Ethan Hunt, aka Tom Cruise, is back for the fifth instalment of the Mission Impossible franchise with ‘Rogue Nation’ - a high-octane adventure that sees the Impossible Mission Force pitted against their most nefarious enemy to date. Starting life back in 1966 as a hit US TV show, Mission Impossible has grown into a multi-million dollar franchise spawning a series of hit,...

With Tom Cruise hanging off of the side of a massive plane in Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (above) which opens later this week, we thought we'd scramble together 16 of the best movie stunts we've ever seen. The following entries have been carefully contemplated by our team of savvy screen-watchers over here, and while there are countless more movie stunts...

In case last year's 1984 Retrospective series didn't confirm it, this writer is a huge fan of the Gremlins movies. The first film turned thirty (along with myself) last year and I spent pages and pages telling you all just why it is still so amazing today (it's here if you missed it). With this all in mind it was quite...

Regular readers of the site will know that earlier this year we ran a series looking at the classic films of Keanu Reeves. This was to co-inside with the release of the fantastic John Wick; now we turn our attention to another big name from the nineties, Tom Cruise. Each week from now until the release of the highly anticipated fifth Mission Impossible...

This July Jake Gyllenhaal returns to the big screen in the explosive new boxing drama Southpaw - his first major big-screen outing since he slithered his way behind a camera lens in the delightfully unsettling Nightcrawler.

These are ten of the greatest greatest cinematic hired killers. Lets kick it off, in no set order (too good for a hierarchy)... Christoper Lee as Francisco...

Jake Gyllenhaal burst onto the scene in Richard Kelly's Donnie Darko and has to have one of the most interesting and diverse careers in Hollywood. He's done quirky (Nightcrawler), romantic comedy (Love and other Drugs), science fiction (Source Code) and action (The Prince of Persia). Some films have been more successful than others, but for us Gyllenhaal is never better than when he's got...

Ant-Man has just hit cinemas in the UK, with the action-packed comedy escapade heading straight for the box office sugar mountain. With its story of a house thief who gets more than he bargains for when he pinches a mysterious suit that makes shrinking in the wash look like a walk in the park, it falls squarely on the...

We live in an age where celebrity culture is prominent, thanks primarily to the rise of on-demand media channels and expanding television networks. This culture is particularly alluring to the younger generation, who often look up to famous celebrities and aspire to emulate their affluent and jet-setting lifestyles. This type of behaviour usually takes two distinct forms. More specifically, impressionable...
