My View: Mission Impossible: Fallout (2018) R Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team have a mission go wrong, and now Ethan is a wanted man. The MI series just gets better with every film. What I love about this series is that it keeps upping the game, making the action sequences bigger and bigger. I’m not a huge Tom Cruise fan but he gives it his all, and it is evident that he does almost all his own stunts. The action sequences are some of the best I’ve ever seen and the last fifteen minutes of the film are on the edge of your seat amazing. The plot has plenty of twists and turns to keep you interested, and the film moves at a breathtaking pace. I can’t express how much fun watching this film is. Just go see it.

Familyfiare: Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018) PG The five Teen Titans dream of Hollywood making a movie on their superhero antics. Robin (Scott Menville) must make a serious decision when a Hollywood director named Jade (Kristen Bell) decides she wants to make a film only about him. I went into this film knowing nothing about the Teen Titans and expected it to be another animated snooze fest. Instead, I encountered a delightful movie full of humor and fun. I was really surprised by this film, especially the sometimes really dark humor that fills this film. The film is a blast to watch, and adults will enjoy this film as much as their kid's will.

Indiefest: Blindspotting (2018) R Collin (Daveed Riggs and Miles (Rafael Casal) have been friends since their childhood. Colin has three days left on his probation, three days to stay out of trouble. The problem is that trouble just seems to follow everywhere Miles goes. The film moves defy between humor and seriousness. This is about friendship, race and the changing landscape of neighborhoods. Diggs and Casal have great chemistry on screen making this film work so well. This is a film that you will be thinking about long after you see it.

All Kayla wants to do is survive the last week of the eighth grade so she can start high school on a clean slate. Life has decided that Kayla should come out of the shadows. Kayla decides to give advice on how to navigate life through a series of YouTube videos. I loved this film, and Elsie Fisher is a delight to watch on screen. Her performance is heartfelt and beautiful and writer/director Bo Burnham treats her with a loving touch. The film is filled with beautiful moments about an awkward kid trying just to survive one last week of school. This is a film that everyone will enjoy going into the last week of eighth grade with Kayla. My Rating: I Would Pay to See it Again Eighth Grade Website
