  • 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' Review: Cruise Turns It Up to 11
    The best thing about “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” is that we now have final confirmation that Academy Award-winner Mel Gibson has been blackballed by Hollywood, not for the vile statements he made about Jews, but for producing “The Passion of the Christ.” Confirmation comes from Alec Baldwin’s addition to the “Mission: Impossible” franchise, this despite the equally vile (and more frequent) statements the Oscar-less actor has made about gays. The second best thing about “M:I5” is star and producer Tom Cruise, who at 53 still has the physique of a welterweight champ, the drive of an actor desperate to prove himself, and movie star chops like few others. This latest chapter in the ongoing adventures of Ethan Hunt and his Impossible Mission Force (IMF)  isn’t as deliriously action-packed as the last two, but the melodramatic emotional missteps of chapter two are recycled, only this time to great effect. After two decades of standing helplessly and jealously by as IMF successfully saved the world, CIA director Alan Hunley (homophobe Alec Baldwin) has had enough. Before a closed Senate Committee, Hunley (homophobe Alec Baldwin) exploits IMF’s extra-legal methods (burgling the CIA) and missteps (blowing up the Kremlin) to get the division

  • The Best and Worst Movies of 2015
    (”Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation” is briefly mentioned in this.)
    Because I am lucky enough to live in the sticks of North Carolina, unlike my Los Angeles days, I don’t see everything because most of the smaller Oscar-bait movies fail — with good reason — to make their way out into the Real World. Which is a good thing because most of those movies are pretentious pails of crap. If you think I’m at all disappointed that I missed the chance to watch Eddie Remayne pretend to be a Danish Girl — yeah, no. The worst movies in the world are those Hollywood makes for themselves, and life is just too short. That’s the long way of telling you that my list of the best and worst movies of 2015 is based on what I had the opportunity to see, which was primarily the mainstream commercial stuff, which are the movies I usually enjoy the most anyway. By the time the Oscars rolls around,  with the help of the miracle of pay-per-view, I’ll catch up on the pretentious pails, but in the meantime, here’s the rundown. Overall, this was not a great year, even for commercial movies. Last year we got “American Sniper,” “Captain America: The Winter Solder,” “X-Men: Days

Plugged In 9
Focus on the Family



(Reviewers' Site/Bio)

  • Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation
    Action/AdventureDrama We hope this review was both interesting and useful. Please share it with family and friends who would benefit from it as well.Movie ReviewAnd you think your job is hard. Consider poor Ethan Hunt. For the last 19 years or so, Mr. Hunt has punched a time card for the Impossible Missions Force. Is your job stressful? Try infiltrating the Kremlin. Physically demanding? Well, at least you don't have to scale the tallest building in the world. Work long hours? Yeah, Ethan spent a few years of unpaid overtime languishing in a Russian prison. He's not just a loyal company man, he's like a bipedal Lassie, slavishly devoted to his governmental masters no matter how often they throw themselves (or him) down the well of international intrigue. And what does Ethan get for all his trouble? Disavowed. Blackballed. Hunted down like a dog. This guy's gone dark more often than Breaking Bad, been on the lam more than a veteran mutton buster. He might as well have business cards printed up that read Professional Scapegoat. But in spite of all his troubles, has Ethan ever updated his résumé on Monster Jobs? Had a friendly sit-down with his hiring manager at Starbucks? No. The government types he works for may demand much from him. They may abuse him. They may even shoot at him. But Ethan knows that they need him. As long as there's an IMF to work for, Ethan Hunt will be there to serve and to spy and to— Oh, what's that? You say the IMF is shutting down? Some sort of cost-cutting measure, you say? Lack of congressional oversight? Capitol Hill is getting tired of national landmarks exploding every time Ethan gets near them? Well, hey. Organizations fold all the time, right? Even Plugged In could go away as early as next week. In this uncertain economy, it happens to a lot of ventures, and at least Ethan won't have to worry about that guy Adam from two cubicles over stealing his peanuts anymore. Maybe Ethan can take a cushy desk job at the FBI or the CIA or … Oh. Seems the CIA thinks Ethan Hunt is a big ol' liability. Again. They're hoping to arrest him and maybe kill him. Again. Can't exactly launch a new profile on LinkedIn with that hanging over your head. Yes, once again, Ethan Hunt has become the hunted. But even if his employers aren't that supportive, this is a guy with connections, and he can still corral a few old workmates to do some hunting of his own. It's a dirty, thankless, dangerous and—at the moment—illegal job. But somebody's gotta do it.Positive ElementsDid I mention yet that Ethan Hunt is super-duper loyal to his country, even when his country doesn't return the favor? Yeah, that's still the case. Even when given direct orders to stop his constant do-gooding, Ethan will still do good, save lives and protect whole civilizations against impossible odds. It's, like, his mission or something. He's hardly alone, though. Mission: Impossible has always been about teamwork, and a number of folks help Ethan on his quixotic journey and regularly save one another's lives. Two M:I-familiar faces, Benji and Luther, work on the tech side of things. William Brandt again serves faithfully as a sort of Ethan-lite. And then there's Ilsa, a mysterious agent whom Ethan meets. While her motives aren't exactly clear at the outset, there's no question she saves Ethan's life a time or two.Spiritual ContentSexual ContentIlsa strips off her top, showing her bare back and the side of her breast to the camera. Audiences also see her wearing bikinis and slinky, leg-baring gowns. Ethan sometimes goes without a shirt. A small picture of a woman in lingerie is visible in the background at one point.Recommended ResourceA Chicken's Guide to Talking Turkey With Your Kids About SexKevin LemanEven the bravest parents feel timid about discussing sex with their 8- to 14-year-olds! This resource offers reassuring, humorous, real-life anecdotes along with reliable information to help you with this challenging task.Buy NowViolent ContentWhat's impossible in this fifth Mission: Impossible movie? To get through it without watching scads of violence. Though the fights sequences and death scenes aren't presented in particularly graphic ways, there are plenty of both. Perhaps the most harrowing fight involves Ilsa and a male opponent. Both take out knives and get in a few successful slices (leading to painful grunts and squeals). Somebody's killed with a stab to the chest and a break of the neck. Frenetic flying fists, feet and blunt instruments take center stage more than once. (One man, for instance, conks his head on a massive pipe.) Several people are shot—sometimes with drugged-up darts, sometimes with full-on lethal bullets. Combatants die in a car explosion. Bad guys strap explosives to one of Ethan's teammates, threatening to kill boatloads of folks. A woman is executed. During a wild car chase, several motorcyclists are involved in (presumably) deadly crashes, sometimes involving exploding bikes. People are rendered unconscious by gas. Ethan, captured by evildoers, is prepped to be tortured. A man ominously known as the Bone Doctor punches his chained-up prisoner several times in the gut and once in the face before picking up a small bone saw, apparently getting ready to live up to his name. Ethan's wild and crazy encounter with the exterior of an airplane leads to bumps and bruises. A car crashes, tumbling end over end—surely a life-threatening accident had it not been wedged into a Mission: Impossible movie. A guy gets thwacked several times by machinery while underwater and is nearly drowned. (Indeed, he needs to be revived via shock paddles). Benji imagines being shocked by security devices and dragged off to prison. People fall from high places and are in a constant state of mortal danger. Threats are made. Corpses are seen.Crude or Profane LanguageThree or four s-words. Two or three uses of "d--n" and "h---." Jesus' name is abused once.Drug and Alcohol ContentWe see glasses of wine.Other Negative ElementsAs one might expect from a spy movie, there's a whole lotta lying and subterfuge going on here—sometimes for noble reasons, sometimes not. We hear references to gambling. Ethan flouts authority (though arguably with good reason).ConclusionThe Mission: Impossible franchise is a bit like a favorite pair of jeans. It's comfortable, familiar and seems to get better with age. Tom Cruise starred in his first M:I movie 19 years ago. Now on his fifth, the action star (who famously does his own stunts) seems to be simultaneously looking forward and back. Rogue Nation certainly boasts a bit of retro charm, with some of the settings exuding an almost Hitchcockian vibe and action sequences tipping the hat to old James Bond. Even the content quotient feels a bit retro, with foul language, sex and violence coming in at a restrained level for a 2015 actioner. It may even be marginally less violent and profane than your newest favorite superhero movie. This is clearly meant to be a summertime romp, not a bleak, gritty grind. That doesn't mean Rogue Nation is without its rogues. We see some gratuitous skin, hear a few unnecessary swears and, certainly, watch loads of folks die in violent ways. This Mission, should you choose to accept it, can be exciting and fun. But it can be dangerous and perhaps damaging, too. And unlike Ethan's job, going to a movie won't save the world.Pro-social ContentObjectionable ContentSummary AdvisoryPlot SummaryChristian BeliefsOther Belief SystemsAuthority RolesProfanity/ViolenceKissing/Sex/HomosexualityDiscussion TopicsAdditional Comments/NotesEpisode Reviews]]>

  • Best Mission Yet is One You Should Choose to Accept
    Movies DVD Release Date: December 15, 2015Theatrical Release Date: July 31, 2015Rating: PG-13 (sequences of action and violence, and brief partial nudity)Genre: Action, Adventure, ThrillerRun Time: 131 minutesDirector: Christopher McQuarrieCast: Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Ving Rhames, Alec Baldwin, Sean Harris, Simon McBurney Has it occurred to anyone else that "Mission: Impossible" clearly isn't? After all, the redoubtable Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise, Rock of Ages) and his team continue to complete missions, however "impossible" they may appear. Their latest escapade—taking down the mysterious "Syndicate"—could prove the exception to that rule... but nobody seriously believes that, do they? It doesn’t matter: this installment in the series is funny, fast-paced, clever, packed with amazing stunts and heart-pounding moments. It is, I daresay, the best Mission: Impossible yet and definitely one you should choose to accept. CrosswalkMovies.com: from crosswalkmovies on GodTube. Unless you've recently been living under a rock you have no doubt seen the 'Ethan hanging from a plane' scene. (Cruise filmed that stunt himself, dangling from a moving airplane for eight takes). That riff is even more entertaining in the movie and just one of many impressive feats of almost super-human skill. And it's not just Ethan who gets to strut his secret agent stuff; the beautiful and elusive Ilsa (Rebecca Ferguson, Hercules) has mad acrobatic combat skills as well. Even better, the film pokes fun at some of the outrageous feats its characters perform (and have performed in previous films), giving the audience permission to laugh along. Surprisingly, there's more to the movie than action sequences; there are also some nicely-plotted twists and turns. The story zips along, bouncing around the globe, occasionally dashing down highly entertaining rabbit trails, and before you know it we're zooming toward the big finish.SEE ALSO: Ghost Protocol Is a Mission Worth Accepting googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('gpt-ad-1'); }); To take down the shadowy Syndicate, the MI team will need all the resources they can find. Unfortunately, there's a bit of a departmental crisis going on back in DC as the CIA is on a mission of its own: to disband the rival IMF. Meanwhile, there's a kerfuffle at Ethan's point-of-contact and with the rest of the team dealing with a very hostile takeover, resources are going to be hard to find. But if you're going to bet on one man to basically save the world, Ethan Hunt is a pretty safe bet. Of course, he won't really have to do it alone. Simon Pegg (The World's End) is always fun to watch and as twitchy, hilarious Benji—the brilliant but often clueless techie genius of the bunch. He's the perfect sidekick to Hunt's confident (some might say cocky) hero. William Brandt (Jeremy Renner, The Avengers: Age of Ultron) lends his ruggedly handsome profile and earnest character to the cause. Even Luther (Ving Rhames, Surrogates) is back, if somewhat reluctantly. Together they will do whatever it takes, however impossible it may appear. Capturing all those chases, fights, races, and explosions in such stylish fashion can't have been easy but they're all fun to watch, so kudos to Director Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher). The sound design is fabulous, too. Mission: Impossible has arguably the best theme music ever and this time it's paired with Puccini's operatic masterpiece Turandot (which is also an important part of the plot). Strains of Nessun Dorma are woven through the relentless MI melody but at crucial moments the background music disappears into silence, only occasionally punctuated by labored breathing. It's a nice effect. So, is Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation fun for the whole family? That depends on your family; mine would love it. This being an action movie, there is a significant amount of violence, but it's relatively bloodless. "She tried to shoot me!" Benji complains at one point. Well, she's not the only one and besides, "That doesn't make her a bad person," Ethan replies. There's hand-to-hand combat, brief torture, shooting, explosions, a knife fight... the usual kind of thing. The snappy script includes only a small amount of profanity and it went by so fast my companion didn't notice any. There's no sex, no potty humor, and only brief glimpses of partial nudity. I certainly wouldn't encourage anyone to emulate the characters' driving habits, but they make for exciting chases.SEE ALSO: Weak Plot Works Against "Mission: Impossible 3" I did try to think of something I didn't like about the movie but... that appears to be impossible. CAUTIONS (may contain spoilers): googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('gpt-ad-2'); }); if (gptClientWidth >= 992 && gptClientWidth <= 1000000) googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('gpt-ad-3'); }); Drugs/Alcohol: Some drinking, several people shot with dart guns and injected with potions. Language/Profanity: Not much and it goes by so fast my companion missed it entirely. A couple of outbursts of he** and sh**, a g-d, and Jesus's name as an exclamation (the speaker trails off halfway through "Chri…" Sex/Nudity: Ilsa wears a bikini and an alluring evening gown; after a swim we see her from the back in her underwear as she's changing clothes. Ethan is shown shirtless. Violent/Frightening/Intense: The whole thing is pretty intense, but that's part of its charm. People fight and some are killed; guns, knives, fists, explosives, and some truly impressive leg moves are all used to take down opponents. It's implied that innocent people have died. Cars and motorcycles are driven with no regard for safety of riders or other (innocent) drivers. Publication date: July 30, 2015 SEE ALSO: James Bond Spoofs Have Never Been Funnier Than Spy ]]>

  • Why 'Spectre' Gets a 'B'
    (”Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation” is briefly mentioned in this.)
    Klavan On The Culture var dataLayer = window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer || []; dataLayer.push({ 'videoName': 'SPECTRE - Final Trailer (Official)', 'videoType': 'Curated' }); In the new James Bond film Spectre, 007 is given the mission of rescuing Hollywood from a month of dismal box office. At that, he succeeds. As an entry in the long-running franchise, however, the movie is only so-so. There are good action set pieces and interesting moments throughout, but they don't come together to form a coherent whole. The third act makes no sense whatsoever. And, in keeping with his statements about how sick he is of the role, Daniel Craig — who did a spectacular job in the last good Bond film, Casino Royale — seems to play each scene here as if he's wondering what's for dinner.But more than that, as with last summer's Mission: Impossible -- Rogue Nation (a much better movie) -- and with the last three Star Wars flicks (much worse), Spectre suffers as a result of the deterioration of American values since the original source material was made.The Bond of Dr. No, like the Ethan Hunt of the original MI TV series, like the Luke Skywalker of the first Star Wars trilogy, knew what he was fighting for and what he was fighting against. The story — all those stories — took place with the presence of the Soviet Union and Red China in every viewer's mind. We knew they were slave states who wished to impose their brand of slavery — called communism then, progressivism now — on the entire world. We knew we needed brave men and strong ideas to defeat them.Where oh where could we find such villains today? Who holds to a slave philosophy now? Who wants to impose that philosophy on the rest of us? Why are they evil? Why should we oppose them? class="pages"> https://pjmedia.com/andrewklavan/2015/11/10/why-spectre-gets-a-b/ previous Page 1 of 2 next   ]]>
