Duwayne’s Pick: Mission Impossible: Fallout! I chose to accept this mission since the very first. But, it was not until the 4th movie in the series that it started getting really good. And the latest seems to be the best based on the trailers we have seen. There is so much great action sequences, but it’s tying into the last few movies that will take it to the next level hence the Fallout name.

Tim’s Pick: Agreeing with Duwayne, but I have some catch up to do, so Ms. CocktailsandMovies and I are taking in Ant Man & the Wasp as well.
