Honestly, I have not watched this movie before now because I kept thinking of it as yet another zombie movie. But I finally decided it was time to check it out and damn I’m glad I did! I mean, yes, it’s technically another zombie/infection movie but there is none of this slow moving stumbling zombies who somehow can still catch able bodied uninfected people. This  movie is so fast paced it slaps all of that standard zombie sluggishness away and instead has an infection that rips though people in a matter of seconds and un-dead that can sprint and move as fast as anyone else. Throw all that into an enclosed place such as a train and damn if it isn’t what I have always wanted a zombie movie to be. Continue reading “Train To Busan (2016)”

Please Note: The Following Contains Slight Spoilers (Sorry!)

Ever since watching the trailer I was so keen to see this movie and upon watching last night (thanks to old bosses who have access to streaming links BEST!) I was not disappointed. In three words; This. Movie’s. Awesome!! While the story itself is a bit on the standard futuristic side with automated cars, houses, robotic implants and A.I. essentially controlling everything on a daily basis, there are also elements of ‘days gone by’ throughout is kind of fun. By this I mean the fact that Grey (Logan Marshall-Green) is/was a mechanic and works on muscle cars and his wife doesn’t understand how he likes them because they don’t drive themselves or talk back. Or a later scene that has him paying for something and receives the comment “Ooo paper money, how fun”.

Please Note: The Following May Contain Spoilers (But I Tried Hard Not To)

How does one beat a thrilling stunt like scaling the outside of the Burj Khalifa? Well naturally they decide to hold onto the side of a military plane as it takes off and then continue to hold on and try to access a door while in flight. Hello Tom Cruise and his ability to not only do these stunts but have them totally and utterly work with the Ethan Hunt character and the Mission Impossible series. Also…..what a brilliant way to start off Rogue Nation.
I mean yes it turned into the kidnapping of Ethan Hunt, a valiant escape, the shutting down (again) of the IMF which meant the introduction of Alan Hunley (Alec Baldwin who you know is going to be great in any movie) which then led to a trip to the Opera for an explosive performance….see what I did there 😉. And that, my friends, is only the beginning. Continue reading “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation (2015)”
