I Know I Keep Saying It but ‘Mission: Impossible-Fallout’ Is a Great Movie

If you’ve read my blog recently you will know that Mission: Impossible-Fallout was my favorite film of 2018 and for good reason. Yes, there were fantastic films like Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity WarSolo: A Star Wars Story and A Quiet Place, but this latest Misson: Impossible movie stood out among its great-movie-brethren because it was, in a word, amazing. From beginning to end this movie sends its viewers on a rollercoaster ride unlike any other with twists and turns, dips and dives, and by the film’s conclusion it leaves you breathless but wanting more.

After obtaining it on Blu-Ray I had a fetish for the film, watching it over and over again because I just couldn’t get enough. I even revisited the two films before it–Ghost Protocol and Rogue Nation–because I was enjoying the franchise so much. Then I got tired and stopped watching it for a little while…until last night.

I was bored, I needed a good movie to watch, and as I rummaged through films on Hulu there was nothing that looked appealing. Bing, goes the lightbulb above my head. I’ll watch Mission: Impossible-Fallout, I say to myself. And I did. And yet again I was blown away.

I know I’ve said it time and time again but this movie is perfect. It really is. Why is it perfect you may ask? Well, I’ll give a quick rundown on the reason why this is clearly one of the best action films of all time.

‘Mission: Impossible 7’ Starts Production in the UK

Mission: Impossible 7 is supposed to come out next Fall but the only way that’s going to happen is if the movie can be filmed. Well, it seems that Tom Cruise and co. have started production on the film and can resume filming in the UK so…oh yeah!

This is very exciting news and I cannot wait to see what Cruise and writer/director Christopher McQuarrie have up their sleeves for the next installment.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.

Ranking the ‘Mission: Impossible’ Films from Worst to Best

I saw Mission: Impossible-Fallout two years ago and I can tell you, it’s still blowing my mind. I’ve seen a LOT of action movies but I’ve never seen an action film quite like this before. It’s astounding to watch and an absolute treat. But this doesn’t dissuade from the other Mission: Impossible movies’ awesomeness. For over two decades Tom Cruise has taken the character, Ethan Hunt, to new locations, new heights (literally,) and new insane obstacles that seem, well, impossible to complete. And yet Ethan Hunt still finds ways to save the world, even if it comes at the last. Possible. Second. It’s the best!

But how do these films rank in this action-packed franchise? That’s what I’m here to share with you. Enjoy!

Mission: Impossible II

I watched Mission: Impossible II a few years ago and while it did possess one of Tom Cruise’s most jaw-dropping stunts in the franchise the movie was really, really bad. There was WAY too much slow-motion and a little bit too much smooching for my liking. It was so bad in fact that I’m kind of surprised they made a third Mission: Impossible film…but I’m glad they did. 🙂

A Movie Ranking: Tom Cruise

Every once in awhile I come up with a new series to share. Today hails another one of those instances and I’m excited to share it with you. Every Thursday I will share with you a specific actor and I will rank the movies that they have starred in. So, because I’ve seen a bunch of films starring Tom Cruise, he is the first actor to be a part of this series. Enjoy!

15. Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Tom Cruise and Cobie Smulders in Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016)

This is the one Tom Cruise movie I have watched that I couldn’t finish. The story was nonengaging and the sexual tension between his character and Cobie Smulders’ character wasn’t making things better.

14. The Mummy

Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella in The Mummy (2017)

The only reason why I have this movie before Jack Reacher: Never Goes Back is because I actually finished it whereas I couldn’t (or didn’t want to) finish Never Go Back. Continue reading A Movie Ranking: Tom Cruise

The Mission Is Far From Over

With Mission: Impossible-Fallout becoming one of the best movies of 2018 it was clear that more films of this delightful franchise would be made but it seems we may be getting more Mission: Impossible films sooner rather than later.

I am very excited to share the thrilling news that both director/writer Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise are indeed returning for two more Mission: Impossible movies which is set to release in the summers of 2020 and 2021. How awesome is that?!

To think that we’ll be getting two! Mission: Impossible movies in the next two-three years is very, very exciting indeed.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.
