Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

I remember walking out of the Senator Theater after seeing Mission: Impossible in 1996 with my family. My mother didn’t understand the plot but I was sure that I understood every twist and turn and it turned out I was pretty much on point. I never really watched the show but I felt at the time that M:I was a great movie with plenty of action and suspense. I still feel that way about most of the franchise. Ghost Protocol renewed my interest by including Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg and injected a little more comedy in with the drama, not much but enough to lighten it up a bit. I felt they did even better with Rogue Nation. From beginning to end I loved the fast pace and mystery. They got the band back together from Rogue Nation and added Ving Rhames back in from the original trilogy. Say what you will about Tom Cruise but I think he plays a really good action star and he does a lot of his own stunts. The movie pretty much hit all of the right notes and there was never a moment where I wasn’t invested. I definitely recommend it. I’ll probably be seeing it a second time.


Speaking of the Senator Theater, my Dad and I drove off to watch Trainwreck at what is the best movie theater in Baltimore. My Dad insisted that we go see Trainwreck based on articles he had read about the movie about the writer/star Amy Schumer. I was a bit surprised at this because my Dad has never really expressed interest in romantic comedies before. From the trailers, that was what I thought Trainwreck was. I thought it was a Netflix watch at best but Dad pushed for it so I relented. Afterall, he had often relented when I pushed for comic book movies. I completely underestimated the movie. Whoever made the trailer I saw should be fired. The movie is not just a romantic comedy. It’s also a great movie about a person (Amy) who is forced to come to terms with who she is and who she wants to be. It’s a story about personal growth and expanding your boundaries and also about what love is. I highly reccomend everyone check it out. The only caveat I have is that there is a lot of pretty dirty language in it so be prepared. (Also John Cena is in it!)

Ninja Sex Party


I kind of hesitated to talk about this here because I try to keep this blog mostly clear of things that are NSFW. This is why I will probably never promote Steel Panther on this blog (wink). The thing is, NSP has lately burned itself into my brain and I’ve been playing the above video plenty of times this last week. The group is comprised of Ninja Brian and Danny Sexbang who are two internet musicians. The energy of Brian’s music combines really well with Danny’s infectious joy on the mic. This is probably the happiest music I’ve ever heard. Don’t worry about the NSFW stuff (unless your uncomfortable about sexy stuff which is totally cool)


Dead Like Me


I watched the entirety of Dead Like Me while I lived in New Jersey during a time where I was suffering major depression on and off. This show definitely resonated with me and it definitely lifted me from some dark days. I am not going to lie, this is a dark show but there’s a lot of comedy as well. It’s mostly about the personal journey of a young woman who dies and is tasked with taking the souls of the living just before their body dies so they can be escorted to the afterlife. It’s also about how we handle grief and how we learn to be ourselves as the ground shifts beneath our feet. It also has Mandy Patinkin in it.


Cinema Sins


This is actually a series that I really like but it also makes me nervous. See, Cinema Sins is a series of Youtube shorts that takes the piss out of movies. It goes moment by moment through a movie and points out plotholes, weird bits and annoying moments. Part of the joke is that they legitimately point out crappy parts of movies. The other part of the joke is they go beyond that and nitpick too much. All of this is hilarious until they make fun of movies I really love which is of course half the point of their videos.


Garfunkel and Oates


I just watched the first episode of this show on Netflix and it’s good. I first became acquainted with the Garfunkel and Oates because of Scrubs which was a favorite show of mine. Kate Miccuci was a reocurring guest star in the later seasons and was known as The Gooch. She played ukelele and sang which is what she does with her comedy music partner Riki Lindhome. The show (which is a sitcom sort of) follows the unique style of their music in that it is upbeat, awkward and funny all at once. It definitely caught me off guard with how good it was.
