Mission: Impossible – Fallout

Hard to believe the first one of these came out in 1996. All of my current students, for instance, were born after that.

Glad they brought back Rebecca Ferguson, a highlight for me of the previous film, 2015’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Stunts, cinematography, locations, Cruise intensity — all look top notch.

Opens July 27, 2018.


Saw it last night. Liked it a lot. More than I thought I would. Did a little Twitter thread about it.

Rolexes in Movies

Loved this ad that first aired during the Oscars.

Conspicuous by its absence is James Bond’s Rolex from Dr No. (pictured below, more info) but there’s never enough time for everything, is there?
