With Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Ethan Hunt yet again prevails over a mission that makes no logical sense, yet thrills us all. And that is our springboard for this week’s topic: Impossibly Impossible Missions.

Movies often require a suspension of disbelief, and often times, films with a mission at hand – i.e., a plan that benefits the greater good – require you to physically remove your brain from its holster in order to continue. This week, we’re looking at several missions that we believe could never have resulted in success in reality.  

Also this week: 24 reboots again, Star Wars welcomes back its Princess, Hardwick returns, reviews of Netflix’s Extinction, Castle Rock, a debate on the star power of Tom Cruise, and much more.

Join in on the conversation and listen to the latest episode of The Hollywood Outsider.
