Mission: Impossible Fallout Is A Film To Add To Your Bluray Collection

Mission: Impossible Fallout was one of the biggest films of the summer, and proved that once again Tom Cruises’ insane ability to perform his own stunts is a box office draw. The sixth film in the franchise is also the series’ first sequel, in that the villain from the previous flick returned to cause even more chaos. The shocking thing about the series is that it doesn’t appear to be losing any steam either, and that the films will more than likely continue beyond this one. For collectors of blurays, the series is also a fantastic pick-up.

Bruce Willis’ Death Wish Is Exactly What You Would Expect

Let’s be honest, when you go to see a Bruce Willis movie you pretty know know what you are getting yourself into from the start. He’s an action star, and as such he’s never really pushed the envelope too far when it comes to his choices of roles. In fact most of the time you don’t even remember his character’s name (his Die Hard character of John McClane being one of the few exceptions), and you just think of his character as Bruce Willis. Death Wish is his latest film, and well, it is what it is.
