Jeremy Renner is having a hell of a year – He saw it in with Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, owned it by being a member of The Avengers, and will end the summer as Matt Damon’s replacement in The Bourne Legacy. Even Liam Neeson will have a problem topping that line-up and he’s in virtually everything. The question is, though, why should we care about the new Bourne film?

It was a long wait (over four months) but last week we finally got the third and final The Dark Knight Rises trailer.

Okay, I’m gonna come right out and say it – I don’t have a lot of love for the Mission Impossible series. If it’s action-packed espionage spy thrillery stuff I want, then I’ll watch the Bourne trilogy. I don’t think I’ve seen the first M.I. film since I rented it on VIDEO. Mission Impossible 2 soiled my eyes and mind with its awfulness. Heck, I haven’t even bothered catching up with Mission Impossible 3. So, why the heck am I reviewing Ghost Protocol? Because I love you, that’s why. Read more »

Was the first film any good? I dunno, I haven’t seen it. You know, Guy Ritchie, Jude Law, it sounds… awful. But, hey, it got a sequel so it can’t be all bad. Oh, and this one has my 2010 crush Noomi Rapace in it, so maybe I’ll go see it after all. Let’s have a look, shall we?
It certainly is… explodey. Read more »
A weird one this, but one for which we can all be thankful. Paramount’s Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol will come with a six minute preview/prologue of Warner Bros. The Dark Knight Rises on all IMAX prints. So, you know, if you were intending on seeing Ghost Protocol you’ve got a pretty good excuse to spend that extra penny seeing the IMAX version…
So, why would Paramount and Warner Bros. do this? Read more »
