If you have noticed, when I write about movies that I’ve watched in the cinemas recently, more often than not they are those 冷门 cold door (obscure, unheard of) movies that nobody gives a sh*t about.
Today is different. I am going to write about a movie that everybody either have already rushed to watch it, or will be rushing to watch it in the cinemas soon. Unless of course if you are a mother/father with toddlers. Or if you are not interested in watching movies in cinemas.
I went to watch Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation last weekend. It is the fifth instalment of the Mission Impossible series that made Tom Cruise the superstar that he is today.
The movie itself was alright. I mean, you get to see Tom Cruise jumping onto a plane and hanging on to it as it took off. And also diving underwater and staying submerged for 3 minutes, performing some tasks while trying to avoid being hit by a robotic arm. That kind of stuff, nothing terribly exciting, really. All typical MI stuff…
But the main reason that lured me into the cinema for this movie is because I saw this guy on the posters, Jeremy Renner. I think he has already made his appearance in the previous instalment, Ghost Protocol. But I did not watch that one, so him in MI movies is news to me.
What the f**k is Hawkeye (of Avengers) doing in this movie? I felt that I had an obligation to myself to find out. And find out I did. It was rather unsettling for me to see him playing in such a role. It was like the total opposite of Hawkeye in terms of… comedic properties. This isn’t a spoiler, is it? I think it is more of a teaser than spoiler.
I was mighty glad that I watched this movie though. Because it introduced me to another new hottie on the big screens. I don’t think I have seen her before in other movies, so she must be new. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, Rebecca Ferguson.
She is a Swedish actress (her full name is Rebecca Louisa Ferguson Sundström), half English actually, because her mother is an English who moved to Sweden. She plays a triple agent in this movie, and much like Tom Cruise, she does most of the stunts herself.
There were many scenes where she was very revealing in the movie, if you know what I mean, but I personally fell in love with her bike scene. Watching her in a bike almost made me wet my pants. So freakin’ sexy! OMG!!
As of now there are already many articles from various entertainment websites giving her very positive coverage for her performances in this movie. I’m sure she will become a superstar in her own right very soon.
Anyway, here’s the trailer for the movie…
It’s too bad that they did not feature more of her in the trailer. Maybe she was not famous, that’s why she did not get enough coverage. Stupid, short-sighted producers. They should’ve been able to see how good she was in the course of filming and should have redone their trailers to feature her more. The movie would’ve been an even bigger success!
And I think I better stop talking now, before I veer further away from the topic and stoke the imaginations of horny men…
