TL;DR – Today we chart every location visited on screen in the Mission: Impossible film franchise
Today I had the day off work and thought it was the perfect time to pop in my Mission: Impossible – Fallout (see review) blu-ray and enjoy Tom Cruise running for two and a half hours. As Hunt and the team gallivanted around Europe and beyond I did what I always do in these situations and started charting it all out, and once that starts well itis best to crack open that world map and put it all down.
Now with today’s map, we have added all the places that Mission: Impossible has visited in the films, not necessarily where they were filmed. Also, my memory is not as good as remembering some of the details from the older movies and a lot of the synopses don’t go into the amount of detail that I needed, so I might have missed a couple.
TL;DR – While it may tread along a path that is a bit predictable, the commitment of the actors and the emotion make it a must-see film.
Score – 4.5 out of 5 stars
Post-Credit Scene – There is no post-credit scene
Back in 2015, I didn’t really have any great desire to go see the first Creed film, a spin-off of a long-running boxing series that had felt like it was running out of steam didn’t seem like an enjoyable time in a world where remake after remake was getting greenlit. However, some people that I trust called me on my reluctance and really recommended it, so reluctantly I went and soon discovered how wrong I was. It was a beautiful film of struggle and triumph, fighting when no one believes in you, and how we battle both are internal and external demons. It was the film that immediately put Michael B.Jordan, Tessa Thompson, and Ryan Coogler on my radar of performers to watch out for and ended up on my Top 10 Films of 2015list. So when I heard they were doing a sequel I was incredibly excited, when I heard Ryan was not directing or writing it, I got a little concerned, but now I have seen it once again I should have known better.
TL;DR – This is a film that has one of the most ridiculous casts I have seen in a long time, but it just does not come together in end.
Score – 3.5 out of 5 stars
Post-Credit Scene – There is no post-credit scene
It is rare that a film comes along with a cast just as ludicrous as this, with a premise as strong as this, indeed you should see it just to watch Viola Davis own every scene she is in. Add to this, we have a heist film, and ensemble heist films are some of my favourite films. Now,this should be an instant win for me, but while I think it is a good film, I am not sure it was a great one because it is held back but a couple of things.

TL;DR – Well this is an odd one indeed, and while it is looking at an important issue, it just feels like it never really all clicked together.
Score – 3 out of 5 stars
Throughout history, there have been numerous times when the people living in villagers have needed a scapegoat for their current woes, and often times that scapegoat has been any women of note in the town. Now, of course, the most well know, though not well understood, occurrence of these witch trails was in Salem, Massachusetts in the US, they also happened across the world (and still happen today), and in tonight’s Doctor Who, we look at England’s past. However,while this setting should feel right up The Doctor’s (Jodie Whittaker) ally,something just does not quite work.
TL;DR – Of this films many, many failings, is the fact that you can see a kernel of a good idea here, that they refused to commit too and thus made it a film about nothing.
Score – 1 out of 5 stars
Post-Credit Scene – There is no post-credit scene
Oh wow, and I mean wow, how do you stuff this up as badly as you do here. For a lot of people, there is this annoyance that film companies keep going back to these public domain properties because it is just a cheap option, and I get that. But because these stories are so well known, you can use them as a basis for doing something novel or even experimental. In years past, we have gotten the full-on epic with Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves all the way to the absolute farce that is Robin Hood: Men in Tights. However, there was room for another film to take the mythos in a new direction … well, this is not that film, which somehow fails at being both a re-telling of the original myth and also an abysmal attempt at modernising the story for a new audience.
In this thread we will be documenting all the new additions for Civilization VI in their new expansion.
This Features Thread is being complied for Civfanatics, head on over to the forums for all your Civilization discussions both for and also for games past.
TL;DR: There will be 8 New Civilizations, 5 New Districts, 7 New Wonders & 7 New Natural Wonders. The main new game mechanic are World Congress, Natural Disasters, and a new Future Era . It will be available on 14th of February 2019. And you can watch the Trailer HERE

There will be two scenarios in Gathering Storm
The Black Death: The Black Death ravaged Europe and western Asia in the mid-14th century, killing a greater share of the population than any other event in world history. The pandemic killed millions, ruined economies, upended political dynasties and transformed the face of the Western world. Your task is to lead your nation through the calamity: keep your population alive, your economy strong, and your faith unshaken amidst a world of terror and desperation.
War Machine:At the outset of WWI, the German Imperial Army had a daring plan: invade neutral Belgium and then rush the French heartland before they could mobilize to resist. If successful, the German forces would capture Paris within a month and end their resistance forever. In counter, the French command prepared Plan 17, an all-out onslaught designed to meet and stop a German offensive. When war was declared, both armies swung into motion and set up one of the most incredible and shocking military campaigns in world history. In this multiplayer scenario, players take the side of one of these two great powers at this same precipice. As Germany, your task is to capture Paris. As France, your task is to prevent its capture. The clock is ticking, and the enemy is moving. Advance!
