The Joy of Geek Podcast, Episode 70:
Mission: Impossible - Fallout Review and Series Retrospective

On this episode of The Joy of Geek Podcast, we (Rich, Kevin and Young) are geared-up and ready for action with a review of Mission: Impossible - Fallout, the latest in the sense-shattering spy-action franchise that somehow keeps raising the stakes with each new entry. Fallout is actually the sixth film in the series (and the second directed by Christopher McQuarrie) and it has proved to be an explosive hit with audiences and critics alike.

In our Joy of Geek Review, we look at all aspects of the film, including the narrative, plot twists, cast of characters, action set-pieces, stunts, cinematography, fight choreography, soundtrack and more, and decide how well Fallout fares in the modern movie landscape. We also look back at the previous five Mission: Impossible films - from M:I 1 through Rogue Nation - tracing the lineage of the series and offering our thoughts on the quality of each entry.

And since this is an episode of TJOG, we also take time to discuss the latest geek culture news, and recap what we’ve been watching and reading lately. This week’s topics include: Sharp Objects on HBO, Sons of Anarchy, new pseudo-reality series Castaways, Bloodshot: Salvation, a visit to Blerdcon, Star Trek 4 without Pine and Hemsworth, Ruby Rose as Batwoman, The Oscars' new "Popular Film" category, and more. 

So join us, as we avoid danger (and a number of double-crosses and mask-pulls) to get the perfect review and save the world from certain destruction. This...is The Joy of Geek!
