    ★★★★

    Kids liked it a lot. “How could they get such good film quality in 2009!?”

  • Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★½

    Amazing action sequences. Five stars on all of those. Especially knowing how much Tom Cruise does himself. Flying a helicopter himself?! Insane. Makes it really special and I think, especially the helicopter sequence, worthy of a rewatch. 

    Some people look the same and I can’t tell the difference. 


    The film itself though: okay. I didn’t enjoy it as much as Rogue Nation. Alec Baldwin always looks to me like he’s acting like he’s acting. Tom Cruise was great, and classic. But make the next one 100% more Rebecca Ferguson.

    ★★★★★

    I've bought the DVD, the soundtrack, watched the making of and dreamed about Kelly McGillis more than one time. The film that did more for Air Force enlistments than anything else will do the same for you.

    If you've ever been holding on too tight with a bunch of oiled up dudes then you will lose your edge over Top Gun again and again.

    ★★½

    What did I learn from Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol? Let me see. There are a lot of BMWs in Dubai and Mumbai (coincidence?) and they have safety features you can trust, and cool start controls, and cool wheels and cool grill-lights, what? I haven't seen such gross product placement in a while. Oh yeah, and iPhones. iPhones are cool, iPads are cool, apparently USB cables are cool; but iPhones in rubberised cases? I guess they might knock them around…
