    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★★

    Quite possibly the greatest piece of action cinema to grace our screens in the past 30+ years. Combines all elements from the previous installments to create a white-knuckle masterpiece.

Captivated from scene one. I’m so goddamn happy.

    “Its real, honest, raw, and brutal.” 
    Give me a real, genuine reason why you enjoy this that ISN’T the first line i wrote. I’ll wait. 
    The most headache inducing, obnoxiously written, deplorable, sickening thing I’ve ever seen.
    “That’s how life was like for kids like this.” 
    Fuck you, Larry Clark.
