Explosions and Stuff

I went to see Mission Impossible 3 last night. I've got to admit, I can't stand Tom Cruise and I wasn't a fan of the previous 2 films, but with JJ Abrams involvement and me being something of a part-time geek I figured it was worth investigation. I'm (kinda) pleased to admit, I rather enjoyed it. It was rather like a big budget cartoon episode of 24, but that's no bad thing.

It's cool to see such visionary TV people getting involved with major film franchises. JJ Abrams is best known for his other creations Alias and Lost, which basically means he's a damn heavyweight with genre television. Which brings me onto another Film and TV heavyweight - Lalo Schifrin. He single-handedly made 60's and early 70's film and TV sound cool with his bossa nova inspired themes. Iconic soundtracks to Mission Impossible, Bullitt and Dirty Harry sit amongst his most recognised work, yet he's also an accomplished classical composer too. Check out some of his stuff, you won't be dissapointed.
