Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation
You sure get your bang for the buck with this one. Tom Cruise, as durable on screen as any movie star could be, and his team deliver an action packed espionage thriller that’s so eye popping you hardly notice you have no idea of why they’re really doing all that stuff.
Perhaps the funniest thing about this silly sequel is the shock and horror some are expressing in its wake. I’m not saying I didn’t cringe watching some of the stuff that happens in this movie; I’m also not saying I didn’t laugh out loud a few times, too.
Do you have to be high in order to laugh here? No, but for a whole lot of this movie it sure feels that way. It’s really too bad MacFarlane relies so much on the weed breaks he slots so often in this movie. Not only do they slow the fun, they feel repetitive and lazy. And, as we have seen in so much of his work, when MacFarlane tries, he really can deliver some very funny and, as is his signature, topically targeted stuff.
There’s no real way to prepare yourself for the flat out marvel of Inside Out, the Pixar release that not only revives the studio’s legacy, but the whole concept of family entertainment. Yes, this gorgeously animated story is based on the lives of the innermost emotions of an 11 year old girl, but its keen perceptions, astonishing concept and goofy humor make this a movie that will dazzle viewers of any age.
Film critics and comedians roast host Betty Jo Tucker and her award-winning movie memoir, Confessions of a Movie Addict. A book giveaway will also be included in this celebration of the memoir’s fourth anniversary as a Kindle E-book. Warren Epstein, Nancy Lombardo, Diana Saenger, James Colt Harrison and A.J. Hakari join in the fun. Warren Epstein, a stand-up comic who now serves as Arts & Culture Editor for the Colorado Springs Gazette, and comedian Nancy Lombardo, host of the hilarious Comedy Concepts show on BlogTalkRadio, represent the world of comedy in this special episode. Movie critics sharing their reactions are film historian James Colt Harrison, entertainment journalist Diana Saenger, and Mad Movie Man A.J. Hakari. The paperback edition of Confessions of a Movie Addict won First Place in the memoir category at the 2012 Royal Dragonfly Book Awards competition. It chronicles a love affair with the cinema that has lasted over half a century. Beginning with a 6-year-old’s fright and fascination while watching Boris Karloff in Frankenstein, the author reveals personal movie-related anecdotes and takes readers behind the scenes of the entertainment industry, sharing her favorite celebrity interviews and revealing a number of hilarious encounters with movie stars and filmmakers. Author’s royalties for this book are donated to The Film Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Martin Scorsese to help with film preservation.
Proving it’s not just looks, but heart, the effectively packaged but very uneven entertainment delivers a few things that are just darn irresistible. There is certainly a whole lot of dry humping, which stands in for choreography. But even if watching that isn’t your cup of tea, you will undoubtedly enjoy the real charm all the guys bring, especially Channing Tatum whose always watchable and slyly eloquent work makes this Mike magical indeed.
Boys will be boys. You were expecting Shakespeare, maybe? Melissa McCarthy in the role she and we have been waiting for.
Don’t sweat it if you’re running a little late for the screening you bought tickets for. Not much happens in this chapter’s first hour or so. And then all hell breaks loose, delivering exactly what you bought those tickets to see.
