Recently two big movies got released on Netflix, these being The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Project T / Tomorrowland (depending on what country you live in). Both movies are about a better and brighter future for us all. If you were to watch one of them this weekend, I’d advise you to at least give Tomorrowland a go, since this feelgood movie will certainly make you want to fight and believe in a better world.
