Wheel of Time News
Desperate for Wheel of Time news? Here's the latest, hot off the press:
Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation
Another fantastic entry in the rare case of an action franchise that just keeps getting better and better. That's thanks to great direction of excellent action in awesome set pieces and action, but also thanks to the leading man.
People can say about Cruise's private life or religious choices all they want. The man keeps delivering great genre entertainment year after year, while doing as many stunts as he can all by himself. The insane opening sequence is testament to that.
Still, one of the best parts of this is how it is an ensemble piece with everyone doing their part. Female newbie Rebecca Ferguson is fantastic, blowing all Bond girls from the last 45 years out of the water. Pegg is likable and funny as always.

The film also neatly ties itself into the existing Marvel universe, again showing the benefit of such a well-established world, where ...
While the trailers didn't manage (or maybe didn't even try, because they left me entirely indifferent) to grasp the entire concept of the latest Pixar adventure, the movie needs mere seconds to sell the audience on its premise.
It all starts with a birth: Emotions (joy, sadness, anger, fear, disgust) are working hard in their headquarters inside our heads. Dreams are made in a film studio nearby. Imagination is a wild amusement park ...
