    Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol

    ★★★½

    100% entertaining and great to look at with a breakneck speed.

    The sandstorm is visually stunning. Reminded me of Blade Runner 2049 even.

    Those opening credits are insanity by the way!

    This film obviously looked great, obviously has stellar dialogue and obviously has awesome performances. Scene after scene of trademark Tarantino suspense building until an explosion of spectacular violence breaks out, just to start building up to another.

    Pretty much loved everything about it.

    Blade Runner 2049

    Hard to put a number down for this one. There's so much to love but also some elements I didn't like or made me need to rewatch this and the original to make sure. 

    In a lot of ways I might like it more than the original. They found a great way to make Gosling's character a lot more emotionally resonant than Deckard in the first. In other ways it confused me about Deckards relationships in the first and made…
