I remembering seeing Mission: Impossible in the theater some 12 years ago. (What else was I going to go see? The Pallbearer?) Looking back, I remember two main things about the flick. First – it pushed the envelope action-wise, and left us with at least one iconic spy scene (you know, when Tom Cruise casts his Scientology magic to hover above a shiny kitchen floor.)
Second – I have no idea what the fuck went on in this movie.
If you asked me to explain the plot of the movie now, in 2008, I could probably describe some visuals for you, name drop a few of the actors, and provide you with the most basic of information. I would feel as if I did my job selling the movie to you, but both you and I know, I have no idea what the hell I’m talking about. I’m still not sure if Jon Voight was a good guy or a bad guy. (Based on my Varsity Blues bias, however, I’m going to assume bad guy.)
In essence, this is my opinion when it comes to the once and current NHL.com. It seems like most of the basic things you’d want out of a league’s website are there, and you can get enough information to sound like you know what you’re talking about. Other than that, it’s a backwards-logic, confusing implosion of hockey.
Good news, sports fans. The NHL feels your pain, and has come out with a sequel.
