Mission Impossible: Fallout Review
And wow! Talk about upping the intense action. You want edge-of-your-seat thrills, this is the film for you. The last thirty minutes will have you gasping. Just when you think all is lost and it’s impossible, it becomes even more impossible.
The stunts are mind blowing. Cruise really did injure himself doing some of his own stunts. The chase involving the motorcycle makes you wonder – did he really just run into that car? The special effects are flawless and you really can’t tell what is a stunt and what involved green screen.
The European settings are beautiful, and when they venture into Asia, it’s even more stunning.
Just about everyone returns for this film, with many familiar faces and a few new ones. Henry Cavill (and his moustache) is a CIA agent who joins them and relative newcomer Vanessa Kirby plays the White Widow.
This series continues to turn in solid films and can keep going for as long as Cruise can pull it off.
Movie Trailers and News
Here are some recent movie trailers:
I am so stoked about this one!
Such a great mix of war and horror!
When this was first announced, I had my doubts, as I really enjoyed the original anime. But it’s shaping up to be one amazing movie.
JoBlo has a weekly feature – The Best Movie You Never Saw.
Last week, it was Ladyhawke.
I did go see it when the film was released in 1985. (It started a crush on Michelle Pfeiffer that lasted for years.) Sadly the film got lost at the box office.
If you’ve never seen it, you need to check it out.
Ready for some Guardians of the Galaxy bloopers?

Another great posting last week! A few people were missing, but it is summer after all.
One member in particular was feeling very down and on the verge of giving up. She really needs some encouragement - Amelia Guilliam.
