Earth’s future has been riddled by disasters, famines, and droughts. There is only one way to ensure mankind’s survival: Interstellar travel. A newly discovered wormhole in the far reaches of our solar system allows a team of astronauts to go where no man has gone before, a planet that may have the right environment to sustain human life.

Guardian Review – 4 stars

Interstellar review – if it’s spectacle you want, this delivers. Despite a plot full of holes of various kinds, Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi epic remains enthralling and amazing

Storyline

With many people fearing the actions of super heroes, the government decides to push for the Hero Registration Act, a law that limits a hero’s actions. This results in a division in The Avengers. Iron Man stands with this Act, claiming that their actions must be kept in check otherwise cities will continue to be destroyed, but Captain America feels that saving the world is daring enough and that they cannot rely on the government to protect the world. This escalates into an all-out war between Team Iron Man (Iron Man, Black Panther, Vision, Black Widow, War Machine, and Spiderman) and Team Captain America (Captain America, Bucky Barnes, Falcon, Sharon Carter, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, and Ant Man) while a new villain emerges.

Guardian Review – 4 stars

Captain America: Civil War review – an aspartame rush.

Entertaining mayhem ensues when some of the Avengers reject government oversight following a botched operation

Storyline

In the cold war, a lawyer, James B. Donovan is recruited by the CIA and involved in an intense negotiation mission to release and exchange a CIA U-2 spy-plane pilot, Francis G. Powers. The pilot was arrested alive after his plane was shot down by the Soviet Union during a mission and stays in the company of a KGB intelligence officer, Rudolf Abel, who was arrested for espionage in the US.

Guardian Review – 5 stars

Tom Hanks and Mark Rylance red hot in Steven Spielberg’s magnificent cold war thriller. The tense negotiations over the recovery of U2 pilot Gary Powers in 1960s Berlin are the real-life backdrop to this wonderfully uncynical thriller scripted by the Coen brothers

RottenTomatoes Review – 91%

Critics Consensus: Bridge of Spies finds new life in Hollywood’s classic Cold War espionage thriller formula, thanks to reliably outstanding work from Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks.
