Partial Recall – Mission: Impossible II (2000)

Q: When did you last see Mission: Impossible II, Jon?

Opening weekend – I think it was Memorial Day weekend – at the AMC Mercado with Claudine.

Q: What do you remember about the film?

Well, I remember Tom Cruise climbing a cliff, and Ben Stiller parodying it on the MTV Movie Awards.

I remember watching the Making the Video episode for "I Disappear," which I believe is the first song Metallica ever composed for a film soundtrack. "Hey, hey, hey…" I remember the band was helicoptered onto a butte.

I remember the video for Limp Bizkit's take on M:I's theme music was only shown in Europe at first.

I remember chuckling at John Woo's use of doves and Tom Cruise's on-screen mid-life crisis – long hair! a motorcycle!

I remember Anthony Hopkins?

I remember the villain severing a finger with a cigar cutter in a luxury suite at a racetrack.

That's all I remember.

  1. I remember watching a DVID version of it on my computer my freshman year of college in my dorm.
