Mission: Impossible - Fallout | Average Guy Movie Review

When a mission failure results in three plutonium cores ending up in the wrong hands, the IMF is put under CIA overwatch. Things get even more complicated when it's discovered that that the group looking to acquire the plutonium - known as the Apostles - are the last remaining members of Solomon Lane's (Sean Harris) Syndicate. Their goal, cause a global catastrophe that will bring about a new world order. And the only link to the Apostles and the plutonium that Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his team have to work with is a mysterious arms dealer known as the White Widow (Vanessa Kirby). In the 22 years it has been around, the Mission: Impossible franchise has gone through many guises. Each movie is as different from the last as the men who direct them. Fallout may have the same director as Rogue Nation - a first for the franchise - but Christopher McQuarrie still manages to make this a very different movie. This one's a lot darker than previous instalments, the mission

Simon Pegg Has An Idea When Star Trek 4 Will Shoot

There seems to be a lot going on with Star Trek at the moment! Discovery is about to start a second season, Quentin Tarantino is apparently working on his own Star Trek movie and S.J. Clarkson (Jessica Jones, The Defenders) has taken over directing duties from Justin Lin for the fourth instalment in the Kelvin universe. While appearing on Larry King Now, Simon Pegg was questioned about the upcoming sequel to 2016's Star Trek Beyond: I met the new director, S. J. Clarkson, who is the first female director of a Star Trek film, which is exciting, and she is just brimming with ideas and enthusiasm. I can't wait to work with her. The actor - who plays Scotty - was also asked whether he knew about possible production dates, to which he had this to say: As far as I know, we're sort of in soft prep at the moment. I would imagine next year at some point. Hopefully early next year. It's believed that the story of the new movie will revolve around Chris Hemsworth&

Moustache Trailer Reactions | Mile 22 | Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout It appears that Solomon Lane (Sean Harris) isn't done causing trouble for Ethan Hunt and the IMF. His escape re-ignites the rivalry between the Impossible Mission Force and their sister agency, the CIA. A matter only made worse by Hunt's determination to be the one to bring Lane in. Fallout is said to focus more on Hunt's personal life, which might explain said determination. Michelle Monaghan returns as Ethan's wife Julia. There's a shot in the trailer of the two of them taking part in some sort of wedding ceremony, only for what appears to be a nuclear explosion to be seen in the distance. Now, the Mission: Impossible movies aren't known for their dream sequences but there's a chance that's what this is. All of the team are back bar Jeremy Renner's William Brandt, Renner was busy working on the Avengers sequels. Alec Baldwin is back as the newly crowned Secretary of the IMF and we're introduced

Ready Player One | Average Guy Movie Review

Steven Spielberg brings Ernest Cline's famous novel to life in his first action-adventure movie since 2011's The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. In 2045 the world has become a desolate, overcrowded place. Many try to escape this reality by entering in to the OASIS, a virtual world where pretty much anything is possible...including climbing Mount Everest with Batman. Before he died, the creator of the OASIS - James Halliday (Mark Rylance) - hid three keys within the world. The first person to collect all three keys and unlock the hidden Easter Egg wins ownership of the OASIS and Halliday's considerable fortune. "Gunters" or Egg Hunters like Parzival (Tye Sheridan) and Art3mis (Olivia Cooke) all have their own reasons for devoting their lives to solving their puzzle. But they're not the only ones searching for the keys to the kingdom, Nolan Sorrento (Ben Medelsohn), CEO of Innovative Online Industries (IOI) has dedicated vast company resource

Paul | Average Guy Movie Review | Movierob's Genre Grandeur

This month I was asked to choose the genre for Movierob's Genre Grandeur. Having studied the list of genres that have gone before, I realised there was one that hadn't been chosen...road trip movies. There are so many great road trip movies; Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Smokey and the Bandit, Thelma and Louise, Midnight Run, Due Date, Fanboys, The Hitman's Bodyguard, Dumb and Dumber, and even one called Road Trip.  Most of them involve crazy adventures, insane stunts, a lot of bickering and laughing and many modes of transport. Although I don't think any of them ever found an alien, which is exactly what happens in the movie I've chosen to review; "Paul".  After visiting Comic Con, Graeme (Simon Pegg) and Clive (Nick Frost) travel across the US visiting famous UFO related locations. Along the way they pick up Paul, an alien on the run from the government, who they have to help get home before the "Big Guy" catches up with them.
