Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol

Blu-ray Review: ‘Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol’ starring Tom Cruise

If your jaw doesn’t drop while you’re watching Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol, then you’re not really paying attention. Between star Tom Cruise’s unbelievable stunts, including hanging from the tallest building in the world–a dangerous, challenging stunt that most actors would never dream of attempting–and his charm, I would go so far as to say that Cruise rarely gets the praise he deserves for going beyond what should be expected of him.

DVD Tuesday: ‘No Country for Old Men’, ‘Sleuth’

The Coen Brother’s award-winning No Country for Old Men arrives on DVD this week, and while all those awards will certainly draw movie fans in, the best reason to see the film is simply that it is one of the best examples great moviemaking that I have seen in a long time. Other new arrivals include Sleuth with Jude Law and Michael Caine, the dramedy Dan in Real Life starring Steve Carell, and in that other format, Independence Day arrives on Blu-Ray.
