    Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 30 Jul, 2015

    PG-13 (action and violence, and brief partial nudity)

    The Mission Impossible Franchise is the little engine that could. Who knew that it would be still be going strong after four films in the series?

    The latest addition, Rogue Nation, takes place directly after the events of Ghost Protocol. It finds the Impossible Mission Force (IMF) disbanded, with Tom Cruise and the rest of his team pitted against the Syndicate, a group of highly trained special agents, led by former British…

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 03 Aug, 2014

    There's a lot to like about Dawn. Like a lot of great sequels, the themes are a lot darker than its predecessor, and that in itself lends an emotional weight to the proceedings, adding to the feeling that there is a lot at stake to the events that unfold on-screen.

    There is a more focus on the apes this time around, and the perfect marriage of technical wizardry coupled with nuanced motion performance allows the film-maker to create scenes that…
