Mission: Impossible – Fallout

It’s time to take a look at the latest addition to one of Tom’s most well-known and well-loved franchises, Mission: Impossible!   We’re huge fans of the Mission series, and Fallout has the honor of being our first ever review of a Mission movie!

Smartass Summary: Tom Cruise jumps out of a spaceship.

Slightly less smartass summary: Ethan Hunt has absolutely NO.  DAMN. CHILL.

Ok ok, REAL summary:  The IMF saves the day, despite the CIA, the Bad Guys, and the forces of gravity!!

Overall opinion: Buttered Popcorn is of two minds about this movie!  On the one hand, we enjoyed the intense action sequences.  The stunts were heart-pounding, and (spoiler alert) the bad guy went down hard, as well he should have!  But on the other hand, we have a few issues with the plot, and a few more issues with some character motivations, that clouded our ability to fully enjoy this film.  That’s why our First Impressions post included the fact that we noticed some things that didn’t quite work, right at our first viewing. But first, we’ll talk about about the parts we liked best about the film!

Tom Cruise Tuesday: First Impressions – Mission: Impossible – Fallout

Happy Tom Cruise Tuesday! It’s our favorite day of the week! The day we set aside time to celebrate our favorite person EVAR, Tom Cruise!

This week, we want to show our love for Tom by discussing our first impressions of Tom’s latest release: Mission:Impossible- Fallout!

You’ve seen the critics rave about Fallout for weeks, and what can we say? They’re not wrong! While we don’t agree that Fallout surpasses all the other Mission movies (in our humble true and correct opinion, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol still holds the title for THE BEST Mission movie of all time. Yeah, we said it), we still had a rollicking good time watching Chris McQuarrie put poor Ethan through his paces in another epic installment!

If you haven’t seen this movie yet, what are you waiting for????? Go out there and FIX that, stat!

Go on. We’ll wait.

It was great, right?? We told you so. Now clicky-click that link down below and check out our first impressions of M:I-6!
