Starring Gene Hackman and Roy Scheider, The French Connection is truly a classic thriller/action film.

As he gets closer and closer to taking down the French drug dealers, everything around him goes to hell. The film features one of the greatest car chase scenes in cinematic history — one that will get your heart pumping and have you feeling like you are in the car yourself. With his life on the line due to the nature of his case, it isn’t a certainty that Detective Doyle survives his mission.

We are used to The Avengers coming together to fight against evil, but what happens when the elite team of superheroes splinters? In Captain America: Civil War, we learn the answer to that question. As a result of the government’s decision to push the Hero Registration Act — a law that diminishes the impact of superheroes — two of The Avengers’ biggest heroes are pitted against each other.

On one side of the war is Team Captain America, consisting of Bucky Barnes, Falcon, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, and Ant Man. Captain America and his team are opposed by Team Iron Man. Led by Tony Stark himself, Team Iron Man also includes Black Panther, Vision, Black Widow, War Machine, and Spider-Man. Who will come out on top in this epic battle?
