After a short break, Doug and Dirty A return from their New York adventure with tales of U2 concerts and Meredith Vieira merchandise. They then discuss three films in theaters now: Judd Apatow‘s Trainwreck, written by and starring Amy Schumer; Antoine Fuqua‘s Southpaw, starring Jake Gyllenhaal; and Christopher McQuarrie‘s Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation, starring some guy named Tom. Take a listen!
The Mission: Impossible series has proven over the years to be fairly reliable in terms of quality. The first movie was solid, while the second was far shakier, but three had a great villain in Philip Seymour Hoffman and 2011’s Ghost Protocol marked a kind of renaissance for the series. Now with the fifth entry in the series, Rogue Nation, the message seems to be, “if ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
