Looking forward to the next M:I installments and anything from Kosinksi with a decent script.
I agree with everything you say—especially about Oblivion!—except I think Cruise is extraordinary in the film.

Imagine paying $1000 to hear "Don't Dream It's Over" instead of "Go Your Own Way"

Fleetwood Mac helped me through a time of heartbreak. 12 years later, they broke my heart.
