REVIEW: Mission: Impossible – Fallout (2018)

Theatrical Release Poster – Paramount Pictures

The following is a review of Mission: Impossible – Fallout – Directed by Christopher McQuarrie.

The first James Bond novel was published in 1953. Nine years later, Sean Connery first played the central character on the big screen. Since then we’ve seen twenty-five Eon Productions Bond-films. In those films, six different actors have played Agent 007 to varying success. So far, all spy franchises have lived in the shadow of Ian Fleming’s creation. Every actor who becomes a leading spy character has been compared to Connery, Moore, Brosnan, Craig, and so on and so forth. Continue reading “REVIEW: Mission: Impossible – Fallout (2018)”

I know I’m a little bit late to it, but I’m finally seeing Mission: Impossible – Fallout in theaters today. So, last night I decided to marathon the five films that came before it.

Box Office Predictions – Weekend of September 18, 2015

Box Office Prediction

It’s been a tough and slow few weeks of box office, but this should all change now. Americans are seeing the first movie of the Oscar season – Black Mass. But the Johnny Depp-led crime flick isn’t a certain weekend winner, as the Maze Runner-franchise reveals its second installment.

Box Office Predictions – Weekend of September 4, 2015

Box Office Prediction

Straight Outta Compton got its third win in a row. Meanwhile the Christian drama War Room came out of nowhere to take the 2nd spot on last weekend’s top five. Now, can Robert Redford’s A Walk In The Woods challenge for a top five spot, or is it knocked out by last week’s new entries? Continue reading “Box Office Predictions – Weekend of September 4, 2015”

Box Office Predictions – Weekend of August 28, 2015

Box Office Prediction

The following is a new weekly post on I’m Jeffrey Rex, wherein Jeffrey predicts the coming weekend numbers at the box office for North America.

Straight Outta Compton should get another easy box office win, thus getting its third weekend win in a row. The only notable new entries this weekend are No Escape and We Are Your Friends, and neither of those films look that great. Looks like another post-summer low box office weekend. Continue reading “Box Office Predictions – Weekend of August 28, 2015”
