Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation
Genre: Action, Adventure, Thriller
Starring:Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg,Jeremy Renner, Ving Rhames
IMDb: 8.4 of 1,984 ratings
Yet another Mission Impossible film where a high trained organization looks to take down IMF and all its top operatives. (Reminds me somewhat of Skyfall (2012).) If you love Tom Cruise playing himself I mean Ethan Hunt. Running, sliding, and jumping all over with crazy stunts and explosions. This is your kind of film. To be fair to the film, Tom Cruise often works very hard on his roles, he does many if not all of his own stunts, he promotes his movies vigorously. The biggest plus of all is that Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol (2011) didn’t suck. Not at all, in fact. I think it is fair to say that if you enjoyed Ghost Protocol, you are going to like Rouge Nation as well.
Therefore I’m making Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation , my pick of the week.
Genre: Adventure, Comedy
Starring: Ed Helms, Cristina Applegate, Chris Hemsworth, Chevy Chase
IMDB: 5.8 of 864 ratings
A “Vacation” movie supposedly if only loosely connected to the Griswalds and their many vacations. That whole storyline got old with Chevy Chase in the role. There is very little about this movie which suggests it will be any better than bad. There are worse movies out this year, but this one certainly isn’t good.
