Long Weekend Movies: Missions Impossible and Awkward

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation – Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his team of highly skilled agents of Impossible Missions Force (IMF) are now facing against a foe just as powerful as them: A worldwide organization called the Syndicate that plans to destroy the IMF and create a new world order. Sheesh, more international conspiracies. With IMF recently reunited after disbanding due to a mission failure in the past, Ethan also recruits a British agent named Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson) to assist them in sneaking into the Syndicate to take it down. But she might be working for the Syndicate herself. Intense action and occasional humour in this flick, though not recommended for kids. Rated PG-13.

Vacation – A new outing with the “funny” family, the Griswolds, going off on another adventure of sheer awkwardness. It seems the family fights over the most stupid of problems and rarely bonds, instead spending their time making dumb remarks. Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) wants to become a better father and decides the best way to bring the family together is by a vacation. So he gets the family ready for a trip to one of the best family parks in America, Six Flags (no, wait…) Disneyland (NO, not that either…) Legoland (Yeah, right) Walley World. Yeah, that’s quite the creative name, I wonder what genius came up with that back in 1983. I’m not too sure about this one, with the really awful sense of humour as well as the R rating, but anyone who is into this kind of family will thoroughly enjoy it, I’m sure.
