Review: Mission: Impossible – Fallout

That was a very fine (and expensive) moustache. Following the events of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Ethan Hunt finds himself in the middle of a plot for global devastation instigated by ex-Mi6 and criminal mastermind Soloman Lane. He and his team have a limited time to stop miniature nuclear weapons from being armed across…

Review: Star Trek Beyond (2D)

Star Trek Beyond, for better or worse, takes Trek’s new action orientation and gives it a more traditional feel. We reunite with the crew halfway through their five year mission into deep space, but while their captain and crew are reluctant and tired from the experience they find themselves in the middle of a war…

Review: Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation proves to be both an exciting action movie and a Bond-esque intelligent thriller at the same time. Thoroughly enjoyed myself! The IMF squad is dissolved into the CIA in the wake of their cowboy, reckless antics that have laid waste to public and private property whenever they are involved. But…

The World’s End is a sad way to end Edgar Wright’s “Cornetto Trilogy”, precious few memorable moments and a lot of repetitive action filling the time. Six men are reunited by the nostalgia infused rantings of a drunken man-child named Gary King and set on an epic pub crawl in their old town from twenty…

Review: Ice Age – Continental Drift (2D)

It is still zany, madcap humour with the pacing of a roller-coaster ride, but at least this time around I actually felt some connection with the characters. This time Manny, Sid,…

Review: Ice Age – Dawn of the Dinosaurs

A colourful distraction, but sorely lacks in any real substance or even peril. That… and what are dinosaurs even doing here?? The film plays out as your typical rescue story; with Manny and Ellie looking to start a family, Sid tries to adopt dinosaur eggs only to be abducted by a Tyrannosaurus Rex. The gang from the…

Saga Review: Mission Impossible

I undertook the mission to review possibly one of the most awkward and least consistent film sagas out there, the Mission: Impossible movies! Asides from some similarities between films three and four, the only recurring element is Tom Cruise himself, and given the original film perhaps catapulted his career you cannot blame him for returning…
