The Watchlist: Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part 1, The New Boy & Carmen

Is this the end of the true action hero era?

Bible reference(s): Matthew, Mark, Luke, John

Is this an end of an era of the action heroes?!

On The Watchlist Laura & Russ visit the latest in the franchise Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part One... Yet, the big question is whether Tom Cruise is the last of the real action hero. With all of the CGI used in films anymore, is there anyone who can eventually take Tom Cruise's mantel as an action hero star?

What is impressive about this episode is there is more than just MI7... We include some home-grown Australian films from this year's Syndey Film Festival and where they rank amongst some of our most beloved Aussie classics. Like always, comment and tell us your thoughts and what movies you would like to see next on The Watchlist.

So many shows, so little time. At least it feels like it. Between all the different streaming platforms and the blockbuster movies coming to cinema trying to get audiences back in a post-COVID world, we are spoilt for choice on screen – and yet, still “have nothing to watch”.

Deciphering all the voices in entertainment and how to think about the themes raised in movies, TV, and streaming is tough: enter our new podcast The Watchlist.
