Reviews: 'Mission: Impossible - Fallout' and 'Eighth Grade' are the must-see movies this weekend, July 27
With no signs of stopping, the "Mission: Impossible" franchise looks to top itself once again with its sixth feature-film adventure. But don't get too caught up in all of the hype, because while Tom Cruise's latest action flick might be the biggest movie of the weekend, it's not the best...that belongs to a small film called "Eighth Grade," which centers on an impossible mission of a different kind: Trying to survive middle school.
There are also several other movies seeing release this weekend. Here are reviews of the latest films hitting theaters this weekend, Friday, July 27, 2018:
If you're anxiously awaiting answers to the epic finale of April's "The Avengers: Infinity War," well, you're going to have to wait a bit longer. Although "Ant-Man and The Wasp" is the 20th film set in the Marvel Universe and a direct sequel to 2015's "Ant-Man," it takes place before and during the events of that film. And coming from the galactic, ginormous stakes of "Infinity War," the newest Ant-Man adventure can't help but feel...smaller...in comparison.
