Mission Impossible: Fallout features Tom Cruise running.

He always runs.

It's another great MI movie. It neatly wraps up the previous three films in the franchise, Ghost Protocol, Rogue Nation, and MI III. Now is it the best of the bunch? I'm not too sure as I find them all so enjoyable. I can tell you this that they hyped it up too much, and said it was the best action film. It wasn't, but it was still good.

I was thrilled by Rogue Nation. I was gleeful with Ghost Protocol. MI III was a great restart. This one had me on the edge all the time.

4 of 5 stars.

Ant-Man and the Wasp is a fun summer movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It's a good one to wash the dark taste of The Avengers: Infinity War from your mouth. This is a romp with very light stakes. A fun time. A rip-roaring fun time. Then if you stay until the end credits, the MCU darkness creeps back in. But overall, so fun.

4 of 5 stars.

I believe that the first Incredibles movie was one of the best films of the 2000s. It's Pixar's best movie. It is one of the only few movies that had me exiting the theatre feeling exhilarated. So the bar is high for Incredibles 2. Sadly, judged against its predecessor, it falls short. It is still a good movie, but...

3 of 5 stars.

O, forgot to tell you on the last Nogizaka post. You are able to watch in the US without the need of a VPN to Japan because, Sony Music, in their infinite wisdom, has unblocked Nogizaka videos from the US. They should've done this sooner, but it's all good. When they come to America in 2019, at least you'll now know who they are. Just don't snake my tix!

Nogizaka46's 21st single. The second of the year. Their summer song.

I haven't warmed up to it.

Need more listens.

Long time no see! I am making my way through the 14th year of this blog in slow motion. Perhaps I'll finally write those reviews of movies that I have seen. There's a few, but I am lazy and haven't bothered.

Anyway this blog isn't shuttered just yet. Still meaning to post things. I guess I'll try with something interesting in the idol world.

It's Sally! Read up on this American doing idol things as an anime voice actress in Japan. Anime! It's kooky!!

Summer songs seem to know no borders.

I can feel the heat rising off the black top. I can smell the ocean. I can feel the sand between the toes. And this is Japan?!

Not sure what Shiraishi Mai is selling, but more of that off the shoulder action and I will go to my local conbini for some. Also, shouldn't it really be Misa-senpai selling alcohol because she's the sexy drinking senpai of Nogizaka?
