    Best F(r)iends: Volume One

    ★½

    This movie was a success before its pre-production stage.

    If it's great: Amazing redemption story

    If it's really bad: No one's going to be disappointed. Hell, people wanted this to suck!

    It was a sure win no matter how you take it.

    Truth is, this movie is all over the place and if it didn't have Sestero's and Wisaueauea's name on it, no one would ever watch it.

A no-budget sci-fi "12 Angry Men" with some philosophy sprinkled on top. Religion only became a part of it during the third act and it was handled as the big "twist". It was a charming, quiet, funny and mysterious little movie.

    What this sequel does, is take everything…

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★½

    "I thought this was 150 minutes, where's the rest 60 minutes?"

    That was my first thought when "Mission: Impossible - Fallout" ended, I honestly could not believe this insane ride was already over.

    I'm struggling to remember a more adrenaline-inducing third act in an action film and the closest I got was Mad Max: Fury Road. And, honestly, I dare say Fallout surpassed what was one of the most action-packed movies ever made.

    I saw all previous five Mission Impossible…
