There aren’t many franchises as consistently great as the Mission Impossible series. Each film has had it’s own unique flavor to this point, and while some sequels have faired better than others, the series on the whole has managed to remain fresh for nearly two decades. Rogue Nation, the latest installment, is different in the sense that it doesn’t feel like a film that is reinventing the franchise once again or pushing any envelopes. Instead, Rogue Nation excels at expertly executing on a somewhat familiar story. Perhaps it’s lacking in innovation, but this also might be the most well rounded Mission Impossible film to date.
There is just something charming about Amy Schumer. While I understand she isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, she really doesn’t give a damn one-way or another what we think, and I guess that’s just the type of thing I like about her. Trainwreck serves as the outspoken comedian’s debut in a leading role, and if it’s any indication we’ll hopefully be seeing more of Schumer on the big screen in the future.
