The first round of Movies vs. Matrimony season 3!
Mission: Impossible - Fallout opens across Canada July 27th but you and a guest can attend an early screening in Vancouver, Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary or Ottawa courtesy of Dork Shelf and Paramount Pictures!
A rare audio commentary from Tom Cruise is one of the saving graces of the new Mission: Impossible- Rogue Nation Blu-ray.
Wes Craven might not have taken his 90s horror fairy tale The People Under The Stairs too seriously but Shout Factory certainly have with their full Blu-ray treatment that will give genre junkies a new found appreciation for this odd movie.
Tom Cruise returns as IMF agent Ethan Hunt for a fifth time. So is Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation a mission worth accepting?

In honour of a mini-retrospective in his honour starting this week at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, we look at the career of Wes Craven, the best horror director of his time.
Our film editor was asked to contribute to a list of dozens of "sleeper hits" that can currently be rented free of charge from Bay Street Video in Toronto. Given the vague definition of the term, here is why he chose his films on the list and gives recommendations for other films to pair alongside the free rentals.
Looking to shake the early winter doldrums? Before you head out or order in a movie out on DVD this week, take a look at our eclectic line-up of reviews including the action of Taken 2 and Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning, the martial arts mayhem of Swords of Dragons Gate, the drama of Won't Back Down, the visual splendour of Samsara, and the return of Woody Allen in To Rome with Love.
We take a look back on the career of Quentin Tarantino as Reservoir Dogs celebrates it's 20th anniversary with a blu-ray box set including almost all of the feature films he's been a part of.
Taking place in a magical and conservative world where teacher's unions are the most evil threats to our children and ukelele improv sessions are equal to Oscar bait, leading actresses Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis work overtime to make the school based drama/polemic Won't Back Down not seem nearly as dreadful as it could have very easily been. That still doesn't make it good.
Dull, unfunny, unscary, and nowhere near as fun or campy as any of the films to bear the name of the famed man eating fish Piranha 3DD stinks on almost every conceivable level like pure desperation and boredom.
Wrapping up our look at the cinematic offerings for the month of June, we take a look at some real heavy hitters with Brave, Moonrise Kingdom, Prometheus, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Snow White and the Huntsman, Rock of Ages, and Piranha 3DD, which will undoubtedly win the box office crown for the month.
