This film is without a doubt Marvel’s best film yet. First, let’s applaud the writers here because they took a story and adapted it as best as they could to tie it into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and they were able to do that without tarnishing the story. That right there is fantastic writing. That is spectacular writing and something Warner Bros. and DC could take a page from. This is one of the reason’s Marvel movies are so popular because they bring to life a story and characters while keeping both of those faithful to the original creation. Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. were perfect for their roles. Everyone was perfect for their roles. This is cast who not only understands their characters, but they also understand the character dynamics not just in the story but also regarding each other, and they are friends. Everyone here is friends with someone else, and it is believable not just because they are friends in real like but also because they have such great chemistry with one another.The foundation of the film is solid, and that is the key to a successful movie.

Another Explosive Addition to the MI Series | Review of ‘Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation’

By Cynthia Ayala

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation starring Tom Cruise
Paramount Pictures

Ethan Hunt and his teammates reunite for this pulse-pounding sequel, in which they attempt to take down a secret international organization known as the Syndicate—highly skilled ex-IMF agents who are intent on bringing down their former outfit.

—Daniel Gelb, Rovi

Tom Cruise is still a star. It’s really no surprise why this movie has been doing so well. Let’s face it, even if you aren’t a fan of Tom Cruise, he still has the star power, still puts his best foot forward in order to give the best performance possible. But besides that, the film was not only action packed but it had sexual tension, comedy and action rolled up into one neat little package.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters Gets A Sequel As It Crosses $200 Million Mark

By:  Kristy Puchko With January typically relegated as a dumping ground for movies that the studios can’t figure out, no one at Cinema Blend was looking forward to Tommy Wirkola‘s delayed revisionist fairy tale Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters…except for me. I’d enjoyed the Norwegian director’s bizarre and bloody brand of humor in the Nazi-zombie movie Dead Snow, and I can’t get enough of Jeremy Renner. So, I … Continue reading Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters Gets A Sequel As It Crosses $200 Million Mark

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Rep Denies The Batman Rumor

vBy: Katey Rich When an exciting story breaks as a rumor, with no official studio confirmation or publicists on board, the denial machine tends to kick in quickly. That goes double when the story is broken by online sites like this one, which–sadly– still aren’t considered in the same league as more typical trades like Variety, Hollywood Reporter and Deadline. So even when online reporters … Continue reading Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Rep Denies The Batman Rumor

Jeremy Renner Wasn’t Too Psyched About Hawkeye’s Role In The Avengers

By: Katey Rich It was surprising for a lot of us to go into The Avengers and be introduced to Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, only to have him out of commission for much of the movie. Hawkeye had been teased in a brief scene in Thor as a skilled and lethal S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, but in the opening scene of The Avengers he’s turned into a … Continue reading Jeremy Renner Wasn’t Too Psyched About Hawkeye’s Role In The Avengers

Jeremy Renner Protects Rachel Weisz In Latest The Bourne Legacy Image

By: Sean O’Connell We’re warming up to the idea of Jeremy Renner as the latest trainee in the ultra-secret Bourne spy program. Nothing against Mr. Renner, who was outstanding in such films as The Town and The Hurt Locker (and held his own alongside some titans of personality in The Avengers). Matt Damon just gave Renner some massive shoes to fill. How does Renner get … Continue reading Jeremy Renner Protects Rachel Weisz In Latest The Bourne Legacy Image

Ridley Scott’s The Counselor Getting Attention From Angelina Jolie And 20th Century Fox

Ridley Scott’s next project, The Counselor, may be moving fast, but the talent that it’s collecting is no joke. In addition to the fact that Scott is on-board (a three-time Oscar nominee), the script was written by Cormac McCarthy, Michael Fassbender is attached to star in the titular role, and both Javier Bardem and Jeremy Renner have been gunning for the part of the major … Continue reading Ridley Scott’s The Counselor Getting Attention From Angelina Jolie And 20th Century Fox

Gemma Arterton Goes For Dark Comedy The Wright Girls

Gemma Arterton, who broke out in movies so promisingly with a peppy but brief role as Strawberry Fields in Quantum of Solace, seems to have hit a skid recently. That high-profile role along with her work in the dark indie The Disappearance of Alice Creed seemed to promise huge talent, but she got lost in the background of back-to-back noisy blockbusters Clash of the Titans … Continue reading Gemma Arterton Goes For Dark Comedy The Wright Girls

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol

Thrilling and an excellent action packed adventure.  I absolutely loved this movie.  The acting was spectacular and I loved the chemistry everyone had with one another.  The plot line was also brilliantly designed, I loved it.  This was a non-stop thrill ride I could not get enough of it!  Everything about this movie was awesome and you know what, if you can see it in … Continue reading Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol
