This month, we recommend two completely different movies. The latest installment of the Mission: Impossible saga and the biopic about the creator of one of the most popular digital games of all time.

Mission:Impossible. Deadly Sentence. Part 1

With a title that sounds like a parody, comes yet another proposal (the seventh) of Mission Impossible, one of those movies that one can go to see to eat popcorn without getting a disappointment and being sold a pig in a poke.

Mission:Impossible. Deadly Sentence. Part 1

Diector: Christopher McQuarrie
Script: Christopher McQuarrie, Erik Jendresen
Actor: Tom Cruise
Broadcast: Cinemas

By now, we're confident that Tom knows what he's doing. Ethan Hunt and his team must find a terrifying new weapon (that threatens all of humanity!) before it falls into the wrong hands (villains with Eastern European accents, former office mates, global elitist cults...).

With a blablabla of catastrophic misfortunes threatening everything (control of the future, the fate of the world, the mass sterilization of bees that could unleash a armageddon), a fast-paced death race begins.

In this one, Ethan will have to choose between what he has always had to choose throughout the MI saga: either the mission, or the lives of his friends. Will he manage to outwit fate again this time? Will someone die at last who is not the one we expect?

Actually, we're going to have just as much fun.


Henk Rogers is a video game developer who falls in love with a primitive and addictive version of Tetris. This passion and his desire to succeed and bring it to the masses, will lead him to mortgage everything and risk a little more to get in touch with the creator of the game, Alexey Pajitnov, travel to the USSR and get Tetris out of the Iron Curtain.

Actors: Taron Egerton, Nikita Efremov, Mara Huf, Miles Barrow
Production: Apple

Communism, KGB, history of video games... we are faced with a good and refreshing combination of factors that Apple brings to the fore in a careful and pampered way.

A good proposal for all audiences.
