Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation

0

We’ve got two new movies this week. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation and Vacation. Mission: Impossible cleaned up during the weekend box office bringing in $58 million. Both Sean and Josh loved Mission: Impossible, they claim it’s the best action movie of the year. There’s no way that’s true because Mad Max Fury Road came out this year but whatever. Vacation really upset Sean. I personally had no problem with it. It’s not as memorable as its predecessors, but to me it’s hard to say something is or is not funny. If it’s funny to somebody then it’s funny. You can’t define funny.

Our Undisputed Classic is National Lampoon’s Vacation

In 1985 Fright Night, Weird Science, Sesame Street Presents Follow that Bird

Avengers Age of Ultron, Chuck Norris & Bruce Jenner

Avengers Age of Ultron has finally been released. Josh and I watched it with a very critical eye. The action was unintelligible, the dialogue was not strong, the story line connecting all these movies together has major holes in it. Then Sean, our resident film critic managed to watch the movie for what it was, a summer blockbuster that is a lot of fun. You say tomato I say…this doesn’t work as well when you type it out.

News:

Nathan Rabin has been canned by The Dissolve
Robert Downey Jr shits on indie film.
Mae Whitman passed over in “Independence Day 2”
The Baltimore Riots and “The Purge”

Our Does it Hold Up segment was inspired by Bruce Jenner. We took a look at Hedwig and the Angry Inch and The Crying Game. Hedwig and the Angry Inch is truly one of the great rock musicals of all time while the offensive marketing campaign really ruins The Crying Game experience.

1985 – Chuck Norris is Chuck Norris in Code of Silence. But it would have been awesome if he was in Gymkata. Anthony Edwards made Gotcha and Johnny Depp did Private Resort.

Trailers:

Ted 2
Strangerland
Fifty Shades Darker
The Irrational Man
