The ageless Tom Cruise is back once again as superspy Ethan Hunt in "Mission Impossible: Fallout"--the 6th entry in the movie franchise that has now spanned 22 years.

In this episode of the podcast, Andy Farnsworth and Adam Thomas review and discuss (WITH SPOILERS) "Fallout," including how it manages to tie the whole "Mission: Impossible" movie series together; what they thought of the twists and turns (and appearance of Superman--uh--Henry Cavill); question how much longer can Cruise continue to be an action star and whether there will be a 7th M:I movie with him in the lead; also why Andy thinks Cruise's "Mission: Impossible" series has eclipsed "James Bond" as the best spy movie franchise.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson channels his inner John McClane in the movie "Skyscraper," a sort-of cross between "Die Hard" and "The Towering Inferno" that just might be a sneaky hit this summer.

In this episode of the podcast, Andy Farnsworth and Ryan Meeks are joined by Doug Wright of "The Movie Show" on KSL NewsRadio in SLC for some SPOILER-FILLED talk about "Skyscraper," including why they think this movie works, even though maybe it wouldn't with someone besides The Rock in the starring role of Will Sawyer.

They also discuss what they think of Neve Campbell as an action-movie star, what "Skyscraper" could have done better, and why Andy thinks The Rock seems to have turned into a real-life superhero and why that's amazing in and of itself, based on Johnson's career arc.

NOTE: This podcast is also available in video form on iTunes, the Apple Podcasts app, & Google Play Music.
