Ranking the Mission Impossible Franchise Including Fallout

Ranking the Mission Impossible Franchise Including Fallout

With the release of Mission Impossible: Fallout, we are officially 6 movies in on a 22 year-long franchise. It is pretty impressive that they have kept the same lead and supporting actors and there’s been no reboot with a new cast or studio. The beauty of the Mission Impossible films is that they continue to get better as they go on. That and Tom Cruise does all of his own epic stunts and that is simply so impressive. Cruise is also somehow getting younger-looking and faster. Must have something to do with that Church of Scientology…. Anyway, below is a list ranking all of the Mission Impossible films from worst to best. Read more

Star Trek Beyond: A hyperactive Mess That Tries Hard & Fails to Deliver [Review]

Star Trek Beyond: A hyperactive Mess That Tries Hard & Fails to Deliver [Review]

I think I might be done with Star Trek.  The reboot universe just isn’t doing it for me, despite the beautiful homoerotic undertones of new Kirk’s relationship with new Spock.   If you’re a fan of the series, particularly the new series, you might want read some other review.  Even Rotten Tomatoes liked this film more than I did.   Star Trek Beyond is a hyperactive mess, it tries so hard and  comes so close and then steadfastly fails to deliver.  There were many many good elements, small things done well, even big things done well, but none of it came together as a whole.   There’s gonna be mild spoilers in this review but nothing you can’t get from just watching the trailer.
