Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning: Part One vs The 39 Steps: The 39 Impossible Missions

TRCC favourite Tom Cruise returns this episode, as we look at Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning: Part One, the seventh film in the ever growing franchise, and compare it to the 1935 Hitchcock classic The 39 Steps. Trains, chases, handcuffs and the very latest technology pepper the screen with bullet holes in both films, even though they were made 88 years apart. But which film nearly ended Andres’ marriage? Which film features cinema’s most notable milkman? And how does the finest moment from one of these films revolve around one woman’s hairstyle?

Plus we namecheck Rush song ‘Big Money’, question who really wrote ‘Macbeth’, watch Martin Short joking with Selena Gomez, get a soft and squishy new sponsor, discuss Aristotelian story space, and ask: does Venice have a coliseum? And if so, what’s it made of?
