This past Sunday I finally got the chance to see Mission: Impossible-Fallout and I was beyond excited. The critics were claiming it to be one of the greatest action movies ever made and, surprisingly, the Rotten Tomatoes score was gradually climbing over the past week. I had to see what all the praise was about. I can honestly tell you it’s true. Mission: Impossible-Fallout, in my humble opinion, is the greatest action movie that has ever hit the big screen.
Literally from beginning to end this film delivers thrills and suspenseful moments left and right while still being able to provide an understandable and compelling story. Think of all of the great action movies you’ve ever seen (Speed, Mad Max: Fury Road, Die Hard, and The Fugitive, just to name a few.) This movie is better than all of them combined!
I mean this movie has edge-of-your-seat, heart pounding, chill-inducing, giddy-laughter creating, eye-widening, I-can’t believe-this-movie-is-this-good kind of action in it.

One of the funnest things about watching a Star Wars movie is the action. No matter how lackluster a Star Wars film may be the action is always entertaining. With ten movies now in the franchise which films reign supreme in the action department and which movies don’t? That’s what I’m here to share with you. Enjoy!
10. A New Hope
I love A New Hope because it’s the first Star Wars movie ever made. If it wasn’t for A New Hope being such an amazing film when it came over forty years ago the Star Wars franchise probably wouldn’t exist right now. But while A New Hope is undoubtedly a great movie the action is about as boring as it gets in comparison to the other nine Star Wars films. I mean, it has the slowest lightsaber duel ever created. I rest my case.

Four years ago Edge of Tomorrow premiered in theaters around the world. The trailers and commercials didn’t excite me and I almost didn’t want to see the film. But my family and I decided to take a chance on it and so we went to see it over Maleficent which had also just recently come out. It was one of the greatest movie surprises I’ve ever had.
Edge of Tomorrow is a classic alien invasion story with a Groundhog Day twist as one man (played by none other than Tom Cruise) is forced to relive a traumatic day that leads to a horrendous battle over and over and over again. He acquires the help of an acclaimed warrior, Rita Vrataski, and together they are dealt with the task of defeating the aliens before they take over the world.
It’s an action-packed science fiction film unlike any other alien invasion movie I’ve ever seen and clearly one of my Tom Cruise favorites. If you liked War of the Worlds this film will utterly blow your mind.
It did so well in fact that now a sequel, which will be helmed by the same director, Doug Liman, is in the works. But here’s the catch. The sequel is actually going to be a prequel that once again features Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt kicking some more alien booty. Um…awesome!
How it’s going to work, I have no idea, but Doug Liman has said that he intends this movie to change the way we view sequels. That sounds pretty cool and I can’t wait to see it. 🙂
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
Last night after watching the premiere of American Ninja Warrior I was bored and desperate for a new movie to watch and so I went browsing on Netflix and I ultimately came across two Netflix Original Movies that were not only really fun to watch but actually very entertaining as well. So for all of you fellow Netflix subscribers and movie lovers I’m here to provide you spoiler-free reviews on these two original films.
True Memoirs of an International Assassin
If you love action movies and you love the comedian, Kevin James, this is a film worth watching for so many reasons. One, it’s got humor which is always a plus. Secondly, it’s surprisingly enjoyable if you’re just bored and needing a decent movie to satiate the new movie thirst. And three, it keeps you on your toes from beginning to end.
Kevin James’ character, Sam, is an aspiring author who writes a fictional story about an assassin and his top secret missions but when his publisher takes his story and spruces up the tale by tweaking the title and calling it “True” Memoirs of an International Assassin rather than its original title (Memoirs of an International Assassin) a lot of trouble and unwanted attention comes Sam’s way and he partakes in a non-stop adventure that’s truly exciting from beginning to end.
It’s also an entirely family-friendly movie with the exception of a bit of cursing and some violence but besides that there’s nothing inappropriate about this film whatsoever which is always refreshing. What would I give the movie, you might ask? I’d give 3.5 out of 5 stars and 84 out of a 100. It wasn’t the greatest action movie I’ve ever seen but it was very, very enjoyable indeed. Definitely take a look at it if you ever get the chance.

Every few years there’s a new Mission: Impossible movie to enjoy and this summer’s sixth entry into the spy thriller franchise looks to be the most action-packed installment yet. Here’s the trailer.
I saw Mission: Impossible-Rogue Nation in the movie theaters three years ago and it was positively awesome. This film seems to have taken that sense of exhilarating action to the next level as this trailer contains nonstop action throughout its two minute and thirty-three second run time and that is super exciting. It’s summer time and that means it’s blockbuster season and who doesn’t love thrilling blockbusters? I know I do.
I also like that this trailer provided a better insight into the new characters such as Henry Cavill’s CIA agent, August Walker, who is supposedly the main villain in this film. (Ha! That evil Superman theory is going to come true after all. Lol.)
And it seems that the stakes are kicked up yet another notch as Ethan Hunt’s arch nemesis, Solomon Lane, returns to enact his revenge. *rubbing my hands* Exciting.
All in all, this was a great trailer and now I’m beyond excited to see this film. Especially in IMAX. It’s going to be 100% amazing.
Here’s the official poster for the movie and I love it. It perfectly fits the tone of the movie and it’s just a well configured layout of a poster. It actually may be my favorite poster of the franchise so far which is definitely a good sign for the movie. Did I mention I can’t wait to see this film? 🙂
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
The first time I was ever introduced to the Jurassic franchise was in the Spring of 2013. They had brought Jurassic Park back to the movie theaters in IMAX and my Daddy took me and my sister to see it. I had never seen Jurassic Park before then. I only knew that it was a famous movie about dinosaurs so I had no clue the ride I was in for. I walked out of that movie theater positively horrified and exhilarated at how incredible that film was. The dinosaurs looked real despite the fact that it was a 90s’ film. The music, composed by John Williams, was incredible. And my overall experience was just, in a word, fantastic.
Since watching Jurassic Park I have become a legitimate fan of the franchise. I’ve seen The Lost World: Jurassic Park which I really enjoyed and I’ve seen Jurassic World and now, with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, a new installment for the franchise is close to roaring into theaters and I’m legitimately excited for it. But the question is, will Jurassic World be a fantastic movie or will it be a disappointment like its predecessor was? Well, that’s what I’m here to talk about and I hope you enjoy.

Baby Driver was one of the best critiqued films this past summer and so that intrigued me highly on whether I wanted to see this movie or not. Well, I literally just finished watching the movie and I have to say, it was an impressive film that I had wished I had seen in the movies. The music was impeccable and had me bumping my foot, the action was engaging and intense, but what really shined about this movie was the overall story.
Baby, for that is the main character’s name, is a man who’s burdened with this constant ring in his ear after he experienced a traumatic car crash that happened to kill both of his parents when he was a child. To deal with the constant ring he listens to music all day, every day. When he was probably no more than eleven years old he stole the car of this rich guy, (Kevin Spacey’s character, Doc) and to pay him back he had to be the driver for all of the robberies Doc planned.
