Film Podcast: Vacation, Mission Impossible and One of the Best Movies of the Year
On this week's Voice Film Club podcast: The Vacation reboot disappoints, as does Adam Sandler's Pixels (but it can't be near as bad as critics are describing, says the Village Voice's Alan Scherstuhl).
Meanwhile, the '40s noir melodrama Phoenix might be one of the year's best, says Voice film critic Stephanie Zacharek.
Finally, the good-but-not-great Mission: Impossible movie is just the fourth-best of the five in the franchise, says L.A. Weekly film critic and Tom Cruise expert Amy Nicholson.
