: Impossible IV" director

I saw Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol in IMAX. I'd kept hearing from people how great the movie was, and how the people who saw it in IMAX were just gushing about it. I can happily say they were absolutely right - it was a thrilling experience.

About the only negative thing I have to say about the film is that I was disappointed in how they chose to handle Paula Patton's character. Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, hell even Josh Holloway - all got to do cool things and have their unique and yet ultimately satisfying skills and abilities. Hers? She just had to sit there and be pretty and try to seduce the bad guy.

It would have been far more entertaining and interesting if the plan had actually been to have her do precisely that - seduce the bad guy, only to find out moments before going in that the guy she's supposed to seduce isn't heterosexual at all.

But whatever. It's a smart, intense and ultimately satisfying film that I enjoyed very much.
