Recently The Man and I embarked on what can sometimes seem like Mission Impossible, Date Night! Seven months ago before we were parents going to see a film at the cinema was the norm, in fact we went every week, it was as natural as going to do the food shop. We’re film nerds. Now it’s like we’re getting ready for our own Mission Impossible, planning not hours but days in advance, expressing milk organising the baby essentials, one last feed before we go… It’s endless.
We’re fans of Tom Cruise and the MI series so if theirs one film we were willing to call in a favour from the grandparents for it’s this, we still have unlimited passes for our cinema so didn’t need to pay aside from snacks, you need cinema snacks! (A large popcorn and cherry Ice Blast if you want specifics)
Although I probably spent 75% of the film wondering if Tails was being good for his grandparents I still managed to relax a little and really enjoyed the film. Toms plane stunt in Rogue Nation was impressive and I love that he does most stunts himself, I think it adds to the excitement of the film, but I don’t think you can be his free climbing in M:i-2. He may have aged but my goodness I still love him!
Overall it was another successful date night for us, we haven’t had many since Tails arrived but the opportunity for a couple of hours out of the house that doesn’t involve baby play is rare and has become to feel foreign to me, It always feels odd leaving the house with a tiny bag containing nothing more than a purse and my phone.
What do you like to do most on the rare occasion you get a night off?
In addition to this post I was sent this cool infographic from the guys over at Into The Blue and Hollywood News showing the worlds most dangerous movie stunts that were performed by the stars! Do you have any favourite movie stunts?
