Disney's Christopher Robin continues the company's decades-long project of co-opting every last smackeral of A.A. Milne's 100-Acre Wood in the mind of children the world over. While we wait to learn first hand that a little boy and his bear will indeed always be playing, we've decided to take a look at movies based on classic books, with our favorite films based on children's literature.
Tom Cruise has done everything but commit actual seppukuon-camera for our spectatorial enjoyment, so we're excited to see what he has in store for us in Mission: Impossible - Fallout. While we get more and more hyped to watch him break his damn bones right there in the movie, we're going to take a look at our other favorite stunts from across movie history: the ridiculous car flips, high jumps, and hanging-from-clocks that brazen fucking idiots have put themselves through for the rest of us to say "well, that was cool" as we eat ice cream on the couch.

We're pretty far into summer at this point, and if you haven't already been on vacation, you might be thinking it's about time to take one. In this episode, we discuss our favorite vacation movies. Whether it's exotic destinations and the wacky misadventures that happen there, or maybe just the pleasure of staying home with nothing to do, as long as it's getting out of the daily routine, it's enough of a vacation for us.
Despite it having been made pretty clear in the dialogue of the first three movies in the Purgefranchise, we finally to get to see what happened during The First Purge. It's the only excuse we need to look back at our own favorite prequels, that most wonderful narrative form that combines the pandering of a forced sequel with the thrill of knowing exactly how the plot is going to end even before it starts.
