IMAX movies shoot on 70mm film instead of 35mm. This means you can show the picture on a larger screen and see far more detail.
Occasionally I enjoy a mindless, big budget action flick. I’d have to say that the Mission: Impossible franchise is one of my favourites for this.
To be fair, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol is not completely mindless. It has a decent, if somewhat unbelievable plot. It’s full of international espionage as a good spy story is apt to have. Unlike the 1960’s TV show, these movies are known for their exhilarating stunts and fancy effects. This movie also adds breath-taking location shots. (Moscow, Dubai, Mumbai...) Say what you will about his personal life, Tom Cruise knows how make an audience gasp. The scene with him climbing the exterior glass walls of the world’s tallest structure (Burj Khalifa in Dubai) is now my favourite moment in cinematic history. It was epic.
