Good morning, Mr. or Ms. End Credits listener. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to listen to this week’s episode of the show, which is all about the Mission: Impossible franchise. One of the most unique and organic franchises of our time, there’s been a lot of good stuff in this series so far, and a lot of good stuff in its latest entry, Fallout. Shall we discuss? This internet post will self-destruct in five seconds…
This Wednesday, August 1, at 2 pm, Adam A. Donaldson, and Jesse Mellott will discuss:
Mission: Completist. See Tom. See Tom Run. Run Tom, Run. That, along with cool gadgets and globetrotting, pretty much sums up the Mission: Impossible film series, which has featured dozens of actors, five directors, but only one star/producer in the person of Tom Cruise. Still, the M:I series offers some surprisingly interesting directions and complications that you don’t find in other blockbuster franchises. We’ll run down the first five Missions: Impossible.
REVIEW: Mission: Impossible – Fallout (2018). For the first time in franchise history, a director returns to pick up his own baton for the further adventures of Ethan Hunt and the Impossible Missions Force. In the sixth film in the series, Hunt and his team must track down some missing plutonium before it can be used in three doomsday devices in an attack on an unknown target. Joining the fun this time is
Superman Henry Cavill, who may prove more than a match for our old friend Ethan. Nothing’s impossible, except Tom Cruise’s good luck!
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 2 pm.
