"If there was a chance for the Oscars to update its proceedings, then a 'Best Stunt' category is long overdue and necessary." | Mission: Impossible - Fallout Review #MissionImpossibleFallout @TomCruise @chrismcquarrie

In an age of James Bond and Jason Bourne, the spy genre has become a constant re-evaluation of its modernity.  Both franchises have found a level of adaptability in understanding how the world mirrors the reality of its protagonists.  Not to be left…

In my latest discussion piece, I take a look at nostalgia and its increasing use of it in popular media #Solo #JurassicWorld #TheXFiles #nostalgia
