15:17 to Paris


Back in 2015, three Americans, one Brit, and two French nationals successfully subdued a terrorist before anyone was killed. These few minutes in which the attack took place cemented themselves as heroes. The attack last only a few minutes, and whilst the subject is an honourable one, it seems strange that a whole feature film would be dedicated to this short event.

The Avengers: Infinity War


Over 10 years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been leading to this precise moment. The first part of The Avengers: Infinity War clearly marks the biggest movie of Marvel’s Universe, and its grand scale, infinite characters and multiple locations didn’t disappoint.
