  • Spider-Man: Far from Home Review

    After the marathon that was Avengers: Endgame, it’s only appropriate that the following addition to the MCU would be a laidback vacation. At least that’s what Peter Parker is looking for in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

  • Limbo Review

    While El-Masry has had supporting roles in blockbusters like The Rise of Skywalker and high-profile shows like Jack Ryan, Limbo is perhaps the best representation of his acting potential.

    Diane Lane's lead performance in 'Let Him Go' was awesome. She should definitely be on the list for Best Actress. I loved it. Tense, atmospheric and 'edge of your seat' in places.
