I was happily shocked by an extended opera scene in the new Tom Cruise thriller, “Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation.” Early in the movie, we meet, or meet again, Benji Dunn, the charmingly jumpy tech whiz of the Impossible Mission Force. He is first seen playing the video game Halo on his computer terminal while blasting the “Marriage of Figaro” overture on headphones.
Hm. Might this get me to see a Tom Cruise movie?
Doubtful, but I’m tempted!
