    ★★★★½

    I’m about to go full story time mode here, so bare with me. 

    Last summer, I interned at a company out in Colorado. I was away from my family and home for an extended period for the first time in my life. I got a little lonely every now and then.

    Going in, this was already my most anticipated movie of the year thus far. Tom Cruise in combination with the amazing Christopher McQuarrie is always a treat. And my god, have they cooked up a masterpiece. It’s as if they looked at the last one and…
