    Mission: Impossible - Fallout


    Tom Cruise is a demon who should donate his body and hair to science when he dies 150 years from now. If you don't have him on your Action Movie Star Mount Rushmore, you're doing it very, very wrong.

    Also, Chris McQuarrie is one of the best action directors alive, and this movie absolutely, vigorously fucks.

    On my first date with my now-wife, I was Gabe.

    Burnham is attempting two insanely tricky moves. 1. An empathetic comedy in which most of the laughs come from awkward teenage behavior, but in which the teens are never mocked. 2. A movie about social media that neither approves of nor condemns its impact on young people. And he sticks both landings beautifully.

    In case you were wondering, this is still one the ugliest, most brainless, most unpleasant, and most fucking terrible movies made in your lifetime.
