The Breakdown of 'Mission Impossible - Fallout', 'Teen Titans Go! to the Movies' and 'Father of the Year'

Do you ever say to yourself, "I hate it when movie review shows jump right to the movie reviews that are the reason that I am listening to this show. I need more filler!" Over here at The Movie Breakdown, we have heard your cry and so we go a good seventeen minutes before we even start reviewing movies. This week Christopher talks about taking the kids to Canada's Wonderland and several movies that Everett got to see for the first time this weekend. Then we also review movies, we've got one of the most anticipated movies of the summer in the big action epic, Mission Impossible - Fallout. Christopher also took his kids to see the animated comedy, Teen Titans Go! to the Movies, so he discusses the movie and the experience. To really make it a special episode, we review the latest David Spade comedy in Father of the Year. Then we look at movie clich├ęs that we hate and admit to the times that they actually work and why we liked them those few times. We also discuss the James Gunn firing and analyze if filmmakers should be fired for comments they made in the past. It is a huge episode and we really hope you love it, and if you do, then please help us out by spreading the word.

We apologize but there won't be any outline for The Movie Breakdowndue to the crazy mystery that the media player runs different times and so the timestamps have no value. If you know how to solve this problem then it would be greatly appreciated.

Question of the Week: What animated feature would you love to see adapted into a live-action movie that has not happened or has not yet been announced?
