Review – Mission: Impossible – Fallout

Mission: Impossible – Fallout, written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie, is perhaps one of the most well-rounded, exciting offerings in the franchise to date. Despite a runtime that’s bloated and a plot that is your usual uninspired set of events, the film still delivers some of the most thrilling, perfectly executed set-pieces, and an overall atmospheric tone that has this impossible outing feeling far more stylish and engaging than the previous few films. I found myself thoroughly entertained and enjoying every second of the choreographed madness.

Review – The Mummy

The Mummy, directed by Alex Kurtzman, is a film that is the epitome of bland. You are given a story that is delivered in a dull, lazy way, and you are offered characters that are lacking depth or any hint of a reason to care about them.
