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

Since the late 2000s, Hollywood has been obsessed with movies that deal with the drug cartel. I personally think the genre is beginning to feel over saturated, with a new movie on the subject matter coming out almost every year and of course Netflix’s hit show, Narcos. When I first saw the trailer for American Made, I thought “Oh great, here’s another movie about Pablo Escobar and the Mexican Drug Cartel.” Well after seeing it for myself, I have to say that I’m pleasantly surprised. Tom Cruise is in top form with his role as Barry Seal in this entertaining true story. Read more
Oh The Mummy. When Brendan Fraser did it in 1999, it was a wonderfully camp, kinda horror kinda action thing. This The Mummy is something else. I was expecting to hate the new The Mummy. Flashy high budget remakes never work out well unless they’re musicals with Emma Watson. But I’m here to tell you I actually fully flat-out loved about 75% of it. It was beautiful, the design was lovely, it was beautifully shot, the stunts were amazing and I loved the CGI, it seemed to work well. Of course, it wasn’t enough – the best milkshake in the world is still no good if 25% of it is shit. Read more
In 2014, Universal Pictures attempted to launch their Dark Universe (the name of their Universal Monsters cinematic universe) with Dracula Untold. Unfortunately, the movie received mixed reviews and was underwhelming at the box office. Fast forward three years and Universal is once again trying to launch the Dark Universe with The Mummy. But unlike Dracula Untold, which had its moments, The Mummy, on the other hand, takes poorly setting up a cinematic universe to a whole new level. Bad in almost every facet, it makes you wonder if Universal should just scrap this Dark Universe altogether and save other A-list actors (Javier Bardem and Johnny Depp) from wasting their time with it. By the time the credits roll for The Mummy, you’ll be yearning for another Brendan Fraser-starring Mummy movie instead of where this Dark Universe goes next. Tonally all over the place mixed together with a humdrum story and exhaustive CGI, The Mummy is a conglomerate mess from start to finish.

A new mashup video has combined a massive overload of cool movie characters into one cleverly edited nine-plus minute video that culminates in a crazy action sequence. Blade, Robocop, The Terminator, Tony Montana, Obi-Wan-Kenobi and more make glorious appearances in Hell’s Club from AMDSFILMS.
