‘Gifted’ Review

Cast: Chris Evans, Mckenna Grace, Octavia Spencer, Jenny Slate, and Lindsay Duncan Genre: Drama I do not know what it is about this movie, maybe it’s the simple, close-knit setting or maybe it’s the chemistry between all the actors and actresses. There’s something really special about this little indie film. Now personally indie films are either a hit or miss with me, you really need to capture my attention from the beginning.

Particularly if said reader is…

Mission: Impossible – Fallout Review

Cast: Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Angela Bassett, Ving Rhames, and Michelle Monaghan Genre: Thiller, Action Director: Christopher McQuarrie Truthfully, this is the only series that I’ve watched completely out of order. First starting with Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol, Mission Impossible 3, Mission Impossible 2, and Rogue Nation then finally Mission Impossible 6. This series has definitely grown on me. It’s fun, exciting, and manages to out-do itself every time. You’d…
